  3. Oh my giddy aunt that is awesome x

  4. Oh my goodness, this is beautiful . . . I love that it can be displayed. x Cynthia

  5. That is incredible Anne - what an imagination you have! A vast surface area to work with - like a treasure hunt finding all the page openings and hidden tags yet so compact when closed up. You must have infinite patience yet work very quickly to produce the likes of this.

    So much dimension - it's a structure, work of art and sculpture all rolled into one. Stunning - thank you Anne.


  6. Anne, you're such an artist! Living in Germany I just discovered scrapbooking, mini-album-making and all that stuff only 2 months ago. Soon I saw my first video of you and was stunned. Simply stunned.
    Especially *your* books and objects have opened up a whole new world to me. A world full of stories behind stories behind stories - for in that way I do see these albums of yours: doors behind doors behind doors and just round the corner another riddle or secret. It's magical. And I just love the way you tell all these stories.

    Only today in the morning I learned so much from your tutorial about paper tiles - you're not only a marvelous artist but also a gifted teacher.
    Thank you so much for all that you create and share with us. I hope, that all the joy you're spreading comes back to your heart redoubled.


  7. This box is just stunning! I cannot believe all the pages and the way all the things open and close. Simply amazing. Would love to see how you created the pages also.

  8. Helt fantastisk, ser og ser, blir helt stum. Du får alt så flott. Denne var fantastisk. Jeg får så mye inspirasjon av bloggen din, tusen takk Anne.

  9. Hi Anne....have just come across this tutorial now....this is a absolutely stunning!!

  10. Anne, it is always a lovely visit to come to your pages. This is such a marvelous project you did here. Time consuming for certain but beautiful. Beautiful seems such an insignificant word to describe what you create.

  11. Hi Anne! Your works of art never cease to amaze me! I have re-created many of your albums and I just want to thank you very much for your generosity in filming/teaching us how you create your truly amazing projects!
    This is one project I would love to re-create as well...need about a month to do it! Thank you ever so much for all your patience and imagination as you continue to bless us with your creations.
