The next Paper Anthology Christmas Card Club meeting will take place on Friday, March 3, 2023, from 5-9pm. We’ll be making this adorably ornament-al card featuring Sunny Studio stamps on a background of evergreens with a gorgeous gold-embossed sentiment and the perfect touch of plaid.
If you’re new to Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club, you should know that it’s our solution to the prospect of making ALL of our holiday cards in December. Instead, we start early in the year, and, at each meeting, we debut a brand new original Christmas card design. We 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. This is a fun way to enjoy a crafty night out and get a jump on holiday card production! The cost is $25, dinner is included and new members are always welcome! There’s no need to commit to every meeting, we take individual, first-come-first-served sign-ups for each meeting. But… the session always fills up FAST! So be sure to reserve your place quickly by emailing email@example.com.
Please note that while the meetings start at 5pm, you do not have to arrive by 5 – you should be able to complete all five cards, even if you can’t arrive until later. Please bring your basic kit and a little bit of holiday spirit!
February’s Holiday Jumpstart Card Kit is now available at Paper Anthology!
We ALL love the idea of making our holiday cards during the year, but sometimes, it’s difficult to be inspired during the “off-season”, isn’t it? 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 a brand new alternative (because Christmas Card Club WILL be back in early March!) that works entirely on your schedule.
The next meeting of Paper Anthology’s Christmas Card Club will take place this Friday, September 10th, from 5-9pm, see details below. We will be stenciling and ink blending to make this bold and beautiful card in traditional red and green, with plenty of fresh, bright white. There will be kits available, if you’re unable to attend; email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot or purchase your kit!
As promised, the details:
We’ll each be making five cards of one design (pictured above) featuring this lovely ornament stamp from Hero Arts and dies from Sunny Studio. The cost is $25 and includes dinner.
This in-person event is limited to sixfully vaccinated participants. To reserve your place, EMAIL email@example.com AND include a photo of your vaccination card. You’re welcome to wear a mask during class, but please be aware that your (fully vaccinated) fellow participants will not be. Please note that all Paper Anthology staff members are fully vaccinated, and are taking care to keep surfaces and hands extra clean.
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! There are stamps and dies galore, not to mention several amazing brand new paper collections. And YES… there are plenty of wonderful holiday items, because as every papercrafter knows, it’s literally NEVER too early to start making Christmas cards! (PS to our fellow Lawn Fawnatics: we’ll have the new collection in store on the day it’s released– Thursday, September 16th!)
This three card Class in a Kit is called Homespun Holidays and has a strong winter/seasonal theme, rather than focusing on a particular holiday. All of the stamping (the sentiments are Hero Arts’ Comfort and Joy Clear Stamps) and diecutting (including Sunny Studios’ Warm and Cozy set) has been done for you; and a detailed set of instructions, with individual photos of each card, is provided. You’ll need only basic cardmaking tools and a few adhesives to finish these three sweet and cozy cards. The hardest part might well be deciding which friends to send them to!
