Yellow Page Titles for Scrapbook Pages

Yellow is the perfect color for summer-warm, bright and full of energy. Whether you're scrapbooking pages about trips to the beach, the campground, or the park, chances are good that a color scheme that includes yellow will be a great choice. Try using yellow for a page title-here are three examples to inspire you.

Never Too Old for Summertime by Autumn Baldwin. Digital supplies: Software: Adobe; Word overlay and date brushes: Katie Pertiet; Flower and border: Leora Sanford; Fonts: Century Gothic and You Are Loved.

Color tip: Use a lighter and darker shade of the same color together. Autumn Baldwin's bright yellow page title has just the right amount of pop against the light yellow background of her page.
