Sale-a-Bration Has Come and “Almost” Gone!

It’s hard t believe Sale-a-Bration has come and is almost over! We only have a few short days left. It’s one of the biggest promotions of the Stampin’ Up! year and customers as well as demonstrators look forward to it. For those that are new, it’s the time of year that exclusive products come out that you can earn for FREE. And who doesn’t love FREE!!! Especially when it comes to craft supplies.

Balloon Adventures www.stampwithanita.comAlso, did you know there was a second release of Sale-a-bration products? One of my favorites from the second release is the sparkly Glimmer Papers which I used on this happy birthday card. Sadly the glimmer papers are already gone. It seems it was favorite of everyone! I also used the Lift Me Up DSP that adds the perfect amount of fun and color. But, I have to say… my very favorite has been the Hey Chicks Stamp Set. What a fun set it has been to create with. Every time I look at this set I giggle and can see one of my girls.

Quick and Simple Spring Tablescape

Easter Table 2016 www.stampwithanita.com

We had a blessed Easter with family and friends celebrating our Risen Lord.  It was such a treat to have ALL our kiddos home and even a few extra.  The pic above of our table shows the calm before the storm.  I think this is the first year I actually gave in and used paper and plastic plates. GASP!!!  I know…  I couldn’t believe it either.  But as I was setting up the table Saturday night I didn’t want to spend my time on Easter hand washing all those china dishes.  It’s okay to take a break some years and as our family continues to grow and move out our time with all of them here together is priceless.

DIY Chocolate Butterflies

It’s been a Spring Break week for us here in Ohio. And if you know anything about Ohio you’ll know it’s a bit confused about what “Spring” means.  You know…. sunshine, warmth, singing birds, budding flowers.  If I’m honest I will admit that I’m a bit envious of all the beach and ocean view posts I’m seeing from friends all over facebook and Instagram.


Yep… This was our view in Ohio this week. Someone forgot the memo that it is Spring here.


Yep… That’s me… somewhere behind that cold and snow flurry blown hair… not the gentle ocean breeze I would prefer.

But there is one thing I’ve learned in life… ok maybe a few things.  Sometimes life doesn’t seem fair.  Sometimes life is difficult.  Sometimes life is ugly.  Sometimes you don’t get what you want.  Sometimes you can’t seem to find what you need.


Those are the times you have to seek… to find beauty.  Those are the times you may have to create beauty.  Those are the times you may even have to give what you need to find what you seek.  It is in those times you may not get what you want but instead you find out you will get what you needed all along.

So this Spring Break I had to choose to find the beauty in the season I am personally in at this time.  That season goes way beyond the weather.  There is beauty to be found… even in the cold “winter like” Spring of Ohio.

One place I find beauty in is creating quick and easy projects.  So that is where these fun DIY Chocolate Butterflies come in.  I created these for a Spring Event I had a couple years ago.


Look how fun they are!!! They were the perfect touch for my event to top off the cupcakes.  Let me show you just how quick and easy they were to make…


I just used chocolate chips and melted them down.  Follow the melting instructions on the package you purchase.  Once melted I placed them into an icing bag with a small circle decorating tip.  If you don’t have icing bags as I used here you can simply use a baggie and cut a tiny hole in the corner.  I found an image I wanted to use from my Stampin’ Up! Catalog then laid a piece of wax paper over the image and just traced it.  Once I had all the butterflies I needed I gently placed the wax paper onto a cookie sheet and placed in frig to harden.  Once they were harden I carefully peeled them up and placed them on top of my prepared cupcakes.  Quick and easy!  You could also do this with any of the candy melts that come in multiple colors as well as trace any other image you might need.  How fun is that!!!

So I encourage you to go find beauty in today… seek it out… and if you can’t find it I challenge you to create it.

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is quickly coming to an end…

If you purchase $50 you can choose a Sale-A-ration Product for FREE till the end of March!

OR… if your wish list is long JOIN my team for continued discounts on all your favorite products. I’d love to share with you all the benefits of joining and being a part of my Stampin’ Up! family. Contact ME today if you would like to chat about it!

Place at least a $50 order and not only will you get to choose a FREE SAB product I will also send you this card as a thank you..

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Card Closure

It’s been a busy time filled with kid’s activities and sharing in their awesome accomplishments. I will take time to share more on that with you in another post, but wanted you know that even though I’ve been away from posting my thoughts have been with you all.  I don’t know about you but this long Winter has really taken a toll on me and my energy level.  But today on this first day of Spring I wanted to share a beautiful Spring card that has a special closure that features the new Scalloped Tag Punch.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure 4 www.stampwithanita.comI just love the colors on this card and how it beckons Spring to come.  I know I am so ready for warmer weather…. my aching joints are crying out for it to come soon!  This card was inspired by a make & take Addy Jester designed for us at a team meeting.  I added my own little flare by using the Chalk Talk Framelits Die.  So let me share with you how to make this card…

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Card Closure

• Petal Parade Stamp Set – wood (#133599), clear (#133602) SAB Product
• Perfect Pennants Stamp Set – wood (#133227), clear (#133230)
• Pool Party Classic Ink  (#126982)
• Basic Black Classic Ink  (#126980)
• 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″  Sahara Sand Cardstock  (#121043)
• 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ Pool Party Cardstock  (#122924)
• Crisp Cantalope Cardstock  (#131298)
• Chalk Talk Framelits Dies  (#129983)
• Stampin’ Trimmer  (#126889)
• Scalloped Tag Topper Punch  (#133324)
• Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  (#132971)
• Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper  (#133521)  SAB Product
• Crisp Cantalope Twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack (#133522)  SAB Product

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 1  www.stampwithanita.com    Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 2 www.stampwithanita.com
Start with a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock.  You will be punching on both 5 1/2″ ends.  Insert cardstock into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch all the way and center from top to bottom.  Before you punch look from the back so you can see that the card stock is pushed flush all the way into the edge of the punch.  You will do the same on the opposite side.  See photo and tip below to get both sides matched up.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 3 www.stampwithanita.comTIP: To easily match up both sides so they are aligned insert the opposite side of the cardstock and when looking from the back pull the side of the cardstock that you already punched back over to where you are punching now and you can visually align both sides up to match.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 4 www.stampwithanita.com    Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 6 www.stampwithanita.com
Now with both sides punched you will score the right side of your card.  Use the Stampin’ Trimmer and score down along where the punch cut into the cardstock.  On my Stampin’ Trimmer the cardstock lined up at the 7/8″ mark as shown above.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 5 www.stampwithanita.comOnce you have the first side scored you will then cut away the extra pieces as shown above.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 7 www.stampwithanita.comYou will then do the same thing to the other side that you punched… but on this side you will only need to cut the pieces away and NOT score.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 8 www.stampwithanita.comOnce both sides are complete you will slide the piece of cardstock back into your Trimmer and the side that a has the cut and score you will score again at the 4 1/4″ mark. This will become the back/inside of your card and will make more sense as you go along.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 9 www.stampwithanita.comWhen you are finished this is what you should have. You can discard the cut out pieces.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 10 www.stampwithanita.com    Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure How To 11 www.stampwithanita.comFold your card on score lines and finish as desired.  For my card I attach a 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) on inside right edge as shown. I used the lovely Sweet Sorbet DSP (#133521) that you can earn for FREE right now during Sale-A-Bration.  On the outside flap I embossed a 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Pool Party Cardstock with the NEW Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  (#132971) found in the Occasions Catalog.

Scallop Tap Punch Card Closure 2 www.stampwithanita.com
To finish my card off I tied the Scallop Tag Punched ends together with a piece of Crisp Cantalope Twine found in the SAB Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack shown below.

Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack www.stampwithanita.comLook at all this yummy goodness you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration. The twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack (#133522) was the perfect touch for my card. The Pack comes with three spools (10 yards each) of beautiful twine and a sheet of adhesive-backed die cut images printed on cork.

I Freakin’ Love You!!!

There is something fun and wonderful inside this vellum envelope that I am so excited to share with you, but first… isn’t this the prettiest envelope you’ve ever seen?  I love how it quietly invites you to see what’s inside as it subtly hints of it’s contents.

Have you ever made a special card that didn’t fit into a standard envelope?  Or just wanted your card to be encased in something a little extra special?  The new Envelope Punch Board is a perfect solution!  You can make any size envelope you need from any paper you desire.  The Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum with tiny hearts found in the new “Celebrate The Everyday” Catalog was the perfect choice for my special card.  I’ve also been thrilled with gold coming back into the lime light and used a number of gold products to add bling.  I added a little extra touch of gold with the Gold Baker’s Twine and finished up with two items you can earn for FREE right now through our Sale-A-Bration Promotion ~ the Banner Blast Stamp set and Banner Punch.


Slipped out of the envelope you find a very unique and fun card.  This was the card I made for “my true” this Valentines.  See all the yummy gold!  Including Hearts cut from our Gold Foil Sheets.

As it starts to reveal it’s true shape you begin to see why I feel in love with the design.

Isn’t this just sooooo FUN!!!  The “Card in a Box” have been all the rage on Pinterest.

I just totally LOVE it so I thought it would make the perfect Valentine’s Day Card!!!!

From the top view you can see how the box has a couple of strips placed inside to hold the images that pop up.  This fun polka dot paper called Sweet Sorbet is also one of the great SAB products you can earn for FREE.

I used one of my very favorite word sets “Yippee- Skippee!”  How can you love love a set called that!

Another one of my favorite new products are the “Essentials Wooden Elements“.  They come with lots of fun shapes.  I used both the arrow and the heart on this card.  My “True Love” is the most talented carpenter I know so the use of these little wood pieces was a must do for his card.  We have been true loves for a long time… since jr. high school if you can believe that!  I used to write this little symbol on everything… it not only meant “Todd Loves Anita” but also “True Love Always”… so I wrote it on the little heart I added to his card.  <3 <3 <3

I can’t wait to make more Card in a Box projects!  I’ll try and get a tutorial up you all so you can make your very own.

My True

Me and my True! True Love Always! I’m so very blessed!

Don’t miss out on all the awesome FREE products you can earn during Sale-A-Bration.  You can order directly from my online store and have it shipped directly to you!


OR… Have a Party and earn even more product for FREE! Who doesn’t love a party! Contact ME today to get on my schedule.
