Karen's Creations Memories Journal Giveaway - CLOSED

Ever since our trip to Asheville my mom and I have started the tradition of creating travel journals on all of our adventures.  I was home this weekend looking through her latest journal when the idea hit me!  Why not share one of her handmade journals with you through a giveaway from her Etsy Shop!!  I am so excited about this giveaway - these journals are so cute and have tons of pockets, tags, and spaces for documenting your travels or would work well as a daily journal or a themed scrapbook as well!

I have just started getting into crafting and need a journal to keep track of what I've done, the materials used, how it turned out, difficulty, etc. What could be more perfect for this than a handcrafted journal?

My sister and I are driving from Georgia to Iowa together to have a scrapbookers weekend with some of our cousins. We're each bringing old family pictures that we can scan and share. It should be great fun and what better way to document the trip and the weekend than in this beautiful little Journal. While I was at your mom's site I couldn't help but look around and spotted a couple more Journals that I loved. She is very talented.

My friend, Robyn, and I have a big trip planned at the end of August, and this would be perfect for note-taking, ephemeral gathering, and doodling. We always keep journals and "smashbooks," and one of the best parts is recording the funniest things each of us says! (Will post a link to your giveaway on Lefty Productions on Facebook.)

Karen has a great shop! I am going to visit her blog after I leave my comment here. :) I would probably use the journal for a trip my husband and I are planning to Texas soon. It's perfect. :D
Thank you for the opportunity!

I headed over to her Etsy shop. WOW! My husband and I have committed to travel more. Not the big expensive trips, but more to check out everything that's within 6 hours of our home. I'd love to journal our travels!

Last month I flew to Texas to visit my daughter and looks like I'll be flying to Korea to visit my son. This journal would be absolutely perfect.

TheLastOfNine said...

Checked out her shop and it has great journals, so many to choose from. There is always use for a journal, this travel one would be great for a trip we have planned with my in-laws this summer.

My teenage daughter and I are headed to Myrtle Beach in a couple months. This sweet journal would be a great way to document our time together (and a perfect keepsake for me to give to her when the trip is over).

I looked at all the journals in your mom's Etsy shop. Wow - very talented lady!

I've been thinking of a daily-ish journal. Since I am now in the over 50 crowd (;P) as of Easter Sunday, it seems like if I'm going to start one I better get on the ball!

I would use this journal for my wishlist of what I would like my house to look like and things that I would like to have to decorate my house. That way when someone asks what I want for a gift I will have it all in my journal.

Marly said...

Oh very cute! Great work Ladies! I would totally use this for our summer adventures this year. Last year we headed to Manitoulin Island in Ontario Canada and it was the most amazing time... were not 100% sure yet where this years ventures will bring us :D great give away i would be honored to use such a gorgeous journal :D

Magenta said...

These are cute and unique, If I won I would make a special album for my Dad who loves to travel, and traveled around the world when he spent 30 years in the Navy reserve

I follow your blog for all the great ideas!

Bhavana Patel said...

Just became a facebook follower, but I would like to use mine for the travels I had with my mum before she passed away!! To be able to put in photos's, postcards, and tickets would be great!!! they are all wonderful!!

Anonymous said...

I'd use the journal for all the little day trips we take over the next few months.
But I'm totally getting your Mommer's Hula Girl journal just for my own stuff-and-junk!

Lynda said...

Love the Fashion Diva journal....it would be the perfect grad gift for my niece....entering college...to journal her adventures....lyndaoflakeland.blogspot.com

Christy said...

It was difficult for me to choose a favorite, I like all of them. I like journals and things like this to give as gifts to new mom's, old mom's and even my children. When it's for my children I will fill them with things they have done over the year and give it to them on their birthday. These are far cuter than anything I could do on my own. Well done! :)

Lynda said...

Love this journal. We'll be taking a trip out west this fall and this would be the perfect journal to take with me to document the journey. Love your shop!

Mommy said...

I would use this journal for my thoughts on being new mom...

I would use this journal to document my daughter's travels through her Senior year of high school. So many adventures ahead of her. (This goes with the previous mamasaurus. rex comments where I forgot to say what I would use the journal for.
