Today I have some inspiration to incorporate your titles into your design and hopefully also help you use up some of your alpha stash. We typically just add our title using one package of alphas for a nice uniform title, but mixing fonts and using larger or longer titles as a design element on your page can be really fun. I thought I would share a couple of pages using some of the newer collections from the Scraptastic store. For this first layout I used Maggie Holmes Open Book collection for a soft sleepy kitty look.
Maggie Holmes - Confetti - Gala Paper , Maggie Holmes - Confetti -Lovely Paper, Maggie Holmes - Confetti - Surprise Paper, Maggie Holmes - Confetti - Blast Paper, Maggie Holmes - Confetti - Happy Day Paper, Maggie Holmes - Confetti - Hooray Chipboard Thickers, Maggie Holmes - Confetti - Ephemera, Maggie Holmes - Open Book - Overlays, Chickaniddy - Silver Surfer Silver Foil Paper, Bella Blvd - Color Chaos - Chipboard Hearts and Stars, Bella Blvd - Clear Cuts - Silver Confetti Transparency, My Mind's Eye - On Trend - Party Enamel Shapes, Elle's Studio - Letters & Numbers Stickers - Dark Grey
main title is Stuffed Animal Paws and I used the Confetti Thickers
chipboard alphas along with letters cut from the silver foil paper. This
silver foil is a perfect weight to cut alphas with your die cutting
machines. After cutting them out I sanded the surface to give them a
brushed look, but they are still so nicely metallic.
the top of the page I added the a few pre-title words with little
letters next to the embellishments. Since this page is about my very
grey kitty, I used some of the grey, black and white chipboard
embellishments from Bella Blvd's Color Chaos collection.
second layout was super fun to create using the bright and cheerful
Bella Blvd Color Chaos collection. I added the Chickaniddy Jolly Good
brads because they are on sale in the store and coordinate so perfectly
with the Color Chaos collection.
Bella Blvd - Color Chaos - Ice Strandz Paper, Bella Blvd - Color Chaos - Orange Strandz Paper, Bella Blvd - Color Chaos - Peep Strandz Paper, Bella Blvd - Color Chaos - Chipboard Symbols, Bella Blvd - Color Chaos - Trinket Stickers, Bella Blvd - Color Chaos - Treasures &Text Stickers, Chickaniddy - Jolly Good - Mini Brads
divided my title to add embellishment in two places on either side of
my photos. The black letters are such fun sticker letters that I mounted
with foam tape for dimension for the first word and stitched down for
the second word. The wonderful thing about this collection is that there
are so many elements such as papers, stickers, chipboard, bows,
transparencies, and enamel shapes so you can really coordinate easily
and the colors work so well with other collections too. I can see this
being one of my faves for mixing and matching. Check out the whole Color Chaos collection HERE.
thought it would be fun to cut the last word in the title from my
background white cardstock allowing the splatter pattern to show thru.
one last close up photo of the upper right corner just because these
little stickers are too cute. A little black paint splatter and the
whole thing looks like very organized chaos to go with my silly photos.
