Gratitude Documented with Shanna Noel...only at Studio Calico

You know how you have scrapbookers (or bloggers, or chefs, or dog-groomers or whatever) that you absolutely adore and you make sure to read everything they write and pore over every layout they make and if they lived in the same town as you you'd find out where they do their grocery shopping so you could "accidentally" run into them every week?

Or is that just me?

Anyway...for me, that scrapbooker is Shanna Noel. Her work is ah-mazing.

Amazing.


Last year Shanna had a super-fun "class" that she offered on her blog. Gratitude Documented was all about...you got it...documenting what you are grateful for.

I happened to stumble upon that post around the time she was just getting started with GD and I immediately fell in love with the concept. I found a pre-made mini in my stash and got started right away with my documenting. It was the first (and only, to date) day-by-day mini I've actually completed. Like, completely completed.

Well, this year, Studio Calico is offering Shanna's Gratitude Documented as a full-blown class.

And I canNOT WAIT!

SC has knocked it out of the park with classes this year...and this one will be no exception.

Here's what SC has to say about the class:

GRATITUDE | DOCUMENTED

It’s easy to feel content during the holidays, but do you remember to be grateful all year long? In Gratitude Documented, Shanna Noel will guide you through a series of prompts, videos, and more so that recording the seasons of gratitude from your life will be easy and enjoyable. Reflect on and recognize the themes of family, love, and personal triumph that resonate with you. Let’s come together and remember that there is so much to be grateful for.

And, along with Shanna's easy-to-understand teaching style & creative inspiration, you will receive:

  • 3 videos from Shanna (planning & getting started, bringing your notes and inspiration together into an album & adding the finishing touches).
  • 5 prompt PDFs that encourage you to reflect on different areas of your life and what you're thankful for.
  • An in-depth look at Shanna's tag style mini album.
  • Ideas from Jamie Waters for adapting Shanna's ideas to a WRMK 4x4in album.
  • Inspiration PDFs with more ideas from Amy Hawthorne, Lexi Bridges and Chantal Philippe.
  • Access to a class message board and gallery, where you can share and learn with your teacher and fellow students.
  • Weekly challenges to inspire you to use what you've learned.
PLUS! These super-cool extras: (printable journal cards, digital stamps & cut-files)

Not really the student type? You can still get the products Shanna designed for the class...

I'm so excited to begin another season of intentionally remembering...and documenting...all that I have to be grateful for...

...hope to see you in class...

Walden...the Studio Calico November Kits...my sneaks

I can't believe I'm typing "November."

November.

already?

ca-razy.

seriously crazy.

The only thing that makes the scary-fast passage of time even slightly manageable is that it's almost time for the Studio Calico November Reveal.

November's Walden kits are absolutely gorgeous. Gorgeous. Just take a look at this mood board...

...beautiful colors, right?

And here are my layout sneaks...I hope I've done this kit justice...


Main Kit + Printables



Main Kit ONLY


Main Kit + Baker Bridge Add-On


Pine Hill Add-On ONLY

I really think these may be my favorite kits ever. I know I say that pretty much every month, but it's always true. They get better and better with each one.

If you're new to the whole Studio Calico Kit/Sneak/Reveal process or to scrapbooking/crafting in general, you can go here to learn all about it...

BUT, for just a quick run-down - you'll want to remember...

The full reveal of all the kits and add-ons is the 27th of each month at noon Eastern for subscribers and midnight Eastern for non-subscribers. Join us in the Studio Calico Live Chat room for the countdown (1 hour before both reveals)!

For more sneaks search #scsneaks on Instagram...or check out the sneak feed on SC...
