Title Borders For Your Graduation Scrapbook Pages – Part 1

Ever run out of title ideas for your scrapbook pages? I often get scrapper’s block when trying to think of a title for a scrapbooking layout that I’m working on. The good news is that with the Achievements Embellishments and the word art sheet that’s included in the Achievements Paper Pack, you’ll have lots of title ideas for your graduation scrapbook pages. They would also be great as titles for your Achievements Fast2Fab album pages. To illustrate, I’ve created two sets of title borders using the word art sheet from the Achievements paper pack and titles from the Achievements Embellishments. For even more ideas, I’ve added a few hand printed titles. You’ll also find title ideas for your graduation scrapbook pages on Creative Memories Scrapbooking Page Title Ideas board on Pinterest.
