Bujo 101: 5 Weekly Spread Layouts

Hi dear friends, it’s me again: Aly from @bujo_aly! For those of you who are new, I am the artist and Bullet-Journal-enthusiast behind my Instagram-profile.

 

Welcome to the third part of the Bujo 101 series where I’d like to show you some classic layouts for your weekly spreads. With the two previous spread-ideas you should have a good basis for your monthly set-up in your bullet journal. If you missed the other blog-posts, make sure to check them out as well!

Of course, the spreads as I have designed them aren’t an absolute obligation, but perhaps an inspiration! You can make any spread as simple or detailed as you would like.

So let’s begin…

Materials

Surely, you can use any material for your Bullet Journal that you like and feel comfortable with. For me, some colored brush-pens, a black hard-tip brush-pen and black fineliners work the best. You can also sketch out your design with a pencil before you begin and on occasion you may also need scissors and glue.

Here are some suggestions from Maisie Lane Co.:

Of course, the one item you will need the most is a journal! The one that I’m currently using is from Maisie Lane Co. and it is the A5 Forager Green Journal. They have a large selection of beautiful notebooks, in case you want your own personalized journal by them, check out her web-shop and don’t forget to use my code ALY15 to save 15% on your entire purchase.

 

 

Weekly Spread 1 / Two-Page Dark Academia Weekly Spread

The first two page spread that I’d like to show you is a vertical oriented spread with horizontal sectioning. You can design the sections as closed boxes like on the left page or leave them open like on the right side. For an exact organization of your tasks, you can split the daily boxes again in events and tasks. You can also use other or more subdivisions like “top 3-tasks” or “daily to-do-list”.

Weekly Spread 2 / Two-Page Sunny Weekly Spread

I did my best integrating diverse fonts for the headers and different borders like in this vertical layout. The sections may seem narrow, but they offer a lot of space for bullet point notes. There is also plenty of space for notes that don’t have a specific date or for tasks you don’t want to forget. A subdivision in events and tasks is also possible here. With a bit of space on the lower side, a habit-tracker could be positioned under the daily boxes, like that you can keep track of your routine.

Weekly Spread 3 / Two-Page Sage Green Weekly Spread

 

 Another one-page spread would be this layout with the small vertical rectangles. They offer spaces for smaller notes and tasks, like in the spread that I mentioned above. Surely you can design the boxes larger so you will have more space for tasks or you do it as I did with little decorative boxes, where you could doodle cute little things (like peaches) or you can integrate a weekly routines tracker or you have a box for some events of the week. The opportunities are endless!

 

 Weekly Spread 4 / Single Page Lavender Weekly Spread

Now we come to the one-paged weekly spreads, that are very suitable for less busy weeks or for small handwriting…hehe. This spread is perfect for vacation weeks, when you don’t have a lot to do or during a phase of fewer work and you only must write down some notes. You can design two weeks on this double-sided spread or write a beautiful quote like I did. The vertical subdivision of each daily in “events” and “tasks” is definitely possible here, too!

 

Weekly Spread 5 / Single Page Peach Weekly Spread

Another one-page spread would be this layout with the small vertical rectangles. They offer spaces for smaller notes and tasks, like in the spread that I mentioned above. Surely you can design the boxes larger so you will have more space for tasks or you do it as I did with little decorative boxes, where you could doodle cute little things (like peaches) or you can integrate a weekly routines tracker or you have a box for some events of the week. The opportunities are endless!

I hope you enjoyed this month’s blogpost and now are motivated to create some new beautiful weekly-spreads. If that’s the case, we would love to see your re-creations on Instagram and don’t forget to tag us @maisielaneco and @bujo_aly and use the hashtag #bujo101!
