This Week at Stamp Fever July 18-23

Hi Everyone! The Stamp Fever Design Team is working {feverishly} to get the store ready for Shop Hop.
We should have your official Shop Hop necklace and bottle cap pendants for you to pick up this week. We'll send out an announcement when we've got them done to perfection!
The Shop Hop fun starts July 29th and continues through August 14th. Are you planning to hit all 39 stores? Let us know and share your Shop Hop Adventure with us! Even if you are not attempting the whole "magilla" we'd love to feature your photos and share your Shop Hop stories on a future blog post.

Stamp Fever is expanding our store hours during Shop Hop:
Monday-Thursday 10 - 6
Friday 10 - 8
Saturday 9:30 - 6
Sunday 11 - 5
Make sure you come by and see the store all decked out in our "Fun in the OC Sun" theme! The decorating commences next week!

Tiffany's Christmas in July Class is this Saturday July 23, at 10:00. These card designs are simply amazing!

We are sad to announce that this will be Tiffany's last class at Stamp Fever (for a while at least...fingers crossed that she'll be back sometime in the future). We are going to miss her creative genius; she has been a wonderful asset to our little store. Thank you Tiff, you will be missed!
Call Linda today to reserve a spot in Tiff's class! 714 974-3552
