Make it in Minutes Monday

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


For this card, I used the Love Flourish Valentine’s Card from the Cricut Make It Now projects. I love how quick and easy it is to make an elegant card. I used pink and red card stock and rhinestones from my stash.


I used a purchased white envelope and cut the sentiment out of red card stock. The Sweetheart sentiment is part of the Anna Griffin Wishful Thinking Dies and Folders Set that I purchased from HSN. I glued the sentiment to the envelope flap.

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


For this project, I used the Small Heart Chocolate Box (#55074) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store.


Instead of using this adorable box for candy treats, I decided to fill it with colorful office supplies. This box would be perfect for a gift of candy of other treats. The valentine’s paper is from a Recollection’s pack that I purchased at Michaels. Click here to purchase a larger version of the box.

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


For this card, I used the Valentine Frog with Hat Holding Candy PNC (#55074) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store.  The frog is 3.435 inches wide and 3.904 inches tall.  The pink layer measures 4 inches by 5.25 inches and was cut using a die from My Creative Time.  I love the stitched dies!


I used dimensional squares to attach the image and was done.  The finished card measures 5.5 inches wide x 4.25 inches tall.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!
