    I’ve taken many of Anna’s classes and never fail to learn something new. For this class, I learned new ways to incorporate meaningful objects into my pages. Learning how to properly scan or photograph objects was so helpful. Anna explains and demonstrates how to blend them into a beautiful page.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Super grateful for the review Deb. Thank you.

    Have always wanted to know how to do my own elements and the method here where I need not do a selection made the purchase worth every cent.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Excellent. So happy to help Joan.

    This was a great course. I am doing a heritage album and I’ve had fun scanning and photographing lots of very old items to put on the pages and learning how to work with them on the pages. Thanks for this course.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Thanks for the feedback and happy you are enjoying the class.

    About 20 years ago I started traditional scrapbooking following a trip to Japan. They have such amazing paper and collectables. But after learning to use Photoshop and following Ana’s artsy methods for the past 12 years I will never look back. She makes us all so much better with a few simple strokes and ideas. This class is no exception!

    • Anna Aspnes

      Thank you so much Lynn. It’s a joy to share my passion with you.

    I really enjoyed this class and found it very helpful. I want to add more personalization to my pages by including things other than photos and the class gave me a lot to consider. The dpi and image size information was really helpful so now I understand how that works and how it will impact how I use the items scanned. I plan on running through it again soon to make sure I caught it all.
    You also gave me some ideas that I hadn’t even thought of. Thank You!

    • Anna Aspnes

      Thank you so much Ramona! I am ALL about providing new ideas 🙂
