Cards to Afganistan

Everyone has been working hard to fill some specials boxes of cards to Afganistan:

These were shipped to Linnea who is Office in Afganistan who distributes them......Here is a special message from her:

DiAnn and gang,

WOW and thank you for the box of cards I received this evening at "mail call"!!  You certainly put a smile on my face as I started to look through the cards.  I had to stop so I could finish my work before heading back to the room for the night.  What a wonderful surprise and one that will be appreciated by many in the building ... I will add a note to the box so folks know they came from "Stamping Details"!

Thank you for thinking of us and for the wonderful, creative support - you will continue to put smiles on a lot of faces!

Hugs to you all!


This is a true labor of love from our home and store to the troops!

We are proud to support our troops at Stamping Details!

Zentangle Basics with Suzanne - August 15th

Zentangle Basics with Suzanne
Wednesday, August 15, 2012 • 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Zentangle®, the creation of Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts, is an easy to learn and relaxing method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. Creating a Zentangle is an easy to understand process of simple deliberate strokes, which build on each other in beautiful, mesmerizing and surprising ways.
Anyone can create a Zentangle – artists and those convinced they are not an artist. If you can pick up the pen you can make a beautiful piece the very first time. People who are sure they are not "creative, artistic, or talented" are always delighted and surprised to see what they can create.
Once you have the basics of Zentangle it's an easy next step to exploring additional artistic applications – paper crafts, muti media, fiber arts, textiles – the possibilities are endless, one stroke at a time.
The Zentangle Basics class includes an introduction to the materials used, a guided practice in designing and creating unique Zentangle tiles, and instructions for eight basic tangle patterns.
Please join Suzanne Wilka, Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) for this introductory class in the Art of Zentangle. Your class fee includes a Starter kit of items needed to learn this exciting and fun new art form.
Additional information is available at Suzanne's blog and the Zentangle website.
$35. Includes all class materials.

Jazz Mini Album with Carol Murphy - Sunday August 12th!

Jazz Mini Album with Carol Murphy
Sunday, August 12, 2012 • 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

This little album is "upon customer request" as Carol created a similar one for her Guest Designer spot for Graphic 45. Six pages of Curtain Call delight features a cityscape theme, awesome G45 papers and calendar spots. If you're looking for something small to fit on your desk at work or in your studio – this would be the perfect little book for you. It has lots of mini pockets to house photos, memos, to do lists, and of course the little calendar spots. Add them to your pages or attach them together and hang them on the coil spine as a charm adornment – it's up to you.
Pre-cut chipboard and papers are included as are the feathers, some black and gold tulle, tags, gold brads, bling, extra papers, and coil binding if you wish. You'll be fashioning a flower for the front cover focal point and the fabric will be provided. ("foo foo" spine ribbons will not be added in class)
Please bring: heat gun, glue stick (Carol uses UHU), heavy white glue or something strong to hold the "bling" (rhinestones), and black wide tip felt pen for the edges of the pages only.
