February Bujo Setup - Neutral Vintage Letter Theme (Free Printable!)
HAY, how art you? After a month of using a bright and fresh colour palette, I am back to using my favourite neutral and brown tones for February. Since it’s the month of Valentine’s Day, I went with a “vintage letters” theme with elements like stamps, post cards, wax seals and envelopes. I also created a free journaling printable set for this theme, and you can find the download link at the end of this article. Without further ado, let’s check out my February bujo setup!

February Bujo Setup Cover Page
The February cover page features a kraft paper envelope tied with a cream coloured string and secured with a mini wax seal. It is simple and sets the theme immediately. I kept the page simple by adding the word February using round washi dot stickers. To finish off, I lettered the phrase “it’s not all bad”, which is the same phrase on the oval wax seal on the left side of the spread.
To add more textures to the spread, I tied several decorative papers and a canvas fabric together and pasted them on the left, topping them all with a black wax seal. Check out this video to watch the making of these wax seals! I also added some gold glitter stars around the spread for some extra shine. Lastly, I pasted a textured paper, and marked this section for setting my monthly intentions.
February Bujo Setup Weekly Spread 1
For the first weekly spread, I drew six boxes for the daily sections. To decorate the side panels, I used decorative papers, vellum paper, stamps, and stickers. You can find the mini envelope template in my free printable set (link at the end of this article).

The second weekly spread features seven squares for each day of the week. To fill up the remaining spaces, I created small collages using postal elements to match the theme.

The third weekly spread uses a vertical layout. It was so much fun putting together the collages to decorate the top section of the spread!
February Bujo Setup Weekly Spread 4
And finally, here is the fourth and last weekly spread for this theme. I pasted a bow made from the same cream coloured string as the one on the cover page. It makes the collage more interesting and dimensional!
