If circle journals are new to you then basically you make a book ... decorate the covers ... add a few pages of your own work ... enough pages for all the contributors in your circle and then a sign-in section at the back ... you then forward the journal onto the next person in your circle and each month you get a new journal to work on ... depending on the number of people in your circle will decide when you get your original, completed book, in return.
This particular journal is a stamping Circle Journal ... so you also enclose a stamp for people to use on your pages ... How cool is that?

What I used:-
Bind-it-All; 1/2" Round-it-All; Rivet setter tool; 5" X 7" Canvas covers; 1 1/4" Antique Silver Owires; Perfect Closure; water colour paper; White tissue paper; Idea-ology tickets; Tim Holtz doodads; Claudine Hellmuth Matte multi medium; P.inc. Butternut scrapbook paint; Ranger jet black archival ink; Ancient page bordeaux ink; Ranger distress inks in spiced marmalade and mustard seed, Ranger rock candy crackle paint; Pro markers; red gems and dymo tape; Artistic Outpost send in the clowns stamp set; Tim Holtz harlequin background stamp set; Dymo tape gun.
Go on ... sign up for a circle journal ... you know you want to!
Note, with this particular style of Perfect Closure you can add customization to match the project. Here I added some Dymo labeling to the buckle. You can also add in a tiny piece of your patterned paper or a coordinating cardstock to further coordinate with the project! No clowning!
