Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!
Wahoo!  The ice cream truck  has been parked outside my house 2 nights in a row.  I'll be sick of the tinny music soon enough, but right now I'm encouraged by warmer temperatures and a little hyped up on sugar - I'm not gonna lie!  I'm also super excited about our visitor tomorrow (and all the other great stuff we have coming up and coming in).  So let's get right to it, shall we?

FREE Demo Tomorrow with Faber-Castell!

"We interrupt this regularly scheduled program so that we can bring you the following special presentation."  (In other words, there will be no Thursday FREE make-and-take on April 3).

This lovely lady is Tammie Wilson - artist extraordinaire from Faber-Castell!  She will be here tomorrow, 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 6 FREE Gelatos to take home with you!  (This is so much FREE product to take home, it's like getting the class for FREE!!!  We have 3 spots left, so snag yours right now by calling the shop)!


Then, Tammie will be leading a FREE demonstration from 4 - 7 with tips for working with tons of the Faber-Castell products including Gelatos, Big Brush Markers, Pitt Pens, Chalkboard Paint and more!!!  You do not have to register for the FREE demo, just stop in! 


Since these fabulous activities will take up our classroom space, we will not be able to offer our regular Thursday make-and-take.  Join us next Thursday, April 10, when we'll be back with a FREE spring card project featuring Impression Obsession stamps :-)  



Interactive Cards with Karen Burniston!


The first class we scheduled with Karen Burniston filled in record time, so she has graciously agreed to add a second workshop (it will be the same cards - pictured below) on    Saturday, April 12 from 2-5!  You'll make 4 cards featuring all sorts of Interactive pivots, pop-ups and more! 

Marilynn just returned from taking workshops with her at a Boston trade show, and she raved (practically frothing at the mouth) about what a great instructor Karen is and how much she LOVED the finished projects.  So, um, I guess add some napkins to your class supply list, just in case :-)  And register today so you don't miss out!!


Linda Bradbury Workshops in May

We are so excited to welcome Linda Bradbury for a series of 4 workshops May 16 & 17.  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! But impossible to photograph :-)

Join us for one (or all) of these 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 (pictured above and perfect for Father's Day!!!) and Southern Hospitality.  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!


New Merchandise Continues to Roll In!

You know we always get excited by new Memory Box!  The new release is here, featuring 60 new dies and 45 new stencils!  The Poppystamps new release has 27 new dies. 


 It's the start of a new month, which means a new inspiration board from Inky Antics.  The stamps are adorable on their own, but they also have a line of interactive dies that make the cards even more fun.  Come take a look at how they move!



We also have the new April Stamp of the Month from Great Impressions.  This month's 50% off stamp is the flower duo featured on the card in the  lower right.  We also have all of the other stamps to recreate these cards!



And, we have new colored pencils called Irojiten.  Join Angela for her FREE Learn at Lunch demo on Tuesday, April 15 from 12-2 where you can not only play with these pencils, but learn how to pronounce the name (presumably). :-)
