Bullet Journal Monthly Log Inspirations
These are some creative takes on different formats of a monthly log, and I always recommend you to try out different things before you find out what works for you the best.
Vertical Monthly Log With Washi Tape
Beautiful vertical monthly setup. It’s a good idea to have every other line highlighted; that way, it’s easier to navigate and see what line is for what day.
Also, isn’t it super cool how just one little piece of paper can decorate a page so well?
Black & White Monthly Log
Here is another take on the classic vertical monthly log. With this two-page format, you have so much more space to write down anything you need.
I’m also a huge fan of how Hayley plays around with the contrast of white and black.
Lemon Monthly Spread
Such a beautiful and gentle monthly log! It really makes me wish I had used more watercolor to achieve this beautiful color effect.
I also like the idea of having the days of the week at the bottom of the calendar. Never thought of doing it that way!
Artistic Monthly Log
I feel like this maybe is not the most functional setup for a monthly log, but artistically it’s amazing!
This also probably would work for a 30-day month only.
Colored In Monthly Calendar
Such a cool and bright monthly log, I love how Jess is always so creative.
The idea of making the calendar boxes in color is super fun!
This has been my favorite format for a very long time.
I love the little details in this one, like a shadow on the calendar and special dates marked in color.
Two Page Monthly Log
I love how the white space is used here. The page looks so light and spacious.
I’d probably fill it out with doodles; empty space makes me feel uncomfortable. And I’d definitely ruin it!
Green Monthly Log
This is definitely more of my style! It’s full of decorative elements but also doesn’t look too crowded.
Those colors also look amazing together. I’m not a huge fan of bright colors like that, but these are great.
My approach to colored in calendar monthly log. I didn't need that much space for extra stuff, so it allowed me to have fun with decorating it with washi tape.
Floral Horizontal Monthly
This format really allows you to have too much space for decorating!
I think she made this page look absolutely gorgeous with all the bright colors and beautiful drawings.
My own take on a monthly log is different, in many wyays because this is a square journal and iut allows to play around and change things up a bit.
Harry Potter Monthly Log
Here is one more cool idea on how to fill out empty space around the monthly log – just add a quote.
Mini Monthly Log
I love how this monthly lof has this clean minimalist look and the creator plays so much with an empty space. Stylish and practical!
Divided Monthly Spread
I find this monthly log very confusing. Which date is which day?
But it looks pretty cool, and the design is really not something I’ve ever seen.
Watercolor Monthly Spread
Super cute monthly log with beautiful watercolor work.
I also really love the contrast between the gentle watercolor colors and the deep black lines of the doodles.
Mini Calendar Monthly
If you want something between the two-page calendar and just a mini-calendar, this is a perfect idea for you.
You have a larger calendar that still has space to write things down, but it’s also very compact, occupying just half a page
Blue Monthly Log
The more of these monthly layouts I see, the more I want to try them for myself.
The last one was all about decorations, this one also has a lot of space to write down your monthly plans.
Two Page Floral Monthly Log
I don't usually need that much space for my monthly logs, especailly considering that this notebook is larger than your usual A5. But it looks stunning and I'm in love with this color combination!
Horizontal Monthly Log
So this log is decorated vertically, but it’s actually a horizontal monthly log.
And I love how the ribbons so elegantly divide the month by weeks.
Disney Calendar Monthly Log
I had to include this one because of how cute the illustrations are here.
The calendar is not straight, so it might be a bit confusing, but I kind of like it, I think it makes it look very whimsy.
I guess I have to take back my previous words about the circle log not being perfect for a busy month.
This month seems to be very busy, and I love how she manages to fit it all in, even when there are many things happening in one day.
Bunny Monthly Log
I always love the mix of two different monthly logs. Because I totally get all the benefits of other types of monthly logs, but I still love it so much to have a calendar view.
Extra points for the beautiful brush lettering here
Minimalist Monthly Spread
This lineup is full of brightly colored monthly spreads decorated with doodles and stationery, but you definitely can take a calmer approach and go all minimalist with your spread. This one is a fantastic example of that!
Two Page Vertical Monthly
First of all – this is such beautiful watercolor work!
Secondly – I love that it’s a detailed overview of the month, including a habit tracker. Pretty much all you need to see your entire month at a glance.
Halloween Themed Monthly Spread
Again I’m loving the contrast between the black and white. It must’ve taken a lot of time to fill out all that space with black ink.
Color Coded Circle Monthly
I love that with a circle monthly log, you can always add more layers to add more information.
Also, adding color coding is a fun and useful idea to organize your busy month.
Mixed Monthly Log
I absolutely love this idea of mixing the calendar view with the vertical monthly. Very fun idea if you still haven't decided for yourself which is best for you.
