MAKE IT IN MINUTES - a new video series from Connie Stewart, featuring great cards and gifts made in minutes! Check it out at

Today’s MAKE IT IN MINUTES video is pretty cool, I must say.  It’s not just one card but a complete collection of cards.  One template, dozens of ideas.  Just use different embossing folders and sentiments to create different cards.

A set for the girls in your life….

A set for the guys….

A set for your sweetheart….

Let me share today’s MAKE IT IN MINUTES video with you…

Here are some of my favorite embossing folders for this collection of cards.  To add any of them to your collection, just click a pic!


What do you think?  Letting the embossing be the star of the show is just a fun and fast way to create a card.  While you’re at it, why not make up lots of different cards and you’ll be ready for anything!

Pull out some of your favorite sentiment stamps and get creating!


Today is the day!  I am jumping on an airplane for Arizona in just a few hours and spend a week with a couple of my Stampin’ Up demonstrator friends.  It’s going to be way more fun than 3 crazy women should have together and I am SO excited to share the next 7 days with Jackie and Sharon.  You might recognize their names.  They share Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge cards with me sometimes.  I love these girls so much.

I have some fun stuff lined up for you while I’m gone so don’t leave.  I was a busy little stamper preparing for this week away.

While I’m gone I really need to unplug, if you know what I mean.  I am leaving the laptop behind.  That is a little scary but the 3 of us decided we need to step away from our screens this week.  (Note: if you place an order while I am away, I will email you the exclusive tutorial when I return.  I appreciate your patience.)

See  you all tomorrow!
