Be Inspired #35: Favorite Movie

How are you on this wonderful Wednesday? I'm having a pretty wonderful day around here. We made it home last night and it was great to be home. It's cloudy and has rained softly almost all morning. Loving it!

This week at Cuttlebug Challenge, we were asked to create a card/project inspired by our favorite movie. I did take a few basics with me to my in-laws so I could get some projects done. I for some reason did not take my cuttlebug - well, I was traveling light and didn't realize that I really needed it! A quick side-trip to Michaels to see what they had I could work with.

My favorite movie is The Magic of Ordinary Days. It's a Hallmark movie that you really should see. I was thinking I would have to go with another favorite but then I spied the Thanks embossing folder. One of my favorite scenes from the movie takes place at Thanksgiving and Livy, the main character, expresses her thankfulness for the Singleton family.

A thank you card in browns, whites and creams. You may be wondering how I embossed with no machine? Well, luckily enough, Tonya, once shared with me that she uses a rolling pin to emboss! I tried it out and got pretty good results. I also went over a few sections with a book and rubber mallet. It worked, but I am ever so thankful that I actually have a machine to do it for me lickety split!

Be sure to stop by the Cuttlebug Challenge blog and see what the rest of the team came up with! Vintage Plum is the sponsor this week and one participant will win one of their monthly kits!

What an elegant card Cassie and the rolling pin worked amazingly! I've heard of this technique but didn't think it would turn out great. Boy was I wrong, I would have never known you didn't use your Cuttlebug.
You need to stop by Christian Papercrafts Magazine sometime, you would love it! The links on my page.
