2. Amanda Rach Lee

Personal History

Amanda, based in Toronto, Canada, started a YouTube channel back in 2012. [Go watch her first video, it is the cutest].

But this was not the start of her bullet journal career. In fact at this time Amanda was sharing fashion and beauty videos.

It was not until 2017 that Amanda shared her first bullet journal setup video on her channel. Needless to say is was massively popular.


Amanda has become one of the most influential bullet journal celebrities in her bullet journal career.

She grew in popularity through her YouTube channel and Social Media platforms making the idea of adding decoration and creating art in our planners accessible for all to try.

People started to copy her monthly themes. She shared those recreations and more people tried them.

Now she has gone on to sell her own branded pre-made art bullet journals, and accessories too. Her products often sell out not long after launch.

3. Boho Berry

Personal History

Kara is for sure one of the famous bullet journalers. In recent years, she has taken a step back, and her website is still down, but from what I have been able to discover this is her personal information:

She is from the states, currently based in Fort Worth, Texas!

She started her bullet journaling YouTube channel in 2015, so was one of the early Bujo Masters.

One of her early videos is her expressing her love for the bullet journal community and she has been a big influence in shaping it.

Her style of bullet journal is less artistic and more creative in the layouts and spreads department.


Kara started a YouTube account first and then blog and went onto grow her following to hundreds of thousands.

With all that support she was a thriving bullet journal influencer.

In recent times, she has stated that due to difficulties in her personal life she is taking a step back from the limelight.

All I can say is that I wish Kara all the best.

4. Plans that Blossom

Personal History

From what I can find out Nicole from Plans that Blossom doesn’t have a personal blog with an about page, and I am so sorry to say that I have not been following her from the beginning, so I am limited with what I know about Nicole [So sorry Nicole]

What I can see is that she is based in New Jersey and she is best know as an illustrator and graphic designer.

She is also a mum which I think really helps her be relatable to a whole bunch of busy moms who want to incorporate bullet journaling in their life.


She actually works as a product designer for children’s craft kits on licenses such as Disney, Marvel and Warner Brothers.

But her Bullet Journal career seemed to begin in 2017.

She now has an Instagram, YouTube and an Amazon page highlighting her product ‘Tracking My Life’.

5. Art_n_Foxes

Personal History

Again Laura from Art_n_foxes doesn’t seem to have an ‘about me’ page on her site, so I don’t have personal information except that she is Laura! Lol


Laura is one of our newer influences – she started her YouTube channel in 2020.

One of the things she is famous for is her artwork and this quickly grew in popularity.

I have thoroughly enjoyed following Laura’s bullet journal journey, as her themes are always very involved, quite elaborate and showcase her beautiful work.

She currently seems to have many affiliate links with discounts and along with here instagram and YouTube, that is where here career currently stands.



We have learned that bullet journaling is a journey. These masters have been going a long time and have put the work in.
