We hope you are planning to join us as we celebrate spring with a fabulous open house on Saturday, May 13 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
This year, we are changing things up a bit and focusing on one company, Impression Obsession, because they have so many new products to entice you!!! The owner of IO, Mitra Friant, thought our event sounded like so much fun that she is going to join us!!!! This is an enormous, big deal because Mitra's schedule rarely allows her to visit local stamp stores anymore. And, she's bringing her "trade show booth" - so many products and samples!!!! Bring your camera and come celebrate her presence with us - she's a hoot and a half!!! She will be rotating her demos all day long - and these demos will introduce you to her brand new ink pads - you don't want to miss this!!!
To show our appreciation for your support throughout the year, snag a FREE goodie bag just for stopping in (one per household, please) while supplies last. You'll also receive a ticket for additional door prize drawings throughout the day.
And as always, we'll have a Community Outreach Project benefiting the Nokesville Church of the Brethren Blessings Box(see the details at the bottom of the page). You'll receive an extra door prize ticket for your contributions.
The demos are scheduled as follows:
Demos: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Stipple Stamping & Die Masks - Mitra
Techniques with Shrink Plastic - Laura
Demos: 12:30 - 2:00 PM
Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish - Kathy
Mitra will resume her demos after a break for lunch
Demo: 2:30 - 4:00 PM
Techniques with IO backgrounds - Laura
The Blessings Box is an unlocked container stocked with nonperishable food items, toiletries or other basic household needs (including diapers and feminine hygiene products) available with no questions asked 24/7. People are invited to take what they need and give what they can. And above all, be blessed!
The Blessings Box "stands in the gap" for people who, for whatever reason, come up short at the grocery store but who don't receive formal assistance. Additionally, diapers, cleaning supplies and personal hygiene products are not provided by area food banks and are especially helpful.
Donation Items Requested
Non-perishable food items
Small bottles of laundry detergent
Small bottles of dishwashing soap
Feminine Products (pads)
Diapers (all sizes)
Small packs of Baby Wipes
Gallon Ziplock Bags
Dove Bar Soap

Angela will also have other samples to share, including how vibrant the gels are on black cardstock, and examples of how fun they are to use on gelli plates! Intrigued? Stop by and nourish your brain with some learning at lunch!!!!

The free Make and Take on Wednesday, May 3rd uses background collage elements as well as a sweet girl stamp from @iostamps I don't know about you, but I often struggle with how to layer background patterns with my focal image. This is a great way to practice building a design. Stop by anytime between 10am- 8:30pm to make yours!
