Bible Journaling of Healed Woman in Luke 8:48... from Home Designs by Amanda

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

Simple Succulent Card... from Home Designs by Amanda

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 :) This one in Sweet Sugarplum is the one that is in the video being put together. Oh So Succulent BundleDies and Stamps   $48.50 I'm really liking the Oh So Succulent bundle. It just seems so versatile,  and

Bible Journaling Baby Moses' Basket... from Home Designs by Amanda

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. Do you enjoy Bible journaling? What was the last passage you worked on? Thanks for coming to Create with Me today! "And when she could no longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with

Lift Me Up Card... from Home Designs by Amanda

Along with a Giveaway! Today's card(s) are made with just the Lift Me Up stamp set and parts from the August 2016 Bold Botanicals Paper Pumpkin kit.  The lighter color of the Hot Air Balloon was to give it a vintage-y look, but I think I like the darker on on the right. This was the sample one I made first. The second one turned out lighter, but a little more masculine without the flower

Flying High Card... from Home Designs by Amanda

Today for Hot Air Balloon Week we are going to make a card that does not have a sentiment on it, making it a nice to have on hand for any occasion when the need for a card arises. This card seemed to come together rather smoothly and I really like the finished product. The video below shows the process. Supplies needed to make this project: 1 card base - white cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches

On Monday, I did the Flourishing Rose Red card with just the stamp set. Well, the next day my shipment arrived from Stampin' Up! with my flourish thinlits dies. So, today, we are going to do another flourish card...adding in the flourish dies. This first example is made using Mint Macaron.

Flourishing Rose Red... from Home Designs by Amanda

The idea for this card started on Friday with using Calypso Coral ink and Smokey Slate ink... I made a sample ahead of taking the process video, and used the second coral colored card base for the first take of the video. However, that video was at a bad angle and I was out of frame most of the time... So, I had to come up with a second color scheme. I chose a piece of stash cardstock

Back to how it started... from Home Designs by Amanda

However, on the blog, my main craft posts usually consisted more about sewing and fabric crafts. Now, I have a new endeavor I'm very excited about that takes me back to the world of homemade cards and paper crafts...which is where the
