Cold Season Stamps in Hot Weather

Cool off your Summer Days with A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA

It is time to think Halloween and Christmas! No, this isn't a joke... if you're a crafter. Crafters are usually months ahead of the game when it comes to holidays. By July, most crafters are finished up with preparations for summer weddings and birthdays and have moved on to the next occasion. In the same vein July is when the majority of stamp and paper-crafting companies introduce their fall and winter line-up so we're all prepared for fall and winter holidays.

At The Paperie this means it is time for A-Muse-A-Palooza! What fun! It's a paper crafting celebration that takes place throughout a full week which features the newest and most anticipated products from A Muse. This is The Paperie's second year participating in the exclusive unveiling event.

There will be lots of chances to participate in the Card Classes and Make 'n Takes. Registration for all classes and Make 'n Takes will be accepted on a first come-first served basis as space is limited so be sure to sign up in advance! A Make 'n Take is a convenient opportunity to make and item with materials provided, and then you get to take it home.

The celebrations begin with the A Muse holiday stamp debut on Saturday, July 10 at 9am. You can be one of the first stampers in North America to own the newest A Muse Holiday and Halloween stamps from the 2010 collection. There will also be mini muffins and complimentary Starbucks coffee.

This year The Paperie even has their own official A Muse instructor, Meghan Fahey!(The cards featured here are some of her wonderful creations) Last October Chris and Janna, owners of The Paperie, sent Meghan to Seattle for official instructor training and she was accepted into the A Muse creative team as a Certified A Muse Artstamps Instructor.

All week long, there will be an A-Muse-A-Palooza Raffle. Customers will receive one raffle ticket for each A Muse stamp you purchase. On Saturday, there will be a draw for the Grand Prize, which is an A Muse goodie bag valued at $50! Create an A Muse card using at least one stamp from the new Holiday releases and you enter to win a $50 gift certificate to spend on A Muse product! Drop off your entry to the store or upload it to The Paperie's Facebook Fan Page before July 16 at 11:55pm. A random winner will be chosen on July 17 at 4:30pm.
