Having Fun with Eggs

Here’s a fun way to create a title for your layouts!

Use a photo to create your letters.

Every year at Easter I end up with some less than stellar photos of the boys searching for eggs, but the one great photo I do get is of the carton of eggs after the hunt is over.

Print a large photo or multiple smaller photos to cut title letters.

To create this title I printed one large copy of the egg photo and cut it using a Cricut die cut machine. (These letters are using the “Mickey Font” cartridge.)

You could also print several photos or reprint one smaller photo multiple times.

Outline the letters.

To give the title letters a bit more impact I traced around each letter with a marker. This is WAY easier than trying to matte each letter!

TIP:

Cut out sample letters using scrap paper before you cut your photos. This way you’ll know your title fits and what size you’d like the letters to be.

Obviously you can use this idea for more than Easter. Try photos of other groups of items to create a fun title for your layouts. Here’s some ideas to get you started.

More photo ideas:

  • Flowers
  • Candies
  • Toys
  • Jewelry
  • Office supplies like paperclips
  • Christmas decorations

      Thanks Libby! Luckily in scrapbooking we don’t have to say ‘lazy’ we can call it ‘smart’! 😉

    I love this idea!! I always take tons of nature pictures camping and on hikes, this would be a great idea for some of those!

      That sounds perfect Julie! When you choose a font make sure it’s kind of a fat and chunky font, so you’ll see more of what’s in the photo. If you try this I’d love to see it, come share it on the Facebook page! http://facebook.com/ScrapbookWonderland
