Storyline Chapters | How to Get Summer On the Page
large titles and summer vibes
Do you still have summer themed stories from last summer? Do you scrap those on your pages now? Do you wish to know how to make a big impact on those summer pages?
I love to scrapbook in the season. That’s one reason why Christmas in July always stumps me. Knowing that summer is just around the corner, I realized I had not even completed stories from last July. What??? I know! Can you imagine being behind on telling your stories. LOL…oh dear me. I know you can relate.
Wanting to add to my 2020 Family Stories Insert I gathered these supplies to start the process:
* Storyline Chapters 12×12 Project Pad
* Storyline Chapters Journaler Sticker Book
* Storyline Chapters Stamps

When I realized I had summer stories still to tell, I wanted to add to those stories a big emphasis. With the help of a lot of TYPE inspiration found over on Pinterest, I was inspired to create a large titled page.
It was my answer to catching up on some last summer scrapbook pages, as well as having some fun on a page.
To create this page I could have cut the letters out on my Silhouette. But the lazy in me did not want to set the machine up and then set up the software…yeah…like I said…lazy.
Instead I just typed up large letters then printed them in a grey scale. After trimming them out I then used the letters as a pattern on the colored cardstock to create the large lettered title.
I find hand cutting paper pieces therapeutic and rhythmic anyway. This was actually an enjoyable process for me from beginning to end.
The 4×5 photo was adhered to the page first. Then I added on the SUMMER letters at the top and bottom just so they came off the page just a bit. Two other photos were added to the layout to help tell the story I had in mind.
You can see how layers of stickers and stamps clustered together supported the story told here. Ah. It was a great day. The page needed a great title.
That is just one way to add a large title, and SUMMER, to a Storyline Chapters Layout. This page was made fairly simply and straightforward. Not fancy at all. But fun with the large format letters.
Hope you are inspired to try the same and especially to tell your story.
