Back in stock we have the Bow-Easy, the A, B, & C extended cutting plates for the Cuttlebug, the extended cutting pad by Sizzix, the Solo Thin Die Adapter for the Big Shot (for cutting the wafer thin dies like Memory Box, Spellbinders, My Favorite Things, etc.) and the Only Platform You'll Ever Need for the Big Shot – this is the extended platform and a solo shim, but you’ll still need the Solo Thin Die Adapter to cut the thin dies listed above.

We’ve Missed You!

Stamper’s Alley will be hosting a “We’ve Missed You” party on Saturday, February 2 from 10am – 2pm. There will be refreshments, a demo, and just a good old fashioned gathering of friends. We realize that economic times have been hard the past few years and we just want to let you know that we’ve missed seeing you. So come sit a spell, chat for a while, enjoy a snack and a demo…we’d love to see you!

We have a couple of exciting classes coming up, too! Catherine Langsdorf is a professional calligrapher and has agreed to share her talent with us in two brand new classes.

Brush Lettering - Friday, February 22,  11am – 4pm, with an hour lunch break – $45
This wonderful calligraphy style works well with cards, scrapbook pages and multi-media art work. It is casual and creative.
Tools - bring Tombow brush markers for practicing, but can also work with Copic brush tip. Paper will be provided.

Random Lines & Doodles - Sunday, February 24, 1pm – 3pm – $20
Learn this simple, creative method of drawing patterns (this current art form goes by the trademarked name of Zentangle, and also line weaving or old fashion doodling).
Come see how these simple marks can add decorations to your cards, die-cuts, rubber stamps and various crafts. This will be an introductory course for all levels.
Tools - bring a black Sakura micron-pen size 01 & 03 (or similar tool). Paper will be provided.

Catherine Langsdorf is a professional calligrapher from Hendersonville, NC. Catherine has been studying letterforms for 25 years and teaching for 20 years. Catherine's work can be seen on line at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/clangsdorf/Long Village Lettering  OR  Alphabee Tangles. Catherine creates calligraphy works, multi-media art and Zentangle Inspired Art.

Samples will be coming soon!!! These classes will probably fill up quickly, so don’t wait too long to sign up.

2013

We just want to wish each and every one of you a Happy & Healthy New Year. Thank you all for your friendship and your support in 2012 and we hope to see you often in 2013!

We want to remind you that we will be open on Wednesdays now! We have also put a lot of items on sale, in addition to the ones already marked down.

We have the new January Inky Antics HoneyPop Board and through January 12, if you purchase one set of clear stamps from this new board you can get another set from the same board at 40% off. You will also receive a detailed instruction sheet for all of the cards on the board. Now, that is a pretty good deal! Here is a photo of the board:

Adorable! There are some new colors of the HoneyPop paper, too – really pretty, bright colors. We have a sneak peek of the February board for you, too.

February 2013 Sample Board Photo

No HoneyPop paper used on this one, but isn’t it gorgeous? Very colorful & Spring-y, with all of those butterflies, birds, flowers, and bees. Just what we need during a cold winter – hope of warmer Springtime weather not too far away.

Stop in soon and check out the sale items and the new Inky Antics boards!
