Energy Journal: Thursday Oct 22 7-10pm $70 for retreat attendees $85 for non retreat attendees….
This fast paced and unique class is a start to finish project using my favorite mirror album to make
a use-able inspiring daily ‘energy’ journal and planner. I will be sharing my inspiration and favorite
quotes... and ways to balance your ‘energy’ currency. We’ll talk about where energy comes from
and where it goes as well as HOW to harness it to give you positive power in your
daily life! You will LOVE the clever ‘twist’ and interactive calender element! In addition to tons of
pink black and sparkles... kit includes and exclusive set of silhouettes that aren’t for sale in stores,
and comes complete with a fabulous glossy pink storage box
supplies needed: Paper trimmer, scissors, Crop-o-dile, black ink pad, paper piercer, exacto knife, small cutting mat,
stapler and staples, pencil, adhesive, corner-rounder.

Create a 6x10” mini book using exclusively designed clear embellishments and unique
cutting and trimming techniques to create a deceptively simple mini-book that is perfect
for compiling random memories. Book is organized into ‘chapters’ that separate events or
people and unifies them in a comprehensive book. Great to capture a year, or a season or
just ANYTHING! Great gift idea! Kit is created from bright blues and greens: Bazzill
cardstock and Heidi Swapp papers. Covers created using Claudine Hellmuth paints and
sticky backed canvas. Book is bound using either a crop o dile and book rings or a Zutter
Bind it all machine.

this 6x12 book can be used for all different subject matter.. but mostly capturing the
HERE and NOW. The use is a combination of journaling and compiling inspirational
quotes and pairing those quotes with photos that you have or can capture of your world
around you! Book is made up of exclusive inspirational page elements, put together in
clever ways. It’s one of those projects that captures the journey, and when you look back
on it, you’ll be so grateful that you took the time to add to it along the way. It will serve
to motivate and inspire… and be a treasure for years to come. Class will include a miniworkshop
on journaling along with some great prompts to write about to capture the here
