    Create Backgrounds with Distress Inks

    After so many questions and comments, I thought I would take this opportunity to show you how to create backgrounds with distress inks in a bullet journal or planner. This has long been one of my favourite techniques to use and I have recently started using it again (August 2021 Bullet Journal Setup). There really isn’t much to this technique, rather the real magic lies in how you use it. You can check out my YouTube video here, where I describe the different kinds of Distress Inks, and show you how they work. In this blog post, I am sharing my go-to supplies, some tips and tricks, as well as…

    Glitter in a Bullet Journal

    Welcome to the third installment of Use What You Have (UWUH): glitter in your bullet journal edition! There was definitely a deep, resigned sigh that followed when I pulled this out of my dumpster fire. But, I did it! Unlike my last UWUH layout using paper bags, I did not show you how you can use this in an actual weekly spread. No! I will tell you right away, I DO NOT recommend doing this in your actual bullet journal! Lol! But in case you want to… Here is the video for your viewing. I am still cleaning glitter from my workspace if you are wondering. But maybe after Christmas…

    January Bullet Journal Setup

      2020 is coming up quick and with it, my January Bullet Journal setup. I’m taking my layouts in a bit of a different direction this month as I work to improve my productivity. Don’t worry though! I have every intention to still incorporate colour and creativity! So first off, let me begin with my shameless plug: email subscribers get this print (on the left) as a free download. If you’re interested in getting these dashboard prints (for free), make sure to subscribe to my newsletter. And now onto the good stuff 🙂 January Bullet Journal Setup: Productivity 101 Here is a flip-through of my setup (you can also click…

    2020 Bullet Journal Setup

      It’s time to sit down and reflect on what I want for my 2020 Bullet Journal Setup. I decided to keep it relatively simple with a Future Log, a spread to capture My 100 Rejections (more on that further down), and a Social Media tracker. Full disclosure: this will be my first time setting up for a new year like this. In the meantime, here is the video of my setup on YouTube. Below I’ll be sharing my supplies and reasoning for the collections I chose. This post contains some affiliate links.

    December Bullet Journal Setup 2019

    It’s already time to share my December Bullet Journal setup. This month I have chosen gnomes as my theme. It’s already seeming like this theme is overdone but this is my version of it! Especially since I didn’t have any gnome stamps so I’m drawing all of my gnome elements this month. I’ve already uploaded my Plan With Me video if you want to watch the process. Otherwise, I’m including my supplies I used as well as some tips and tricks for my December Bullet Journal setup. This post contains some affiliate links.
