Bullet Journal Monthly Cover Page Ideas
If you’re looking for some Bullet Journal theme ideas, I’ve got you covered with these Bullet Journal monthly cover pages.
It’s not the easiest thing to pick something new and exciting to decorate every month of the year, and sometimes it might feel overwhelming
But I learned myself that I use my journal more if it’s fun and creative, plus it’s really a great way to work on your creativity. And nothing represents a full monthly theme more than a cover page.
If you need some inspiration for creating an artistic and decorative monthly cover page for your Bullet Journal this month, then you’re in luck because I’ve got plenty of inspiring ideas right here!
Keep in mind that even though I always campaign for being creative in your journal, it’s really not a necessity. If you want to make simple pages – that’s totally fine!
Likewise, if you want to keep the same theme every month and not change it around all the time – it’s totally fine.
Remember that it’s your journal, which means you’re the one setting rules for yourself.

Bullet Journal Monthly Cover Page Ideas
Whether you want something artistic, doodly, or maybe abstract, I've got you covered with these cover pages. So I'm sure you'll find here something that fits your style and your planning needs.
January Cover Page
Amazing and fun idea for your January cover page. The illustration is quite easy to replicate, and turning your cover page in a Dutch door is super fun. I'm also really loving that black-and-white aesthetic.
February Cover Page
A beautiful cover page that includes flowers and love letters. It's a fun way to pay tribute tp Valentine's day, but be subtle about it.
March Bold Floral Cover Page
Flowers are an amazing theme for any month of the year, but, of course, it especially fits for Spring, I think. I love this cover page and how flowers are a background to this huge monthly sign.
April Cover Page
This cover page looks absolutely stunning, and "books" is a very fun theme you can approach in so many creative ways.
A fun idea to try is to use your favorite game as your theme. For me, in May 2020, it was all about Animal Crossing so that's what I went with.
I love the idea of creating themes based on things you like. In June, I decided to go with a makeup theme since I like makeup, and June is my birthday month, so I wanted to make it special.
July Cover Page
Photo cameras are such a fun theme idea! And I love the colors used on this cover page; they are so happy and Summer themed.
Tropical leaves are a fun theme to try in Summer, they are very easy to draw, and you get to use all your different shades of green markers.
Honeybee Theme Cover Page
Bees are usually something I think about in summer, but as you know - your journal your rules. If you want to have a bee theme in September - go for it! Nobody can tell you what you can and can't do in your journal.
October Cover Page
October is a spooky month, so it's a fun way to explore this. I love how this page has those elements, but at the same time looks very cozy and aesthetic.
Not many things are cozier in Fall than coffee (and books), so it was definitely a perfect theme for me to do in November, and I can recommend you the same for sure.
December Cover Page
December is a great holiday month, so it's definitely a fun idea to bring the holiday spirit to your Bullet Journal pages. For this cover page, I also really love that the cover is on the left and the monthly log is on the right; it kind of saves some space for sure!

Bullet Journal Supplies
Before I share with you a freebie and some more resources, I thought I’d mention a few supplies you might enjoy when creating your cover pages.
Here are my favorites:
- Fineliners. These are the blood of all your Bullet Journal pages and are perfect for drawing cover pages. I recommend trying Sakura Pigma Micron Fineliners.
- Markers. If you want to add color, you’ll need some markers. I recommend getting Crayola Super Tips, since they come in many colors and are pretty affordable.
- Brush Pens. Perfect to create beautiful lettering headers. I love using smaller ones, like Tombow Fudenosuke.
- A Journal. Of course, you’ll need one! My go-to is, of course, Archer and Olive, and you can get 10% off with my code MASHA10.
