Minimal Monthly Bullet Journal Layout Ideas
This section include those monthly bullet journal layouts which would be considered minimal in style.
These layouts have less detail and are generally in black and white. Further, the more minimal style of bujo layout is closer to the original bullet journal style.
They use fewer words, lines, and details to get the same point accross as the following section.
Check out these delightful minimal monthly bullet journal layout ideas!
July Monthly Layout by @artybujo
What I like about this super simple calendar style page is it’s minimal use of art.
I did not consider this monthly spread an artistic layout because of how minimal the watercolor clouds are.
Additionally this layout uses very few lines and keeps the functionality super simple. Further, this minimal calendar includes only those boxes that need to be included in the month of July.
2. Simple July Monthly by @catandiris
What makes this minimal monthy spread unique is the simple line art and structure-less feel of the calendar.
This is another calendar style spread; however, instead of a grid or boxes for the days of the month, there are simply lines to begin each new day.
Similar to the previous layout, I’ve considered this one minimal instead of artistic due to the very minimal nature of the line art.
3. Minimal Monthly June by @itguybujo
This minimal monthy calendar by @itguybujo is a perfect representation of a minimal monthly layout.
There are absolutely no frills about this simple calendar. However, one super unique aspect of this layout is the bill list in the right-hand space next to the calendar grid.
What a useful way to keep track of bills!
4. One Page June Monthly by @jihielephant
This monthly calendar is both minimal and unique. Instead of the calendar encompassing two pages, it only fills one page.
The left page is for the simple calendar grid and the right side has the header and two additional columns for running to-do’s and goals.
However, if you wanted to use this layout, you could make those two columns whatever you wanted them to be.
5. Minimal A6 by @jihielephant
For this minimal march calendar, the notebook is an A6 sized notebook.
Another unique aspect is the minimal cursive used for the header which is vertical. You can tell that only one maybe two pens are used to create this bullet journal spread.
6. July 2019 by @movedmoments
Here is, again, a simple calendar grid utilizing no more boxes or grid squares than necessary.
One other thing that I love about this monthly spread is the way the week headers are also the lines to the top of the calendar.
Super creative way to save space and keep your monthly spread simple.
7. April 2017 Monthly by @tinyrayofsunshine
Kim of @tinyrayofsunshine is a very popular bullet journaler, and there is a reason: she makes amazing layouts!
This monthly layout is no different. Further, this monthlypage is super different than the ones we’ve shared so far! Instead of being a calendar grid, its a simple list.
This list encompasses one page while other list category headers exist on the right page. The page is super simple with barely any lines!
8. April Monthly and Habit Tracker by @journaleying
This minimal monthly page uses space really well! Not only is there a monthly grid on one page but there is also sections for tasks and goals.
Additionally, on the right page is a monthly habit tracker! Both the linework and font style used create a super minimal feel.
Artistic Monthly Bullet Journal Spreads
Different than the minimal monthly layoust, these monthly bullet journal spreads are more artistic. The more artistic spreads generally include more color, doodling, and other artistic features.
Additionally, this category encompasses anything not included in the other two categories mentaioned in this article
9. Nautical Seashell by @bulletwithe
This bullet journal monthly layout is both minimal and artistic. However, I decided to categorize it as a creative or artistic layout because of its use of color and doodles.
Additionally, I love the way the boxes are separate instead of in a grid for the calendar!
10. Fireflies in July by @youraveragebujo
This bullet journal monthly spread is super fun! The fire fly theme is phenomenal and the use of color and space is amazing in this one!
Again, this spread breaks up the boxes instead of keepin them in a grid.
11. Airplane Monthly by @gigis_journal
If you love traveling then this spread is for you! The artwork of this layout is phenomenal featuring a large airplane flying through the air.
Beside the artwork, this layout is cool because it serves as both a hello monthly page and an overview page.
At the bottom there is a timeline used to feature important dates through the month of July.
12. Tropical August by @jihielephant
This monthly spread utilizes a lot of different textures. Included in this one is watercolor paint, ink brush pens, and brown paper.
Using a variety of tools can really add to your spread!
13. July Overview by @mandyraesbujo
Here is another spread which is both a hello monthly layout and an overview page!
Additionally, the use of multiple colors is really cool! Similar to a few layouts we’ve discussed, this one simple has a list of the dates to write important dates next to.
14. June Fruits by @kaylizaa
This monthly layout is super cute featuring various brightly covered fruits. This color palete is an amazing summer layout and perfect to feature various fruits.
I love the way this one used cute little doodles and color.
15. January Cactus by @bahcampos
I am a huge houseplant fan and I know houseplants and cacti are a very popular theme.
For that reason, I decided to include an adorable monthly spread with a plant theme.
I love this one for its simplicity as well as its use of extra space. Outside of the calendar there are sections for wishlist, goals, tasks, waiting on.
16. Circular March Monthly by @decadethirty
A less popular style for monthly layouts is the circular style. These layouts are harder to find, but I found a really cool one to show off here!
I love these layouts; however, they are more difficult to create.
17. Pastel April Monthly by @maplebujo
This final monthly overview or calendar layouts is simple in design; however, it is super creative in color and doodles.
I love the use of pastel rainbow colors as well as the lettering used. Additionally, the floral doodle is phenomenal.
Hello Monthly Cover Bullet Journal Layouts
Hello monthly cover layouts are different than the traditional bullet journal monthly page. These layouts generally serve no purpose other than to welcome the new month and it’s new theme.
These pages help separate your bullet journal into the different monthly section. Occationally these pages include minimal calendars as a preview for the upcoming month. Most of the time, the hello monthly cover page is more artistic.
18. Hello April Lavendar by @weirdizziejo
The use of watercolor is this hello monthly layout is phenomenal and really beautiful! Watercolor is a great way to easily and quickly add art to any layout!
19. Hello July Jumping by @mallorydoesbujo
Here is another example of using layering or multiple types of media to create a layout. This one used various types of paper as well as ink.
Additionally, I love the motion this layout gives!
20. Midnight Sky Hello May by @jihielephant
This layout is another great example of using watercolor. This layout is covered entirely in a very dark bluish watercolor paint.
Then, there is gold specs all over the place to represent stars. This is another really easy way to add art to your month!
21. Hello June by @dayofmae
This hello page is much more simple than the previous one. It includes the header, a mini calendar, washi tape, and very simple paw prints.
Again, this layout uses layering to give a really cool affect. Additionally, this is a great example of how to use a mini calendar on a hello monthly layout!
22. Geometric Hello March by @jihielephant
What makes this layout really cool is the simplicity. The center has a circle with the header in it.
Then around the circle are various lines and shapes. You could easily recreate something similar for your monthly spread!
23. Lemons in June by @bujo.becca
Lemons have become a really popular theme recently and this layout is a phenomenal example!
Additionally this layout is so bright and happy, while the use of bright yellow lemons with bright green leaves is quite the perfect combination. Further, the minimal lettering is bouncy and fun!
24. Hello November Flowers by @jihielephant
This layout gives you another example of how to use a mini calendar in a hello monthly spread.
Additionally, the use of watercolor artwork is really fun and creative!
25. Hello June Fox by @witchiartbullet_journals
The artwork in this bullet journal layout is phenomenal. This cute little fox is the best part.
However, do not forget the rest of the layout. Not only is the fox beautiful, but the background, ground, and lettering are also just as lovely.
There are so many styles and ways you can create a monthly bullet journal layout. Of the most common are calendar, list, and hello page styles.
