As we shared in a previous post, How to Use Bullet Journaling in Your Quilter’s Planner, the Bullet Journal method (aka BuJo), first developed by Ryder Carrol, was created as a quick, easy, no-frills way to stay organized. Purists limit their Bullet Journals to the original concept: notebook, pen, symbols, and entries.
Naturally, some aren’t content with a “plain” BuJo – they modify their Bullet Journals and take them to the next level. These creative souls turn their BuJos into works of art by incorporating stunning lettering, drawings and more. Such work in a BuJo is often done with pens, colored pencils, watercolors, or washi tape.
This post will share some clever ways you can take your BuJo to the next level. A picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes, so we’ve decided to share some photos of fabulous and fun BuJo pages and spreads. (Images shared with each artist’s permission)
Pages or spreads that track something over a certain period of time are very popular in the world of embellished BuJos. Here are some great examples of that. The artists below tracked mood, sleep, bodily transformation, savings and exercise/workouts in very stylistically different ways. We love the creativity and variety involved in their data collection!

Weekly & Monthly Spreads
You may not need to create weekly or monthly spreads in your Quilter’s Planner/BuJo, since they’re already in there, but we’re still sharing these excellent examples just so you get an idea about how traditional bullet journals work. We love the use of space, color, lettering, illustration, and organization!
