Sweet Strawberry Jam Birthday Card... from Home Designs by Amanda

Strawberries come into full swing here in the month of June. Whether you grow your own, go pick them yourself,  or just stop and pick some up at the local road side stand,  they are abundant...as well as delishious! So, I made some Sweet Strawberry Jam... in the form of a card! Although, this year my oldest daughter said that she wants us to try to make some jam... I made some

Plan It Out - Unboxing and Starting to Set-up... from Home Designs by Amanda

Welcome to the start of a new week... and for me a new planner. Are you all as giddy as I am? Well, probably not, but you can be... You can order one now and have it in time to start with it in July! I realize that that probably doesn't work as well for most, however, it might help more than you may think at first... Those that homeschool and run through a school year similar to

Wood Words with Overlay... from Home Designs by Amanda

The new catalog is brimming with great products. The Wood Words stamp set and coordinating dies, Wood Crate, are just one of the great bundles. It was one of the available preorders for demonstrators, so I got mine last month, but it seemed like I didn't get much of a chance to work with it until last week... I did a different technique to give the stamping a muted look, rather

Plan It Out - Preview... from Home Designs by Amanda

Are you a plan things out kind of person? Or are you more of "I write appointments on a calendar and that's about it" kind of person? Well, either way, you might like this beautiful planner... I love office supplies... And new planners are great! I like to write out things I plan to do each day, and track things to see what is getting done... So, I'd say I'm a 'planner.' So,

Silver Lining... from Home Designs by Amanda

Do you ever have a project were it is just not turning out the way you wanted it to? Today's card was one of those kind of projects. I worked on it, but what was developing wasn't what I wanted. So, I walked away... Did other things and then came back to try again. I don't even think I returned to it the same day. But the break must have been needed,  because after I started on

Spring Woods... from Home Designs by Amanda

Spring is very nice here and it is quiet warm today. This card is my take on some spring woods... I really like how the wood background paper turned out with the Woodland Textured embossing folder used over it....then adding the ink to darken the trunks more. Some of the paper used was not Stampin' Up!, but I'm excited to see that there is some wood inspired paper coming in the new

Daffodils are the first flowers we have around here when it starts warming up, and I like them! So, I went with them as my inspiration for a card... I just love seeing the daffodils in the woods.

Today, I wanted to bring a project that was super easy and didn't take too many supplies. So I came up with these... They went so fast that I made 4 up before I even got around to making the video. I think it helped using different colors. From front to back: Sweet Sugarplum Old Olive Bermuda Bay Smokey Slate Then in the video I make the Bermuda Bay one,  but I also

Welcome to a new week friends! This weekend I was watching videos to find out ways that other people  keep track of their blogging and video making schedules... to keep from scrambling around on the days needing post to get a video and post ready to go! With that, I did some layout changes to my planner and decided to show that,  and the decorating of it today! I'm still liking the

Minimalist Cards... from Home Designs by Amanda

These super simple cards are based from the Monochromatic cards I posted here on Thursday,  but are basically the same concept... When I was editing the video of the original card (shown below...),  I noticed how cute it looked even before I put the larger plain white piece over the stamped piece  and thought I would see how they looked as cards... So, I started making this one

Monochromatic Flower Burst Card... from Home Designs by Amanda

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

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.

Oh So Succulent BundleDies and Stamps   $48.50 I'm really liking the Oh So Succulent bundle. It just seems so versatile,  and
