Summer Scrapbooking, New Free Template, Scavenger Hunt, So Much FUN!

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Last week's blog was so amazing!  If you were one of the many that stopped here, thanks so much and we are thrilled you are back.  As awesome as last week's blog was, today's is equally as awesome.

The Cherry has made a home at Scrappy Sistersnew shop.  Don'cha just love that name?!  What a perfect fit!  My good friends Dana, Jodi, Dagi and I have been scrappy sister friends for years and have teamed up to open a scrap-a-licious shop.  What I probably love best is that all of our styles are very different, giving the shop a diverse appeal.  With us ladies collaborating, you can rest assured that things are going to get hop'n!  Come be part of something new and grow along with us at Scrappy Sisters.  See who else is making the shop their home, too!

Keep reading to find out more about the new shop, check out all of the fabulous freebies we have for you, today and of course load up that creative mojo and get scrappy this weekend.

We want to open with a celebration!  Dagi, Joslyn, Dana, Jodi and I have put together a sample of freebies and have hid them all around our shops. Peruse our individual shops and you'll find the freebies.
Keep reading to see what's new in our shop at Scrappy Sister and Kreative Design Studio.
I want to dedicate this blog to summer, things new and show off my love for scrapbooking and memory keeping.

I've selected all very outdoor, summer and spring inspired pages for you.  Above is Sizzling Summer Nights from Kim Cameron. She's going to be live at the Studio with a chat that you won't want to miss and a very cool freebie, too!
Our newest set of templates are great for spring and summer.  Document those Sunny Summer's, Feeling Fabulous times, Magical Moments and Loving Life.

Check out the beautiful pages the ladies have designed with Grow'n On Me and much more.

I love how Carol changed up the title for her passion for poesjes.  I figured I'd use the Dutch word for kitty.  Hehehe...

Now, BRACE YOURSELF!  Hehehe...I so, so love these next few pages, the awesome new templates AND Aimee Harrison Designs and Heartstrings Scrap Art's new collection, Cool By The Pool and Summer Readyfrom Aimee.
EEK!  This template was an absolute blast to play with.  I was going with just the circle outlines, but thought, "Nah!  That's to boring and not summery enough."  So, I added the flower shapes behind them.  Use them to show off papers and or pictures. I've mixed it up.
What a super match up of these templates and this collection.  This is a lot of FUN for one page.  I can't wait to see what you do with them.
This first one is Summer Ready from Aimee Harrison and our new templates, Sunny Summer.

Bryony from Heartstrings Scrap Art also designs fabulous templates.  Below, is her template from the collection, Cool By The Pool and the other goodies.  This album is going to be so awesome.  It was the best vacation ever.  It is essential it gets its very own album.

I had to giggle when I looked closely at the collection because many of the elements mirrored some templates I had already designed.  Great minds think alike!  I used Cool By The Pool and of the cool colors in it along with our other new templates, Sunny Summer sold ONLY at Scrappy Sisters.

The ladies have also been playing with the templates.  Here are some of their pages.

Here are some more new templates that can only be found at Scrappy Sisters and on sale.

I just love all of these pages using Amber Shaw's gorgeous goodies.  If you haven't heard, Amber, her husband and son died tragically in a house fire.  There is a Go Fund Meaccount that you can donate to.  She has remaining family and besides losing precious lives, they've lost everything else.  You can help them by donating and in return for your donation of $20, the Sweet Shoppe and a few other shops, will send you an Amber inspired collection.

Here is the other new set of templatesfound only in Scrappy Sister and on sale.  I love the big titles and all of these spots for pics.  Of course they are easily changed up.  That second one would also look great with just one large photo either in the background or framed as would the last one.

The ladies made some really cute pages.

Above, Tanja used a brilliant kit from Made By Keuntje, Happy Garden.  I'm totally using it for these templates.  See more with this fab collection further down.
This weekend we will be celebrating Dad.  Our Rad Dad templates are also in the Scrappy Sisters shop where the entire shop is discounted at 30% off until the 17th of June.

Wild and Free is available at Daisies and Dimples.  I used this kit from Kim Cameron for my page, below celebrating Dad.

More pages and goodies dedicated to summer come in the format our new travel add on pack. It's just 1.99 and has some very traditional vacation/travel goodies to make perfect pages or albums from a recent or past trip.  I used it for your free calendar for June as well as a page using Throwing Some Scraps Around new, really awesome templates.

These templates will make your pages so beautiful and easy, too.  I love this paper I designed.  You'll find it in your travel pack and don't forget, it coordinates perfectly with our Au Naturelkit, where you can find matching flowers, greenery and the other traditional scrapbooking goodies.

Here are Jodi's beautiful templates.

Dana from Made By Keuntjealso has new templates in the shop and at a really good price, too.  You get both packs for just $5!  I've played.  Check out my pages.
I'm working my bootie off everyday this week to get our garden in Germany back in order.  I sure do feel like I have to keep starting over!  Our Yucca plant went mad this spring.  Just look at those flowers.  I used a lot of Dana's natural elements in Happy Gardenfor my page above and I love the result.  Below, are my favorite kind of roses.  I just love that color/s.

The templates are really cute and versatile as well.   Scrap up your beautiful garden or outdoor pics with them.
Last week we gave you this free templateand we had so many visitors.  Yay!  I hope you like our templates and that you'll visit our shopand look at the others.  This template is still available as are the other designers.  Click on the image to get to that blog.

Templates are our passion.  They make scrapbooking so much easier and faster.  They are also great for beginners.  Following a good template will teach you the aesthetic of page layout.  Learn balance, placement and what kind of element to use where.  Templates are also great when you are running low on the mojo.  Not even sure where to start?  Grab a template and go from there.
Below is another example of a free template from The Cherry.  It went out in last week's newsletter and today, readers got another free template.  Be sure to sign up for our newsletters to keep up with our new products, get the mega freebies from us and other designers in DigiLand and to stay in touch with happenings that will make you happy.

The kit Cart has a new kit out this week, Smile.  It is beyond cute!  I used a free template from Marie H (you can find on that link I gave for last week's blog hop).  The fairies in this kit are so, so cute, but I just couldn't get them to look right with my ruckus boys.  A bit too much contradiction, I'm afraid.  Hehehe...I did HAVE to use them so...

I designed a fun quick page and Jamie has it for FREE in her scrap group.  I mentioned in my newsletter that I had a fairy cute freebie on today's blog.  Wouldn't you agree?

As usual, I have really packed this one full!  Thank you so, so much for sticking through it all and a big shout out to all of you who are in our group.  I really appreciate your participation and getting to know you and see your beautiful pages.  If your not a part of it, let's change that!

Happy scrapping!
