See what some of them have to say.
I really loved this course. So many creative ideas that sparked my imagination. Molly's instructions are really clear, and I loved that things didn't need to be perfect to work well. I applied what I learned immediately to make a concertina book for a friend's 50th birthday. I'll definitely be doing more of these. A great way to make gifts or use for your own memorabilia.
thank you thank you! i have sooo many greeting cards that i can't bear to throw away...now i don't have to! great ideas and easy to follow.
I am looking for alternative creative projects to expand my creativity. Molly's class is very well done. She presents quite a few ways to enhance the collage effect of the books and goes through step by step instructing as the class moves along. I would recommend this to others interested in expanding their collage techniques.
