Write It down Wednesdays, Coming up with Titles for your layout

Welcome back! This week are going to talk about titling a layout. How to come up, where to get inspired, and tricks to come up with titles for your layouts.

I do not know about you but when it comes to pulling a title out of my head sometimes feels like I am trying to pull out my own teeth.  I can spend countless hours trying to come up with title for my layout, and then there is times where I can come up with one in seconds.  When I get stuck in that teeth pulling situation, I love to turn to Pinterest, Scrapbooking Galleries and forums for some inspiration.  I have collected and saved many of my finding on one of my Pinterest boards that I refer back to often.  I love to find the perfect title but sometimes it takes a little work to make it my own.  Here are some tricks I Like to do to make my title a little more personal for my layouts.

  • Find a favorite quote, phrase, or saying that goes with your photo's. With this layout of my son and his wonderful girlfriend,  I used a well known Pirate saying which worked well with the photo. Scrapbooking kit credit: Magical Scraps Galore: Scourge of the Seven Seas
  • Use a Movie, TV Show, or Song Title and Change it up a little. With this layout the Egret kept stalking hubby while fishing trying to get into his bait bucket and the whole time the Seagulls from Disney's Finding Nemo is all I heard in my head as I was snapping photos.

  • Pull it from the journaling on your Page.  Find the words that describe the photos. With this layout of my oldest daughter, I used Lyrics to her favorite song for journaling, and pulled the title from the word used most often in the journaling.

  • Stating the obvious, What is going on in the photos?  Summer? Waves?  With this layout of my youngest daughter, I used what was going on around her to title the page and journal about her strength I admire. Scrapbooking Kit credit: Wendy Tunison Designs: Just Us {August} Bundle 
With all the inspiration out on the web, you are bound to create that perfect title for your layout.  Thanks for stopping by this week.
