Free Cricut Scrapbook Layout Templates

Scrapbooking is super easy and fun with a Cricut cutting machine and these free Cricut scrapbook layouts.

I used to collect stickers when I was a kid. It was kind of like scrapbooking in a way because I would layout the sticks similar to how you would keep a scrapbook. These days, I do more shadow box making rather than scrapbooking but regardless, the methods and materials are very similar.

I’ll show you below how to make various cutout and scrapbook and shadow box templates using Cricut Design Space below. But first, I have a few recommendations for scrapbooking materials.

Materials for Cricut Scrapbooking

Cardstock – I like to use medium weight cardstock for paper projects with my Cricut. I try to use the cardstock with colored cores when possible. Otherwise, it frays easily and doesn’t make as clean of a cut. Here are some of my favorite brands:

Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut. Check out my recommendations for Cricut machines and accessories for beginners for more info.

Templates – All of the ribbon banner SVG, pennant banner SVG, flag banner SVG, curved banner SVG along with the frame scrapbook svg templates are all free and available in both SVG and printable formats in my resource library.

Cricut Picture Frame Ideas in Design Space

Scrapbooking with the Cricut cutting machine is super easy. It just takes a few basic features already available in Cricut Design Space to mix and match templates.

Cricut Scrapbook Ideas

The first task here is to make a basic customized layout page with cut out frames for photos. To do this, start by using the shapes tool in Cricut Design Space canvas to make a basic square.

Then resize the square to the size you want for you scrapbook page.

Next, we are going to cutout the windows for the photos. You can do basic shape cutouts with the shapes available in the shapes tool. I’ve also uploaded my free frames SVG templates.

From here, I simply drag the cutout window shape onto the base page rectangle. After adding a couple of windows, I select all 3 shapes and attach them.

How to cut out Ribbon SVG and other Banner SVG templates for scrapbooking with the Cricut

Another way the Cricut is great for scrapbooking is how fast and easy it is to cut out various banners and shapes to accessorize your scrapbook page.

Unless the design is super intricate, I like to use a fresh blue mat for most cardstock cutting. I find the light grip mat to be just the right amount of stickiness to hold the paper in place but still easy enough for clean up.

If you have a lot of scraps to clean up after a cut, I recommend getting a lint roller to roll up the pieces. Making tape also works in this case.

If you are using non-colored core cardstock, it tends to be texturized on the surface. For cutting this type of cardstock, you will need to use a standard grip green mat because it needs more grip. You will need to pick off the scraps with tweezers for clean up afterward.

I don’t go super fancy with my cutouts on top of my base frame. A few ribbons and curved banners are enough.

I actually like a single cutout frame for some pages, especially if it is a page for a shadow box.
