  14. Hi Anne. I watched 8 parts of your videos toady and enjoyed them so much. I will finish watching the rest tomorrow. I so love how you do all the fussy cutting. So now my task is to cut out all kinds of things from my Steampunk Spells papers. I may have some questions along the way as I try some of your techniques. Love the sliding page. And the flip balloon tag. Love it, love it, love it. thanks as always for sharing.

  15. Hi Anne. I looked all over for the envelopes you used in your mini album and I can't find any. Could you please tell me the measurements so I can make my own tubes? I have all the papers, just need the tubes to be able to start my album. thanks so much.
