SIS! Your girl is getting on it this month and finally making a slow yet progressive presence. Now that I've learned the ins and out of being a "content creator," I can feel more like me and create more. I was pretty bummed about this but it turned out to be the perfect time to make a change. I ran out of space in my Archer and Olive notebook, so I made a huge switch!
I'm now using a Passion Planner journal and it is so much bigger than my A5 notebook. My learning lesson this month was using my large (8.5 x 11.25 in) notebook but still stay true to my minimal style of bullet journaling.
Passion Planner ELITE dotted Journal (Large)
Sakura Pigma Micron pens (Tips: 2, 08, 05, 01, and 005)
DecoColor Liquid gold pain marker (Extra Fine)
Dual Tip Brush Pens (Brown: 047)

This post will be just as short as my set up. It was quite simple because I'll be traveling this month and I'll be on the road. My set up in my Passion Planner focused on an all in one monthly spread. #bujobaetip Colors and symbols are your best friend when you want to organize so many things but keep your bujo minimal and clean.
YAS! A traveler's notebook! I've always wanted to start one but never had a reason to....and with COVID-19, major trips have been off the table. However, should have done a traveler's notebook sooner!...So I could have a reason to buy more cute mini notebooks! Hehe
If you have an adorable collection of unused notebooks laying around, this is the perfect way to use them! The instructions are in my September video but here's a quick how to list:
3-4 Notebooks (I used Field Notes and Rifle Paper pocket journals)
Cardstock 110 to 120 lb
Tie yourself elastic (I bought black hair ties from Cindy's collection)
Silhouette Portrait 3 (You can also hand cut and use a hole punch)
MAKE A TRAVELER'S NOTEBOOK
MAKING A COVER: Measure the length and width of the notebook. Measure the height of the stack of notebooks you'll be using. That will be your spine. Plug and chug the numbers and it will equal your total width and height of your cover. Download these links for silhouette files if you're using a Field Notes or Rifle Paper Pocket Journal
MAKING YOUR BINDING: Get 1 rubber band and create a loop and tie it. String it through the center hole and the knot you made will be a stopper. For the spine get 2 rubber bands and string it through the holes on the top and bottom. Make a knot on the outer top of the spine.
ADD THE NOTEBOOKS: Open your notebooks to half way and slide them into the rubber bands.
