Are you always looking for the right pen for journaling? Does it seem like your pens and journals never stay in the same spot and you’re always searching for one or the other? We’ve got an easy DIY Journal Kit to make it easy to keep your supplies tidy and at-the-ready when inspiration strikes. 

    Get yourself a container

    Having the right bin to corral all your supplies makes journaling or decorating your planner so much easier. We like the Larque Plastic Bins, the perfect size for stashing all your pens, markers, and journals.

    Choose your journal or planner

    Our favorite go-to products are the Hardcover Lined Journal, the Undated Planner and the Hardcover Dotted Journal. They're all excellent for list making & have paper that stands up to different kinds of pens & markers. If you need a smaller notebook then the Lined or Dotted Journal is just for you. The Undated Planner gives you some extra room & pre-printed information to help set-up your planning pages quickly. Overall, you want ample room for doodles, decorations, and special flourishes and room to make it your very own.

    Gather your pens & markers

    Colored pens, markers, & highlighters are a must for journaling. They let you fully express your creative side and add that extra whimsy and delight to your pages. If you’re jazzing up your planner or calendar, colored pens & soft-colored highlighters let you code tasks, classes, or meeting notes by color for easy reference.

    Stash some fun stickers & tapes

    Stickers are so fun to collect and a quick & easy way to embellish your journal pages. Start gathering your favorites and add them to your kit. Look for stickers that help with setting up calendars, weekly spreads or important dates & holidays. Don't forget washi tape to help you create borders & dividers.

    Collect a pair of scissors.

    Having a pair of scissors in your journaling bin lets you easily cut snippets from magazines of interesting images, motivational words, or cool colors to embellish your journal. When inspiration strikes, you want to be ready!
