70% Off?! NO WAY! (Yes, Way!)

The Paper Anthology Store Closing Sale continues and you might think there cannot be anything awesome left, but boy would you be wrong! We still have lots of stamps, dies, stencils, tools, cardstock and patterned paper from your favorite brands including Spellbinders, Gina K, Taylored Expressions, Lawn Fawn, Art Impressions, Penny Black, Stampendous, AlteNew and lots more! Soooooo… starting tomorrow evening, Thursday, June 20th, all FULL-PRICED inventory will be 70% off!

Clearance bins and store props are not included in the sale, because they’re already at amazing bargain prices; but we keep finding interesting treasures to add to the Clearance section, as well as cards and project samples from various classes throughout the years. By the way, we’re also selling the fixtures, fittings, furniture and display items; and quite a few have been reserved, but there are lots left, so if you need paper racks, slat-wall accessories, spinners or other storage, please email elisabeth@paperanthology.com to inquire, or speak to Elisabeth when you stop by to shop.

Our store hours are: Thursday and Friday evenings 5-9pm; Saturday 10am to 5pm; Monday, 10am to 2pm; Tuesday 10am to 5pm. Many thanks to everyone who’s come out to shop, to save, and to say goodbye!  Giftcards and full punch-cards will continue to be honored; this sale is in-store only.

PS: We’re getting ready to officially launch our Etsy Shop, Paper Anthology Design, in which we’ll continue to offer holiday and all-occasion card kits, so keep an eye on your inbox for an imminent announcement!

January’s Holiday Jumpstart: Poinsettia Joy

January’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit is our pre-packaged kit that includes everything you need (except adhesives) to complete FIVE copies of this new original holiday card design. It’s called “Poinsettia Joy” since it features diecuts from Penny Black’s Stitched Poinsettia die set and Memory Box’s Brilliant Joy die set. This kit is available in-store and online for $25. Locals, be sure to choose the “PICK UP IN STORE” option at checkout to save on shipping and we’ll keep it behind the counter until you’ve got time to pick it up.

We all adore the IDEA of making holiday cards throughout the year, instead being overloaded in November and December, but it can be difficult to be inspired during the “off-season”. Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club is a wonderful solution, but it fills up quickly, and what if you can’t make it to the store one Friday night per month? Here’s an additional, self-paced option that works entirely on your schedule.

This pre-packaged kit features everything you need (except adhesives) to complete five beautiful, shimmery Poinsettia Joy cards, including complete written instructions and a nice big photo for reference.

This kit contains:

  • Five pre-cut and pierced panels of Lawn Fawn’s Snowflake Backdrop
  • Five pre-diecut large poinsettia layers
  • Five pre-diecut small poinsettia layers
  • Five pre-diecut poinsettia centers
  • Ten pre-diecut poinsettia leaves
  • Five pre-diecut two-piece “Joy” sentiments
  • Five pre-diecut diamond plaid pieces
  • Complete step-by-step instruction sheet
  • Five top-fold white A2 cards

Last Holiday Jumpstart Kit of 2023!

December’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit is our pre-packaged kit that includes everything you need (except adhesives) to complete FIVE copies of this new original holiday card design. It’s called “Wooded Wonderland” since it features this lovely forest scene built using Memory Box, Spellbinders, Sunny Studio and Taylored Expressions dies. This kit is available in-store and online for $24. Locals, be sure to choose the “PICK UP IN STORE” option at checkout to save on shipping and we’ll keep it behind the counter until you’ve got time to pick it up.

This kit is slightly less of a “Jumpstart” as we move into December, but if you’re still working on holiday cards, you may appreciate having five more that just need simple assembly. This will be the last Holiday Jumpstart Kit of 2023, but don’t worry, we’ll be back with brand new variations starting in January of 2024!

This pre-packaged kit features everything you need (except adhesives) to complete five beautiful, shimmery Wooded Wonderland cards, including complete written instructions and a nice big photo for reference.

This kit contains:

  • Five pre-cut and corner-embellished creamy Lawn Fawn Knit Picky patterned paper panels
  • Five pre-diecut green Lawn Fawn Spiffier Speckles arched pieces (with gold metallic detail!)
  • Five pre-diecut Memory Box Winter Wood diecuts
  • Five pre-diecut Memory Box Deer Trios
  • Five glittery sage green “Noel” sentiments
  • Fifteen ivory shimmer snowflakes
  • Complete step-by-step instruction sheet
  • Five top-fold kraft A2 cards

It’s a Big BLOOMIN’ Sale (With a Twist!)

We call it Flower Frenzy and you can take 25% OFF any product in the store which features at least ONE FLOWER! So what does that cover? Flower stamp sets like Altenew, Penny Black and Pinkfresh? (Of course!) What about a cute Lawn Fawn set that has ten mice and one flower? (Still counts!) Patterned paper with flowers? (Uh-huh!) Flower dies and stencils? (Certainly!) Paper flowers? (Obviously!) Aha, but what about Inks, paints and embossing powders though, it can’t cover those, right? Yes, it can…If they have a flower name like Tattered Rose Distress or Rosey Posey Archival (Hint: MANY of the Wendy Vecchi inks have flower names and lots come in both Dye and Archival formulas!) What about leafy stamps and dies? Ok no, those would not count, ’cause it’s a Flower Frenzy, not a Foliage Frenzy. Basically, if it LOOKS flowery or it SOUNDS flowery, it’s 25% off! There are waaaaaaaay too many items to mention as examples, so you should probably just stop by and see how many you can find!

The fine print: Sale starts Thursday evening at 5pm (4/20) and runs through Saturday evening (4/22) at 5pm and applies to in-stock, in-store purchases only; clearance items are excluded. No loyalty card punches will be given on sale-priced items. Paper Anthology cannot provide allergy medication for flower-related allergies, but we do have tissues. Hope to see you at the sale!

CCC: October Edition

Join Elisabeth for another edition of Christmas Card Club!  The card is inspired by a birthday card Elisabeth received from Beverly Rowan – a super-sophisticated, yet fantastically simple stand-up card that folds flat to fit in an A2 envelope. Lawn Fawn stamps and dies from Hero Arts and Penny Black are featured.

This edition will take place on Friday, October 28th, from 5 – 9 pm. Cost is $26 and includes dinner. Email elisabeth@paperanthology.com to reserve your place. Participants are requested to bring their basic kit and a little bit of holiday spirit! All the paper, embellishments and supplies you’ll need to make five cards of this design will be prepared; all you have to do is show up and assemble them. It’s a fun way to enjoy a crafty night out and get a jump on holiday card production. New members are always welcome, but space is limited, so email Elisabeth today!   

(Please note that while the meeting starts at 5pm, you do not have to arrive by 5pm – you should be able to complete all five cards, even if you can’t arrive until later.)
