    Anna has given us all the information we need to begin this project. I had hundreds of photos to edit from our trip which I did, made 6 DVD home videos first so they were all rather organized by dates and places. During the past week I have started the Travel Project and have completed 9 pages.

  2. Karen Eyrich (verified owner)

    Anna’s classes are so well organized. We received so much information in the pdfs she provided us. And Anna keeps on providing more! If she feels that we want more information on certain topics (like a list of fonts) she will add that to the class information. She goes deep into her organizational techniques, which really helps to make your project move faster. I love watching her videos and seeing exactly what she does. Then in the Facebook group, it’s fun to see what other people post. In the interest of full disclosure, I haven’t yet started my travel book. My trip isn’t for another 6 weeks. But I have all my folders organized and labeled, and my supplies are chosen. I know what templates I’m using, and I can get started on my album after I recover from jetlag! This class is so worth it, and the organizational techniques can be used for any album, so don’t let the words “travel project” deter you from getting this class.

  3. Kimberly Rosen (verified owner)

    I usually take Anna’s album class each year. This is the first time I have done a Travel Project. I have a hectic work schedule & life so I started out strong and then had to come back to it. But my vacation book is near done at about 60 pages. Great organization tools and practical & creative advice along the way. I also love that I can go back to the videos at any time in the future. Thank you so much for helping to make my talents seem greater than they are!

  4. Nancy Farrell (verified owner)

    After literally years of being away from scrapbooking I found this class a great way to get back to doing something I always loved. I especially appreciated that Anna gave encouragement to new scrapbookers to just finish the project but also including some more challenging techniques for the more experienced or more adventurous to try. It felt really good to scrap and finish the project.

  5. Michelle James (verified owner)

    I have taken many of Anna’s classes and was so looking forward to another edition! I’m so glad I did!! Anna is always adding new information and different ways of looking at things and creating albums. From the written content to to the classes and feedback in the dedicated Facebook group, this class is both inspiring and informative. Each class I take gets better and better. Thank you Anna, for your dedication to photos, the art and your customers!

  6. Maggie Adair (verified owner)

    As always Anna has put together a great class to help me get my photos scrapped. While this particular project is taking me longer than expected due to personal reasons, it’s great to be able to watch the replays and follow along at my own pace. Anna has done a great job is the way she has put this project together from start to finish. She gives lots of great tips and advise, and is always ready to help when we get stuck and aren’t sure what to do. Thank you so much Anna for the time and effort you take to put classes like this together for us

  7. Chris Parker (verified owner)

    Anna’s aA Travel Project is a very organized class. It was my first digital scrapbook and my first aA class and at times I felt like I was in over my head. Anna provided so much help and information thru email, handouts and resources to help me that I was able to complete my project during the 6 week class. I am very happy with the final product. It was fun to be part of the Facebook group to receive feedback on my layouts and also to see other people’s creativity and ideas. I am looking forward to trying other types of aA templates to create more albums. Thank you Anna for such a great class.

  8. Miki Krueger (verified owner)

    I’ve taken many of Anna’s classes and as always Anna has done an outstanding job in organizing materials and executing the delivery! I love the flexibility of the templates and the encouragement and support given by Anna and the Facebook group. Thank you, Anna, for the inspiration!

  9. Christine Ahearn (verified owner)

    I learnt so much from this class. I love watching the videos and the online classes were a great learning experience as you could watch Anna live and ask questions as she worked – this was so helpful. I especially appreciated when she switched from working in Photoshop to Elements (I am an Elements user) – this was great.
    Thanks so much Anna for the abundant skills and knowledge that was shared. I recommend this course.
    Note: My album isn’t finished yet and I don’t feel guilty because Anna takes a flexible approach & I am now confident in my knowledge that it will get done.

  10. Judith McEntyre (verified owner)

    A very structured, well-organized class. The PDF’s are an excellent resource while working on my project. Her preplanning was very helpful, essential to lay everything out so that you are able to stay organized. All of this will be of great assistance in future projects. This is a class that will keep on guiding in my future endeavors.

  11. Helen Maddix (verified owner)

    Anna is a great designer, and showed how to use her designs to tell my stories. She goes out of her way to answer any questions that come up, and makes helpful suggestions to assist us in creating our pages. I enjoyed the Travel Project 2022 and have continued to purchase other products from Anna’s O Scraps store.
