For the month of September, I decided on a Vintage themed bullet journal spread, based on a stationery haul I did for my birthday last month. I will be putting up a post next week regarding my birthday haul, so that you can get some ideas on gifting options for stationery lovers.


    What I used to make this spread


    (All of these are stationery I got for my birthday.)

    Vintage Cover Page and Quote Page

    Cover Page

    For my cover page, I was inspired by a spread made by cynthiabujo on Instagram. I wanted to give my cover page a simple and minimal look, using the vintage colour tones (mostly black and light brown). 

    Quote Page

    For the quote page, I went with a layering style, wherein I first stuck a page of an old book and then stuck some vintage paper. Though I made this vintage paper at home, you can buy similar paper here

    Then, I stamped the words from the quote into some black scrap paper. I used my silver metallic Doms brush pen as the ink for my stamps so that they would be visible on the black paper. 

    I went with this quote from C.S. Lewis 
    There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.

    Vintage Habit Tracker and Gratitude Spread 


    Vintage Habit Tracker

    The habits I am tracking this month are reading the Bible, flossing, exercise, keyboard practice, drinking 2 bottles of water and eating 2 dates everyday. For this spread, I took some kraft paper and tore it into little bits and stamped in the headings using my alphabet stamps

    Vintage Gratitude Spread

    For this spread, I stuck a bit of black scrap paper in the bottom of the page. I then took some kraft paper, stamped a floral doodle and cut it out in the shape of the flower. I stuck this on top of the black paper.

    Vintage Goals Page and Review Page

    Monthly goals is a spread I started making last month as to what goals I wanted to achieve by the month end. To make the review page, I used the circle stickers for the headings. 

    For the goals page, I again went with a layering style. For the first layer, a torn bit of kraft paper, next an old newspaper, and then, a plant sticker, which is from my coffee sticker set

    Vintage Content Planner 

    I felt last month was quite chaotic, when I tried to combine both my social media and my blog. So, this month I decided to split my content planner to make one spread for each.  

    I used the vintage grid paper I made, and turned it into of notepad doodle. I then added other elements like stickers and washi tapes. Everything I've used will be part of next week's blog post, and I will link everything in that.

    Vintage Monthly Spread

    This monthly spread was extremely simple. I took a vintage paper I made, stuck it onto my bujo paper and I trimmed the edges. I did a calendar style layout as always and left it at that. 

    The only thing I did was stamp in the days of the week and the heading.

    Vintage Weekly Spreads

    This month, I incorporated a new spread which is my "week overview". In this spread, I list out what my events for the week are and what blog related tasks I have to do each day. 

    After this spread, I make my weekly spreads. I used my vintage washi tape, which I got from Washi Sabi's Instagram shop and my DIY vintage paper to make the weekly spreads. 

    I also used my floral doodle stamp and my coffee sticker to finish the spread.
