Come Crop with Us!

Saturday (October 2nd) is World Cardmaking Day, but we’ll be celebrating all weekend long on the Paper Anthology Facebook Page with TEN (10!) inspiring challenges, trivia, quizzes, Zoom chats and there *might* even be a few prizes… if you like that sorta thing? We kickoff at 10am on Friday, and run through Sunday afternoon, but don’t worry you’ll have some extra time afterwards to complete and post your cards or layouts. Whether you live right around the corner or are half a world away, we’d love for you to celebrate World Cardmaking Day with us this weekend!

July Christmas Card Club

When: Friday, July 23, 2021, 5-9pm

Where: Paper Anthology (yes, in person!)

Who: The first six fully vaccinated Paper Anthologists who reserve their spots by EMAILING elisabeth@paperanthology.com AND including a photo of their vaccination card. (Please note that ONLY email requests will be taken; no phone calls, FB messages, etc. for this event.)

Why: Because making holiday cards in December, all by yourself, is so much less fun!

Please read all the details, below:

We’ll each be making five cards of one design (pictured above) featuring Hero Arts’ “Holly Berries” stamps and dies from the new ShopBox release; and Penny Black’s awesome “Stitches of Love” dies. The price will be $25 and includes dinner.

As mentioned above, we’ll be keeping the size small, with just six fully vaccinated participants. To reserve your place,  EMAIL elisabeth@paperanthology.com AND include a photo of your vaccination card. Please note that all Paper Anthology staff members are fully vaccinated and we’re taking care to keep surfaces and hands extra clean. If you’d like to wear a mask during class you’re very welcome, but be aware that your (fully vaccinated) fellow participants will not be.

If you can’t make the date, or you’re not vaccinated yet, or you aren’t one of the first six to email Elisabeth, there will be some kits available at a later date, to purchase and make at home; stay tuned for details on those!

What Are You Doing September 25th?

Before we begin, please note that every word in this post depends on the “CoVid Situation” being at a manageable level this fall, and that state and local regulations will allow medium-to-large gatherings to take place!

BUT…

We are *cautiously* proceeding in the hopes that we will be able to hold the Paper Anthology Papercrafters’ Garage Sale on September 25, 2021. To that end, if you’d like to be a vendor, please email elisabeth@paperanthology.com to reserve a spot and obtain your number. Then, please read the rest of this post!

Vendor Information

1. Vendors need not be present at the sale, all items are displayed together, arranged roughly in categories, on tables inside and (weather permitting) outside Paper Anthology.

2. Each vendor will be given an individual number, which must be marked CLEARLY on all your items, along with the price you’ve set for that item.

3. Buyers will be able to pay for all their items in one transaction, and the amounts due to each vendor will be recorded at the register. At the end of the day, each vendor’s sales will be tallied and the total, less 5% vending fee, will be presented to you, the following week, in the form of a Paper Anthology Gift Card.

4. All sale items must be CLEARLY MARKED with your vendor number and your price. Yes, we already mentioned this in Point 1, but experience has taught us, we cannot possibly overstress the importance of clarity! If the cash register operator cannot decipher your price, they will have to GUESS. If they cannot decipher your vendor number, the sale will be recorded to Paper Anthology. We highly recommend un-smudge-able ink and nice sturdy stickers.

5. Prices must end in .25 cents, .50 cents, .75 cents or .00! If you have a bunch of items you’d like to price at .10 cents each, group them together in a little bag! (Grab bags and “collections” of miscellaneous paper or embellies generally sell really well; we all love a “surprise” assortment, right?)

6. Sale items may be dropped off no earlier than the Saturday before the sale (9.18.21) and picked up no later than the Saturday after the sale (10.2.21).
