Hello Wendy,do you know i'm not sure i'd use it at all.just hang it in front of my work desk OR i'd use it to put a photo of each of my grandchildren behind and put it onto a prepared piece of grungeboard,using distress inks and your stamps, luv georginaxx

Southern Cricut said...

I will use in on a canvas collage I am working on that has a lot of Tim Holtz things on it like adage tickets, keys, word sticks and such. I was not able to get the film strips, tried to order it from ecletric paperie and they were always out, and have had a hard time finding it. I would really love to win some so I could put it on this collage to hang in my craft room.

Lisa said...

Hi Wendy
I have many things in mind I could use it for. But 2 that I am sure of is. One I have tons of old black and white 40's and 50's photos of my grandparents that I need to scrap. This ribbon would be great to add to the layouts.
The other is I have some old Slides and photos of when my grandparents went to Jerusalem that I want to use to make a wall hanging/collage for my Mom for Christmas. This ribbon would be a great addition to add to it.

Love all of your ideas and I Love reading your blog. Every time I do I get inspired to go create something.

Thanks for the chance to win and have a Great weekend!!!

Margie H said...

You are such a tease!!! I am so curious on what you're up to! But I'll take any kind of photo to keep me guessing!

The Film Strip Ribbon will go everywhere...layouts, altered arts, cards...EVERYWHERE! LOL! Can't seem to find them.

Hey, have a FUN/FANTASTIC trip down to St. Louis! Can't wait to see pictures!!!! HINT: Take camera, take pictures! LOL!! Safe journeys, friend! xo

Kathy said...

Not sure if it would work, but your comment about having so much that you could wrap it around your house gave me an idea! I think I'd try cutting it and using it as window panes for a MR house.....the big one, of course. The houses have to be my favorite alterable item that they've ever come up with!
Kathy from NH

Nancy said...

I'm putting together a travel journal for the cruise - the ribbon would be great to use with some of the pages!

Can't wait to get my hands on some of your stamps & the stamp binder onboard ... I'm trying so hard to be good until then! :o)

Have a great time in St. Louis!

scrapcraft said...

I would love to use it on one of my art boxes!!

Liz said...

I would use this on my school pictures page for this year. Think it would be a cool look.

Chirpin Is Fun said...

I want to use it on a couple of the "just dream" wall hangings like we did in the workshop. I want to do a project with index prints (like tim did) for my nephew's pictures, I have an idea for a card using the house mouse stamp where he is behind the camera and the filmstrip ribbon will be perfect for that! I know I already ordered some, but I don't think I have enough to wrap around my house yet! lol Wish I could go to st louis this weekend or on the cruise with you in october! Keep making art, Wendy, your art inspires mine!

Aprile

Linda Elbourne said...

I would use it on a mini book ... put lots of little photos in it ... Original huh????? *LOL*

As for the tin ... I just want to alter it and fill it with dreams :0)

Have FUN Wendy Vecchi ... you have earned it X

Kathy said...

That is a lot of film strip ribbon! I would use it on a graphic 45 vintage album I am doing. It would look great with some heritage pictures of have of my husbands family. I love what you do with grunge paper, you rock!

SusanK said...

I'm thinking bows on grunge packages. Can't wait to get some in my hands to see if it translates into my vision.

SusanK said...

I know what pic #2 is & can't wait to see what you have in mind. Hmmm. Too bad I can't go on the cruise. Would love to see what is in store for everyone. Maybe next time!

michelle said...

I was wondering if I could use it for a bottom of a lamp shade. .. I have a camera that went to WW II with a my DH Uncle and I thought some books the camera and a cool shade would be a great present for him. . .

Barb said...

I would use it with the heritage layouts....can't wait to staple it on with Tim's attacher!

Debby said...

Love how you tease the cruisers. Hahaha! Film strip ribbon? I love your use as glasses. It would make a great border on ATC's, use in the memory glass slides as a covering over a vintage photo. I can't wait to get my hands on some of it. Even in the art journals it will make a cool grungy look. Have a blast this weekend!

Erica - CopperSunSilverMoon said...

I would love to add the ribbon to some Halloween tags, maybe put some letters behind the frames.

Holly said...

I would use it on some tags for my pages, would love to use it on an ATC. Thanks for the chance!

Anita said...

I would love to use it on the scrapbook pages of my DH's summer photography class that he taught.

Kathy Eddy said...

I will use it on layouts with lots of distress and grunge and atcs and cards and altered book pages and canvases, .... so you see I need a lot of it! LOL Kathy Eddy

Elaine A said...

Boy are you a tease Wendy! As to what I'd do with the filmstrip ribbon, well the obvious thing would be to add photos to it, either using photo contact sheets or photos I alter in Photoshop Elements. But I think I want to hold it in my hands and do some experimenting with it, let it speak to me. Maybe incorporate it into a piece of jewelry.

Elaine Allen

Miss Iowa said...

HAHA! Those poor people going on the cruise are going to need a Xanax by the time you get done with them. As for the film strip, I would definitely use some to decorate a chipboard Family album I'm working on right now of my dad and his siblings when they were children growing up during the 1930s and 1940s. I think it will give some of the pages a great vintage look.

Kirstin said...

ooooh!! I want to use it on a 12x12 canvas using paint, embossed metal and grunge for a mixed media(ish) wall hanging!! My LSS still doesn't have this in stock but I keep looking!

Rhonda said...

Those film strips would go on everything, Cubs collage that I'm working on (they need all the creative help they can get!), scrapbook pages, heritage pieces, the list goes on and on.
Thanks Wendy!

Pat W said...

I'd put tiny little pictures in them. Can't wait to get some!

Tona said...

Hmmm, I would have to have it in my hand & let it "tell" me what to do with it but my 1st thoughts are to use it on a card or a tag that will become part of a card...maybe on a scrapbook layout with old photos.

Joyce said...

Well my LSS has received 2 shipments of the film ribbon and sold out before I could even get some. SO, I would love to win a canister of this stuff. I like the size so I ask, what wouldn't you use it on? But with Halloween coming up, it would be great for several Halloween projects.

Michele K said...

I would make a layout (probably of my niece, Alexis) and I would run the filmstrip across the bottom of the layout and put her name (letter by letter) peeking through the openings. The colored pic of your new purchase appears to possibly be large colored cotton balls??? Oh, I also wanted to remind you. Do not forget to pack your camera for your cruise! We want to see lots of pictures of the fun you will be having!!! Take care and have a safe trip to St. Louis...

Tiger said...

I would use it on an altered journal I am working on. Hey....those packages look like wool roving! Am I right? Some felting projects coming up?

borcherding said...

Isn't it obvious how I'd use it? In my scrapbooks and making cards. LOL!! I am in the process of making "A Week In the Life" scrapbook and I would DEFINITELY use it in there. I have all my pictures taken..just collected supplies to use and this would be GREAT!! ;-)

Linda said...

First thing that came to mind on what I'd use the filmstrip ribbon for would be a cruise album! 16 days and counting!

Linda

Mel♥ said...

Thanks for the chance! My FS idea it to stamp on it and make my own design on top!!!

Priscilla said...

I'll just embellish, embellish, and embellish with it. You can never have enough embellishments, can you?

nancy said...

I would definitely use it on something related to the cruise -- maybe a layout or altered item. I'm sure that I will learn a way to use it with either you or Tim!

Michelle said...

I'm thinking of using it for wedding favors for my niece's wedding. Each wedding attendee will get a mini-shopping bag (the bride is a shopaholic) with a lottery ticket in it "Lucky in Love", and I am thinking of putting the film ribbon around the shopping bag.
MichelleB

Sue Benedick said...

Wendy I will be at For Keep Sake on Sat. Can't wait! I recently found several old photo albums, that need to be redone. I think the film strip would be a great imbelishment for them.
Sue

Shelley Haganman said...

I would so love to have some of that filmstrip!

louann said...

I am thinking of using some on a calendar page, and putting small photos of the grandkids under it. What a fun item this is going to be to play with. Thanks for ordering so much.

WheatLDee said...

My daughter graduated from high school and I was thinking of a scrapbook layout using little snapshots from over the school years to highlight her journey. That filmstrip ribbon would look AMAZING. If only I had some to use. Keeping my fingers crossed.... thanks for sharing some of your "stash". :)

Rockin Robin Caldwell said...

Wendy...I can't tell you what I would do with some of the film strip ribbon. I have to hold it in my hand and look at it for a while...wait for it so "speak to me" as it were. Sometimes, I know right away what I want to do with something, but this...not yet. I haven't seen any of it IRL yet. But, I'm sure it's fab!!! Hisses, Rockin Robin Caldwell

Rachel said...

I'm completely uninspired by the film. I mean, I could weave ribbon through it for a funky embellishment. And then weave the film strip into a fabric and make a mask from it. Or use it in collaged soldered pendants. Maybe it to frame letters in a word - probably Bite Me! Or put it over tiny images of cities I love to make a little travelogue.

But other than that, I'm completely uninspired!

divester said...

I would like to use it if I can WIN it on a photo album I am working on for my kids. My father was big on taking pictures of our family growing up and I do the same and I am working on a generation album to give each of my 3 children. I am using the old slide covers also and I think the film strip would be PERFECT for a border on each page. Thank you for inspiring me. I am working on getting all of your stamps - I have 10 so I am getting there. So much fun to create with.

Debby said...

I would love to use it in creating an altered canvas! I've seen this in person at CHA and it is awesome. I love to have a few feet!!

iring said...

That film stip ribbon looks so cool in pictures, haven't seen it for real yet. I would probably use it on cards. How about photo cards? Or tags, maybe tags ... can't wait to see some!

Ms. Cheryl said...

Wendy,
I would use the filmstrip ribbon on my page that showcases one of our family Christmas days last year. We celebrated Christmas once a week for the 4 weeks in December last year. Each week had a different theme, one of which was "the MOVIE week". I am also making a story box about last Christmas and I would also use it there.
PICK ME ... thanks, ms.cheryl

buglady said...

I would love to use some of that filmstrip ribbon on some of my scrapbook pages. Would have to think about what photos would go best with it. I am thinking some tropical garden photos would look nice or maybe some vintage photos.

Char- The Mad Shopper said...

I am working on a mixed media project about Glamour Women in Hollywood, and this would go perfect in it.

Dianal said...

Wow another great giveaway Wendy.
I would take the filmstrip and use it in a mini album and add pictures from when my son started
school until he graduated from university and call it something like "school days captured on film"
or the "journey begins".

Elaine said...

The one baggie looks like a smooshed egg yolk! YUCK! LOL And I wish I could join you all at the TRUCK load sale! What fun you'll all have!!!!

paperqueen said...

Well, not having it in front of me, I don't actually have a plan (yet), but would love to incorporate it somehow in some jewelry ideas I have.
Eileen

Betty said...

I'd like to try the ribbon on a Christmas package using a grunged up "Wendy" poinsettia for a bow. It would also be great for scrapbooking mini photos taken at Universal Studios and Grauman's Chinese Theater.
Betty P

Susan said...

Well, I'm not sure of how I'd use it but I'm kind of seeing a little strip of cute little photos with this tape - kind of like those old photo booths?? Pick me please!

klasickewpie said...

I'd use Tim's film strip ribbon as a neck cord to make a necklace with and attach one of Wendy's grunge flowers. Then I can have two of my favorite artists close to me at all times. Perhaps some of their creative energy will be bestowed on me through it. Thanks again for another chance at this wonderful ribbon.

Susan said...

I'd use it as an embellishment for heritage pages or as word titles with one letter per "frame." Can't wait to see this for real.
Susan

Sherry Goodloe said...

Don't ask me WHY, maybe because I just washed my sneakers, but I would use some to replace my shoe strings! LOL OOoooh and maybe use some for a necklace in place of a chain for a soldered charm that holds a vintage photo . . .

Far North said...

First I want to see if I can play with the new alcohol ink pens on it and test if inchies fit inside the frames and if so I am not telling the rest of the story cause it is a Christmas surprise. It that does work it will make great bows or hangers for grungeboard or........You get the idea! Thanks for the drawing!

fjellgeit06 said...

HI Wendy!

When my son was four years old, he get his first camera, a one-time camera who was waterproof. I let him do what he want with it. He make a bunch of funny pictures. When I get it back it was a indexpage with samll pictures in the envelope. I want to use this in the filmstrips behind the bigger pictures in his album. It will also be perfect to use in tags.
I can't wait to get this filmstrip in my hands....
Pleeeease let me win....

Thanks for this chans to get it in my hand.

Hugs
Trine

Alyce said...

One of the ideas I have is to use it on an altered tin. Thanks for the chance to win some.

Dorothy said...

I love this ribbon and I would use it with the little teeny tiny pics you get when you order pics. You know, the index i guess you could call it.
I would cut them up and actually adhere them to the ribbon and make a page or a card or a tag.
Dorothy

Dawn said...

Hi Wendy, Lets try this again and see if I win. I would use it on my tags, and tins. I had such a great time making tins for a swap, that now i want to make more of them. I think the ribbon would make an excellent embli on the tins, sooooo PICK ME PLEAASE!
Dawn in MB SC :)

texasbarb said...

i think the film strip would go great on ATC's. I'm also thinking of trying them out on scrapbook pages....oh the possibilities!!!!!!

I'm going to fix a special place for the filmstrip ribbon to come and live at MY house...LOL...I never win anything but it's fun to think it might be possible each time!!

Nancy said...

I'm not sure what I would use the ribbon for yet, but I know if I had some I would find many uses for it. I do a lot of tags and ATC's and I think it would be perfect to use it on them with old black & white or even Sepia photos. Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful ribbon.

Cyn said...

First off the can itself is adorable!!! I would use the film strip ribbon to start an album of Our First Grand Daughter..Ayva..she will be arriving in Feb 2010!

Wanda H said...

I'd love some film strip ribbon to take away my sadness at not being able to go to St. Louis and see you in person!!! :-) That colorful picture looks like fibers for felting???? Hmmm... maybe I should felt something today. Oh, also love the picture of all the snaps... wow... hmm... maybe I'll felt and snap today, lolol.

detentiondeb53 said...

I'm imagining a cool eerie border on some Halloween tags I'm doing. But I also like the idea of trying to make a bow! The tin offers lots of possibilities too!
Love your blog!
Thanks!
Debbie Stefani

A Matos said...

I have a great idea for the TH film strip....there are b&w photos from the Lake Crescent in the 1970's. I am floating around in an innertube in the Florida Sunshine. The filmstrip will be a great accent to these photos.

Shannon said...

I would love to use this on several pages....or maybe an altered project....thanks for the opportunity....

lotsa scrap said...

I'd love to win this ribbon! I like how we used it in your workshop and probably will use it that way again. I also want to try putting the tiny photos behind it. I like that mouse idea--I'm going to have to check that one out. And I will be using it every which way on my scrapbook layouts. Thanks for another giveaway!

Debs Doodles and More said...

thanks Wendy for a chance at a great give away.
i can think of many uses for the new ribbon, but mainly I am waiting to just be able to hold it in my hands and appreciate it! Love the tin it comes in too !!
My first project is a card with an awesome old b&w photo all distressed, tied all up with a pretty bow
Deb

Loretta said...

I would use it with photos from the fifties.

becky said...

i would use the film strip ribbon to accent anything, lol...i would probably decorate the tin & add a magnet to the back so i could store things in it on my magnet board!

Diane D. said...

Love Tims knew film strips and the typewriter keys.
DianeD.

Erin Glee said...

I would like to try using the filmstrip ribbon on a layout with index photos the way Tim did and I would use the cute metal tin for SNAPS! I loved your pictures of all those snaps in a big black bowl~OH HAPPY SNAPPER!

Sandra said...

scrap booking - I have a 50 anniversary album I need to finish up - I am sure it will come in handy!
Thanks for the fun!
Sandra

Julie said...

Probably the most important thing I learned from one of Wendy's classes at StampFest in Orlando, Florida was to take ordinary objects and incorporate them in unexpected and delightful ways. I'm sure there will be many creative ways to use the filmstrip ribbon other than the obvious.

funkycrafter said...

If I did win the filmstrip ribbon I would use some of it on a collage I have in mind for a family member's birthday. As for the rest of it...I'm sure I could figure out more uses. The cruise is sounding better every time it is mentioned. Maybe you will do it again next year. By then maybe I will have figured out a way for me to be able to be gone that long.

Sue said...

To be honest I just want to see and hold some of this ribbon... then I will know where I will use it. I am very curious and so excited to get a chance to actually have some of my very own! :) Sue

Lori said...

Maybe as an overlay for letters or numbers? Would love to try some! Thanks for the opportunity!

Daisy Girl said...

Hi there,
I will use the ribbon when I scrapbook the photos of my son making a movie...he discovered that our computer had a movie program..it was so cool to watch him go around our house taking photos and then taking those photos and working with his Dad to put them in the movie program with words...His Dad even burned it to a disc whihc my son flipped with excitement over!...gotta love being 7 yr old!

Scrapbookers in Greece said...

i think i know what it is!!! is it merino wool that you make felt out of it with wetfelting or needle felting techniques??
http://elina.typepad.com

Karen Ellis said...

Film Strip Ribbon! OMG.. Love it! I can't seem to get the image of the piece that had two ribbon "squares" over the eyes of a stamped face. Loved that. I totally see me using the ribbon as part of my collage art. But I can also see it in my scrapbooking as travel snipets (photos behind)and or photo shoot "out takes". This stuff is hard to get a hold of... Can't wait until I can use it!
Karen

sue wisniewski said...

I just think the filmstrip ribbon would be great to tie up a gift or use as embellishment on a card.
stamping sue

Kim said...

I can't wait to use it on my layouts!! You used it as glasses, and I think that would be as cute as can be on a pic of my lab:) I loved using it your class yesterday:) Thanks so much!!

Becky T. said...

Film strip ribbon would be perfect for... making art! I love to do thumb print pics to get more on a layout so that is what I'd use it for. :-)

Etta said...

I'm not exactly sure how I will use. But I already bought some to have on hand when that ah ha moment hits me!As you would say, you can never have too much!

kim-paperbabe said...

MMmmm probably spend a day trying out loads of different things with the tape and hope for some of those happy accidents that occasionally occur...


But without a doubt Wendy your rose tutorial is fab and I had a little go myself you can see a little pic here but be sure there's bound to be more to come LOL! thank you HuGs Kim :)

MarleneMAZ said...

ooh I would love some of this, not sure what I am more excited about the ribbon or the tin !!

kokomogoldie said...

I would use it on some word books I'm doing along with all the other ideaology stuff I have on them. Thanks for sharing!

RobinG said...

I would use it on the cover of a fabric journal (and on random pages as well).
I did not realize YOU were at the ForKeepsSake trunk show! I was there, too! great show!
RobinG

Donna said...

Oh you are such a tease!~! Only 2 weeks WHOO HOO!!! I am so excited!!
I would love some of that fun film strip ribbon!!
Thanks for the chance Wendy~~!!

Jayne said...

How would I use the filmstrip ribbon? Wow! It's so great, it'd make a terrific border on so many pieces and I'd love to fill in the individual windows and see what develops there, too. Thanks for such a great blog, Wendy, and for such great stamps! love them.

Gerrie Johnnic said...

I am dying to get my hands on these, they are really "must haves"! I'll fill the windows with words and vintage photos, flowers, butterflies, you name it, when I get my hands on these film strips...they'll be on every piece of paper and altered art I make! Hugz for the opportunity GF!

theng said...

I'm thinking of a series of pics of my niece riding the bike, or baby eating cake. You know those photos which you can't choose one of, all are important and cute.
Or an ornament - I haven't thought of exactly how to make it up. Pls send me some so that I can try. hee!

scrapnrn said...

I would use the filmstrip ribbon to hang an altered piece I am doing for my scrap room and I would also use it on cards. Got to go to For Keeps Sake today to the truck show, love your stamps, wish I could have been there when you were.

Sharon said...

No real shareable ideas...my own use will be art work including a reference to film strip in a poem...but I would like to say that I always find your blog so upbeat...I always leave with a smile in my heart. Thanks.

Faerielore said...

thanks for the chance of winning, i would love to use some film strip on scraobook pages but also would love to have a go with some on an art journal page

KAT said...

I see it as dragon fly wings, used inside the larger memory capsules to add and extra layer and hmmmmm maybe on a 13 day away cruise in a mexico scrapbook???

Traci said...

Hmmmm....I want to use it to showcase words and the tin would be super cool used as an embellie filled with goodies!

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Firstly Wendy, does the little idea you've got brewing involve wool tops perhaps? ;) I do hope not having a really good idea or wacky idea for the filmstrip will preclude me as I'm not good with ideas. It would work great with my 'Vintage Nudes' stamp however and some may find it's way onto one or two Christmas cards as windows :)
Anne (UK) xx

Erin Glee said...

Hey Wendy! I thought of an idea to use the sample Film Strip on the outside of the packages. Cut a slit down to the eyelet, with you Handy Dandy Tim Holz scissors, being careful not to cut the Film. Remove eyelet, texture hammer tighter around ribbon.

Erin Glee said...

Cont.~ Create a BANNER stamping a letter (in StazOn?) on each ribbon and making spacers with the teeniest Grungeflower you have ever seen on a ribbon. Example: (flower-film) ART (flower-film) BY (flowerfilm) WENDY (flowerfilm)... itwould make a neat little booth decoration or maybe part of a necklace. I don't know if this will work because I've never had the honor of holding Film Strip ribbon in my hands, but it came to me... Yeah like the Cruise Kitting Queen has time to try this!
Love your blog! Just a thought~ Erin : )

Erin Glee said...

P.S.~ Jump Idea-Ology jump rings in the eyelets would help them hang straight, and knotting the jump rings on a string would keep them spaced out evenly.

Mary said...

Yes I do. Thanks for sharing!

Deirdre said...

Wendy
Would use it on my christmas tags to give them a really completely different look from the traditional. Thanks for the chance to win.!

filmstrip picture frame said...

Hello,
Great blog i like it
Some ideas to decorate in style include: life size cut outs of famous actresses and actors, movie reel tins centerpieces (type 'movie reel centerpiece' in search), large clapboards that you personalize, 'walk of fame' stars (you could make your own and include family and friends names on them), and of course balloons with a Hollywood theme.
