It’s Char here from the Archer & Olive 2022 Design Team. I am such a huge fan of seasonal bucket lists, especially in the winter when there’s so much holiday stuff to do! Today I’m going to show you how to set up a super cute winter bucket list for your bullet journal, but you can change out the doodles and fonts to adapt to any other season.
Below is a rundown of some of the products I used to create this spread. If you would like to purchase any of these products, remember to use the code CHAR10 at checkout to save yourself some money!
- A5 Neapolitan Time for Tea Dot Grid Notebook - This journal has 3 different types of paper which is perfect for the Kraft paper cutout I did for this spread.
- You can also do this spread on one of the Dot Grid Notepads, or on any of the other Dot Grid Journals if you only want to use one type of paper.
- Calliographs - I used blues, and greys to make the snowflakes on this spread pop.
- Fineliners: Pentel Energel 0.7mm and Sakura Pigma Micron 0.05mm

Setting up the Spread
First, start out with your title. I added some icicles on my title to make it feel even more wintery and festive.
Next, I created a little flip through cut out section using Kraft paper so that I can fit a ton of list items in a small area. I cut out two rectangles, folded them in half, laid them on top of each other and glued them down using a glue roller.
Once you’ve gotten the structure of your spread down, decorate with whatever makes you happy! I went with some snowflake doodles to keep it festive.
I’ve created a printable that includes the master list of all of the items listed above. See how many you can get through this winter!
Enjoy making this spread your own with doodles, drawings, and lettering.
