    The most brilliant compilation and balance of learning-watching-doing approach I have encountered yet on digital photo compositing. Anna gently leads and guides you through the maze of artistic products, tools and techniques to create beautiful and unique presentations of your photo memories. This multi-faceted course built a strong foundation for continuing my journey in digital artistry and ignited a renewed passion for learning more from Anna and her design team.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Wow! Thank you Pat – So happy you enjoyed your first experience with us.

    The 2019 Project was the 4th one I’ve taken with Anna, and every year I learn more. Anna shares her excellent organizational process which is key to getting we students ready for the creative journey…creating our pages, with the end result, having completed pages to print in photo book format. With the online FB group available, as well as weekly videos that includes a ‘magnum force’ of guidance and information, makes this class is a real winner, ANY time of year.

    • Anna Aspnes

      You are so kind Beverly. Glad to have you for another year – Your artistry is exquisite.

  3. Gail O’Brien (verified owner)

    This is the first one I did. Even though I did not finish my book in time I learnt a lot. It is an easy to follow course for a beginner ad well. Will definitely do the next and finish my book before then. Keep up the good work. We all appreciate and love it.

    • Anna Aspnes

      It’s never too late to start a project like this, or finish a current one. Remember the magic happens one layout at a time and is based on the pages you complete as opposed to those that you don’t. Thank you for the kind words.

    aA Project 2019 was my third year participating in this project as always I enjoyed it immensely. I finally finished the project I started last year and am in the process of uploading my completed photobook to be printed. The combination of Anna’s planning process, encouragement and interaction with Anna and other students via the Facebook group is inspiring and full of information and suggestions that certainly made my completed album a better one. I am so enthused by the experience that I am planning my project for the end of 2020 already.

    • Anna Aspnes

      I can’t wait to see all the pages that you’ve created in both Projects 2018 and 2019 together 🙂 Such a beautiful book – Thank you for taking the time.

    I joined this class half-way through but was welcomed and encouraged as I made my way through the prompts and videos. I am a seasoned digital scrapbook creator but had lost my joy in the process and this class reignited my desire to create! Lots of helpful hints for everyone- no matter whether you are new to digital artistry or a veteran. Thank you Anna!

    • Anna Aspnes

      Thank you Carol!

    I have purchased many of Anna’s classes and love every one of them! I had numerous photo books started when I signed up for this class and although I am not finished this project yet, I am one-page away from finishing and plan to put my order in this week The class contains so much helpful info via videos, handouts and most importantly, the one-on-one feedback from Anna as well as other class members. This is such an invaluable part of the course. I have also learned much from the feedback on other people’s uploads – whether you agree with it or not, it is food for thought and offers alternatives you may not have considered.

    You can’t beat the price plus the discount provided on the templates that were suggested. Even if you don’t know what to do your project on, there are so many suggestions that you are sure to figure it out. Also, Anna offers her help if you are stuck.

    Wordart prompts are also emailed each day plus notes and suggestions for that day’s layout.

    Can’t recommend this highly enough!

    • Anna Aspnes

      Yes to finishing a project 🙂 Thank you for sharing your experience.

    I have finished my 50 pages and am proofing them now. This is the fourth year I signed up for the class. I did not finish the first year. I was not organized enough and did not know how to use my tools. I have finished every book since then. I almost did not do this year’s but I am so happy that I did. I learned more than I thought I would. Anna’s attention to detail is a big help. I am going to move onto my Grandparents book and utilize the use of transfers in the templates. Thank you everyone, especially Anna, for a great December experience. Also, I have subscribed to all of Anna’s classes and have found them interesting and immensely helpful. I will continue with her classes as my art evolves.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Love having you in class Karen and watching your artistry grow. 50 pages? Nicely done!!

  8. krfarmer (verified owner)

    This is my first class and I loved it! However, I wish this class was offered earlier in the year, it was difficult to dedicate time to it in the month of December. Be prepared to allocate time amongst the busiest time of the year for most of us! It also took me longer than I anticipated, but I am a bit of a perfectionist. If you have Photoshop or Elements skills, you will have no time picking up the ability to use the templates. If you don’t there are really easy videos to watch and you are off to the races. I did finish my book and ordered a copy of it yesterday. I just love it and have never completed something so “artsy” before…even in my physical scrapbooking days! I am converted!

    • Anna Aspnes

      Thanks for the feedback – We’ve been doing this Project in December for MANY years now and I don’t see that changing but there is opportunity to run a Project in July for those that find December a little challenging. So happy you enjoyed the class and the resulting photo book. Amazing stuff!

    As always, Anna didn’t disappoint. I knew I wouldn’t have time to do this project in the December/January timeframe, but I purchased & downloaded everything anyway. The videos & class materials are superb! Anna is very thorough in her teaching, & her style is so easy to follow. The only semi-negative I had was that the Daily Prompts didn’t seem apropos for my personal use (though some were). I am not a regular Facebook user, but I do love seeing others’ layouts. I’d prefer they be on a different platform.
    I have taken a lot of Anna’s classes & I have to say that in each & every one I learn new things. She provides little tips along the way that aren’t learned through the usual digital tutorials elsewhere. After about 3 years, I am finally feeling more comfortable with the tools & techniques, but I still revisit earlier class notes & videos. I’m a perfectionist & I tend to agonize over every single thing, which draws out the process. The hardest part for me is still sticking to the organization & the follow-through by actually making the layouts.
    I have 2 major albums to finish, so now that the holidays are over & I’m part-way through some of my “have-to” activities, I intend to put the skills from this class into work on those books. I’ve done a lot of the prep work already, so it’s pretty much a matter of just getting to it.
    Thank you, Anna, for guiding me through this wonderful artistic experience! And a special thank-you for providing it at an affordable price—with extra goodies to-boot!

    • Anna Aspnes

      Anytime! I am always happy to help and appreciate your sharing your thoughts on your Project 2019 experience.

  10. Teresa Schwartz (verified owner)

    This is my first class with you and I truly loved the videos and all the goodies that we used in the class. I’m sorry to say that I only got a few pages done at the moment. We moved right before I signed up and I’m still trying to find pictures! But it will get finished, just late. I have admired your work for several years now and am looking forward to another class and to go through more of your tutorials and videos. Thanks so much for all you do!

    • Anna Aspnes

      All good. Jump back in when you get unpacked. I’m always available via email and the Project 2019 Facebook group will remain open throughout the year. I definitely invite you to share your pages so we can cheer you along. Appreciate the very kind words.

  11. Jeanne Hoadley (verified owner)

    Anna shows a genuine concern for the progress and learning of each participant. Her comments and suggestions are always helpful and offered in a positive and supportive way. Being part of the Project 2019 community on Facebook helped me to stay focused on the goal and complete my project in a timely manner.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Jeanne, your project was stunning and you were so strong in your process. Awesome to hear however I was able to encourage and guide you. My aim is always to help facilitate and aid in the elevation of your artistry. Mission accomplished 🙂

  12. Terri Fullerton (verified owner)

    I bought the course knowing that I couldn’t start until January. I am just getting started now, but the content is amazing, once again. The prompts and word art are so helpful in getting my creative energy going. The videos also are so helpful with creative ideas and processes to make things go quickly and easily. Lots of great inspiration in the Facebook group as well. If you need to get a project started and finished in a reasonable time frame this is the perfect class!! Loving it!

    • Anna Aspnes

      So happy to hear this! Please let me know if you need any support as you make your way through your project – You can email me directly or post in our dedicated Facebook Group.

    This was a fabulous, fun and challenging project and I am really glad I decided to go for it this year. I’d started one in 2017 and could not finish and the difference this year was the planning and organization prior to starting and the encouragement to pick any theme that was meaningful. The Facebook group was encouraging and supportive and helped me challenge myself to posting a completed page every single day… which I did even if it was 3 am in the morning! I also challenged myself by posting my efforts on my Instagram… and had fun withe people following along the journey. Feedback and suggestions were encouraging and always food for thought/consideration. It was helpful seeing other participants creations (in fact I would say this was a big part of the success of the course, it is hard to do it without fellow artists support) and we all had different challenges and approaches. And Anna’s guidance is excellent, always positive and encouraging. I published my 32pp book and I totally love it. It was also an opportunity to use the many of aA materials I have and try new things.
    For consideration – perhaps this might be offered earlier in the year or maybe November. I understand why it’s December however it was very challenging for me doing this in the month of December and I had to put everything else on hold. Due to the pace (I wanted to create a page a day for December and dropping even one day would have made it hard to catch up) I had no time at all to watch the videos once the course started so I probably missed out on some key information that may have helped me. Still, i kept going, used what I knew and achieved my goal so it’s okay. Doing it in December does focus the mind. I highly recommend the course if you are thinking of doing it… you will learn a lot, try new things, become more confident and it will show in your artistry and you will feel so great when you finish – whenever that is. It’s excellent value too so give yourself a gift you will love for a long time after. I’m looking forward to doing another book. Thanks Anna, great Project 2019.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Super feedback Nicky. It’s become a bit of a tradition to do this in December but plans are afoot to do another Project in July as an alternative schedule.

  14. Miranda DENBREEJEN (verified owner)

    As a non-native english speaker I really find it difficult to write a satisfying review, Anna. But I do totally agree with Charlene Mitchell words above. It is a real pleasure to study your classes and videos and follow the evolution of your creativity.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Thank you so much for these kind words Mirandaa. Means much 🙂

  15. dimorr1980 (verified owner)

    This has been another great class, full of inspiration and teaching. Even though December can get busy, this always motivates me to set aside some time to work on my chosen project and it always gets done! Highly recommend the class.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Yep! Really helps me slow down a bit and count my blessings – Thank you for sharing!

  16. Leslie Brookman (verified owner)

    Wonderful class from start to finish! It had been a few years since I’d taken a class from Anna and I had forgotten how truly inspiring and informative they could be! All her materials were well-organized and incredibly helpful. The accompanying videos provided so many useful tips and tricks that I feel like I took my Photoshop skills to a whole new level! I also enjoyed seeing other people’s work and learning from Anna’s feedback in the online forum. This class helped me refocus my creative energies and has rekindled my passion for memory keeping through digital artistry. Thank you, Anna!

    • Anna Aspnes

      So happy to hear this Leslie – Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the process and I love that this class elevated your Photoshop skills.

    Even though the Festive Season is insanely busy, I look forward to this class every year. It gives me a chance to catch up and get books done by year end and have some artistic time during all the madness of getting ready for Christmas.

    Anna’s classes are professionally organized, prepared and delivered. The inclusion of a significant amount of art work was a wonderful bonus this year and saved a lot of shopping in my own gallery for needed artwork to complete the project.

    The FB group is a lovely way for like minded folks to connect, socialize and brainstorm. There are some amazing artists out there.

    Make sure you sign up in the beginning . . the price can’t be beat with the teaching, supplies and the tools all being included in the offering.

    Highly recommend. Anna is the best online instructor I have had the pleasure of working with.
