Watercolor Sunflowers and Bees Digital Scrapbooking Bundle Page Layout Inspiration, A Garden Freebie and Super Cute Rainbow Unicorn Customizable Stickers

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Have ya heard the good news? I'm selling designs at GingerScraps, again. My shop in Design Bundles is still open, too. So, you have choices.

I'm showing off my newest bundle that is exclusively at GingerScraps. There are some Personal Use items in the collection. So, I can't put it in Design Bundles.

You are going to love the toasty warm summer colors of this digital scrapbooking kit. Use the elements and papers for scrapbook pages, cards, stickers, tags, posters...Digital scrapbooking elements and papers are great for a lot more things than scrapbooking.

Grab the bundle from GingerScraps While it is on Sale

A close up of the papers. Going a bit old school with the large designs.

Here's a close up of the templates.

Let's see what the scrap-a-licious team has been up to. Shall we?

sunflower scrapbook elements

Above Evie, has given those cute honey combs a shadow that creates a lot of depth. Whilst below, MarieJo left the shadow subtle and intense. Above it looks like it's floating and below a realistic paper layer. Both shadows gives the template a totally different effect. Donch'a just love that?

Speaking of subtle. Take a look at Kait's take on the template. Although the layers are merged, you still have a lot options. She went with the outline of the sunflowers which give a really neat cuttable look.

The last two pages, the ladies replaced my positioning of the flowers on the templates with their own flowers. What a cool idea?

Ya don't always have to "scrap" pictures. A page like Eva's would make a great album cover or title page. It would make a nifty card when scaled down or a work of art that you could frame and set on the buffet.

How awesome was it that Evie gave her flowers a more whimsical look? These flowers would make good mums, daisies...

She used our Revel in Retro kit at GingerScraps and matched it all up just perfect.

MarieJo replaced the positioning of the flowers from the template and made this lovely, pastel page. Isn't it just gorgeous?!

I can't help it! I STILL like large design paper. What can I say? I'm an 80's lady! How easy is it to scrap with large design papers? Theresa simply placed and framed her photo to fit right in the middle of the page, added some journaling and a lovely simple cluster. You can scrap in minutes with this collection thanks to the large design papers and big cluster elements.

Kait used my Perspective templates for her page, below. I think it came out fantastic! (I see the price for the templates are still the old prices. Better jump on that before I do!)

And now... for something completely different! Hehehe...I love Monty Python!

rainbow unicorn stickers
Check this link and this one for the fun goodies I got from Plus.

I found these absolutely darling designs and just had to make something magical with them. I really, really wanted to try and appeal to a large crowd. I know unicorns are popular and these little cuties were screaming, "color me BOLD". I amped up the colors, changed out the gold glitter, added a few more fun doodles, added texture, bevels, gold stars, text and left some spaces for monograms and or a place to write or type in a name or cheery sentiment.

Make pretty framed art with your kid's name and put it on their dresser or hang it on the door or the wall. Make a fun door hanger, bookmarks, apply the design to mugs, bibs, t-shirts, tote bags... Go crazy!

I finally got around to doing another Challenge at Design Bundles. Can ya guess what the prompt was?

peace love USA design

The main design are the peace fingers, heart and map of the U.S. with the splatter in the background. After making my mockups, I thought it'd be nice to add the text Baby and God Bless America. This way you can make designs similar to the ones on the previews.

4th of July sublimation

Don't forget the the new Sunflower items will be on sale for just a couple of days. Here's a freebie that coordinates with Flowers N' Bees. I've got another one for ya over in our group.

The Cherry is Selling Wonderfully Creative Scrapbooking Designs in GingerScraps, Again

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Have you heard the great news? I'm selling my templates in GingerScraps, again. The shop was always left open so that those thousands of links I had out wouldn't take viewers to a dead link. Ginger is such a sweetheart for letting me do that and for letting me sell my templates in her shop, again. If you know me, you know she has to put up with all of my antics, too. What a star!? Hehehe...

You know me, crafters! I wanted to open the shop with a celebration of new, incredibly creative templates and other design goodies. I've got 11 items in the GingerScraps shop that are new to GingerScraps. Some are NEW NEW and some just new to GingerScraps. So, check your stash before you buy.

Let's get into these new goodies in GS, peruse gorgeous page inspiration from the team and get a few tips and tricks along the way. 

My team seemed to love these new, new templates. If you do, too then you should also check out my Awesome Edges templates. I went with that artistic vibe and used the elements from them for these templates.

modern scrapbook layouts

A fantastic kit or collection will make any scrapbook layout, gorgeous.

Pairing up a template with a kit isn't always easy. Kim's page is a great example how to do it well. She used a super fun and quirky digital scrapbooking kit with a modern, edgy template.

artistic templates

Kate mixes her goodies so well with my templates. She did a bit of old meets new. The colors are modern. The temple has a modern vibe and she coupled that with a vintage photo. There's a touch of vintage in her elements, too. All of these qualities lend to the cohesiveness of her page.

Hilary went all modern. The colors are super fresh and fun, too.

Michal usually does wonderfully modern pages and she's a pro with colors. Matching photo colors with your digital goodies always make a more visually appealing scrapbook layout.

spring scrapbooking

Take that tip I just gave you and check out Evelyn's page. Perfection! If it's tough getting those colors just right, pull out just a few colors from your digital goodies.  Here's yellow, black, white and a splash of green for pop.  Brilliant!

Black is an awesome way to give your pages a modern look. Pair up black with bright colors for a fresh vibe.

crafty scrapbooking templates

I saw an image on Pinterest where someone took old paintbrushes and turned them into a stunning wreath. What a super idea! I saw a lot of beautiful sewing wreaths, too.

sewing templates

How brilliant is Kate's page?! I love the way she used that fabulous thread texture for the sewing spools. This is exactly the kind of page I pictured with this template.

Evelyn is knocking her pages out of the park! She even used all Cherry kits for her pages. I've linked them all up. Pretty great if you want to lift her pages. Cool how she did the wood paper over the spools, too. Are you getting all kinds of ideas, now?

paint brush template

The title is really fun and the colors totally grab your attention because of the black background. If you look carefully, you'll see she didn't use that many elements, but blew them up nicely and changed the colors of some of the elements from the template to finish off her page. All great digital scrapbooking skills.

Craft Fair Collection from The Cherry On Top

I've provided so many elements on the template that you don't even have to add your own. Easy, right? We don't all have hours and hours to scrapbook a page layout, right? Look closely again, at Eve's page. See the same hues in the pictures? See how she color picked the green from the green on the painting and sprinkled it all around her page? A matching green blob, a green brush...this evens out the color balance making her page look awesome. Yours will too when you use these tips.

planner templates

I am sadly abysmal at knowing what my fans love.  Isn't that so sad?! Hehehe...After all of these years, I should know better, but alas...I really love these desktop style templates and I was so uber pleased to see that they top my "Popular" category at GingerScraps. Finally! I often design something thinking my fans are going to love this only to have the opposite occur and vise versa. I think I'm cheating by designing such a super simple template, quickly and it's a big hit! Hehehe...

notebook templates

If you want a more realistic look for the notebooks and planner, use a puffy style or action. In PS and PSE it's called a Bevel. Adjust it to perfection for just the right look.

Spring Stickers from My Design Bundles Shop

What do ya think of my Spring Stickers? I actually sold a few of these. If you were part of that, thanks! I really appreciate your support.

notebook template
Fabulous vintage goodies found in Revel in Retro from yours truly.

I left the template with a realistic metal binder. I love this idea!!! I don't know about you, but I am not great at playing and tweaking metal styles. I think Eve's notebook looks so realistic thanks to the texture paper she used and the shadows.

planner scrapbook template

I did it, again! I kept a realistic looking planner on the template. This will make your page layouts look incredibly real. Use the color picker and adjust that color to perfection. Don't forget to "clip" those layers onto your planner only. Maybe this video will help. 

project life template

I loved Evelyn's idea of using my Yearbook Collection for her two pages. They look fantastic! My little design papers are so darn cute! It took me a few minutes to figure out it was my kit. Hehehe...

Faces and Flowers Templates

These are templates from Kreative Design Studio. Check your stash!

The ladies made stunning pages!!!

Are you applying some of the tips I gave with these other fab pages? Notice the patterns? Repetition is another excellent tip for you. Repeating colors and elements around a page will give you a great result.

You can go simple or go nuts with your ellies!

Here's another lot from Kreative Design Studio. There's nothing new in the Very Vintage Collection. It is HUGE though. So, if ya want. bang for your buck this is the way to go. EIGHT templates, printable sheets, papers, ellies, an alpha...

The above page is insanely creative. The Love for Literature template coupled with Very Vintage was a great combination. I love how Evelyn made her book a scrapbook. Genius! Why don't you give it a try?

Kate's pages show off more excellent color usage and balance.

Isn't her butterfly effect so cool? Wink, wink... The shadows on her photos are pretty epic, too.

quick scrapbooking page

I love how Michal shows off my templates in a manner that is so approachable. Some of my ladies make pages that make me shake my head. They look SO hard to scrap! Michal has a totally functional, simplistic style that is very appealing. They are super, super clean and encourages people to give scrapbooking a try. I love that!

Ashley joined in for just a bit of our Scrap-A-Thon with her super pretty page. You can still go through our blog, grab all of the crazy freebies and peruse the album from our group and add your pages there.

You don't always have to have realistic aspects on your pages. That's the beauty of art. Mix and mingle styles, elements and concepts to stir the mind.

This pack of templates is also from Kreative Design Studio.

Mixing realistic with whimsical is always fun! Jenn sure knows how to make a gorgeous page.

cutting machine template

I'm finally growing a bit...bored with scrapbooking after more than 20 years. Hehehe...lately when I scrap, I keep it simple to just show off my templates or to show different, easy ways to use them. Above and below, I've simply added styles and photos to my pages and it lended a quick result.

Above, the white sticker aspect of the elements has been removed. Did ya know you can do that? Watch a couple videos with the lasso tool or even the magic wand. You can ditch the outline with a simple click or two. I do this a lot. Above the sticker outline is gone and below she left it.

animal inspired printables

is Kim's page not THE best page idea?! I LOVE it!

Disney inspired scrapbooking

You can scrap your pets in a really fun and unique way...

or just use the adorable animals for any subject.

Have you noticed how my ladies use their shadows? I like a rather intense shadow. Other scrappers go for a more subdued shadow. It's all a matter of preference and effect. Above, Theresa use a smaller, subtle shadow for her elements.

The shadow behind hedgy is my shadow. Dark, gives my little guy lift.

versatile printables

Did you make it all the way through?! You rock!!! This was one heck of a blog. I need a break! A long walk through the mountains should do. I'm sure I'll find all kinds of wonderful to inspire me for my next set of templates and designs.
