  1. SLacy

    I loved this class! After fumbling around for years in PS trying to learn how to make my own layer styles, Anna’s instructions and videos are just what I needed. Plus, learning all about PS Shapes and Repetition was a huge bonus, and opens up a whole new world for my journey in digital scrapbooking. Thank you, Anna! This class is a definite must!

    This is a wonderful class that presents the skills and tools that I often overlook using in my digital artwork. Anna’s clear instruction & written notes for the PS Elements platform are perfect for following along with the class. Recreating the example digital scrap page is made easy with inclusion of the exact design elements used in the class too. This is a class full of ideas I will definitely replay and use in my future digital projects.
