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.
