For Colette's Journal, I started with an idea that I created in my Silhouette Studio Software. This is how I looked in my head. The weird looking thing on the top is a bow when it's folded.
I have used the Silhouette Studio software do "design my layouts" for all 3 circle journals. I like to use this method to get the scale right for the individual elements.
I will post my journal soon. It's still working it's way back to me.
