The summer 2022 edition of the Collins Group Virtual Retailers’ Symposium is taking place this week, so stay tuned to see some of the brand new products which will be making their way to Paper Anthology this August and September. Collins always starts off with an event they call the Sample Making Frenzy, and as ever, it’s really lived up to its name. In this photo there are beautiful new items from Spellbinders, The Crafters Workshop, Lawn Fawn, Hero Arts, Dare 2B Artzy, Impression Obsession, Stampendous, Photoplay and Scrapbook Adhesives. More to come!
The first day of exciting inspiration at the Collins Show was packed full of new products, ideas and techniques. Here are a few highlights: In Altenew’s class (photo above) we used their Golden Days stamp set for all three cards; and also, on the lefthand card, a wonderful debossing cover die called Dotted Tile. Dare 2B Artzy’s class (photo below) featured their new Space Odyssey and Make Waves collections, with coordinating papers, stamps and dies.
The winter 2022 edition of the Collins Group Virtual Retailers Symposium begins today, so stay tuned all week for the latest makes and previews of items coming soon(ish) to Paper Anthology. First up, cards from the famous Sample Making Frenzy! In photo one, gorgeous florals from AlteNew. In photo two, an ocean vibe from Dare 2B Artzy, lovely lemons (on a textured background) from Spellbinders, and silhouetted drama from Hero Arts. Photo three features soft florals from Stampendous, as well as uber-cuteness and big chunky diecuts from Lawn Fawn.
Paper Anthology will be CLOSED Saturday and Sunday, September 4th and 5th, to celebrate Labor Day Weekend; so why not stop by on Thursday or Friday night (9/2 or 9/3) between 5 and 9 pm, to check out all of the fabulous new product just in from Sunny Studio, LDRS, Pinkfresh, and Dare 2B Artzy, Photoplay, Spellbinders and more! There are stamps and dies galore, not to mention several amazing brand new paper collections. And YES… there are plenty of wonderful holiday items, because as every papercrafter knows, it’s literally NEVER too early to start making Christmas cards! (PS to our fellow Lawn Fawnatics: we’ll have the new collection in store on the day it’s released– Thursday, September 16th!)
More marvelous makes from Sunday’s classes at the Collins Virtual Retailer Symposium. Above: Altenew’s Watercolor Extravaganza Stamps and Delightful Frame 3D Embossing Folder. (By the way, we just got another shipment of the amazing Altenew E/F’s in, including this one!) Below: Dare 2B Artzy always does a great job coordinating stamps, dies and papers; and coming up with new styles of card… how cool is that double pop up?!
The summer edition of the Collins Group Virtual Retailer Symposium kicks off with an event called Sample Making Frenzy which totally lives up to its name! Here’s a sneak peek of the newest products from our favorite companies, which will be arriving at Paper Anthology in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes glimpses into the show!
Would you like to meet up at Paper Anthology for a brand new, IN PERSON edition of Christmas Card Club; the first in over a year? If so, please read this post CAREFULLY to the very end, there are some new and important CoVid-related details!!!
Some things are the same as they always were: We’ll each be making five cards from one design (pictured above) featuring LDRS’ “Snow Deer to Me” stamps and dies, Dare 2B Artzy’s “Snow Much Fun” collection and a cool new technique for making “snow transparency”. The price will be $25 and includes dinner. The date will be Friday, June 25th, 5pm-9pm.
Some things are NEW… so this is the part to read carefully: We will be limiting this event to the first six fully vaccinated Paper Anthologists who reserve their spots by EMAILING firstname.lastname@example.org AND including a photo of their vaccination card. (To give everyone equal footing, ONLY email requests will be taken at this time; no phone calls, FaceBook messages, etc. for this particular event.)
BUT don’t worry: 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!
We are excited about easing back to in person events and classes, and our first priority isthe safety and peace of mind of all concerned. We will NOT be wearing masks or requiring class members to do so, but please note that all Paper Anthology staff members (Elisabeth, Shari, Betty and Lauren) are fully vaccinated and we’re still 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.
