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 Keepsake Books Classroom & Community!
