30+ Must-See May Cover Page Ideas!

Updated: May 1, 2023

There is lots to love about May - summer is officially underway, VACATIONS, and for the Bullet Journal community - you can add creative quotes to your monthly covers :D

"May you always see all the beautiful little things" or "May all your dreams come true" come to mind.

Let's kick this off with a Summer Theme!

Summer Theme

From cool, refreshing fruits to sultry summer nights, there's a lot of inspiration to seek from summer.
