A recent article over at Get It Scrapped! covered ideas for using short titles on scrapbook pages. Debbie Hodge wrote:
"A good title connects your photos to their story. One-word titles are clear and direct, often labeling your topic and even pointing the way to deeper meaning. What’s more, they offer great design opportunities."
I often pull my title from my journaling, and in this case the one word I chose has a double meaning. While many of the pieces in my glass collection are precious in terms of monetary value, even more precious to me are the memories associated with them. These pieces all have a personal story to tell, so I love their family history as much as I admire their beauty.
To get started, I chose patterned paper and brads from My Mind's Eye Nostalgia collection and some Thickers. As the page got going, I also pulled my American Crafts Date Stamp, some more MME, and my Martha Stewart and EK Success punches.
You can see the rest of the Creative Team's layouts and read the article here. Do you prefer to create shorter or longer titles? Personally, I enjoy them both!
