Fawn, Fawn, Fawn!
The new Lawn Fawn Spring Release is HERE, with dozens of fabulous new items that you are sure to love! These are already so popular that unfortunately, for this event only, we cannot “hold” any items for you, BUT… local customers, remember you can purchase items online and choose “Pick Up in Store” where they will safely await your arrival. And don’t worry, we’ll be re-stocking the most popular items almost immediately, so if you miss out right now, don’t despair! There’s lots of Easter and Spring themed items, plus TWO gorgeous new paper lines: Stripes and Sprinkles (pictured behind the card samples above)and What’s Sewing On with pretty florals on one side and adorable sewing motifs on the other (pictured at the very bottom of this post). We’re open tonight and tomorrow (Thursday and Friday 3/23 & 3/24) from 5 to 9pm and Saturday (3/25) from 10am to 5pm.
“Are We There Yet” Five Card Kit, Now Available
If you thought Lauren’s fun-fueled FIVE Car(d) and a Folder Class sounded great, but you’re too far (or too busy) to attend, we’ve got the perfect solution: Here it is, as a Paper Anthology Class in a Kit! The kit features the same fabulous ingredients you’d be using in class… just in a more portable format.
This kit contains:
- Five stamped and diecut Classic Cars from Honey Bee’s “Car Show” stamp set (1967 Chevy Malibu, 1956 Bel Air, 1963 Corvette Sting Ray, 1932 Ford Model A and 1960 Chevy Nova)
- Five 4 x 5.25″ patterned paper background panels
- All of the pre-cut collage panels for each card, with washi tape applied
- Five pre-stamped sentiments, from Honey Bee’s “You’re a Classic” set, ready to be trimmed into flags
- Five white folded A2 cards
- One pre-cut, scored and folded presentation folder (just add adhesive!)
- Pre-stamped panel, mat, heart and seambinding for front of folder, ready to assemble
- Full color photos
- Complete step-by-step written instructions
You’ll color the cars using your favorite coloring tools, assemble the pre-cut pieces into simple collages with the photos to guide you, and add the sentiments to complete each card. You’ll use pre-stamped and diecut pieces to decorate the presentation folder. The only problem will be deciding whether to send the cards to five different friends… give them as a set to one special person, or… keep them for yourself!
“Are We There Yet?” kits are in-store and online now!
Meanwhile, if you DO live nearby, there are still a few spots in the March 6th, March 18th and March 24th classes, so email email@example.com to reserve a spot!
Attention: Lawn Fawnatics!
Usually “X” marks the spot, but this time a heart does… we’re making room on the wall because Lawn Fawn’s newest release debuts this Thursday, February 23rd, and all of the brand new stamps, dies, patterned papers, stencils, clever mechanicals and more will be available online all day; as well as in-store during normal hours, 5-9pm. Email Elisabeth or call the store at (973)927-1210 to reserve your favorites. We think you’ll be as smitten as we are with the sweet new critters and all the cool accessories.
Frost Flowers Card Kit (with Stamps!)
If you missed Lauren’s Frost Flowers Class, or if you live slightly further away from Paper Anthology, you might be interested in this brand new Frost Flowers Card Kit! It features the Altenew Paint-a-Flower: Sweet Pea Stamp Set used in the class, as well as complete step-by-step instructions for completing all three cards, and all of the diecut foliage and sentiments, pre-cut patterned paper and stenciled panels, ribbon and A-2 cardbases. All you need to complete the cards are inks, adhesives and coloring implements. Then, afterwards, you can make additional cards of your own design featuring the beautiful Sweet Pea stamps and all of the sentiments in the stamp set. The cost is $40. Click THIS LINK to visit the product page, add the kit to your cart, then check out as normal. Locals, remember there’s a “Pick Up in Store” option that lets you avoid paying for shipping.
NEW Five Card Class: Are We There Yet?
Rev up your engine and race to join Lauren for this fun-fueled FIVE Car(d) Class featuring Honey Bee’s Car Show Stamps and Dies. We’ll color the cars, add them to simple collages of pre-cut map and patterned paper shapes, add washi tape, then construct the easiest ever presentation folder (seriously, it’s two score lines and one cut!) to hold them. The only problem will be deciding whether to send the cards to five different friends… give them as a set to one special person, or… keep them for ourselves!
Dates available: Monday, 3/6 from 11-2; Saturday, 3/18 from 12-3; or Friday, 3/24 from 6-9. Cost is $32. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
