The making memories journaling books are one of the best new products on the market in my opinion. Why didn't they think of this sooner? It comes in different shapes and styles and all you do is rip it out of the book and add it to your page. It is that simple! You can cut of the frayed edge or just leave it for a nice edgy look. If you struggle with journaling (as I do) this will make your life a heck of a lot easier. Go ahead and buy one today. You won't regret it!

This is a must have for those who write on their layouts. I do like to journal in my handwriting so I just love these. They add elouquence to your layouts and give the perfect backdrop for your journaling. I have two of them now in brown and black. I found myself trying them on each of my layouts.
I would "highly" recommend this product to everyone! It is a must have and well worth the price.
I always have such a hard time fitting in my journaling and/or finding new ways to add it in. I always feel like it's just "stuck" in there somewhere. These are the perfect way to add my journaling while still adding to the LO! I love these things!!!! I've even traced them on CS and had perfect shapes in whatever color!

I love this Making Memories journaling booklet! I love that it's black and white, it goes with so many patterns and papers. These are a perfect size to use on LOs where you need a journaling spot or a place for a title. I love the different die cut shapes!

I jsut came across these and I love them. I am always looking for interesting things to use for journaling. These have so much potential for not only journaling spots but also for decorative elements on layouts. I will be keeping a supply of these on hand.
I got everything from the 5th ave line for a specific project I'm working on (not that I didn't have most of it already). But I got to say I love the versatility of these journal blocks! I think they would go great on most any LO or card!
These are fab for adding journaling to your pages or even tucking them under a photo and putting your title on top of them. You can also trace the designs onto cardstock to mount them or use them on different paper - very nice.
I was surprised how many sheets of each that you get. These little sheets are so stylish and look great on any page -- the black and white theme is so versatile. These are hard to find, so snatch them up while you can!

These journaling cards are great and I've used them on several layouts already. Sometimes I leave the torn edge from the binding and other times I'll cut it off with my trimmer depending on the look I am going for.
I bought this on impulse and totally love it! My lo's are getting simpler and I love the style these little pages add with my journaling. I am a believer in hand written journaling and this makes it so easy.
Use the album as assembled, or tear pages out to add to a layout. The six different edge styles make this very fun and unique. Lots of space for photos/journaling.

These are so cute but just to let you know they do have a small line of blue or pink. And I think some others but still very cute!

The neutral tones of this journaling pad blend and enhance lots of colors. They are perfect additions for adding handwritten journaling to a layout. The variety of shapes included provide lots of options for use. I like the torn look to the edge; however, they are not easy to pull off the spiral which is the only negative for this product.

This is a great product. I bought it for someone else and I have to buy another one because I have already used two sheets out of it. I really like it. The only think I do not like is that the wirebound is really tight and the pages like to stick together, other than that it is so cool.

Initially, I was happy to receive this journaling book. I like Making Memories products and am always satisfied. I used a sb.com coupon to get this book for free with my order. Though the pages are very pretty, they each had a small ink spot on them. I believe that it was part of a bad batch. Perhaps the reason MM was giving them away. Because of the ink spots, I am not sure if I will use the pages for journaling yet. I may use them for matting only. I placed two of the same together, and they make a very nice mat.
It looks quite nice, but when I tried turning the pages they were stuck together next to the binding, and not because of the wire, it was if they were semi-glued together. Also some of the pages had marks from wet ink as if manufactured too quickly. I was disappointed.
