April 2020 Bullet Journal Set-Up

March just kind of flew by, and some really crazy stuff went down this month. Atleast I had my bullet journal to keep my busy though. I let you guys decide what my theme would be this month, and I worked hard to try and do your pick of blue dragonflies justice. I actually really like the way that this month turned out. It feels very springy and fresh. Finding inspiration for this month was kind of hard, because I didn’t want the dragonflies to look to childish or simple. But I saw a beautiful spread by @plinthced on instagram, and used that as my reference point. My colours are very light turquoise and blue, because I wanted it to feel very light dainty. Here’s my April 2020 Bullet Journal Set-Up!

Here’s my title page;)) I used a calligraphic font (again) that really suits this theme. For the dragonflies, I used a broze metallic gel pen and blue fineliners. I’m also going back to using borders around the page because I think it looks really sharp! There are some dots to fill in empty space, and a quote opposite the title page.

I LOVE my calendar for this month. There’s tons of dragonflies and I’m liking this bronzy colour. I haven’t really ever switched up this layout, because I find that it works well for me.

Next are my trackers and logs for this month. I actually liked the sort of graph thing that I used to track my mood and productivity last month, and so I’m using that system again, along with my OG habit tracker. On the opposite page I have a gratitude log for April;))

Finally, I had an extra page since I combined my mood and habit trackers, so I used it to make a schedule/routine thing for me to follow now that I don’t have school. I think it’ll help me to be more productive and the structure will be nice. I dug up the bullet joirnal stencils that I got when I started journaling a couple of years ago to put little icons next to the items on my routine. Since the first week of april only has four days, I used this final page to do a one page spread, which turned out well.

That’s all for April! I will definitely be sharing a dragonfly doodle tutorial on instagram, along with my March Monthly Recap. Hope you liked my set-up this month, and I’ll see you on Wednesday!;))

March 2020 Bullet Journal Set-Up

It’s time to start planning for March! I always use green for this month- I don’t know why it just feels weird not to;)) My March theme is jungle leaves, and it looks amazing! I used four different colours of green, and my white gel pen. These doodles were super easy to do, and I’ll be posting a tutorial, along with my February Monthly Recap, on my Instagram page. Hope you like it!

This is my title page. I drew a frame of different leaves around the word “March”. I was going to outline the leaves in black, but I thought that would be too dark. Plus, I drew some leaves that I couldn’t really outline, so I decided to go over top of the leaves with my white gel pen, and I love the look of it! On the opposite page I wrote a quote about adventure, because I feel like you go on adventures in jungles.

Next I have my calendar:)) There are some more leaves growing out of it, plus another quote and a space for goals and a monthly focus.

I really liked the habit tracker set up last month, because it made it easier for me to see which days I completed which habits. I’m trying something new with my mood tracker though. It’s a graph style, which I like because it gives me lots of moods to choose from. I also incorporated a sleep, productivity and water intake tracker into the graph, which I’m excited to use!

Here’s my gratitude log and blog ideas spread. I love the leaves coming from the sides of the pages! I used paper to do a quote at the bottom.

Finally, this is my first weekly spread of the month. It took me a while to draw all of those leaves, but I think it was worth it!

That’s my set-up for March! I’m super excited for this month. See you Friday;))

Handmade Valentines

Hello there! Valentine’s Day is coming up, and it’s the perfect time to show your appreciation for your friends and family;) I love making homemade cards because they show how much you care! These cards are super cute and easy to make. I used the rose doodle from my February bullet journal theme, and different coloured card stock. Here’s how to make them!

First off, here’s how to draw these cute roses. You start with a circle, then draw lines around the perimeter, getting closer and closer to the center to create a rose. You can also add some leaves;)

For this first card, I used some red card stock and drew a rose border. I then used my brush pen to write out “Happy Valentine’s Day”, did some accents with a white gel pen, and drew a few extra roses.

On the nest card, I wrote out “Orange You Glad You’re My Friend?” on some paper and glued it onto orange card stock. Valentine’s Day is the best for puns!!

I love the heart on this yellow card;) I used the phrase “Be My Valentine”, and drew yellow roses at the top and bottom.

Finally, my favourite card! I drew blue roses in the corners and another heart at the bottom. The phrase on this one is “I’m Blue Without You”.

Those are all of the Valentines that I made! There are endless combinations of phrases and colours, and if I make any more cool ones I’ll keep you updated on Instagram!

4 Weekly Bullet Journal Spreads

Hi guys! During my two years of bullet journaling, I’ve tried out many different weekly spreads. Some of them work really well for me, and others don’t. It’s a good idea to experiment with a bunch of different ones so that you find the layouts that help you to be the most productive. Today I decided to share 4 of my favourite weekly spreads that bring organization into my life, and look pretty too;))

I like layouts that give me a lot of space, and this one certainly does that. I had plenty of room to plan out my week, and was still able to include a quote at the bottom.

This layout is probably my favourite, and I’ve used it almost every month since I discovered it. It gives you lots of space to write down daily tasks, and room along the sides to include quotes, to-do lists, or anything else your heart desires. This layout is also really simple to draw and is easily customizable, working well with many different themes.

This one is an oldie but a goodie! I love the incorporation of the theme in this layout, and the amount of space it gives;)

This layout doesn’t give a ton of room, but I like how much space there is at the bottom to include productivity trackers and quotes.

So those are my favourite spreads! I hope you try them out and see if they work for you;))

February 2020 Bullet Journal Set-Up

Hey there!! I’m so excited about this month’s theme, and I know I kept you guys guessing what it was on Instagram- it’s roses! For February I used pale pink and green to create a simple rose theme that I think is really pretty😍😍 I especially love the way that the title page looks. This month I reverted back to doing a lot of calligraphy (I just can’t stay away), and am also using my white gel pen to do accents on the black writing. The rose style that I chose to use is EXTREMELY easy to draw, and I’ll be posting a tutorial on my Instagram story so be sure to check that out;)

This year, I’ve decided to do something a bit different with my Monthly Recap/memories/reflection sections by combining them all into a collage. I like this idea a lot because it’s less structured and way more fun to make! I haven’t had a chance to finish this spread yet, so I’ll post it next week on my social media;) Hope you like my spreads for February!

First off, here’s my title page. I did a wreath around the word “February”, and did a cute rose border around the outside of the page, as well as surrounding the quote on the opposite page. I like be the simplicity of this spread, and the white accents in the calligraphy really make it pop. My quote this month is “Stop and Smell the Roses”, because I think that it’s important to slow down and enjoy the little things;))

I continued with the use of flower wreaths and borders when doing my calendar spread for this month;) I included a goals and focus section again to help with productivity, and I did a drop shadow on my calendar which I haven’t done in a while. This spread is also fairly minimal.

I switched up my habit tracker yet again! This is a popular layout that I’ve seen all over different bullet journaling accounts, and so I thought I’d give it a try. It’s more of a calendar layout, and so each day I’ll fill in the box that corresponds to that day on the calendar if I completed that habit. It’s confusing. On the opposite page I drew out a rose for each day, and I’ll colour them in accordingly the legend on the bottom to track my mood.

The last spreads before my first weekly spread are my gratitude log and blog planner;) I used more wreaths and roses, and also switched up the layout of my planner to see if it works better this way.

Lastly, here’s my first weekly spread of the month! This is a layout that I’ve used quite a few times in the past and it works really well for me. I was also able to include a quote and to-do section for this week;)

That’s all for my February Set-Up! I made sure that I posted it early this time so you guys can use it as inspiration for your bullet journals. Have a great weekend!!

Yours Truly,
