Bullet Journal July Set up | June Flip Through & Video

Leave a Comment

Another month, another journal set up to complete. Although, I'm pretty sure it was only last week I sat down with my fine liners to plan for June. Where did that month disappear to?! I had been anticipating June for quite some time. I went on my friend's hen do in Barcelona, which had been in the works for a good few months, and before I knew it, it was over! Barcelona was stunning, I absolutely loved the city as well as it being a lovely opportunity to spend some time with my besties. So June was a pretty good month!

Barcelona! Take me back :(

I feel as time has gone on with my journal, it has become a practical tool for structured planning and less about pretty spreads and nice ways to capture memories. I don't think I will ever have a beautifully artistic journal like the many I am in awe of on Instagram, that just isn't me. I'm too messy for that. I like to start out by making it pretty, which is why I love doing a title page for the month so much. It's one time I put aside to do something really creative in my journal. I usually base my paintings or illustrations on flowers that bloom in that month and I've really enjoyed using this as my starting point.

However, this month I did try to include a bit more illustration and creativity into an otherwise quite boring list. I decided to illustrate the items I wanted to buy for the hen do the night before I went on my last minute holiday shop. I sat down with my journal in front of the telly, just planning to make a simple list but I decided to draw the items instead. I really liked doing it this way, because I was so excited about the hen do at this point, it made the planning pages that little bit more special.

So, I plan to include more spreads like this in July, I intend to do a Barcelona memories page in a similar fashion and maybe that is something I can start including again, like I did towards the beginning of the year. I would like to start adding some more creative elements to my journal again.

My video of setting up my journal is below if you would like to watch it. I decided to do a more chatty update this month as the last few I have done have been time lapses. I challenged myself at the beginning of the year to make a bullet journal every month through to December, mostly so I hold myself accountable & keep it updated! I have enjoyed making bullet journal videos but I have lots of new DIY tutorials coming up soon, so if that's your kind of thing, please subscribe to stay in the loop! I'm so close to 2,000 subscribers, which is bloody mental!

What have been your favourite bullet journal spreads this month?
