It's All About the Title

I title just about every layout I make.  But most of the time that means pulling out a pack of thickers and sticking them on. It works but its just not always a lot of fun (even if I have lots of thickers to choose from.)  So I started thinking about how else I could make a title.

I remembered those stories I read in Highlights magazine when I was little - the ones where pictures substituted for some of the words.    And I decided to use that as the inspiration for the title on my next layout.

This layout is made with goodies from my March Studio Calico box.  Everything came in the kits except the dog die cut - it was in a dear Lizzy die cut pack that was a subscriber's special and the wood heart (from my stash).  I love the mix of fonts, painted wood veneer and a die cut to create a title.  It is totally unexpected and not like any other layouts in my album.  And it was still super quick and easy.

I'd love to see your take on different ways to make a title - link me up.

Thanks for stopping by.. 


  1. I love titles using different fonts! So clever. The red ampersand is the best!

  2. So cute! I'll have to try this title trick.

    1. Thanks Emily. I'd love to see what you come up with.
