I love digital scrapbook alphas but sometimes I want a quicker way to make a title on my page. On the page below I have two titles. Today I'm going to show you how I made the cloisonne title. I'll show you how I made the lunch title in a later blog post.
Just a note: I'm working in Photoshop CS3. I believe most of the things I'm doing here are achievable in photoshop elements.

Step 2: Put a digital paper on top of your text layer and clip it to your title. Ctrl+alt+G for Photoshop and Ctrl+G for Elements.
Step 3: Go to your your layer palette and double click on your text layer. Your layer style box should pop up. From there you can play with your shadow and inner shadow settings.
These are the settings I used for my title:
|My Drop Shadow - Pretty much a normal shadow.|
|The Inner Shadow - Make sure you play with the blend mode. I chose Hard Mix for this particular title.|
There's another way I like to use as well and it's by adding a stroke. You can see it how I did it on the title below.

|Here are my stroke settings.|
These are some of my favorite ways to make my own custom titles. I also like to apply styles to my text but I'll save that tutorial for another day. Hope this helps adding a title to your page a little bit easier.
