September Class- Title Techniques

Next to the pictures, the title can be the most important element on your pages. Coming up with clever titles is as easy as a quick internet search or thumbing through the pages of my favorite title idea book...

If you don't have this book and want it - Let me know... I sell them on a pre-order basis for $20.00... you can check out my copy anytime, but it is more convienient to have your own!

Anyway, this class is not about coming up with great titles - it's how to make those titles LOOK great and where to put them on your layouts besides the time tested top of the page...

This month we have 2 choices - you can complete the Layout Class OR the Titles Only Class...

The layout Class will be creating this adorable layout: SUMMERTIME

I don't want to confuse anyone -- but I know I have some who prefer layouts with NO flowers... so I have 4 kits, and only 4 kits that have ribbon knots instead of flowers (See picture below). The kit is exactly the same ( SUMMERTIME) except for the ribbons... If you want this special kit - please make sure to let me know ASAP...

The second class option - we will create many titles together... a sampling is pictured below...this is called the TITLES ONLY option.

Putting this class together was so much fun and I am very excited to share the information with you!

See you September 6th! 6:30 PM

RSVP on our Meet-Up Group page... I even have it set so you can prepay through Meet-Up now!!!!
