Love For Layout Templates Train, More Free Cuttables, $2 Templates, Page Inspiration and So Much More

Howdy Hoppers and welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Today, I've got everything you are looking for.  Digital scrapbooking goodness, cuttable cuteness,  amazing digital deals, tips and tricks for your pages, fabulous layout inspiration and to sweeten the deal, I'm sprinkling freebies throughout the blog.  Blogger's new version is full of bugs and half of the content of this blog has disappeared, including links.  If it looks wonky again and the links have vanished yet again, my apologies.

First, we've got your free template.  My gal Melissa has provided us with SVG and Studio format so all kinds of scrappers can enjoy today's template.  

(My apologies for the ugly link, but the links are not working the traditional way for some reason.)

Here is how it scraps up traditionally with use of the cutting files.  Big thanks to Audry!

If you're new to The Cherry, I italicize the tips so they are easy to find.

Tip:  Get that dimension through double sided foam tape or my favorite, huge, thick glue dots.  Digitally, we achieve dimension through the use of shadows.

Here's my page with the free template AND a free collection that will be available next week.  Stay tuned!

You can do so many things with the free template.  

I added a little more detail for my surfboard.  Keep scrolling through and see what the other scrappy sisters have done.

I'll be hosting a hop around to our social spots around DigiLand.  You'll get papers at one spot, ellies at another, an alphabet at yet another spot and these fun journal cards will be free, too.  Come on back next week for all of the details.

Free Next Week!

Neverland Scraps is where ya might have just come from and Kim's Creations is where you'll go next.  If ya get lost pop over to our group on Facebook for the list and drop your pages there, too.

Let's take a look at some more pages to get ideas on how you can scrap up your new, free template.

Theresa kept her page basic and used colors that flow together well, but yet a touch of excitement with that yellowy green.  Note the date on the surfboard, too.

Heart Made Scrapbook

Felicity merged a few squares together to get that divided look on her page.  

A Mix of Goodies.

I'm totally digging the ombre paper on the cuttable layer.

Antebellum Press

Connie Prince
Tip:  Even though that top layer is all merged you can still go in and move your papers around so they only "cover" part of that layer by clipping.

Digging this extraction through the mask!

Next Week's Freebie

I like how Kathy got this little cutie right in her surfboard.  Just move your pic to the correct layer you want to cover or clip over.

Disney Inspired Page Inspiration, Templates and New Freebies

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

After much speculation, I finally decided to design some adventurous templates with a special mouse in mind.  In typical Cherry fashion, I've got plenty of page inspiration to get the wheels turning, tips and I've got a coordinating freebie for you as well.

I scoured the GingerScraps shop for some kits that would go nicely with these templates.  Keep reading to see what might pair up with these magical templates.  To make it easier for you, I've linked up the kits from the GingerScraps Shop.

Here are a few more pages using a collaboration of Miss Fish and Shepherd Studio, Magical Kingdom.  You can see this match up is a real hit, too!  I have really fun pages from our team.  

Tip: Maybe you've always dreamed of going to an adventure park like this?  That would also make a great page.  Add some journaling and maybe even design a page as a wish list.

Cindy got really creative with her photo.  She simply took a photo of a Mickey trinket at her window!  How clever, right?!  Now that is what I call outside of the box thinking.

Magical Scraps Galore also has a fantastic collection that will go perfectly with Magical Adventures and that is Mr. Mouse and Co.

Again we have some outside of the box thinkers with Roxanna's fun page.  Wouldn't you just love to have a phone like that?!  These colors match splendidly, too.

Caro used Club House from Connie Prince for her page, below.  So fun!

Here's another kit that would go well.

Michal mixed it up a bit and added some word art from a Heartstrings Scrap Art template and goodies from a kit from JumpStart Designs.  It appears my paint was a great success.  Most of the team kept it.  Tip:  I often use my paints from templates for my pages.  I look up the png files under, "tcot paint".  You could also make a folder, label it "paint" and put our pngs from our template in there.  I should totally do this to save time.  Hehehe...Just remember you can only use it for your personal use pages.

Theresa's page has nothing to do with Disney and it's rather extraordinary!  Think outside of the theme when it comes to templates and collections.

See what just a little bit of fairy dust and some coordinating colors can do?!  Tip:  Matching the colors of the kit and pictures gives a wonderfully cohesive look to your pages.

Tip: Make your pages extra magical with some gold, styles, twinkles and stars like Theresa did.

A kit like Maggies would go really great with our templates, too. Tip:  Scrapping your little princess would be a great idea with these templates.

Here are a few more pages with our templates, kits from other shops and some off theme ideas.

Sweet Shoppe Goodies

More goodies from the Sweet Shoppe.

Designs from Butterfly Designs

And a mix of fun goodies.
