Congratulations go out to Laura Steinert for her winning card submission for the May Card contest!  The challenge was to use dry embossing  – here’s her adorable card:



There’s still time to submit your card for the June contest.  The challenge is to create a monochromatic card – just pick your favorite color and create a card using different shades of that color.  You can use black to stamp the image if needed, but no other colors.  (it’s not as easy as it sounds!)  Get a 25% coupon for entering and the winner gets a $10 gift certificate (and get’s her card posted on the store blog!)


Copic markers are here!    Fantastic kits from Pinecone press, stamps from River City RubberWorks, Impression Obsession and Paper Impressions are due in any day!

May sneak peak and a new teacher!

Hello everyone, we’ve been busy working on a fantastic new class schedule and I thought I would post to introduce you to a new teacher at Paper Anthology, Cheiron Brandon!

Cheiron has been stamping since 2004.  She has been published many times in Paper Crafts Magazine and most recently was chosen as a Hero Hostess  on the Hero Arts Flicker group.  She has a lovely clean and simple style that I’m sure you’ll all love!   Here’s a sneak peak of one of the classes she’ll be teaching in May and June:


See you there!

March Contest Winner!

Please join me in congratulating Agnes Maye  for her winning card entry for the month of April.  The challenge was to make a spring/Easter card and Agnes used a beautiful Hero Arts stamp as her focal point on this stunning card!  The coloring of the robin and the added dimension to the stamped image really make it “POP”!



Thanks so much to everyone who submitted an entry, I love sharing your work in the store!  This month you’ve got till April 15th to get your entries in!  The theme for April is to incorporate buttons, flowers and Ribbon on your card!
