Today we are doing a Space Bullet Journal theme setup; welcome to yet another Plan With Me post with tons of inspiration from other creators as well.
It’s a fun and creative theme which allows you to use any colors and go as simple or as complicated as you want.
As usual, I have polled you guys on Instagram (follow me and let’s decide the next one together!) and this time, you chose the Space theme for my July setup.
And I couldn’t be happier!
Things are pretty crazy for me right now. I left the USA and flew to Bolivia, but for two weeks I have to stay alone in my hotel room in a completely different city before I can fly back.
So yeah, you can understand when I tell you I’m not feeling that inspired. Or, to be more accurate, I wasn’t.
BUT! Once we started polling theme ideas in stories, you guys gave me so many wonderful options that I could feel my creative juices flowing once again!
I think this theme was exactly the one to help me get through these times and to get into a creative mood again.
Now I’m so happy to share it all with you guys!
Also, I know space and galaxy are pretty popular Bullet Journal themes, and there are so many different ways you can go about it.
That’s why in today’s post, I also included inspirations from other creators, who went in a bit of a different direction with this theme.
Ok let’s dive in!

Space Themed Bullet Journal Setup
As always we’re starting with my own take on this theme.
I’d say it ended up looking pretty minimalist since I didn’t use that much decoration and the doodles were pretty tiny.
But I hope you still like it! And, of course, keep scrolling for inspiration from other creators.
First though, here is a little rundown of the supplies I used:
Zebra Mildliners – my go-to supplies for coloring, and they worked so well for this theme!
Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens – my favorite fineliners; I love them for the bright and rich black color and smoothness of writing.
Helix Circle Maker – I did lots of doodling of planets, and this little guy helped me to draw them all.
I started feeling creative, so I wanted to doodle a lot, but I also felt like I wanted this theme to be more minimalistic with tiny little doodles.
First of all, I think space looks much cuter that way. And secondly, because I didn’t intend to do a lot of layering or watercolor to make my planets look very different and outstanding. I wanted to make it simple and doodly.
It’s for you to decide but I think I made it pretty well. And this format works sooo well with Zebra Mildliner colors!
I pretended that my calendar is a huge sun star and others just circle around it. I think it worked out nicely.
That way there are lots of tiny doodles like I wanted, but they aren’t too crowded or weirdly placed.
Also, now this spread will always be “Summer Loving” spread since I was watching Grease for the first time while setting it up.
Yeah, I know I’m lacking a bit in pop culture, but I’m getting there!
Below is my to-do list. It’s not that I want to follow a list and do things – July is my recovery month (well, two weeks) when I’m finally back with the hubby and just going to enjoy being with him and the family again. No work or distractions.
But! I do need a lot of things – a hairdresser for one! And probably a manicure. And bought lots of self-care products I ran out of. That’s what is going on a list here.
My Nuuna is much bigger than any other notebook, so actually, I managed to include all my trackers on one page!
Probably because little planets really don’t take up that much space.
But yup, here we are – a simple but very functional page with all my trackers.
It perfectly reflects that mostly in July, I want to concentrate on being healthy and losing those extra kilos I got during my visit to the USA. And my two weeks in quarantine here.
What can I say? I’m stress-eating a lot! Food brings me too much comfort. Not healthy, I know, but I’m working on it.
Being stuck in such a weird situation really taught me just how important the family is.
My family took such incredible care of me in these difficult times, and honestly, I don’t know what I would do without them.
Now that I’m almost back home, I want to once again pay extra attention to this and be sure I always remember what amazing people are around me.
That’s why this month, we are back to a gratitude log.
I’m not sure if I’ll be using lettering or doodling my gratitudes; I’ll see how I feel that day, I guess.
My quarantine here really pushed me with my Animal Crossing!
I’m redecorating and rebuilding my island and loving it so much!
I also became more active with my friends, and that’s why I need this spread now. I keep forgetting who has what island.
This spread is the one to help me navigate and always know to who to send my next special present.
The stickers I used here are of my own design, and they are available as a printable set on my Patreon, together with tons of other goodies for your Bullet Journal.

Space and Galaxy Bullet Journal Theme Inspirations
Finally, here are inspirations from other creators. Each of them had their own take on the Space Bullet Journal theme, and it was so interesting to see it.
I hope they inspire you as much as they inspired me!
I find that cover pages are such a great inspiration.
They kind of encompass the entire monthly theme in just one page, so I love to start the list with cover pages.
This is such a fun and bright cover page. I love the doodly look of it.
It’s also pretty easy to replicate, I think, so it’s a good inspiration, especially for beginners.
Space can be a pretty dark place, and this cover page is a good example of that. There is so much mystery and horror in space and this page, I think.
Or maybe it;s just me, I find space mostly very scary.
I’m not sure this page can be called space themed, but I like that night sky vibe here.
It’s also so fun that the background is those black lines, and the moon is shiny and full of stars.
What a beautiful idea to have space coming out of a coffee mug. I always love those ideas of the whole world inside a coffee cup.
I’m also really loving the watercolor effect of this spread.
Black and gold are two colors that play against each other very well, and this spread is a perfect example.
I love how the cover page is full of simple doodles, but together they make an amazing cover page.
I love how positive and happy the astronaut is! Such a great way to show how fun space can be.
And it’s an interesting idea to make the whole page in black and white, except fo the title.
First of all, let me mention how amazing this title is. I love the shadow effect on lettering, and this one looks absolutely stunning.
It’s also a fun idea to add those doodles on strings; it somehow makes me think of those little nursery toys they put on baby cribs.
I’m definitely in love with the color scheme for this cover page. It looks beautiful, and it’s kind of fitting to both space and November.
I admire the dedication of the creator as well to fill out the entire background.
This is absolutely one of the cutest cover pages I’ve ever seen! And the colors are so bright and vivid.
And now I’m noticing it’s not actually a cover page; it’s a goodbye page. But I think it could work for both.
Nabaa has an amazing style, and it fits so perfectly this theme. Gold and black are always a stunning combination of colors.
I also really love the usage of kraft paper, be sure to check my post Cozy Bullet Journal Inspirations With Kraft Paper, to get more ideas for those.
One of the things I like about this theme is that you can use any colors you want. I feel like the cosmos have all the colors imaginable inside it.
And I see the creator used Crayola Super Tips, which are probably the best pens for the occasion since they come in so many colors and at a very affordable price.
What a fun idea to create a wreath with space and galaxy doodles!
And I love the gold accents.
Miniature doodles make the page look extra cute, and this spread is a perfect example.
I love that it has this minimalist feel to it, but it also is so fun and full of doodles.
This looks incredible. It’s a mix of magic and danger the cosmos provides.
I have no idea how to create an art piece like this one, but you definitely can try out this Skillshare class. And you can take it for free, together with thousands of other classes, because if you follow my link, you get 2 weeks FREE of premium access to all the courses on the platform.
I love this cute doodly style. And is it just me, or does this cover page remind you of the little prince too?
I also like that the creator used black paper and then washi tape to add it to the page. Looks adorable and so fitting to this style.
The space and galaxy theme doesn’t have to be super colorful; as you can see from this page, it works just as well.
I like the idea of using patterns inside planets to add more variety to them.
This page is the complete opposite of the previous one. It’s all full of colors that just jump at you in a good way!
Somehow this makes me think of Guardians of the Galaxy movies.
Beautiful cover page with one more watercolor galaxy on the background.
I see there is a Tombow brush pen here; I wonder if those were used as watercolor or not?
Next up is a monthly log! For me, somehow, it’s a must-have spread, even though I don’t use it that much.
Let’s check out these monthly log inspirations.
This is such a beautiful page, and I love the retro feel you get with the combination of black, silver, and gold pens.
The quote and illustration around it are also absolutely amazing.
As always, I’m absolutely in love with the contrast between white and black paper. Even though here, I guess it’s black ink, not pieces of black paper.
All you need to use this one is pens that work on black paper.
Somehow as soon as I looked at this page, I started thinking of the Nintendo games of the 80s.
The retro feeling of this spread is amazing. It makes you also think of those amazing classic sci-fi tv shows like Start Track.
I loved the cover page made by this creator, so I knew I’d love the monthly log as well.
This spread is so perfect – you get a lot of space for all the entries, and there is still some space for decorations.
Another beautiful play on the black and gold color combination. I love all those star combinations on the page.
I also almost fully missed that there is the word January on the left side of the page.
This is a fantastic illustration, and no wonder – Hayley is amazing with her galaxy watercolor drawings.
But this is also not a very functional monthly log, more like a decorative spread.
I wonder if this spread is actually in black and white or if it’s simply a filter on the image. I can’t tell!
Habit trackers are a great way to improve your life and build better routines. I try to include them in every monthly setup.
This is such a neat and well-organized habit tracker. And I love that it has space for so many habits.
I love this look, but for me, I probably miss a lot the dates and days of the week since it helps me to see how my habits fluctuate depending on the time of the month and days of the week.
This is such a beautiful mood tracker; I love the swirl of planets here.
I also really like the cute smiley faces at the bottom of the page as a key for the colors.
I absolutely love this galaxy on the left and how it almost leaks down from the page.
It’s amazing how many trackers are in this! It’s a habit tracker, mood tracker, sleep tracker, and weight tracker. So cool to have this one big tracker for all those things.
All those shades of blue look so beautiful. But it also kind of makes me think of the sea rather than space.
The graph on this sleep tracker looks great; I never thought of doing it that way.
This is such an adorable mood tracker. I’m a huge fan of drawing tiny doodles.
The quote is also amazing. And I think it fits very well the space theme as well, not just everyday life.
I just adore the dot background of this tracker. It really helps to bring all the doodles together and make it look like one big composition.
I love the colors as well, but even though the pens are on the right, I still can’t figure out what pens these are. Let me know in the comments if you know!
I never thought of pastel colors as befitting this theme, but surprisingly it works so well.
Also, how amazing is this brush lettering for word Instagram?
The habit tracker looks amazing, but I’m also really intrigued by that content planner. It seems very functional, and it looks so neat.
Extra points to this spread for using my favorite Zebra Mildliners.
I love circle trackers. Even though they are hard to draw, they look amazing. This one look like a planet!
Oh, and here is a little tip – it really helps to draw circle trackers if you have a stencil for that. And I haven’t found a better stencil than this one.
Such a cute and minimalist-looking set of spreads. I’d be very interested in seeing that mood tracker filled with all that yellow; it will look amazing, I’m sure!
And if you’re looking for more inspiration, check my post Bullet Journal Budget Trackers To Manage Your Finances.
This is such a beautiful mood tracker, and it’s so fun how the creator played with colors. It’s very clear what color stands for each mood, but also, every planet has a few different shades and color accents.
Weekly spreads are the page you create the most every month, so I always try to find many inspirations for you.
A very simple vertical weekly; just add headers and some colorful background behind them.
And yet this spread looks amazing and with a lot of space to plan your days.
I love those thick black shadows on daily boxes; they stand out so much, especially compared to the beautiful colorful background.
I also like the fun idea of adding those hanging planets on top to add the dates.
I wish I could see this page after the pen, it’s such an interesting concept, and I wonder how the creator will be filling out the spread.
I also really like these subtle purple accents on planets.
I don’t know why, but somehow having a whale here makes complete sense.
I also really love the amazing colors used for this illustration. So vivid and beautiful.
The brush lettering for days of the week is incredible, and I love how the background of the headers is in the same colors of the washi tape.
Did you notice the subtle shadows around the boxes? This effect makes them stand out!
I’m just noticing that, somehow, there are so many vertical weekly spreads in this theme.
This one is perfect, though. And I love that there is that red shadow to the boxes at the bottom.
What a cute and happy-looking weekly spread. I love the doodles on the top; they kind of look almost like Christmas decorations.
And how amazing is the lettering of the daily headers!
Mini weekly spread in a mini journal. These shades of blue are very beautiful!
ANd I love the quote. I never thought about it, but it’s so true!
Here is a horizontal weekly for a change, looking amazing with all that gold. And I love that type of lettering for daily headers.
Oh, and if you decide to get the acrylograph one (or anything else from Archer and Olive), be sure to use my code MASHA10 to get 10% off.
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of a black paper journal. But this spread makes me rethink things. It’s absolutely stunning!
I wonder if those moons are drawn or stickers?
This is a pretty and very clean-looking spread. Again I’m so in love with this brush lettering.
I also like this idea of a girl having plants running around her head. Like your brain has a whole universe inside it.
Such an incredible idea to mix the phases of the moon with the illustrations of the night sky.
I would say this is probably more of a moon theme rather than space, but it probably works for both.
What a creative idea to make planets like little balloons. I was almost expecting them to carry a house, like in “UP”.
I also love those colors Hayley used; so full and rich.
Black and white pages can look stunning, and this creator always manages to convince me of that.
I can’t imagine how long it took to draw the moon in stippling. But it was absolutely worth it; the moon looks incredible.
Another black and white page, and this one is pretty simple, and I bet it didn’t take that much time to create.
It’s perfect proof that you don’t need to spend hours on your spreads for them to look pretty.
