Many of you have been asking about our plans now that our building is going to be torn down. After 11 years in our Reston location, we decided to move to a new location 2.6 miles down the road (I checked) in Herndon. We will be moving from an industrial park to an office park. The best part of the new location? Lots and lots of windows.....even in the classroom!
Our new address will be:
208 Elden St
We will be located on the second floor, but don't worry. There is an elevator as well as stairs. The Comfort Inn is right next door for those of you coming in from out of town, and you can easily walk to places for food and drink.
Our nearest large intersection is Elden Street and Fairfax County Parkway:
Here is a closer look at the location:
The easiest landmark to see in the building is Carpool. To get to our store, you will go through the front door under the 208
We don't have an exact move in date yet, but we will continue to keep you updated.
If you want to read more about the move and information if you want to help, you can read it all in the latest store newsletter:
I hope you will continue to be part of our stamping family in the new location!

Stop in Thursday any time between 10 - 8 and make one for yourself. It's so cute, you could even frame it and use it as a decoration!

Join me tomorrow between 12 & 2, and explore your "messy" side. We'll be playing with both the translucent stains and the pigment metallic sprays. We'll use a couple of different stencils to add layers and dimensions, and toss in some vellum for texture/contrast. And, believe it or not, with all that's going on in this card, it's quick and easy to mass produce. See you Tuesday!

I am going to highlight some of the classes this week so that you can see what we will be doing.
Our first guest this week is Els Van de Burgt, who is the owner of Elizabeth Crafts. We have been carrying her products for quite a while and absolutely love her assortment of stickers, glitters, and metal dies.
on Thursday, October 9 from 1:00 - 4:00 PM
This is the flower card from the class. The stand up helpers turn the card into a self-supporting pop-up card:
I will post the samples from Els' second class tomorrow. I hope you can join us!
