TOOLS TO GET STARTED BULLET JOURNALING:
I wanted to share some of the best and most affordable tools available for bullet journalling.
- This notebook which is almost identical to the cult favorite and has raving reviews for a fraction of the cost!
- This pen that won’t bleed through the page and is great for inputting your dailies
- This Pen for art work and faux calligraphy
- These Markers for decorating and color coding your journal
- Stencils for making layouts quicker, or if you’re not handy at drawing
Also not necessary but this MEGA pack of PRINTABLES is amazing!
Obviously the only things that you need to get started is a notebook and pen and you will use them the most. However, the markers are useful for colour coding your journal and the stencils will save you time in creating beautiful layouts!
How to Make an Attention Grabbing Fancy Header
- Make a banner around the header!
- Doodle around the header to make it stand out!
- BOLD FONT MAKES IT STAND OUT!
- Use a different font for the header from the rest of your spread!
- Bubble Letters REALLY stand out in most Bullet Journals!
My favorite way to add a special header to any page easily is to make sure the title is a different font than the rest of the page.
If I plan on using cursive through the page (which I like doing for journal entries), then the header will be bold and all caps.
For a page that will be all caps (which I like doing for lists) then the header will be cursive.
Sometimes the best idea is as simple as that!
The other thing that is super simple but makes a big difference is to add a banner. See below on how to make a simple bullet journal banner now!
