Sunshine Yellow July Bullet Journal Plan-with-Me

It is officially summer, and that means bright, happy colors and sunshine activities. My bullet journal is no different! Each summer I like to use a yellow theme to celebrate the warm sunny weather. I decided that this year, July would be the month I used yellow. Keep reading to see how I created my sunshine yellow July 2019 bullet journal!

The Sunshine Yellow Theme Process

This month’s yellow theme is one I picked out back in April. However, I was not too sure how to execute the yellow theme. Additionally, I knew that I wanted to incorporate my sunshine washi tape since my yellow summer layouts are the reason I created this tape.

I got busy and completely forgot what I was doing for July until I found my notes. In my notes, I had a few keywords and as I read them, I was inspired. I knew that I wanted most of the layout to be yellow. Yellow is a color that makes me super happy because of it’s bright summer-y feel. So, I decided to create a layout similar to my July theme, except I would create a border on one of the pages with my tape. I do enjoy how it turned out!

The Layout Descriptions

Per usual, my July spread includes a hello page and then weeklies. First, let’s start by talking about the hello page. For July, the hello page is painted almost entirely in a bright golden yellow color. Then in the seam of the page, I have added a stripe of sunshine washi tape. Finally, in a minimal gold script, I have “July” written across the center.

Next, let’s discuss my weekly layouts. I generally follow a general design. I painted the space of this layout in the same yellow paint as the hello page. Then on the left page edge, I used the sunshine washi tape. Next, I outlined the seven columns found in the center of the two pages in gold ink.

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