Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!
We're excited about our next series of Guest Artist classes, the return of the Scrapbook Expo and, of course, all the new stuff that continues to pour into the shop.  So let's get right to it!

One other quick note - we will be CLOSED on Sunday, May 11 so that we may spend Mother's Day with our families.  Speaking of Mother's Day, why not let your kids treat you to a Gift Certificate???  We can take their order by phone and hold your gift here for you, or even email it to them to print and include in a card :-)  You deserve it!

Linda Bradbury Workshops in May
We know you love Hero Arts and Impression Obsession.  And we know you like interesting folds and interaction in your cards.  So, we have the best of both of those things in a series of workshops with Linda Bradbury!  Linda is a renown artist, and a fabulously organized and prepared instructor.  She has done an amazing amount of work prior to the class so that you can relax and not feel rushed, stressed or overwhelmed.  Who doesn't LOVE that?!?!  Join us for one (or all 4) of these workshops.  You really HAVE to come into the shop and see these cards in person.  We can't photograph all the movement, flips, folds and design....

 Linda's first class is Dinner for 2 on Friday, May 16 from 10:30 - 1.

 Next up - Butterflies are Free.  This class is Friday evening, May 16 from 6:30 - 9:00 PM.



Saturday morning, May 17, you'll enjoy creating great Man Cards in Life's Passages from 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM.



Round out the weekend with these beauties!  Southern Hospitality is Saturday, May 17 from 2:30 - 5:00 PM.   

Scrapbook Expo Returns to Chantilly!

We were disappointed when the Scrapbook show left us for "greener pastures" last year.  Turns out, they missed us :-)  And, so, they are back at the Dulles Expo Center on Friday & Saturday, June 20 & 21!  Many of your favorite vendors will be returning, including Heartfelt Creations, Stamps by Judith, Sparkle & Sprinkle and more!

Tickets to attend the show are $10, and the show begins at 10 AM on Friday, June 20.  However, we've got your back :-)  Next Friday, we'll have "early bird discount tickets" available here at the shop.  These tickets are only $7.00, AND they will get you onto the Convention floor at 9:00 AM!!!!  That's an hour head-start!!!  We have a limited number of these tickets, so please call or email if you'd like us to hold them for you. 


More Card Classes!!!

We are beyond thrilled to add two new local artists to our talented group of instructors!

Many of you know Deb - she's worked here at the shop for a couple of years on the weekends, and she "wowed" us at the most recent Open House with her WPlus9 card demo.  We've been begging her to turn it into a class, and she let us "wear her down".  :-)  She taught the class twice yesterday to delighted ladies!  It was so much fun that we're doing it again!  Joins us Thursday, May 22 for the encore Fabulous Florals class. 

Next, we're delighted to welcome Gayle!  Gayle's cards are so incredibly elegant!  They are a breath of fresh air!  If you've ever wondered what to do with some of the small images that you've seen in the shop, you must take her workshop.  These are cards you'll want to make over and over again.  Each card is 4-bar size and comes with a coordinating envelope with a surprise of color in the lining that's you'll create.  In addition, you'll make a bonus bookmark!  Gayle is offering her Clean and Simple class on the day and evening of May 6.
New Merchandise Continues to Roll In!

So many of you are fans of the Wink of Stella glitter brush markers, so we know that you are going to love the Wink of Luna pens as well.  The Wink of Luna pens from ZIG-Memory System are metallic brush pens, and the nylon brush tip produces both thick and thin lines.  The gold and silver markers arrived, and we are expecting other colors to arrive soon.   



 Faux chalkboard cards are so popular right now, and we have a brand new board from Darcies with lots of samples.  Of course, we have all the stamps to recreate the cards.



Have you been wanting to try Encaustic wax (basically beeswax) in your mixed media projects? We have tons of wax as well as their versatile heating tool. You can change out the tips to change it from an iron to a stylus. Marilynn has put up some samples in the store, and you can really see the dimension you can achieve with the wax. She will be using the wax in upcoming classes, so be sure to keep an eye out for that if you are interested in hands-on opportunities. If you have never heard of encaustic wax and would like to see more, here is a link to a video from CHA. 

Get in here - we're bursting at the seams!!!
