Halloween Treat Bag Toppers

I made these adorable treat bag toppers with images from Ildi Co.   I used circle and scalloped circle punches and added my own little dots in each scallop with a marker.

Fun Titles

Playdate With RebeccaWhen I first started scrapbooking, my titles were pretty simple.  OK, boring.  As I improved my skills and style, I began to create titles that were more interesting; but they were still missing something.  Then I discovered how to really make them come alive.  One way to accomplish this is to use different fonts for different words in my title.  In the layout here, "Play Date" and "Rebecca" are 2 different styles of a Cricut font,  (I think I used  All Mixed Up, but I'm not sure.)

Another technique I use to jazz up my titles is doodling on and around them.  Here I used Souffle Pens, made by Marvy Uchida, to draw little polka dots on and around the letters.  Finally, I wrote in  the word "with" using the same pens.  I don't know if the scan picked up the colors, but they are bright and fun - just the right addition to this page all about Haley and her friend Rebecca.

Try spicing up the title on your next layout using these techniques.  It's easy and fun.  Happy scrapping!  Remember to check out my Etsy Shop for one-of-a-kind creations for scrapbooking and cardmaking!
