Here’s one more preview from an outstanding Hero Arts class at the Collins Virtual Retailers Symposium. Would you believe that all three of these cards… Halloween, Winter and Christmas… use the same beautiful swirly background?! Items from the show will be arriving at Paper Anthology in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
Join Shari for Stamps and Stencils and Dies, Oh My! and create this fabulously floral four card set (two A2 cards and two slimline cards) featuring (as the name implies) stamps, stencils and dies from Pinkfresh Studio. Students, please note: If you have a Wendy Vecchi Make Art STAY-tion please bring it with you to class, along with your basic class kit.
Dates available are Sunday, August 1, 11am-to 2pm (note that time is slightly different!); Saturday, August 14, 12-3pm; or Saturday, September 11, 12-3pm. The cost is $28. We will be limiting each class to the first six fully vaccinated Paper Anthologists who reserve their spots by EMAILING email@example.com AND including a photo of their vaccination card.
It’s hard to remember a year with SO MANY beautiful Halloween and Christmas products to look forward to; literally every company attending the Collins Virtual Retailers Symposium has brought their A-Game! Not only will all of the beautiful Spellbinders dies (including the Kaleidoscope Ornaments!) above be coming to PA, you miiiight just be seeing them in an upcoming class!
Impression Obsession have some creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky Halloween items (seriously have you ever seen such CUTE spiders?!) and some truly lovely things- including beautiful longer sentiments- for winter and Christmas.
This edition of the Collins Show is absolutely loaded with beautiful holiday items, many of which will be making their way to Paper Anthology! Day Two finished off with classes from Avery Elle… who are rockin’ CAS Christmas in a big, big way; and Hero Arts whose holiday ornaments stamps, stencils and dies coordinate beautifully. PS: Really loving Hero’s Ornament Looking Glass die set, which lets you cut and layer three levels of windows to make the easiest diorama ever (pictured on the kraft card, below)!
One of the best things about tradeshows is that you get so see new and intriguing items from companies all over the world. Case in point: British brand IndigoBlu is new to us, but a wonderful class using an assortment of their fun and innovative products means that they’ll be coming soon to the Paper Anthology! Meanwhile, Graphic 45 is constantly redefining the minibook and this version does not disappoint: a fabulous book in a box, complete with a journal that features three separate signatures with sixty pages: lined, graph and plain papers.
Highlights from the second day of classes at the Collins Show include Pinkfresh Studio’s “Reason to Smile” wreath, stamps, multi-layer stencils and die (above). As well as clever and useful Gift Card wallets (scroll down to see inside) and a gorgeously autumnal slim line card from Stampendous.
More marvelous makes from Sunday’s classes at the Collins Virtual Retailer Symposium. Above: Altenew’s Watercolor Extravaganza Stamps and Delightful Frame 3D Embossing Folder. (By the way, we just got another shipment of the amazing Altenew E/F’s in, including this one!) Below: Dare 2B Artzy always does a great job coordinating stamps, dies and papers; and coming up with new styles of card… how cool is that double pop up?!
The first class at the Collins Virtual Show was hosted by LDRS, featuring stamps, dies and papers for both Halloween and Christmas. The photo above shows their brand new Pirouette Pattern Templates and stamp set. Spoiler Alert: There will definitely be a Paper Anthology class with this in the future!
