Join Elisabeth for this fall festival of cards, chock full of the colors and sights of autumn! First, we’ll create beautiful vellum leaves with Hero Arts dies and an amazing stamped wood background. We’ll move on to a shaker card featuring a Memory Box die and a Hero Arts background stamp, and finally a gorgeous fall tree line, courtesy of Penny Black, a MISTI and a clever multiple-impression stamping technique you will love learning… and use ever after! Sentiments from Hero Arts, as well as embellishments from Buttons Galore and more will be used for the finishing touches.
Please bring your basic class kit with all the usual adhesives, as well as a watercolor brush. Email email@example.com to reserve your spot! Cost is $24 payable by cash or check only.
Join Lauren for a three-card class featuring bold blossoms from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Inspired by Carta Bella’s Farmhouse Summer collection, the color palette splits the difference between Summer and Autumn, and the Altenew Painted Encouragement Sentiments make these all-occasion cards super-sendable! We’ll stamp the blooms on patterned paper, add a little shading with Tombows, fussy-cut, add Penny Black foliage accents, et voila!
Please bring your basic kit with all the usual adhesives, your favorite fussy-cutting scissors, and… if you’re “of a certain age“… your best pair of readers! Dates available: Monday, September 11th, 11 am – 2 pm; Friday, October 13th, 6 pm – 9 pm; Saturday, October 28th, 12 pm – 3 pm. Cost is $24 and payable by cash or check only.

Don’t we ALL love the idea of making our holiday cards throughout the year, instead of 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.
Our pre-packaged Holiday Jumpstartkits (cute name, right?) include everything you need (except adhesives) to complete FIVE copies of a brand new original holiday card design. This month’s edition is called “Very Merry” and we think it lives up to its name.
This kit contains:
Five A2 white top-fold card bases;
Five pre-cut white lattice panels;
Five 3 x 4″ red patterned paper panels;
Five 3.25 x 4.25″ goldenrod mats;
Five pre-cut sets of five-layer poinsettias
Five pre-cut sets of two-layer poinsettia centers;
Five pre-cut holly leaves;
Five pre-cut “MERRY” sentiments in both goldenrod and pomegranate;
Fifteen scarlet Spellbinders sequins;
Enough white seambinding to wrap around and tie bows on five card fronts
These kits are now available in-store and online at Paper Anthology. If YOU could use like a Holiday Jumpstart, we hope you’ll check them out!
This gorgeous card will be our FREE Make and Take at Paper Anthology, this coming Saturday, March 11, 2023. Stop by any time during opening hours (10am to 5pm) and learn how to blend Tombow Dual Brush Pens directly on Penny Black’s beautiful “The Unfolding” stamp, add a Hero Arts sentiment, and set the whole thing off with Honey Bee’s brand new Wood Frame Builder… a super-cool die set we can’t wait to show off.
Bag ladies, be sure to bring your bags for double punches. Not a Bag Lady? Purchase one of our stylish and practical Paper Anthology Bag Lady Jute Totes and you’re automatically qualified!
It’ll be a few months before there are flowers in our gardens, so in the meantime, join Lauren for this “One Stamp Set, Three Ways” class. We’ll combine the beautiful blooms of Altenew’s Paint-a-Flower Sweet Pea stamp set with Spellbinders’ Simply Perfect Mix and Match Sentiments dies and assorted Penny Black foliage. We’ll do some traditional coloring, some selective coloring and a bit of paper-piecing; not to mention pressure embossing (with metallic rub-on accents), a smidge of stenciling and fair amount of (easy!) fussy-cutting. Please bring your basic kit with all the usual adhesives, and your favorite pair of scissors.
Dates available: MLK Monday, 1/16/23 from 11am to 2pm; Friday, 1/27/23 from 6-9pm and Saturday, 2/11/23 from 12-3pm. Cost is $24. Please email email@example.com to reserve your place!
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.)
Join Elisabeth for your choice of two different four-card classes, featuring Penny Black’s newest release: “Masterpieces Made Simple”, a set of gorgeous images printed on premium cardstock. Choose from “Snowfall Serenity” (photo above) or “Pinecones and Peace” (photo below). Similar to the Penny Black sticker classes from years past, all the images come fully colored, they’re ready to add to your card and embellish. They make a striking, quick and easy card, but it looks like you fussed over it for hours! Please note that spots for this class are very limited, so email email@example.com ASAP to reserve your place!
A Penny Black Christmas I: Snowfall Serenity (cards pictured above) Dates available: Thursday, October 28th from 6 to 9 pm; or Saturday, November 13th from 12 to 3 pm.
A Penny Black Christmas II: Pinecones And Peace (cards pictured below) Dates Available: Thursday, November 4th from 6 to 9 pm; or Saturday, December 4th from 12 to 3 pm.

Why: Because making holiday cards in December, all by yourself, is so much less fun!
Please read all the details, below:
We’ll each be making five cards of one design (pictured above) featuring Hero Arts’ “Holly Berries” stamps and dies from the new ShopBox release; and Penny Black’s awesome “Stitches of Love” dies. The price will be $25 and includes dinner.
