Mood and Habit Tracker

These mood and habit trackers would work well for the New Year because of the gold star theme.

Pink and Red Roses

I could be wrong, but this design looks like stencils were used to create the rose designs.

Stencils are a great tool for adding designs to your bullet journal. Another thing I like about this spread is the handwriting. It’s really gorgeous.
