Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

I've always said I wanted to live someplace with "seasons".  I just never imagined we'd have them all in one week :-)  It's 70 and sunny today, and will be 34 with a wintry mix on Sunday.  So strange!  I'm no meteorologist, so maybe I should just stick to talking about what I know - and that's stamps.  Read on to find out what we're up to this weekend.  And enjoy the weather - whatever it is :-)
Surprise Sale on Wood-Mounted Stamps   

This weekend, we will be offering 20% off all wood-mounted stamps!  This is a great time to stock up (on stocking stuffers - hahaha, I crack myself up!).  This discount does not apply to items already on sale (like the Great Impressions Stamp of the Month) and cannot be combined with class discounts.  Additionally, this sale does not apply to special orders or items already on hold.  Simply stop in during normal business hours Friday - Sunday at snag some wood-mounted stamps at a fabulous discount! 

What's New?
 Speaking of the Great Impressions Stamp of the Month - here it is!  The "candles" stamp is available all this month at 50% off.  The rest of the cards feature other birthday card ideas (and we have all the stamps to recreate them).  If you've finished your holiday cards (congratulations!!!), why not get a head start on birthday cards for the upcoming year?  These cards are cute and punny and perfect for all ages!


We also received two new paper collections from Kaiser Craft: Paradiso and Key to my Heart, that are stunning.   If you're already thinking Valentine's projects, we also have the BoBunny collection of paper that has more traditional Valentine's themes and colors. 


And, don't forget about the new Hero Arts 2014 catalog debut!  This is always a good time - a huge catalog full of new stamps (cling, wood and clear) and lots of project inspiration!  We will have the new stamps in the shop on Tuesday, December 17!  Mark your calendars and plan to stop by!   Also, if you'd like to reserve a catalog, let us know and we'll pull one for you as soon as it arrives! 


White House Ornaments!


This year, we are pleased to be selling the official collectible White House ornaments.  All proceeds benefit our local high school's (South Lakes) band programs. 

The 2013 official ornament of the White House honors the administration of Woodrow Wilson. Wilson was the 28th President of the United States. He served during a critical time in American History when the nation was thrust into World War I. President and Mrs. Wilson visited the troops on Christmas Day in 1918. He was later awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in ending the war and bringing about peace.

The focus of the 2013 ornament is an American Elm tree planted just before Christmas by Woodrow Wilson on the North lawn of the White House 1913. The snowy scene is surrounded by a 24-karat gold-plated frame, comprised of elm leaves, a wreath of olives branches, and holly leaves. Two white doves of peace perch on the olive branches and hold the banner, "The White House 2013".

The words on the back of the ornament were delivered by Wilson in his War message to Congress April 2, 1917. "Peace must be planted upon the tested foundation of political liberty."


Holiday Gift Ideas!
To make life easier for your friends and family, why not fill out a wish list next time you're in the shop?  We have a handy, dandy form just waiting for you.  The staff has also created staff picks - products we love and can't live without.  You'll see our signs posted throughout the store. 
The ScrapMaBob is one of the things we love.  It holds a 32oz cup and has a convenient trash bag to keep your space clean. Use it in your craft room or take it with you to classes or crops so that you don't spill on your projects!



Also note that if you are buying something as a gift, we would be happy to wrap it with some tissue paper, a cute holiday tag, and some bakers twine (see below).


Not sure what to get someone? We offer gift cards in any denomination. We can even email giftcards to recipients if you choose.
