After we filled a box or two of tapes for donation, there were a couple of old friends that I just couldn't bear to part with; dvds are better in so many ways, but I saved a few boxes of a few very favorite VHS tapes, thinking someday I might turn them into notebook covers or... something. I used "It's a Wonderful Life" last year for my Journal Your Christmas 2010 album. (Check out Shimelle's blog for info on my favorite project of the year!)
And this week I was thrilled to use "When Harry Met Sally" for a mini-album all about our favorite movies set in New York City! WM[squared] introduced a new addition to her Great Escape kit, Great Escape: New York, and after puzzling over what to do with it, I finally realized that I wanted to journal a bit about these favorite films!
This time, though, I flipped the box covers over so I could decorate the outsides, and see the movie images on the inside covers of my book.
I used the same journaling block on each page to tell a bit about the movie and why I love it, and added embellishments from the kit that coordinated with the movie itself.
I used the Zutter Bind-it-All and page protectors; the inner pages are just inexpensive 4x6 photo prints. And there are still several movies I need to add!!
And... doing this project made me realize that I also need to do movie journals of London and Chicago movies! *sigh* It never ends!! So if you need me, I'll be out scouring Goodwill stores for VHS copies of "Notting Hill" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"...! :)
