Happy Monday everyone!
I had a crazy busy day, so this post is going up later than usual.
This week, I decided to take a break from all the flowers and fun spring colors, and bring you guys a simplistic, minimalist layout.
Although the weekly spread that I created is quite basic and black and white, you can use it as a base for your spread and add anything you’d like.
I will try to keep this post short and simple, so let’s get started!

The first part of this week’s layout that I created was the banner. I started by writing out April 16th – 22nd, then boxed it in. After creating the initial box, I created the shadow box beneath it.
If you’re finding it hard to create this shadow box then just follow these simple steps:
- Create your initial box. For example, my smaller boxes are 3×3 in size.
- Starting at the top right corner of the box, move down by 1 row and draw a line extending to the right by 1 column.
- Then starting at the bottom left corner of the original box, you want to move right 1 column and draw a line extending down 1 row.
- Then take the end of these two new lines you’ve created and draw vertical and horizontal lines until they connect.
You should be able to follow these same directions to create the shadow box underneath the weekly title.
Then I added in my vertical lines. I put in 7 of these lines that are 5 rows tall, creating 6 on the left side of the page and 1 on the bottom right (for Sunday).
Then I wrote the names of each day of the week vertically next to it’s corresponding line. I then added in my 3×3 boxes, including the shadows, and I put the number of the day in the middle.
Lastly, I added in the vertical lines that separate the days. These lines are parallel with the tops of each 3×3 box and they all begin one space out from the box.
And that is really all there is to this week’s spread. Feel free to add in color or daily trackers. If you recreate this post, or any of my posts, make sure to post it on Instagram and tag me in it @9to5bulletjournal or use the hashtag #9to5bulletjournal so I can see your amazing work!
