Adding more fun and creativity to your Bullet Journal is one of the parts I like the most about this system. But I must say – once you get comfortable with one type of header, it’s so easy to just stick with it.
It’s wonderful if you do, but chances are you might be looking into adding some more interest to your header repertoire, and I’m here to help with tons of ideas!
Headers are the things that set the theme for the page and its design, so it’s good to always have tons of options to choose from, so you can create something unique every time.
Bullet Journal Supplies
You’re free to use any supplies you like, from a simple black pen to stickers and scrapbook paper.
However, I must mention a few of my favorites.
First, I think it’s essential to have a good fineliner, and thankfully, there are some amazing ones on the market.
My two favorites are Sakura Pigma Micron and Faber Castell Pitt Artists pens, they are the smoothest one I’ve ever had.
However, on a more budget side, I’d strongly recommend Unipin fineliners – they are great and can withstand so much!
Another basis of the header making is probably color, and here I must mention my favorites – Tombow Dual Brush Pens, Zebra Mildliners, and on a budget side – Crayola Super Tips.
Recently I’ve also been going crazy about acrylograph pens form Archer and Olive – they don’t bleed and the layering looks so beautiful. Be sure to check my Detailer Review of Archer and Olive Acrylograph Pens.
If you decide to get any of Archer and Olive products (like their amazing journals) be sure to use code MASHA10 that will give you 10% off your order.
Ok, let’s look into different header ideas.
Simple Black and White Headers
Let’s start with minimalism with some simple black and white headers. An amazing thing about these is that you don’t even need to have any special calligraphy skills or extra supplies – just you and your black pen.
I love how cute these look and all you need is a black pen and a grey marker. Another awesome thing about these ideas- you don’t need to have any extra calligraphy skills.
I love how simple those are, and yet the little botanical elements make these headers look so unique and sweet.
These look so interesting with the contrast of different types of lettering and different colors, from dark black to light gray.
I love these headers, especially the ones with a drop shadow. It’s been one of my favorite techniques and it really looks amazing on your Bullet Journal pages.
You can easily make your titles more interesting if you add some banners to the mix.
Be sure to check my post Easy and Creative Bullet Journal Banners for some more ideas.
I love how adding a little bit of muted color adds to the design. If you want to keep if black and white but still add something extra, I’d recommend using grayscale set of Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
50 super fun and easy headers that again – will not require you to be able to do brush lettering or any other type of calligraphy. And with how small they are it will definitely look great on your weekly spreads.
Another fun way to add accents without using a lot of colors is by using metallic pens and markers. Some of my favorites are Uniball Signo pens and Staedtler Metallic markers.
One more example of how some simple lines and banners can help you create stunning headers. My favorite effect is a white pen on black, I used it the first time in my Coffee Themed Bullet Journal setup and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since.
If you decide to create such an effect, I really advise to use White Sakura Gelly Roll pen, they really are the best white gel pens I’ve ever tried.
How pretty are these titles, and so very simple to create! These are perfect for your weekly or daily spreads.
