Hello Planning Mashers!
November is almost here so it’s time for yet another Plan With Me and this time we will be creating a cozy Bullet Journal setup with the use of some craft paper.

November is almost upon us so I’m hurrying to create my setup. As always, I asked you on Instagram what theme you’d like to see, but nothing you could agree upon – I had a lot of themes and all were different.
The only theme that came out often was coffee, but I actually already did it last year so if you’re looking for that, check out my post 27 Warm and Cozy Coffee Bullet Journal Inspirations.
It made me think though. Coffee is something cozy you have while wearing your favorite sweater and warming next to the fire. So I figured we can just go for an atmosphere like that.
Eventually, I came up with an idea of a cozy theme with the use of kraft paper. I felt like the colors I chose together with the kraft paper will create a very Fall feel to the setup.
Be sure to scroll down to see my Plan With Me video as well.
I also eventually found that I was not the only one thinking so, at the end of the post you can find tons of inspirations of other artists creating amazing Fall themes with kraft paper.
First of all, here are the supplies I used for this setup.
To begin with, I used a kraft paper pad from Archer and Olive, which is amazing. Not only does it have a 160 GSM paper, but also a dot grid, so I don’t need to wrap out pages from my Kraft journal anymore, I simply use my paper pad instead.
Another thing that really inspired me this month is the new Fall colors of acrylograph pens. They are just so pretty I needed to incorporate them somehow into my journal!
If you don’t know acrylograph pens, be sure to check my post Detailed Review Of Archer and Olive Acrylograph Pens.
Finally, if you ever decide to buy some of the Archer and Olive products – I can give you 10% off if you use code MASHA10.
One more very important part of this setup was my Silhouette Cameo. I wanted to cut out a lot of boxes and lettering so I used my Cameo 4 to do it neatly.
I have a tutorial on How To Cut Your Stickers With Silhouette Cameo if you want to check that out. If this sounds like something interesting – be sure to let me know in the comments and I’ll see if I can make some more tutorials about it.
Ok here is the cover and let me walk you through how I set it up.
I chose this one I bought a while ago and added it to my Silhouette Studio, together with some other headers.
Once all the settings were done, all I needed was to print it out and cut it with my Cameo 4. It was a bit of a difficult process since I don’t have US Letter size kraft paper pages to cut, but it worked out eventually.
I used my Tombow adhesive to add the header and then I decorated it a bit with some leaves and of course a cut of coffee, what can be cozier than this!
I decided to create boxes from craft paper to kind of divide my monthly log into sections.
As always I have a section for deadlines and events, I have a to-do list (which I really would be using more!), and an area to write content I have planned for the month.
Since I’m going pretty minimalist on my setup, I decided to just add a simple kettle and cup of tea for a more warm atmosphere.
Mood Tracker and Habit Tracker
I really hate drawing lines, so usually creating trackers is a huge hustle for me. But not this time!
This time I use craft paper to create separate trackers so it was incredibly easy! All I needed to do here is add the dates and draw some leaves in the middle of my mood tracker.
I like that I had some space to add a few cozy words to my spread. Together with the colors I chose for the setup I feel like it created a very warm page.
Uh uh! Also! The circle tracker I have here is very similar to mini trackers we have in our Resources Vault, so feel free to drop by there and get one for your setup.

Finally my favorite page for each month – a gratitude log.
I went very simple here and just added some baking doodles and a little quote at the bottom.
This month like for the past couple of months I’ll be just writing a line or two each day, so I really mostly need space here, not any type of decoration.
I added here some baking stuff because I feel like all the hot pies are super cozy and very Fall-y, wouldn’t you agree?
We are actually doing a complete baking-themed monthly setup in our Patreon, so if you’re interested be sure to check it out and maybe join our Patreon family for tons of amazing rewards!
As you probably saw, my gratitude log is on the left page so I have an empty one on the right side before I go into a weekly spread.
Well, I have a plan for it and I’ll definitely add it here once it’s finished.
But, thing is – my journal reached its limit. I’m almost out of pages, so it seems like December will be my first month in a new journal.
Therefore I’ll be using this page to plan out my migration and pages I’ll be including in my next journal.
