August CCC

Friday, August 5th is the next date for Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club. We’ll meet from 5-9pm* and dinner is included for the price of $25. We’ll each make five copies of this lovely card featuring Hero Arts’ Holiday Candle Arrangement and Champagne Stardust Butter from The Crafter’s Workshop. We’ll stamp, emboss, mask, splatter, watercolor and do a bit of ink blending; and at the end we’ll be five cards closer to finishing off that holiday card list! Please email elisabeth@paperanthology.com to reserve your spot and plan to bring your basic kit and a little bit of holiday spirit!

*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.

Coming Soon to Paper Anthology

Nobody does fun and funky holiday papers quite like Graphic 45 and their new “Charmed” collection (above) is no exception! Meanwhile, Photoplay continues to rock the interestingly shaped albums and gifts; their Explosion Box Kit (below) makes a sophisticated project EASY to complete… just add pretty papers!!!

IO: Ho, Ho, Ho (& CP, too!)

As always, Impression Obsession (above) knocks the quick and easy elegant card out of the park! Beautiful, timeless images to stamp, color and mail! But Catherine Pooler (below) is no slouch either; in addition to gorgeous new CP Ink colors (coming soon!!!) her new holiday trees and sentiments are very strong indeed!

Happy (Crafty!) Holidays

Lots of seasonal inspiration from the second day of classes at the Collins Show. Spellbinders (above) has outdone themselves once more, with a collection of dies, embossing folders and sentiments that will be as beautiful and useful in years to come as they are right now. Hero Arts (below) has some utterly gorgeous layered stamping, diecuts and cool techniques! And of course Lawn Fawn’s “APPLE-SOLUTELY” adorable cadre of mice (bottom photo) are warming up to do some harvesting and baking this autumn, followed by “SNOW MUCH FUN” when winter rolls around. Items from the show will start arriving at the beginning of August, so stay tuned for updates!
