Make It in Minutes Monday

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

I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s alcohol ink post. Her reindeer cards were my favorite and I tried to order the dies, but they were out of stock. I decided to use my Silhouette to make a similar card. Click here to see my first reindeer card.


I cut a reindeer (#51550) image that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store. You could probably find a deer image that you could use with your Cricut.


I purchased the Snowy Woods and House Layered A2 card and only used the hill portion. You could easily free cut your own hills, but I wanted to use this card for another project.

I used a stamp from my stash and was finished! The final card measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

For more information on alcohol inks, be sure to check out Jennifer’s post.

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 and projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them. This card was simple, but did take a little more time.

I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s More Easy Alcohol Ink post and could not wait to get out my alcohol inks and play. Her reindeer cards were my favorite. I tried to order the dies, but they are out of stock. I so loved her card and was determined to design my own dies using my Silhouette.


I used my Silhouette to cut two reindeer (#51550) using an image that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store. You could probably find a deer image that you could use with your Cricut.


I purchased the Snowy Woods and House Layered A2 card and only used the hill portion. You could easily free cut your own hills, but I wanted to use this card for another project.

Make it in Minutes Monday

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


Today’s card was so simple. I used stamps from my stash, adding embossing powder and rhinestones and was done.


This card literally takes minutes, since it only has one stamping layer. I miss stamping and hope to do more this coming year.

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 and projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


I was inspired by this card from Kristina Werner, especially the gold layers.


Since I did not have the stamps, I decided to use my Silhouette to cut a tree that included the sentiment. I cut the Merry Christmas Tree image (#14865) purchased from the Silhouette on-line store, out of Anna Griffin gold glitter paper. The image measures 4.240 x 5.130 inches.


The first layer measures 4.636 inches x 5.623 inches. I then used the Silhouette Studio offset tool to cut the next layer .125 inches larger. Lastly, I matted the gold glitter layer to a crème card.

Next time I am using standard size measurements!

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!

Thanksgiving Bingo

I hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving week with friends and family.


These Thanksgiving bingo cards from Gifts.com are the perfect way to celebrate the season! Instead of calling out the different cards, you and your family look around and mark your card off as things happen. There are funny options, like "Someone's a picky eater" and "Story you've heard 100 times" so that you'll be sure to have a laugh!


I am going to download both the adult and children bingo cards for tomorrow!


These would also make a great gift for your host.

Have a Happy Turkey Day!
