Default PKP002 Technique (01/17/18)

Challenge: create a title page
Keyword: Gallery at Splitcoaststampers, PKP, SBC18Jan
Hostess: Melissa (mollymoo951)


Welcome to the wonderful world of pocket pages! An introduction to the challenge can be found
Forums at Splitcoaststampers. <--click for details

It's a new year with a fresh book. Or maybe you need to finish last year’s book. How about a TITLE PAGE? Some say this is the easiest part of the book. I dunno. My page went together easy, but after YEARS of struggling to find a way to create a title page that pleasing to me. A page that made me smile.


So, Sunday I googled title pages to gather ideas. I made a sketch and jotted down notes of things I liked. I picked out papers. I picked out stamps. I knew I wanted to use large numbers to show the year. I thought maybe add a quote. I was even gonna say HELLO! I wasn’t planning to use photos. In the end, I picked some favorite photos from the year – I printed some in color and some in black and white. My 2017 Project Life title page is peek into 2017 that opens my 2017 Project Life album. How fun it will be to come across the same photos within the year’s pages and say – I know that photo! I love the CAS design and the color!

Some people choose late 2017 photos to open their 2018 book. I thought about it –but I just couldn’t - at least not for 2017. My method was to use that year’s photos – a mix of all year – to create that year’s title page.


Then, later that day, I decided to go ahead and do 2018. I sketched out the idea to make a B & W title page. And picked to favorite photos from December 2017. I haven't completed the page yet. Coming soon.


So, what method do you / will you decide to use?

There are many ways to create a title page. Google – it will likely take you to Pinterest. Find one or several somethings pleasing to your eye. Figure out what you like about that page. Then create something uniquely yours.

Some ideas:
-Say HELLO!
-Choose photos of your family – as a group and /or individually.
-Add letters or initials of your last name to a card or a photo.
-Create a non-photo title page with fun quotes and pretty patterned paper.

What other ideas can you think of?

Create your title page and come back, share with us in the gallery. Post a link to your project in this thread so we will be sure to see it! Copy and paste the keywords above when posting your project to the gallery.

Hmm, I'm doing a Chatbook for my 2018 book. Maybe I'll do a title page for my pages for your challenges!

Default Ring in the New Year with a Bird

Ring in the New Year with a Bird by Ozpom at Splitcoaststampers

Hi Melissa, here's my title page I created a couple of weeks ago for my Year in Review Album. As I've done mine and about to start on my other pocket pages to follow this, hoping I can post and share here.


TFL. Happy day everyone

ok...I have gone completely off the rails! LOLOL

This will be the January divider for my OLW album ...I added the black around the page so you can see it better. I am printing it on white without the border cause I want the stark contrast
