I wanted to find something new to do with my Title Builder products, instead of just creating a normal stamped title on my layout. When I looked at my photo on my 8-1/2" x 11" page, I almost immediately went to patterned paper to give it a frame, and then thought, "Why not use words from the Title Builder?" I'm so glad that I did this, and I'd like to share what I created with you—a mix of title and journaling that frames my photo! (*All product links are affiliate links.

To get the spacing right, I put my photo down first and began by laying my word stamps from the Title Builder Stamp directly on the page. I changed the words around a bit to fit the spacing, and what I wanted to say about the photo. I then started to add the Title Builder Acrylic and Title Builder Wood Veneer pieces.
Once I had those pieces in place, I started at the top left corner with "this is my" and started stamping around my photo, which was still in place on the page, alternating colors all of the way around. For the words that didn't appear on the Title Builder Stamp, I used the Title Builder Alphabet Stamp and the pink Letter and Number Stickers. Finally, I added a few "fairy dust" sparkles from the Happy Birthday Stamp around the words.
With such a colorful & prominent frame drawing your eye to my photo from our 2016 trip to Disneyland, I didn't want to add much more product to detract from it. After stamping and before adhering my acrylic and wood veneer, I typed out my short journaling in Photoshop Elements and printed it on the page. I then added a strip of patterned paper to the top and bottom to ground the page, then added two tags from the August 2017 Kit, which I sewed with my sewing machine, a Tiny Heart Sticker, and a Mickey Mouse head out of the Live Laugh Love Enamel Dots.
I love the way this turned out, and it was fairly simple to do! Pull out your Title Builder products today and frame your photo! Happy creating!
