The Paper Trail 4 has officially begun- it started off with a bang two weekends ago!
In June 2014, Angela’s Happy Stamper moved to a new location which is about ONE MILE from my house! Somehow I find myself having to stop by for various reasons to hang out and see what’s going on. There is usually a class, Learn at Lunch or people chatting about what they are up to. If you are in Northern Virginia you should come and check it out here:
208 Elden Street, Suite 203 * Herndon, Virginia 20170
The class I taught was a Sneak Peek of the Passport Book coming out in April. We had a full house including some folks who had never operated a die cut machine before. I love that- there is always the moment when they see how cool it is when a die comes out perfectly cut or embossed. I never tire of experiencing this through them. The book we made was a Metal-Covered Technique Book and each person who made one had a different take on the one seen below. They were beautiful! We forgot to get a pic of them all though…
Here are the rest of the stops along the way!
The first stop on the trip is the Great American Stamp Store on Wednesday, April 8. Rumor has it that a certain local crafty celebrity might be making an appearance…
8 Church St S | Westport, CT 06880
11:00- 1:30- Doodled Journal Box and Cards
Do you dread writing in cards, scrapbooks or labels because you Hate your handwriting? With a few simple tricks and the right tools, you can write like a pro! We will die cut a Sizzix Recipe Card Box and several coordinating 3″ x 4″ Recipe Cards and doodle them up! Bring your favorite markers and pens to play with and bring home a finished box and cards. A perfect fit for wallet photos, gift cards, tags and small artwork treasures…
Next on the agenda is a stop at a store I haven’t seen yet… but can’t wait to! I saw a post on Instagram and took a chance to see if they might want me to come teach. If you are in the area, please don’t be shy! Sign up for a class! Click below and see the schedule and details…

Make and Take

And then I am on to the Collins Group Rep Show! This show is open to reps and store owners who take classes on running their business, workshops using the latest and greatest products and attend networking events. I went last year- it was my first trip in Scotty and it rained for 4 days straight (and leaked all over the place in the camper) then snowed the day I left! Still it was great to meet so many store owners and have a chance to sit down and talk to them without the hustle and bustle of CHA. I will be teaching two classes and doing a Make and Take from my new Vintage Travel line.

1:00-4:00- Metal-Covered Technique Book
If you live near any of these stores, what are you waiting for? Sign up for a class- you will have a great time and there is no pressure to make anything perfect. The ideas is to allow yourself to play and have fun- from that comes some incredible art!
I get back home for a few days and then I am headed out (in a plane- not Scotty) for Utah and the SNAP! Conference. This will be my second time going- I would have gone last year but my daughter had the nerve to get married that weekend… 🙂 I love all of the event and classes they have that allow you to meet and chat with like minded people. How often does that happen?

So that’s my schedule for the spring. I wanted to add others but was not sure if Scotty would be back in time. Thanks to K & T RV Repair Scotty has gotten his life back. Still work to be done but the camper is looking fantastic! I will make a video soon so you can see the before and after.
This will be a quick trip but action packed 🙂 I am meeting up with my friend Cheryl Boglioli. She rode along with me for the Florida leg of the Papertrail 3 and next thing I know she had a camper of her own. See how much fun we had? Cheryl has done an amazing job of restoring her camper, Glinda. To see what she has done, visit Cheryl’s blog here.
I am just in from a long drive to Ohio so will say good night and to ask you to follow me on the Paper Trail 4 (see my social media icons at top of page). Now to sleep… See you on the Trail…
