I was SO excited to stamp with this set. I love movies, I love popcorn, I love candy, I love soda... what more could I ask for? I started by stamping my image in Memento black and coloring with Copic markers. I decided to paper piece the couch using some SU patterned paper I had. There were a couple small pieces, but it was reasonably easy to do. After paper piecing, I stamped, colored and cut out only the popcorn and adhered that OVER my couch paper piecing. I decided to make my bowl GLASS, so after the paper piecing was in place, I went over the bowl with a Sakura Glaze Pen to give it the shine I needed, which distinguished it from the couch.

I even finished off the inside of the card with some cute accessory images that come in the set.

As I was working on my card, I decided I was going to make some fun things to go with it and asked my hubby to run to the store to get me some "movie candy"... you know... the overpriced stuff that comes in a box, but has LESS candy in it that "normally" packaged candy? LOL Thankfully, he was able to get it at Walmart for $1, instead of at the movies for $3. As I was rambling off my list to him, he suggested that if the set was called Chick Flick, I should definitely include some Kleenex in my gift set. I love that man. SO clever! :) I guess you now know that I cry during movies. Confession: I am a sappy girl. I didn't just want to throw some Kleenex in, so I decided to make a Kleenex sleeve instead.

Kleenex sleeve directions:
  • Cut card stock to 6 3/4 X 4 1/4
  • Score at 3/4, 3, 3 3/4, 6
  • Adhere ends together
  • Decorate as desired
  • If your mini Kleenex pack is too big for these measurements (mine was a tight fit), use the following dimensions instead: cut card stock to 4 1/4 X 7 1/2 and score at 1, 3 1/4, 4 1/4, 6 1/2. If I was making this again, I would use these dimensions.
No chick flick is complete without popcorn, so I made a popcorn sleeve that holds 2 standard-sized microwave popcorn packages.

Isn't the sentiment adorable? I just love it.

Popcorn sleeve directions:
  • Cut card stock to 4 1/2 X 10 1/2
  • Score at 1, 4 3/4, 5 3/4, 9 1/2
  • Adhere ends together
  • Decorate as desired
  • If for any reason, your popcorn bags don't fit using the dimensions above, simply adjust the score lines/paper length as needed.

Are you ready to POP on over to your next stop on the hop? (Pun intended LOL) POP (yes, really... I used the same pun twice in a row... I can't help it LOL) on over to Melody's blog! I am certain she will have something jaw-dropping gorgeous to show you... she ALWAYS does. :)

Question of the day: Since we are on the subject of chick flicks, I MUST ask you... What is YOUR favorite chick flick? You know... so quirky it makes you laugh... so sad it makes you cry... so sweet it makes your teeth hurt... LOL You can list one or more if you can't decide upon one favorite!

I'll go first. :) I have a STACK of chick flicks in my stamp room. I LOVE watching listening to movies while I stamp. There are some that I am surprised have not been worn out from all the times I have watched them. LOL Here is my "short list" of favorite chick flicks:
  • Made of Honor (LOVE this one)
  • The Proposal
  • The Break Up (kinda ironic that I listed those after one another LOL)
  • Sweet Home Alabama
  • P.S. I Love You
  • The Lake House
  • The Holiday
  • New in Town
  • Just Married
  • 13 Going on 30
  • And if you want to cry and ruin your stamping experience... The Notebook
OK, YOUR turn. :)

    As for movies: well I llove your list --- I think my 'order would be diffferent, but I would add Ugly Truth as well!

  37. Oh my gosh this is the cutest! Love the glossy on the popcorn bowl. Is Bridges of Madison County a chick flick? It must be cause I cry every single time and I'm sure I've seen it at least 6 times.

  38. I TRIED to limit myself to a mere dozen or so but stopped myself on my first list at 28 ...

    here it is, whittled down to a respectable number: an affair to remember, an american president, the bucket list, daddy long legs, the family man, finding forester, grand canyon, the jane austen book club, just like heaven, the lake house, LA story, life as a house, meet joe black, notebook, sleepless in seattle, under the tuscan sun, the thomas crown affair (either version), while you were sleeping, the wedding date, and you've got mail.

    there's prob'ly more that my kid's borrowed that I can't recall now! can you tell I LOVE movies?! a couple close friends and I get together for chick flicks every 4-6 weeks or so. this is a GREAT stamp set - TFS!

  39. I love this set - so fabulous! Brilliant paper piecing too.

    Chick flicks.... my fave kind of flick! Amongst loads of those already mentionned, I love:

    * A Lot Like Love
