When you were choosing my theme for September on Instagram you voted for books, and I’m excited to give this theme a try.
However, I still really wanted to create a back to school/stationery theme and I thought it’d be perfect to create one in my work journal.
So below are the pages I created in this theme, as well as a Plan With Me video at the end of the post.
And if you want to create a stationery theme in your Bullet Journal, be sure to check my post 11+ Cute and Easy Stationery Doodles.
Let’s dive in!
First, a little rundown of the supplies.
For my work journal, I’m using a Nuuna notebook with a metallic gold cover from Cocoa paper.
I used Sakura Pigma Microns as my fineliners and of course Zebra Milsliners for color.
A bit of wash I used was from Simply Gilded.
I’m not a super pro in brush lettering, so it was pretty hard for me to come up with a cute way to letter the month.
I was looking for inspiration and then I found this spread by @studychase. I liked the lettering and the post-it notes idea so I decided to create something similar.
Pretty simple design altogether but I think it gives a good impression on what’s to come.
In my blogging Bullet Journal, my monthly log is my content plan, so as you can imagine I need a lot of space for each box.
Therefore we have this huge calendar here.
A cool tip I have if you ever decide to have a constant plan – fill it out with an erasable pen! I have Pilot Frixion pens and they are perfect for this.
The ink might be not that bright black, but it allows me to change up my schedule without worrying about creating a mess on my page.
This is just another brain dump for all the ideas I come up with during the month.
This is also where I start when I create a content plan – I start by writing all the things I want to do and then scheduling them in my monthly log.
Most of my ideas are about the blog or my YouTube channel, but I do have a few more things I create (like my Patreon), so I added a little other section as well.
The final spread is my monthly goals.
Here just like last time I divided it into sections – my main goal, my other goals, things that I achieved, and what I should do better next month.
Don’t know if you noticed, but one of these notes has a different paper. The thing is I created a grid that wasn’t good for writing as I came to realize. So I just cut out a piece of my Archer and Olive journal and added it to cover up.
When I was planning my month I thought of creating a few more pages, like a monthly productivity tracker and a time log that helps so much to stay organized with your time.
But I sat down to create this setup pretty unexpectedly. I just finished filming another video and felt inspired to Bullet Journal some more.
Therefore those pages were not created. That’s ok – I can always add them to my main Bullet Journal.
But yeah, it’s always better to plan out your pages and maybe at least write in pencil what you want to create on each empty page.
Plan With Me Video
Finally, here is me setting up my September, hope you enjoy this fun little video.
Have you ever done a back to school theme in your Bullet Journal?
I actually did last year – September Plan With Me: Back To School Theme.
