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

Holiday Jumpstart: Bottle Brush Trees (Dies Included)

March’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit is now available at Paper Anthology and since this one includes Spellbinders’ super-cute, super-useful Bottle Brush Trees Die Set, after you’ve completed the kit cards you can keep on cuttin’ and make as many different versions as you’d like!

We ALL love the idea of making our holiday cards during the year, right? But honestly, 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 option that works entirely on your schedule.

It’s a pre-packaged kit we’ve called Holiday Jumpstart (cute name, right?) that includes everything you need (except adhesive) to complete FIVE copies of a brand new original holiday card design. This month’s edition is called “Bottle Brush Trees” (for obvious reasons) and we hope you’ll think it’s TREE-mendous!*

This kit contains: 

  • Spellbinders’ Bottle Brush Trees Die Set
  • Five white top-fold A2 card bases; 
  • Five 4 x 5.25″ plaid panels; 
  • Five pink Knit Picky accent strips;
  • Five pre-cut “Happy Holidays” Circle Frames; 
  • Five Glacier Blue circle insets;  
  • Enough white glitter cardstock, white shimmer cardstock, pale green, kraft and grocers kraft cardstock to diecut trees and bases for five cards;
  • Ten pink glitter sticky-back pearls;
  • Enough tiny gold star sequins to scatter on all five cards; 
  • Complete directions, product details and full-sized color photo. 

These kits are now available in-store (and YES, they are THERE right now!) and online at Paper Anthology. If YOU could use like a Holiday Jumpstart, we hope you’ll check them out.

*No, we cannot stop Lauren from perpetrating Diabolical Puns for all occasions. Sorry about that.

How Do Lawn Fawnatics Celebrate Fall?

With beautiful new Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, paper pads, stencils and more, of course! Check out all the newest Lawn Fawn by clicking THIS LINK! There are general autumnal items like the Giant Happy Fall Die (shown above), Simply Fall Sentiments, Magic Iris Sunflower Add-On Die Set (which works with or without making a Magic Iris card, as you can see from the samples on the item page!); and the Build-a-Barrel Apple set.

Then there’s loads of great Halloween stuff like the Giant Trick or Treat Die (see below), FANG-tastically adorable Bats, and a wonderful Nighttime Sky Stencil that can obviously be used all year long, but seems PERFECT for Halloween!

If you’re thinking ahead to December there are wonderful Winter and Christmas items like the adorable Build-a-Snowman Die Set, the fab new Knit Picky Winter Paper Line (in single 12×12 sheets or 6″ Petite Paper Packs); plus we’ve got a super-cool Giant Happy Hanukkah Die and Let It Shine Starry Skies Papers.

You should probably stop in to see everything and check out all the gorgeous samples, but all of these items and more are LIVE in the online store. Locals, remember you can order online and choose “In-Store Pickup” to avoid paying for shipping!
