MCT Made In Minutes ~ You + Me!




Hi everyone happy Monday!  Welcome to My Creative Time Made in Minutes.  Made in Minutes is still new to me and quite the challenge!  But that's what it's all about!  Right?!

So today I created "project life" style cards...


Sometimes as crafters, I think we are always trying to reinvent the wheel.  Well, I don't think we have to.  Or that making something cute and fun doesn't have to take hours!


So I decided to take pre printed cards that were in my 6x6 paper pad and added stamps and dies to them.  That way they were still one of a kind, yet they were quick and easy!


I simply cut out the cards, then carefully used the 3x4 journal die to get the stitching and round the edges.  Then adding a cloud or banner die and stamped sentiments, makes it my own!

I love your Project Life style cards they really are cute. It's true sometime things get created more quickly than others and so Made in Minutes Monday is a fun challenge and one that I sometimes do just because. You just always have the best words of wisdom to share I enjoy visiting with you.
