What’s New? (Hint: A LOT!)

There’s a HUGE new section of Spellbinders Dies, Stamps, Glimmer Plates, Embossing Folders and more; including seven brand new, utterly gorgeous colorways of Pop-Up Die Cutting GLITTER Foam that you really need to see! Tons of new items for Autumn, Halloween and Christmas, including the beautiful Winter Welcome Sled (shown below) that we all fell in love with during the Collins Show previews. Not to mention the adorable “Dancin” characters, whose legs swing for super-fun and easy interactive cards. And who can resist a Gnome Tree? (Not us!)

In addition, we’ve got three beautiful new paper collections from Photoplay: Beach Vibes, Fright Night and Thankful, perfect for your seasonal summer, autumn and Halloween themed projects.

There’s also lots of amazing new stuff from Hero Arts coming soon… maybe even available in-store today! The best way to see EVERYTHING is to stop by Paper Anthology, but if you can’t get there today, click this link to see all the latest items in our New in Store category!

Cheers to 90 Years!

Our dear friend, Samantha Klabenesh-Dixon’s lovely mom, Ruby Klabenesh, will be ninety years young on September 28, 2022. To celebrate this amazing woman* the Klabenesh family is going all out. They would love for Ruby to receive LOTS of birthday cards, over 100 if possible, and that’s where YOU can help! We know you love making cards, so why not send one to Ruby? You can do so at any time from now till the end of September, using the address below. If you don’t know Mrs. K. personally, please mention that you’re a friend of Sam’s! Thank you for helping us celebrate this lovely lady!

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 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!
