Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


I made this fun card for Father’s Day, but it would also make a perfect birthday card. The size is 5 x 3 ½ inches but you could enlarge it. It would also work for a fun gift card!

I used the Cricut Make it Now Tie Card file for this cute card and used assorted paper from my stash. I embossed the beige paper and added two brads. This was a super quick and easy card to make.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Memorial Day Monday!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


I made this adorable card for a friend who loves to go glamping. She calls it glamping because she likes to camp with a touch of glamour.

I used the Cricut Make it Now Vintage Trailer file for this cute card and used assorted paper from my stash. The trim is cut out of silver mirror paper. I added several rhinestones and was done. This was super quick and easy to make and it comes with an envelope and a sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!

MISTI (Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented) Video Review

I received MISTI a few weeks ago from the inventor Iliana at My Sweet Petunia and I love it! I am a novice stamper and this tool is a must have for stampers of all levels.

With MISTI my stamped images turn out perfectly every time. My only regret is not getting this amazing tool sooner. I could not craft without my Silhouette Cameo, my Cricut Explore and now my MISTI.

I could not wait to make this video to show you how MISTI makes stamping with any stamp easy and fool proof!



For more information, please watch the inventor’s video below:



Also, be sure to watch the following video from Jennifer McGuire on mass-producing cards with the MISTI.



Have a wonderful Wednesday and be sure to check out My Sweet Petunia, they are giving away a mini MISTI every day in May!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


I made this adorable box card for a friend who is going to be a grandmother. Her daughter is having a girl and she is so excited. This card did take more than a few minutes to make, but it turned out so cute!


I used the Baby Girl Box Card (#M63476C ) from the Cricut All Occasion Box Cards Cartridge. I sized the card box to 10.12 inches x 5.83 inches. I added Anna Griffin stickers from one of her card kits and a few rhinestones. I used metallic paper for the diaper pin and part of the bottle. I love my Cricut Explore!


Last week, I made this baby crib box card for another friend.


I used my Silhouette Cameo to make this card. Click here to see the original post and details.

Make it in Minutes Monday Baby Crib Box

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


This project did take a little longer to make, but was so worth it. I made this adorable box card for a friend who is going to be a Grandma for the first time.


I used the Baby Crib Box Card (#131495) that I purchased from the Silhouette On-line Store to make this charming card. I used metallic paper for the rattle and diaper pin and added a heart that I enlarged to the sides. I also added a strip of pattern paper to the front insert and rhinestone to the rattle.



The sentiment is from Anna Griffin.
