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!

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.

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!
