April Bullet Journal Printables
My April Bullet Journal Spread has taken on the spring feel. I have been really looking forward to April. I do love snow in the winter; especially snow days. But, when March rolls around and there is no snow in sight; I’m definitely ready for spring time. My kids play Spring soccer and I do not like sitting in the cold for games and practices when we are supposed to be playing “spring” soccer. So April has been much awaited for me. I really like hearing the birds as they come back and getting that fresh smell of the plants and trees getting ready to bloom and get back to their green selves.
Monthly Cover Page and Calendar
I start my April Planner layout with a flower filled cover page and calendar. I’ve added a cute little butterfly to go with the flowers even though they may not start to make their appearance until the end of the month.
On my printables page you can get a dated calendar for this month or a blank calendar that you can use to fill in your own numbered dates. All of my printables mentioned here are FREE and can be found on my passworded printables page. To get the link and password simply sign up to join the printables email list. I’ll send you the page link and the password for access. From there you can download all of my printables; including my free bullet journal printables. I’ll send you alerts when new printables are added to the page.
My monthly overview printable includes a section for monthly goals and projects, monthly thoughts and inspiration, and notes. This works as my brain dump for the month. I can migrate projects and notes into the appropriate weekly spread if need be or include them on a master list of projects if they warrant it.
A lot people track their moods in their bullet journal or planner. I, however, like to track my productivity. My April productivity tracker features lily-like flowers. My color key for productivity features warm colors this month. I categorize my productivity as no, little, average, high and super high. I tried to make sure that my colors are distinctive enough from each other this month; because I used a shamrock tracker for March and had some issues with just using different shades of green. I was hard to tell the different shades I chose apart. This productivity tracker is available on my printables page, as well as other themed and plain productivity trackers/ mood trackers. The key area is blank so that you can use your own terms for how you want to track things.
For my bullet journal weekly spreads for April, I’m using my weekly spread that includes a to-do list, daily blank area, and a weekly overview. This is listed as Weekly Spread Type 3 on my Printables Page. My journal is approximately a half-page planner, so I’m using the 2 half-pages spread. This sheet is formatted as a landscape oriented 8.5 x 11 sheet with a half page division. It’s really easy to cut the page in half and paste it onto my two page spread for the week. You could also easily use this layout for a full size planner or choose the full page weekly planner printable that is available. This pages are really easy to print to scale by reducing the printed size from the printer properties window. I print a full size sheet at 68% for a half page sized planner. You can experiment to get the perfect percentage for your unique bullet journal or planner. I chose to print the pink outlined version to keep with the warm color trend for this month.
I include all the planner weekly spreads needed for the month when I set up the new month in my bullet journal. I like to do this so that I can input all the important dates onto the weekly spreads at the beginning of the month at once. If I need to add any pages or printables for the month later, I include them after the weekly spreads.
All of the free planner printables that I mention as well as my other free bullet journal printables are available on my printable page.
