Hero Arts ShopBox is Here!

Christmas in July has never been more exciting, thanks to the wonderful winter-themed Hero Arts ShopBox, which has just arrived at Paper Anthology! Please note that these products are only available for purchase IN STORE, but you can email elisabeth@paperanthology.com to reserve your favorites! Check out this short video showing the collection:

There are beautiful dies, like this three-part diorama, Looking Glass Winter Forest which lets you make a multi-layer forest landscape with just three easy cuts! Hero Arts never disappoints when it comes to stamps, of course; this sentiment is one of three that are featured in the Christmas Robins stamp set, shown in the top photo from Hero; there’s a coordinating die set available for the Robins, as well.

The Snowy Rooftops Old Prints stamp pairs beautifully with the Elegant Window fancy die; (just imagine HOW MANY ways you could use that window!) the “warm and cozy” sentiment comes from the Christmas Holidays Stamp and Cut set which features two large diecut greetings with shadows (“Happy Holidays” and Merry Christmas“) as well as thirteen smaller sentiments which can be used separately or together.

Slimline cards are still a huge trend and this Slimline Christmas and New Year Cover Plate die lets you make an effortless shaker card… plus… you’ve got those cut-out letters to arrange in any way you like on a second BONUS card!

There are lots more beautiful and useful items, including Holly Berries stamps and coordinating Holly Berries Frame Cuts Die Set

Christmas Rose stamps and coordinating Christmas Rose Frame Cuts Die Set

Beautiful Large Snowflakes and Swirls dies…

And a Buffalo Check Pattern Bold Prints Cover Stamp!

To see the entire collection, scroll back up watch the video reveal OR stop by Paper Anthology to see everything in person!

Altenew 3D Embossing Folders (WOW!)

It might seem odd that Altenew’s new line of embossing folders all have “3D” in their name; afterall, every embossing folder creates a 3D effect, that’s nothing new, right? Except… these are DIFFERENT! They’re much more deeply embossed than traditional folders. So much so, that still photos don’t really convey their intricacies. You should probably watch the video!

The collection includes: Daisies, Mod Squares, Deck Planks, Simple Frame, Dreamy Tiles, Banana Leaves, Spring Blossoms, Enchanting Vines, Waffled Diamonds, Whimsical Bouquet, and Decorative Florals . The Metallic Rub-Ons used on these samples come in four different palettes, each with seven coordinating opaque shades that can be applied selectively to any project for some subtle shimmer and drama.

My Girls

This layout featuring daughters Magda and Monika (also known as Henry, Emery and Tadzio’s moms) is made with papers and cardstock stickers from P13’s beautiful new collection, Stitched With Love. The title is done with PinkFresh’s Heather Uppercase and Heather Lowercase die sets, each character in both sets (the lower case also has the numerals 0-9) consists of both the letter AND that skinny skinny outline for a super sophisticated look. FYI: Pinkfresh’s Lea’s Ornate Uppercase and Lowercase have the same sort of outline; while their Kelly Uppercase and Lowercase die sets have a pretty pattern of hearts and leaves cut into each letter.
