March presents the first glimmer of spring, but April offers the true beginning of the warm months. This is the time when flowers come in waves, snow turns into rain, and everything begins to become more beautiful.
This is a month full of life after the cold, dark winter. I love the many different ways bullet journalers use this grand inspiration to turn their April bullet journals into gorgeous and useful celebrations of spring!
New to the Bullet Journal?
If April is one of the first months you’ve used a bullet journal, I highly recommend checking out my Ultimate Bullet Journal Guide to help you get a better understanding of the system.
Like so many people my age, I grew up around Pokemon. I may have never really cared about the games, but I've always loved the creativity that went into designing the Pokemon. Not to mention, they are just plain cute.
Creating a digital bullet journal is a scary jump to make, but once I did it, I never regretted it! I still use my paper bullet journal for my personal planning, but I use a digital bullet journal for work and I love it.
Turns out that this is actually a post about hot air balloon bullet journal themes. I'm kidding, of course, but I had to include this one as well. The colors in the balloons really make this spread incredible.
Sometimes you just want a spread that works and you don't want to have to do anything super fancy. In those situations, I like to just create a simple setup, but add watercolor backgrounds to add a dash of color.
Bees are the unsung heroes of spring, so give them the love and recognition they deserve in your April bullet journal. Plus, as an added bonus, if people see your spread you can use it as an opportunity to spread awareness about how important bees really are.
Flowers are a popular choice for a reason. Florals are a great way to add some intrigue to your April bullet journal. There are a ton of simple flowers you can include in your spread to really make it pop.
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of galaxy themes. These amazing looking designs look super complex, but they are actually pretty simple to make. Plus, I just can't help but to sit and stare at them for a few minutes to take in all of the details.
Sometimes the easiest way to create a stunning setup is by just adding small touches that really bring the spread to life. Some simple ways you can add a little something extra is by adding a dutch door (like in this spread), some watercolors, washi tape, or stickers. The options are nearly endless, so just have some fun and experiment!
