The Anchored Scraps Correspondence Hat box (& April 2015 AnchoredScraps Recap)

Today it is a delight to share that I am now taking pre-orders for the Anchored Scraps Correspondence Hat box exclusively designed for by Scrap and Design owner Shelly Holt. 

Scrap and Design is today’s Complement Thursday providing a wonderfully creative environment for scrapbookers and card makers in the Wilmington, North Carolina and surrounding area with a variety of events, classes, and crops!

ScrapAndDesignLogoThe two boxes being shown today are the first two of eight in the suite that will be offered from which to choose – as each one is customized by theme, there is one for travel, stamps (for the new stamp collector in me), vintage, etc.

No two of them are the same as each hat box is repurposed.  These complement the box of custom AnchoredScraps handmade cards shown earlier in the month, also by Scrap and Design.  You would plan to tie your letters into bundles with grosgrain ribbons and store in your own box – it includes five grosgrain ribbons!

If you have an interest in getting in the queue please use the contact form and send a note to me.   In the next week or so these will be offered in the store but I wanted you to know about it now!


In this day of mass-produced items if you are wanting a unique gift to give yourself or to someone special then plan on five weeks from start to finish including the shipping time.   Right now if you were to get in the queue you could safely plan to have the second week of June once your order placed and confirmed. is now mobile-friendly!

When viewing this site from your smartphone it will be with the mobile version, and if you scroll to the bottom of the screen there is a link to take you to the full desktop version if you want that viewing option.
