It’s that time of year again, February! This is one of my favorite months to plan in my bullet journal. When you think of February, what comes to mind? Valentines!
This month I wanted to set up a layout that anyone can recreate. With hearts, washi tape, and Valentines colors it’s fun and functional.
If you don’t have the exact supplies that I use in this spread, it’s cool. You most likely have markers lying around that are similar in color, and I’m confident that you can draw hearts. The markers I used for this spread are the Tombow Dual Brush Pens. A good alternative to these is the Crayola Supertips. To find out more about the supplies I used to continue reading.

INSPIRATION FOR MY FEBRUARY BULLET JOURNAL SPREAD
My inspiration for February is Valentines. I wanted this month’s spread to be fun and festive. I also really wanted to use my Tombow Dual Brush pens.
MONTHLY CALENDAR/MONTHLY LOG
With my 12 month calendar, I decided to make a 2-page spread. I went with pink and red Tombow dual brush pens, washi tape, heart stencils, and I went back in with more detail using my white Signo white gel pen.
I started by creating my lines for the February calendar. I like to make my calendars big enough for functionality and still leave a little room for design.
I added hearts for each day of the month and wrote the numbers in with a white gel pen (UNIBALL SIGNO BROAD POINT GEL PEN ). To make the hearts more uniform I decided to use my stencil to create my hearts. To add a little more fun to my calendar I added some washi tape. Another reason I decided to add washi tape to this calendar is because… I made a mistake. I created two extra boxes after the 28th of February, don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Sometimes you can easily fix your mistakes and other times not so much. If you do make a mistake, don’t dwell on it… just move on.

I tried to avoid black on this spread because I wanted it to be a lighter tone, and have more of a Valentine feel. I
WEEKLY CALENDAR/WEEKLY LOG
After I created the spread for the full February calendar I decided to make a weekly calendar. I designated boxes for each day of the week, and then went back in to each day of the week with the pink marker in the Tombow Dual Brush Pen pack (the same one I used for the monthly calendar). To add a little more detail I added some lines within the lettering using my white gel pen.
Lastly, I went in with the black Tombow Fudenosuke Brush pen to write my numbers. Yep, I caved and used black. I wanted the day of the week to pop on the page so I could easily find the day I was looking for.

That wraps up my February bullet journal setup. I didn’t add many pages to this months setup because 1) February isn’t expected to be a busy month for me and 2) I wanted to keep this month simple and only incorporate pages I knew I would use.
