Monochromatic Flower Burst Card...

Image
I really liked how these cards turned out and they were fun to make too! Obviously... I made 4, and I think I'm going to end up making even more. I tried to make them somewhat minimalistic on supplies...which may have helped make them a little faster to make too.
I think my favorite ended up being the Bermuda Bay one here in the foreground of this picture. While I was editing the video this morning, I had an idea for an even faster card using the one color and one stamp set... I'll try to share that tomorrow!
Here is today's video showing how to make these monochromatic cards.

The dimensions for this card as follows,  starting from the base and working up...
The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4 inches. Larger base is 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Medium base is 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches. Small front base is 2 x 3 1/2 inches. A small piece of white is need for the size of your stamp  that you will be fussy cutting out (or die cutting...)
All of this was using white ca…

Bible Journaling of Healed Woman in Luke 8:48...

Along with a flip through of some other journaling through my Bible.


This blog post is a little later in the day than normal for me, but I was having trouble getting going on what to write and record today...

But I did finally decide on some Bible journaling...and then I had to record it! Typically, I try to have the video recorded BEFORE the day I need to edit and post it, but that did not happen.

So, not only did I have decision making issues this morning, I then had some technical issues this afternoon once I started the recording.

But I finally got it done and edited...ready for you to watch my journaling process...


In the end, I liked the way it all came together and hope that you enjoyed seeing my Bible.

I did use stamps from two different sets: Beautiful You Oh So Succulent
I'd also recommend trying out the Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils... but you might have to wait a little while...they are currently unavailable to order! So obviously, they are very popular, probably…

March 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Ideas...

Image
In case you haven't heard about it before, Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription box from Stampin' Up! It is a very fun box full of great paper crafting fun. I'll explain more in a few moments...

This month's kit was Bunny Buddies...for Easter. However, I don't really need any bunny items, so I changed mine up a little!


I really like the Happy Spring alternatives I came up with, and hope the ladies I'm giving them out to do too!

Here is the video of making these for you to get an idea of what I did:

The Paper Pumpkin kits are just so interesting to get... they are a surprise each month and have everything you need inside of them to make adorable crafts. Also, if you happen to not necessarily care for what comes in your kit at first...you can always switch it up!

The March 2017 kit came with the products needed to make the Bunny Buddies, which you can watch how the did them in this Paper Pumpkin video. However, I added a few items that didn't come in the k…

Simple Succulent Card...

Image
At least it seemed simple to me...but it does take a little time to die cut the succulents out.

I like making cards the same but with different colors...more variety :)

Planner Stamping...

Image
I decide that for today I would switch up from doing a card to showing you how I use stamps in my weekly planner.


This is the finished decorating before I started really filling it in for the week.

Quick chat...

Image
Good afternoon, I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's bonus blog post for The Remarkable Ink Blog Hop! Today's post is just going to be a quick chat about what's going on...

Mainly, I'm trying to get prepared for my FIRST Stampin' Up party...which happens to be a virtual party on my Facebook page.

Click on the picture to take you right to my FB page!
So, if you are free...or perhaps snowed in...tomorrow evening, why not come on over and join me for some fun!

Since I'm busy getting prepared for tomorrow, with a bunch of video editing and uploading to do, the card video I had planned on sharing with you today will have to wait for later. Hope your not too disappointed...

If you would like a sneak peek at one of the videos I put together for the party, you can view it here:

Tasty Trucks Ice Cream Card...

Welcome to the Blog Hop for March 2017. This month our theme is “SaleABration”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Home Designs by Amanda or may have come from another blog on the list...either way, take some time to look here and then head over to some of the other blogs and see the great cards designed using Sale-A-Bration items. My card highlights a Sale-A-Bration stamp set along with an Annual catalog stamp set.

Today's card uses FIVE Sale-A-Bration items...and looks so pretty and delicate.



Glimmer Succulents...

Image
Last week I received my most recent Stampin' Up order. I was eagerly waiting it's arrival because not only did it have a ton of great stuff in it, but I also needed it to make some small gifts for my husbands co-workers...which he happened to need to take to work with him the next morning after it arrived in the early evening while we were out! It ended up being a late night up for me, but the project turned out nicely...

However, today's card is showcasing some of the items I ordered...but it is not the project I made for the co-workers...that will come a little later!
This card uses some of the beautiful Sale-A-Bration Glimmer paper and items from the Succulent Garden Suite from the Occasions catalog.

Today, instead of a card, I'm sharing how I use stamps to do some Bible journaling.
The video below shows how I used my stamps to make this picture in my Bible.
