Botanical Bujo

Hello, friends. It's Jennie and I'm so happy to share with you another week in my memory a day journal/planner/bujo. I'm using a blank dot grid notebook for this project and setting the pages up in a bujo or DIY planner format. This allows me to experiment and have fun with different layouts while getting creative and have a lot of fun at the same time. I am recording one memory from each day and not stressing if a skip a day, this is meant to be inspiring and really fun.
I don't worry if I forget to document a day or two. My regular day-to-day planner allows me to remember the details of the day and I find it's easy to fill in the missing days thanks to the planner.
I start by selecting a stamp set. This time, it had to be the Botanical Borders stamp set. I'd used it once before and wow! It is just the most versatile set and works so well in a variety of planners.
After I selected Botanical Borders, I decided that I wanted to stamp it along the bottom of each page to set the scene of a field of flowers or a flower-lined sidewalk. I loved the idea of creating vertical columns to add my journaling and memories to.
Now, it's time to give those blooms some color. Since it's still the middle of spring, I wanted to stick with the softest of pastels. I'm not a master at coloring, so I didn't worry about that! [I added the color and had a lot of fun, remembering how it was to color in coloring books as a child.] In the end, I'm not bothered by my lack of expertise, I simply see the vision I had for this layout on paper.
I'm so inspired by how well the Ink Blot Shop stamps work in my planners, both this bujo/DIY planner and my vertical planner. They are the perfect, whimsical touch that makes my days a little more inspired. Have you stamped in your planners? If you haven't you should try it! Follow Ink Blot Shop and see what stamp sets you see that can inspire you in your planner!
