    I had to watch you tube to figure out how to use a blog. Here I am. I love anna’s things, sooooo pretty. Learning to use is a fun journey. Keep lovely ideas coming.

    Anna and Team

    I’m thrilled to see these scrapbook layout’s as often as you can post them! Yes please, continue doing this!!

    I’m not a scrapbooker myself, have always made cards BUT I have always been inspired by the scrapbook pages from you and others.
    The paper and tools are similar so when we see a Beautiful page like this one, we can always be inspired to make a new card based on what we’ve seen here! Keep’em coming!!!
    Honesty I wish Scrapbooking was still as popular here in the States as it used to be, getting harder to find great papers and dies or tools in stores…. Thank heaven we can depend on Anna & HSN for so many products!

  3. Patricia M Gonsalves says:

    I have this kit, but haven’t started working with it. After seeing this beautiful card, I’ll be using it this weekend. Thank you Anna for all the great tips you give us.

  4. Jodine Adams says:

    Have you considered die cut envelope liners for all of your different envelope styles? It would help the envelope becomes part of the thought instead of just the vessel to deliver the card in. Also, coordinated pre-cut envelope dies into your kits I think would be abeautiful addition and finishing touch. Thank you for always considering everyone’s thoughts and ideas!

  5. LESLIE RAMSEY says:

    Beautiful as usual. Still unpacking my craft stash. I really could open my own store with everything I have. One of my nieces is getting married in January. I want to make her a scrapbook and this is GREAT inspiration.
    Happy Crafting everyone!!

  6. Jeanette Elliott says:

    Hi Anna! Great tutorial! I am just starting to make rosettes! And they are so easy! Someday I need to get into scrapbooking. Although these would make great cards also! Thank you.

  7. Carla says:

  17. Myrna Hartley says:

    Love the idea of using three rosettes more is always better.

    I would like to see more cards made with kits and other things to add to them besides what is in the kit. Thank you.

  18. Nora says:

    It’s nice to finally focus on a scrapbook page. I’m not a great fan of making cards. Could you please make some scrapbook page kits to offer us scrapbookers out here? Maybe a kit that has 2-3 (2-page layouts with materials provided) so we can intergrate your beautiful work in our scrapbooks. Just a thought!

  19. Maureen Odell says:

    Beautiful!! Thank you for another wonderful tutorial.

    I would love to see an idea for a teenage boy, or better yet, a boy scout scrapbook page. He camps, and I cannot come up with beauty in the making There has to be others with this same problem.

  20. Julianne says:

    Would love to know specifically what kind of adhesive was used to attach the rosettes to the page. I wouldn’t think a tape roller has enough to make something that thick stay put.

    Thanks much!

  21. Lillian Lumachi says:

    Love the different sized fan circles… really makes a nice impact on a page! Love it!
