March bujo setup + an attempt at a tutorial? *highfives*

hey hey. How are you? I’m good, although I think I’m currently coming down with what my family has had so prayers I don’t get sick.

We’re nearing the end of February, so that means it’s time for another bullet journal post! I also tried to kind of make it a tutorial but low-key failed so oh welp. I think that a video tutorial would be so much more helpful so I’m looking into how to go about that! This is gonna be a shorter post as I don’t know how to expand a lot on my pages. But aside from that, please, enjoy!

Okayyyy. Turns out the only page I did step by step was this one so make sure you treasure it xD.

  • Step one: sketch the design. Funny story, I was actually gonna do coffee as my march theme but after trying and NOT succeeding THREE times, I went for the easier alternative: Lavender. Which is pretty cool. Actually it gives me a rash and I think I’m allergic to it but it looks cool 😂 So I sketched my lavender stalk out with a pencil and that is the end result.
  • Step two: Draw a line, splitting the page where you want to cut it. I drew a line down the center of the page, splitting the page in half and creating a line for me to follow when I was cutting the excess page off. * Claps for me bc I cut the page acceptable-ish*
  • Step three: Cut with scissors down the line, following the design of your leaf/stalk/creation. I cut down the line very slowly and then at the end I rushed it because I was tired and wanted to be done 😂 Overall it’s not terrible looking, so that makes me happy.
  • Step four: ( shown in picture below) Color in the sketch! YaY!

TA-DA!!!! I actually really like the colors of this and its super easy to draw lavender, So lavender is a cool theme.*raises eyebrows* its the best when we down have to try really hard and it still looks decent right?!? As you’ve probably noticed, I’m in a very sarcastic mood rn, probably because I don’t feel the best so please forgive me 🙂

Next, I abbreviated March and then continued on to adding the dates/calendar thing. And that is the result of my cover page! What’d you think?!? *Proudly holds it for you to see* *hand flourishes around it* I’m quite happy with the result!

This is were the tutorial stops. sorry sorry sorry!!!

Eeeekkk I like this feature! I hid a quote, my goals and the word of the month under the flap of the lavender branch and I LOVE it! The only drawback is that there is a blank spot on the right side of the page, above the Mar. and calendar but I didn’t want to try and add a quote or something and mess it all up. So we’re gonna live with it 😊

Moving right on, here is my notes and mood tracker. I especially like the key part of the mood tracker, it looks cool to me?! The notes page is pretty simple, its where I jot down ideas, notes, and anything that doesn’t have a designated area!

Next is my calendar, which I’m not as proud of, but it’ll work. The reason I dislike it is because it doesn’t have the day of the week, which is usually helpful for me, so I will probably either work the days of the week in or not do this layout again.

Last page. *cries silently* Here I have my playlist, which is pretty self-explanatory, and also my memories page, which is where I write down small memories of different days. A lot of times I won’t have time to journal daily ( which I need to start doing) So I’ll just jot down a quick note of what I did and why/how it was special!

THATS IT FOR TODAY FOLKS! Hope you enjoyed! Sorry I was so sarcastic xD

What page was your favorite? Do you have a bullet journal? What was your theme for March? Talk to me in the comments!

Thank you a million for reading, your support is the bestest ❤️❤️❤️

xx, Jasmin

  1. alsoooo! so my bullet journal died… buuut I’ve been keeping a memory journal and that’s going well! most likely because there’s no pressure to commit daily and only when cool stuff happens and then I’m all excited to document it all with doodles and photos and ish.
