There are so many clever and creative ways to use our Title Builder volumes, and today, design team member Suzanna Lee is showing how she combined words, phrases and even single letters to choose the perfect title for special photos of her daughter. Let’s take a look!
Hiya scrappy peeps! It’s Suzanna here today! This month, along with a whole host of other fantastic goodies, Title Builder Volume 4 was released with the monthly kit. Did you add it to your shopping cart, or are you considering it? I have used these four great title-building stamps sets a lot since receiving them. Not only are they great for titles, but also for subtitles, large font journaling, borders, embellishments to your layouts, and more! Today I am combining the latest, greatest stamp: Title Builder Vol. 4, with the original Title Builder and Title Builder Vol. 2 to create a lengthy title for my layout.

The title of this layout is, in essence, also the journaling of this layout. These were portrait pictures that I took of my daughter, Mia. There is no “story” to tell, per se. This is her, at age 13, being a young teenager and posing for her scrapbooking Mum who needs pictures. It was the rare moment that she actually cooperated with me. Anybody else get the same teen girl sass and drama? Ugh…
“Beautiful”: Title Builder Vol. 4
“Girl” : Title Builder Vol. 2
“AMAZING”: Title Builder Vol. 4 Puffy Stickers
“amazing”: Title Builder Vol. 4
“things”: Title Builder Vol. 2 from “everything is”
First, I laid down a layer of watercolor, eyeballing the approximate size. Then I stamped using a coordinating ink color. Some masking was necessary to get the desired letters to build words that didn’t exist as whole words but it was dead easy to do. There is SO much you can do with these stamp sets!
You can see in the photo above, I even used the stamp set to create a border to add black to the layout, using the Title Builder Vol. 2 for this diamond chain. The black ink outlining every other diamond helps guide you eye to the other part of the layout as the black and white photos tend to be very dominant in the top left corner without that weight of the black in the bottom right.
The flowers included on Title Builder Vol. 4 make a lovely addition to the title and compliment the Flourish Paper Stack patterns paper behind one of the photos, tying the various elements of the layout together.
It’s amazing what you can do with stamps for your memory keeping, isn’t it?! And that’s just a fraction of the stamps utilized on that one layout. There are so many options! Each stamp volume comes with a download of possible phrases for just that volume, but it’s exponential when you combine volumes!
I have a process video of how this layout came together so you can see how I pieced some of the words together:
