My family doesn't go out to the movies very often, but I do love to watch a good movie.  My husband makes fun of all the old black and white movies I watch, asking why I like all those TCM movies.  My love of old movies began when I grew up outside of Atlanta watching TBS, basically these same old movies on the weekend.  My favorite was always Some like it hot.  I actually own it so I can see it any time. 

To create my layout I took the following steps:

  • Ink edges of all pieces to start as as you go along
  • Layer Movie acetate over 12x12 white card stock
  • Cut Starring Role paper into strips, I cut the film roll and the starring role strips, also a tiny strip of film roll numbers for vertical layer
  • Fussy cut stars from Starring Role paper
  • Layer photo on white card stock with 1/8" border 
  • Cut 10" white strip to layer behind photo and use as journal strip
  • Place strip of black bling along bottom of film strip paper across top of page
  • Pierce holes for fancy brads
  • Scatter multiple sizes of clear bling to highlight photo and star cluser

Here's a photo of my cluster:
