Love For Layout Templates Blog Train, Valentines Exploding Box Card and Other Fantastic Scrapbooking Inspiration

Welcome to The Cherry On Top, Crafters!

Today, I'm showing off a bit of the newest designs I've put in Plus at Design Bundles.  I've got a little bit of page inspiration.  There's a sneak peak and new goodies from Clever Monkey Graphics and of course...your free template from the blog train as well as a freebie from the last blog.

Come on and dive right in with me!

SURPRISE!  I've asked Ginger to open my shop.  It really bothered me having thousands of links that didn't go anywhere.  Though I won't be adding more new templates at this time, you can totally go in and purchase my templates there, again. Isn't that awesome?!  All of the moo-lah will go to GingerScraps.

So, yes!  I'm getting glue on my fingers, again.  I've been wanting to design an exploding box card for years and this time, it all fell right into place.  Whoo hoo!  The people at Design Bundles loved it so much, they sent me an e-mail.  Wow!  Needless to say, I've a very long list of more similar projects like this one as well as mini album ideas that all can be done hybrid style.

If you pop over to the product description at Design Bundles Plus, you'll see an entire tutorial of how to easily put this baby together.  Seriously, you can have this entire project done in under 30 minutes and it is SO cute. 

There are endless ways to change it up.  I used goodies from my Valentine Collection at Plus.  It coordinates magically.

First, I designed an entire collection for cats and now we are on to dogs.  What pet series would you like next?  I'm thinking chickens.  Y'all know, I just love my girls.  Here are just a few of the items.  There are even more in Plus.

Theresa scrapped it up wonderfully.

I'm having so much fun designing paper packs for Plus.  I've got three new ones this week and these are from last week.

Above is a more whimsical set of papers.  Whilst below, is more artistic.  I hope I've included your doggy somewhere in this series.

I Love my Dog Papers 1

I thought this time of year is a great time to show our appreciation to our healthcare workers.  I designed a paper pack as well as some really cute word art.

See how easy it is to scrap with just the papers and word art?!

I'm still designing templates and though it was going slow, the pace is picking up and more and more people are getting my templates.  Yay!  A big shout of thanks if you have been a part of that.

Layered Squares Templates and a gorgeous collaboration with Key Lime Digi Design.

Split Image Template and a gorgeous template at our place on the Mosel River in Germany.

Here's another attempt at a template/light box.  Theresa made a few lovely pages.  The light box does not have the photo layer, obviously.

More scrap-a-licious hands on scrapping is waiting for you.  Since my Baby Boy Collection sold more than the Baby Girl Collection, I did the baby boy mini scrapbook first.  Next week, the girl version will be in.  Y'all won't believe how insanely easy this thing is to put together.

Here's a look at my new paper pack, Hearts Patterns.  A little intense.  A little playful and a touch dramatic.  Sound familiar?

Farmhouse Valentine from Clever Monkey Graphics matched perfectly and it is such a cute collection.

Speaking of Clever Monkey Graphics.  Tracey has a new kit out this week.  I scrapped it up with an upcoming template idea I'm putting in Plus next week.  Can ya guess the theme?

Nothing like a little bevel and some great shadows to lift your page.

Here's last week's freebie.

Here's your free template, hoppers.  Thanks so much for stopping by The Cherry.  Feel free and scroll back through hundreds, that's right!  Hundreds of freebies on the blog. This blog has been around for nearly 10 years and I try to leave my freebies for as long as I can.  So enjoy and come on back for more inspiration.

I was super late with my page and I'm the last stop.  Pop over to our group to show off your work and get a list for more stops if you need.

I apologize for leaving such a simple template.  I think it is super versatile.  Shrink it down and make a super cute frame if you like.  It'll also make a wonderful card.  It's my birthday next week.  The big 50!  We all had Covid back in November and though my symptoms were not bad at all, it sucked away all of my strength and stamina and now I've got some other illness.  To think I wasn't sick for years! I'm super pooped!  Thanks for putting up with all of my crap!  Hehehe...

I hope you stay healthy and that you'll join our group for more scrap-a-licious shenanigans.
