Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

My goodness!  There has been a lot of noise and dust over here as they work on Sunset Hills Road.  The good news is that, probably by tomorrow, there will be a new left turn lane (complete with an arrow) onto our little street!  No more waiting and crossing your fingers!!!!  That may be the biggest news I have to share - but just in case it isn't, read on.....

What's New?

Memory Box stamps  

Even though the roads have been under construction, our fearless UPS man has continued to bring us "treats"!!!  We received a HUGE shipment of brand new Memory Box stamps.  The Memory Box design team is featuring the new stamps all this week on the Outside the Box blog.  Check it out, then stop by and snag your stamps!  We also received 60 (yes, I did say 60) NEW dies from Memory Box in fabulous spring and summer themes!   


New Company   

We absolutely love finding new stamp companies to bring to the store! Are you in the mood for something new and fun to color? Come in and check out the images we received from Gourmet Rubber Stamps.  The have a wonderful selection of cling stamps with coordinating sayings.

Last Call for April Guest Artists

Heart Boxes 
We are so excited to announce 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 on Saturday, April 13 .  These boxes make perfect presentations for wedding or Mother's Day gifts! 
Magenta coloring
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, her fabulous Stencil class, and her always incredible Coloring Class (featuring tons of different mediums and pictured above).  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


Staying in Touch

We have been using our blog to display the Demos and Weekly Make-and-Take projects for 5 years or so now.  But we are joining the 21st century and blogging more regularly now.  In fact, we're posting pictures regularly as we open boxes.  Wahoo!  If you want to see what we're up to at any given time, be sure to follow our Blog!  Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter - yes, we're tweeting @AHappyStamperVA.  You'll want to get right on this as Marilynn and I are leaving for a trade show on April 18.  We'll be posting tons of pictures and news about the latest and greatest!  So don't miss out.   


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.  While you're here, don't forget to check out our Paper of the Month - Pink Paislee's Hope Chest - and our Staff Pick of the Week!  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!
