Inspired by the book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, this 8x8" hardbound book that we will create from scratch is not just a scrapbook but is also a journal that can literally change your life. We'll be stamping and misting, and cutting and folding, and creating a multi-dimensional series of pages that will be ready for your "grace notes"... a record of the little blessings that you observe throughout your days: the moments that can slip away forever if you don't take time to acknowledge them. Your book can be a "life-album" in miniature... a reflection of a life lived with gratitude.
Using products from October Afternoon, 7gypsies, American Crafts, Unibind, and more, we'll assemble this beautiful book that is sure to become one of your dearest treasures. You'll also discover new techniques for creating your own hardcover books at home.
