Have you seen the Bullet Journal dutch doors? You probably have, it feels like it’s getting really popular. The dutch door is a way to get more space within a spread. You simply cut out sections of your pages and create door-like layouts.
You can do the dutch door as a way to add some prettiness to your spread, you can do it to add functionality – or you do a mix of both.
Make sure you scroll down to the very last one in this post. I haven’t yet seen anyone else do what Sarah has done in that layout.
If you like what you see make sure to follow them on Instagram and leave them a comment. Let’s share some love <3 By clicking on any of the photos their Instagram will open up in a new tab.
Dutch Doors for Habit Trackers
This is a clever way to keep all monthly habit trackers collected in one spot. I love it!
Dutch Doors for Weeklies
I really like the idea of having all the weekdays in the dutch door system. Here @bysundaymornings uses the “front page” for the to-do’s of the week and on the “back page” for the weekly overview.
This layout by the.petite.planner also keeps all the weekdays in the dutch door system and add additional information on the “front” and “back” pages of the layout. And whereas @bysundaymornings cut the dutch door vertically, @the.petite.planner cut her horizontally.
@lovelyheys has such a pretty weekly layout with the dutch door system.
This dutch door is so well executed. Liddy has drawn these beautiful flowers on the front and back page of the layout. Then she draws parts of the flowers on the dutch door pages as well, making it seamless when flipping through the dutch door pages. You really should check out her Instagram-account for more photos on this (and her other) layout.
I just love the colors and the minimalist, but still pretty feel of this layout by Jordan.
Do you see how Kayla Ashley uses two dutch doors in the same layout? Love it!
This one differs a bit from the others as the dutch door contains the weekly overview instead of the weekdays.
Pretty Dutch Doors
I just love how Sarah-Jane uses these pretty flowers for her dutch door.
Another pretty dutch door divider <3
Serena has created some pretty dutch door dividers in her Bullet Journal. I couldn’t pick just one, so these two next ones are from her.
@elas_bullet_journey uses a quote and pretty illustration for her dutch door.
If you’ve followed me for some time you know I’m a huge fan of Annie’s. When I saw this dutch door I just knew I had to include it in this list!
I just absolutely love the combination of the black lines and the splash of red color.
A fellow Swede has made this lovely dutch door. Hm, maybe “lovely” isn’t the right word to use when there’s a dragon in the illustration haha but with those flowers it’s just so darn pretty :)
Carling created this pretty flowery dutch door in her weekly.
And last, but definitely not least, this amazing cut out dutch door from Sarah. I haven’t seen anyone else do something like this, where they cut like this in their Bullet Journal.
I hope you found these dutch doors inspirational, I know I did! If you’ve done a dutch door in your Bullet Journal don’t be shy to share a link in the comments!
