Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

Sorry for the confusion in my last email.  Our street address has changed, but we haven't gone anywhere.  What a pain this transition has been!  It's no fun when the "happy stamper" isn't happy!  Haha!  We have a lot going on, so I'll get right to it....

CD Release Party

CD Release Party

Join us this Sunday, July 15, from 1-5 for something completely different!  I had the privilege of participating in a fundraising project for the Wounded Warriors organization.  Tom Saputo put together 29 vocalists, and we created a 2 CD set of Gospel songs.  The CD set is available for $20 at the shop, and 100% of the proceeds goes to the Wounded Warrior project.  Tom created a YouTube video of my song (Amazing Grace) so you can listen online if you can't join us.


  Operation Write Home Card

In addition to the listening party, we'll also be doing a FREE card make-and-take to benefit Operation Write Home.  This organization ships handmade cards to our troops deployed overseas so that they can write home to their friends and families.  Since 2007, they have collected 1,680,978 cards.  Wow!  You can make 2 cards this Sunday:  keep one and donate one - or donate them both!  If you'd like to bring more cards (or, if you can't join us but want to drop cards off later next week) please be sure to visit their web site for their guidelines.  Hope to see you Sunday!
Olympic Promotion!
Laura and I are "Olympic Buddies" and we thought you should benefit from our obsession :-)  Stop by the shop any time between Sunday, July 15 and Friday, July 27 (the Opening Ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Olympics) and enter our medal-winning contest.  Simply fill out an entry with your best guess of how many total medals the United States will win, then sit back and cheer, cheer, cheer!  At the end of the Olympics, we will go through the entries and award medals:  the Gold medal (for the best guess) will receive a $30.00 gift certificate to the shop.  The Silver medal will receive a $25.00 gift certificate and the Bronze medal winner will receive a $20.00 gift certificate.  In case of a tie, we will choose the winners from a hat.  You don't have to be present to win.  The winners will be announced Monday, August 13. 

New, New, New!

We just brought in a new company to the shop:  Creative Couture!  Their embossing folders are all the rage in the UK and Australia!  Come see what the fuss is about.

We've just posted NEW classes.  Laura has a new Impression Obsession Beach class, as well as two new Memory Box classes:   Tropical and Floral.  Plus, Donna has posted her class schedule through August!  And, I just heard back from Shari Carroll.  She's the super-popular designer for Hero Arts who taught 2 fabulous workshops here last year!  As soon as she returns from Summer CHA, she'll be sending us information on new workshops.  So, stay tuned for that!

And, speaking of Summer CHA - it's that time again when the vendors come out with all new, exciting products!  One of the things I'm excited to see is the collection of Metallic Distress Stains from Tim Holtz and Ranger.  There will be 3 colors...doesn't that sound intriguing?  Make sure you bookmark our What's New page to stay up to date on everything new that has arrived at the shop each day!
