Minimalist bullet journal spreads
We'll get into the beautiful pages, which are broken down into the following categories for your perusing convenience:
- Annual pages and future logs
- Monthly spreads
- Weekly pages
Annual overviewHere are a few ideas to design the big picture spread for your year.
Yearly calendarWith a mega bullet journal stencil set*, you can make perfect numbers to have your bullet journal spread stand out. So ridiculously easy. (via Pin image)
Overview and events logOr simply writing the numbers yourself will suffice as well. (via Pin image)
Vertical future logTall, skinny lettering for the titles are a great way to draw focus without having too much embellishment. (via @bulletjournal)
Horizontal future logJust switching the placement of elements of your future log page can break up monotony, if that's something you may be concerned about. (via Pin image)
Monthly logsThese gorgeous pages will give you a sleek outlook for each month.
Simple bannerIt's easy to get carried away with decorations on what could be a really simple page. Just a few lines, a nice banner, and highlighting make this a monthly cover that stands out. (via Pin image)
Corner frameIf you feel the need to add a few lines, how about just the corners of your monthly log calendar? (via Pin image)
Floral embellishmentOr a bold box doesn't hurt. A simple bullet journal doodle like this colorful flower at the top gives this cover page a little personality. (via Pin image)
Vertical monthly logOne of easiest ways to make a monthly calendar spread is to make a vertical log with the dates running in a column. Add a little character with some bullet journal font styling in your title. (via @luckyletters)
Cover and calendarThis page is a little busier, but it keeps everything together without having too much extra "stuff." (via Pin image)
Weekly spreadsNow let's get into some weekly spreads, since that is probably what makes the bulk of your bullet journal.
Simplest pageI don't think it gets simpler than a spread like this. The month in top corner, initial of the day of the week, and a line that separates the date section from the notes section. (via Pin image)
LandscapeYet another simple weekly spread that includes boxes with the day of the week at top. (via Pin image)
Tasks bubbleIn this spread, the cursive script for the day of the week makes the top border of each day's box. A circle is cleverly used for tasks on the side, differentiating it from the rest of the week's notes. (via @bullet.journal101)
MonochromaticIn true minimalist form, the gray highlighting at the top for tasks and notes keeps this page to a monochromatic theme. (via Pin image)
Circle headerThis page makes a statement for sure. Huge numbers in a bold circle with the absence of column lines make for nice minimalistic balance. (via @pacificnotation)
No column linesAnother weekly spread without any column lines. The white space at the top really sets the focus on the weekly spread very well, despite it not comprising of much. (via Pin image)
Highlighter headersIf you do want a border but not necessarily drawing a strong, black line, you could use a highlighter. (via Pin image)
Spaced days of week headerHighlighting is also use subtly in this spread. Notice too how spacing the words in the days of the week helps to create a header border. (via @pinyasdesk)
Wreath headerSpeaking of headers, this one uses an easy open wreath to set the day of the week apart from the rest of the spread quite nicely. (via Pin image)
Washi headerIf you're a fan of using washi tape in your bullet journal, here's a clever, minimalist use of it to embellish the date headers. I think it really adds a nice personal touch to the spread. (via @journalspiration)
Block shape letteringSpeaking of personality, here's another spread that uses stencils and lines, which are otherwise not very unique, to put their spin just by how these elements are placed on the page. (via Pin image)
Plan with me walkthrough videoAnd because I couldn't help myself, I'm including another video on this post for some bujo inspiration. (via Kelanjo)
