Using Title Strips

If you are anything like me, you will have a stash of cutoff title strips just hanging around waiting to be used..... look familiar?

Well, I would like to challenge you (and myself!) to get rid of some of this pile by turning them into layouts.... don't cut another piece of patterned paper, but rather use what's in your pile and create some new memories.

I have made three different layouts using strips in different arrangements.

On this page I've just added pieces of different strips at an angle and then combined them with stamped aeroplanes and some stickers. I also added one title strip as a border next to my photos.

On this next page I have stuck a variety of title strips in various shades of blue, pale yellow and green together across my page.  Added a strip of photos down the middle and then embellished with stamping, stickers, brads and diamante.

My final layout is a bit more complicated yet fun.  I dug through my pile and sorted out the colours that would best match my photos.  I then lay them in a sort diagonal basket-weave pattern.  Once happy I interwove the strips, cut them shorter where needed and eventually stuck them all down to the background cardstock.  I finished off my page with two photos, more stickers and a little bit of stamping on the edges.

My pile is not greatly reduced but I can safely say that I feel much better now that I have started making inroads into my stash.  I have a board on pinterest just dedicated to layouts using strips which is where I got the ideas for these three pages from. You are welcome to check it out here.

Get creative and show us your layouts using title strips.

Here is a twist by Connie...If you don't have title strips or not enough of those title strips just use the  scraps you have to create your layouts!

I made this page using leftovers from a kit class I had given.  I cut the strips and placed on a heart cutout.  After the heart was covered I trimmed the excess paper off.

  1. Awesome use of your scraps. Great layouts!

  2. Great examples! I love title strips. Sometimes I use the one that came with the paper I'm using as an extra accent, much like a washi strip.
