Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

As if April hasn't been exciting enough at the shop, Marilynn and I are packing our bags and heading off to our favorite trade show of the year.  And you will benefit!  We will be learning all kinds of new tips and techniques and shopping for all the latest products!  Hero Arts is releasing new stamps and inks (I'll be taking a class with one of our favorites - Shari Carroll), we'll be learning all about a new product - WOW embossing powder - and so much more.  I'll be blogging and tweeting and ... well, I'll mostly be stamping and shopping and trying to catch a little bit of rest in between.  But join us on our blog and on twitter and on Facebook to keep up with our adventures!

Nutty Buddies for Everyone Sale!

 Sale Graphic  

Also known as the Boss is Away Sale!  On Saturday, April 20, everything in the store is 20% off!  Help us make some room for all the new products that will be arriving soon!  Laura pointed out that this sale is as good as an employee discount - it's like Nutty Buddies for everyone!  And we laughed like idiots!  Want to understand this "inside joke"?  Head over to our blog - Laura will tell you all about it.  And, like every crazy thing that happens to me - this story is completely true!!!


Here's the fine print:  This sale is only on items currently in stock and cannot be applied to special orders, items already on hold or class registrations.  If you are taking a class on Saturday, you cannot combine your class discount and this sale - enjoy the sale and the extra savings! 

Special Catalog Orders with
Art Impressions! 

AI Freebie
Art Impressions has come out with a brand new catalog featuring all new stamps as well as some of their favorites!  They have a really broad range of images including sassy phrases, front and back stamps, gift card holders, watercolor images and more more more!  Stop in between now and next Wednesday, April 24, spend some time browsing and write your special order.  Every order will receive this free stamp when your order arrives.  Pay when you pick it up!  If you can't make it into the shop in the next week, you are welcome to email us your order.  Just get it to us by the 24th in order to take advantage of the free stamp offer.


This is a special order, and the 20% discount does not apply. 



Magenta Workshops - almost full!      
Magenta coloring
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 only have a few spots left, so be sure to check out her new ATC workshop, her fabulousStencil 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.   



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!
