March’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit is now available at Paper Anthology and since this one includes Spellbinders’ super-cute, super-useful Bottle Brush Trees Die Set, after you’ve completed the kit cards you can keep on cuttin’ and make as many different versions as you’d like!
We ALL love the idea of making our holiday cards during the year, right? But honestly, it can be difficult to be inspired during the “off-season”. Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club is a wonderful solution, but it fills up quickly, and what if you can’t make it to the store one Friday night per month? Here’s an additional option that works entirely on your schedule.
It’s a pre-packaged kit we’ve called Holiday Jumpstart(cute name, right?) that includes everything you need (except adhesive) to complete FIVE copies of a brand new original holiday card design. This month’s edition is called “Bottle Brush Trees” (for obvious reasons) and we hope you’ll think it’s TREE-mendous!*
This kit contains:
Spellbinders’ Bottle Brush Trees Die Set
Five white top-fold A2 card bases;
Five 4 x 5.25″ plaid panels;
Five pink Knit Picky accent strips;
Five pre-cut “Happy Holidays” Circle Frames;
Five Glacier Blue circle insets;
Enough white glitter cardstock, white shimmer cardstock, pale green, kraft and grocers kraft cardstock to diecut trees and bases for five cards;
Ten pink glitter sticky-back pearls;
Enough tiny gold star sequins to scatter on all five cards;
Complete directions, product details and full-sized color photo.
These kits are now available in-store (and YES, they are THERE right now!) and online at Paper Anthology. If YOU could use like a Holiday Jumpstart, we hope you’ll check them out.
*No, we cannot stop Lauren from perpetrating Diabolical Puns for all occasions. Sorry about that.

Usually “X” marks the spot, but this time a heart does… we’re making room on the wall because Lawn Fawn’s newest release debuts this Thursday, February 23rd, and all of the brand new stamps, dies, patterned papers, stencils, clever mechanicals and more will be available online all day; as well as in-store during normal hours, 5-9pm.

Rev up your engine and race to join Lauren for this fun-fueled FIVE Car(d) Class featuring Honey Bee’s Car Show Stamps and Dies. We’ll color the cars, add them to simple collages of pre-cut map and patterned paper shapes, add washi tape, then construct the easiest ever presentation folder (seriously, it’s two score lines and one cut!) to hold them. The only problem will be deciding whether to send the cards to five different friends… give them as a set to one special person, or… keep them for ourselves!
Dates available: Monday, 3/6 from 11-2; Saturday, 3/18 from 12-3; or Friday, 3/24 from 6-9. Cost is $32. Email email@example.com to reserve your spot. Please bring your basic kit, with all the usual adhesives, including foam tape or dimensionals and a fine-tipped clear-drying liquid adhesive.

The next Paper Anthology Christmas Card Club meeting will take place on Friday, March 3, 2023, from 5-9pm. We’ll be making this adorably ornament-al card featuring Sunny Studio stamps on a background of evergreens with a gorgeous gold-embossed sentiment and the perfect touch of plaid.
If you’re new to Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club, you should know that it’s our solution to the prospect of making ALL of our holiday cards in December. Instead, we start early in the year, and, at each meeting, we debut a brand new original Christmas card design. We pull together all the paper, embellishments and supplies you’ll need to make five cards of that design; all you have to do is show up and assemble them. This is a fun way to enjoy a crafty night out and get a jump on holiday card production! The cost is $25, dinner is included and new members are always welcome! There’s no need to commit to every meeting, we take individual, first-come-first-served sign-ups for each meeting. But… the session always fills up FAST! So be sure to reserve your place quickly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that while the meetings start at 5pm, you do not have to arrive by 5 – you should be able to complete all five cards, even if you can’t arrive until later. Please bring your basic kit and a little bit of holiday spirit!
