Each time I offer an in-person class or event, I love to gift the participants with a treat package. For March, I decided to use Stampin’ Up!’s 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ Acetate Boxes to create an Easter treat. Find these boxes in Stampin’ Up!’s 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Each package contains 10 clear boxes. Note: These boxes are being discontinued and are available while supplies last. Get them now for $4.80. Shop my online store to see all of the other items included on the Last-Chance Sales.
I have a special offer for you: Purchase $35 of any product (before tax and shipping) from my online store and use the Host Code: TX23EFVK. I’ll send you a free kit to create this treat project at home. You’ll need a little adhesive, a Black Marker and a Chalk Marker and some shredded paper. Colors of ribbon, card stock, and shimmer paper may vary. Offer ends April 10, 2022.
The other products I used to create this cute packaging includes:
- Heart Punch Pack
- Double Oval Punch
- Layering Circles Dies
- Gingham Embossing Folder
- Supple Shimmer 12 x 12 Specialty Paper
- Miscellaneous Stampin’ Up! retired punches.
Create the rabbit, assemble the box, fill with chocolate and shredded paper and you have great Easter basket contents. I also love to give treats to the ladies at the gym and in my book club and bunco group during special holidays.
You can also use the punch art rabbit as a focal point on a greeting card.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely and Heartfelt
This Forever Lovely Valentine card combines elements from two of Stampin’ Up!’s stamp sets–Forever Lovely and Heartfelt–that are perfect for celebrating this special day, which is just two weeks away.
This card comes together pretty quickly. It starts with a Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock base, followed with a Cherry Cobbler layer, and another Very Vanilla layer on which I stamped the hearts from the Forever Lovely set. On a separate Very Vanilla scrap, I stamped the heart from the Heartfelt set and then punched it out with the Heart Punch. I used the Heart Scallop Punch with Cherry Cobbler card stock. I layered the two hearts and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the hearts onto the card.
Forever Lovely can be found on page 81 of the Annual Catalog and Heartfelt and its coordinating punches can be found on page 10 in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.
At the very end of this post, look for a list of ingredients to create this Forever Lovely Valentine. Click on any of the graphics to be taken directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.
Remember: Sale-A-Bration is underway. Through March 31, receive your choice of a free product when you make purchases of $50 and $100.

There’s still time to get your favorites.

Stampin’ Up!’s From My Heart Suite of products offers a lot of fun elements to make your Valentine creations — including the Heartfelt stamp set, From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper, Heart Punch Pack, and the Heart Doilies. I also used a touch of Silver Foil to add interest.
I started with a base of Flirty Flamingo card stock, added a layer of Real Red card stock, a piece of From My Heart DSP, a red Doily, a Silver Foil strip (punched with the Banner Triple Punch), a heart punched out of Flirty Flamingo with the Heart Scallop Punch, and finally, the Real Red heart.

Who needs Valentine card ideas? It’s about a month away! Stampin’ Up!’s Heartfelt Bundle offers a perfect combination of a stamp set and two punches to get the job done. Add a package of the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper and you’re good to go. I love that the DSP has a couple of sheets of heart images that can be punched directly from the paper. This card features one of the hearts, and I layered it on a scallop heart punched through Silver Foil.
