6 Christmas Spreads for your Bullet Journal (+ video)

I love when December comes because apart from my normal monthly spreads I get to play around and create my Christmas spreads as well in my bullet journal. Today I'm going to show you the 6 spreads I've created for Xmas. 

Make sure to scroll down and watch the video as well, where I show you step-by-step how I created each one.

30 Christmas Spread Ideas for your Bullet Journal

With Christmas just around the corner there are a million and one things that you need to organise and prepare. One of them being your bullet journal set up for December and all the Xmas spreads you might want to include in it. 

I've been looking around the Internet for more inspiration and I thought I'll share with you some really nice spreads I've found by some very talented fellow bullet journalists. I've put them in categories, so that it's easier for you to find what you're looking for.

So, grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and let's get inspired.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Wishing to all of you Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year! May 2017 bring you closer to your goals! - www.christina77star.co.uk
And so we end another year! This has been an incredible year for me, both personally and professionally. It was the year that I decided to start blogging again, but also the year that I discovered bullet journaling, which has changed my life in so many ways! It continues to blow my mind that so many of you follow along my journey and I’m so very grateful for each and every one of you. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to be creative again and I hope you find this blog to be a place that inspires you to create as well!

I’m taking a little break to enjoy some time with my family and I hope you will be doing the same. I’ll be back January 6th with a ton of new and exciting posts (and videos) on bullet journaling, hand lettering, and blogging. 2017 looks incredibly promising with new projects, posts and so much more that I can’t wait to tell you about!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!

XOXO,

P.S: During January I'm planning a big giveaway to show my appreciation to all of you, so make sure you keep an eye on that! ;)

Collaboration: Christmas Card Free Printable

Free Christmas Cards Printable! - www.christina77star.co.uk

For today's post I've collaborated again with the lovely Olivia from RandomOlive to create something extra special for you. After seeing how many people enjoyed our last collaboration, with the Free Hand Lettering Practice Guide for your bullet journal, I decided to reach out to her and ask her to create a Free Christmas Card printable for all of you!

For me the most important part of giving or receiving is the card. It's what's written inside the card that matters most. Nowadays, people find it easy to go and buy expensive gifts, but they struggle to open up their heart and put it on paper. So this year, take some more time when you write your Xmas card, and make sure your message is thoughtful and meaningful for the person you're giving it to.

The card is super easy to make. All you'll need is some card paper (light coloured so that the message shows properly), pencil, ruler and a printer. The cards will print best on A4 size paper and they come in two sizes - A4 and 7.2x10.5cm. If you choose the smaller size, you should cut them out where it's shown on the corners like I have below. If you want a bigger card and you can go for the A4 size. You can always snip them down to the size you want, to fit your envelope.

Then all you have to do is to fold them in half, and there you have it!

Christmas Gift Tags - Free Printable

The holiday season is already here and I can't believe it's only three weeks till Christmas! I'm so excited! This is the time that I start buying the Christmas presents for all my family and friends, and I'm usually running in and out of shops with a big smile on my face or happily searching online for the perfect presents for each one. This year I've decided to make it a bit more personal with some gift tags that I've made myself. And in the Christmas spirit of giving, I'd like to share them with you too! :)

They're so easy to make and cute as a pie! All you'll need is a pair of scissors, some ribbon or twine, and a hole puncher.

Cut the tags with the scissors, and then with a hole puncher make a circle cut where it's marked. You can leave the black line around the tag or cut through it - it's totally up to you.

You can also personalize your tags, by adding some coloured paper at the back of them that matches with the colour of your ribbon. That will make them extra festive!

Let me know in the comments below if you liked the gift tags. You can also share pictures of your presents as well! Don't forget, the most important part is the message you'll write at the back of the tag to the people you love. ;)




Instagram Challenge #doodlewithusindecember

#doodlewithusindecember Instagram Challenge with the theme 'Christmas Countdown'

November is almost finished and I'm excited to announce our Instagram Challenge for the month of December! It's the #doodlewithusindecember Instagram Challenge created by me and Alexandra (from @alexandra_plans).
The theme for December's prompts is ''Countdown to Christmas" 🎄 and for that reason it's going to be only 25 prompts. We believe that this will make it easier to catch up with the challenge during the busy holiday season!

Because of the nature of the theme, this month we are not doing the big comprehensive picture. Instead, we are going back to the original design with 25 squares, a grid of 5x5 boxes, one per prompt. So, in the end you'll have 25 doodles that will lead you to Xmas day! Yay!

If you want to join us then:

  • Follow me (Christina) @christina77star and Alexandra @alexandra_plans over on Instagram.
  • Download the prompts below.
  • Draw something according to the day's prompt, take a photo of it, and share it with us on Instagram. 
  • Don't forget to add the hashtag #doodlewithusindecember and spread the word.
  • Everyone is welcome!

We're excited to see what you'll share!
