Sign Up Deadline: 3pm TODAY!

It’s the FINAL DAY to sign up for Spellbinders’ Pressed Posies BetterPress Online Class! If you’d like to participate, click the bold text to purchase the class kit OR email elisabeth@paperanthology.com by 3pm today, Monday, November 27th; after that, enrollment will be closed.

Complete details are below (and in the Spellbinders video which we posted HERE!) but the most important things to know are: the class will take place ONLINE via private FaceBook Group on January 12, 2024 at 4pm Pacific Time (that’s 7pm here in the East) and you must reserve your spot no later than tomorrow, November 26, 2023.

The Spellbinders’ BetterPress System is simple (and fun!) to use, but there are tons of wonderful techniques and tips that the makers of this system are excited to share as you create together in this class. Perfect for both a crafting newbie or a BetterPress fanatic, you will love creating these beautiful BetterPress cards and learning how to combine BetterPress products with Spellbinders’ new Sealed Collection of wax, seals and coordinating dies.

Note that you’ll be taking this class online at home, so you’ll need to have the BetterPress Letterpress System by Spellbinders as well as the exclusive Class Kit, which is included in the price of the class and will arrive at Paper Anthology in early December with plenty of time for us to ship to you OR for local customers to pick up. You’ll also need a computer with internet access; after sign-up you’ll be given a password for the class’ private FaceBook Group. Note that the class will be archived so that you can watch it later, if the original timeframe doesn’t work for you; or watch it again to review any of the techniques. The class is expected to take approximately two hours.

The cost is $55 and includes some truly lovely new products from Spellbinders, which you’ll receive before they are released to the public! Paper Anthology already has in-stock the Spellbinders “Sealed” Starter Kit, which is optional for the class, though if you do not currently have a way to melt wax beads, it’s a nice set that will make the process even easier! Our stock of lovely new Spellbinders’ Sealed Collection of seals, wax beads, and accessories is now available online and in-store as well.

You can also purchase two exclusive (optional!) Add-Ons which coordinate with the products used in The Class Kit: these consist of the Cosmos Add-On Bundle and the Gold Sparkle Add-on Bundle both of which are pictured below.

Introducing: SEALED by Spellbinders

A beautiful new collection of easy-to-use sealing wax, seals and dies for those who love creating handmade cards, envelopes, and invitations with extra flair. Add a classic touch of wax seal-inspired designs to embellish your cardmaking creations. There will, of course, be classes coming along featuring these fun and fabulous new products, but we couldn’t wait to show you the collection… be sure to scroll down to see the first card made by Elisabeth, who is now thoroughly hooked on this process; there really is something magical about the “smoosh” of the seal hitting the hot wax… just sayin’…

Stay tuned for details about an awesome Spellbinders’ Online Class that combines the Sealed Collection with the Better Press… you will be very impressed (sorry, Lauren can never resist a pun!) by how exponentially more wonderful these two concepts are together!
