Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

It's spring!  I know it is because my calendar tells me so.  Sigh....  I actually bought the last remaining snow shovel on Monday in an effort to ensure it wouldn't snow again this year.  Nothing like getting prepared to STOP a bad weather event - so after tonight we should be smooth sailing for the rest of the week.  Which is good, because we have a lot going on!  Read on to find out more! 

Saturday FREE Demo! 


Frantage Demo 

We actually have 3 things going on this Saturday, March 23.  If you've joined us for one of our Open Houses before, then you know how incredible Marilynn's demos are!  You will definitely want to bring a camera and a notepad!  Marilynn has been playing quite a bit with the Frantage elements, and she simply can't wait until our next Open House to share her tips and techniques with you.  So, since she was going to be at the store in the morning teaching her Embossing Paste and Beyond workshop, she decided to stay and make a day of it!   Join us any time between 1:30 and 3:30 and see what she's been cooking up!  You don't need to pre-register, and the event is FREE!


St Pat Promotion 
All of your shopping this week has been "lucky".  For each $15 you spend, you can write your name on a shamrock and toss it into the pot of gold.  Stop in as many times as you like between now and Saturday - there is no limit to how many shamrocks you can accrue!  On Saturday, March 23 at 4 PM (following the demo), we will draw one lucky clover from the pot!  The winner receives this GREEN (reusable - get it???) tote - filled with stamping goodness worth nearly $200!!!!  You do not have to be present to win, but if you come to the demo and then win the tote, you'll have won twice :-).

Guest Artists and Trunk Shows!

   Lighthouse Book
Are you ready to start dreaming about summer?  I know I am!  We're excited that Stacy Rich, owner of Stacy Stamps, will be here on Friday, April 5 with two workshops - one of which is this delightful Lighthouse Minibook.  Aaahhhhh, I can practically feel the sand beneath my toes and the breeze on my face.   Her afternoon workshop features cards for All Occasions.  You know you need 'em!  And this workshop includes cards for men - we all know how hard it is to come up with those!  In addition to these wonderful classes, she'll have a trunk show of her stamps - so be sure to stop in!!!!
Magenta ATC   
Then, on Thursday, April 25, Nathalie Metivier from Magenta returns with a series of THREE new workshops!  Her workshops are just crammed with techniques - and her husband will be manning the fabulous truck show in the front of the shop - so come keep him company as well!  Nathalie's classes always fill quickly, so be sure to check out her new ATC workshop  (pictured above), her fabulous Stencil class, and her always incredible Coloring Class (featuring tons of different mediums).  If you are unable to attend one of her workshops (and that would be sad, because she really is incredible!) try to stop by and shop the trunk show - it's exciting to have so many products available in one place!

Odds & Ends

Class Updates!    

 Glorious Goldleaf  

We've been adding classes all week to the web site!  We've added more workshops in April and have even uploaded workshops heading into May!!!  It's hard to believe, isn't it???  Classes are a fun and relaxing time out, and your shopping on class day is 10% off - an extra perk!  So take a look at the class list (we add more classes and photos regularly so check back often) and make it a point to join us!  (The photo above is for the Glorious Gold Leaf class on Saturday, April 6).  


Great American Scrapbook Convention 

We've received a few calls and emails about this, so we wanted to let you know (although we are sad to have to be the ones to share bad news).  The convention, that for the past several years has been held in late June in Chantilly, has been moved to Charlotte, North Carolina on October 25 and 26.  We are not affiliated with them, so we don't know their reasons for the change.  But we join you in being sad.  We'll plan something fabulous for late June to ease your sorrow - so stay tuned for more information!  


CLOSED Easter Sunday

Mark your calendars that we'll be CLOSED, Sunday, March 31.  We will be open our regular hours on Saturday, March 30.
