What is a Daily page?

Daily page

Daily page set-up:

Evon’s version (more detail below #6)
⦁ Top -Daily quote or scripture verse
⦁ Chosen daily washi tape divider
⦁ Date Banner and Weather doodles including Temperature
⦁ List of daily To Dos, activities, events, appointments, comments on the day, meals, tracking comments, business, etc.
⦁ Doodles, stamps, and stickers added at will for a splash of color and easy, fun creativity.


 Page Set-up Comparison:

1. Minimalist – Ryder Carroll – No decoration – Functional use only (Analog system that all other bullet journal systems have evolved from) Notice that Ryder’s daily pages consist of only To Do’s, Events, Appointments, etc. Ryder lists 4 days per page in his bullet journal. You can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/user/bulletjournal

2. Semi-minimalist – Kara Benz (Boho Berry) -few doodles. handwriting practice, daily timeline, no washi tape or stickers. Kara uses Ryder’s bullet checklist. You can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcKyr0v7_1A

3. Creative bullet journal daily -Gretchen Hope -Washi tape, stickers, tip-ins, journal prompts, project life cards with quotes, task lists, smashbook add ins -prompt lists, Cute and scrapbooky, doodles, stamps, quad planner, and journaling space on daily. Gretchen uses Ryder’s bullet checklist. You can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDttRueKfFU

4. Creative bullet journal dailies – ME!! 🙂 ~Evon Robinson -I find this works well for me right now. I love putting quotes at the top (as a page heading); then separate the quote from the rest of my daily with a strip of washi tape; next I place my date banner doodle to the left and my weather doodles and daily temperatures to the right. Next in the daily layout, I list my daily To Dos, appointments, events, BJC postings, planning, etc, ending with my BJC daily member tracking. You can view my bullet journal daily log in the posted photos below… 🙂 <3

It’s an amazing tool to be sure! And in Your hands…it’s even more powerful! So crack open a bullet journal today and step into the amazing world so many are experiencing and enjoying as their GO TO friend!

    What lovely creative pages! I think I would feel very happy with a to-do list if it looked like that every day 🙂 Do you write them the night before or when you wake up? And do you add to it throughout the day making it more like a diary?

    They look great anyway, thanks for giving me some good ideas!

      Hello Louise!
      Thank you for your kind comments…means a great deal to me. 🙂 My pleasure!!

      I do my daily page set up the night before with a date banner of sorts, weather doodles with High/low temps, and space for a quote above, if I get to it. Next I usually fill in my to dos as I finish them, usually because I tend to over-schedule myself which would result in migrating way too much to the next day. Bullet journaling is so versatile you can make it however you want, and if something’s not working you can change it the next day or week or month into whatever works for you. That’s what’s so amazing about it. It’s a planner, journal, scrapbook, art journal, etc…all rolled into one!!

      You are welcome to join my FB group, Barefoot Journaling Chronicles, if you’d like more “treasures”. And please check back often, I have 32 posts that will be added here soon, that are already on our FB page as well.

      I hope you will visit often. 🙂

    I enjoyed looking at your colorful and fun daily pages! What a great idea… some day you’ll have a WONDERFUL time looking back at your lifetime of adventures that you’d so prettily documented!
    What I’ve been considering doing is a “Good Things” or “Thanksgiving” daily journal, where I write down 3-5 good things that happened or things that I’m thankful for (prayers answered, special events etc) on that day. It would be a way to be reminded daily to look for the many blessings in my life, and praise the God who showers them on me! I like your colorful style – perhaps I can merge the two ideas!

      Hello Marlaine, Awww…thank you so much for your kind comments. Means a great deal to me. 🙂 I hope my children will treasure them too one day and maybe learn something of value through my life scribbles.

      I also have monthly gratitude pages I do in what we call a collection or spread. And in addition I also have a prayer list with answers to prayer, and Bible promises that stand out to me too. These are all listed as monthly spreads so I can keep track of them each month.

      My blog is all about teaching bullet journaling along with Bible journaling, card and album creation, and much much more. We even have hand lettering lessons and a quarterly short story writing contest in my FB group, Barefoot Journaling Chronicles. I invite you to come join us! 🙂 The bullet journal is so adaptable, you can make it whatever you want it to be. I have 32 more posts I will be adding to my site that now exist on my FB group page.

      Thank you so much for reviewing my site..and please do come again and/or join my FB group, you’d be most welcome.
