March Challenge - Clean and Simple, And Some Important News!

Hello and welcome to our March challenge!

Before I get on to telling you about the challenge I have some important news. As many of you will know, CASS is an offshoot of the Sweet Stampin' challenge. Over the years with teams changing the connection between the challenges has loosened. This month is the last month that Wendy and Chris, the only remaining members who are on both teams, will be a part of CASS. As such the decision has sadly been made that CASS will be closing after the end of this months challenge.


Before you start to wonder where you'll get your Christmas inspiration from I have some good news to temper the bad - those of us remaining on the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' team are going to be starting a new challenge - Christmas Craft Creations! It will have many of the same team members, inspiration and format that you've enjoyed so far, with a brand new look! We hope you'll join us there for our first challenge starting in April.

We are looking for two more DT members to join our challenge team. If you're interested in joining us you can find all the details here.

A word from the Sweet Stampin' Team...

Hey Sweet Stampers,
We want to take this opportunity to thank our
awesome team for all their wonderful contributions over the years.
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' started way back in early December 2012
and it's been a fabulous journey with lots of friends made along the way.
Life however, can have a tendency to get in the way of things we love
and the last of the Sweet Stampin' crew have had to step back,
so it is with sadness, that we have decided to close
Christmas at Sweet Stampin'.

But we are delighted that Charlotte and the rest of the team
are going to create a new Christmas challenge and we hope you
will all lend them your support, by following and joining
their wonderful new challenge as you did this one.

Here's what the talented CASSettes have come up with
to inspire you for our final challenge.

The theme for our final challenge is
Clean and Simple!


Dusty Rae
Coming soon






As a special thank you and fond farewell from our
Sweet Stampin' team, we've got the band back together!
Love and hugs and huge thanks for your support over the years
from all the past and present Sweet Stampin' crew.



I hope you're all inspired by the elegant creations from the team.
We can't wait to see your clean and simple projects and
do be sure to go and join the new challenge!

You have until Tuesday 7th April at 18:00 (UK time) to enter.

Love from the CASSettes xx

A Note from our Founder:

I'm so thrilled to be invited back for the final Christmas At Sweet Stampin' challenge. I haven't much more to add to what Wends & Charlotte have already said except a THANK YOU of my own. The Sweet Stampers (Christmas or otherwise) have always been the most amazing bunch of people & my heartfelt gratitude goes to them all, especially Susan, Wends, Chris & Tracey, who have all been the best support anyone could wish for.

Sadly it is time for CaSS to retire so thank you to all who have played along over the years & inspired us and thank you to Charlotte for helping look after it too. Good luck with the new blog lovely!

See you all soon,

Abi xx

Just read the Challenge is closing... best wishes to all, this was one of my faves - when I could manage to join in AND when I was just skulking around looking for inspiration, so thank you

I was once part of the lovely Christmas at Sweet Stamping Team. It was I who coined the term CASSettes! I was also a member of Sweet Stamping back in the day. I wish all of the past and current CASSettes lots of luck in their new ventures. As hard as I try to be a good girl throughout the year, there are always so many other cards to make and I just never get around to making my Christmas cards until the back end of the year. I have always enjoyed seeing the pretty creations here even though I rarely played along myself since I left the team. Good luck everyone! Hugs
