F04849 - Anna Griffin Scrapbook Layouts and Cardmaking Kit
Very Disappointed when received kit. Wasn't at all what I expected and directions were confusing. Would have been better with step by step diagrams.
Super Super Disappointed
I've never given a negative review. I spend thousands of dollars on scrap booking and card making supplies each year. I was so excited to get this kit and learn from Anna, however I packed it up to send back, I even took it to the the UPS store, but when I found it cost half the price of the kit return the kit I decided I could use it for other things.
The colors are faded. I couldn't tell yellow from green or beige. I tried the look at the pictures on the instructions, but the print on the instructions was so light I couldn't begin to tell what paper was what except for the black. I was going to get the Anna's " Carolina or Georgette Embellishment and Paper Kit". Now I won't even consider them. Maybe mine was just a faded kit. It looks much brighter on QVC.
I can finally do it!
This is a super kit for those intermediate and above scrapbookers. It has good directions (read carefully) and the pages you get are truly works of art. Plus, the techniques are usable on other pages. A+
Follow Instructions Carefully!
This is a great kit! The paper and embellishments are high quality. When this product was being demo'd on tv, what caught my attention was the project where you can make an awning on the page (similar to an awning over a window on your home). What a neat technique for scrapbooking! It took me over two hours to finally figure out the folding technique described in the instructions and to place the awning correctly on the project. So my advice is read the instructions very carefully and to use removable tape, as I made alot of mistakes on this project trying to get it right. It would have been nice to have a side view of this project so that you are aware of what the folding technique is supposed to look like. The picture for the awning project in the instructions was not useful for this technique. Very nice page, but it just took me awhile to put it together.
I love this kit. It has easy to follow instructions and of course you can't beat the price!!!
If you want pages that are works of art, this is the kit for you! Anna's papers are stunning and her techniques are beautiful! Never a cookie cutter layout, always something special with Anna Griffin! The instructions are alone worth the price, get this kit!
Anna always has such elegant products and this is yet another of them. I only wish there had been ideas with it. The paper is awesome and such great quality. I think I have everything she has done. Keep it coming. When I make cards from her products (papers & all the other goodies) I get such wonderful compliments. It is so nice, I have a hard time cutting it for cards. On the other hand, I can't decide what scrapbook page to use it on. All my pictures are precious to me and I want them all to look special. I tend to have a hard time letting any of it go.
