How cool would it be to saunter into August with TEN beautiful, unique cards in your Christmas Card stash? If you answered, “Pretty darn cool!” then this one-day, extra-special, quick and easy card class, Christmas in July: Take Ten is definitely for you! Join Lauren from 12-3pm on Saturday, July 29th for this Xmas Xtravaganza: we’ll start with a sheet of ten journal cards from Photoplay’s It’s a Wonderful Christmas collection, add pre-cut patterned paper mats, washi tape, brads, diecuts, ribbon and sparkly things… et voila… you’ll go home with an instant collection of eight A2 holiday cards and two slightly larger cards (for the latter, A6 envelopes will be provided).
There are just eight seats available for the class, but... the same supplies will also be available as July’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit, which can be pre-ordered now.
The cost is $35. Claim your spot in the July 29th in-store class OR reserve a Holiday Jumpstart: Christmas in July Card Kit by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org today!

Don’t we ALL love the idea of making our holiday cards during the year? 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.
Our pre-packaged Holiday Jumpstartkits (cute name, right?) include everything you need (except a diecutting machine and adhesives) to complete FIVE copies of a brand new original holiday card design. This month’s edition is called “Peaceful Dove” since it features Memory Box’s Serene Bird and Branch die set.
This kit contains:
Memory Box’s Serene Bird and Branch die set;
Enough teal, dark teal, pine green and yellow ochre cardstock to make five bird, wing, beak and branch diecuts;
Five A2 kraft card bases;
Five 5.25 x 4″ weathered woodgrain patterned paper panels with decorative corners;
Five pre-cut botanical patterned paper panels with decorative top corners;
Five pre-cut “PEACE” sentiments;
Five glittery diecut tufty branches;
Five tiny black Spellbinders gems for eyes;
Enough vibrant red seambinding to wrap around five card panels
Join Lauren for a new three-card class that’s BEACHY keen! We’ll color images from Honey Bee’s Seashells stamp set with Distress Watercolor Pencils (wait until you try them!); and add sentiments from Honey Bee’s Flippin’ Fabulous set. Make a splash with papers from Photoplay’s Beach Vibes collection, fall in love again with old-school round eyelets when paired with May Arts Burlap String, then finish off with colorful diecut foliage and golden sequins. The only question is, will you send these sunkissed cards to your favorite folk, or be SHELLFISH and keep them?
Students are requested to bring their basic kit including all the recommended adhesives (complete list is on the righthand sidebar of the Class and Calendar pages); as well as a fine-tipped waterbrush if they have one.

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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.

We ALL love the idea of making our holiday cards during the year, but sometimes, it’s difficult to be inspired during the “off-season”, isn’t it?

Do you love the idea of making your holiday cards during the year but find it hard to get started off-season? Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club is a great solution, but it fills up quickly, and what if you can’t make it to the store one Friday night per month? Here’s a brand new alternative (because Christmas Card Club WILL be back in February!) that runs 100% on your schedule.
It’s a pre-packaged kit we’ve called Holiday Jumpstart(cute name, right?) that includes everything you need (except ink and adhesive) to complete FIVE copies of a brand new original holiday card design. This month’s edition is called “Jingle All the Way” because it’s built around Creative Expressions’ die of the same name. To illustrate, Lauren made five sample cards using five different colorways, and she’s included the recipes for those in the kit, but you can make them all the same OR rock your own favorite shades. For that matter, this design will work with ANY combination of blendable dye or hybrid inks you love; it could even be made using a single shade of ink or watercolor.
Join Elisabeth for this 3-card Birthday Card class, featuring Dare 2 B Artzy stamps and papers.

Just a reminder to our 2022 Holiday Card Swap participants, please drop off your five cards before 5pm this coming Saturday, December 3rd. We’ve got a record number of twenty-one swappers this year, and based on the three or four early-bird drop-offs we’ve seen so far, the cards are more clever and beautiful than ever. By the way, if you make an optional 6th card, we’ll be proud to display it in the store for everyone to see and admire!
PS: The cards in the photo above feature Prima Marketing’s Candy Cane Lane collection, now available in-store.
