Bullet Journal Scrapbook Designs
That Will Change Your Planner Forever

I'm in absolute love with bullet journal scrapbooking. It satisfies both my urge to be creative, but also my need to be organized. Basically, a bullet journal or bujo scrapbook is a win-win!

If you're new to the concept of a scrapbook bullet journal, the easiest way to describe it is that it's like taking an ordinary bullet journal and making it look really, really pretty by styling it like a scrapbook. Here are some scrapbook tips you can also apply in your journaling.

Now, you are free to use whatever you like to make your bullet journal amazing but I personally like to include photos, stickers, stamps, magazine cut-outs, and any painting and drawing that I'm brave enough to attempt on the day. Basically, all the usual scrapbooking stuff!

Although your page size will vary depending on the size of your journal, it will be much smaller than a standard scrapbooking page size so you end up creating a mini scrapbook of sorts.
 
A lot of people like to use a standard size journal, but I personally like to use a visual diary as the paper is a little thicker, allowing me to get creative with paints and markers without scoring a hole in the paper.

Fun fact - A bullet journal is sometimes called a "BuJo", so when searching for inspiration on Pinterest or the internet, try also searching "scrapbooking BuJo".
What should I put in my scrapbook bullet journal?
Common pages for bullet journal scrapbooks include daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly planning type pages.

You can put just about anything inside these pages! Your monthly page may include birthdays, goals to achieve, and other important dates. Your weekly page would probably be more specific with to-do lists, food and exercise goals, and maybe even a shopping list.

Below are six scrapbook bullet journal inspiration designs for monthly and weekly layouts that will hopefully change your planner forever!

Spread idea #1 - Weekly bullet journal scrapbook
Spring is in the air with this early March weekly scrapbook bullet journaling. This layout is a great example of how bullet journal scrapbooks can be totally personalized ... in this case, a home gardener's scrapbook bujo! You can use a washi tape set for this design too.

The first week of March is the first week of Spring in the USA (Autumn for Australia) so I have gone with an early spring planting theme.
 
This particular bullet journal scrapbooking layout was created using a combination of DIY scrapbook printables, pre-purchased stickers, a sheet from a paper mini-stack and Copic markers to hand draw the potted plants.

Spread idea #2 - Weekly bullet journal scrapbook
Many bullet journaling scrapbooks are used as a motivational tool, a way to keep us on track with our goals. This weekly layout was created with motivation in mind and of course, coincides with early January when new year resolutions are fresh on the mind.

 

This motivational mini scrapbook layout was created with a combination of pre-purchased stickers, scrapbook printables, motivational stickers, and a circle paper punch. The pre-purchased stickers include a daily steps count and a workout log ... perfect for keeping me on track with my exercise goals.

Spread idea #3 - Weekly scrapbook bullet journal
Not many weeks of the year are more exciting than the week Christmas falls on. I have celebrated this special week with a Christmas theme and a photo of my son on his very first birthday, with a caption that reads, "It's not what's under the tree that matters ... It's who is gathered around it."

This Christmas-themed weekly bullet journal scrapbooking inspiration page was created using DIY printables, a red sheet of card, watercolor paints, and pre-purchased stickers.

Spread idea #4 - Monthly bullet journal spreads
I like the idea of tying the monthly theme in with the beginning of the season. The page above for September marks the start of Autumn in the USA, so I have created a fall-themed page. Of course, for those of you in Australia, September heralds the beginning of Spring.

This monthly bullet journal scrapbook layout was created using a combination of printables, pre-purchased stickers, washi tape, hand-drawn lettering, and handmade leaves.


The fall theme is told through the color scheme and the leaves. The leaves were made by sponging watercolor paint in yellow, orange, and red on a piece of white paper. Once this was dry, I used a set of leaf die and ran it through my die cut machine.

They came out just beautiful as you can see more clearly in the image of my supplies for this project below!

Spread idea #5 - Monthly bullet journal ideas
I have always liked the idea of creating on the cheap by using everyday items that we would normally throw away. So when I saw someone on Pinterest using bubble wrap as a stamp, I just had to try this out for myself!

This layout was created using a combination of stamps (made from bubble wrap), paint, a sheet from a mini-paper stack, and pre-purchased stickers and die-cut embellishments.

The bubble wrap stamp trees were easy peasy. Here's how to do it:

     1. Grab some scrap bubble wrap and cut a few different circle sizes.
     2. Smear acrylic or watercolor paint onto your bubble wrap.
     3. Press it down onto your paper, "moosh it in", and carefully peel it off.
     4. Once it's dry, grab some tree-trunk-colored paint and finish them off.

Here's what the trees look like closer up. I think these would look great using neon colors on black card!

Spread idea #6 - Monthly bujo scrapbook
I don't know about you, but I find rows of circles strangely satisfying. What better way to use this idea than in a monthly calendar tracker?
 
I wanted to give the days of the month more space to shine in this layout but also acknowledge that February features Valentines' Day by celebrating the loved ones within my home.

This bujo scrapbook design was created using pre-purchased journaling stickers, letter stickers, a simple circle punch, a sheet of blue card, and some pens and markers.

Here's how to make the flower border around the month title:
 

1. Grab a scrap of card and cut it into a rectangle the size of the gap you wish your title to sit on.
2. Tape it to your page with tape that will remove easily as per the photograph below.
3. Go ahead and draw your cute flowers or other images in. Feel free to go over your card as this is what creates the neat edge when we remove the card later!
4. Keep the scrap piece of card in place until you are completely finished with the color.
5. Remove the piece of card and .... there you go!
