If you haven’t heard of the trendiest way to organize your life, a bullet journal (sometimes known as a BuJo) is the new, leading method of personal organization. BuJo organizes your scheduling, reminders, to-do lists, budget, accomplishments, brainstorming, and other organizational tasks into a single, convenient notebook.
This all-in-one organizational tool is meant to be something that can be carried around with you, unlike traditional planners, which have become increasingly unwieldy. While BuJo’s are usually small, with the help of some key decorative and organizational elements, they can make a significant difference in your daily life. Use these tips to take this modern hero to the next level!
Use Stamps To Add Minimalist Design
Artisan stamps have gained in popularity the last few years, so use this to your benefit when designing your BuJo. Stamps can help you add consistent design in very little time. Browse Papertrey’s stamp page to get inspired, or search by category to find patterns that fit your every need.
Color Coordinate With Exciting Inks
After you’ve decided on your BuJo’s layout, choosing the right ink can help you to color-coordinate your pages. Our unique dye ink pads, available in exclusive colors, provide fantastic coverage and clear impressed images every time. Our metallic inks can help provide that extra shimmer to your page (and your week)!
Even more, if you decide on one color, you can use our search tool to determine other colors you may want to pair it with or other items that are available in that color.
Enhance Your Journal’s Texture With Dies
Using dies can help you add intricate texture and depth to your journal without the hassle of tedious illustrations. Border dies can help you to organize and categorize information on your pages, while die-cut corner adorners themed for different holidays such as Halloween or Valentine’s Day can add a memorable touch.
Decorate Your Edges With Ribbon
Once you’re done establishing your internal organization, don’t forget to spice up the outside! A bit of stitched ribbon around the sides and edges of your BuJo can add an eye-catching embellishment and help your journal to stand out from the crowd!
Of course, feel free to combine many of the ideas above to create the finest journal you can imagine. The goal is to help you beautify your life, so be sure to choose elements that will inspire clarity and focus, and help you to conquer whatever life throws at you.
