Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

How is it possible that September is right around the corner????  Good grief!  Not only has 2013 flown by, but the last 10 years have been a blur as well!!!  We have a lot coming up next month, so don't let the fun pass you by!!!!  Grab your calendars and read on to find out more.

10th Anniversary!

10th Anniversary    


It just doesn't seem possible!  Where does the time go?  We are so grateful to still be here - 10 years is a long time, and there have been so many changes in the industry - vendors and artists and friends have come and gone.  We appreciate you making it possible for us to continue our creative journey together!


Halloween Hoop 


We will be celebrating on Saturday, September 28 from 10-5!  From 10:30 - 12:30, we'll have FREE demos featuring Wow Embossing Powders, Viva Decor Inka Gold, Tips with Trendy Tape and techniques for working with the Sizzix Pop n' Cuts products!   Visit our website to register for the fabulous make-and-take session from 2-4 PM.  As I write this, there are only 7 spots left!  The make-and-takes feature a Halloween Hoop (pictured above), a Memory Box flip card and more!  


You'll receive one of our best goodie bags ever just for walking in the door (one per family, please) and we'll also have HUGE door prizes every 20 minutes.  All the information and details (including the Community Outreach project - one of our favorite parts of the event, next to catching up with you) are available now on the website.  Please come celebrate "double-digits" with us!   

Graphic 45 Week  

 Sketch Contest
In honor of my (Angela's) 45th birthday on September 6, Graphic 45 is releasing 3 new paper collections, and we'll have them all!!!!  (editorial comment:  Some might consider this a coincidence, but I am not among them - haha!)  Join us for a week long celebration as these two events intersect :-)  The week's activities include:

Friday, 9/6:  Launch of card contest & birthday cupcakes

Tuesday, 9/10:  FREE demo (with Angela) from 12-2 featuring new G45 papers and the Envelope Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers

Thursday, 9/12:  FREE card make-and-take from 10-8 featuring new G45 papers


Plus, enter our card contest!  Simply use any Graphic 45 paper and one of the sketch ideas shown above (larger sizes are available in the shop, if you want to pick one up).  Bring the card in for display anytime between 9/6 and 9/14.  One card will be selected in a random drawing on 9/14, and the winner will receive a $45 Gift Certificate to our shop!!!!!

 What's New?          

Memento Luxe pads 
We're having a little bit of a hard time keeping up with all the fabulous new product hitting the shelves from CHA summer.  We've received new stamps and stencils from Tim Holtz, new Archival Ink colors in the Wendy Vecchi line, new stamps & coordinating dies from My Favorite Things and so much more!
One of our favorite new products is the line of ink pads by Memento Luxe (pictured above).  The pads are pigment, so you can emboss with them, they coordinate with the Memento dye pads and the Fireworks sprays, they are permanent on fabric when heat set, they are fairly fast-drying considering they are a pigment ink, and they are highly fade resistant. In other words, you are going to love them!
House Mouse 
People have been asking about House Mouse stamps. They are now carried by Stampendous, and instead of a stamp of the month, they now have sample boards. Their latest sample board (above) has lots of ideas for Christmas using these cute little mice, and of course, we have all the stamps needed to recreate the cards.
Keep your eyes peeled to our "What's New" page for up-to-the-minute updates as things arrive!
