Recollections Journaling Cards & A Giveaway


This past weekend, I hit up Michaels and found a whole bunch of packs of 3x4 journaling cards from the Recollections line. I couldn't resist them, and settled on buying just 5 packs. They were on sale for $2.50 (for a 50 pack!).

The one thing that bothered me is that you couldn't see all the cards in the pack, so I took pictures of each one and thought I'd post for you, so you can see before you buy!







How cute are these?! I love the birthday ones, I think they'd be awesome on a greeting card, or even attached to a gift package.

Now, the journaling cards come 50 in a pack - 5 each of 10 designs. There's no way I'll use them all, so I am giving away one of each of the 50 cards to one lucky reader.

Update: Giveaway is now CLOSED.

Giveaway Details:

US Residents ONLY.

Leave a comment on this blog telling me which card in the photos above is your very favorite, and you'll be entered into the giveaway.

Winner will receive a set of 50 different journaling cards from the Recollections collection - one of each that you see pictured above.

Entries close Sunday, March 3, 2013, at midnight EST.

Be sure to check the blog on Monday, March 4, when I'll post the winner. I'll need your name and address so please make sure to check the blog or subscribe by email so you see the post revealing the winner!

  2. The one that reads: "Everyday may not be a good day, but there is something good in every day." [That saying has always stuck in my mind from the first time I ever read it :)

  9. I really love the card, "That it will never come again is what makes this day so sweet." I like that because my 3 year old is growing up so darn fast and many days are hectic and chaotic, but I'm desperately trying to appreciate even the hard days because I'll never get them back.

    Thanks for showing these. They are super fun!

  11. So hard to choose! Fave would be "Best Day Ever." Or "Live it Up." Or "Today is the Day" (and now I've got that praise song in my head...) They're all fabulous! Thanks for the generous give-away!

  13. I like the cards that you get to check the boxes. I especially like the "A Good Life is When..." card. Those cards remind me of the Knock Knock brand. So fun!

  14. Oh, this is soooo hard to choose! I guess my favorite is the silly note one because my kids and nieces and nephews are always saying such funny things! Thank you very much for the chance!

  15. I think I like the one that says, "Every day may not be a good day, but there is something good in every day." I think it is not a comment that is expressed enough.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like "It's all the little moments that make life a BIG adventure". Now I'm going to have to go to Michael's- I had no idea they had anything like this. Thanks for the chance to win!

  43. Okay, why not. :) My favorites are the ones that start with "The Little Things" (with that one being my favorite overall). I figure, if I don't spill over Kit's album into the second binder I got, I'll start an actual Project Life, and those look to be amazing. :)

    Awesome giveaway!!

  45. What a fabulous set of cards, THANK you for the opportunity to win a complete set. And I'm with you ... I like to see ALL the contents of a package. My favorite is the orange card saying "Is there anything better than an everyday kind of day?".

    ReplyDelete
  46. These are so cute. I love the sentiment about this day will never come again.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like the one that says..."this is how the story goes". Wouldn't it be fun to get several family members to tell about one event from THEIR point of view?

    ReplyDelete
  48. they're all so cheery, but i think the one i like best is "the little things really are the big things". and thank you for such a cool giveaway :)

  50. I really like the "It's Important to enjoy the everyday" with the journaling underneath. I do a lot of everyday moments, and that one is great.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Those are super cute! My favorite would have to be the one that says, "Every day may not be a good day, but there is something good in every day." - This goes along with my 365 project I'm doing this year, in which my goal was to capture a moment worth remembering each day. PS- thanks for sharing, that's kind.

  56. I Love these! My friend had these at a retreat and was using them in her Disney Album (PL style). I think I like the "Say Cheese" the best, b/c my kiddo's are ALWAYS saying that when we take their picture. Thanks for the chance to win!
