American Crafts | Titles

I love creating creative titles for my pages.  Big titles can make a huge impact and become a statement on your page.

How To:
Cut out title using die cutting machine on white background paper.  Paint orange watercolor paints against cut title background, set aside to dry.  Cut each word out from different pieces of patterned paper.  Adhere white cardstock die cut title piece (with orange paint) onto a second piece of white background paper and adhere down.  Place die cut title word pieces within the negative spaces and adhere down. Flick black spray mist across the page and set aside to dry.  Print a small black and white photo measuring 2.7"x2.7" back it with a slightly larger piece of cut specialty Die-Cut Scout paper and adhere down to left bottom side of layout.  Adhere a white foam "xo" sticker on top.  Use a date stamp to stamp date below the bottom left side of photo.  Place a die cut piece from cardstock & acetate shapes pack just above photo (tucking it slightly behind).  Place a stamped mylar flair embossed gold sticker right next to die cut.  On the bottom right hand side of page adhere a torn strip of washi tape.  Place a transparent sticker just above washi tape.  Adhere a small arrow sticker from grab bag just above.  Apply adhesive to the back of a wood slice.  Embellish wood slice with ampersand and camera puffy sticker and then adhere to the bottom right hand side of page.  Place a transparent arrow sticker just above.  Use a needle and white thread to handstitch around the words "like" and "love" in the title.  Finish page by adhering a large transparent floral sticker to the top right hand side of page.

I hope that I have inspired you to create your own creative title!
