One of my favorite places to go for creative inspiration is the fanciful store Anthropologie. In this class we'll take a shopping bag from the store and transform it into a really cool mini album full of interactive pages where you can tuck your favorite inspirational pictures and quotes or just any fun things you want to preserve. Using the new Stella and Rose collection from My Mind's Eye and products from American Crafts, October Afternoon, and 7gypsies, we'll create a sweet one of a kind album. You'll love the variety of page sizes, envelopes, transparencies, and page protectors that make your album itself inspirational! (If you taken the past two versions of the Anthropologie class, this album uses the bag in a new way and has new ideas inside!)

Supplies to bring to class: 12" paper trimmer, scissors, dry tape runner adhesive tacky tape, Bone folder or other scoring tool, Tiny Attacher or other stapler. Optional: 7gypsies Binderie Punch

Sun. May 15th, 3:30-5:30, "Smitten Journal", $35
