Twilighters
 
I'm not sure if this is ok to post, so I guess a mod will let me know...

I'm starting to read the whole saga again. I loaned my copy of Twilight to my mom so I'm reading New Moon again. I just love this series!! Anyway, I decided to make some Twilight inspired projects and wanted to share the link with all my fellow Twilighters... http://www.stamphappens.com/stamp_ha...-can-neve.html

Hope to see some other projects!

Cute shoes! Love Bella's shoe. :) BTW, we are "related" Linda G. is my 5 level upline.

stampvamp 09-23-2008 04:46 PM

Thanks! Linda actually is not my upline but my new friend!! We'll still be "related" though...!! I love that thank you card on your blog! It's really pretty.

ellepaul 09-24-2008 07:09 AM

What a great idea! You did a wonderful job on those.

So what are you going to do next?

stampvamp 09-24-2008 01:25 PM

I'm not exactly sure...but I do have the color combo I think. I'm going to use: Elegant Eggplant, Lavender Lace and Almost Amethyst. Or, it may be Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac, and *something*. I saw a combo similar to this on screen at church and it just struck me as "Twilight". I know, weird. lol!! Too bad we don't have some really cool cars. It'd be neat to do the Cullen cars. Any ideas?

ellepaul 09-26-2008 08:24 PM

I was thinking about using the Loads of Love Truck for Bella.

I am playing around with the idea to make something that looks like the covers of the books. Or maybe Bella's bracelet...

love the twilght tuesday idea!!! how fun!!
we have been chatting this series up in the unity forum as well!!

stampvamp 10-01-2008 07:19 AM

Oh, cool! I'll go check it out. I love discussing Twilight!

stampvamp 10-03-2008 08:31 AM

OME! I just bought my first Unity stamp. Anyone care to guess which??

ellepaul 10-03-2008 11:40 AM

LOL! I can only guess... :)

austamper 10-03-2008 12:05 PM

Best books I've ever read and this is such a great idea!

JMB073 10-04-2008 06:41 PM

Hey Twilighters -- just wanted to drop in and say hi! I am loving all of the Twilight presence on SCS (thanks to stampvamp, right?). I am re-reading the series right now as well -- although really, I just keep reading Twilight. That is the one with the most OME!, which is what I want to read about!

What is the Unity stamp that is referenced above -- is this Twilight-related too?

Here ya go!!! http://www.unitystampco.com/tags/6?page=4

JMB073 10-05-2008 07:38 AM

Thanks, stampvamp! I know which one of those I would need -- Team Edward all the way! Jacob really bugs.

austamper 10-05-2008 08:26 AM

Ya know I really love both but once I got onto book 4 it came back to Edward all the way!!!!!!!

JMB073 10-05-2008 10:31 AM

I think that Jacob bugs me just because I don't like him getting in the way of Edward! It's silly of me, really!

JMB073 10-08-2008 06:04 AM

Hey Twilighters! I just came across some GREAT new photos from Twilight and thought I'd share. You have got to see these - finally some photos that do Robert Pattinson justice! (So many of the photos don't.) Look for the one with Edward and Bella dancing -- sigh. There are also shots of him laughing, smiling, looking intense - great stuff! Follow this link and scroll down the page a bit.

Oooohhh! Thanks...going to check that out now. Yes, they are! I think I like yours best. Now I've got to go drool over the website you sent.


Hey, Twihards...did you see the new challenge for this week?

JMB073 10-08-2008 06:45 AM

Stampvamp, if you want to change to have the same photo in our avatars, feel free -- team Edward has to stick together! Mine came from the link that I posted above. And just WAIT until you see these new photos! You'll have to report back with your impressions. Also, I checked out your Twilight Tuesday challenge and wanted to do it, but I couldn't think of the FIRST THING to do that was high school-related. I guess I put that stuff too far behind me! Reading the books did bring me back, though.

stampvamp 10-08-2008 08:22 AM

Thanks! You are too generous...I may just do that. PICK ME OFF THE FLOOR!! I'm still wiping the drool off my mouth. That dancing scene...I couldn't breathe. There is so much unsaid in that picture that I totally understand. They nailed that one. The one where he is standing by the door...TOTAL swoon!! The one by the car, I love the intensity of his face. I love them all!!

SIGH

stampvamp 10-08-2008 08:25 AM

Hey Julie, your gallery is AWESOME...but if I start commenting on it all, its going to lead to an "If you give a pig a pancake" moment and I'll NEVER get to my stats homework I'm struggling with. Stats vs. Comments...I'm sure you know which my heart chooses...but head wins this time. FAB gallery!

Cute pictures! :)

I don't like his spikey hair though because in the book, that's not how he is described. But he does a great job with his looks like I imagine Edward does in the book. :)

thriftmau 10-08-2008 09:00 AM

I picked up Twilight (book 1) about a month ago, not really knowing anything about the series, read all four books cover to cover- they are so good! I am really excited about the Twilight movie(s)- I think all the actors are a perfect fit (I've seen Kristen Stewart in a few other movies and she truly is one of the best young actresses out there right now, and RPattz/Spunk Ransom is totally awesome as Edward) including all the Cullens. You all should check out MTV.com, they have an entire section dedicated to the Twilight movie with all kinds of interviews with the actors, director and Stephenie Meyer.

PS- You'll understand RPattz/Spunk Ransom if you visit the MTV site
http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/369195/moviemain.jhtml

JMB073 10-08-2008 09:15 AM

Oh my goodness, thriftmau, you called him SPUNK RANSOM!! I totally know the reference; I've seen that clip. Robert Pattinson really seems to have a sense of humor about all of this, doesn't he? He'll need it since it's going to be total madness once that movie comes out! Like you, I read the four books in about 10 days -- I don't know where I found the time!

I felt really hopeful about the movie seeing those new photos -- it just looks a lot like the way I imagined it while reading the book.

And stampvamp, thank you so much for your kind comments! I'm relatively new to this and nice words like that go A LONG WAY to keep me encouraged. I'm sure that's true for all of us, though.

So, is it okay that we're discussing this non-stamping stuff in this forum?

thriftmau 10-08-2008 12:23 PM

LOL! :D Rob's sense of humor is so GREAT! It certainly is "madness"- but I'm gleefully a part of it!

I think Rob and Kristen have such a great chemistry, in the film trailers and all the interviews I've seen with them together. I am definitely on TEAM EDWARD! Kellan Lutz (Emmett) and Jackson Rathbone (Jasper) are keeping me in stitches- they are perfect for the parts!

I'm actually on my second go around of the series, almost finished w/ Eclipse, hopefully will be finished with Breaking Dawn before next weekend!

JMB073 10-08-2008 12:32 PM

I'm with you on that, thriftmau, I like the madness too! I'm in the middle of round three of the books (I'm on New Moon right now), although I've only read Breaking Dawn once.

I just saw that you have yet to start a gallery (I just tried to visit, to comment). You'll have to let us know when you start! I'm always delighted to see comments on my cards, and I love leaving them for others as well!

bonbonstamps 10-08-2008 12:43 PM

Call me crazy, but I think I'm converting to Team James. He's irresistable when he says "Oh, you brought a snack." And those abs! Those are the abs that Rob needs to have for the meadow scene. LOL

I liked the pics mentioned earlier and decided to use one for my new avatar. Thanks!

JMB073 10-08-2008 01:01 PM

Oh, that dancing photo! Is that one not unbelievable? How about the look on his face? Whew. I'm such a gushing fan-girl. I agree, "you brought a snack" is delivered really well. I didn't picture James as that handsome in the book!

hahahahha...awww...sigh. yeah. That Cam is one fine man. They need to bring him back as another character or something. He is definitely some awesome eye candy. And his real life personality is awesome too. I love watching him. He seems to have this undercurrent of sexuality/confidence and sweetness that makes his girlfriend one luuuuccckkkkyyyy girl.

As far as the abs go...I was wondering if that's why Edward wears long sleeves in the dance studio scene...

Yep, the prom pic is sweet and a bit steamy all at once. I likey! Glad you likey, too!

JMB073 10-08-2008 06:06 PM

You're funny. I see a whole lot of steamy in that shot! Man, how many days 'til movie comes out?????

Yes, I think it's best that Rob remain fully clothed in this movie. I hate that, because the Edward in my mind doesn't always stay fully clothed (especially when I think about the scene in Bella's bedroom before Edward goes off for his bachelor party--shirtless <drool>). Rob's body just can't compete with the mental image all of us perverted women have for Edward, though. Maybe if sequels are made, Rob can buff up for us. If not, I'll settle for the actor playing Jacob getting buff (and a few years older so I don't feel guilty). Jacob is the centerpiece of New Moon, anyway. That gives Rob plenty of time to get a hunky vampire bod like James/Cam's.

43 days! It will be more like 44 days for me, though, because I'm going to see it that Friday night (even if there is a midnight showing) with a bunch of women I work with. We're already excited about it.

thriftmau 10-09-2008 04:48 AM

In case you didn't know- the final Twilight trailer will be revealed today! Entertainment Tonight will have a sneak peak and then we'll be able to see it in it's entirety on the official movie site- WOO HOO
http://www.twilightthemovie.com/

I am so glad they kept the prom scene in the movie and that now Jacob is going to be in it, that really sets up the next movie- New Moon.

Julie- thank you for thinking of my gallery! the truth is I'm just not brave enough to post anything yet! ;)

tdolan 10-09-2008 06:31 AM

Hey Twilighters!!
 
Go check out my blog and look at the card I made for my Son's girlfiend!!!!

I can't wait to see the trailer today!!
Have a great day!
Teresa

JMB073 10-09-2008 06:57 AM

Hi, tdolan -- your card is awesome! Isn't it great that so many people are getting so much enjoyment out of these books? It amazes just how many Twihards are out there!

tdolan 10-09-2008 07:14 AM

I am a Twihard!!
 
I started reading the books less than a month ago and am reading Breaking Dawn right now! Love em, Love em, Love em!!! I restrained myself from looking at any trailers until I was finished with the first book. Low and behold Edward and Bella are just as I imagined!

Read on Twilighters, it gets even better!!

JMB073 10-09-2008 07:22 AM

I love your Wally -- what a handsome boy! That is really cool that once you finally saw the actors in the movie, that they worked for you. I read all four books after they had been cast, so I had them in mind the whole time. I wonder how it would have been different if I had read the books earlier?
