Earlier in the year I created a VHS video travelers notebook using a Citrus Twist kit – I was a woman possessed and I had so much fun creating this bonkers 80’s idea to store my favourite movie lists.
I knew that in my December documenting I wanted to include a list of my Top 5 Christmas movies and I had a complete lightbulb moment that I could recreate the VHS, but with a festive spin!
I used the candy stripe paper and a template from my printable store to cut out the various parts of the video. I used foam pads to raise up parts of the VHS so it had a fun 3D look. I added another more muted gold snowflake paper along with a journal card which I cut up and added puffy alphas and a gold puffy word from the Sparkle and Joy kit to spell out my ‘movie magic’ title.
I cut one of the chipboard stickers in half to use for the video’s cassette reel and some black cardstock from my stash to create the reel of tape itself.
I’m a bit obsessed with adding fun interactive elements to my documenting and this was no exception. On the reverse of the VHS I added a background of mint and white Christmas trees using four of the digital journal cards side by side to create a paper. I fussy cut out the digital labels and added my top 5 Christmas movies to each one. I used the red alphas to spell out Christmas and also used the red numbers to highlight where each movie ranked in my top 5.
Thanks so much
