Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

This fabulous hobby that we all enjoy so much is so important to our well-being that we get to celebrate it for an entire month!  No "day" will do!  We have a lot going on this month (not just because it's National Craft Month - there's always a lot going on here), so read on to find out what we have planned.  And, get out and celebrate this month that's just for you! 

National Craft Month
Inky Antics Slider Card

In honor of National Craft Month, I have made the insane resolution to try to post something to inspire you each and every day in March on either our Blog or on our Facebook page.  These posts could include card ideas, new products reviews (with pictures) or whatever else is inspiring me at the moment.  Laura and I will also be attending a trade show towards the end of the month, so there is sure to be lots to post about there!  I hope you'll bookmark both of those pages and check back for some new ideas!  Also, feel free to post your own card ideas or product reviews on our Facebook page.  We love the feedback of what you're doing and enjoying!


The card above is from the brand new Inky Antics sample board for March.  You can't tell from the picture, but it's a really unique "slider card".  I have printed out the instructions (complete with measurements) and have them available at the shop.  Be sure to give the card a try for yourself, then snag a set of instructions so you can make one - very cool!

Happy Birthday, Hare!

Birthdays with Rosie


Not only is this Saturday, March 10, the last day before Daylight Savings Time (hip, hip, hooray!), it's also Happy Helper Harriett's birthday!  And her ogre of a boss is making her work.  Well, that's not exactly what happened, but the bottom line is that if you stop in and shop this Saturday, March 10, you'll not only get to wish Hare a very happy birthday, but you'll also be treated to birthday cake and iced tea!  Fun!  Please join us!


Speaking of birthdays, if you need to get a head start on birthday cards for the year, why not join Melinda on Sunday, March 25 for her Birthdays with Rosies class?  (One of the class cards is pictured above).  You'll have fun and cross something off your "to do" list at the same time!

Magenta Workshops with Nathalie

Alcohol Inks Magenta Style
We have just a handfull of spaces left in with workshops with Nathalie Metivier from Magenta!  Nathalie is an incredible teacher (plus, it's just fun to sit and listen to her lilting accent), and she will be sharing her tips and techniques with us in two all new classes.

On Thursday, March 29, Nathalie will be teaching the Alcohol Inks workshop from 10:30 - 1:30 followed by the Creative Coloring Workshop later that evening from 6:00 - 9:00 PM.   

Creative Coloring with Magenta  
In addition to these fabulous workshops, Nathalie will have a selection of Magenta stamps, papers, cork and chipboard elements and more as part of her traveling trunk show.  Don't miss this opportunity to learn from one of the industry giants, and to shop from their huge selection of merchandise!  You don't have to be registered for the workshops in order to shop the trunk show, however if you take one of the classes, your shopping is 10% off that day, including the trunk show!  Wahoo!
