Hello, all! So, this is sadly my last blog post on Simply Ann. I will miss all your kind words and comments and questions! Today I’m showing you a fun little tag photo book you can make using the Tags & Trims Cutting Dies. I also use the very sparkly adhesive glitter sheets, which are transparent, so they are fun to use overlapping different elements. I hope you enjoy!

Things I used not in the bundle:
Honeysuckle Paper Pack
Honeysuckle Ribbon Set
Kraft brown cardstock (4 sheets of it can be found in this Classic Cardstock pack)

Thank you all for watching and participating in Simply Ann. I truly appreciate it. I had a lot of fun and I hope I inspired you a little bit to go make something creative! My email is viewable in the below video if you want to contact me for any reason. Thanks again, and never stop crafting!

If you’re looking for more creative inspiration, go to and click on Weekly Webisodes or scroll down to the bar that says “Find Your Inspiration” and you’ll find lots of ideas! P.S. Teresa’s Christmas Look Week of Webisodes is airing all this week Monday-Friday, so don’t miss it!

    Teaching! God Bless You!

    Hi Ann!
    You probably don’t remember me but I met you while visiting my Aunt Paulette one time. You both let me sit in on a webisode. That was really fun! I have enjoyed watching your Simply Ann webisodes as much as your webisodes with Paulette. You are so talented and a very good teacher too :). I will miss your weekly lessons very much. Know how appreciated you have been to so many. I hope you get to continue developing your artistic talents even though you will be much busier now.
    Thanks for all your inspiration!

  39. Helen Romanino says:

    Ann – I certainly am like most in that I don’t like good byes. Everyone has to follow their own dream, believe me I know because I had to make that decision a long time ago and I never regretted it. Thank you for your inspiration on cardmaking. You are so talented and such a wonderful teacher. After reading several of the other comments I know I am not alone in my thoughts and on how inspiring you have been to all of us.I wish you the best always in all ways.

  40. Susan says:

    Ann, I am so sorry you are leaving, You have been one of the bright spots in a sometime dark world. I really enjoy the time we have spent together and all the Fun Ideas you have showed all of us.

    Hello Ann,

    After returning from our two weeks on vacation last week, I am finally getting back into my routine of watching your Simply Ann blog.

    I am sad to see you leave. I’ve enjoyed your step-by-step instructions of your beautiful cards. Thank you for sharing your gift, of creative card crafting, with us.

    I know how important it is to take care of family first. I wish you all the best in your new job. Your new employer is gaining a wonderful asset.

    Wishing you and your beautiful family all the best. Goodbyes are so final; instead, until we meet again.

    I belatedly reviewed this tab and discovered all of the additional webisodes and related product offers I had been missing out on. I’m so sorry to see such a talented artist/teacher go. I wish you and your beautiful family the best. Take care! I hope to see your work out again in the crafting circuit again soon.

  44. Joan says:

    Ann you’ve been such an inspiration! You are a very talented artist and I hope you keep creating things whether with family, friends or work. I’ll miss seeing your happy face. Best wishes for the future!

  46. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!
