New Templates, Halloween Inspiration and More

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We've got new templates in the shop, pages and pages of inspiration and of course, some links to some freebies.  There are all kinds of new collections in and around DigiLand as well as contests at the Digital Scrapbooking Studio that might interest you.  I've also got a new video uploaded.  Keep reading to find out more.

Get your mojo in high gear after checking out the blog and get scrapping!

 Hallo-What templates

Our newest set of 4 templates are pretty awesome when it comes to versatility.  If you're really not into the ghoulish festivities, ditch the themed ellies and put in your very own.  We've got several pages here without the Halloween theme and they look smashing.

Hallo-What Templates and Happy Halloween from Paty Greif

Isn't that page so much fun?!  Paty is just great at whimsical design.  The borders along the side are bringing those layers to your attention, adding volume and depth to the page.

Hallo-What Templates and Marie H Superstitious

Above is Marie's page using her revamped kit, Superstitious.  How unique?   My mom is so superstitious.   I never even heard of half the stuff she talks about and despite all of the rolling of the cabbage, she still hasn't been swimming in it.  Hehehe...

 Lisa was casting spells on her pages, too.  Above and below are her designs with the new templates.

Marina's page is so much fun.  Check out the grizzly look on the boy's face!  Ha!  Then the hammy, cheeky little girl.  Hehehe...Just love fun photos like these.  What better reason to scrap?

Hallo-What Templates and Amber Shaw's Halloween Party

What a splendid fall background in this page.  Shelly really kept to the template.  Keeping it nice and simple and using everything as is.  That kind of scrapping makes your pages go along much faster and you still get great results.

On to other new goods around DigiLand.  Like this amazing collection from the Digital Scrapbooking Studio.  I got to work with several different designers kits.  The first one is from my gal Aimee Harrison.  I paired it up with Lissy Kay Designs new templates, The One.  Loving all of these luscious layers.

The One from Lissy Kay Designs and The Highlands from Aimee Harrison Designs

This here page is from Butterfly Design.  She had so many splendid goodies in her part.  I could hardly decide which ones to use.  Hehehe...

This page is SO special to me.  That's me with my sister-in-law and my bro with my hubs.  I haven't seem them in 15 years!  They finally took a visit to Europe from Florida.  Good thing it was nice and hot when they got here, though not Florida hot.

Kim Cameron's Highland Romance is this fab kit I used along with my Circlicious Templates.

Even more new goodies are waiting for you!

Just look at all of this water colour gorgeousness! That's me and the hubs all dolled up with babysitter waiting for us to leave.  First time in 12 years, folks.  We had a great time at a friend's wedding.

Jodi from Throwing Some Scraps Around has out done herself, yet again.

 Celebrate Our Love

How about some more newer and new designs from your favourite digi shops?

How is that for something completely different?  Art journal style definitely isn't a regular part of my repertoire, but ya have to give it a go now and then, right?  The Urban Fairy certainly is an awesome designer for this style, too.

MagsGraphics also has a new collection out, Wicked Adventures.  Can you guess the theme by the name and my page?  Hmmm...It actually is a Somewhere Over the Rainbow theme, but I really wanted to scrap this beautiful pic and needed a kit with a lot of green and yellow.  Perfect!  I paired it up with Dagi's Temptation's, Scrap-Tastic templates.

 Wicked Adventure

Let's stick with different for the next two pages.  The Digital Scrapbooking Studio is having all kinds of contests this month as well as their challenges where you can find great freebies and play along.  The Next Designer and Layout Artist contest are live in the forum and I'm playing along.  Speaking of playing along, there is a place to do just that.  You'll get the same challenges we do only you're not a part of the competition.  How fun is that?

Of course there is a perk to doing the contest, like free kits and prizes.  This is my first challenge in the traditional competition.

 Fall Fresh

I've also decided to do the Artistic Style category.  I need a push to do this style and this is a great way to do just that.  How about a fabulous mini from The Urban Fairy, Blue Skies?  Isn't it a great back drop for these lovely photos of my friend's beautiful girls?

 Blue Skies

Have you played with our free template from Friday yet?  If so, pop over to the group and find the status with the preview of the free template from the Love For Layout train and add your page in the comment.  The page with the most likes will receive an item of their choice from my shop at Kreative Design Studio.  We'll see how many entires there are by Monday.

 Free Template from The Cherry On Top

I got this free template playing along with Kim Cameron's annual Zombie Run.  Join us over in her group if you haven't yet.  I've still got a free template there and you can get the next challenge pack.

 Free Template from Kim Cameron

This will be the freebie on tomorrow's, Hybrid Saturday blog.  Download, print, cut, consider laminating and mark your favourite book.  I'm actually in the middle of the second book of Highlander.  This marker will be perfect!  Gift idea?  Tag? Border for a pretty page?  So many things you  can do with it, right?!

FREE book marker printable on TOMORROW's blog.

I've been uploading videos to my You Tube channel.  I just put one up Wednesday where I scrap the free template I designed for Kim's group.  Check it out along with a few others.  Process videos and quick tips in PSE along witha  few older videos for paper craft.  I'll be adding traditional scrap videos eventually, too.

Thanks so much for checking out The Cherry, today!  We'll see ya tomorrow.

Happy scrapping!
