This Week At The Store

Lots going on at the Happy Stamper this week, so be sure to stop by.  If you have a four-day holiday weekend this week, it is the perfect time to do a little stamping!  We will be closed on the 4th, so there will be no free make and take this week.

Monday, July 1st
Class - Impression Obsession Grunge and Splatters
Time: 6:30 - 8:30 PM

Impression Obsession just released a new batch of images with a fun, youthful feel. In this class, students will get to play with the latest solid stamped images, splatters, grunge designs, stencils, Dylusions Sprays, and markers to make four bright cards. This is a inky, messy class, so students are encouraged to wear old clothes or an apron. Students should bring: favorite double-sided adhesive and scissors.

Time: 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM or 5:00PM- 10:00PM
Fee: $60.00
Join Donna for another in her popular Graphic 45 album classes. The team at G45 has done it again with a brand new, amazing paper collection, Steampunk Spells. Expanding on their knockout Steampunk Debutante collection, the two together are a one-two punch you won’t want to miss! (And with Debutante officially retired, this class is the only place you can come play with both!) Even more exciting is the album we’ll be putting together with these gorgeous papers. Working with Graphic 45’s 8x8 Matchbox Book, we’ll be using one of G45’s Design Team’s clever bookbinding designs and cutting it apart and sewing in our book with an open spine stitch that anyone can do! No prior bookbinding (or sewing!) experience required. Come join the fun...but hurry as Donna’s G45 classes go FAST! Students should bring: Donna’s Basic Kit – Detail scissors for fussy cutting, paper adhesive (ATG or taperunner or glue stick, etc), pop dots, glue dots, 1/8” tacky tape (double-sided tape), hole punch or Crop-a-dile, paper piercer, Colorbox Chestnut Roan brown ink – or something comparable and fast drying, ruler, scissors for chipboard cutting, corner rounder and pencil.

The grunge feel of the stamp looks a little bit positive and brighter to me instead of the typical grunge which makes it cool.
