Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

We've been promising for quite a while now that we would do something fun in place of the Great American Scrapbook Convention, which will not be returning to Chantilly this month.  It has taken some time (and lots of emails and phone calls), but we finally have all the details worked out and we are beyond excited!  In the midst of all of that, we've been unpacking TONS of boxes!!!!  So read on to see what we're up to - then come in and join the fray!!!!

The Unconventional Convention!

We were disappointed that the Great American Scrapbook Show wasn't returning to Chantilly this year, and we wanted to do something to recreate the excitement of a convention!  We think we've done exactly that!!!  Join us Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22 for an Unconventional Convention!  We'll have free make-and-take projects from some of the best designers in the industry, booth shopping, grab bags for purchase, a popcorn machine AND best of all, you don't have to stand in line to pay admission!  This event is absolutely FREE!


Sweet n Sassy 


We will kick off the event on Friday, June 21 with SPECIAL HOURS of 10 - 8.  The fabulous folks from Sweet n' Sassy (pictured above are design team members Mary Faus and Cathy McCauley as well as owner Korin Sutherland) will be here with their entire booth and a series of make-and-take and demo projects running throughout the entire day!


The "elves" will work their magic overnight to transform the classroom, because on Saturday, June 22, we'll be hosting the fine folks from JustRite Stamps!  Darsie Bruno (pictured below), popular designer and creator of the blog Crafting with Darsie will be leading demos from 11-12 and again from 2-3 featuring JustRite stamps and coordinating Spellbinder dies, Gelatos and so much more!  We'll also have a free make-and-take project for you to enjoy as well.


Darsie Bruno 


As if that weren't enough, we'll have author Mollie Cox Bryan here on Saturday from 1-5 for a book signing!  Mollie is the author of Scrapbook of Secrets (which was nominated for an Agatha Award for the Best First Novel of 2012) and Scrapped (which has been nominated for a People's Choice Award from the Library of Virginia).  The weekend promises to be a total blast, so plan to join us both days.
