⚙️…how do I create spreads that I’ll love and keep forever?

⚙️…how do I create spreads that I can turn into offerings + set me apart from other readers?

Why I created this course 

To simply put, I created this course is because I LOVE SPREAD CRAFTING and I want to share what I love with everybody. Super fluffy, I know. But hey, if you love something, you share it with the world, right? ♥

People always ask me about my process and some commissioned me to create spreads for them - which I'm super honoured by. But for me, enabling somebody to create a spread is so much more meaningful than just making a spread for them - I'm all for empowering and unlocking someone's creative process. It's one of my greatest joys in life. 

So yeah...sorry to disappoint you if you were looking looking to read some tragic spread-crafting backstory full of paper-cutting woes or something. 

Also, another reason why I created this course is because I feel that tarot spreads are often overlooked and taken for granted - because we normally don't focus on them when we're developing as cardslingers.

A tarot spread is kind of like a ROAD MAP that captures your unique perspecives and thought process

When you think about it, a tarot spread is essentially a creative piece that is super functional, super expressive, and super conductive of the ideas that you're trying to...wait for it..."spread". A tarot spread is more than just a layout where you place your cards...it is a reflection of the spread creator's thought process and worldview. 

From the first spread position to the last, it is a journey that you embark on. When you use a spread created by someone else and go through the spread positions in the order that they've set, you are sort of traveling in their heads a bit, right? 

Each spread position is a designated checkpoint that guide you to arrive at a particular destination or insight. That's what makes tarot spreads so awesome. That's why I wanted to make this course - I want everybody to be able to partake on this incredibly rewarding and practical creative endeavour.

Questions? I Got Answers!

lighter yellow clouds background.png

1. I’m so confused - Why are there different versions of this course?

There are essentially three versions, or three “available quests” for this course. There are three versions so cater to the diverse needs of the tarot community. For example, you may be a solo-practitioner and you may not necessary be a deck creator, so why spend money on that chapter? Similarly, you may be a deck creator, but you may not be interested in offering readings or service.

If you happen to be all three (solo cardslinger, professional tarot reader AND deck creator) or you’re just interested in getting everything, you can purchase the Quest of All Quests which includes EVERYTHING from the Tarot Pro’s Quest and the Deck Creator’s Quest. Like, literally everything and no separations.

All three courses will contain chapters one to six and all the materials associated with each chapter, so regardless of which version you buy, you will always get the first six chapters of the Tarot Spread Machine.

2. What level of tarot experience do I need to enroll in this course? 

This course is friendly and open to all levels of tarot practitioners! Wherever you are on your tarot journey, you will be able to follow along + utilize this course without issue. You don't need to have all the card definitions memorized in order to partake in this course - but it will help if you have some basic experience of doing a tarot reading so you will be able to visualize and understand the flow of a tarot spread as you will be creating spreads that you can read with. If you're a beginner and you're just starting out, you can simply start by creating smaller spreads and move on to bigger and more complex spreads as you grow! This course is all practical process + application, so it can definitely grow with you and accommodate all stages of your tarot journey. 

3. How long does it take to complete this course? 

Depending on which "quest" you have decided to embark on, the hours may vary. Plus, this course is do-at-your-own-pace, so you can take it slow, speed it through, or go with the flow. Whatever you like! But just to give you an idea, If you dedicate 30-40 minutes a day, you can complete the Tarot Spread Machine Quest in about 5 days, the Tarot Pro's Quest in about 7 days, and the Deck Creator's Quest in about 7 days as well. 

4. What materials or technology do I need to complete this course? 

The course is hosted by Teachable, which is an online platform. You will need either a computer, a tablet, or a phone to be able to access this course. You will also need internet connection. There are printables in this course, so if you have access to a printer, you will be able to print all the PDF documents that are included in the course. This is not necessary if you just want to use the digital copy - as all of the PDF documents can be filled out digitally too. 

5. When does the course start and finish? 

Upon purchasing this course, you will gain instant access and you can start immediately. There is no designated start or finish date for this course as this course is do-it-at-your-own-pace. So you are free to begin right away and check back in whenever you feel like it. 

6. Will this course continue to update? Will I get access to those updates? 

Yes. This course will evolve based on things like student feedback and what I personally want + expect from the course. You will get access to all the future updates once you've purchased this course. 

7. What if I'm a total newbie? 

That's cool! This course is designed for brand new adventurers like you. It covers all the basics that you need to create amazing spreads for yourself so you have absolutely nothing to worry about! 

8. What if I already know how to create tarot spreads? 

That's cool, too! This course is designed to add to one's creative process and you are free to utilize this course in whatever way you see fit. The 4-Step Creation Process and all other spread creation strategies are all designed to expand your creative "headspace" + give you more options to make choices that reflect your creative intentions. It is highly adaptable and it's all about enabling you to be creative in your own way. 

9. Do you offer a refund policy if I don't like the course after i buy it?

Yes, I offer a 14-DAY refund policy! You may request a refund for up to 14 days after you purchase The Tarot Spread Machine. If you feel that this course isn't helping you with your spread-creation process at all - I will issue a 100% refund.

To be eligible for the refund, you must: 

1) Submit your request to kim@fablesden.com within 14 days of purchasing the course, AND
2) Submit your completed coursework for chapter 1 - chapter 4. This is to show that you have tried and experimented with the content and process provided in this course and it simply isn't working for you. If that is the case, I will offer you a refund. 

Unfortunately, no refunds will be provided for: 

  • Purchases that were made more than 14 days ago

  • Refund request made without any coursework submitted

10. Is the course worth it? 

Hell yeah! I created this course to completely EMPOWER your creative process with practical, easy-to-follow steps and TONS of study materials to help you MAXIMIZE your learning experience. From course content, hands-on examples, walkthroughs, notetakers, worksheets, checklists, reference sheets....when it come to teaching and creating something to help others level up, it's go big or go home for me, yo! 

11. Am I allowed to share & distribute your course in any way after purchasing? 

This course is created for your personal and noncommercial use and may not be shared, distributed, modified or re-purposed in any shape or form. Doing so is considered intellectual property theft and an infringement of my creative copyright. All materials attached to this course is for PERSONAL and NON-COMMERCIAL USE ONLY. Please keep that in mind when purchasing and engaging with the course. If you are discovered to be doing something shady with my materials (such as sharing, distributing, modifying and re-purposing without permission), you will get kicked out of the course without being offered a full refund and without any notice. In short, please don't steal my stuff.  

12. I have more questions that are not included in this Q&A

Please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail via kim@fablesden.com with all your inquiries. Or if you just want to say hi and tell me how dorky I look with that pencil photo. :P I personally think I look pretty epic and I'm on the road to ultimate glory.
