About This Class


In this class I want to show how to design and create a digital planner or bullet journal.  I’ll cover how I use the app Procreate to plan and draw my planner template, and how I create buttons that link to various sections in my planner.  

I'll show you how to:

  • plan out the sections and layout of your planner
  • use a grid system to create accurate measurements
  • create buttons in your planner that will link to the sections you choose
  • use a downloaded font to add text to your planner

All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus.  I'll give you my planner to download, and some brushes that will make designing your planner easier.  I’ll be using the Apple pencil and the app Procreate, but there are many other programs you could use to design your planner.  I like to use the app Goodnotes to store my planner, but there are other planner apps like Notability that you could use as well. As long as the program works with PDF files, you can use it with this process.  If you prefer to work on paper though, you could print out your planner pages and add them to a binder.  

You can download the planner and brushes I use in the course here.

Here is my Pinterest board for bullet journal inspiration.

You can download my new customizable mudcloth inspired planner here.
