Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!
I met a friend for coffee this morning, and he mentioned the weather.  I swear I'm becoming Scarlet O'Hara, because I simply refuse to know about the weather.  I don't watch the news and I don't watch the weather because they both depress me.  At this point, the only thing I want to talk about is stamping (because that makes me happy), so let's get right to it! 

Fondly,
Angela

Linda Bradbury Joins us in May!   

   

   

 

We are so excited to finally announced (we've been teasing your for a while now) the workshops being offered by nationally known artist Linda Bradbury.  One of you was traveling last fall and came across her classes elsewhere and suggested we get in touch with her.  This is one of our favorite ways to find out about new products and designers (we love our traveling "spies"), so we contacted her, and the rest is history!

 

 

Linda was a stamp store owner in Minnesota (her shop was called The Avenue) for several years before deciding to focus on her main passion - teaching and card design!  She and her sister hold 3-4 retreats every year and her designs feature unique colors and original folds.  You have to come see these cards in person - they open and open and fold and flip....great fun!

She is leading 4 fabulous workshops the weekend of May 16 & 17.  These classes will fill quickly, so be sure to reserve your space for:  Dinner for 2, Butterflies are Free, Life's Passages and Southern Hospitality (featured above).  You'll enjoy working with stamps from some of your favorite companies like Hero Arts and Impression Obsession, to name a few.  See you there!
Faber-Castell Artist!

Why wait until May to join us????  We are looking forward to a visit from Faber-Castell artist Tammie Wilson!  She will be here Thursday, April 3 with this fabulous canvas workshop featuring some of their newest products including Gelatos, Big Brush Markers, Textural Accent Mediums and Chalkboard Paint.  The workshop runs from 10-1, and the class fee includes FREE Gelatos to take home with you!  Then, join us Thursday afternoon between 4 - 7 for a fabulous FREE demo featuring some of the Faber-Castell new products released at Winter CHA!!! 
 
Interactive Cards with Karen Burniston!



Many of you will remember Karen from her work with Sizzix.  She is now a licensed designer with Elizabeth Crafts and has created a new series of Interactive Dies!  We are delighted to host Karen for an Interactive Card class on Saturday, April 12!  You'll make 4 cards featuring the bench (see below for a sample),
a pivot card, a pop-up card and an accordion. Register today as space is limited!

 

 

New Merchandise Continues to Roll In!

 
We have been waiting for the new blending tool from Ranger to arrive, and it is finally here! We have both the tool and the foam replacement packs. The nice thing about the round shape is that it helps achieve a smoother blend of inks without getting the harsh lines that often occur with the rectangle foam blending tool. If you are a fan of stencils, you are definitely going to want this product! 

We also received the triangular shaped Collage Glue stick (perfect for getting into corners - love it)!

And, fabulous NEW stamp designs from Magenta.  So much to see!!!
