Check out how Biker Chick Jenny Chesnick used our Makin' the Grade collection to create a Fall sports page...
Hi LYB Fans! Jen here with another Making the Grade project. Today I wanted to showcase one of my favorites ways to create a title. It's a hot trend right now to create titles and shapes with your die cutting machine and using that negative. It gives the layout a unique feel and dimension.
For this sports themed school project I wanted to use the school name and mascot. I did a simple design in my Silhouette software using Georgia font. I cut the title directly into my background 12x12 paper then lined the backside with a contrasting color paper. You could also line your contrasting paper with dimensional dots to give your title a 3D look. I chose to keep it flat and instead created depth with my other elements.
I add several layers of dimensional dots to my photo to have it stand out above my embellishments. If you don't want to use that many dimensional dots you can also create the same look with scrap paper. Simply fold your paper into a tri-fold leaving the paper "puffed" then simply attach it to the backside of your photo. By making the photo the "top" element it is sure not to get lost in the among the other elements.
