  1. Beautyful Projects!!!
    I like your style.

    greetings from Germany

  2. Everything you make is very special

  3. Anne! Thank you so very much, for sharing your tutorials.

    Honestly, I enjoy looking at everyone's ideas and tutorials, but I seem to LEARN mostly from you. You basically show us why we need to do what we need to do so our projects will fold and lay right. Too many people don't show us why and we end up messing up and ruining paper. Thank you for being so thorough when teaching. I also have learned a lot about putting my ideas into work because of how you have taught me. Many thanks are just not enough.

    I have learned so very much from you that I am not at all ashamed of showing my work. I'm getting the confidence to start selling some of my work because of you. I'm actually starting a blog soon so I can start sharing my projects, family, and my life. I owe this to you so thank you. You have motivated me to really want to do it.

    I love the size of this album. It's so simple yet interactive and of course with the G45 paper its gorgeous. Thank you once again for teaching a new method. You are very kind and generous.

  4. Hi Anne, another stunning creation from you and I agree totally with denverkat. I have also learned more than I can explain from you. I feel I have been propelled from clumsy beginner to (nearly!) expert beginner and my confidence also has grown and it is truly thanks to you!!
    Please know that you teach in a special and unique way which is making a difference to people's crafting lives. I thank you with the whole of my heart!!
    Hugs Annie
