National Craft Month (and my new on-line class) is here!


It’s March – aka National Craft Month and I’ve got a ton to celebrate! First of all, my newest on-line class – the largest class I’ve done to date at is now live! You can still join in at the early bird price ($35) for this class. It is going to be four months long, and in that time you’ll get to see my entire vacation album be built – from organizing the photos to creating single, double, and pocket page layouts for it! If that 30+ layouts isn’t enough – I also have six guest instructors joining me and sharing projects ranging from mini books to traditional layouts.

Even if you’re not scrapbooking a vacation you’ll find loads of fun and inspiration in this class – you don’t want to miss out! You can find out more information and register here.  

Want to win a spot in class? Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win. (note if you’ve already registered and win a spot your class fee will be refunded). What could be better? Let’s crank this give-away up to make it worth over $100!! That’s right. I went on a shopping spree and purchased some amazing new goodies…

  1. I am loving the look of those stencils and the cracked pistachio ink. Thanks for all the upcoming fun.

  2. I’ve wanted to try stencils for a while. This looks like it would be a good set to experiment with. Your new class looks like so much fun!

  3. Who could resist anything Tim Holtz or Dina Wakley and a spot in your class, just too nice! Thanks for a chance to win.

  4. One of my goals for this year was to finish at least one of our vacation albums….I’ve not been working towards that goal, this would really help I think. Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. Sounds like a wonderful class! I’m making it through this dreary winter by planning our vacation for late spring … and trying to get last year’s vacation scrapped.

  6. I just ordered 3 classes from your website the upcomming in one of it, I would love to win as I own 2 stencils and I see a lot of them.

  7. Already loving the vacation class, and look at all those tasty goodies! Thank you for all the inspiration, May, and for the chance to win.

  8. That class will be very special! What a great price for early bird special!!!! And those goodies look yummilicious!!! I so hope I win!!! Thanks for being such a great instructor May. I just love your teaching style and I love your work! I’m taking your mixed media card class and have been loving it!!!

  9. The class sounds like so much fun! I always get stalled out when it comes to vacation photos.

    And the giveaway … *SWOON*

    Thanks so much for the chance to win.

  10. Looks like a great giveaway…..the class sounds fun and it sounds like it would motivate me to do something different with vacation photos!!!

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  11. What a great offer, thanks for the chance to win. I am so far behind in vacation albums that I will probably mix the pictures up with the stories if I don’t get on them soon.

  12. Looks like stencil heaven 🙂 – something I’ve begun to piddle with after seeing so many of your projects.

    I like this idea of taking ‘tons’ of photos and paring them down. We don’t do many big vacations for which t I would use this, but can see where the process would be good for things such as my son’s baseball years (8 years) or my daughter’s dance years (currently in year 11). While I’ve done a page here and there, I want to do a baseball album, a cross country album, a dance album and really tell the ‘story’. You can imagine how many thousands of photos from which I have to choose.

    Beginning to think hard about taking the class….hearing you explain the class in your video is always so helpful to truly understand it. 🙂

  13. The class sounds awesome! You always provide so many tips and so much inspiration!!

  14. I have 5 years of Disney vacations to scrap. I could really use this class. And I see Janna Werner and Ashli Oliver are guest teachers too. Love that!

  15. Thanks very much for a chance to win. Such a generous, awesome giveaway. Michelle t

  16. Where did you find the new Cracked Pistachio color? I’ve been searching for a month or better for it and can’t find it anywhere–Michael’s, Jo-Ann’s or Hobby Lobby! It would be neat to win this class. I myself started with scrapbooking and have been doing more art journaling lately, so I need to sit down and crank out a few pages! It would be great for the inspiration. Totally want to get my hands on that new Tim Holtz Cracked Pistachio!

  17. Such a fun giveaway! Thanks for the chance and thanks for you inspiring videos over on youtube! I enjoy watching you get messy and make something lovely!

  18. Oh my! wiping the drool off my chin……looks like another great class! Loving the looks of the Dina stamps, stencils, ink….thank you once again for the chance.

  19. The class sounds like something I need…I have lots of vacations that need to be scrapped and can use all the guidance I can get. I would also love to win all those stencils! They look awesome.

  20. Ooh another class with May! I really enjoyed the “Supplies on Hand” class, think I’m about ready for another class. Would love to win some stencils too, I have been looking at misting and masking on LOs lately but am not sure where to start – I don’t have any stencils at all!

  21. This class looks great! I’m working through vacation photos right now and could use all the ideas I can get. The extra goodies look amazing too!!

  22. i’ve really enjoyed your classes. I am working on a Hawaii album, this just might help me get through iT!

  23. Wow…….love, love, love stencils! This is a fantastic giveaway! I see a Tim Holtz’s new cracked pistachio ink in the photo : ) The stamps look awesome as well which I am sure they are since it looks like Dina Wakley packaging! Very excited!

  29. Wow what an amazing giveaway! Would love a spot in the class I’ve got an old cruise album I would like to do 🙂 This would be so AWESOME to win as March can be a very tight month on the wallet with taxes due. Thanks for a chance to win this fantastic class 🙂

  34. I have several vacation albums started, but not completed. Been stumped on how to proceed. Need this class!

  35. The stamps and stencils look like products I’d buy—I love flowers and take a lot of flower photos. Scrapbooking is so difficult for me to accomplish somehow, I could use the inspiration.

    Thank you so much for the chance to win!!
