Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

Hooray!  Boxes are starting to roll in from Summer CHA!  Poor UPS man Rory has been battling extreme heat to bring us our goodies, and we're grateful!  Yesterday, we unpacked stamps and an idea book from LaBlanche, a new company from Germany.  We have all of the new Distress Stain colors, and today we unpacked the new Mini Paint collections from Claudine Hellmuth (more on that below).  And there's much more to come!  We're excited about brand new products coming from Stampendous and Tsukineko and Hero Arts/Sizzix....whew!  Remember to check our What's New page regularly to stay informed of what the "elves" are unpacking each day.


Operation We R Grateful!

Operation Write HomeHere's yet another update from the Operation Write Home contest sponsored by We R Memory Keepers.  We mailed in a box weighing more than 14 lbs last week.  We understand there were 2 shops in Florida that mailed in more than 10,000 cards each!  The troops will be so thrilled to receive these packages!  We R Memory Keepers selected a handful of cards from the thousands they received and will put them on their Facebook page beginning tomorrow.  They are asking folks to vote for a card in each category, and the person who created each winning card will receive a $50 prize pack from We R Memory Keepers.  We're excited that two of you who donated cards through our shop are included in this final contest!  Please place your votes for Nancy Bower and Becca Aitken!  You can vote from 8/10 - 8/16.  And, thanks again to everyone who participated!

New From Ranger!

Mini Paints from Claudine HellmuthThe talented Claudine Hellmuth created a line of highly pigmented acrylic paints a couple of years ago.  We love them because a little goes a long way!  They also mix beautifully to create a huge range of colors.  Now, Ranger has created these fabulous mini collection packs to make collecting and mixing even easier!  In addition to the acrylic paints, there is a collection pack of Gesso, Multi Medium in Matte and Gloss, and the NEW Black Gesso.  Want to know more?  Join us for our FREE Technique Tag Tuesday on August 30 between 12-2 for a chance to play with these new products as well as Claudine's Sticky Back Canvas.  You can also scan the QR code we have posted in the shop with your SmartPhone to retrieve a free color mixing guide!  You'll find several other QR codes posted throughout the shop!  Visit our blog to find out more about QR codes.


8th Anniversary Open House!
Open House Make and Take
In our last email, we shared photos of the Stair-step Card and the Never-ending Card.  Here's a photo of the third (out of 4) make-and-take projects we'll be sharing at our 8th Anniversary Open House on Saturday, September 10 from 10-5.  You'll make this fabulous little accessories organizer (buttons not included).  We have several fun demos and a trunk show with Verses Stamps scheduled from 10:30 - 12:30 and our fabulous make-and-takes from 2-4.  Plus 2 stamp swaps, door prizes, refreshments and more!  This is one of our favorite days of the year, so we hope you can stop in and celebrate with us!  You must reserve your space for the make-and-takes, and they fill up quickly, so don't delay!
You asked, we listened!

One of the stamp companies you've asked us to carry is Stamps by Judith.  We love their cute peg stamps, but they have a HUGE opening order.  So, we're asking for your help.  Stop in between Wednesday, August 10 and Wednesday, August 24 and browse through the catalog.  Place your special orders with us and we'll put together a huge order on the 25th.  We'll be able to add new images and restock easily once the opening order has been placed.  Teamwork!
