It’s almost the end of the month, which means it’s time for…
August’s plan with me post!
insert applause here
I am SUPER excited about this month’s theme! Not to brag, but I think my August pages are pretty dang awesome.
As always, I started off the month with a review of my spreads. To read about my process, click here.
Things I kept:
- monthly layout—the calendar setup with the habit tracker beneath in has been working really well for me
- a piece of washi tape on the edge of my monthly spread—this makes it easier to find my monthly log without looking at the index
- the master plan goal-setting spread (more on that later)
- layout for planning blog + instagram posts
- monthly highlights page
(the one) Thing
s I ditched:
- only one item on this list this month: the mood mandala—this spread is fun, and it looks really cool, but I’ve been finding it to be a little useless of late. I decided to cut it because it feels unnecessary.
Things I changed:
- monthly log header—you’ll see this soon
- I changed the editorial calendar just a tiny bit
- monthly tbr (to be read) list
Things I tried:
- space theme!
- dark blue + yellow color scheme
- additional items in my habit tracker—succulent watering, email checking
August Cover Page
I’m kind of obsessed with this page.
I used my water brush and watercolors to make the blue circle. After it dried, I lettered the month (august) with my tombow fudenosuke brush pen and did a little shadow thingy with my uni-ball gel signo, which is the best white gel pen ever! (Links to all of the supplies used will be provided at the bottom of the post.)
I kept my monthly log pretty much the same as last month, except for the space theme, which I kept the same throughout all of my August pages
I loved doing this spread in July, so I decided to do it again! I am super happy with how it turned out, especially the header.
I am still liking Shelby of Little Coffee Fox’s goal setting spread, so not much has changed here. I’m not super thrilled with how the header turned out, but I really like how the quote at the bottom of the page looks.
August TBR List
I made a tbr (to be read) spread for the first time in July. It worked pretty well, so I decided to make one again. I haven’t written any books down yet, but I will probably post a pic on my instagram when I have, so make sure you’re following me if you want to see it all filled out.
The columns on the right are for keeping track of a) if I’ve finished reading the book, b) if I’ve logged it in my bullet journal, c) if I’ve logged the book for my library’s summer reading program, d) if I’ve logged the book on Goodreads, and e) if I’ve reviewed it on my blog. I won’t do all of these things for every book I read, but it’s helpful to have it all in one place.
Supplies I Used
Here’s a nice, handy list of all the supplies I used to make my August spreads:
And that’s my bullet journal setup for August! Have you ever done a space theme in your bullet journal? Do you have a tbr list? How do you set it up? Let’s talk about it in the comments below!
