Join the #doodlewithusinjuly challenge!

Once again I’m excited to announce our Instagram challenge for the month of July. It’s the #doodlewithusinjuly challenge created by me and Christina from @christina77star! The theme for July’s Prompts is ‘At the beach’.

IG Challenge July - doodlewithusinjuly

As we did last month, all the doodles are part of one big comprehensive picture. Imagine each day to be one piece of the puzzle. So, at the end of the month you will have one big doodle picture! 🙂 If you decide to follow this way, you’ll have to create a table with 5×6 + 1 boxes and you shouldn’t add the days on the top. You can also make the boxes and dates in pencil, if you don’t want the lines to obscure the end result. It’s totally up to you. If you don’t feel like drawing in the lines yourself, we’ve created a printable that you can just stick inside your bullet journal with the prompts on the side so you’re ready to go! To download the printable click here.

All you have to do is to draw something according to the day’s prompt, take a photo of it, and share it with us. Don’t forget to add the hashtag #doodlewithusinjuly. 31 days of doodles that will hopefully get you to be creative and have fun! We’re excited to see what you share!

Plan With Me: Mermaid Theme

File Jun 13, 10 28 52 AM

I decided to film another plan with me on this cute mermaid theme that combines the functionality of a weekly layout, which I love, while still looking pretty with a cute doodle thrown in there. I used a layout very similar to this a couple weeks back, which I received so many compliments on, that I decided to replicate it by switching out the doodle, and voila! I have myself a totally different looking week while the layout still stays the same. With bullet journaling, I find that cutting corners and finding shortcuts in creating layouts saves time, as you develop layouts that fit your needs. So enjoy my latest video below on how to recreate this theme. I must add a disclaimer that while filming this video, I had some technical issues with my phone but nevertheless, I hope you enjoy it!
