Paper Anthology will be closed Saturday, May 27th through Monday, May 29th to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend. If you need an idea for the three day holiday, may we point out that this is an excellent time to go fishing? Alternatively, you could concentrate on gardening, hang out with family and friends, or do some papercrafting. As always, the Paper Anthology online store will be open 24/7. Whatever you decide to do, we wish you safe travels, good weather and happy times! ♥
It’s time for the May Edition of Paper Anthology’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit, Peaceful Dove. This kit includes Memory Box’s beautiful Serene Bird and Branch Die Set, which we think you’ll get a lot of use from, both for holiday cards AND the rest of the year! With a color palette of soft blues, greens and teals (with a pop of red!) a little botanical goodness, some weathered woodgrain, and a neutral sentiment, this design will work perfectly for ANY winter holiday you celebrate.
This kit is now available in limited quantities at Paper Anthology for $36;click this link to purchase online (locals remember to choose “pick up in store” to avoid shipping charges) or stop by the store to see it in person!
Don’t we ALL love the idea of making our holiday cards during the year? 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.
Our pre-packaged Holiday Jumpstartkits (cute name, right?) include everything you need (except a diecutting machine and adhesives) to complete FIVE copies of a brand new original holiday card design. This month’s edition is called “Peaceful Dove” since it features Memory Box’s Serene Bird and Branch die set.
This kit contains:
Memory Box’s Serene Bird and Branch die set;
Enough teal, dark teal, pine green and yellow ochre cardstock to make five bird, wing, beak and branch diecuts;
Five A2 kraft card bases;
Five 5.25 x 4″ weathered woodgrain patterned paper panels with decorative corners;
Five pre-cut botanical patterned paper panels with decorative top corners;
Five pre-cut “PEACE” sentiments;
Five glittery diecut tufty branches;
Five tiny black Spellbinders gems for eyes;
Enough vibrant red seambinding to wrap around five card panels
Join Elisabeth for this new three-card class featuring peek-a-boo card fronts. We’ll play with stencils, piercing dies and embossing folders to create our card fronts, and we’ll adorn our cards with Altenew stamps and dies, as well as Spellbinders and Honey Bee dies. A cute and quirky sentiment set from Avery Elle will finish everything off!
Join Elisabeth on May 12th for another edition of Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club: This sophisticated slimline card is brought to you by Impression Obsession– a beautiful serene image of a cottage in a snow-filled forest, softly watercolored and shimmering with fresh fallen snow (you can’t tell in the photo, but there’s sparkly glitter all over!)
Christmas Card Club is the perfect solution for those of us who dread the prospect of mass-producing dozens of holiday cards in December! At each meeting, we’ll debut a brand new original holiday card design and pull together all the paper, embellishments and supplies you’ll need to make five cards of that design; all you have to do is show up and assemble them. A fun way to enjoy a crafty night out and get a jump on holiday card production… and dinner is included! New members are always welcome, but each date fills up FAST, so don’t hesitate. Please note that while the meeting starts at 5pm, you do not have to arrive by 5 – you should be able to complete all 5 cards, even if you can’t arrive until later.
Cost is $25 and includes dinner. Email firstname.lastname@example.org today to reserve your place. Please bring your basic kit and a little holiday spirit!
Join Elisabeth for this three card set featuring all Altenew – stamps, stencils, embossing folders and dies, oh my! Learn a new way to paint your flowers, pair an embossing folder with stencils for a stunning (and easy) card, and finally use a Misti to overstamp a pigment ink masterpiece! (Who doesn’t love the look of white ink of kraft cardstock?!)
Please bring you basic class kit (complete list is on the righthand side of the Class List Page) as well as a tiny fine point brush if you have one. Email email@example.com to reserve your spot; cost is $24 payable by cash or check only. Dates available: Thursday, May 11th: 6pm – 9pm; Friday, May 26th: 6pm – 9pm; Saturday, June 10th: 12pm – 3pm
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 ink and adhesives) to complete FIVE copies of a brand new original holiday card design. This month’s edition is called “Joy and Holly” since it features diecuts made with Penny Black’s Joy Edger and Holly Days die sets.
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!

Always a popular class, these transparencies, paired with glitter film, make for a stunning focal point to your cards! (The picture never does these cards justice; stop in to see the class samples live – trust me, you’ll want to make your own set!) Paired with beautiful patterned paper, with Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn sentiments, you’ll whip up this six card set in no time.

Join Lauren for a new three-card class that’s BEACHY keen! We’ll color images from Honey Bee’s Seashells stamp set with Distress Watercolor Pencils (wait until you try them!); and add sentiments from Honey Bee’s Flippin’ Fabulous set. Make a splash with papers from Photoplay’s Beach Vibes collection, fall in love again with old-school round eyelets when paired with May Arts Burlap String, then finish off with colorful diecut foliage and golden sequins. The only question is, will you send these sunkissed cards to your favorite folk, or be SHELLFISH and keep them?
