February Coordinating Freebies

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Staying very busy here.  We thought we'd share our latest, Facebook freebies here with our blog readers.  We know not everyone is hanging on Facebook and we like to see that our freebies are made available to as many people as we can.  As much as we'd love to see you visit our Facebook Page or Pinterest, we'll keep you up to do date and make sure you can download from here as well.

We decided to stick with a colour palette for our free planner inserts and it's based on the paper collection we are using from Echo Park, For The Record 2 Tailored.  The colours are scrumptiously bright, vibrant, fun and very versatile.

To get a look at our custom made planner with tutorial, click here.  You can also find the link for the free January inserts there.  You can download the calendar inserts as well as some fun stickers that you can use any time for any project or just for fun.

Keep scrolling to the bottom to get February's calendar.


If you just love hybrid and paper craft, take a look at one of our newest, free templates.


 All you have to do is right click and save these cute cards to your downloads.  It is a png version, so you can use them digitally as you like.  The coordinate perfectly with February's calendar.

Here is our heart shaped basket.  Made in time for the upcoming holiday or for any occasion.

Isn't it just darling?

Download, print, cut, glue and you're ready. It's made so simply.

Depending on what you want to hold in it, choose your weight of paper.
I always pre fold my projects a bit before gluing.

This is where you glue.  On those tabs, on the red side.

You may have to slide those tabs a bit before you get it right where you want it.  So glue would work better than double sided tape.

Next think about your handles you want.  I'm showing you two different kinds.

The easiest and fastest way to go is just a strip of coordinating paper.  I like to use scraps from my stash. This way you have colour on both sides.  Cut the strip to the length you find suitable, glue both ends and adhere to the inside of your basket.

I really liked my second idea, here.  Keep reading to see how I did it.

I used my nifty, handy circular cutting tool.  If you don't have one, just trace around something around the size you need.  I put my shape templates over the purse to see how big I needed the straps.

Then make another circle, slightly smaller in the inside of your first, larger circle.

Then cut your double circle in half.  I just folded it in half and then cut along the fold.

Voila!  There are your new handles.

Glue them to the inside of your purse or basket.  Look at all of that room in there!  You can put so many in things in here.

One of our scrappy fans put fudge in hers.  I used mine for a mani/pedi kit.

Here is the printout. Right click to download. You can grab it on our Facebook Page as well.  We post several freebies ever single day over there as well as yummy, simple and fast recipes, patterns, crafty projects, inspiring quotes and always something to tickle your funny bone.  You'll love it there so be sure to join us!

Here's February's calendar.  Just right click and save to your downloads.

You are totally up to date with our newest freebies both here and on Facebook.  We hope you enjoy them.  Remember that all of our free stuff is for PERSONAL USE ONLY.  Our goodies are not to be resold or claimed as your own.

If you do download our freebies gives us a shout so we know someone is listening and we'll keep coming back with more.

Happy scrapping!
