Before we delve into scrapbook lettering tips and tricks, I've got a few tips for deciding the wording of your title and designing it.
Keep your title short and punchy so that it's easy to read and fits on your page with enough room for the other elements. For e.g. instead of writing "making a snowman in winter", you could just write something like "snow time" or "winter". After all, the photograph will tell the rest of the story. For those days when scrapbook title inspiration is hard to find, choose a title from the book 10,000 Instant Scrapbook Page Titles.
Titles don't always have to be up top in the center. In fact, they look great running vertically down the page, diagonally across the page, or even smack bang in the middle of the page. Before sticking anything down, move your photo and other elements around on your layout so that you can easily visualize how it will look.
You can see in the example below, (from page 13 of the book "525 New & Advanced Scrapbooking Sketches - Vol2") that the scrapbook lettering looks great running vertically down the page.

Now that you know what you will write and roughly where it will go, decide what materials you will use. There are two ways to do this:
Scrapbook lettering can be made from all sorts of things, which I will talk about a little further down.
Now that you know how to come up with your title ideas, let's talk about ticks and trips that will give your title that WOW factor.
Scrapbook lettering ideas do not have to follow the usual rules of writing. That rule about beginning with a capital letter followed by lower case letters? Well, you can forget that when it comes to scrapbooking if you like. Go ahead and mix up your capitals however you please.
Likewise, scrapbook lettering does not have to feature the same font throughout. It doesn't even have to be the same size. Changing the font and/or the size of your font is an easy way to add some WOW to your scrapbook titles.
Make use of all the lovely novelty pens on the market. You can get pens that go on like paint, chalk, or glitter. You can even get pens that change color seamlessly as you write!
