Now it ill be hard to top all of the excitement surrounding Betsy's new Dress Up Dolls product announcements, but we are thrilled to present the theme for this year's Stamp-a-faire event!


It seems like lines are blurring between the paper crafting industry and the art world more and more each year.  For Stamp-a-faire 2016 we will be focusing on that with the "Masters", where you will learn from the masters of paper crafting on our team, become inspired by the famous masters throughout art history and become a master yourself as you play and discover new techniques.  This year's event is certain to bring out your inner artist!

There will be a plethora of challenges, videos and tutorials for you to enjoy all day long! Not to mention tons of PRIZES!  And I can't forget to mention the "red carpet" you will enjoy at the end of the event!  This will be a fun and inspirational experience EVERYONE can participate in for FREE!
