  1. Anne, once again, thank you so, so much for sharing this wonderful project. I have a question: I can only work with black cardstock in the A4 format (21 x 30 cm), so I will have to make adjustments for the pages. Do I really need the 12x12 inch cardstock for other parts in the album?

  2. I adore this Halloween project! The details, etc. Simply gorgeous! I would like to get that Spiderweb die. I think you mention that it came from Diamond Dies. I did a web search and could not find it. Could you give me the link or the website for the retailer? I'd really appreciate it.

    1. I think they spell it Die-Mond Dies, or something close to that. Hope that helps.

  3. Hi Anne, I love your projects and wonder where I could purchase the Fancy paint sharp tape? you mentioned in the video, I have googled it and nothing is coming up. Many thanks for all your help.
