Happy December, it’s time for a Holiday Bucket List Journal Layout!  Renee with @thediyday here to share a fun way to document your holiday bucket list in your journals and notebooks.  I just love experiencing all of the festivities that happen during the holidays I don’t want to forget to do any of them.  To help me out, I’ve come up with a holiday bucket list journal layout.  This layout contains 31 activities for my family and I to enjoy during the month of December.  Another fun part of the layout…the satisfaction of checking off a completed square!

Step One

First, for the header of my notebook layout, I lettered the words “Holiday Bucket List.” I achieved this look by blending two brush pens together. With the dark green brush pen (249) from the Tombow Dual Brush Pen Set, Holiday Edition, I colored right onto the Tombow XL Blending Palette. Then, with the cream colored brush pen (990), grabbed some green color off of the palette just by coloring on top of it, transferring the ink.

Step Two

Next, with the stencil and the fine tips of the dual brush pens, holiday set, I stenciled 31 squares.  As my family and I complete these events I will use a Tombow Black Drawing Pen to check them off.

Step Three

Then with the Tombow Mechanical Pencil, I wrote in the various events on my holiday bucket list right next to the squares.  Afterward, I went over the pencil markings with a Tombow MONO Drawing Pen (05).  I did the events in pencil first just so I could erase any mistakes I make.

Step Four

Last, if space allows, add some festive doodles. Christmas trees, candy canes, and snowflakes are my favorites.
