5 Easy Ideas For Creative and Unique Scrapbook Titles!
It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and struggle to come up with creative scrapbook titles. Lucky for you, we have some tips when your scrapbooking writer’s block strikes.
1. Set the scene.
This is fairly basic, but something so many people overlook. We’ve all seen tons of titles like, “Julia’s Piano Recital”, “Annie’s Dance Exhibition”, and “Colby’s Soccer Game”. Think about the other elements. Where was the event held? What was it called? How about the date or season of the event?
If Annie’s dance theme for this year was “All That Jazz”, consider making that the title instead of stating the obvious. There’s just something much catchier and more appealing about “All That Jazz”.
The same goes for Colby’s Soccer Game. How much more enticing does, “Boys’ State Semi-Finals Soccer Tournament” sound?! Or even “Spring Soccer 2017”?! Sometimes it’s just nice to switch things up.
2. Alliteration is your friend.
As you probably learned in grade school, alliteration is never a bad idea! It just adds an element of fun and takes things to the next level.
Imagine you’re looking through a friend’s scrapbook album. Which is more likely to capture your attention— “Brittany’s Party”, or “Brittany’s Birthday Bash”?! Probably the second one. Incorporating alliteration is fairly simple, but it definitely helps your page stand out.
3. Use what you have.
Who says titles have to be made out of cardstock or stickers?! If you have any memorabilia from whatever event or occasion you’re scrapbooking, you can easily use it to create a one-of-a-kind title for your layout.
For example, if you and a few friends went to a concert, you can cut out letters or numbers from your ticket stubs.
If you’re scrapbooking a wedding, use your place card as a title of sorts. We collect so much from wherever we go, from tickets, to brochures, to postcards. This is just another way to make use of those items and take your layout to the next level!
4. You can never go wrong with puns.
Some of the best greeting cards and social media posts you see involve puns of some sort. Why should scrapbooking be any different?! Your titles don’t always have to be simple and straightforward.
For birthday parties, you can use puns like, “Piece of cake” or “Lettuce celebrate”. Of course, it all depends on what photos you have.
If you’re scrapbooking photos of your pets, there are endless play-on words and puns! Think about how cute your cat layout will look with a title that reads, “My Furry Best Friend” or “My Purrfect Pet”.
5. Think outside the box.
Titles aren’t creative simply because of their verbiage. Get create with the placement, the font, the colors, and the details. Sure, it may be easier to just stick a simple title at the top of your page, but what fun is that?! If you’re printing the title or cutting it out, choose a font that you think suits the layout.
Don’t be afraid to have the letters in your title staggered, or the words divided across two pages. These are all things that will set your layout apart from all the other ones you’ve done!
These are just some of the ways to get creative with your scrapbook titles. Do you have any go-to methods for choosing a unique title? Let us know!
