Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

This Saturday is our 9th Anniversary Open House - it's our version of Christmas, kind of.  All the Happy Helper "elves" have been bustling around, making goodie bags and shopping for the fabulous food and preparing demos and make-and-take projects.  It's a lot like the North Pole around here.  We hope you'll find some time to join us and enjoy the fruits of all of their labors :-)  Read on to find out more!

  9th Anniversary Open House

 Open House Embossing Paste 


Can you believe it's here?  Our 9th Anniversary celebration is this Saturday, September 22!   We've talked a lot about the fabulous make-and-take projects, but there's so much more to the day. You'll receive a bag full of stamping goodness just for stopping by (one per family, please) and a ticket for huge door prizes.  Plus, we'll unveil 2 new stamp companies:  one featuring wood-mounted stamps and the other clear sets.  Bring your camera, because we have lots of card samples to inspire you as well.  Plus, who can resist refreshments (chocolate, anyone?) and 4 FREE fabulous demos in the morning from 10:30 - 12:30.  Pictured above is a sample from Marilynn's embossing paste demo.  Isn't that spectacular???


     Magic Card

From 2-4, we'll have 4 make-and-take projects, including this incredible Magic Card.  Last time I checked, there were only 2 spots remaining, so please call the shop to reserve your space today.  Visit our website for even more details.


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 is available on the web site!

Shari Carroll Returns!

We are so excited for the return of Shari Carroll, Hero Arts designer extraordinaire!  She'll be teaching 2 all-new workshops that will fill quickly!  In fact, we are offering them on Saturday and again on Sunday to meet demand. 


Hero Holiday  

First up is Clean & Simple Holiday, on Saturday October 13 or Sunday, October 14 from 10:30 - 12:30.



Cut That Out  

Or join us for Now Cut That Out Holiday! on Saturday, October 13 or Sunday, October 14 from 2:00 - 4:00.  Or treat yourself to both! 

Shari's designs are clean and simple, but don't be fooled into thinking there aren't a ton of techniques in each and every project.  Last year, students RAVED about all the tips they learned!
 New, New, New!
Die Wall  
As you know, dies and embossing folders are all the rage!  We can't get enough of them!  We've come up with a new way for displaying them - check out the grid wall in the back room!  There are more than 80 different dies RIGHT THERE for your shopping pleasure! 

Emboss Wall 
We've set up a similar display for the embossing folders, too, so be sure to take some time to browse the entire waterfall rack.  There are different dies and folders all the way back!  Wow!
 Coming Up!
Mitten Die
In addition to the 2 new companies we will be featuring at the Open House, we will also have BRAND NEW Impression Obsession!  These new offerings include dies (we LOVE 'em) and some have coordinating images.  There are borders, pennants, flags, tags, snowflakes, leaves, Christmas trees, pine branches, wreathes and more - whew!  Laura's favorite die is the new large mitten (pictured above) that coordinates perfectly with the knit Cover-a-Card background.  Fun!

Copic Book 
We've also pre-ordered the new Copic Coloring Guide 3!  This book should be shipping sometime in October.  It focuses on coloring hair and skin tones.  Hooray!  If you'd like for us to reserve one for you, just let us know.  You may also want to get some hands-on practice in Laura's fabulous workshops on Sunday, November 4:  Intro to Skin Tones and Intro to Hair.
