Make it in Minutes…. Quick and Easy Coffee Mug

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 love cutting iron-on vinyl with my Cricut Maker so I decided to try cutting permanent vinyl. And I am loving the mugs!


I used the Coffee Makes Everything Possible image (#MB35643E) from Cricut Design Space and silver permanent vinyl. I love all things coffee!

For this project, I used a ceramic mug that I bought at my local Dollar Tree. Hopefully your local store will still have them in stock or at least something very similar.

Have a wonderful day!

Make it in Minutes…. Travel Mug With Lid

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 love cutting iron-on vinyl with my Cricut Maker, so I decided to try cutting permanent vinyl.


I used the I Love You a Latte image (#M9F6C960) from Cricut Design Space and Cricut black permanent vinyl.

For this project, I used a plastic travel mug that I bought at my local dollar tree. It says it is sold out on-line, but I just purchased this mug last week. Hopefully, your local stores may still have them in stock.

Have a wonderful day!

Make it in Minutes…. Mini Canvas Bag

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 canvas bag was super quick and easy. I love working with vinyl.


I used the Proud Parents of a Rescued Cat image (#MAC4AA0C) from Cricut Design Space and Cricut black iron-on vinyl.


I made this mini tote for my friend Bobbie who runs the Wild About Cats Sanctuary. Wild About Cats is a nonprofit, no-kill animal sanctuary dedicated to providing care for cats regardless of age, medical issues or disposition until a permanent loving adoptive home can be found. The organization has no paid staff, and relies solely on active volunteers, with donations and fundraisers as their main monetary support. If you are interested in more information or to donate to this amazing organization, click here.

Have a wonderful day!

It All Started with Cricut Infusible Inks…

I could not wait to buy the new Infusible Ink from Cricut and make my first shirt. I purchased the ink and the correct t-shirt and was excited to begin.

I quickly realized that there is a slight learning curve to this amazing product and I had never done any sort of iron-on. And so, my journey began. I discovered that I needed a Cricut Easy Press 2 and decided to purchase the large model. Next to my Cricut Maker, it is my best purchase ever! Really!


For my first iron-on project, I made this cute Cricut tote bag. All the supplies came with my Easy Press 2 and it was extremely easy to do! And just like that, I was hooked.


I have made mini tote bags with iron on vinyl, t-shirts with iron on patterned vinyl and I just finished my first infusible ink t-shirt. Spoiler alert, it turned out great. I will photograph my projects and share with you in the upcoming weeks. Needless to say, I am seriously into all types of vinyl.

Have a wonderful day!

Make it in Minutes (Days)

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 is a new card design from Lori Whitlock and in reality it should only take minutes, but it took me days.


While making this card, my Silhouette Cameo finally died. And to make it even more challenging, I was using a very old version of their software. Then my laptop decided not to work, so I ended up using my husband’s computer. What a week!


Now for the great news…. I love my Cameo 3 and the new software is far superior to the version I was using. And this week, we will start shopping for a new laptop!

I purchased this Extreme Pop Up Card Birthday image ( #297292) from the Silhouette on-line store and I love it. Lori has several versions available, and I want them all. You can also purchase this file from her store and cut it with your Cricut. The inside pop-up is made from print and cut images which make this a quick card to put together. I used paper from my stash and die-cut a sentiment for the front design.

Thanks for listening to my challenges. Anyone have days like this?

Have a carefree day!
