May 2017 Setup

May Setup by Sam Granger

This month’s setup is slightly different to what I have been doing the last few months. While I have a regular monthly log style on the left page, I decided to extend it across the right page. I used the week separator lines to do this, as you can see in the photo below.

May Setup by Sam Granger

So, on the left page, I will put appointments and reminders, as usual. The right side is for bills and overflow. At the top on the right, I have a space for notes and tasks that are currently dateless.

I’m not sure I particularly like how it’s turned out, and later I did go over the week separators and days of the week in a pale apricot marker to add some variety.

My initial conception of this setup was to use the right side as a free flow area, with dateless tasks I know I need to get done, as well as bills. But it worked out that I put all the bills on the date lines, so I now feel like I have to be more structured that originally planned. Oh well, we’ll see how it goes!

Below, you will find the video of how it all came together. 🙂 xx

Happy New Year (& Here’s a Bunch of Videos)

January 2017 Setup by Sam Granger

Happy New Year! I hope that you had a wonderful holiday season. I spent Christmas with family and New Year’s Eve with new friends and my guy.

It hasn’t been all play, though. I’ve been busy making videos and putting them on my channel and not posting about them here. Oops! It’s been a busy time so I decided to wait and share them all together.

The first is my weekly spread from 19-25 December. I tried some different styling for my standard weekly and dailies.

The second video was an experimental live stream, sharing my Erin Condren dot grid notebook. I had a lot of fun doing this and definitely want to live stream again soon, I just need to work out making sure everything is better quality.

The third video is my January 2017 setup. I love this setup so much. I’ve got a bit back to basics with this.

My last video is a part of a collab with Ashton and Leslie all about setting up goals in our bullet journals. This was a really fun way to get more involved in the bullet journal community and I hope to do more collabs in the future! (Let me know if you’re interested.) Here’s my video:

Here’s Ashton’s video:

And here is Leslie’s video:

Okay, so now that you have 50 billion videos to watch, I’m going to leave you to it. I’ll be back soon with a new post! xx

December Setup

December Setup by Sam Granger

It’s that time again! The monthly setup is one of my favourites things to do. I must say, however, that I keep complicating things my adding elements to the setup that takes time. Will I ever learn?? Haha, probably not – it’s too much fun. Watch the video below. And, don’t forget, you can check out all the resources I use here.

November Setup

November Setup by Sam Granger

It’s that time again! Setting up for a new month on my bujo is one of my favourite things to do. That being said, sometimes it doesn’t always go to plan. This time, I had THREE attempts. You can learn more about that in the video. Point is, sometimes things don’t go to plan and that’s ok. I maybe should have tried to make it work, but I also had filming issues and wanted to have a monthly setup video for you guys, since I know you love ’em so much. Anyway, I got there in the end. Phew!

Check this post for information on what I use to bujo.

October Setup

October Setup by Sam Granger

It’s that time of the month again, where I film my setup and share it with you all. I’m really looking forward to October because I have some nice personal events to looks forward to and it will be Halloween! For my October spread, I let my holiday joy let rip and tried to go for a spooky look. Watch the video below.

September Review Setup & September 1-4

Sep Review Setup and Sep 1-4 by Sam Granger

Today’s video is all about setting up my September review page and the first week of September. I usually do my review page setup along with the monthly setup, but I completely forgot to do it for September! It’s a little late, but at least you’ll get to see it. :p I also wanted to do a spread for September 1-4, so I included that in this video, too.

I am so liking the simplicity of the weekly spread. It’s mostly black pen and there is something to soothing about just doing a whole spread in one colour.  Clarissa on IG is one of my favourites for that kind of thing.
