Creative Title Treatments

Once you've chosen the perfect title for your scrapbook page, consider using one of the following fun techniques to add extra pizzazz to your project:

  • Print your title out using a fun font, then highlight the most important words with a bit of scrapbook chalk.
  • Print your title on a transparency then layer it over top of your layout's dominant photo.
  • Use rubber stamps to spell out your title on a tag and accent with a piece of pretty ribbon.
  • Combine several different styles of epoxy letter stickers to create a title with a "ransom note" effect.
  • Fake the look of a hand painted title by printing your words on the lightest gray setting possible. Color directly over the title with acrylic paint, colored pencils or watercolors.
  • Experiment with the text effects in Microsoft Word to create titles that circle around your page.
  • Design a layered title by printing part of your title on a sheet of vellum and placing it over a background of sticker letters.
  • Make a rebus style title by using small picture embellishments to replace some of the words in your title. For example, a heart shaped brad can be substituted for the word "love" or a smiley face sticker can be used in place of the word "happy."
  • Use a label maker from an office supply store to create your title.
  • Apply rub on letters to plain tin tiles, then attach to your page with glue dots.

Title It Up

The right title can really make a page come alive to the viewer. Try putting your spin on events with some creative wording and watch your scrapbook pages take shape. With the right title, your scrapbook pages are sure to pop.
