IMHO, asking if she sells the tutorial is fine, but asking for tips on how to make them is a big no no. I hate it if people ask me how to make something or where do I buy my stuff.
I know most people don't like it either.

I know a lot of them don't like to because it is their business and income but look how many folks are on this forum alone and are so willing to help others.
