My Gratitude Journal 2018

Hi there!

As the year starts to wind down, we all are starting to -in a way or other- gather memories of what, who, when, where of our lives.  For me that means starting my Gratitude Journal as we celebrated Thanksgivings here in Canada on October 8th.   This means for the next 30 days i will be adding a new entry a day in my TN.  This year I will use a combination of prompts from Feed Your Craft and the ones I had created for my BPC class, and depending on the day, I might just have to create a new prompt.    Here i a quick overview of the first week of my journal:


The cover was created using Feed Your Craft's  Giving Thanks  and Autumn Vibes stamp sets, The Minty Octopus's  Norwegian Wood digital collection and distress inks.

Day 1:  Thankful to GOD

Created using Citrus Twist Kits October Grace box and free cut apart sheet, as well as some Vicki Boutin Art Crayons

Day2:  Thankful for ME

This was created using past Citrus Twist Kits (Grace Box and Scrapbook kits) and the Giving Thanks stamps set from Feed Your Craft.

Day 3: Thankful for PARTNER (my husband)

I used pieces from the September Citrus Twist Kits PL kit  and stamps from Feed Your Craft (Ariel Alphabet and Giving Thanks)

Day 4:  Thankful for my FAMILY

I like to keep pieces from past kits or collections in a small container for this project,  SO a lot of the embellishments come from past Citrus Twist Kits collections, and the papers from the October 2018 PL kit.

Day 5:  Thankful for my KIDS

I pulled some digital journal cards for this page, it comes from In A Creative Bubble Autumn 3x8 card pack, and some free digital elements from Citrus Twist kits.  The stamp set is from Citrus Twist Kits -September 2018 TN stamp-

Day 6: Thankful for a SPECIAL PERSON (my mom)

I used some of the October and September Scrapbook kits from Citrus twist Kits to create this page, as well as the free element printable sheet.

Day 7:  Thankful for HOME

This page was created using the September and August Citrus Twist Kits scrapbook and add on kits, and Studio Calico stamps.

Day 8:  Thankful for REAL LIFE

This page was created using the October PL and Scrapbook Kit from Citrus Twist Kits, and a past add on stamp also from CTK.

I will  be back next week with to show you how the journal is taking shape.

Take care!


  1. Your notebook is off to a beautiful start, Nathalie! So much inspiration that I want to remember, but I'm especially taken by Day 3 and the fold-over photo and how you aligned your journaling! Excited to see more! xo

  2. If you aren't already doing so, practicing mindfulness can be a powerful tool for making positive changes in your life. It's a way of life, after all. Adopting a mindfulness practice is one way to reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety, improve attention span, steer clear of burnout, and calm the mind in trying circumstances.
