21 January Bullet Journal Cover Pages
Here is a thing about Bullet Journal themes - they can literally be anything you like. There are no rules here; it's your journal.
So even though you'll see here some January theme ideas connected to the beginning of the year and the season, you can just as easily use flowers or bees for your winter theme.
For my January 2022 setup, I did a theme with my favorite things. Which was super fun and a good exercise to remind me that there is more to life than just work haha
I was also obsessed with this effect or adding color to just tiny elements in each doodle. You can click "read more" to check other pages I created back then.
Fireworks are a perfect theme for January since the new year is basically several days of fireworks non-stop.
I love all the elements of this cove page, like the subtle shadows and the beautiful lettering. And speaking of that, if you want to learn some, be sure to check my Beginner's Guide To Brush Lettering.
There is so much beauty in a winter forest! All the snow shining and the trees standing out as dark shadows. I've always loved being in a forest, no matter the season.
This is a beautiful example of the theme, and I love the idea of having the illustration in the shape of the moon.
This theme can go in so many ways, and I love this one with the contrast between black and gold. These are such a perfect color combination.

Winter City Scapes
I love the colors of this building and the warm feeling of the yellow color of the light from the windows.
I think it's also a great addition to having the snowflakes.
As always, Julia astonishes me with her talent. This seems like such a simple cover page to draw, and yet it's so beautiful.
I love that she added the stars to the dark sky and the hatching for the shadows on the mountains. All the contrasts here are absolutely stunning.
Mandalas are a perfect idea to start the year. They are beautiful, easy to draw, and it can be a calming and therapeutic process. A perfect way to relax and detach a bit from the holiday stress.
If you don't know how to draw one, simply check my post How To Draw Mandalas In Your Bullet Journal.
Setting up a brand new journal while dealing with the holidays can be pretty stressful, so maybe you don't need to overcomplicate it. Just try our minimalist theme.

Remember how I said that you can create a flower theme in winter? Well, here is a good example of that.
I also love that contrast with colors and a black-and-white flower.
This is a beautiful cover page, and I love how the colors perfectly represent the cold snow. The polaroid idea is also so cute!
It's hard to pick a name for this theme. At first, I thought it was coffee, then jam, and now it seems like cans of cyder.
Let me know in the comments if you can come up with something to call it.
Flowers And Kraft Paper
One more floral theme, but I just had to include it in this list. it's so pretty! And it has my two favorite elements - flowers and kraft paper.

These tiny baked food are so cute and delicious; I just want to have some!
I love how the creator made use of all the different shades of browns and oranges.
The abstract theme is super fun and easy to create; just add lines and random shapes. Or a flower, like on this cover page.
This kind of reminds me of my 2021 Bullet Journal setup; only I went for brighter colors on my pages.
Such a unique theme and I love the way it was executed on this cover page.
Again I want to talk about the contrasts of colors, but it's just such a powerful creative tool.
Cats And Books
I'm more of a dog person myself, but how can I not love that cozy and fun cover page?
These cats really seem like they are having so much fun.
This cover page is probably impossible to recreate, at least for me. But it's so stunning; I simply had to have it here.
I also really admire all those straight lines on the letters and numbers. I can never get my lines so perfect!
I love how minimal and gentle this spread is. It has such an amazing aesthetic look to it.
Sometimes less is more, and this is a perfect proof of this concept.
Such a stunning cover page and a wonderful take on a succulent / houseplants Bullet Journal theme. These are actually pretty easy to doodle!
Just check my post with Succulent And Plant Doodle Tutorials.
Traditionally this is usually the theme for May, but remember that you're the one making rules in your journal. This is also a great cover page idea for a blackout book.

What's your favorite fast food? Mine are all here - pizza and french fries. Maybe not the best theme to have in January if you decide to stay healthier, but it's a fun one for sure.
And this one would work so well with fast food stickers from my shop.
