If you follow my Project Life layouts, you know I try to keep my pages pretty simple and clean. If you follow my regular digital scrapbooking pages … you know I am in love with details … all the little embellishments that help draw the eye into the page and help tell the story.
Sometimes my Project Life pages, meet my digital scrapbooking pages and I get a sort of marriage of the two.
This layout, summarizing my daughters U11 soccer year is still a pretty simple and clean Project Life event page … but it does add in a few extra details to round out the story telling.
In the spotlight on Becky Higgins’ blog found here, I choose this layout to share with Becky’s blog readers. One reader asked about how I created the title card. I thought it best to put it in a post, so all the details could be shared.
I started with this amazing Soccer Theme Kit found here.
Here’s a look at the card I used as the base for my title card.
I added some adorable bits of embellishments from Dani Mogstad’s Playball Kit found here.
Form Dani’s preview, you can see the adorable soccer ball, the star rounds, and the already stapled & folded ribbon … so cute! (and the perfect colors too.)
So I added them onto my base journal card as shown below:
and then I just added some fun fonts to finish off the Title Card.
Soccer is done in Chalk Hand Lettering Shaded Demo
Highlights is done in Varsity
U11 2012 -2013 uses Eurostile
Journaling is Traveling Typewriter
Because the soccer ball and star round from Dani’s kit has a slightly distressed look to them, I used a textured brush to erase & distress my font a bit for the title “Soccer Highlights”. I also turned the words into a sticker and added a drop shadow.
Hope that helps show how you can take a basic journal card and add a few simple touches to create a custom Title Card. Thanks for reading.
