CCC: October Edition

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 elisabeth@paperanthology.com 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.)

How Do Lawn Fawnatics Celebrate Fall?

With beautiful new Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, paper pads, stencils and more, of course! Check out all the newest Lawn Fawn by clicking THIS LINK! There are general autumnal items like the Giant Happy Fall Die (shown above), Simply Fall Sentiments, Magic Iris Sunflower Add-On Die Set (which works with or without making a Magic Iris card, as you can see from the samples on the item page!); and the Build-a-Barrel Apple set.

Then there’s loads of great Halloween stuff like the Giant Trick or Treat Die (see below), FANG-tastically adorable Bats, and a wonderful Nighttime Sky Stencil that can obviously be used all year long, but seems PERFECT for Halloween!

If you’re thinking ahead to December there are wonderful Winter and Christmas items like the adorable Build-a-Snowman Die Set, the fab new Knit Picky Winter Paper Line (in single 12×12 sheets or 6″ Petite Paper Packs); plus we’ve got a super-cool Giant Happy Hanukkah Die and Let It Shine Starry Skies Papers.

You should probably stop in to see everything and check out all the gorgeous samples, but all of these items and more are LIVE in the online store. Locals, remember you can order online and choose “In-Store Pickup” to avoid paying for shipping!

Happy (Crafty!) Holidays

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!
