For the first time ever, and for a very limited time, Riley is available in central Ohio! Riley is the adorable little moose recently featured in a two page article in Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine (March 2011) and soon to be featured in another two page article in the April 2011 issue!
The Create & Craft team fell in love with Riley, and his owner, Tanya Kostynuk, when we visited Stamper’s Ink in Shawnee, Kansas, last fall. The huge number of images and sentiments (over 150!), the quality of the deeply etched red rubber stamps and the cuteness of a moose in all sorts of situations, won us over.
We immediately knew we had to incorporate this cute playful guy in our projects and classes and now the time has come. We’re celebrating a month of Riley with 4 very special activities:
- Catalog Show – from now through March 13, 2011, you can pre-order your favorite Riley stamps for delivery on March 18. Stop at Scrapbook Art, check out the dozens of sample cards and page layouts, browse the catalog and reserve your favorites.
- Mocktail Party – Join us on Friday, March 18, for an evening of Riley! Come socialize, enjoy hor d’oeuvres and desserts and do two make-n-takes! You also get first dibs on Riley stamps in inventory, 20% off store merchandise (excluding Riley) and a discount on our unique Riley Starter Kit. Riley owner, Tanya, will also briefly join us by video link!
- Riley Card Class – Join me and special guest Tanya Kostynuk for a morning of stamping fun with Riley the Moose! You’ll make cards featuring Riley, the moose that’s all the rage!! Tanya will be joining us live by video link to show us how she uses Copic markers to bring Riley to life. You’ll also have the chance to shop at our Riley Trunk Show before it opens up to the public.
- Trunk Show – Shop our limited inventory of Riley stamps from Noon on Saturday, March 19, 2011 until 5PM on Sunday, March 20, 2011. When the trunk show is over, Riley moves on, so be sure you don’t miss him!
From now through the Trunk Show, we’ll be posting some of our favorite Riley projects here on our blog. So be sure to Follow Us or Subscribe so you don’t miss out on all the Riley fun!
