April Bullet Journal Setup

April Bullet Journal with Tropical leaf theme

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about April's Bullet Journal setup! I feel like I say this every month but this may be one of my all time favorite spreads! I went with a tropical leaf theme this month and it's been such a fun (and flexible) theme to incorporate throughout the month. 

I hope this post will be helpful for those of guys who are also into bullet journaling!

As I said, I went with a tropical leaf theme this month. I used a couple doodle tutorials on Pinterest and Youtube to get the leaf doodles right. I also added a geometric flamingo to break up the green a bit. For the color, I got a pink Tombow marker and added the color on a plastic baggie and sprayed it with a bit of water, then pressed it onto my flamingo. For the flamingo, I used my Sakura Pigma Micron pens which are waterproof.

Unlike last month where I had separated boxes for each day on my monthly setup, I kept the lines connected. A small change and there was no real reason I did this. Just felt like a change.

April bullet journal Habit Tracker and Monthly Goals pages with tropical leaf theme

Habit Tracker and Monthly Goals

I took a leap and changed my habit tracker to a vertical layout instead of my usual horizontal layout. I really like it and I won't have to turn my notebook to fill in the habits I track! For the most part, my Monthly Goals page hasn't changed at all. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

Expense tracker and one line a day

I seriously LOVE having a one line a day page in my bullet journal because it's just such an easy, no -pressure way to journal! I like looking back at the end of the month and seeing what I was thinking about on any particular day. It's so much fun!

April Bullet Journal weekly spread with tropical leaf theme

Weekly spreads

The weekly spreads haven't changed too much but I did have fun drawing different types of leaves to highlight the spreads and the dates. I did one with banana leaves, one with palm leaves and one with monstera leaves (my favorite!). I had so much fun with it!
