Edited July 28th – If you’ve come here from the Practical Scrappers Blog, Welcome! I’ve added a few more pictures to this post to show you guys more ways to accent the most simplest of titles – ones you print off yourself! If you find yourself needed a title but are short on alphabet stickers (is anyone ever short on alphabet stickers?) or alphabet stamp sets (as I was last Christmas), it’s really easy to find a font you like in your word processing software of choice and with a few clicks you’ve got totally unique titles for your pages. I chose to print all my title onto Whisper White card stock for continuity but you could easily print them onto patterned paper and cut out each letter for a more varied look.
For your convenience. all added content is in red italics.
I have been a busy little bee in my craft room this month. For the second year I completed a December Daily album (started by Ali Edwards, check out her blog for more details) which is posted on my personal blog. I have a pile of non-Stampin’ Up! product still to use up so this album is mostly made up of old products but I did use some SU inks, stamps, and punches.
It inspired me to create a mini album (which is a class I will be teaching on January 5th – go here to sign up) talking about our Christmas Traditions. Here are some sneaks, if you want to see all the content you will need to sign up for the class! 🙂
On the title here I added the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details just along the bottom edges of the letters to create the look of depth or shadow. Below I used Dazzling Details in a similar way but on top of the letters this time to mimic the look of snow or ice sitting on top of the title.
The pages below don’t have any significant examples of my use of Stampin’ Up’s version of Stickles but I added them for your enjoyment anyway. Looking back at this post I think I may use this year’s version of this Simply Scrappin’ Kit to make my 2012 December Daily! (BTW it’s called Merry Moments Simply Scrappin and will be available on August 1st.)
I am using the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin’ Kit (plus various other things I have in my stash.) It is a beautiful kit and will be gone soon so you will want to snap yours up now!
The class is $42.00 which may seem like a lot but here is what you get:
– Complete templates for all my page designs
– Access to all my stamps, inks, punches, Big Shot and dies, ribbons, brads and other accessories.
– Customized titles (if mine don’t work for you!)
– My help and the company of other fun, creative scrappers who I know will take my designs to new heights!
If you would like to make one of these (or just get the products so you can make it later), go here
to register for my class. Hurry though as registration MUST close on Dec 31st otherwise I cannot guarantee the product can be shipped on time. Also, these items will ONLY be available with Stampin’ Up! until January 3rd!!
