Hey there! Meagan here! I don’t know about you but for me the title can really make a layout! Sometimes it’s what I spend the most time working on! Just trying to capture the essence of the page with the perfect title! Well, here are 10 ideas for you to make that title pop!!

1. Put your title right on the photo.

I love this fun layout by Carol using Beach Baby. That large photo is so great and adding the title right on the photo in a non-bulky way just adds to the fun landscape! Carol also used a word art from the Beach Baby Word Art pack.

I love this cute photo and gorgeous clustering by Isabel. The title here contrasts perfectly with the green photo and I love how simple yet elegant it makes the title next to the gorgeous and radiant photo and clustering. Isabel used Two Become One and Two Become One the Wordy Bits.

2. Use the alpha in contrasting sizes.

Love this gorgeously clustered layout by Jhari. She used the alpha from Bliss for her title and just changed up the size of the alpha to create interest with her great title!

Again, Em used the alpha that went with the kit, Heart Song and created a great line of text nestled inside the next bigger line simply by altering the size of the alpha from one word to the next.

3. Put it on it’s Side.

Don’t you just love Julie’s bold use of white in this layout?! Stunning! She adds to the visual interest of the small photos and the large one by having some of the title on it’s side, leading our eye down to the end of the title for an even more dramatic effect. Love! She used the alpha from She Is and a word tag from the kit to make this title.

In this lovely layout, Carol has turned the word strip on it’s side which is perfect to accent the vertical strip of photos! She used Heart Song and a word art from the Heart Song Word Art Clusters.

Aww!! more sweet baby photos!!! Love this page by EmJ and how the title is split on both sides of this adorable large photo! Especially with large photos, split titles are a great way to let the photo be the focus while getting your message across. EmJ also used Baby Mine.

5. Let a word art do all the talking!

Manda used a word art cluster from Bliss to just perfectly capture her feelings in this sweet photo! Word art clusters can make it easier to grab and go with your titles! Bliss and Bliss the Word Art clusters used in this layout.

In this sweet  minimalistic layout, the white space really draws your eye to the photo and the word art cluster is a great contrasting color and the perfect size to stand out without taking away from the precious photo!

In this layout, I used the “Swiss Cheese” method or cut-out method to make my title more interesting. I used a kit now retired called “The Simple Life”.

7. Wrap it Around

I love text paths and putting text around a shape or photo. It reminds me of a paper scrapbooking technique that I don’t see often enough in the digital world!

Here’s a fun layout by Katya and her title follows the curve of the cute little dots! Just perfect!! She used Bucket List.

I did this layout using various Dream Big Designs’ kits and it just was perfect to make the title wrap around the photo to match the radial design of the strips coming from the photo.

Use a variety of alphas, elements, word tags and journal cards to piece together your title!

In this layout, Jenn used some word art tags and a journal card to make the fun, layered title! Jenn used Something Borrowed, Something Blue for this layout.

In this layout, EmJ used the kit alpha, regular text and then a word art cluster to piece together her great “Someday I’ll Travel Around the World” title.
