Happy Summer! I am so excited to be back in my journal after far too long! For July, I decided to do a bee-themed. I’ve been wanting to do this theme for a while now and July was the perfect month! This month I keep things relatively simple with a two-page cover, a calendar spread, a monthly goals page, and then a habit tracker before I got into my weekly spreads. Let’s dive into my July 2021 Bullet Journal Set Up.

July 2021 Bullet Journal Pages
July 2021 Bullet Journal Cover
I have a love/hate relationship with my July 2021 Bullet Journal cover page. I love love love the quote on the right-hand side and the honeycombs in both corners that I used The Bees Knees stencil to create, but those little bees and the beehive proved to be trouble. This is where testing your stencils and practicing comes into play. In hindsight, I would definitely recommend starting at the top of the beehive if you are looking to use this feature of the stencil.
July 2021 Bullet Journal Calendar Spread
The monthly calendar spread is always a “go-to” in my monthly journal. I don’t know why because I rarely use it. Sometimes I just do a straight-up list of the dates (check out November’s monthly spread HERE). This time I thought it’d use the honeycomb shape to create my days. I think the little bee at the bottom is super cute as well. As you can see I made a huge mistake with the word July. If you watch the video you’ll see I wrote June in error and then used correction liquid (white-out) to fix my mistake. It’s still not perfect, I wish the Y was closer to the L, but what can you do?
Monthly To-Do List
Typically I make this much more complicated, so this time around, because I haven’t had much time to actually set up my journal, I decided to keep my monthly to-do list simple and to the point. I decided to keep my top 3 most important to-do’s at the top and then the other things that I needed to get done but just not as important at the bottom. Simple, easy, and effective.
I again went back to the basics with my habit tracker this month. Honestly, it has actually been super effective this month and I have been able to really keep up with my tracking. Not that I’ve been good with my habits this month but at least I’m keeping the habit of tracking my habits! Hahaha. I may add more design on this page if I get bored one night.
