Isn't it amazing? Spring is finally here!!! Woohoo! 🌸 All these colours and smells always make me so happy ☺️ March has been such a nice month for me - both personally and professionally - and I’m so grateful for that! I drew a lot, created loads of new stickers (the Easter ones are my favourite!!!) for my shop and had some amazing time with family and friends ✨
I also created an account on Patreon!!! Yay! After a lot of thought and deliberation, I now have a Patreon page and I’m super excited about that. 😊 If you like my work and you're interested in supporting me on Patreon, you can choose how much you want to pledge per month (for as little as 1$). In return you'll get some fun rewards! (check them out here). You can join anytime, edit your pledge anytime and cancel anytime, and you get access to all online content as soon as you pledge.
Getting back now to my monthly setup. April is letter writing month, so the theme I chose for my monthly setup in my bullet journal is ‘Happy Mail’! I think it’s so appropriate and I love how cute and nice it has turned out!!! 💌
Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the post, because there's also a video, where I'm showing you exactly how I've created each spread.
As always we start with the Cover Page of the month. For April I created a cute little snail that is carrying some happy mail on top of his shell. 🐌 I don’t know why, but this page makes me so happy every time I look at it. I decided to use only my Tombow markers this time for all my pages. I like the effect of watercolour that I used to create last month’s setup. However, I wanted something quick and easy for this month’s pages.
You can check all the supplies I’ve used, at the end of this blog post.
I’ve also turned all the doodles of this setup into stickers. Aren’t they adorable?
You can now find the Happy Mail stickers in my Etsy Shop and add some cuteness to your bullet journal too. 😘
Next comes my Monthly Spread. I decided to keep this layout very simple and I was inspired by the amazing @saricastudio. I love the way she uses the space on the page and I decided to do the same. We have a lot of things happening during April, so I need the space to plan things properly! We’re also going to Vienna at the end of the month - which I’m very excited about!!! ✈️ If you have any recommendations for Vienna - like coffee shops, things to do and of course stationery shops - please let me know in the comments below!!! ☺️
On the next page I added my Monthly Focus - which is where I'll write my monthly goals for April. I decided to change the layout of the page this month. Now it is a 2-page spread where I have a full page dedicated for each section - personal and work. I find that if I create dedicated sections for each category, sometimes I need more space and it ruins the layout. So, this time I gave myself enough space to be as analytical as I want, and I love the way it turned out. Of course I had to add some cute little envelopes to tie the page with the theme. 💌
And then move on to the first Weekly Spread of the month, which is one of my favourites I’ve created!! 😍 I am using a layout that I use every single month, and I added a cute little envelope for each day. I used my black N15 Tombow marker to create the lines, because I wanted them to be thicker than my usual ones, and I also added some pastel colours to each envelope. For the notes section I created a post box and I think the whole page looks adorable! I can’t wait to start using it!
And that is the April setup in my bullet journal. I hope you liked it and that you’ve found some inspiration. Let me know in the comments below what theme you’ve chosen for April.
