On this blog post, I’m sharing how I decorated my April bullet journal setup. While I was drawing drafts of how I wanted my April spread to look like, the idea of showing my readers that any digital design can also be done on a paper planner came to my mind. Keep reading to learn more about my setup!

April Bullet Journal Setup – Video:
On this video, I’m re-creating the same layout that I did on my digital planner. Scroll down to watch my April digital planner setup.
Here are the preview images from my digital and bullet journal setup. The theme for this month was butterflies and flowers with a touch of pink and purple colors.
April bullet journal setup:
April’s cover page is my favorite! I wanted to have my calendar on the left page and my weekly to do’s on the right page. On the right page, I used an erasable pen to delete everything I did during week one and start week two on the same page without having to do the two pages again.
The paper planner I’m using is a Scribbles That Matter – Bullet Dot Grid Notebook. I picked up this planner specifically because it promised no ghosting when writing on the pages. When I wrote on the pages, there was a little bit of ghosting but it was barely noticeable, even when I used a marker to outline the title of April.
For my digital planner setup I used the pink flowery digital planner and the GoodNotes app. If you are an Android user, try the app Metamoji. Something that I love about digital planning is that I can move my designs around and I can easily resize all the stickers.
This page was the hardest one to create. I didn’t know on which page I wanted to paste the monthly goals printable. The first time I cut and pasted the printable, it fitted perfectly on the page. Later one, I changed my mind and cut the printable more and ended up cutting it too much, to hide the mistake I put a purple washi tape in the middle of the page to match the flowers of the printable.
Next time, I’m going to stop being a perfectionist and glue the printable without overthinking if it looks too big or too small on the page.
On my digital planner, I wrote the title of April with a bright pink color. I love the way these two pages turned out, the pink color makes the pages look simple and yet elegant. You can find the April stickers I used on both layouts here.
I love drawing monthly calendars! Something I added to my bullet journal calendar was the pink and purple flowers on the right page. Next time, I’m printing the yellow sticky note from the right page a little bit bigger.
The quote at the bottom of the planner says: “Look in the mirror, that’s your competition”. Sometimes I catch myself comparing my designs and my goals with other people and that’s not ok. I constantly remind myself that if I like what I do and show the love I have for my designs and my goals, there is no need for me to compare myself to others.
I like that the calendar looks thin on the digital version, this way I can fit more information on the right page. Next time I’m making this calendar a little bit bigger, I like the way it looks my paper planner and I can still fit a lot of information on the right page.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you loved my planner designs and found some inspiration for your own planner. Learn more about digital planning and bullet journaling join my facebook group & check out my digital planners & stickers.♡
