3 Simple Bullet Journal Templates

3 Simple Bullet Journal Templates

Over the years, I have acquired an arsenal of planners, notepads and notebooks. They’re the stationery products I covet the most and I always justify my purchases by designating a specific use for each one. For example, “Oh, I’ll use this one to track work-related tasks and this one for home projects.”

As a result, all of my most important ideas, tasks and projects are spread across no fewer than 3 journals. My current system can easily be described as organized chaos. And to no surprise, it’s no longer working for me and my growing need to simplify and have everything in one place. Sound familiar to anyone?

3 Simple Bullet Journal Templates

In comes bullet journaling. I’ve known about this system for some time, but have always felt a little intimidated by the methodical nature of this practice and fearful that I’ll abandon it after a week or two. However, I’ve decided to give it a go at last and have been taking baby steps. First, I started using this habit tracker last year. And now, I’m testing out a few different weekly log designs with the hopes that the process will stick.

And since I figured I’m not alone, I thought I’d share three templates that I developed using this grid notepad. There’s one for tracking your weekly tasks/notes/goals, another for your daily schedule and lastly, one for logging your daily habits, water intake and sleep patterns. Like I said, I’m starting small, but hopefully with time I’ll work my way up to filling this notebook. So tell me, are you a BuJo expert and do you have any tips for a newbie like me?

Happy New Year! I hope you are feeling refreshed after the long weekend and ready to tackle all of your dreams in 2017. If you're anything like me, that probably means you have a mile-long to do list of everything you would like to achieve this year. In order to keep my goals in sight, I am working to cultivate daily habits that will help me stay on track while still making time for the things that bring me joy. Since I am a visual person, I created this habit tracker to help me log my progress and stay motivated. I hope it will lead to a healthier, more productive daily routine.

It is available for download for free here. Also, if you are looking for additional tools to help you stay focused this year, be sure to check out my desktop goods

Printable Christmas Wrapping Paper

minimal hand-lettered holiday gift wrap | free download

I'm slowly making progress on my gift shopping, which is a huge improvement and a bit of a relief compared to where I was a few days ago. To be honest, I am doing the majority of it online this year, since I only lasted about an hour during an unsuccessful outing over the weekend. I'm fairly patient when it comes to traffic and mobs of people, but combine that with a cold and let's just say I would have been better off if I had stayed in bed.

I did however manage to snag some festive gift wrap. I typically go for more subdued tones at the holidays, but thought a bold pattern would be a fun alternative this year. I went ahead and created this pretty hand-lettered gift wrap to compliment it and turned it into a free printable for you to use as well. There are two sizes available for download depending on your printer's capabilities. Hopefully it makes you just as excited as I am to wrap your gifts.

Let's Feast Dinner Party Printables

Fall Feast Free Printables | Dinner invite, menu & place cards by Evermore Paper Co.

As the days get cooler and the hats and gloves come out, I am envisioning many hearty meals and fireside cocktails in the near future. Often times, my favorite nights are the ones spent huddled inside with loved ones and barrels of laughter. So with the feast of all feasts (Hey Thanksgiving!) quickly approaching and the fact that I will still be in London during the festivities, I can't help but feel a little tinge of fomo. On the other hand, however, it does present a new opportunity for Travis and I to come up with what I'm sure will be a fun and offbeat way to celebrate the holiday, which of course is something to look forward to.

In the meantime, I decided to channel my love of a good meal into some pretty downloads for your next dinner party. Complete with invite, menu and place cards, I hope these printables will help set the right tone for a cozy night ahead with friends and family. Click here to download.

PRINTING INSTRUCTIONS

I recommend printing on 8.5" x 11" white card stock. Trim marks have been added to assist with cutting the printed pieces down to the correct size. Here are the final measurements for each piece:

Invite: 5" x 7"
Menu: 4" x 8.5"
Place Card: 3.5" x 2" (when folded)

TIPS & TRICKS

  • After juicing the fruit, I often strain it once through a mesh sieve or tea strainer to remove any pulp. 
  • Use a lime to wet the rim of your glass before adding salt to it and serve in an old-fashioned glass, like this.
  • For a spicier option, replace the agave nectar or simple syrup with a jalapeno-infused simple syrup or add cayenne pepper to your salted rim
  • Use larger ice cubes to prevent your drink from becoming watered down. I recommend these.

Once cutting is complete, fold the card in half. For the gift wrap, I recommend using copy paper to make wrapping easier.
