Hi! It’s Lisa today and I am your March designer challenge host.
I’ve decided to talk ‘Titles’ today. It’s all about making your title a feature. Sometimes your page can be inspired by your title. You have it already decided before you’ve even set off. But sometimes the title can be more of an after thought. That struggle deciding what and where and how????
Today a few of us from the team are getting together to show you how we’ve given our titles extra thought and made them the feature of the LO. Alongside the photos of course!
I’m going to start with Suzanna’s.
I just find this so eye catching. The way the photo splits the title and the different style of fonts. I also love how she’s replaced the ‘O’ from ‘Love’ with the rosette. So sweet!! A great example of how to play with a title. Suzanna says: ”There are a plethora of fonts/words available in the kit this month that make this challenge rather easy. I really wanted to incorporate the Simple Stories pink letters as well but they didn’t work with the “Friends” that was also pink”.
Next we have Sarah.
Such a playful LO. Sarah has used a cut file on this piece of patterned paper to really showcase her title. I love the business and how she’s mixed and grouped it all together. Really works well with the photo of her little one in the tree.
Moon Lee has treated us to another of her double page LO’s.
That wave the title sits on. Just beautiful and I love how it flows from one page to the next. So elegant.
Katherine really went in to this challenge with her creative head on. Here’s what she says about her page: ”My title was made with the DITL kit bag stitched right to the page. ‘Dream’ is cut from the Shimelle patterned paper and ‘BIG’ I handcut from the 6×6 exclusive paper and outlined with a sharpie”.
Such an eye catching title!!
When it comes to eye catching titles…..does it get more eye catching than this one from Kelly?
Kelly shares with us how she created this title. ”I found some clip art online for the Softball title, and then copied it and traced it using my Silhouette software. I then fussy cut out several words from the Shimelle paper to use as my subtitle”. That’s such a great tip and a great way to create titles.
And finally here is my page.
I created this LO using the fun paper from the March Kit. It makes title work very easy. I love that it’s so large and spreads across the page and I contrasted it against the rest of the page so it really stands out. I only stuck the centre of the letters down so I could slide my photos underneath the tops of the letters. You can watch a video of how this LO was made here.
I really hope you’ve enjoyed our creations and tips today. It’s fun to really make those titles POP!
Now time for the challenge…..so we’d like to see your titles now. Please get creative with your title work. You have until 4th April 11pm – EST to play along.

Love your tutorial! I’m totally lifting your page as we went to Hawaii last September with best friends. P.S. I could listen to you talk me thru layout pages all day. Hee hee hee.
Please do share when you’ve made it. I’d love to see : )
