I would like to say that I absolutely love your website and your digital
paper paks. I am particularly fond of the work of Michelle Shefveland. She is
truly an artist. I like the way the website is organized, and it loads quickly
too. It is a pleasure to shop at CottageArts. I frequently browse your products
and would love to know if you have a Wish List feature. If you do, I have not
found it. If you don't, I would like to suggest that you add one. It would be
the icing on the cake, so to speak!
I just had to email you again!! I have
completed the 37 years worth of scrapbook pages and everyone is very
impressed. I have learned a lot along the way about scrapbooking,
Paint Shop Pro, and about basic computer skills. In all I have
completed 49 pages and I can see the improvement as I review the
pages. All this is thanks to your book, so I thank you from the
bottom of my heart. I have also found "Cottage Arts" and eagerly
look forward to the bi-monthly news letters. It is a great site. I
look forward to your next book and I wish you every success in your

I was so glad to have had the chance to meet you in Minneapolis at
the Mall of America Scrapbook Festival. I already have all of your CDs and
your book and love them all.
Patricia N., Afton, Iowa
I really enjoyed your class at the Scrapbooking Convention
at the Mall of America. I am excited to get started with Paint Shop Pro using
your book and templates. Thanks for the inspiration!
Martha L., Burnsville, MN
Got my CDs and they are fantastic. I have already done a little
project that I have framed as a gift for a friend.
I see you have a real nice book available now, I will be buying
that and I am sure it will answer most of my questions.
Thanks for the tips on file sizes!
Wendy, South Africa
I just wanted to say "thank you" for
sending the CDs to me so promptly - I ordered them Sunday afternoon
and they arrived here in England on Thursday morning - what service!
You might also be interested to know that I
looked at the "paper CD" yesterday evening and it loads into Printmaster
easily. I really am pleased with it.
The second CD is for a friend's 60th birthday
and I am sure she will be thrilled, too.
Penny J., England
“Thanks so much! I think that your customer service is awesome!
I can't wait to get the CD!”
“Thank you very much - Wonderful customer service! Highly
“I love your CDs! I made a book for my mother-in-law of a family
vacation we went on as a Christmas gift and she loved it!”
I really love the CDs and I want to try the above 2 CDs. Looking
forward in hearing from you. Thank you, again, for all the help and
effort you put into this. I appreciate it more than you know.
Monika, Bedford, OH
I just love this website. All the digital artwork is just great.
I'm working on a digital scrapbook for my family reunion.
Melenda, Southfield, MI
This is the first time I've visited a scrapbook web site and
it's great. I don't have the time or energy to do scrapbooking the
other way. Digital is much easier for me.
Tanja, APO, US
I think your CDs are great! I just wish I had more time in the
day to work with them.
Barb, Kissimmee, FL
You were so helpful with my questions awhile back about trying
your CDs with my old ibook and Photodeluxe. Well, the Apple did not
last much longer than that. I am a new Windows and Photoshop Elements
user and can't wait to try your product!
Anne, Branford, CT
Last week I ordered three of your Simply Digital CDs. I am so
pleased with them. I wanted to add the rest to my collection. With
having two weddings this past summer I have a lot of scrapping to do.
Thank you for your November issue and the Creating Photo-filled Text
using ALOHA as the example. My son's wedding had a Hawaiian Theme.
What great ideas for pages. Keep up the great work. Also, I love the
poem section by Thena, as I am always looking for poem ideas to
incorporate with my pages. Thanks again.
Sandy, South Bend, IN
Wow! Thanks for the quick response! I totally didn't notice
that. This is my first purchase of ANYTHING to do with digital
scrapbooking - much less your website. Thank you so much and what
WONDERFUL customer service. I'll be back - now that I'm addicted to
digital scrapbooking (no more glue and papercuts!) and you've made my
experience a VERY pleasant one.
Dana, Cabot, AR
I was extremely happy with the product and service I received!
I received feedback on an option I made giving me other options
that I was not aware of. I chose the suggested option and this
resulted in my getting the product I ordered just over a week from
delivery date for an international delivery.
I am very pleased as I am now using the product.

Scrapbooking the Digital Way
I just wanted to share with you (Michelle) that your book is
When I purchased it, I was very leery about my purchase. All too often, "how
to" books are simply explanations of functions or have only a small portion that
I find useful. Frequently, I could have saved my money and just looked at
on-line help features instead of purchasing a book.
That is NOT the case with "Scrapbooking The Digital Way". I have been using
PSP for photo editing and creating some graphics, but I'm not terribly
experienced and using my PSP for digital scrapbooking is still pretty new for
me. This book not only detailed out the exact things I wanted to know, but it
was neither too complex or too simple.
Thank you for writing a book that answered my exact needs! I'm now
recommending this book to anyone I can convince to give digital scrapbooking a
Thanks for saving me hours and hours of searching for tutorials and trying to
figure out how to do it myself! My friends are going to have to buy their own
copy, because mine is not available for lending!
Laura D., Oregon
I just have to tell you how much I love your book!! What an
amazing resource! It is so well-written, and yields beautiful results
with each chapter. I really appreciate how you focus each chapter to a
specific technique and don't expect your reader to already know the
entire program. I'm learning as I go along through you're book, and
I'm having so much fun. With twin two-year-olds, it's amazing that
I've even completed any layouts. That is definitely due to your great
teaching style. Thank you so much!
Anne, Branford, CT
I just opened my package with "Scrapbooking the Digital Way." I
am just blown away by this book! I had to email and tell you how
thrilled I am. I work in IT and have dozens of technical books so I
know what I look for in a good book to teach me how-to's. This one is
fantastic! I took a chance and ordered a book sight unseen and got way
beyond what I was expecting. Wow what a surprise!
Thank you Michelle Shefveland and JASC for an incredible how-to
book. This is one that will keep you up until the wee hours trying
just one more thing.
Therese, Merriam, KS
for my speedy shipment of my New Digi Scrapbooking book. Michelle
Shefveland is one talented gal and I have been reading her book
every free second I have.
your newsletter, as well...anyway, thanks for your time and thanks again for
the speedy shipment. I was so excited when it arrived in less than 48
hours. I will definitely recommend you to my friends.
Have a great
Dee, New Lenox, IL
I got your book today and I am more than thrilled with it! I
have been playing with programs for years and they never look good.
This book has made a high difference. I also have ordered all the
product so that I can keep playing and learning.
Laura, Chino Valley, AZ
Thank you so much. I'm looking forward to your new discs.
Checking the website daily to see what's going to be on them. I've got
a new grandchild on the way and the kids disc sounds especially good.
By the way I ordered Michelle's book from Jasc. It arrived Monday I
think and I've been playing with it ever since. I'm amazed at the
secrets she's giving away. Following her instructions I'm getting
gorgeous results. Now if she could just impart some of her artistic
talent I'd be set.
Rosemary, Norfolk, VA
Just had to write to say how much I am enjoying this latest
newsletter. Excellent. They just keep getting better and better.
Thank you also for the chance to read a chapter of the new book
on Digital Scrapbooking. Please tell me where I can buy it in Australia.
Katherine, Sydney, Australia
I LOVE the book! :) It is so easy to follow and I love how it
describes making your own embellishments (buttons and things)… So I'm
going to have fun tonight trying all the things I've been reading about in the book.
