Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

Happy May!  Marilynn and I have only been back from the trade show for a week and a half, and already the boxes are pouring in!  That's incredible.  You know we have a ton of boxes to open when our friendly UPS guy pulls out his CART!  Wow!  I'll keep this brief as I have a lot of boxes to unpack - read on to find out what else we're up to!

Fun with Penny Black!

 Penny Black Week   

Penny Black is one of our favorite stamp companies.  Donna has created a wonderful series of workshops, and we thought it would be fun to expand on what she's been doing.  We are going to kick off Penny Black week next Saturday, May 11 and keep the fun going until Friday, May 17. 


Stop in the shop between the 11th and the 17th and browse their extensive catalog collection.  Place your order and receive 10% off!   (You must come into the shop to take advantage of this special offer).  In addition, Dee will be leading a BONUS Demo with Dee on Tuesday, May 14th between 12-2.  Join us anytime between noon and two and learn more about working with Penny Black's stickers and coordinating stamps (this event is FREE).  Then, on Thursday, May 16th, our FREE make-and-take project will feature the Penny Black Blooming Garden set.  You can make the card anytime between 10 & 8!  Fun fun fun!!!

Guest Artist Heather Telford! 

 Penny Black Splatters 

We are so excited to be the FIRST STORE in the United States to host workshops with Penny Black blogger Heather Telford!  Seriously - we are really, really, really excited!  Lots of you have ooooohed and ahhhhhhhed over her incredible art, and now is your chance to learn exactly how she creates these incredible cards! 


Heather will be teaching her Splatters and Sponges workshop twice (pictured above):  Saturday, June 15 and Sunday, June 16 (please note that this is Father's Day).  She will also be offering the More than Just a Background Stamp workshop on Saturday, June 15.  Trust me - you absolutely DO NOT want to miss these classes.

Odds & Ends



May Paper of the Month

Jillybean Soup Paper of the Month  

We had so much fun last month with the launch of our new Paper of the Month display at the shop that we could hardly wait for May!  This month, we're featuring Jillibean Soup.  We couldn't settle on our favorite collection, so we brought in FOUR!!!!  More is always better - right?  The collection above is Fresh Vegetable Soup and includes stamps, tags and even notecards!  We also have Irish Farm Stew (with bicycles, newsprint, suns and more), Macho Nacho Soup (in time for Father's Day) and Chilled Cucumber Soup (with flowers and butterflies).  These papers are bright and fresh and will have you hungry for summer!


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!
