The One with Movie Associations

Saturday, January 9, 2010

Back in the good ol' days when I was working full time at American Crafts I did this crazy thing and watched our DVDs from A-Z (I started watching them on May 27th 2008 and finished January 2nd 2009. Yeah...we have a lot of movies...). On a good day with lots of designing on the computer, I could watch four movies. I dedicated an entire blog post to my movie watching mania. It's funny because now whenever I see a paper I've designed, it totally brings back memories of the movie I was watching at the time. For example, every time I see this paper:

I think of the movie It.

Creepy right? Haha.
And whenever I see this paper:

I think of the movie Hocus Pocus.

Much more appropriate.
It was fun watching a Halloween movie while designing Halloween stuff, even though it was August (August 19th 2008 to be exact).

This movie association happens with layouts I make, too. I like to watch movies when I scrap and most recently I created two layouts for a spotlight that's going up tomorrow on Elle's Studio. So now whenever I see the following layout (just a sneak peek, full picture tomorrow)

I will think of A Knight's Tale.

RIP Heath Ledger :(
That's all :)


  1. Oh... I was so upset when he died... such a horrible thing!!

    I didn't know you designed those papers!! How cool...

    I don't know that I have ever seen the baby one before but that Halloween one is one of my favs from their Halloween line this year!

  2. Baby It! So funny and weird that those two are together.

  3. can't wait to see your layout!! :) so funny about the movies. i guess i think of kids movies/songs with mine- HA!

  4. wow, so awesome that you did work for A.C! i remember being so excited when the order forms came out for those designs when i worked in a scrapbooking store...

  5. haha, how funny that you associate the papers and layouts that you created with movies! :) I do the same thing sometimes with the layouts that I create in front of the tv. :)

  6. I love the papers that you designed! It's soo cool that you actually designed scrapbook products!!!

  7. Didn't know you designed paper too, Paige. I love that spooky house paper and have it in my stash.
    I do the association thing, too. Most of my layouts make me think of Dora, Backyardigans and the Wonder Pets, as I share my scrap space with my kid's tv/play room.

  8. Ohmigoodness, this is SO something I do!!! I can't think of one right now, but next time I do, I'll let you know! LOL.

    And watching your DVDs in A-Z order... that is cool. I've never thought about doing that. I usually watch/listen to Friends while I scrap because I pretty much know the whole ten seasons by heart. LOL. I also love to have fave movies on in the background. :-)
