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 project took a little more time, but was so worth it.


I decided to make several pairs of earrings for Christmas. I started out using card stock and Mod Podge and then I decided to try using Cricut Faux Leather.


I used Cricut Woodgrain Faux Leather to make these adorable earrings. I mirror cut the earrings so they would be reversible and more durable. I glued them together and attached the findings. I love how easy it was to cut faux leather and I can’t wait to try other colors.

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 project took a little more time, but was so worth it.


I decided to make several pairs of earrings for Christmas. I fell in love with the earrings I made using my Cricut machine, so this time I used my Silhouette.


For this set of earrings I used the Layered Earrings by Sweet Elsie (#275676) that I purchased from the Silhouette On-line Store. I glued together two layers of card stock and coated them with two layers of Mod Podge Gloss for paper. I used a paint brush to gently brush on the Mod Podge. Super simple!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday.

Manito Park

Hello everyone, we had a long weekend so we headed to Spokane, Washington for some shopping and some R and R.  While we were there, Bill made a trip Manito Park to check out the fall colors and try out his new monopod that he bought the day before. The colors were awesome again this year and delightful to see. Here are a few of his best photos from the park.


A charming bridge invites you to explore the far shore.



Its amazing how you can move a short distance and get a completely different view.


This view is the other side of the bridge back in the trees.


The mallards seemed so peaceful.


Beautiful Koi swim back and forth in the pond.


A small shrine and waterfall invite one to pause and reflect.


You might think the best photo colors technique would be to stand out in the sun and shoot in, but sometimes, going back in the trees and shooting out is even better.


A great place to rest after exploring the park. Thanks for taking the time to view Bill's photos.

Sticky Note Easel Card Apple

This project was super easy to make! It only took minutes.


I think this would be a perfect thank you gift for a teacher. For this project I used the Sticky Note Easel Card Apple (#274691) that I purchased from the Silhouette On-line Store. I added a bow and a sentiment that I stamped using an Anna Griffin set. Really easy!


This entire project only took 20 minutes!

Fab Lab Day at High School

Recently, I was asked by the high school librarians my husband works with, to come in and show some of my Cricut projects. I'm always excited to talk Cricut anything, so I happily agreed. The Makerspace, which they christened "Fab Lab", is a place for students to come in to the library and creative activities and "make" something of their own design. It's a win-win for the library. The library sees more student traffic and the students have an opportunity to try different mediums and design something and build it.



The Cricut station.


A display of some of my work for the students to see.


Another view of my display pieces.


Materials for the students to use. In the middle, you can see a balsa wood airplane that was cut on the Cricut Maker.


A 3D printer that any student can use.


Examples of 3D printed puzzle pieces and other printed items.

It was a great experience and the Fab Lab is going to be a wonderful place for students to be makers and create amazing projects.

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 project took a little more time, but was so worth it.


I love earrings and could not wait to try making them out of paper.

For these adorable earrings, I used the Faux Leather Earrings Make it Now project. Instead of leather I glued together two layers of card stock. I coated them with two layers of Mod Podge Gloss for paper. I used a paint brush to gently brush on the Mod Podge. Super simple!!


I can’t wait to wear these!

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday.
