Hey lovely people!! For this Sundays post I’ve decided on a Bullet Journal one. My style of bullet jounaling has really changed over the months, so I though I would share it with you. However for this post, I wanted to make a spread for everyone. Because different people have different taste. So, I’ve got one for the beginners, for the Scandinavia inspired, the planet doodler and for the Parisian inspired. I feel like I’ve covered quit a good handfull of styles. So if this sounds good to you, then keep on reading!!

This has been this week’s spread. I truly love this layout. It’s really easy to fill in the different days, and I’m still loveing my water, sleep and money tracker. For this spread I’ve added a quote, a monthly goals and a monthly to do. The monthly to do and goals I’ve found really helpfull. It’s very nice to have an overview of your ambitions and what you need to get done.
If you want to create your own “Parisian Inspired” spread, then here’s a few things to keep in mind.
- You want to keep your spread looking as sophisticated as possible.
- Writing cursive is really going to make your spread look chic.
- Choosing pictures that looks like they’ve been taken in Paris is helpfull (obviously)
- Keeping your colour scheme rose, nude-ish, light gray and brown.

Beginner? Cool, but do you find yourself looking at those amazing spreads and thinking:”How the hell am I ever going to be able to draw/write like that?”. Don’t you worry, I’ve got you covered. This spread may look really hard and impressive. But to be honest it’s actually not very difficult. The only thing that may put your skills on edge, is the cursive. But if you feel like that’s too much for your DaVinci skills, then practice and go for it. The most important thing about bullet jounaling, is to NOT be afraid of making mistakes.
Here’s a few things to keep in mind, if you’re going to recreate this type of spread
- Pictures are KEY. If you’re starting out (or even if you’re a pro) pictures can really come in handy. Because they will very quickly make your spread look impressive. And like you’ve put a lot of effort into it, when you really didn’t.
- Pinterest is also key. On pinterest you can find a lot of doodles, that you can give you some inspiration, but if that feels like painting Mona Lisa, you can always just copy or “recreate”…
- Drawing little arrows, circles etc. Is a really helpfull way to make your spread look finished.

I wanted to create a spread that was more “clean” than the other ones. The reason why it’s called “Scandinavian Inspired” is because the scandinavian style is very simple, with clean colours and nothing too out going. As a Scandinavian myself, I feel like I’ve covered the style quit well (if I should say so myself).
If the Scandinavian style sounds good, then I would recommend you keep these things in mind:
- If you add pictures to your spread, I would recommend that they have a cold-ish tone. This will give your spread that “clean” vibe.
- Scandinavian style doesn’t mean only monochrome colours. Adding a colour can look soooo cool. But when you start to mix it with other colours, it can kind of loose its vibe. For my spread I went with a royal blue.
- Different textures is KEY! If you look at Scandinavian arrangement, you will se a lot of wood, glass, leather or maybe fur. All these “elements” add their own texture, and when you mix textures, it can look awesome (however I don’t know how actual fur is going to look in your bullet journal…)
- So work with textures instead for colours, however pick one colour and let that be the star of the show.

When I have friends over, the usual comment is: “May I have a look in that book of yours?”. And almost every time someone looks in “my book”, they always comment on this specific spread. And not gonna lie, it’s one of ma’ faves. I think it’s because of all the planet doodles, they really add a cool vibe. I’ve also drawn tiny little star rows. This detail really make the spread look finished.
If you are up to this type of doodle spread, then here is a few things to keep in mind:
- Creating sections with doodles are going to look so cool. However it can have the oppersite effect, and make your spread look too over cluttered.
- Don’t be too paranoid about every single pen stroke. Because in the big picture you’re really not going to notice it .
- The star rows are really handy, because they kind of fill out space, which may be looking a little bare.
- Again pictures are amazing. The can honestly make a boring spread look flawless.
