Confetti and Color Chaos *Scraptastic Store

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.

My 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.


At 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.


My 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.

I 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.


I 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.


and 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.
