July is flying by which means it’s time to plan our August Bullet Journal! For some August means back to school, and for others it’s just another month. Whatever this month means to you, let’s start the it off on the right foot

 

My spread for the August bullet journal is now a personal favorite. I went with a music theme and just used a few colors. For my spread I went with my usual pages and added a few extra.

 

For this spread I decided to use more lettering this month. In previous months I kept it pretty simple. I’ve been practicing. 🙂

  • Brain Dump
  • Habit Tracker
  • Audible Playlist
  • Music Playlist

 

COVER PAGE

This is the first month that I used two pages for my monthly cover. I really like the way it turned out!

Originally, I was just going to do the mini calendar, and the microphone but it looked to plain. I added a quote…

Life is a song… sing it.

and tied the two pages together with music notes and and staves (staff).

I realize that some people may not want to attempt drawing the microphone portion of this cover page. I was honestly a little intimidated in the beginning. After practicing it a couple of times I felt like I could do it.  A good alternative to the microphone would be a large music note, piano keys, or a cassette tape.

 

 

MONTHLY CALENDAR

The monthly calendar for this months spread was simple, yet kept the theme going.

I added a few music notes around the month and added piano keys to the side of the page. The size and layout are the perfect size for me.

 

 

weekly calendar

WEEKLY CALENDAR

My weekly calendar this month is simple with the same color scheme.

The only thing I would have done differently for this calendar is create lines for separation. I think the information is going to start getting jumbled up.

 

 

BRAIN DUMP

Not much going on here. It’s a simple “brain dump” page for keeping up with ideas, thoughts, and more.

I like to keep my brain dump pages pretty simple, this way I have more space to write.

 

 

 

HABIT TRACKER

For my habit tracker I decided to keep up with 6 habits for the month. If you don’t want to keep up with this many just start with two or four. If habit trackers aren’t for you, consider changing this to a mood tracker, or eliminating it all together.

 

 

AUDIBLE PLAYLIST

I’ve been listening to Audible a lot lately. Mostly because I keep forgetting to cancel my monthly membership.  Here I’m going to write the 3 books I want to read/listen to for the month.

 

 

MUSIC PLAYLIST

What  a music theme without a playlist? If you’re a music lover this is perfect for you! You can see how your music tastes change by the month by listing your favorite songs, or list songs/albums you’d like to listen to for that month.

 

 

 

Here are more page ideas to consider in your August Bullet Journal setup:
