December Bullet Journal | Red & Gold

This time of year is one of my favorite times of the year, and the only redeming quality of winter here in Michigan. Each year I go crazy for my December bullet journal utilizing gold and red (my favorite holiday colors). This year is, of course, no different. Check out my December bullet journal below.

December Bullet Journal Theme | Red & Gold

Per usual, this month’s theme is red and gold. I generally used watercolor paint for the red and stamp ink, gold washitape, and Sakura Pentouch Gold Paint Pen for gold. This year, I went all out and covered the majority of my pages in red pain. I then added gold detailing via themethods described before. The title page is no different as it features a goldcircle. Outside of the circle is red paint and inside of the circle is golddetailing. December is written in gold, andthree gold Christmas trees are drawn minimally. Over the top of thered paint is gold Christmas trees added via stamp. These are not very bold andcan really only be seen when the light shines on the gold ink.

December Layouts

Before even entering my December layouts, I created a gift planning page. This year’s gift planning page is similar to that of last year and was placed before my hello December page since I began Christmas gift shopping in November. This spread features gold cursive titling off of which 8 ornament bulbs are hanging. The left page features two green bulbs, a red bulb, and a yellow-gold bulb. The right page features two red bulbs, a green bulb, and one yellow-gold bulb. Each bulb features gift ideas and pricing of these gifts for one person or couple.

Following the gift layout is the hello page described before, then the weekly pages. For each of the weekly layouts, I sketched in 7 columns per usual, except this time the columns are outlined in gold. Outside of the columns, everything is painted red and gold washi tape lines the right-most side. The main headers are in gold cursive and the letters which show the day of the week are in a minimal cursive followed by the date in a subscript. Just like in the title page, over the red paint are minimal gold Christmas trees from stamps.
