Make it in Minutes Wednesday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday (on Wednesday). 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.


For this card, I used the Opulent Ornaments Card (#M3A6388) from the Anna’s Christmas Cards and Embellishment Cricut Cartridge. The finished card after sizing is 5 x 7. I also used the Twinkling Tree Decorative Image (#M3A62BC) and layers from the same cartridge and sized it to fit on my card. I used a sticker on the envelope for some added interest.


I used glitter paper to layer behind the tree and pop dots to add stickers from my Anna Griffin stash. I love how this card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous day!

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 posted this card last year and just had to do a rerun. I made this card using my Cricut Explore. I modified this Make It Now project by adding glitter paper behind the scrolls and the word wicked.


I also used my scissors to cut a small piece of polka dot paper to go behind her shoes and bows.

Lastly, I added foam dimensionals to the back of my card. This was so quick and easy to make. Happy Halloween!

I hope you are having a wonderfully wicked Monday!

Make it in Minutes Monday…..Wednesday Style

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Wednesday. I have been under the weather so I am a little behind on my posts. 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 purchased the round Four Halloween Tags (# 49261) from the Silhouette On-line store and used one to cut my yellow jack o ‘lantern. I hand cut the orange tag and used stamps from my stash. I also used my MISTI for the stamped tag.


I purchased the rectangle Halloween Tags Spiders and Bats( # 97524) from the Silhouette On-line store. I used paper from my stash and was done in a few minutes. I left the twine long so I could attach the tags to Halloween party favors.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous day!

Happy Birthday Card

Our video camera is not working and we are in the process of researching and buying a new camera. In the meantime, please enjoy this cute card that I made for our neighbor’s little girl that loves ice cream! Hopefully, I will have a video to share next week.


I used the Ice Cream Card (#M41659) image from the Cricut Birthday Bash . The card measures 8.36 wide and 6.99 inches tall. I also used the Ice Cream image (#M430FF) from the Birthday Bash cartridge for some of the layers.



I used Wink of Stella on the sprinkles and glitter paper for the cherry.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous day!

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.

Now that fall is almost here, I am starting to think about Christmas. I am making Christmas cards and Halloween cards at the same time! I might even get my shopping done early this year.


I love how this card turned out! I used glitter paper for the beard and hat and the remaining paper is from my stash. The Cricut Explore machine cuts glitter paper like butter!


I used the Santa Claus Card (# MB3771) image from Anna’s Christmas Kitsch cartridge. The card measures 9.24 wide x 5.99 inches tall.


This card took a little longer because of all the layers, but it was so worth it. This is one of my favorite Anna Griffin cartridges.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous 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 hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day! I am taking the day off so please forgive the rerun.


I originally posted this in 2013, but I still love the SVG Spooky Soiree Collection. The skeleton measures 18 inches and only takes one sheet of white and one sheet of black card stock. It looks so professional, and much better than the ones you purchase from a Halloween store!


You can even pose your skeleton.


I can’t wait to make more projects from this kit! Click here to purchase the kit.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Labor Day!
