The box took a long time to make, all the cuts, but it was well worth it. The box turned out beautiful and I added extra embellishments. The instructor was great and she explained in easy directions. My box turned out BEAUTIFUL! Waiting for her next class. I would give this class 5 star, but this class is not for beginners.

I found this class to be great everything was easy to follow - and everyone has loved the ones I have created. But there is one thing it was the shape of the box - I had to do some modifications when it came to the ends - but it all worked out in the end

I am so pleased with this box I am about to be a Nanna for the first time and cannot wait to show my son and daughter in law what a wonderful keepsake this is. Thankyou so much I really have enjoyed this tutorial and have no doubt I will be making a few more of these in the not too distant future. Just one downside I wish I had got the CD, as like the previous comment when you want to back to just one piece it takes a bit of juggling to get to where you finished previously Thanks again this has been a real labour of LOVE!!!

I am a scrapbooker, painter and card maker. The box is really cute and has great potential, however if you have arthritis I suggest that you do not create this box. There are a lot of cuts for this box. I had a friend help me on this and she also has arthritis in her hands and it was hard for her also. The other problem I have had a horrible time with is the internet. I pause the internet and then when I go to restart the project it won't start in the same spot. That is frustrating. I have not finished the box but hope to do so tonight.

I adore this box and album. It was so easy to follow Kathy's instructions like being in a one-to-one class. I admit to making an error early on and gave myself a lot of extra work. However the result is wonderful. It has been admired so much and I'm proud of my effort but more than happy to explain where I had the details and instructions from. The baby girl was born 2 days ago and now I can hand over this precious gift. I would not hesitate to construct another project if Kathy decides to video one. Joan in UK
