Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

I've been in town two consecutive weeks, so I'm getting a chance to catch you up on all of the news!  Read on to find out about our special Open House to celebrate our last year in "single digits", and the date for Shari Carroll's return to the Happy Stamper.  Also, mark your calendars that we will be CLOSED on Monday, September 3 in observance of Labor Day.  We'll be open our regular hours on Saturday and Sunday, September 1 and 2.

 9th Anniversary Open House


Accordion Organizer  

Join us Saturday, September 22 for our 9th Anniversary celebration!   We'll have door prizes, 2 new stamp companies, refreshments (chocolate, anyone?) and 4 FREE fabulous demos in the morning from 10:30 - 12:30. 

  Inside the Organizer 

From 2-4, we'll have 4 make-and-take projects, including this adorable accordion organizer that holds coupons, gift cards, or just about anything you can think of!  You do have to reserve your space for the afternoon session, and it fills quickly, so don't delay.  Visit our website for all the details, and to register.


Our Community Outreach this year will benefit YoungLives.  This organization was recommended by our dear Susan who spent a week this summer with her daughter volunteering at one of their camps.  The organization focuses on teen moms and their babies, and provides them with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn parenting skills and life skills while knowing that their children are being well-cared for.  Our goal is to help them expand and open a new camp - and a specific list of items will be provided shortly.  Again, visit our web site for more information!

Changing of the Guard!
Technique Tag Tuesday 
We have been so spoiled having Jenn lead our Technique Tag Tuesdays for the past 3 (really?  Time absolutely flies!!!) years.  She got a new opportunity in the "real world" (boo) and is having to give up her Tuesday gig with us.  Stop in this Tuesday between 12 & 2 and wish her bon voyage.  And, while you're here, be sure to make one of these adorable tags featuring "Wobbles".  These springs press completely flat, so they are great for the inside of a card, and they have a lot of action.  You will want to use them in everything - I warn you now! 
Going forward, I will be leading the Tuesday demos from 12 - 2 for the first 3 weeks in September.  You can stop in any time between 12 and 2, and you don't need to pre-register.  It is absolutely FREE!  Then, beginning the first Tuesday in October, our Learn at Lunch will be renamed "Demos with Dee".  You can visit our web site for more information.  Hope to see you!

Shari Carroll Returns!

Shari Carroll  
My buddy (and I have photographic evidence) is returning to the Happy Stamper on Saturday and Sunday, October 13 and 14!  Shari has been one of the lead designers for Hero Arts for years, and her classes are always full of fabulous techniques and fun!  She'll be offering two holiday classes (and possibly a third - we're still working out the details) so save the date and stay tuned!

We've also added a ton of new classes to our fall schedule!  Be sure to visit our classes page and see what appeals to you.  There is surely something for everyone! 
Staff Pick of the Week  
Beginning September 2, be sure to check out our "Staff Pick of the Week".  It will be near the register, so you can't miss it.  Each week, one of us will share the "Must-have" tool, ink or stamp and share why it's so impossible to live without :-)
