Bullet Journal Setup for July


July Welcome Page

Bullet Journal Cover Page


I always enjoy setting up my bullet journal for a new month. It's the perfect opportunity to review how I'm getting on and set new goals. Creating a cover page gives the feeling of a new chapter to look forward to.


To create my cover page, I used my Love Words & Doodles Stamp Set and added colour with some Derwent Watercolour pencils.


For the lettering, I used a Tombow Fudenosuke brush pen, with a firm nib.


I create my bullet journal in a Rhodia Goalbook, which I keep inside a Paisley Navigator cover from Start Bay Notebooks.





Bullet Journal Calendar

The next two pages that I created are for my calendar, key tasks, social media tracking and end of month review. I've recently changed back to using a vertical calendar, as it gives me the space to write down multiple events or deadlines each day. Plus, it's really quick and easy to set up.


I use the key tasks section to set out the main things that I really want to achieve during July. Every week I refer back to this, to check that I am making progress on the goals that I had in mind.


The social media box is used for tracking growth on my social media channels, along with my Skillshare classes. I find it really helpful to see which content people are enjoying the most, as this helps my plans for the new month.


I've added a review section this month so that I have somewhere to reflect, before setting up my bullet journal for the next month. The gorgeous washi tape is from London Gifties.


Gratitude Log & Habit Tracker

Gratitude Log & Habit Tracker

I've used this layout for my gratitude log and habit tracker for as long as I can remember. It works so well for me and I always like the look of the completed pages.


Completed Habit Tracker

This is how my pages look once they are all filled in.


I try to write a line or two in my gratitude log every evening, along with filling in my habit tracker.


I create the pattern in my habit tracker by adding three diagonal lines in each box, where the habit has been completed.


I alternate the direction of the lines in the next box, both along and below, to create a pattern.



Master Task List

Master Task List

I use my Master Task List as a kind of organised brain dump. It's a great place to write down everything that needs doing and means that nothing will be forgotten. It's one of my bullet journal spreads that I would be lost without.


Having the different categories means that my outstanding tasks feel less of a jumbled mess, than if they were just written down in any order.


Reasons to be Proud

Reasons to Be Proud

I have found it so beneficial to offer myself a little praise every evening. As someone who is a professional worrier :) it really calms my mind to focus on the things that I have done well at.


My notes section is a perfect place to jot down any new ideas that pop into my head. I also like to write down tips that I've read in books or seen on YouTube videos.


Best Moments & Mood Tracker

Best Moments and Mood Tracker

The final bullet journal pages that I set up for July were to record my Best Moments and Mood tracking.


Planner Frames Stamp Set

I used my Planner Frames Stamp Set to create the Best Moments page.


I will letter or doodle in some of my favourite moments throughout the month.


I think this will be a great visual summary of my month and I can't wait to start filling it out.


I've kept my mood tracker very simple and will use one of three colours to summarise my mood at the end of each day.

I hope this has given you some new ideas for your bullet journal and that you have a wonderful month of July.
