New Favorite


This line is designed by one of my new favorite paper goods designers, 1canoe2. I have one of their planners and I love it! I have an order of some of their paper goods- cards, notebooks, prints which should be at the store shortly. They recently teamed up with American Crafts to produce their first paper crafting line and you will love it.

This Webster's traveler's notebook goes great with the Hazelwood line.

The first of the 2017 show lines will be here late tomorrow. It is American Crafts so lots of your favorite brands. New lines should be ready to go home with you on Saturday! In the meantime, Christmas will be 40% off until all the new arrives.
Still room in this cute felt Valentine's project. Vintage felt heart/banner is tomorrow evening at 5:30. Come start the year off on a creative foot with the art goddess, Jackie. Cost is $45 and includes all supplies. To register, call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389.

Stephanie Ackerman Here in March-yipee!!

I am thrilled to announce that one of our very, very favorite teachers is making the trip to Paper Crown in March to spend a relaxing and creative weekend with us! We love just hanging out with Stephanie and are excited to have her here on Friday, March 17th (St. Patrick's Day- we are the lucky ones!) & Saturday, March 18th.


Creative Beautiful Mess Mixed Media
Wooden Tag & Heart Workshop 
Created and taught by Stephanie Ackerman
Friday, March 17th

A brand new Mixed Media workshop where we tear, collage, ink, glue, paint and layer bits and pieces of this and that onto wooden tags that will tell little stories about our lives, our prayers, our wishes and our dreams.


Student's Supply List:

·        Craft Mat (optional)

·        Heat Dryer

·        Favorite Washi Tapes

      ·        Ranger Glue & Seal or Multi Medium Matte, Liqutex Medium, any brand is fine

·        Favorite Ephemera, papers, ledger paper, etc.


Mixed & Stitched
Saturday, March 18th
created and taught by Stephanie
cost includes a $10 credit to use at Paper Crown 

When you leave perfection and hesitation at the door and come in with an open heart and mind to create something without measuring, planning, placing or coordinating, something amazing happens.   You relax and enjoy the process…that is, until you poke your finger with a needle. 
I am excited to not only teach you to look at fabrics and felts a little differently, I am excited to sit and create right alongside you.  Join me for an entire day of simple stitching, collaging felts and fabrics together, scrap swapping, lunch and finger poking at some point.
The most difficult part of this new day long Mixed & Stitched Workshop is dividing the floss into strands and threading the dang needle, I promise.
The workshop includes the following supplies:
·        Four 6” x 8 ½” fabric/felt pages in assorted colors
·        One 7” x 9” Kraft Binder
·        Assorted colors of embroidery floss
·        needles
·        A buffet of wool felt and patterned fabrics to share and tear
·        $10.00 Paper Crown Dollars towards your purchase of felt and/or fabric
Student's Supply List: 
·        Pins
·        Glasses to be able to see threading a needle
·        Scraps to swap
·        Scissors
·        Any favorite stitching supplies
·        Snacks because snacks are always needed when creating.

To sign up for either or both of Stephanie's classes, call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389 with your credit card. As with all out of town teachers, we have a no cancellation policy so please check your calendars carefully before signing up. In the past Stephanie's classes have filled up very quickly so be warned : ) We hope to see you at one of our favorite weekends of the year! If you have never taken a class from Stephanie, you are in for a treat!






Getting Back to Normal...

Looks like this week the holidays and weather will cooperate and we can finally start getting back to normal. The sticky notes are slowly being removed, we have our first gorgeous class of 2017 and all the pinks and reds for Valentine's Day are really brightening the store on this dreary day.

January and February classes are on line and sign ups open. In addition, special guest artist Colleen Moody's sign up for her February class is open and I will open sign ups for March's guest artist, Stephanie Ackerman in a separate post later today.

 Join us for the first Paper Crown class of 2017 this Thursday, Jan. 19th from 5:30-8:30.

Colleen Moody will be here Sunday, February 26th to teach her doll making techniques with this lovely project entitled, Springtime Pleasure.

Open Today from Noon-4

Ice Storm not as bad as they thought so we will be open today at noon. Come check out the new classes and the Valentine goodies.

Friday, January 13, 2017

Closed today and probably tomorrow- 1/13/17 & 1/14/17

I have gone back and forth this am but have decided to close today and if the massive ice storm hits later as predicted, tomorrow also. In reality I have decided to enjoy my electricity while I can- my electricity always goes out and the record is a whooping 15 days! I REALLY don't want to do that again. I have tons of catalogs so will spend the day ordering for the store.

I hope you all enjoy your day at home and hopefully you are creating. Send me a picture of what you created this weekend, I think that would make a fun blog posting for next week. The class schedule for January & February is up, in addition to our special guest artist in February, Colleen Moody.
This fun vintage heart pillow class is next Thursday evening, Jan. 19th at 5:30. The perfect project for a winter evening.
Springtime Pleasure taught by Colleen Moody on Sunday, February 26th.To sign up for classes,
 call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389.

 And to brighten your day, can you guess who will be coming in March from this pic?

Stay Safe and Warm and Send Me Pictures of your Ice Storm Projects : )

Valentine's Is In

Love replacing all those little sticky notes with the pinks and reds for Valentine's. We are slowly getting back to normal. Lots of new lines are already in and the sale tables have been replenished. For the time being, all Christmas is 40% off so it's a great time to stock up.

January and February class sign ups have opened in addition to Colleen Moody's February class.
Stay warm and safe! and

It's that time of year- if the public schools are closed, chances are good that Paper Crown will be also. If in doubt please call first.
