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 5.25 x 4″ pierced cardstock background panels with assorted washi tape accent strips;
Five pre-cut sheet music ovals with gold cardstock oval mats;
Five pre-cut “Noel” sentiments;
Five deep evergreen and five pale juniper branches;
Five white half-pearl accents
Complete, detailed instructions and large full color photo

Two wonderful classes with Pinkfresh Studio, hint at just a few of their newest items. Everything in these two photos, will be coming to Paper Anthology this spring. Especially love this geometric hot foil plate and stencil set (above) which works for absolutely any occasion, in any color palette! Soft florals and useful sentiments were the focus of the second class; that fun little envelope and the nested frame dies with a pierced edge are also favorites that will see plenty of use!
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!
