Hello, squad! After watching WAY too many bujo posts on YouTube, mostly by AmandaRachLee (oh. my. gosh. she’s. amazing.) I decided to make one of my own! This is technically my second month bullet journaling, but now I have more “expertise” and “experience” *notice the air quotes* on the topic, I am finally ready to share my journal to the world.
- Minimalism Art A5 Dotted Journal
- Crayola Supertips 100 count
- The Pilot Precise Rolling Ball
- A good ol’ classic pencil
- A good ol’ classic eraser
The Minimalism Art journal worked great for me, but I’ve heard that the Leuchtturm 1917 journal is also exceptional. Even though the Minimalism Art journal doesn’t have a built-in index, pre-numbered pages, and 2 bookmarks, (which the Leuchtturm journal has) it is half the price.
As for the Crayola Supertips, I personally bought the 100 count, but the 50 count is NOT short of colors. I only got the 100 count because it was on sale. Honestly, they are the most loyal markers ever, and they are inexpensive, especially in comparison to other bujo/art supplies. THEY ARE AMAZING.
This is my cover page! I’m really happy with how it turned out. In case you are wondering, I used faux calligraphy to write June on the second page. I am still practicing my regular calligraphy skills, so I thought it would look better if I did faux calligraphy just for now. (A tutorial on both will be coming out soon.)
Here is my traditional calendar layout/monthly log. In bottom left corner, I made a little blog stats rectangle, so I can track my follower count. I also drew some extra watermelons on the side because it was looking a little bit blank.
Next I have my monthly goals and money tracker spread. On my monthly goals page, I like to have a lot of room to write down my goals. I find that the more detailed my goals are, the more likely I am to complete them. Also, why would you want to squish your goals to one tiny little sidebar? As for the money tracker, I’ve always wanted to track my expenses (even though it’s boring) to become more wise with money. Because even the best of us splurge a bit too much sometimes…
Then, I have my mood tracker and habit tracker. At first I wasn’t going to do either of these because I thought I didn’t really need them, but why not? Nonetheless, this is my favorite spread and I am really happy with how this turned out, especially the mood tracker.
Please don’t notice how bad my faux calligraphy is on the “i” in habit…
As you can see, this is my blog post ideas and brain dump pages. Just like the monthly goals and money tracker page, I wanted to have a lot of space to “dump” (no pun intended) my ideas and thoughts.
And finally, I have my daily spread! I very pleased with how this turned out. The only thing is the I accidentally put the wrong dates on the little watermelons in the corner of the daily boxes. I also have a motivational quote by Pablo Picasso, you know, to survive the last week of school. By the way, the little sidebar on the left of the second page is my events for the week because I wanted to keep my to-do list/notes separate.
Thank you for planing with me! Do you like this months theme? Do you have a bullet journal as well? What could I have done better? Tell me in the comments section down below.
Keep on booking,
