World Card Making Day Blog Hop With Stampin' Up!


Welcome to our World Card Making Day Blog Hop using current Stampin' Up!® Products. This is such a fantastic way to celebrate this event with lots of amazing inspiration for you. You are currently visiting my blog - Amanda Rogers in the USA and you will be visiting lots of different places in your hop today. There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog so you see 20 amazing projects all up.
 

I love how simple this card was to make, yet it looks so dainty with the pearls and the beautiful ribbon.  All I did to make this card was stamp my image from the Hostess Set, Love You Lots (which I really recommend to pick up with your next big order or workshop) with Basic Gray, and layer that on a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  Flirty Flamingo has been my most favorite color to use, and I think it looks great with the Basic Gray!

Next I just wrapped the Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon around my card, and used a separate piece to tie a bow and hot glued it where the seam of my wrapped piece of ribbon is.  I stamped the sentiment in the corner with Flirty Flamingo Ink.

Lastly, I took my pearls and made a lot of clusters and placed a lot in singles as well.  I used the smallest size and the biggest size for this, and I think the mix of the two different sizes makes it look so nice.  It is a lot of pearls to use, but I love how it looks so much, that I made 9 more of this same card to stock in my card rack for my craft shows!

I hope you love this card as much as I do, and I'd love to hear what you think about it!

Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog - Amanda Rogers, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.

Tic Tac Matchbook Tutorial With Stampin' Up!

Hey everyone, happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend!  I realize I have been MIA for a little while, and I'm so sorry!  We brought a bunch of stuff over from our storage unit so I can start getting everything ready for my craft shows, and there was just so much clutter everywhere, that it was stressing me out and I needed to get rid of a bunch of stuff!  I spent the past week or so going through stuff in our kitchen and dining room, clothes in my closet, and the over abundance of lotions, body products, candles, etc that I just have collecting dust and selling some of that stuff to make room to be less cluttered!  I'm not done yet, but I'm at a better place where I feel I can start getting craft show stuff ready without being so stressed out about how messy our house is!

Anyhow, I am here with one of my last craft show tutorials, after this I will probably only have 2 more for this season!  This tutorial is on Tic Tac Matchbooks!  These are super cute an simple to make, but I'm not sold on the idea of making them for my craft shows yet.  I'm just not sure if they will be worth the time, so I will probably only make them if I have a few extra days to bust some out.

Down below I will have a photo of these, a list of dimensions, and a link to all the products used.

Coaster Calendar Tutorial With Stampin' Up!

Hey everyone, happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend!  I am here with yet another craft show tutorial!  After this tutorial, I will only have 3 things left to make, and I'll be sure to do tutorials on those for you once I get to them as well!  Today's tutorial is on Coaster Calendars.  I originally got this idea from Angie at chicnscratch, and she has a calendar file you can purchase to print and cut your own, but I was making 100 of these, so I found some mini calendars on Amazon.  I also purchased chipboard coasters on Amazon to make this project.

Down below I will have photos of all the styles I made, a list of dimensions, and a link to all the products used.

Bubblicious Gum Holder Tutorial With Stampin' Up!

Hey everyone, I am back with another craft show tutorial!  This is my Bubblicious Gum Holder Tutorial!  I was inspired by chicnscratch, last Halloween she made something similar to this to hold mini Hershey and Kit Kat Bars.  I saw this gum at Dollar Tree in packs of 3, and knew I wanted to make something fun with them for craft shows!  I took her tutorial and tweaked the measurements so they would fit the gum!

Mini Tic Tac Slider Tutorial With Stampin' Up!

Hey everyone, it's the weekend!  I hope everyone had a good week!  I'm here to share with you another craft show tutorial!  This one is for Mini Tic Tac Sliders!  This the the first time I've made these.  I found these Mini Tic Tacs at Dollar Tree in packs of 3, and I thought they were so cute when I found them, that I knew I had to make something with them!

The process to make these is super simple, it is basically just a "box" of cardstock that goes around it that allows the Mini Tic Tac to slide in and out, and you can decorate the outside with your fun punches!

Down below I will have photos of all the varieties I made, the dimensions used, and a link to all the products used in this video.

Binder Clip Photo Holder Tutorial With Stampin' Up!

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your long weekend if you got one!  I've been crafting pretty much all weekend and I am so far ahead of schedule for making craft show goods!  I have 20 different items on my list to make, and I am 40% complete!  This makes me so happy!  I don't think I had even started making things at this time last year, so this is great!

Today I have a quick video showing you how to make these super cute, easy, and functional Binder Clip Photo Holders.  I made 72 of these in just a few hours!  I might get more clips and make more if I have time after I'm done with everything!

I made 5 different styles, and I will have photos of each down below.  I will also have a link to all the products I used today.

These are very easy to make.  I have the size large binder clips that I purchased online last year.  The paper I used for these measured just a tiny bit under 2 inches by 3 1/4 inches.  I just used Fast Fuse Adhesive and wrapped it around the clip and decorated, so simple!









I hope you enjoyed today's project!  I'd love to know which clips are your favorite!  I am torn between the pink ones and the Christmas ones with the lace and the pearl spray!  I will be back later in the week with another craft show tutorial!  Happy crafting!

Junior Legal Pad Holder Tutorial With Stampin' Up!

Happy Saturday everyone!  I am so glad to be here to share another tutorial with you!  I have gotten so much faster at mass producing in the past year, that I can't believe how much I've gotten done in the past week and a half!  I am ahead of schedule and it feels great!  This allows me to be able to take a few break to film updated tutorials for you guys!  Today I am here with a tutorial on the Junior Legal Pad Holders!  These are a little more time consuming, but I can make a batch of 24 in about 2 hours.  There is a lot of cutting and adhering, so these take a little longer!

I will have a photo of this Junior Legal Pad down below, along with a list of dimensions used on this project, and a link to all the products used!




I love this one and how cute it turned out!  These characters in the Cookie Cutter stamp sets are just to die for!  Here is a list of dimensions used:

Whisper White
