Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

Here we are at the end of another year!  We've had a wonderful time hosting fabulous artists like Claudine Hellmuth, Jennifer McGuire, Michael deMeng and others.  And we've loved seeing the projects you've created.  Sharing ideas is one of my favorite things about the Happy Stamper.  Thank you for your support throughout 2010.  We're looking forward to more fun and creativity in 2011!  Read on to find out more things we have planned.  And, have a Happy and Restful Holiday!

Claudine Hellmuth Returns! 

Claudine is Creative Layers Workshopreturning Saturday, January 22 with a series of all new workshops!  In her Creative Layers multimedia workshop, you will be introduced to Claudine's popular new line of foam and clear stamps -- when layered together they create a whole new look. The stamps are perfect for fabric, home décor scrapbooking and just about anything you can think of! Claudine will share her favorite techniques to create your own unique painterly look. Have a great time learning how you how you can layer these stamps in unlimited ways as we build an accordion fold book! This class is from 10-1.

Paper Wreath Workshop
Next, from 2 - 5 pm, learn new mixed media methods while creating this lovely spring inspired Paper Wreath. In this 3 hour class, you will learn how to create your own unique papers using old scrapbook papers that you no longer like! Use paint and mixed media techniques to make your papers one-of-a-kind! We'll finish the wreath by adding an interchangeable photo frame hanging in the center.
Make sure you reserve your spaces soon.  Her workshops always sell out because she is a phenomenal instructor - not only will you make fabulous projects, but you will learn a bunch!
New from Memory Box!
Memory Box Valentines 
We've been (more or less) patiently waiting for the new Valentine's Delight release from Memory Box, and it's finally here!  You will LOVE the 12 new stamps featuring birds, spring flowers and graphical designs.  Plus, check out the always spectacular new 6x6 paper packs and 4 new 12x12 papers.  Something new and fun to play with over the holiday break!
Thursday Free-for-Alls
Each week, we provide a FREE make-and-take project on Thursdays.  You can stop in any time between 10 - 8 and make a card.  No need to make a reservation, just stop by!  However, Marilynn, head elf in charge of the make-and-takes, feared that if she made a really great card for tomorrow, and many of you couldn't come because of travel, holiday preparations, etc., you would be frustrated. And if she made an "average" card, those of you who did come in would be mad :-) So we all agreed to skip this Thursday and resume our FREE make-and-take cards in the New Year. We hope you will join us on January 6!  You can visit our blog each Wednesday to see what the project is for the next day.

Learn at Lunch Gets a New Name

Each Tuesday, since the day we opened in 2003, we have hosted a FREE Learn at Lunch project from 12-2.  In 2011, we will have the same great lunchtime demo, but it will have a new name - Technique Tag Tuesday. Each week, you'll create a different tag that you can use on the fronts of cards or as bookmarks, or you can keep your collection of tags as a fabulous reference tool - your choice!  You can visit our blog each Monday to see what the project will be the following day. 

 Technique Tag Organizer

If you choose to keep your tags as a reference for all of the different fabulous techniques Jenn shares, you may want to join me for this workshop to create a unique organizer, featuring a modified longstitch, to hold your Tuesday Technique Tags and notes on tips and ideas you've learned. If you are a regular to our Tuesday demos, you probably have tags and notes all over the place. Keep them organized in this handy book that you'll reach for again and again!  This class is offered both Tuesday, January 4 and Saturday, January 8 from 10-12.
Don't Forget the Gift Certificate!
For the procrastinator in your life, don't forget the ever popular Angela's Happy Stamper Gift Certificate!  We have made it so easy for your friends and family to shop for you!  They can drop by the shop, or they can call and we will email the Gift Certificate. It can be printed out and delivered just like that!  Won't that be the best gift ever?  Shucks, even I want one!

Holiday Hours

 We will be open our regular hours leading up to Christmas Eve.  On Friday, December 24, we will be open from 10 - 1 for last minute gift certificate and shopping needs.  We will then be closed for the remainder of the year, as is our tradition.  We look forward to seeing you all again on Saturday, January 1.  We will be open New Year's Day from 12 - 5.  Beginning January 2, 2011, we will return to our regular business hours.  We wish you all a very happy holiday and a healthy and prosperous New Year!
