Hello everyone!Nothing like waiting till the last minute. It was my intention to get the March Bullet Journal Spread done much earlier, but then I got this nasty cold thing and I really just want to lay on the couch and binge watch Jane Austen movies. Send over some chicken noodle soup.
But I perceived today I finished the March Spread. I have not even had time to doodle mine. I’ll doodle during the movies so I’ll post doodle ideas in a day or so. This month’s spread is in vertical format as that was the overwhelming feedback that I received. I reduced the prayer page to one page so I could have a two page spread for reading and doodling a verse a day for lent. I’ll be posting my doodle page to give you ideas.
This Month’s Theme
The theme this month is Be the letter. It is based on 2 Cor 3:2-3 You are the letter written in our hearts…. I want you to encourage you to reach out and encourage someone. Write them a letter. Everyone loves getting letters, but no one write letters anymore. I chose the the theme of letter writing as March is the month for the Graceful Envelope Contest. I will write about this next week, but is a delightful contest where people illustrate an envelope and mail it to the contest. There are some creative and gorgeous entries. Stay tuned for next week’s post.
I formatted the file two different ways so hopefully one of them works for your printer. If you want to print double sided check the setting to have it flip on the short edge and print landscape not pro.
FILES for the Printable
File A seemed to work for most people last time. This is the revised file if you tried to print it on 3-1 – I had pages backwards.
File C has the pages in sequential order. So this file should be printed on sided and then folded with the blank side out. Stack them on top of each other not inside of each other. Then to bind them possibly sew a really narrow them or glue them to the center of the cover page. Does that make sense?
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)
BindingI designed this 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.
