Plan With Me: April 2019 Bullet Journal Setup

IMG-5370

Greetings bookish friends! Today I will be showing you my bullet journal plan with me for April! I decided to do blue butterflies and sparkles this month.

Here’s my cover page! Since the butterflies are so intricate and detailed, I only drew a couple. On the left side, I have a quote. I wasn’t sure if I could pull of this theme well, but it ended up looking great! 🦋✨

This is my monthly calendar page! I doodled a couple of butterflies around and it and did some calligraphy with a little bit of blending on the upper right page. I accidentally drew some extra yellow dots, so I just wrote the days of May, the next month.

Next I have my mood tracker! I made a giant butterfly and am going to color it in this month. Each section of the butterfly represents a different day. On the right page is a chart to track how much reading, writing, and blogging I’m doing in April. I want to try to read 7 books this month, write 30 pages, and make 4 blog posts.

And lastly, here is my weekly spread! I wanted to keep it simple but also added some butterflies and sparkles for some detail.

Plan With Me: 2019 Bullet Journal Set​up

img-3211

It’s finally 2019!

Yay yay yay! I am super excited to share with you some of my bullet journal spreads for 2019! I got the Scribbles That Matter Pro for Christmas and so far, I am really liking it. It is a major improvement from my old bullet journal, as the pages are much thicker. I apologize for this post coming out so late, there’s just been a lot on my mind lately. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

For the cover page, I made 2019 in a black marker using the Tombow Fudenoske Brush Pen and adding some white highlights using the Sakura Gelly Roll White Pen. On the next page, my yearly view spread, I made a calculated risk to cover the entire page in black marker and use the white pen over it. I am happy with how both these pages turned out!

My future log is looking pretty blank now, but soon it will be filled up! This is a pretty easy and simple spread, and although it is tedious to write in all the dates for the months, anyone can do it. If you are trying to recreate this spread or something similar, I recommend stretching this spread out into two pages so you have more space to write.

Next, I have my New Years resolutions. Usually, I don’t set goals for the New Year, but I wanted to push myself to improve without it being stressful or me slacking off. So, I quickly made a spread for this! I think that writing it down on my bullet journal will be more effective than just saying I’ll do my resolutions because it will constantly remind me about my goals. Sometimes, we forget about our goals for the New Year, and they slowly fade away until we can’t even remember what they were in the first place. But this year, I promise that won’t happen!

And lastly, I have an almost blank spread where I can write down all the awesome memories and experiences that happen in 2019. Then, when 2020 pops out of nowhere, I can take a moment to sit down and reflect on the year that just flew by.

Plan With Me: October 2018 (Pumpkin theme)

IMG_1552.jpg

Greetings bookish friends! October is just around the corner, so are my bullet journal spreads for the month of October. I’m really happy with how these turned out, and I’m thinking that this may be my new favorite theme! Autumn is my favorite season, and I love pumpkin pie! *Who doesn’t?*

I will also be posting this on my newly begun bookstagram/artstagram account. The username is @katiethatbookishgirl. Please help support this blog by giving it a follow!

Supplies:

  • Minimalism Art A5 Dotted Journal (Any dotted journal works)
  • Crayola Supertips (I have the 100 count, but most people use the 50 count)
  • A pen
  • A pencil
  • An eraser

If you want me to be honest, I am excited to change into a new bullet journal in 2019 because I’m finding that the pages in the Minimalism Art A5 Dotted Journal have a lot of ghosting. It might have just been that I colored in the pumpkins with my supertips too quick, or that I may need thicker pages for my next bullet journal.

Sorry if you see any marker bleeding through the pages!

First is my cover page/quote. Overall, I love how this spread turned out and think the quote fits nicely with the theme.

Next in my monthly log. I am also really happy with the end result and think it ties in with the theme. I have a little sidebar box on the left which is my social media growth tracker. It was inspired by Amanda Rach Lee (my favorite youtuber). If you aren’t already following her, go check her out she is amazing!

Here is my habit tracker and money tracker. (Also inspired by Amanda Rach Lee, by the way). Although filling out trackers can sometimes be boring, I think that I will put these to use. I also doodled a cute little pumpkin patch at the bottom of the page, which I absolutely love!

And lastly is my weekly spread. I decided to do a dutch door style spread and think it looks perfect! This was my first time trying this style of weekly spreads, and so far I’m really liking it. It’s very functional for me because I can look at my weekly events while having my to-do/homework list out. I will definitely be doing this spread more in the future.
