More titles to share...

Found some more examples of titles. Just pictures of different ways to use your fonts.

This title was cut using a Sizzix machine. It was one of those "happy accidents." I only had a small scrap of the cranberry CS to cut my letters. Anyway, while cutting the letters, my inexperience with the machine, I guess produced some cuts that didn't produce a clean cut. Trying to salvage my paper, I had to use my scissors to cut the letters. But to cut the letters out, I needed to be able to get into some tight areas, so I trimmed the letters that didn't cut so well into odd shapes. When I finally got the letters out, I liked the negative even better, so I went with that. This is actually the left page of a 2-page layout. The pictures were taken by holding the camera up and grabbing each daughter to capture a close up. Some of my favorite pictures.

This title was cut with my Cricut. I mixed upper and lowercase letters for a "random" look. I also cut out the shadow layer using solid pink cardstock and off-set the base letter, cut in Metallic pink paper. When you use the shadow layer, don't always line it up in the center, off-set it for a 3-D look.

This title was cut using the Coluzzle system. I used a light blue CS as the base, tore a strip of med. blue CS and adhered that to the lt. blue. Finally, tore a dk. blue CS and adhered that to the med. blue on the bottom third of the letter. I wanted an "ocean" feel to the title, since I was journaling about my in-laws reaching the other side of the country on their first cross-country trip.

Ruth, I wished I had taken a picture of the title you created on Saturday's New Year crop! She ran her die cut letters through her Cuttlebug embossing folder and then inked them!! Another fun way to get a new look out of your fonts!
