Plan With Me September Bullet Journal Layout

by - September 05, 2020

Fall starts this month! I am back in school and I can't wait for the weather to cool down. For my bullet journal layouts this month, I went with fall colors, and my theme was falling leaves. I usually stick to using pastel colors in my bullet journal so I decided that this month I would switch things up! Keep reading, to see how I set up my bullet journal layouts for September. :)

I made this set up very similar to my August bullet journal layouts, though the design is very different. Last month I did more of a minimalist-style layout because I used only two colors (green and black), but this month I used around five or six markers because I wanted this layout to have the colors of changing leaves.

Last month, I used new fonts on my layout, which I found on Creative Market. I did the same thing this month, but with different fonts. It takes me longer to make my layouts now, but I enjoy trying out the new fonts!

If you want to see how you can easily use the fonts on Creative Market in your bullet journal, you can read Plan With Me August Bullet Journal Layouts. I have a whole section on how to use the fonts found on Creative Market in your bullet journal in that post.

September Bullet Journal Supplies

  • Crayola SuperTips - Crayola SuperTips are used on almost all of my spreads! They are great for beginners, really affordable, and there are tons of colors. If you are looking to buy some markers to use in your bullet journal, then I recommend these ones.
  • Ecoline Brush Pens - The Ecoline brush pens are the newest addition to my stationery collection and I really like them, but they are on the pricey side. The ink is really smooth and juicy though so I think they were worth the money. :)
  • Black Sharpie Pen - If you have read probably any of my other posts, then you will know that I always use a black sharpie pen for writing in my bullet journal.
  • Tombow Fudesonuke Brush Pens - Another great option for beginners, the Tombow Fudesonuke brush pens come in a two-pack: one hard tip, and one soft tip. I used the hard tip Tombow Fudesonuke brush pen for the calligraphy on this layout.
  • White Gel Pen - I use a white gel pen to mark out any mistakes I make on my layouts, and while it is sometimes still a little bit noticeable, it doesn't bother me.
  • Mechanical Pencil - I use a mechanical pencil to do some of the hand lettering before I use ink especially since I used new fonts on this layout. I also used a mechanical pencil to sketch in the rest of the layout.
  • A Ruler - I always want straight lines and I definitely can't get them without a ruler!

Header

For this layout, I used the font "Hello Paris" from Creative Market and because I wanted to use both fonts in the header, I wrote "hello September" instead of just "September. I really like using the fonts on Creative Market in my bullet journal, so if you are looking for font inspiration for your bullet journal, I would recommend checking them out.

I used a Tombow Fudesonuke hard-tip brush pen for the calligraphy and Crayola SuperTips (My review of the Crayola SuperTips) for the serif font.

Doing serif fonts is easier than it looks! Simply write the word, you want to do in a serif font, and then go over the downstrokes, to make them thicker, just like when doing faux calligraphy.

Mini Calendar

I have been doing a mini-calendar every month this year (except for January when I missed making a monthly layout due to being sick) and I still love them! The size of my mini calendar varies from month to month.

This month, I went with a very simple mini-calendar. I didn't even write the days of the week at the top, but I always put Monday first so it doesn't make a difference to me. I also put the numbers for the days, in the center of each box and I like how it turned out.

Highlights

Pretty self-explanatory. I write down everything that happened during the month that I want to remember. :)

Then I go through later and pick out my favorite memories and add them to my "Best of 2020" layout.

Goals

If you read my posts regularly, then you will already know this, but for those of you who are reading my blog for the first time, this is how I do my goal setting for the year.

At the beginning of the year, I created a "21 Before 2021" layout, on which I wrote down all of my goals for the year.

Each month, I look back at the goals I created for the year, and I set a few mini-goals, that help me get closer to my goals for the year.

This month, I am doing six goals instead of my usual five, because I had enough room on my bullet journal layout.

To-Do

Last month, I went back to having a column with my tasks for the month and because I enjoyed having it, I am going to continue to use it instead of having a column with the days of the month.

I may use simple weekly layouts along with this for my to-do list, but I haven't decided yet.

October

I always add a spot for the next month in the year, but I make it small because I usually don't use it. It's just nice to have in case I have something big coming up in the next month. :)

Habit Tracker

In July, I did six habit trackers, but because they were all too much to keep up with, I went back to only tracking one habit per month, especially since school has started for me.

The habit I am tracking this month is to "get up before 7 AM". During the school week, I get up at 5:30, but I also want to start waking up earlier on the weekends so I can create a habit of always going to bed early and waking up earlier.

The Quote

I still had a lot of room left on this layout, so I looked on Google for a quote about fall. I knew I had to pick a long one since I had so much room left on the page!

The quote I decided to do is, "Anyone who thinks that fallen leaves are dead, has never watched them dancing on a windy day."

The lettering was a little off-centered so I added some leaf doodles, to help balance it out. If you want some tips on making your bullet journal quotes (And all of your layouts in general) look better you can read Tips for Improving Your Bullet Journal Quote Pages.

I'm sure you have probably noticed by now that there is a large maple leaf in the center of this layout. I drew the maple leaf in a medium-brown color, so hopefully, it won't be too dark, when I try writing on top of it.

Overall, I really like how this layout turned out and I am going to enjoy using it this month!
