Join Elisabeth on May 12th for another edition of Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club: This sophisticated slimline card is brought to you by Impression Obsession– a beautiful serene image of a cottage in a snow-filled forest, softly watercolored and shimmering with fresh fallen snow (you can’t tell in the photo, but there’s sparkly glitter all over!)
Christmas Card Club is the perfect solution for those of us who dread the prospect of mass-producing dozens of holiday cards in December! At each meeting, we’ll debut a brand new original holiday card design and pull together all the paper, embellishments and supplies you’ll need to make five cards of that design; all you have to do is show up and assemble them. A fun way to enjoy a crafty night out and get a jump on holiday card production… and dinner is included! New members are always welcome, but each date fills up FAST, so don’t hesitate. Please note that while the meeting starts at 5pm, you do not have to arrive by 5 – you should be able to complete all 5 cards, even if you can’t arrive until later.
Cost is $25 and includes dinner. Email email@example.com today to reserve your place. Please bring your basic kit and a little holiday spirit!
Join Elisabeth for a quick and easy Seasonal Slimline Stencil class, featuring beautiful stencils and assorted fun mediums from The Crafter’s Workshop! These cards provide a big impact with little effort, just the ticket for last minute holiday cards!

The Collins Virtual Show continues at a lightning pace! In addition to all of the awesome classes and Make & Takes there’s an event called “Sample Making Frenzy” which absolutely lives up to its name. Plus there are MANY orders being written up for brand new products that will start shipping at the end of February and continue rolling in to the store throughout March and April. LDRS is strong with products for both A2 cards and slimline; in fact many of their designs work beautifully for BOTH. Gorgeous florals, handwritten sentiments, cute characters and amazing dies… every element in this photo will be coming to Paper Anthology this Spring, so stay tuned!
…to more great new products which will be arriving at Paper Anthology this Spring! A few especially exciting Tuesday classes at the Collins Virtual Retailers Symposium featured great Easter/Spring dies from Impression Obsession; not to mention additional slimline stamps and dies to coordinate with the landscape elements we all fell in love with this past autumn. (Hint: look at the grass on the “Hello Spring” card!)
Dare 2B Artzy always has some clever-but-easy ideas for cards that fold in interesting ways and they did not disappoint. They were strong with patterned paper, stamps and dies which all work together… (Did you know that the elements on their patterned paper are sized to work with their dies from the same release?!) …and once again they’re leaders when it comes to innovative slimline products.
Impression Obsession has always been a well-loved brand at Paper Anthology, but this season they’ve really outdone themselves. Of course there are some terrific single stamps (like Mountain View, featured in the card above) and a line of autumn and winter Serendipity Stamps that will be lots of fun to color. But today’s post focuses on IO’s unique and innovative line of Slimline-sized stamps with nature-inspired designs that can be used on their own or combined to make beautiful scenes.

How amazingly dramatic are these slimline cards by Gail Paradise? She says they were super easy, too. She swiped Gina K Neon Inks across white cardstock with Sponge Daubers; then used a stencil over that with black ink. Super easy and so striking!
