Scrapchat Circle Journal

Over at Scrapchat there's a Circle Journal (CJ) swap about to start. Everyone chooses a theme for a little (no bigger than A5 or half a sheet of A4 paper) album to send round in turn to a number of people in the swap. I've chosen "Dimensions of Life - What Matters Most". I completed the title page, instruction page and sign in page tonight and thought I'd show you what it's like here. I need to finish a double page layout on what matters most to ME before I send it on to others. And I still don't know how I'm going to bind it, given that others may choose thicker than paper items to do their layouts. Any suggestions? I thought of a nice round shoe lace and punched holes....

All the papers, inks, ribbons and stamps are from Stampin' Up! and the brads are from lots of other sources - mainly lovely blogging friends! The large 'W' on the title page is from Creative Memories.

What a neat idea. You could also bind it with big notebook rings through the punched holes and then decorate the rings with ribbon scraps.

thanks Susan for your CNY well wishes ! You are right on about taking care ! last year's was a nitemare & this year ? who knows ! it's either the best or worst of times or both ! sad to say !

& o BTW if you would like to share more ideas on challenges do email me pleeze !

If at all I continue on a regular basis cos the other option is on an ad hoc basis , I may think of making Surprising Saturday rather than a Weds ( more rare ? ) a regular feature for a start once in 3 weeks - maybe 2 wks is also a bit much for me to handle ! lol & once a mth might be too long for the participants ! but I think I would not stick to cards only challenge so if you've got ideas you havent seen elsewhere & would care to share with me let me know dear ! lol

thanks much ! Pearl
