Junk Journal of the Month Club
In every class, you will get all of the scoop on creating books with found materials, designing unique covers and closures, adding pages, adding pockets, embellishments and more. The creative opportunities with altered book art are endless. We will have a new book theme every single month, with a new opportunity to learn a new way to get creative with book building.
Learn Multiple Ways to Alter Books
We will go through a new altered book project every month. Jennifer will take you through each one step-by-step and you will see your skills and knowledge grow when you realize how much you can do! Before long you will be sharing your creations with friends and family.
Thrift, Hunt, Repurpose
There is nothing that compares to creativity that comes from taking something that would have been discarded, recognizing its charm, and giving it new life. We will take paper ephemera and textiles - most likely stuff you already have - and learn to create super fun and interesting books and embellishments.
Connect With Others
Connect with an online community of like-minded women who are positive and fun. You will have member-only access to a private Facebook group as well as VIP access to the member area on our website. Gain inspiration from learning together and sharing your altered book ideas while making new friends.
Hi, I'm Jennifer!
I have loved loved loved paper stuff since I was a little girl. I have vivid recollections of Current stationary and writing to my pen pal. I loved the stickers and the foldable notecards. I was a scrapbooker from an early age, pasting my favorite photos, newspaper clippings, and memorabilia to the brown paper pages. When scrapbooking became popular in the early 90's, I was all in! I spent many late nights cutting and pasting with my girlfriends, until the trend gave way to digital photography and memory keeping.
I'm the type of creative who likes to repurpose. I get really inspired by book pages and old images from children's books. I love the printed word and - don't judge me - the smell of book pages. Whether it's all of the cardstock and patterned paper left from my scrapbooking days, beautiful images from antique books, or vintage inspired fabric & textiles, I thrive on using it to create something wonderful.
I love sharing what I've learned and the joy of making with others. The world of altered book making can seem overwhelming, but it's so tremendously fun and rewarding. I will break it down for you step-by-step and even provide printable pages and images for you if you need them. I am here to make it easy to understand and learn one step at a time. I know how many of you want to learn more about altered book art - that's why I created The Altered Book Nook!
