Watch for it Wednesdays!! #29

For my Watch for it Wednesday tip this week, I wanted to get you thinking about ways to have more fun with your page titles and card sentiments. There are lots of different ways you can spice up your titles. For instance, if you are making a Halloween-themed layout, you could have a little ghost flying out of a letter, maybe some spooky eyes peaking out from the inside of a smaller letter, or a spooky cat perched on top of your title letters. On my example this week, I added the Cottage Cutz Mini Pumpkin inside one of the O's from my "Boo" page title. Since my title font has such nice large letters, this adorable little pumpkin sits perfectly inside the O. If you want to take your creativity one step further, you could actually replace a letter with a shape that matches the theme of your layout or card. For instance, if you were using Halloween as your title, change the o to a small pumpkin, the n to a screeching cat, the l to a witches broom, and so on. You can have equally as much fun with lots of other themes and holidays.

So, get your creative juices flowing and try to really mix things up on your next paper crafting project!!

Great tip Ruth Ellen. This is one of my favourite ways of doing titles. It always adds that little bit extra to a page or card.
Your layout is Wonderful :-)
