Choosing which photos to use is the easy part, making a decision on your family scrapbook titles is a whole other issue.
Titling your scrapbooking page is often the hardest part of your scrapbooking layout. After all, you only have a few words to say so much and having the right words on the page is the key to the perfect layout.
That's why we've compiled these 10 helpful tips for the perfect family title ideas for your scrapbook layouts. Make sure you read all the way to the end for a bonus!
Don't just hide the title in the top corner or down the bottom of the scrapbooking layout, incorporate the letters into the design of your page in a creative way.
I like to think of the words and letters as embellishments and I try to make them look just as great as the other elements on the scrapbook layout.
In the example below, I have cut some circles in a bright top layer and using pre-purchased wooden letters, have spelled out the word F U N for one of my family scrapbook titles.
Don't be afraid to mix and match fonts on your scrapbook layouts. This adds to the creativity of not only your family scrapbook titles but to your whole layout.
When I'm mixing and matching fonts, I like to create it on the computer as a DIY printable so that I can see exactly how it looks before I print it out.
Designing it on the computer first is a quick way to find fonts that look great together before jumping in and sticking things down.
Get creative with the materials you use to create your family scrapbook titles. They don't always have to be handwritten or created from cardstock!
Try using stamps, die cuts, stickers, wooden letters, string or bits of scrap materials.
In the example below, I have cut out the word FURRY from a scrap of patterned felt for a scrapbooking layout that will feature our furry family members.
Don't feel like you need a long explanation on every page, often a story can be told in one or two simple words, allowing you to unclutter your scrapbooking layout.
For e.g. instead of writing Summer Family Trip to The Beach as one of your family scrapbook titles, consider shortening it to something like Beach Days or Summer Vibes.
This will give you plenty more room on your scrapbooking layout to really focus on the photographs and beautiful decorations.

Purposely misspelling a word is totally allowed when it comes to family scrapbook titles!
In the example below I have purposely misspelt the word perfect to read purrfect for a scrapbooking layout that will feature my beloved cat.
Using modern acronyms also makes for short and sweet titles, such as OMG (oh my god) or YOLO (you only live once), or you could even use a hashtag such as #vanlife or #summervibes.
Getting creative with your own handwriting makes for a great personal touch to your family scrapbook titles.
It doesn't always have to pretty calligraphy style cursive writing either.
There are lots of great 'fancy' writing styles that you can manage easily with a normal marker or gel pen. A quick google search should find you some great example to copy!
