A Few of the Highlights…

…from Monday’s classes at The Collins Virtual Trade Show. Amazing new dies from Spellbinders, plus some excellent techniques for using inks with diecuts.

HOW CUTE are those cookies?! (Sugar free and very High Fiber lol!) The box die can be used with or without the window and is sized perfectly for a gift card.

Some amazing new slim line products will be coming from Spellbinders, as well.

As always, Lawn Fawn are unbeatable for both adorable characters AND their easy-to-use mechanicals! Some super sweet new sets on the way to support your existing Shutter Card, Slider and Magic Iris sets!

Take and Make Saturday!

Yes! You read that right! It’s Paper Anthology’s first Take and Make Saturday, this Saturday, October 3rd, 10-5. What’s a Take and Make? Well, it’s like a Make and Take, in that all of the parts and pieces are ready for you to assemble into an awesome card; but instead of doing that at the store, using shared supplies, you’ll take all the bits and pieces (plus complete instructions, of course) home and finish the card at your leisure. Thus: Take… and Make! This one features Blended Distress Inks in beautiful autumnal shades, over an amazingly textured background made with a terrific Spellbinders’ Cut and Emboss folder called “Delhi“. ps: Bag Ladies get double punches; all Sizzix dies are still 25% off and there is more new product in the store than we could list in one post, so c’mon In this Saturday!!!
