April Holiday Jumpstart: SNOW Much Fun!

Say hello to our April Holiday Jumpstart: SNOW Much Fun, named for the adorable snowperson and sentiment! Jumpstart your holiday card-making with our latest kit; all of the composing, compiling and diecutting are already done; YOU jump right to the fun part: Assembling the sweet snowpersons and deciding to whom you will send them!

Paper Anthology’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 “Snow Much Fun” because the star of the show is the adorable frosty friend made with Spellbinders’ Huggable Snowman  die set. Bright colors and fun patterns make this the sweetest snowperson on the block!

This kit is available for $25 in-store and online; CLICK HERE to go directly to the product page. Locals, be sure to choose the “LOCAL PICK UP ” option at checkout to save on shipping and we’ll keep it behind the counter until you’ve got time to pick it up.

Don’t we all adore the IDEA of making holiday cards throughout the year, instead being overloaded in November and December? But sometimes it’s hard 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, colorful, fun and festive cards, including complete written instructions and a nice big photo for reference.

This kit contains:

    • Five snowy teal background panels
    • Five white glitter paper snowy foregrounds
    • Five pre-diecut Spellbinders’ Huggable Snowmen
    • Five pre-diecut hats, scarves & sets of mittens,
    • Five pre-diecut “Let it Snow” sentiments
    • Enough carrot noses, holly sprigs and other accessories for five snowmen
    • Complete step-by-step instruction sheet with large color photo
    • Five top-fold white A2 cards

Holiday Jumpstart: Celebrate the Season

Say hello to our March Holiday Jumpstart: Celebrate the Season. When it arrives, everything in your kit is silver or white, which means that you can add literally ANY colors you love to make this design truly your own. Details about the five specific blends of Ranger Distress Oxide Inks used on the samples are provided, but this technique will work with literally any two analogous colors of blend-able water-based inks you’d like to use!

Paper Anthology’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit is our pre-packaged kit that includes everything you need (except inks, adhesives and optional dimensional paint drops) to complete FIVE copies of this new original holiday card design. It’s called “Celebrate the Season” because of the elegant two-part sentiment (pre-cut for you with Altenew’s Christmas Season die set). The debossed panels are made with Altenew’s Starry Pattern 3-D Embossing Folder, which resembles (to Lauren, at least!) stylized snowflakes.

This kit is available for $25 in-store and online; CLICK HERE to go directly to the product page. Locals, be sure to choose the “LOCAL PICK UP ” option at checkout to save on shipping and we’ll keep it behind the counter until you’ve got time to pick it up.

New Class: Let’s Get Inky!

Come and get INKY with Lauren! In this technique-driven class we’ll blend Distress Oxide Inks on plain cardstock, through a stencil and atop white-embossing; then we’ll stamp, we’ll stencil, we’ll overstamp in Ranger Archivals, we’ll stencil a bit more, we’ll do a little bit of coloring (with Tombows), we’ll diecut and… well, we will generally celebrate all the stamping techniques that made us love this hobby, but we’ll revisit them in new ways for a fresh, eclectic look. This class features stamps, stencils, dies and gorgeous butterfly ephemera from Aall & Create as well as Ranger Inks.

Cost is $24 and payable by cash or check only. Dates available: Monday, April 8th: 11am-2pm; Saturday, April 13th: 12-3pm; Friday, May 3rd: 6-9pm. Email elisabeth@paperanthology to reserve your place. Students are requested to bring their basic class kit. We won’t be getting terribly messy, but you might not want to wear anything white or dry-clean only! ;)
