Free Scrapbooking Word Art, A Collection Of Celebration, A Sale and Inspiration

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We've returned with a reminder of our 50% off sale that is going on now in the Kreative Design Studio, our extensive new digital scrapbooking collection, A Reason To Celebrate, inspiration, designs from other shops and some pretty fabulous freebies.

Dive on in to some serious scrap-a-liscious!

 Kreative Design Studio

 A Reason To Celebrate

And there you have it!  All of our packs for the new collection, A Reason To Celebrate.  A party pack to help you document parties, proms, dances, festive gatherings, posh evenings out...

The wedding pack has all of the essentials you'll need to scrap that extra special day. Our store description has lists of exactly what you get. 

The paper pack contains a half dozen of wedding specific papers but the other 30 or so are great for any occasion.  I couldn't even get all of the papers on this preview.

There are 12 different templates that will make album design a snap!  

The cluster frames and graphics pack make scrapbooking, card, so fast.  You'll have gorgeous pages in no time at all when you use them.  

The journal cards can be used for so many different things.  Mini albums, Project Life pages, loosely in your pages.  For a souvenir at the wedding itself...Here's my blog on how to make a mini album from journal cards.  Click here for yet another project idea using journal cards.

 A Reason To Celebrate template pack 1

This is my page using a template from the first pack and the collection.  It's also another attempt at me designing a patterned paper.  I love the black and gold together and Manu's awesome Commercial Use chandeliers.

 More Project Simple

I got to thinking, "Wow! I sure do have a lot of pictures to scrap and don't want to go broke printing out 100 pages."  So, I went shopping in my own shop to find templates where I can use multiple photos and found my Project Simple and More Project Simple packs.  (Some of our most popular templates.). They scrap unbelievably quick.  I feel guilty when I spend so little time on a page.  Hehehe...

More of my pages with More Project Simple and A Reason To Celebrate.  The lovely girly bridal party.

 Love Always Templates

The collection and a template from Love Always.

Y'all!  This was another page where I felt absolutely guilty with how fast it scrapped.  I used a template from the second pack and seriously just switched and changed a couple of elements, really.  Then added my pics.  So darn easy!

 Colorful Templates

Here are our newest templates in the shop that might be in your cart.

 Cute Cuttable Templates

I had a fantastic opportunity to host a get together at my home in Germany with some incredibly wonderful scrappy sisters and I scrapped this special event with a new collection from JB Studio and Made By Keuntje.

Do you recognize any of the other designers or me?!

 Free Your Soul

I get a lot of crap from my friends, family and fellow designers about all of the free stuff I give away, but I just can't help myself.  I've never been a wealthy person.  I've been homeless, starving, started work at 13 and life has been nearly impossible financially, most of the time.  It still ain't easy at all, but I'm just a giving kind of person and I know if it weren't for the free stuff, I would have never started digital scrapbooking.  (Use this link to find out how to start digital scrapbooking for free.)So in a way, I'm giving back.

I got such a great reaction from the fans in the group who participated in the choose the next freebie that I wanted to give an extra special token of my appreciation for that participation.  It's what makes the group so much fun to be a part of.  If you're not a part of the family yet, be sure to join us.  Don't be afraid to ask questions.  We love to help and along with my scrappy sisters we always have answers.  I and a few others, share freebies everyday, too.  You may show off any creative project in the group.  It just has to be family friendly.

 Free Word Art

Enjoy this extra special freebie from the bottom of my heart and as always, happy scrapping!

Colorful Digital Scrapbooking Templates, Inspiration, New Freebie and A Store Wide Sale

 Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I'm so amazed at how different the weather is between Germany and Belgium.  We live only 3 hours from our vacation home in Germany, when traffic is good (which it rarely is when one must driveth through Brussels).  It's been stormy, rainy and cool in Belgium all spring really.  While in Germany someone put the sun on high and blew all of the rain clouds away!  I nearly killed myself mowing the lawn at 10 am!  Hehehe...It was SO hot!  I hope the weather is fair and fine wherever you are and that you'll enjoy the blog we've got for you, today.

New templates have hit the Kreative Design Studio.  I've pages from myself and team as well as store wide sale and a new freebie that our fans chose.  I hope you were one of them to choose.

These templates started off as a page I made for a Creative eTeam requirement for Aimee Harrison only the collection has not yet released.  I did swipe Aimee's color palette for them and meant for them to coordinate with her collection.  I run most of my templates by scrappy sister, Tammy who pushed me to up the release date.  Hehehe...So my page that started the whole thing is in the wings waiting it's collections release.  I did make two others.  Check them out.

I wanted to stick with the color fun in the templates and remembered some kind of butterfly inspired kit from Amber Shaw that I didn't use yet.  Any time I scrap with her goodies I'm reminded of just how precious life is.  It's so, so unfortunately to have lost such a shining star.  However, I'm always reminded of her when I see all of her files in my computer.

I just had to try and get one of these templates to go with my niece's album, which I've decided to just take my time on designing.  The collection, A Reason To Celebrate is all finished and ready for the shops.  It's SO huge! I've got THREE packs of coordinating templates, graphics, journal cards, cluster frames, frame clusters, NINE packs of elements (I know, right?!) and 5 folders of papers.  Shoo wee!

It will all be in the shop for the beginning of next month.

Look for the free mini in the next newsletter.  I'm in Germany where my connection isn't great and the coordinating templates are huge.  As long as I'm here, for the summer, I'll have to send links for them after purchase. I do check my e-mail everyday and will be on the look out to bring them to you as quickly as possible.

Cute Cuttables Digital Scrapbooking Templates, Freebies, Page Inspiration...

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Things are heating up around here, literally.  Finally!  Spring was more like winter and then all of the sudden, BOOM!  Hit with an incredible heat where we can get to the gardening, work on that tan and strap on the sandals.  Boy, how hot it is.  Now, it's tough to keep cool.  Hehehe...Stepping out of the heat and behind the computer to try and chill.

I'm currently at our place in Germany.  Jogging the steep mountains and enjoying the gorgeous nature.  Slow internet comes with the mountains.  Hence, my time away from the computer.  Believe me, I'm working it.  My niece was married and I'm designing her album with an extensive collection that I hope you'll love.  I've also got several packs of templates on tap and we are keeping up with the challenges in the group, too.

I've got some new templates in the shop, a couple of fabulous freebies from me and other designers as well as other Digi Scrap news.

 Cute Cuttables

These templates will work great in your cutting machines that use a png format.  I've included the fancy "Y" in one, extra png all on one layer just in case you could use it that way as well.

I played with two of the templates and I've got a few other pages from my fabulous team.

You're getting a look at my Reason To Celebrate Collection, above.  That's my beautiful niece and her husband, recently married and the reason I designed this extensive collection.  It'll be in the shop very soon.

 Cute Cuttable

I used a River Rose kit, J is for Joy.  I love the color palette and my silly boy.  You can delete the shapes that might not fit on your page and copy/paste the other shapes in their place.

Here are some pages from my fabulous team.

You can totally change up the wording on this template.  Check out how I did it with the first page.  Looks like Theresa used some nifty style on her Y.

I thought I'd show off my pages from last week.  The designs from some of my favorite designers are something you might be looking for and they have coordinating freebies that might you like as well.


Do ya recognize the templates?  It's my Fur Family templates.  You will also find templates from Dagi in the collection, Meow-Ments in Gingerscraps.

Dana designed a fun, coordinating freebie to go with the collection.


Also found at GingerScraps is Aimee Harrison's newest collection, Midnight Serenade.  I played with both the light and dark side of it.

 Midnight Serenade

Yes!  This is an older picture of my husband.  Hehehe...So much hair, right?! Check out that glass.  Did you know that with each Belgian beer and there are well over 500 different kinds, that each one comes with it's own glass?  The glass helps enhance the flavor.  Look how unique this particular one is.  Belgium is certainly a great place to visit if you are a fan of delicious brew.

 Midnight Serenade

What I like about this page, besides the awesome background is the not so perfect picture.  In the beginning, I only scrapped "good" pictures.  Now, I scrap nearly all of my snaps.  I find that months or years later, I love them all the same.  JJ often has interesting expressions or perhaps, it's the lack of expression that intrigues me?

Aimee has an awesome coordinating freebie on her blog.

My hubs and I have always playfully argued over which baby was the cutest.  How can you not choose this chubby face?!  Hehehe...This is our youngest, JJ.  He was a toe sucker and that spider bite stayed on his face for a year.  I had one on the inside my thigh for a year as well.  Thank goodness we moved out of that place.  Haven't had one since.

Isn't the goodies for this page so adorable?  You know, I just love my boy themed kits and this is LouCee Creations newest, Snips & Snails.  You can also find this kit at Gingerscraps.

 At The Beach

What an opportunity I had!  Working with Kaye's beautiful kit, At The Beach.  Totally unique items and beautiful papers.  She's also in Etsy.  Designs By Savi has such beautiful products in her shop.

Not enough free stuff for ya yet?  Needing another challenge to get your scrappy mojo going?  We've got another new, free template in the group under the June Challenge.

 Free Template

Here is a free cuttable file.  It's just ONE layer in png format.  To get the multiple layers, you'll have to get the templates.  You'll still be able to put a background behind the letter to give it contrast.

 Free Cuttable

My gal Barb is back in business.  Check out her new kit and freebie on her blog.


Thanks so much for stopping by The Cherry.  I hope to see ya in our group.  We love to see what you're up to.

Happy scrapping!
