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 shaker card was so easy to make. Instead of using dimension tape to make the shaker, I used a really strong double sided tape. It totally eliminates the bulk.


I cut the Heart Image (#M3EE62) using my Cricut Maker, from a piece of 4 x 5.25 inch card stock. My image measured 3.384 x 3.111 inches. I used hide contours to remove the outer cutting line. I used strong double-sided tape to go around the outside of the heart image and added sequins. Next, I backed the rectangle with a piece of glitter paper. Then I adhered the rectangle to a pink 4.25 x 5.5 inch top folded note card.


I triple cut a sentiment and attached to the front of my card. Super easy way to make a shaker card without the added bulk.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!

Flower Burst Layered Card

Last week, I made several cards using the same cut. If you made the inlaid card that I posted several days ago, you will already have the pink square cut. If not, I have provided step by step directions below.


I cut the flower shape (#2064) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store out of the center of a piece of pink 4.5 x 4.5 inch cardstock. I did an internal offset using my Silhouette Software and then cut the design out of the center of a blue piece of 4.5 x 4.5 inch cardstock. I did another internal offset and cut the image from the center of a piece of 4.5 x 4.5 inch orange cardstock.


I attached all 4.5 inch squares and then backed them with a piece of green cardstock. I cut the rectangle stitched pink frame using one of my dies and attached to the square. I used dimensional tape to attach the completed piece to a 5 x 5 inch white top folded card. I cut the word thanks three times using one of my dies, and glued them together before attaching the sentiment to my card. You could also use your Silhouette or Cricut to cut a sentiment.

This card was the most complicated of the set. Stay tuned, I have one additional card to share with you. I saved the easiest to the last.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful 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 and projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.

Warning- this card took me about 1 hour to make, but was so worth it!

I got the idea for this card from the Sparkle and Shine Class by Jennifer McGuire. Her class was wonderful!


I used the Hello circle image (#28237) purchased from the Silhouette On-line store, since I did not have the die cut used in the class.


Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!

Flower Burst Glitter Card

Last week, I made several cards using the same cut. If you made the inlaid card that I posted several days ago, you will already have the orange square cut. If not, I have provided step by step directions below.


I cut the flower shape (#2064) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store out of the middle of a piece of orange 4.5 x 4.5 inch cardstock. You could use a Cricut flower image or die.


I attached a piece of Scor-Pal Double sided adhesive to the back of the orange square and then added glitter. I removed the remaining backing sheet and attached the orange panel to a white square.

I cut the rectangle stitched orange frame using one of my dies and attached to the orange square. I used dimensional tape to attach the orange piece to a 5 x 5 inch white top folded card. Lastly, I cut the word "Congrats" three times using one of my dies, and glued them together before attaching the sentiment to my card. You could also use your Silhouette or Cricut to cut the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday.

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 cards designed by Jennifer McGuire.


I cut the flower shape (#2064) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store out of the middle of a piece of white 4.5 x 4.5 inch cardstock. You could use a Cricut flower image or die. Next, I repeated the process using blue, green, orange, and pink cardstock. I saved all the cuts and made several cards, which you will see posted in the coming weeks.

I covered the back of the white 4.5 inch square piece with a piece of blue card stock, and then inlaid the green, pink and orange petals. It took a few extra minutes, but it was worth the time.


I cut the rectangle stitched white frame using one of my dies and attached to the white square. I used dimensional tape to attach to a 5 x 5 inch pink top folded card. Lastly, I cut the word thanks three times, using one of my dies and glued them together before attaching to my card. I love how this card turned out. You could also use your Silhouette or Cricut to cut the sentiment, if you didn’t have a word die.


I used the green 4.5 inch square that I cut earlier and attached a piece of white card stock to the back. I cut the rectangle stitched green frame and attached. Next, I attached the green square to a 5x5 inch top folded white card using dimensional tape.


I cut the word congrats three times using one of my dies, and then glued them together before attaching to my card. Stay tuned, I used several different techniques for the remaining three cards!

Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy New Year!

Carly used distress oxide inks to make this card that incorporates the Pantone Playful Palette. I love the bright and cheery colors!

This would make an adorable Valentine’s Day card.

Make it in Minutes

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Thursday.  I am a little behind this week! I hope you had a wonderful holiday.

Altenew stamps help you make your flowers look so realistic. For this card, I used the Altenew Vintage Flower stamps and die set.


I used a pink rose and some leaves from one of my Anna Griffin kits. It is so easy to combine stickers with the stamped flowers.

The "Hi" and stitched rectangle were cut from my dies.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Thursday!
