Hello! It’s me Cammy back on the blog again. I’m finally back from my 2 week vacation and boy, it was so hot in Korea! I’m so glad to be back in the comfort of my own home and reunited with my planner and craft supplies. ☺
Today I’m going to share with you 4 bullet journal layouts I created using the June Stamp sets. This is my first time trying bullet journaling, so everything is completely new and exciting to me! You have to check out Stephanie’s bujo layouts because she is a huge inspiration! 🙂
I’ve always been inspired by bujo layouts, especially those from studygrams (study ig accounts). I love how such beautiful spreads can be made with such simple supplies – usually highlighters/mildliners, pens, and washi tape! So you’ll see me using these in my spreads down below, together with my June stamp sets! Let’s get started, shall we?
Here are the supplies I’m using:
- Notebook / Dot grid insert
- Fine tip black pen
- Washi tape
- Post-it notes (optional!)
- Bossy Boss stamp set
- Inspired Flora stamp set
- Purrty Over Here stamp set
- Girl with a Plan stamp set
- Seize the Day stamp set
- ML pigment inks
First up is a spread I created using the Purrty Over Here stamp set. Chubby animals in cute clothes? Love!!! We celebrated Singapore’s 52nd birthday this week, and since my national colours are red and white, I decided to use that as my theme. And the party stamp set was a perfect fit for this week.
For the stamped images, I stamped some directly onto the spread using the inks It’s Red and Peonie Pink. For the two chubby cats on the right, I stamped them onto sticker paper, fussy cut them out, colored them and stuck them to the page. I wrote my headers using Mildliners, and added pops of colour to my spread by outlining certain portions of my headers.
The next spread is created using the Bossy Boss stamp set, and I decided to go with the coffee lovers theme! I had this gorgeous sticky note and I just HAD to use it. For this spread, all images were stamped directly on to the page. The best part about using ML pigment inks? They don’t bleed through! The colours are all so beautiful and vibrant as well, they are no doubt my favourite.
I created a horizontal layout for the weekly spread, with my goals and to-do list on the side. I also attempted to create an ombre effect at the bottom right, so that the sentiment could stand out. I also added two habit trackers for this week.
This spread is my favourite out of the four! I used the Girl with a Plan and Seize the Day stamp sets for this one, and my theme was decided based on my two bright floral washi tapes on the sides. In this spread, the cute little girls were stamped onto sticker paper, while the pink one at the bottom right is stamped directly on to the page. I attempted a vertical layout for this spread, and I love how it turned out!
If you’re using sticker paper for your stamped images, you can decide on their arrangement after you’ve drawn the layout. But if you’re stamping images directly on to the page, it requires a bit more planning! You’d want to stamp the image first, and then draw your layout, so that the pen lines will not overlap your stamped image.
I first drew the boxes, wrote the dates, stuck the girls down, created a highlighted “header”, and then stamped the words “today”, “to-do” and “plan”. I always love to add the positive and motivational sentiments that always come in Lhey’s stamp sets in my planner spreads. These positive affirmations really keep me inspired whenever I look at my planner.
Last but not least, is this floral spread created using the Inspired Flora stamp set. I absolutely loooove the set to bits! It’s a perfect balance of pretty florals and positive sentiments. In this spread, I attempted to create ombre floral clusters, and layering of my stamped images.
To create the ombre effect, simply ink your stamp with the lighter colour first, then the darker colour. I also layered the beautiful sentiments over the floral images. The sentiments are always in a darker colour so that they’ll pop! 😉
I hope you enjoyed the blog post and hopefully this inspires you to incorporate MommyLhey’s stamps in your bullet journals!
