Memories Made #33 Scrapbooking Process Video: My Crazy Boy (combination titles)

Welcome to a new month of "Memories Made" videos! This month I'm focusing on: Title Design!

Titles are actually one of the items that I sometimes struggle with on my layouts. Where to place them? What they should look like? What they should say? In an effort to help me, I'm sharing some ideas with YOU. Watch for additional ideas throughout this month!

This week's memory: My Son's Crazy Personality

Do you ever develop your photos only to discover ones that make you laugh out loud? This was one of those for me. While we were shooting some fall photos, my son gave me a few photos like this. You know what? This is the real and honest part of who he is. Most boys don't sit quietly. They live loud and big. And he's no exception. So rather than document the fall event, I discuss his personality in this layout. Here is the layout I created from this memory:



This week's technique: Combination Titles

Combination titles simply mean that you combine more than one type of typography or alpha style to create a title. For this layout I used letter stickers, a welded die cut word from Silhouette, and some clear letters. You could also use stamps, printed words, or your own handwriting for a combination title. This is a great title style for using up your alpha sticker stash as well. Here are a few close-up photos of how I used this title design style:

  2. Hi Jen, I love the fonts you use for your titles. Could you add them to your list of supplies, please. I am having trouble finding bold script fonts that I like and cut easily on the Silhouette.
    Thanks. Love your layouts
