Cover Page

Here’s my August cover page! I don’t have any super specialized theme for this month—more of a loose vibe, with a bright color scheme and lots of plant details.

I did a fun lettering style for the heading, using this Pinterest photo as a reference:

I used a fineliner (similar one here) to letter the outline and then filled it in with a Japanese calligraphy pen (the double-tipped Zig Clean Color Dot).

Then, I wrote my goals on this adorable pineapple notepad paper and decorated the page with a succulent sticker, washi tape, and these really cool Paperhouse pens that have two tips on the same end. (I’m not really sure how to explain it so I’ll just put a photo of the pen below?)

Two lines pen

I have some pretty big goals for this month (college apps ahh), so I think this simple and functional cover page will be useful for me.

I think this monthly spread is my favorite spread of the month because I love the succulent stickers that I used for this one.

I used the same green pen that I used on my cover page to letter the month title next to the calendar, and I added a few more details with some more tape from the rainbow washi tape pack and one of these gorgeous botanical stamp stickers. (They’re like my new favorite stickers.)


Next up is my highlights and sleep tracking spread, which has become a staple for me in recent months. I used a thicker fineliner for the headers (similar one here) and a pink Tombow brush pen for the lines on the sleep tracker.

This is one of my most-used spreads each month: I track something that made me happy every single day, as well as my hours of sleep.

Again, for decorations, I used the succulent and botanical stickers, washi tape, and a piece of fruity notepaper (with one of my favorite Clairo lyrics written on it). I also added some of these really pretty Japanese stickers of cherry blossoms.

Next up is my habit tracker spread, for which I also used the succulent stickers, washi tape, and green dot pen.,

  3. I love this set-up so much!! I’m planning to work on my August spreads soon so this gave me some motivation and inspo.🥰 (I guess a good thing to come out of quarantine is that I’ve started bullet journaling again, haha.) Good luck with the college apps! That’s one of my main goals in August too, which is exciting, but terrifying, especially the essays.

    1. Thank you Olivia!! Ahh that’s amazing, I’m so glad this was helpful 😊 Thanks, good luck to you as well! Ugh I know 😩 I’m not rly sure how to feel about common app release day this weekend haha—like you said, on the one hand, there’s something exciting about it, and I’ll be glad to get them out of the way, but I also feel like a lot of it may not be a fun time
