    January 10th I should be out of California by then. Looking for my new home in Tennessee. We will be living in our travel trailer then, but I already have my box at a UPS store so I will have a place to get my mail and packages. We’ll be retired then so I should be able to watch ALL the shows on my tablet or computer. WOO HOO!!! Happy Crafting!

    I love this card, and I love my Christmas dies and stamps, They provide the finishing touch to all my Anna inspired cards. I use the Christmas greetings stamps for the inside of my cards. When will you be back on HSN?

    Absolutely stunning card! The Nordic Snowflake or the one shown in the picture with the machine…is that a sneaky peek at a new embossing folder? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it before….looks like there’s two different one, the embossed paper and the folder…is this new or old? Love this tutorial too.

    Hi Anna! I love these little tag dies & stamps. I have the regular set and the Christmas set. I have a craft drawer at work and I make these up on my lunch hour. You just can’t have too many.

    Hi Anna, I am 68 years old and still making cards. Your designs are the prettiest that I have ever seen! I have purchased 4 kits of your cards and family and friends can’ t say enough wonderful things about them! Since I have retired my income has dropped drastically and I can no longer afford to purchase more. I just want you to know how much happiness that you have brought to my family and friends. Thank you so very much! XOXOXO Jeanne Smith

  26. Evelyn Brantley says:

    Good afternoon. These cards are beautiful but unfortunately I do not have all of the tools to make them. Would you please do more card kits without the dies. I already have most if not all of the ones that you offer on HSN. I am slowly and surely building up my cardmaking craft supplies, but I am not there yet. Thank you.
