Make it in Minutes Monday….I Whaley Love You!

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 a card from Lisa and I just had to try to make it using my Cricut Maker.


I used my Cricut Maker to design the wave shape using the Water image (#M2FA46) from the Disney Princess Dreams Come True cartridge. I turned the whale image (# M3E015) from the Pack Your Bags cartridge, into a print and cut. I love how the whale turned out! I also used my Cricut Maker to cut the font out of the paper. I backed the font cutout with a piece of black card stock.

I made the background using stream, lettuce, indigo and mermaid alcohol inks on yupo paper. I am seriously addicted to alcohol inks. I added heart shaped and blue sequins and was finished. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

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.


This shaker card was so easy to make. I used the traditional method to make this card, but I do not like the added bulk. I prefer the method, I described in this post.


I cut the Lacey Floral Valentine Heart(#72864) using my Silhouette Cameo, from a piece of 4 x 5.25 inch card stock.  My image measured inches 3.756 x 3.570.  I used the eraser tool to remove the outside cutting line.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!

Flower Burst Card

I recently made several cards using the same cut. If you made the cards that I posted during the last few weeks, you will already have the blue square cut. If not, I have provided step by step directions below. I saved the easiest card for last. This project made tons of cards!


I cut the flower shape (#2064) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store out of the center of a piece of blue 4.5 x 4.5 inch cardstock.


I attached a piece of white card stock to the back of the blue piece. Then, I cut the rectangle stitched blue frame and attached. Next, I attached the blue square to a 5x5 inch top folded white card. For this card, no dimensional squares needed. Super easy!

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.


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!
