"LifeBook 101" ...a new way of thinking and journaling

Are you one of those scrappers who can't think of the right words to say on a layout?  Do you hesitate when writing what you truly feel in the moment? Do you suffer from JOURNALER'S BLOCK?

Conceived by Angela Urbano and Emily Block, owner of Stamping Bella, LifeBooking is a new revolutionary way of looking at how we scrapbook. LifeBooking is booking life. It's time to track the little details of your life, the simple facts to the most difficult emotions, and the light bulb to the Seinfeld moments we experience every day.  A LifeBook page doesn't always start with a visual, a colour palette, a photo or pretty patterned paper. Sometimes it's the words tell the story.  Sometimes it's the WORDS that paint a better picture.  Sometimes it's the words that capture the moment.

Angela will take you through "Journaler's Block" exercises to create a double page LifeBook spread (**added bonus - students will also make a 12"x 12"layout and a card!). Join the girls in their LifeBooking adventure. Check out their different LifeBooking techniques which make them each unique as well as makes them one. They will arm you with tools needed to start capturing the words. They will arm you with the most POWERFUL tool needed.  The power of YOUR words. Lifebook that.
