22 Hello August Bullet Journal Layout Ideas

I am fairly late to the August party with my re-brand and summer semester grabbing so much of my time. However, I hate to leave you hanging without a hello monthly roundup. So, here are 22 hello August bullet journal layouts ideas!

1. Underwater by @julia.pezowicz

I love the dimension of this two-page layout. If you can’t tell. the first page has a hole cut through it revealing a beautiful underwater scene! If you love this type of nautical under-water theme, check out more just like it HERE.

2. August Mountains by @fenkesjournal

I love the bold lines yet simplistic feel of this nature and mountainous themed hello august page. This one reminds me of my tattoo!

3. Avocado by @positive.journaling

Do you love avocados? This is such a cute title page in celebration of the avocado! Additionally, it’s such a fun green color.

4. Feathers and Branches by @bujotrulla

The artwork in this layout is stunning! I love the gentle watercolor feel of it. Also, I love the combination of feathers and branches together.

5. Sunshine Yellow Hello August

This is a hello august page from my 2018 bullet journal. I love the use of yellow and sunshine so, naturally, I created this bright yellow sun page for august! Such a great summer aesthetic.

6. Lights & Crystals by @joanne_plans

I love this combination of styles. Not only are there lightbulbs but there are crystals and a geometric pattern in the header. This layout is gorgeous, yet minimal!

7. Hello August by @_coffeeandsarcasm_

What makes this layout stand out to me is the accident vibe of it. The different aspects seem almost accidental with the paint smudge and imperfect circles. It’s a phenomenal hello layout.

8. Hello August Lemonade by @marta_noli

Lemonade is a classic summer drink. The way @marta_noli depicts this drink in her hello August layout is super creative. I love the more cute and animated look on the left, then the more black and white photo-realistic version on the right.

9. Back to School Stationery

Here is another spread I created; however, I created this one for a client instead of my own plan-with-me. For many people, they are going back to school or getting ready to go back to school in August. So, it makes sense that school supplies are a viable theme for August!

10. Alien Invasion by @bujoforstars

You do not see themes like this one very often, so, you have to appreciate a good August alien invasion!

11. August Crystals by @tinysilverlinings

Here is another classic layout idea. The geometric, floral, and crystal mix and beautiful yet delicate. I love this combo of styles and themes.

12. Floating Islands by @nu.jour

How crazy cool is these floating islands!? The detail in the artwork is phenomenal and the feel the environment creates is amazing.

13. August Cupcake by @serendipity.bujo

What a cute little cupcake to welcome the new month! Additionally, this super minimal script lettering is gorgeous! I love a good minimalistic script font.

14. Watercolor Roses

You may have seen this watercolor floral theme or spread on my site before. Floral themes are very common and work with every month. Additionally, watercolor is very common and versatile. So, you can’t go wrong with a watercolor and/or floral hello August bullet journal spread.

15. Minimal Hello August by @kareninks

While the more artistic spreads are fun to look at, they aren’t for everyone. Here is a great example of a super minimal hello August bullet journal spread.

16. Hello August Lighthouse by @rox.the.planoholic

Here is a very summery spread! I love this nautical and lighthouse hello page. Additionally, I love the style that the waves are made of; it is very geometric!

17. Green Tree by @plansbythildra

How cute are these little patterned trees? I love the fun font and patterns used.

18. Hello August Watercolor Crystals & Gems

The crystal hello layouts I created for Sam’s custom notebook are some of my favorite layouts I’ve created. So, of course, I am going to include the August one here!

19. Hello August Koala by @vk_bulletjournal

I cannot get over how cute this little koala is next to this eucalyptus branch! Such a gentle, calm, and cute hell August layout!

20. 90’s August Vibes by @bujo.becca

90’s style is coming back into style and I couldn’t be more excited! I love these bright pastel shades mixed with geometric shapes. This layout is perfect.

21. Starry Night by @ginger.bullet.journal

I tend to stay away from darker layouts light this one myself; however, I absolutely love them! White on black can be done so beautifully and this layout is a perfect example. Also, you cannot go wrong with a nighttime sky theme any month of the year!

22. August Sunflowers by @bujoandcookies

You can’t go wrong with a bright and happy sunflower layout any summer month and August is no exception!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this round-up. What is your favorite August bullet journal theme?

Green Houseplant August Bullet Journal Plan-With-Me


It’s a new month which means it is time for a new plan-with-me. This month’s spread is green and houseplant themed. Interested in learning more? Then, keep on reading!

The Green Houseplant Theme Process

For August, I decided to use green as my main theme. However, I did not want to use acrylic paint again. So, I browsed my ink collection thinking that I could use mosaic stamps. This idea was another flop as I don’t have a green ink like I thought I did. I knew I wanted to use houseplant washi tape and needed some more, so, about halfway through July, I ordered some houseplant tape through Amazon AND Etsy hoping that one of them would come in time though neither had tracking information.

I finally settled on using watercolor and began mixing a green color that I felt would match the tapes I had ordered. I painted up the pages well in advance but the washi tape was not coming in time. The first week and a half of August I did not have completed layouts, I took pictures before the washi tape came in, then you can view the layouts once I completed them with the washi tape. You can also check this out in the video flip-through embedded above.

The Layout Descriptions

Per usual, my August spread includes a hello page and then weekly planning pages. First, the hello page is painted almost entirely in green watercolor paint. There is a strip across the upper-middle of the page that is not painted over. This unpainted section is bordered with houseplant washi tape. Finally, in a minimal black script, “August” is across the center.

Next, the weekly layouts follow a general design. I painted the space of this layout in the same green watercolor as the hello page. Then on the bottom edge of the page is more green houseplant washi tape. Each page features a different washi tape. Next, I outlined the seven columns found in the center of the two pages in black ink.

Additionally, the header is in a black minimal script font on the left page. Then, on the right page is the week number, again, in black. Lastly, the letter and number indicating the day and date are in black at the top of the day’s column.

August 2017 Bullet Journal Spread | Classic Style

This month’ bullet journal spread is entirely different from the creative artsy look of July’s spread. For August, I have decided to keep it classic and clean looking. I am not straying from color or creativity, I am just keeping it incredibly simple and functional. With this being the first month in the new apartment in North Carolina, and with work and school starting, the layouts have changed. Let’s check it out!

Classic Calendar Spread

This month there is no obvious theme like last month. I have kept it clean. Usually, I would write the dates in small lettering in the corner of the box. However this time I wrote the dates largely in a very light brown tone. I did this so that I can write over and still be legible. I have also chosen to highlight the top bar in the color or a major event, holiday, or date (if there is one).

Customizable Hand-Drawn Bullet Journals

As you can see, I have gone back to my classic light green and brown lettering and styling. However, I have flipped the titling and quote on its side. This month’s quotes is, “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be WONDERFUL.” This quote speaks to my perfectionism for sure! Otherwise, the month layout or calendar spread has not been drastically altered.

Mind Dump & Finances Pages

Mind Dump

This month I have opened a new mind dump page. This page is not pictured because of the secret that lay on the page. ? Keep checking my website and social media to find out what I am hiding!

Finances | Bills + Textbooks

I dedicated the next page to my August finances. The top half of the page lists my bills for the month and how much I own (If I know it); when it is due; then I have checked it off the list if it has been paid (none have yet). This is to help remind me of my bills and to show myself an overview of them all.

bullet journal, bills, bill tracking, finances, subscriptions, debt, saving

The bottom half of the page lists my textbooks and their ISBN, then how much I paid for it (if I’ve bought it), the quality of the book, and finally the date purchased. I have a more comprehensive chart of this in excel, but it is nice to have a basic list in my bullet journal with my other large expenses. Again, so that I can view it all at once. This page is not aesthetically pleasing because I just wanted a rough list, I did not want to spend too much time on it.

Weekly Layout

I have kept each week the same for the month of August. Similar to the theme, I kept the style classic. This month, the weekly layout includes (from the top down) a daily to-do section, daily homework and due dates section, and daily appointments/meetings/events section.

Below these daily boxes are two weekly boxes. On the left page is a weekly to-do box. I included this because I generally have things that I need to do at some point in the week, but the day I do it does not matter. This box might also include things such as a list of errands. On the right page is my shopping or grocery list.

Again, the design of the weekly spread is classic and simple. I have stayed similar to the calendar spread by labeling everything in a light brown behind the box so that other things can be written over it and still be visible. I changed up the font and location each week. Writing the labeling lightly behind saves space, and that’s why I chose to give it a shot. Not entirely sure how I feel about it, but can’t hurt to try it out right? Similar to the calendar spread, I have also turned the title on its side and stuck it in the far-left upper corner.
