Bullet Journal March Set Up | Blog Post by Connie

Seriously cannot believe it’s almost March already! 2019 is moving fast, and if you live a busy life style, keeping an organised planner is a must to ensure your goals are reached and tasks are done! Last year, I took up bullet journaling and it has been part of my life since. For those of you who have no idea what it is- bullet journal (bujo) is an analogue journaling system originally developed by Ryder Carroll. It is a system that combines to do lists, a notebook, diary and sketchbook all in one. I enjoyed its practicality and also the flexibility of designing your own layout. And if you love drawing and illustration like me, bullet journaling is a joy to play around with to create endless design ideas.  When I opened the February box, I was screaming with ultimate happiness from inside out!! This box is just the perfect bullet journal starter box! I absolutely adore the Kokuyo Jibun Techo Template and the Delfonics- Rollbahn Notebook.  They are minimalist in design, but offer so much creative opportunity.

So, I decided to share with you my Bujo set up for March using my favourite items from this box. Inspired by BGM LIFE Coffee Stickers and Nishishuku Bread Postcards from the box, I have chosen to use baked goods and desserts as my a fun theme for this set up

The grids on the Delfonics- Rollbahn Notebook allow you to rule up the layout easily and neatly using the Kokuyo Jibun Techo Template. The template gives you a few options of lines, I love the wiggly lines for ruling up boxes to sectioned-off areas for notes or ‘to do’ lists and goals. You can customise these boxes however you like to suit your needs. You can see that I also use the wiggly line to sketch up a mock postal stamp as a decoration! There are a few bullet options on the template as well, which is fabulous!

As I am going for a simplistic, fun theme in this set up, I deliberately limited my colour palette. I used the Tombow Dual Brush Pen for highlighting all the headings and the borders. I also used the brush pen as a watercolour tool by brushing the tip on a piece of used plastic then applied the ink from the plastic onto the page with a waterbrush! I also used the Kokuyo Gel Markers with a water brush to illustrate the fun croissants and donuts on the side! 

Here is a full video of the set up!

I hope you enjoyed my post this month and will be inspired to take up bullet journaling! (Warning! It is highly addictive!) You are welcome to follow my video to set up your March spread or you could just design your own! We are always excited to see your creative work so don’t forget to #thestationeryselection to share your beautiful layout with us!
