Let's Talk Tuesday: Combining Fonts to Create Eye Catching Titles

{If you're looking for the Hip Kit/Elle's Studio blog hop and giveaway, you can find it HERE)
Combining fonts to create bold, eye catching titles is one of my favorite techniques. I use it all.the.time. I have a secret recipe for perfect font combinations:
  1. Use a script font (one that looks kind of like cursive handwriting) combined with a block font.
  2. One font must be thicker and bolder than the other one. I usually use the script font as the thinner font and the block font as the bolder one.
Let me show you what I mean. This Turkey Dinner layout is a perfect example.
The "turkey" part of the title is created with a chipboard alphabet from Bella Blvd and the "dinner" portion of the title is cut from dark brown cardstock using my Silhouette Machine.

Here's an example of a premade die 0cut title that uses the same guidelines that I adhere to. Gotta Love This
This diecut is from Kerri Bradford Studios. Notice that the "gotta" portion of the title is in script and the "love this" portion of the title is a block font.

The last example I have for you today is the title of a mini album I created for American Crafts (there's a tutorial with this album too, you can find that HERE)

Do you have a secret (or not so secret) plan for combining fonts? I'd love to hear your method.
