Hi Everyone! Happy September! I have a layout with a big title for some BIG impact! I used my Silhouette to create a large title and Bella Blvd Lucky Starz papers gave this page just the pop of color it needed to get the WOW factor. Here’s what I used for my Big Title, Big Impact layout:
- Bella Blvd Lucky Starz Punch
- Bella Blvd Lucky Starz Peep
- Bella Blvd Lucky Starz Ice
- Bella Blvd Lucky Starz Scallop
- Bella Blvd Lucky Starz Gulf
- Bella Blvd Lucky Starz Color Crazy
- Bella Blvd Button Market Text
- Silhouette Cameo
- Liquid Adhesive
- Ranger Multi Medium Matte
- American Crafts Precision Pen
- Star Punch *you could use dies for the same effect
My first step, after deciding on the photo and papers, was to create the title using my Silhouette. Here’s a screenshot of how the title looked prior to cutting. I used Aerial Black font at 72 pt. I needed the letters cut as an outline only so I ungrouped and chose release compound path so I could remove all the inside cuts from the letters. I also inserted a star from my library. I used the Punch paper because the colors are soft and it lists the days of the week, fitting perfectly with the theme of the page.
I wanted to back the title with a subtle pattern with some color to have contrast between the background paper and the letters in the title, so I trimmed down the Scallop paper to fit behind each letter (around 1.5 in). This gave me a colorful title with a pop. Surprisingly, it didn’t take long to use liquid adhesive to adhere individual pieces behind each letter! To back the star I used the chevron side of the Gulf paper.
I cut strips of paper using the Ice and Color Crazy papers, adhering them at a slight angle along the bottom edge of the page. I also made a photo mat with the same papers to keep consistency on the page.
To embellish I used a mini and a small star punch from my stash. I punched about a billion (ha!) of each star then adhered with Multi Medium Matte. Next I added a few of the Text buttons.
To finish I used the 01 Precision Pen to outline each letter. It gives the letters definition and ties in the other black elements on the page.
Try making a big impact on your page with a big title, I think you’ll like the result!
