November Bullet Journal Set-Up with October Monthly Recap

Hi guys! I’m super excited for this month’s theme, and had sooo much fun setting it up! I’m doing poppies, and using a couple different shades of red. However, I’m going for more of a scrapbookish look, since I found an amazing paper pad with tons of poppy designs in it. Hope you like it!

Here’s my October Monthly Recap. The gold is just so pretty and compliments everything really well;))

So this is my title page for November! I hand drew a lot of poppies, but cut some out from my paper pad as well. I also used some washi tape and a ripped-paper effect for extra pizazz.

My calendar spread turned out super pretty as well;) I used paper on the corners this time, so that looks cool. I’m also loving the look of writing on white paper and cutting it out to paste it in my journal.

This really cool black and white poppy paper is a feature in my trackers section! I LOVE IT! I’m also doing something different for my mood tracker this month; I’ll be using a bar graph format. The higher the bar, the better my mood.

I decided that I did need a blog planner next to my gratitude log;) It will help me stay more organized when it comes to posting.

I only included two days in my first weekly spread, so I covered the other half of the page with more poppy paper. I’ll probably turn the page opposite this one into a quote page.

That’s all for now! I love how these spreads turned out, and I’m having lots of fun playing around with my pretty papers and washi tapes. See you later!

October Bullet Journal Set-Up with September Monthly Recap

Hi guys! I figured that it was about time to post my October bullet journal set-up, considering that it’s the last day of September;) My October theme is magic, but not Harry Potter style magic, more of a crystal ball, full moon kind of magic. I used two shades of purple, as well as metallic gold and silver gel pens for the magical sparkles that are scattered around the pages. I’m super glad with the way that this month turned out, especially because my calligraphy is on point! I also got to use a bunch of cute quotes about the future this month. Do you know how hard it is to find quotes about the ocean that are cute and not too long? Really hard! Also, drawing waves on every page last month was a little time consuming, even if it looked really pretty. Anyways, here’s my October set-up;)))

This is my monthly recap;)) I’m going to miss the blues!

This is my October title page! The focal point is the crystal ball, around which I drew some really cute magical doodles. I used a can of chickpeas to trace a perfect circle for the crystal ball- chickpeas are just awesome in every way! The gold, silver and purple work really nicely together on this page and my writing turned out great:)))

I messed up the order of the days on the calendar, so I had to black them out and rewrite them in silver. But it’s okay, it looks good that way! I decided not to include a blog planner this month, because I found I wasn’t using it. Although I did keep my goals section and write a good quote.

One thing that I haven’t changed this year is my habit tracker, and that’s because I just find it very easy to look at and use. However, I do like playing around with my mood trackers, and this month I used a crystal ball format. I’m also really into the look of drawing a border around my pages; I just think it lends something interesting to the spread.

Next, as per usual, is my gratitude log and quote page. Crystal balls are the focal point of both;) The future is bright, my friends!

Finally, here’s my first weekly spread of the month. I’ve actually never done a spread like this before, but I saw one like it on AmandaRachLee’s youtube channel, and so I thought I’d give it a try. It looks so good! And I love the amount of space that it gives me to plan my week!

That’s my set-up for October! It’s hard to believe that I only have three more months left with this journal. I’ve been loving the Leuchtturm 1917 journal because it has just the right amount of smooth, good sized pages, two book marks and a pocket in the back. Plus, it’s pretty reasonably priced. I think that I’m going to use another one of these next year as well. Have a good week you guys!

September Bullet Journal Set-Up with August Monthly Recap

Hey people;) Summer has finally come to an end, which means that it’s time to set up my September bullet journal. I set up a poll on Instagram to see which colours that you guys wanted me to use this month, and the majority chose blues. So I’m doing an ocean theme for September! I used a mix of wavy designs and seashell doodles to make a beautiful spread. Hope you guys like it!

First, here’s my August Monthly Recap. It turned out really nicely;)

This is my title page! Splitting it along the diagonal gives it a unique feel. I love how the waves look, and the seashells and jellyfish look super cute. On the opposite page I wrote a quote saying “Seas the Day”.

I think that my calendar looks great as well. The font that I used this month was kind of a curly handwriting, which is more of a playful nautical style. As usual, I have spots for writing down my goals and blog ideas on the side.

I absolutely LOVE my habit and mood trackers this month! The doodles are just so pretty! I’ll colour in each seashell according to the legend at the bottom. I didn’t number my habit tracker, but I don’t really think that I need to.

Next I have a gratitude log and a quote page. I especially like the way that the quote page looks, with the frame going through the waves.

Last but not least, the first weekly spread of the month. Now that school is starting, I’m going to be doing a lot more double-paged spreads so I have more room to write things down.

There’s my September spreads! Moving into the school year, I think that I’m going to continue to post three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It’ll be a challenge to keep up, but I really enjoy creating new content for you guys.

Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!

Yours Truly,

August Bullet Journal Set-Up with July Monthly Recap

Hi guys! I can’t believe that we’re already halfway through the summer and that it’s time to set up my August Bullet Journal layout! This month I went with a travel theme (partly inspired by AmandaRachLee again). I also used a bunch of pictures from a page-a-day calendar which had the title “1000 Places to See Before You Die”, and drew little frames around them so that they look like polaroid pictures. I used three different shades of brown in this spread, so it looks kind of vintage. Hope you like it!

Here’s my July Monthly Recap before we get into August. It hasn’t changed from previous months;)

My title page is a little but minimalistic, as there isn’t a ton going on. I drew a suitcase, a compass rose, an airplane and a polaroid camera, using hues of brown. There’s also a bunch of travel pictures from that calendar, which look cool. My quote for this month is “I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list.” which I totally identify with because I love to travel!

This might be one of my favourite calendar spreads of all time. All of the doodles and the drop shadows just look so good! In one corner of the calendar I drew some lines to make it look like a map, and I also included my usual goals and blog ideas section.

I drew my habit tracker to look like a polaroid, which I thought was cute. For my mood tracker, there’s a circle divided into 31 parts so I can colour one each day, with a compass in the middle.

Here’s my gratitude log, and another page that I labelled “Places to Go”. I thought that it might be fun to make a kind of travel bucket list, that I can look back on later and see if I actually went to all of those places.

And finally here’s my first weekly spread. Because there’s only three days in the first calendar week, I only used one page and made the other page a quote page.

That’s all for my August Set-Up! I hope you have a great month, and I’ll see you on Wednesday;))

Yours Truly,

July Bullet Journal Set Up with June Monthly Recap

Wow! I can’t believe that we’re already halfway through the year! I’m excited though because summer is here and it’s time for a bit of a reset. Today I’ll be showing you my July Bullet Journal Set Up, as well as some other pages in my journal. My theme this month is monarch butterflies, inspired by AmandaRachLee;) It turned out really pretty, and the orange and yellow colour palette is summery and fun. In addition, I have my June Monthly Recap, and a Mid-Year Review. Let’s get into it!

My monthly recap hasn’t changed from previous months;)

Something I decided to add in this year was a Mid-Year Review page. I have a quote on the left, and in the right I’m going to do a bit of a reflection to reset and refocus for the second half of the year.

And here’s my title page for July! I absolutely love the butterflies. They’re not super hard to draw, AmandaRachLee has a great tutorial on her YouTube channel. I added some detail with my silver gel pen, and used some dots to fill up the empty space. My colours for this month are a light yellow Zebra Mildliner, and a deeper yellow and an orange Crayola SuperTips marker, so three colours. Inside the butterflies I went from light to dark, just like a monarch. There are so many beautiful quotes about butterflies that I can use this month, so I’m really excited!

My calendar is pretty much the same as in past months. I drew more butterflies, a goals section, and a space to write down blog post ideas, now that herb month is over and I don’t need a whole page for that!

My habit and mood trackers turned out nice as well. For my mood tracker, I drew a big butterfly, and I’ll colour each numbered section in according to the legend at the bottom.

Here’s my gratitude log;) I also included a Summer bucket list, because I want to write down cool things to do this summer.

To keep in shape during the summer, I drew up a workout schedule! Let’s see if I actually stick to it though😂 I also drew a quote page that is kind of my mantra for the summer; to keep a positive mindset.

Lastly, we have my first weekly spread. Im trying to keep each week on one page, so that I have more room for fun stuff like quotes and bucket lists;) This should work out because I’m not very busy in the summer.

That’s all folks! I’m looking forward to coming up with summer recipes, reading lists and bullet journal ideas to share with you over the next couple of months!

Yours Truly,

MyDayIsBooked;))
