My April Bullet Journals 2021

Hey guys!

Happy Easter Monday folks – whether you celebrate or not I hope you are all having a fun bank holiday weekend.
Today I am very excited to show off my April Bullet Journal Spreads, I am not that happy with my personal journal spread – but my blogging bullet journal spread is one of my favourites yet!
If you have never seen any of my bullet journalling posts before here is a link to them if you are interested. I started bullet journalling at the start of 2020 and it has quickly became one of my favourite hobbies. But that’s enough pre-amble – As always let me get into telling you about my journals if you are interested in that – if not just skip down to the photos of my spreads.

How I Journal:

I have two bullet journals, one for blogging/reading and then one for my personal everyday life and while this isn’t typical (usually the point of bullet journals is to have everything in one place) but I find that having them separated works best for me. Plus, I get to do two different themes. I decided to upgrade my personal bullet journal this year from an A5 to B5 because I do use it everyday and I wanted a little bit more space than before which I don’t need for my blogging journal. So far I am liking this upgrade as it meant I could condense down all my spreads into fewer pages but I am still not 100% used to the larger size of it now so it’s harder to plan out spreads.

My Supplies:

If there is one thing I’ve learnt about bullet journalling it is that you do not need fancy stuff to do it. I started with a pack of highlighters and journals that were under £10 from amazon and that was it. I have since upgraded because I have fallen in love with journalling and it is where I want to spend my money but you definitely do not need to do that.

My Blogging Bullet Journal:

This is my blogging/reading bullet journal. It is a stunning maroony-berry-purple and I love it. It was £8.99 on Amazon from the company Stationary Island and despite the lower price tag I cannot recommend it enough. It is very sturdy with decent page thickness. I’ve only had the ink bleed through once or twice when I used it last year and I was definitely going a bit crazy with the colouring. I read reviews saying it fell apart on them but I had two of them last year which I used every single day in 2020 and neither of them broke. And I’ve been using this one for 4 months and it’s also still perfect condition.

For this theme I picked strawberries. And I am so so so happy with the way this turned out. I love how the two pages feel joined but also separate. Plus, this was so easy to draw which is always a pus. I was also happy with the calligraphy. I just love this and I’m so happy with it.

I changed up the way I did this spread and so far I’m enjoying using it.
F means format – so e-book, physical, hardback etc.
£ – Is obviously how much it cost or if it was free
V means via – so where I got it from, netgalley, waterstones, amazon etc
I just like having it all in one place so I’m less likely to run out of room than I was in previous months.

So that was this journal, most of my spreads are identical to usual just with the different theme and colours.

My Personal Bullet Journal:

This is my personal bullet journal. It is massive. It’s been great for condensing my monthly use into fewer pages but it still feels huge haha. When it comes to getting a new Bullet Journal I will probably size back down to a A5 BuJo because as much as I am loving the space I am definitely liking it less than the A5 size.

I don’t know what to call this theme, it reminds me of primary school drawings. I don’t know if I love it, I like the purple colour I’ve used for the main elements but I think it feels a little cluttered. I do however like this layout more than the past few months layouts.

I like the broken lines here even though it was time consuming. Like I said before, definitely not my favoruite theme but there are elements I like about it.

So those are my spreads for April. What did you do for your April spreads? Anyway, have a great day and week! I will see you on Wednesday with my Word of the Week!
