Favorite Fonts for Scrapbook Page Titles

Have you ever thought about a scrapbook page title not only telling your story in words, but also conveying the mood of your layout? That is what I tried to do by combining two of my favorite fonts on this page about our day trip to Kelleys Island on Lake Erie last summer.


Based on the sign welcoming us to the island, I chose similar font styles and colors to create the title for my layout. Using the offset feature on my Silhouette, I created custom mats for the letters to help them pop off the page. The script font is Lobster and the serif font is ChunkFiveEx. Both are free and available at dafont.com 


Hopefully I succeeded in conveying a fresh and casual nautical mood with this title. I love pairing two different styles of fonts, in this case a bold, condensed script with an ultrabold serif. You can see what the rest of the Get It Scrapped! Creative Team did in the full article.

  2. Definitely fresh and casual feel - I like the idea of taking your font cues from the sign on the island. Great page.

  3. Your font choices work great here! I would have been tempted to use the photo of the sign as a title block.
