Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

Ready or not - summer is here!  We have a lot of great stuff planned, so grab your calendars and a glass of iced tea, and let's make some plans to be together!  One quick note:  Fairfax County has changed the name of the little street that runs in front of our building, so we have a new address.  We'll be slowly converting everything to this new address, so if you see us listed online or in a magazine somewhere with a "Metro Center Drive" address, don't panic.  We haven't moved!  It's always something :-)

Technique Tag Tuesday

I don't know about you, but I have quite a few graduations and weddings to attend in the next couple of months.  It seems everyone just wants gift cards, and while I understand that, part of me laments not giving a gift people can enjoy opening.  That's why I'm so excited by the Scoreboard dies by Sizzix.  These dies create a "wow" package to share!  And, we are fortunate enough to have the designer of the Scoreboard line of dies as a local artist and friend!  Eileen Hull will be here teaching the adorable House Gift Card Holder (pictured below) on Thursday, June 21.  Reserve your space and plan to join us!  Meanwhile, to get you in the mood, Jenn will be demoing a different Scoreboard Gift Card holder (pictured above) tomorrow, Tuesday, June 12, between 12 & 2.  No reservations are required, so stop in and play!

 Chalkboard Book
Our favorite book artist, Cami Purpura, is back with another fun-filled weekend of bookbinding, August 3-5.  Begin the weekend with "Bookies Night Out!" on Friday night, Then join us for up to 6 more fabulous classes on Saturday and Sunday including the Chalkboard book (pictured above), the Ribbon Bound Guest Book, the Steampunk Leather Journal, the Blanket Stitch Journal, the Beaded Longstitch, and the Multi Section Journal on Ribbon

If you've never tried bookbinding before, or you simply want a refresher prior to the Book-a-Palooza, join Angela for Bookbinding Basics on Saturday, July 7 (pictured below).  You'll get a great foundation for tackling some of the bigger projects later this summer!

New Memory Box Dies


To quote Happy Helper Laura:  "Well, Angela was kind enough to hand over the credit card, and I bought a TON of the new Memory Box dies and stamps. We wanted to make sure people had a chance to get some of the new goodies, so we really upped the quantities (as you can see from the stacks)."
There are musical dies, border and tropical dies and leaves and ferns galore, plus, there are stamps!  We have their brand new nature print images that are great with Distress Inks or Twinkling  H2O's.New Memory Box Stamps

I mentioned in an earlier email that I participated in a Gospel CD project as a fundraiser for the Wounded Warriors organization.  The CD is finally available, and I will be singing at the CD release party at Pistones in Falls Church on Sunday, June 24 sometime between 1 and 4 PM.  It is open to the public, so stop by if you watn.  Following that event, we will make the CDs available in the shop, and also plan to have a CD release party of our own that will include a make-and-take project to benefit Operation Write Home.  Stay tuned for a date and more details.  If you know you want a CD, please let me know so that I can be sure to order enough. 

Our 9th Anniversary Open House (can you believe it??? 9 years?!?!) will be Saturday, September 22.  Please mark your calendars - this is our favorite gathering of the entire year, and it won't be the same if you're not there!  Details will follow soon.
