Adorable Free Mini Scrapbook for Easter from The Cherry On Top

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I'm back with more fun, free Easter printables for you. I love easy paper craft projects and that's what I've got for ya, today. Print off these cute spring mini scrapbook pages, cut out the easy shapes, add your fun photos and bind. I'd score a half inch in and bind with brads. If you keep the book small, you can just staple it if you like.

Free Easter Printables Stickers a Template and Papers are Coming Your Way

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

SPOILER ALERT!!! Hehehe...

I want you to keep coming back to The Cherry. So, I've put together some sweet freebies that coordinate. I used designs from Design Bundles. If ya want to look for more papers and more that match with these freebies, pop over to Plus.

free easter printables

Above, I've got a page of 3x4 inch journal cards that you can print or use digitally. There's also some really cute, round stickers. They are very similar to what you can get in Plus. I saved the layered version so I can change them up for other uses. I love the soft, pastel color palette and the cute characters from the talented designers at Design Bundles.

These will be available separately, right here on the blog. Your first freebie is the round stickers. You can download them, right here.

free easter book

The above printable is a mini scrapbook or maybe you'd rather turn the designs into a greeting card? Add a title, text, journaling, pictures ... I've left them blank so you have some creative freedom. I'll have a pack of papers, too! You'll be able to use them together. The image below is my book from Plus. If you prefer it, download and get scrappy. You'll also see a kind of tutorial over there. Use brads to join the pages or staples. This is a simple, quick project. Maybe the kids want to have at it?

easter mini album

Below, is a super fun, layered page layout template. Open it in your favorite scrapbooking software. I sometimes use the software that comes FREE with the Plus Membership. I've got a few videos showing you how to do it. It might be easier than ya think. Keep your eyes out for the template. It will be free on the blog, this month.

Crazy Delicious Homemade Apple Oatmeal

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I'm back with the apple oatmeal recipe.

free recipe card

Last week, I gave away these free recipe cards. Keep these in your downloads and save them up with the other recipe cards that will follow. Print them out and save them for yourself or use them for a gift in the future. Maybe add the book to a gift basket for a housewarming gift? I'll be showing you various ways to put the book together once we've got more pages ready.

free recipe card

Besides prepping your apple, this dish takes about 5 minutes to make. I know, right?!

If you look closely, you'll see I didn't include amounts. I'm the kind of person that likes to reinvent the wheel. It's the way I cook! Ya just don't know how much people need. I only ever make enough oatmeal for me or maybe for my son and I. It's always different. I very rarely measure. I wouldn't recommend this for new cooks. I'll write out the recipe in more detail, now.

If you're making this for one person, use a tablespoon of butter or ghee and let it melt. Add your small, thin apple pieces (core the apple if you like and if you can handle it, leave the peel). Cook the apples until they start to soften a bit. I add my sweetness here. Consider maple syrup or local honey for the healthiest option. It depends on how sweet you like your oatmeal. I'd use a tablespoon. I also add my cinnamon here and I like a lot. 1/4 teaspoon or less. Give the mix a good stir and add the oatmeal. For one person a cup might suffice. It depends on how much ya want, right? Always consider organic/bio products that are local.

It is yummy leftover. (Pour some milk or juice over the leftover oatmeal and heat it up a bit.)

Pour over the liquid immediately after the oatmeal. (Room temperature is ideal.)Again, how much depends on how mushy you like your oatmeal. It's always better to under do it than over do it. Always! I just pour the juice, water, milk or buttermilk over the mix until it's all just covered. It will get sucked up fast.

It doesn't need to cook too long. Some people like it with a bite and others well done. Once it is all softened, it's ready.

You can use any kind of fruit in place of the apple. Consider pear, berries, raisins and even pumpkin. I love pumpkin. Ya might be surprised how sweet it is.

Good luck with your oatmeal! Come on back for more recipes, printables and scrapbooking goodness.
