This collection includes: Lily of the Valley, Bee Florals Window and Daffodil Fancy Dies; Poppy Field and Burlap 6×6 Bold Prints Stamps; Looking Glass Greenhouse Die Set; Color Layering Wonderful Day and Bee Floral Stencil Sets; Honeycomb Hot Foil Plate; Bees & Florals Rub-on Decals; Friendly Messages, Wisteria HeroScapes and Wonderful Day Stamp and Die Bundles. Scroll through these lovely images from Hero Arts, but really… you should stop by Paper Anthology and see these sets in person!
A reminder that we’ll be closing today at 3pm (Tuesday 1/2/23) but after this, barring unforeseen incidents or bad weather, we’ll be back to regular store hours: Mondays 10-2; Tuesdays 10-5; Thursday and Friday Evenings from 5-9pm and Saturdays 10-5. We look forward to seeing you!
Join Elisabeth for another edition of Christmas Card Club! The card is inspired by a birthday card Elisabeth received from Beverly Rowan – a super-sophisticated, yet fantastically simple stand-up card that folds flat to fit in an A2 envelope. Lawn Fawn stamps and dies from Hero Arts and Penny Black are featured.
This edition will take place on Friday, October 28th, from 5 – 9 pm. Cost is $26 and includes dinner. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place. Participants are requested to bring their basic kit and a little bit of holiday spirit! All the paper, embellishments and supplies you’ll need to make five cards of this design will be prepared; all you have to do is show up and assemble them. It’s a fun way to enjoy a crafty night out and get a jump on holiday card production. New members are always welcome, but space is limited, so email Elisabeth today!
(Please note that while the meeting starts at 5pm, you do not have to arrive by 5pm – you should be able to complete all five cards, even if you can’t arrive until later.)
In addition, we’ve got three beautiful new paper collections from Photoplay: Beach Vibes, Fright Night and Thankful, perfect for your seasonal summer, autumn and Halloween themed projects.
There’s also lots of amazing new stuff from Hero Arts coming soon… maybe even available in-store today! The best way to see EVERYTHING is to stop by Paper Anthology, but if you can’t get there today, click this link to see all the latest items in our New in Store category!
Friday, August 5th is the next date for Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club. We’ll meet from 5-9pm* and dinner is included for the price of $25. We’ll each make five copies of this lovely card featuring Hero Arts’ Holiday Candle Arrangement and Champagne Stardust Butter from The Crafter’s Workshop. We’ll stamp, emboss, mask, splatter, watercolor and do a bit of ink blending; and at the end we’ll be five cards closer to finishing off that holiday card list! Please email email@example.com to reserve your spot and plan to bring your basic kit and a little bit of holiday spirit!
*Please note that while the meeting starts at 5pm, you do not have to arrive by 5 – you should be able to complete all 5 cards, even if you can’t arrive until later.
Lots of seasonal inspiration from the second day of classes at the Collins Show. Spellbinders (above) has outdone themselves once more, with a collection of dies, embossing folders and sentiments that will be as beautiful and useful in years to come as they are right now. Hero Arts (below) has some utterly gorgeous layered stamping, diecuts and cool techniques! And of course Lawn Fawn’s “APPLE-SOLUTELY” adorable cadre of mice (bottom photo) are warming up to do some harvesting and baking this autumn, followed by “SNOW MUCH FUN” when winter rolls around. Items from the show will start arriving at the beginning of August, so stay tuned for updates!
