Pike Place Scrapbook Layout 24

I wanted to create a layout as colorful as Pike’s Place Market.

I sketched this layout idea in our hotel room that night.


Place extra photos onto Cricut mat, one at a time and cut letters at 2 1/2″H with the Base Camp Cartridge. (Plantin, Roly Poly would also work)You should be able to cut three letters from each 4×6 photo. Cut shadows for each letter in Black Cardstock. Mount onto White Cardstock 5″h x 12″w. Add Black scallop borders at the top and bottom edges and tape to page, 1″ from top.

Add 4″h photos to the page 1/2″h from the bottom edge. Wallet size 2 1/4″h photos are added to the top of the White cardstock on the second page and one on the first page right top edge. 
Embellish some of the extra spaces with flourish stamps and add a 2 1/4″h paper flower with a decorative brad as the final accent.
This technique would also work great with beach photos, Fall leaves and pumpkins. The sky is the limit. Enjoy.


What You’ll Need –

  • Cricut and Base Camp Cartridge
  • Doodle Bug Beetle Black Filagree Paper (or other patterned black paper)
  • Scallop Border (Accucut) or similair (like Fiskars “treading water”)
  • Black and White Cardstock
  • Flourish Stamps (unknown)
  • Black Ink
  • Gingham Paper Flower
  • Decorative Brad

    We live across the water from Seattle and the Market is a great place to come for a day. Nice use of extra photos which we all wind up with and wonder how to use them.

  • Nancy Smith

    Thanks everyone! I’m so glad you like my layout.
    Always happy to inspire others.
    Hopefully Megan will ask me to share more with you.

    That is a really neat idea to use extra photos for letters and I especially like it that you mentioned another cart that would work as often I don’t have the cart that wa used and I spend hours looking for that letter style or object in another cart that I have.

    I love that idea, and have the Plantin cartridge. I have been thinking of a title page for Vegas and I think I will use this idea, from some of the pics. I am not using.
    Love all your ideas and videos, keep them coming.

    I really enjoyed this LO, just because as a former WA resident, and having lived in Seattle during the 80’s and early 90’s brings back such happy memories!! I love PPM! IT was always the cool place to be during the day, and the clubs on 1st Ave or the Pier at night! Beautiful LO, thanks so much for sharing!

    Lisa 🙂

    We visited our nephew in Seattle several years ago
    and Pike’s Market. I thought it was a dream world. (I live in a tiny town of 3200..lol) I loved it and your layout really is amazing. I never thought of cutting the title from extra photos. How clever of you.
    Thanks for sharing the idea.
