Welcome to Freebie Friday with The Cherry On Top.
I've got a new designer in the spot light. Well, she's not new, but it's the first time I was able to work with her fabulous collections. I'm a Creative Team Member at The CT Hot Spot. We've got a sweet supply of designers over there and we are free to work with any or all of the collections that they are promoting. Feel free to join our forum and post your lovelies in the gallery there.
The CT Hot Spot staff has been in the digital scrapbooking business for years. The added up experience can be seen through quality work with marketing. If you are a designer who'd like someone else to take care of the business/marketing side of your digital scrap, then you should give them a try.
Let's get back to some sweet inspiration from Fayette Designs and The Cherry.
Free To Be is an absolutely gorgeous collection. Believe it or not, there is an underlying fourth of July theme that I completely ignored for both of my layouts. Making this collection just super for anyone. Including those living outside of the U.S.

I found this collection fabulously sassy. So, I scrapped up my niece and her friends. Above, I used a great template from Lissy Kay Designs, A Reel Mess. I love adding embellishments to doodles. It takes that flatness out and adds a splash of colour.
How creative are these girls? Putting my nieces hair in the shape of multiple hearts. So cute! Such an interesting colour palette. Various shades of blue, a bright pop of red and that lovely contrasting black to make it all stand out.
Sunshine on my Shoulder is another pretty collection from Fayette Designs. If I absolutely had to choose, this would be THE collection to have in your stash. Just observe the next two layouts and take note of all of the fabulous elements in this kit. The colour palette is just magical.
The birds, this whimsical lady on her bike and once again, a black injection to grab your attention are just some of the fabulousness in this stunning collection.
I used friend's of mine vacation photos to scrap these up.
Here is the last collection I worked with, Beach Therapy. Once again, more awesomeness than you can shake a stick at. I used Lissy Kay Designs, Feeling Wavy templates for both of them. This way I get a good solid, coordinating look for a double layout that'll look fantastic in an album and of course digital templates are super for when your mojo is lacking and you want to save time.
I used our own Spain vacation for these layouts. The camera alluding JJ and some great shots of the nearby scenery in Calpe, Spain. I am just loving these cute under water critters. There are some journal cards in the collection I really wanted to use and plan on designing a hybrid mini with them, so stay tuned.
These colours are the epitome of the beach and will make your layouts just as great as your trip. I've stated several times, that collections are one of the best ways to get awesome layouts. If you're not a pro at grabbing various elements and papers from different kits and matching them just right, this is the way to go. Your scrapping will go so much smoother and faster when you buy collections.
I like to thank the readers with a little goody and I really love today's freebie. You could use it as I did as a border across the top of the layout. You could add some large, coordinating word art and put it in the middle of your page, too. Place a photo behind it and put it at an angle. The choice is yours. Remember it is for Personal Use only.

Here is another layout from The CT Hot Spot using Praire Song Scraps, Remember and a Lissy Kay Template, Picturesque.

Thanks so much for making The Cherry a part of your day.
