December Christmas Card Club

The last CCC of 2021 will meet on Friday, December 10th, from 5-9pm. We’ll be making this beautiful botanical card, with a heat-embossed woodgrain background, that’s painted with Indigo Blu’s Luscious Pigment Powder! Penny Black’s Bountiful Berries, Joy (technically it’s called “MIrthful”) and Pines Dies, a pretty border from Tim Holtz’s Ornate Trims Cling Stamp Set, and Glossy Accents on the berries add even more texture and interest. Each participant will make five cards of this design and dinner is included. Cost is $25. Please email elisabeth@paperanthology.com to reserve your place.

PS: The Christmas Card Swap deadline is upon us, so if you have not yet dropped off your cards, please do so ASAP!

Christmas in July

This edition of the Collins Show is absolutely loaded with beautiful holiday items, many of which will be making their way to Paper Anthology! Day Two finished off with classes from Avery Elle… who are rockin’ CAS Christmas in a big, big way; and Hero Arts whose holiday ornaments stamps, stencils and dies coordinate beautifully. PS: Really loving Hero’s Ornament Looking Glass die set, which lets you cut and layer three levels of windows to make the easiest diorama ever (pictured on the kraft card, below)!
