Ok, no, sorry… we actually have NO idea! But if your friends are papercrafters, we’re entirely confident that they’ll LOVE getting a Paper Anthology Gift Card! Paper Anthology Gift Cards are hand stamped, available in ANY denomination, never expire, and can be used to purchase any combination of stamps, inks, dies, tools, papers, stickers, potions, powders, adhesives and more!
To make a gift card even more special, you can put it in a Paper Anthology 5×7 Zippered Canvas Pouch, and have enough room leftover for a few Distress Mini Ink Pads, Stickles, colorful pens, adorable washi tape, maybe even a mini stamp set? And don’t forget to include your own beautiful handmade card, which is obviously the thing your crafty recipient will love most! Stop by the store to purchase gift cards or call us at (973) 927-1210.
PS: If YOU are the Crafty One who’d love to get a Paper Anthology giftcard for Hanukkah or Christmas, feel free to forward this to your friends and family and we’ll be happy to hook them up! ;)

October’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit is our pre-packaged kit that includes everything you need (except adhesives) to complete FIVE copies of this new original holiday Shaker Card design. It’s called “Festive Fir” since it includes the lovely Taylored Expressions die of the same name. This kit is available in-store and online for $41. Locals, be sure to choose the “PICK UP IN STORE” option at checkout to save on shipping and we’ll keep it behind the counter until you’ve got time to pick it up.
We all adore the IDEA of making holiday cards throughout the year, instead being overloaded in November and December, but 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 a self-paced option that works entirely on your schedule.
This pre-packaged kit features Taylored Expressions’ Festive Fir die, used to create the decorative window which gets filled with Hero Arts Green Ombre sequins to act as the shaker filling. The elegant filigree background panel coordinates beautifully with the streamlined tree, which is backed with sage green non-shed glitter paper for extra sparkle. The kit contains everything you need (except adhesives) to complete five shaker cards, including complete written instructions and a nice big photo for reference.
This kit contains:
Taylored Expressions’ Festive Fir die
Five Carta Bella green filigree patterned paper panels
Five ivory cardstock panels
Five sage green glitter paper panels
Five acrylic window pieces
Enough sheer gold ribbon for five cards
Five gold stars and enough gold ornaments for five trees
August’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit is our pre-packaged kit that includes everything you need (except ink and adhesives) to complete FIVE copies of this new original holiday card design. It’s called “Bells Are Ringing” and includes Honey Bee’s Layering Holiday Bells die set, which we think you’ll get plenty of use out of in future holiday cardmaking! Kits are available in-store and online for $38. Locals, be sure to choose the “PICK UP IN STORE” option at checkout to save on shipping.
Everyone probably loves the IDEA of making holiday cards throughout the year, instead being overloaded in November and December, 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.
This kit contains:
Honey Bee’s Layering Holiday Bells die set;
Enough light pink, dark pink, silver, gold and white glitter cardstock to make five pairs of layered bell diecuts with bow accents;
Five A2 white card bases;

Five pre-cut sheet music ovals with gold cardstock oval mats;

Paper Anthology will be closed Saturday, September 3rd through Monday, September 5th in observance of Labor Day. You can shop during regular hours on Thursday and Friday evenings, September 1st and 2nd, from 5-9pm and all day (10am to 5pm) on Tuesday, September 6th. Wishing you a safe, happy and creative holiday weekend!
This three card Class in a Kit is called Homespun Holidays and has a strong winter/seasonal theme, rather than focusing on a particular holiday. All of the stamping (the sentiments are Hero Arts’ Comfort and Joy Clear Stamps) and diecutting (including Sunny Studios’ Warm and Cozy set) has been done for you; and a detailed set of instructions, with individual photos of each card, is provided. You’ll need only basic cardmaking tools and a few adhesives to finish these three sweet and cozy cards. The hardest part might well be deciding which friends to send them to!
