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!

Valentine's Day Results

Hi Bloggies!
Well, our Valentine's Day contest ended yesterday! And look at me! Posting the day after :) I'm on the ball (for now, anyways!)

We had 2 card entries for this contest! Thank you to Maria and Therese for entertaining me! I loved how you both incorporated my curve ball (aka Teal) into your creations! Too, too cute! You can click on these ladies' names to check out their blogs!

Winner by random draw isssssssssssssss.............MARIA!! Yay!! Send Carol an e-mail at sales(at)classact.ca with your mailing address and your choice of Class Act unmounted stamp :)

I'm thinking I may need to turn to my critters to help me pick winners, since a basket with pieces of paper in it just isn't cutting it anymore. Anyone remember when I had Kiki (my chinchilla) pick the winner? THAT was fun! I might have to do that again :) For anyone who is new and doesn't remember it... here is the link to the post! She was such a good little judge, pondering every little step (RIP Sweety!!) but I still have 2 other chins who will have big shoes to fill if I decide it's their turn for fame!

Been craftin'!


So I got my craft on today!
My friend just got engaged (YAY!!!)...and by "just" I really mean in December...so I thought I should probabbbbbbbbbbbbly make them a card...like...yesterday.

This was super cool! I found stickers from Bo Bunny that match a set of Spell Binders that I have! - WOOT! Then I used Design Adhesives and glitter for the hearts, and Bazzil Two Scoops for the embossed look. THEN on the inside I thought it looked a little plain, so I used Sew Easy from We R Memory Keepers and Organza Ribbon.

Here are some scrapbook pages I've done up! I got the Spell Binder Grand Caliber which cuts larger dies - which is AMAZING because I always whine and complain that the regular Spell Binders don't cut big enough for a decent picture. These ones cut so big!! And the new paper line we have in is blowing my socks off!! The Easter one is part of the We R Memory Keepers Easter package, and the drink one is new from Paper House! Matching stickers and all!

Valentine's Day Challenge

Happy New Year, Bloggies!!

I hope everyone's holidays wasn't as chaotic as mine! WOW! It's almost nice to be back at work! (Okay...not really...) I've had a sick chinchilla on my hands for almost a month...and have had to handfeed her with a syringe every 2-3 HOURS!! Gah! Let it end!

BUT! Onto more fun things! We're going to get this Valentine's Day Challenge rockin' and rollin'!

Here's the deal:
Your card must have Pink, Red, and White on it............but as a twist (and to make things more interesting!) I want to see some teal on it, too! (Just because my best friend is getting married and that's going to be the colour of my dress! I'm so not biased). That's all the stipulations! Get creative!  

Contest closes Sunday, January 22nd.
Please e-mail entries to me at raychel(at)classact.ca

Consider this a kick start to making your significant other the perfect card :)
