The big reveal...

Our Creative Challenge "Feather Your Nest" entries will be on display beginning this Friday - May 10th.  What creativity these artists have brought to our store.  You absolutely must see these creations!   The judges are going to have a hard time choosing the winner.  Remember that your vote counts too!  The "People's Choice" voting begins Friday, so stop by the store and cast your vote.  One vote/one entry per person please!  

Speaking of birds, have you seen the owls from Darci's Heart and Home stamp line?  They have owls fishing, playing golf and more.  Father's Day is coming up and these would make great Father's Day cards.  Examples are up on the May boards to give you some great ideas.  Other May boards this month are from Inky Antics and Great Impressions.  Such wonderful ideas by these great stamp companies. Get over to the store before they are gone!

Happy stamping ya'll!

Hello friends of Stamp Antonio Arts!!!

We are so lucky to have a wonderful client base that we call friends. We’ve been so busy growing in our “new” home for the past few years, we have neglected our blog. We love keeping you informed about our classes, sales and events by e-mail, but for the most part, e-mail is a one-way communication.
As many of you know, we just celebrated our 20th anniversary!! Yippee!! To begin our next 20 years, we’ve put our heads together for new and exciting things to come.

First, we decided we need to reach you where you are. We understand that you can’t be here every day (we would love that!!), but we don’t want you to miss a thing here at S.A.A.!! So we decided to start up the ol’ blog-a-roonie, so we can be “together” even when you’re not here.

So what should you expect to see here? LOTS of fun!! We’ll let you know of new arrivals, upcoming classes, sales and specials. We’ll have challenges, contests and artsy chit-chat.

And pictures!! Of course, lots of pictures of new stamps, dies and paper…oh my!!

We are so excited about our new adventure and are pleased to have you along with us. Tell your friends about us and invite them to the party here! The more the merrier!
