Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

Welcome to April!  I thought I'd wait until the 2nd to send an email, because we have so much going on this month, if I had sent the email yesterday, you would have thought it was an April Fool's Joke!  Read on to find out more....

Even more Guest Artists and Trunk Shows!

   All Occasion Cards 
Our month of fun kicks off this Friday with the return of Stacy Rich, owner of Stacy Stamps.  Stacy will be here on Friday, April 5 with two workshops.  Spend a relaxing morning "beach dreaming" with the delightful Lighthouse Minibook.  Her afternoon workshop features cards for All Occasions. (Two of the cards are pictured above). 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!!!!
Heart Boxes 
The month of fun continues with the return of Eileen Hull and Pam Keravuori.  Eileen is the designer of fabulous boxes, bags and dies of all shapes for Sizzix, and Pam is a graphic designer who specializes in unique lettering!  You'll make 2 unique heart-shaped boxes in this workshop offering on both Tuesday, April 9 and Saturday, April 13.  These boxes make perfect presentations for wedding or Mother's Day gifts! 
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!

What's New?

Metallic Distress Paint 

Fresh from the creative mind of Tim Holtz - Metallic Distress Paints!  Enjoy the brilliance of Metallic with all the features of Tim's other Distress products!  We received notification that these shipped yesterday from Ranger, so we should have them here tomorrow!  Fun, fun, fun!


Hope Chest Paper of the Month 

Whether you're a card maker, a scrapbooker, or both, it all starts with paper!  We love seeing all the gorgeous and fun designs as they come out and thought it might be fun to feature a new collection every month.  SO! We're excited to announce the April featured "Paper of the Month" is "Hope Chest" by Pink Paislee.  It features all the fun vintage elements: soft, ethereal, detailed design with botanicals, ledgers, birds, kids, it's got it all!  And we have all the pretty little accoutrements that go with it!  In addition to six different double-sided 12 x 12 papers (that's 12 patterns in all) come check out the fun burlap butterfly 3-packs, the die cut embellishments, the layered butterfly clips, the tag pack made especially for this collection, the words strips...and more!  We also have the entire paper collection in 12 x 12 and 6x6 collection packs.   


Great Impressions April Stamp of the Month  

We also received the new Stamp of the Month and idea board from Great Impressions.  Remember that the Stamp of the Month (the adorable spring bicycle) is 50% off for the month of April!

Odds & Ends

Genius Platform System!    

Genuis Platform System    

We've been hearing a lot of good buzz about this product and have it on order!  The entire staff has requested one - I don't think that's ever happened before - but this product is THAT good!  These platforms can be used with virtually ANY cutting machine and with virtually ANY die or embossing folder.  The required sandwiches are listed right on the packaging - so no guesswork or experimentation is required!  Plus, the base is magnetic to hold your dies in place and the mats are self-healing.  No more warping, cracking or breaking!  And, as if all that weren't enough, it comes with a set of nesting dies!  Let us know if you want us to hold a set for you.  You are really going to love these!!!! 


Fun with Themes

Sewing Theme 

We had some fun this past Saturday putting a themed display together for you.  The theme is sewing, and we have tons of papers, stamps, embellishments, ribbons, papers and, of course, card samples to inspire you.  Come take a look - we'll change the display regularly so stop in and see what we're up to! 


Great American Scrapbook Convention 

We've mentioned in previous emails that the convention will be in  Charlotte, North Carolina on October 25 and 26. But, we didn't want you to miss the fun you used to have in June, so we are setting up our own little mini convention!  Save the date - Friday, June 21 the folks from Sweet and Sassy stamps will be here with their trade show booth, complete with demos and make-and-takes.  Then, on Saturday, June 22, the folks from Just Rite will be setting up their trade show booth with lots of demos as well!  We'll have grab bags, prizes and more!  Stay tuned for more information!
