I’ve got a class kit from my Altered Book class that I just finished teaching up for grabs!!

You’ll get the full class kit + link to the videos I made for class AND extras. Like a bottle of spun sugar distress stain, some distress stickles, and other FABULOUS stuff that I can tuck into the box.

  11. May, I wanted to take your class in Elk Grove Saturday but I was signed up for Tim’s and couldn’t figure out how to do both. I guess I should have just hitched a ride with you, lol. Would love to have a kit though…

  12. Please, please pick me. I can be new if I have to be. I could dye my hair or something.
    I just about cried when my cousin recently had to throw out a collection of Nancy Drew books that had been damaged when her basement flooded from the storms we have had. These had belonged to my aunt and were originals published in the 1930’s and 40’s.

  13. Hi May ~~ I know I’m not new to your blog, but I do love it!!! I know I also bought one of these and absolutely LOVE it, but my Aunt is wanting me to make one for her, so thought I’d put my name in the running (if I qualify =)

  25. May, these books are so fab! Would love to win a kit, but in the meantime would you tell me something? Are they Tim holtz ring binders inside and do you have a photo of the inside of the binder? I’m just wondering if you used the brads supplied and how you made them look neat inside.

    thanks
