About 2 months ago, I discovered a new scrapbooking store in my area called Anthologies. (It's actually closer to Ft. Worth, in Hurst, but a lot of the local scrapbook stores in my area have closed.) I started following their blog and reading about this class they held monthly called "Scrapstashers". The premise of this class is that you are told only a few days before what scraps and supplies you need to bring and in what sizes. You don't find out what you're putting together until you get to the store. I find it exciting to use my scraps and to not know what we're doing until we get there. It adds a mysterious element to the class. Since it takes me almost an hour to drive over to the store, I haven't done any of the other classes. If you're in the DFW area you should check them out sometime. It's a great store with a super nice staff.

Here are the projects from the February Scrapstashers class:
Isn't this little tin carrying case just darling? They called it a "chocolate survival kit" and suggested that we stuff it with chocolate. I don't need to add that tempation to my scrap space so I think I'd better leave it empty!
Supply List (all supplies Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Sending Love DSP (117153), Pretty in Pink (100459)
Ribbon: Pretty in Pink (117289), Chocolate Chip(117287), White Sheer (Michaels)
Other: Tin (Maya Road tin, the package for their chipboard shapes and letters), Buttons (Oriental Trading), Scissors, Heart Template (cut from Cricut), adhesive

Gift Bag:
I think this is a super cute bag and a great way to use up scraps. It takes a while to notice that it's just a plain brown paper bag. No one would say you're "brown baggin' it" with this cute creation. I also think it will be really easy to use this idea for any season.

  1. Very cute, Kylie! I had to look closely to see that it really was a brown bag!

    I love the quality of your work. :)
