Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

It should be illegal how much fun we are cramming into one day - this Saturday, December 10!  I know this is a busy time of year, but if you can stop by, even for a few minutes, you'll be glad you did!  Read on to see all of the festivities we have planned for the day!  We always enjoy the opportunity to thank you in person for another great year of fun, friendship and fabricating (which was the only "f" word I could think of for crafting). 

Holiday Limited Edition Distress Inks!

Holiday Distress Inks 

Did you get your Limited Edition Distress Inks for the Holidays yet?   These are only available as a set, and Ranger produced a limited run.  Also, please be aware that they are not making reinkers for these pads.  Ranger limited the number of sets stores could purchase, but one of our distributors "hoarded" a few, and he called me yesterday to see if I needed any more.  Awww, that's service!  We are completely out, but if you want a set, please let me know right away and I'll snag a few from my vendor's secret stash!

Seaside Stampin' Ink!

Seaside's Booth
We are so excited that Kathy and Joe from Seaside Stampin' Ink will be there this Saturday with their entire trade show booth!  You won't believe how it will transform the classroom!  In addition to lots of eye candy to peruse, Kathy will be demoing lots of fabulous tips and techniques throughout the day.  You won't want to miss that!  Bring a camera and a notebook and prepare to be wowed with ideas, card samples and more!

Hero Arts 2012 Catalog Debut

Hero Arts 2012
This is one of the most exciting times of the year for us.  Hero Arts releases their new 2012 catalog (which is available for purchase and loaded with fabulous samples made by Jennifer McGuire and Shari Carroll) and TONS of their brand new stamps - and we buy them all sight unseen!  We're always excited to see the UPS man, but this is ridiculous!  Box after box of fabulous surprises!  They will be here on Saturday as well, just to add to the fun.  Wow!  If you just can't wait until Saturday, here is a very generous sneak peek that Hero created of their factory where the stamps are made.  You'll have to watch it a couple of times - the first time I was just looking at all the images.  The second time, I was completely fascinated by the process.  Check it out!

Word from my Mother!

 Meet the Author!Actually, several words from my mother.  I'm so proud that my mom has followed her passion and published 2 children's books.  I know I'm biased, but these books are fantastic!  She will be here this Saturday with her books, in case you need some last minute holiday gifts - get them signed by the author!  Hopefully she'll save all her words for her next book and not start telling stories about me.  YIKES!

 Great Gift Ideas!
Gift Ideas
Jennifer McGuire (store friend and artist extraordinaire from Hero Arts) has created a list of great gift ideas!  We've printed out her suggestions, complete with her thoughts on why these items are so incredible, and put them altogether in one place for your shopping convenience.  Check it out!  You may discover a few new things you didn't know you "needed"!

Stocking Stuffer
We also created some festive stocking stuffers!  Each of these goodie bags contains a notecard set with a coordinating ink pad and reinker and an all-occasion stamp!  These are a great "little something" for teachers, friends or even yourself!

And don't forget the ever popular gift certificate!  We have made it so easy for your friends to treat you to the gift you really want!  They can stop by the shop, call us and have it mailed, or send us a payment through Paypal.  We can actually email our gift certificates, which can be printed out right at home.  It just can't be easier!

Be sure to get your stamping fix soon as we will be closed for our holiday break from December 25 - December 31.  We will be open Saturday, December 24 from 10-1 only.  We will be open our regular hours of 12-5 on Sunday, January 1.
