Getting Cricky Design Team Post - Beautiful Thoughts!!

Happy Saturday, everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! We are still melting in the heat here. It was 104 yesterday and supposed to hit 105 today :(


It's my turn to design for Getting Cricky and today, we are featuring the Beautiful Thoughts stamp set, one of Kristal's newest sets and one of my favorites :)


The papers are from My Mind's Eye Union Square stack. The black border strip is a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Doily Accent die. the lace ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the flower in the center of the bow is a Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms die. All of the edges are inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


The design under the book is a Spellbinders Standard Circle Small, followed by a Parisian Motif die and then a Fancy Tags 3 die.


The book was made with a Spellbinders Label 7 die, then stamped with a Heartfelt Creations book frame stamp on kraft stock. Two pieces of white cardstock were cut with Label 7 and then stamped with the book frame stamp, the edges trimmed to give the book dimension. The words are a stamp from my stash in Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, with Old Paper Distress Ink sponged over the paper and the edges inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The tag is a Spellbinders Pennant die, inked with Vintage Photo. "You are the author of your own life" is from K Andrew Designs Beautiful Thoughts stamp set:

  19. Oh my Lisa!! This is absolutely beautiful! You are just amazing my friend. Now if only you would start doing how to videos??? I can't seem to wrap my mind around the book. I guess I am way to much a visual learner. It's just so incredible.

    Keep cool, we are having a heat wave here now. Thank the Lord for air conditioning.

    Thank you for all of your visits, you know I adore you right?

  20. My sweetest friend, this is absolutely gorgeous! So vintage, so elegant, so perfect... Le sigh. The book is absolutely genius and executed so beautifully. Beyond clever, my talented friend. I love the layers beneath it, the gorgeous fleur de lis border (I really, really need that), and that sweet ribbon. The tiny flower is such a lovely accent. What else to say? You are amazing as ever. :o) Stay cool and have a blessed Sunday, Lisa! (I would totally bring you a cheesecake cone if I could!)

    Hugs and blessings!
