Hi all!!

Is everyone dug out yet? That was INSANE! I spent my whole weekend digging various members of my family out...should I mention that I had to drive in that on Friday? Picture me and a 4 cylinder G5, with all season (aka 3 season) tires. I got called to supply (of COURSE...) so it took me 45 minutes to dig myself out of the school parking lot, and I'm not even sure how I got home...I think I just coasted on top of the snow for a few kilometers as I was lucky and didn't really have to "stop" on the way. Once I got onto my street (which the snow plows hadn't even thought of plowing) I just had to give 'er. As I zigzagged down the street trying to avoid curbs, I rammed the car into my driveway (the snow was up past my license plate, so I didn't get far!!). I just wanted it off the street so if another idiot like me was out driving, that my car wouldn't be a target.

 Anyways! Here I was today at the store, and I thought of making something much less snowy (although, don't get me wrong...I LOVE snow and the winter). The ladybug is popped up, and there are brads and stickles to embellish this baby! The stamp is from Art Gone Wild, which we are currently stocking in store for a short time!
Anyways, onto a contest!
Easter is early this year! March 31st. So, it looks like we need a contest!
Enter your Easter card (using a Class Act, Chapel Road OR Pink Cat Studio stamp) by Friday, March 22nd for a chance to win a free unmounted Class Act stamp of your choice!
E-Mail a photo of your card to classactstamps(at)rogers.com to enter!

Up and Running Again!

Hi all!

I feel like I write these types of posts all too often! BUT this should be the final one!

We're going to be updating the blog on a weekly basis - usually on Wednesdays.

However, we will have a new contributor who will be making these posts! Sheree (our lovely new store employee!) and Carol (the woman herself) will be doing the posts, alongside me (when I get the time!...for anyone who doesn't know, I am now a supply teacher with a local school board after 2.5 YEARS!!! WOOT! Go me!)

So, stay tuned for more challenges and contests!

New Announcement!

Hi all!

We have a new, exciting announcement for you!

As always, things are nothing short of organized chaos (or not so organized, depending on the day). The last little while we have been contemplating "adopting" a new line to add to our growing Class Act family. We think we found the perfect match!
Class Act would like to welcome Pink Cat Studio to the family!

These adorable images are a hoot to work with, along with their little accompanying phrases that always seem to add just the right touch to any project.

We have Pink Cat Studio's stamps up on our website now (in case you haven't been creeping the last two weeks and wondered what we were getting up to!) and can see them here!

We are releasing some new stamps, so you get a sneak peek, as always!!

This is the Pink Cat Studio Christmas Release 2012:

We hope you enjoy our new addition as much as we do!
You can see these lovelies in person at Scrapfest next weekend!

Easter Contest Results

Hi everyone!!
Is everyone ready for a long weekend? I know I am!! I'm ready to get a little mud on the tires while ATVing (Brad Paisley reference...anyone??) I'm pretty stoked! What's everyone else getting up to this weekend? Feel free to post comments...it makes me feel special :)

For our Easter contest our only contestant was Sherree! Where were the rest of you?! I KNOW there was a bunch of you working on cards! You dropped the ball big time ;) hehe! Next time!

Here are Sheree's beautiful cards! Just in time for Easter! I know you come to the store, so next time you're in just let whoever is working know that you won the contest (I'll leave a note if it's not me here) and you can pick an unmounted Class Act stamp :) )

Thanks for playing along and reading!
I hope everyone has a safe long weekend, and we'll be back with another challenge once the April craziness calms down (though, in the Class Act word, there is always chaos :)) I don't think we could cope with it being any other way!

Peace out, friendlies!

Butterfly Happy Birthday

Newest card!

I used double sided adhesive to make the black border, then sprinkled black glitter on it. The vertical Happy Birthday is from Class Act. I used Elizabeth Craft's Peel Off Stickers for the butterfly and lady bug, ten coloured them with Tombow Markers on Bazzil Prismatic paper :)

New Cards!

Hey guys!
So I've just been sitting here in the store, and I had the urge to make some cards! I'm not a huge stamper, but I LOVE stickers...so that's what I use to make most of my cards :)

Here is one that I made for Easter! Super easy, but I think it's cute! I used yellow organza ribbon, a pearl green cardstock, purple cardstock, Cuttlebug embossing folder (don't know the same, I take all mine out of the package as soon as I get them...brilliant, huh?) and Bisous stickers!

I have a thing for making girly cards, so I thought I would make one for a boy! This one is made using orange and blue cardstock, Spellbinders, and Karen Foster stickers! I put popdots behind the blue backing and orange square with the tractor on it, so it pops up, too :)

This card started off as a boyish one - it didn't end up that way! I used We R Memory Keepers paper from the Cotton Tail collection, blue and purple cardstock, Karen Foster stickers, 2 Cuttlebug folders (the bottom one was just a border embosser) and fushia and blue brads!
