Here’s the April Bullet Journal Spread. I had hoped to have it posted this week end, but there were just a lot of obstacles in my way. I am excited to report that my teaching load will be greatly reduced which means I have more time for doodling and blog posts. I am going to try to get May June and July done in April and I hope to post the May spread by April 25th. That will give you five days to print, doodle and color before you start using it. I’d love to have some feedback on page spreads you’d like to see of areas where you need more room. How can I help you make this an effective planner and life journal? I’d also like some ideas for themes for May, June and July. I’d love an email or comment with your thoughts.
This month I decided on the theme of Spring and April Showers. I love spring. It’s my favorite season. I love it when the weather warms up and the spring bulbs begin to poke out of the ground. My Daffodils are still blooming. I doodled flowers and clouds. For the main image of this post, I posted the full color image of the cover verse to give you ideas on how to color and doodle this page. I also doodled some simple flowers for you to color and repeat.
I formatted the file two different ways so hopefully one of them works for your printer. Follow the instructions below for best printing results.
FILES for Printing:
A- formatted to be printed double sided, folded in the middle and stapled in the center.
Print double sided
Settings: Print landscape, two sided, flip on the short edge
C – Formatted to print one sided with two sequential pages on one page.
Print one sided, landscaped.
Here is a list of the Supplies you’ll need
5 sheets of paper – consider printing the first page on card stock. I actually printed all of my pages on card stock so it will hold up a little better on the go.
-a black pen – preferably permanent ink
-markers or colored pencils (optional)
-binding material (stapler, or glue or sewing machine)
Binding: I File A is designed to be printed double sided and bound in the middle.
- Use an extended staple that will reach out 5 1/2 inches.
- Use a sewing machine and run a quick seam down the middle, or you could a big darning needed and hand sew it.
- CAREFULLY use teeny tiny drops of glue on inside fold to glue your pages together – be careful with this method
Let me know if these work or not and what changes you’d like to see for next month.
I’ll be doodling to give you inspiration so stay tuned. I’ll post those ideas later this week.
