Inspired By...Ransom Titles

The assignment from Get It Scrapped!: Make a page with a "ransom" title.
You know, that ransom note look where the message is made from words or letters cut out of a magazine so the criminal's handwriting can't be identified. What a fun idea!

Collection Featured: Allison Kreft Composition & Color
This page is about my husband putting up a ceiling in our basement. I made my ransom title with an assortment of Thickers mounted on card stock. I cut the card stock the same height, but varied the width according to the width of the letters. I tried to make sure my hand cutting was a bit uneven. (that was not hard to do) The "messy" look of a ransom title goes well with a messy remodeling project. I even managed to word my title like a mystery or detective story!

You can see what the rest of the design team has done with their titles in the article here. What a great way to bust your letter stash!

  1. I have to admit I didn't know this style of title was known as a "ransom" when this assignment came out. Seems obvious now I think about it! I love the colours you have used to make your letters stand out with this great story

  10. Great way to use all those thickers fonts that don't have enough left to make the titles you want.

  11. I like the way you have given order to all the different color letters by lining them up on tiles of the same size. Nicely done - you've taken a technique and made it fit your style page perfectly.
