Cutting Edge Scrapbooking Templates and a Festive Free Halloween Quick Page

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I've got yet another blog packed full of gorgeous inspiration with our newest templates from my totally awesome Creative Team, a few new releases from some of my favourite designers, a great freebie and my two pages from the third round of the Layout Artist competition at the Digital Scrapbooking Studio.

Dive into today's creative crazy blog!

 Flourish Templates

How'z about those new templates, huh?  Pretty amazing and different, right?  I layered like crazy when it came to those edges and scatter and splatter.  Pain stakingly detailed so you don't have to do all of the work.  It's been done for you!  I scrapped all of these templates, as you will see further down the blog and I was so pleased how easy and fast my pages were scrapped.  That is the point of templates, in my mind at least, yet sometimes I can take forever to scrap a page with templates, but not these.  You've got to give them a try and see just how gorgeous your pages are going to be!

Is Dana's page not mega fab?!  It is exactly what I thought a page with this template should like.  Smashing!!!

Laureen is new to our team and she's also played with all of the templates.  Look at her pretty page.

 Flourish Templates #1 and Louise L, My Baby Love

This is another page from Laureen.  I love that carousel element.

Flourish Templates #3 and Harvest Festival from Laura Burger

How about this fabulous page, also from Laureen.  Just wow!

 Flourish Templates #2 and Boho Soul from Laura Burger

How about the splendid clustering Michal did on this fantastic page.  You don't have to use the silhouette provided.  They are supposed to be a guide.  They are there to give you an idea of what kind of element would look good in that place.

 Flourish Template#1 The Beauty of Crafting from BooLand and Valentina

Rachelle also provides you with a double layout using templates #2 and #3.  I'll be selling these separately in the shop due to their uniqueness.

My gal Robyn from Scrapbook Crazy Creations by Robyn stepped in to help produce a couple of pages with her own scrapbooking products.  Her pages are pretty darn fabulous, too!

 Flourish Template #1 and Happiness from Robyn

I just love how Robyn made my silhouette witchy!  What a great idea!

 Flourish Template #2 and Wendy Witch from Robyn Scrapbook Crazy

If you are tiring from fall colours, this springy page will perk you up.  So soft and pretty, from Rochelle.

 Flourish Template #3 and Enjoy The Moment from Heartstrings Scrap Art

Here's a page of mine using colour Me Autumn from Paty Greif.  I used a different image as well, for the center.  This is what I was referring to when I said to consider the shape given in the template and use a similar shape for your page if ours doesn't fit.  I don't have any ballerina's in the family.  Hehehe...

This is another one of my pages using Throwing Some Scraps Around new, vibrantly beautiful kit, Beauty Is All Around Us.  It sure is, right?  Take a deep breath outside.  Feel the grass between your toes or enjoy the fresh cool air as it goes through your nose and into your lungs.  Mmmm...

Moving on to more new goodies around DigiLand...

This is my page using Made By Keuntje's new kit, Witch's Brew.  So my kind of kit!  Black kitties, lots o' purple, glamorous gold and so many fun, hand drawn characters.  I really, really love those.  You'll see the inspiration in today's freebie from this page.

I made an attempt at an extraction of me.  Ugh!  Hehehe..It didn't come out all that great so I was thrilled to use Dana's messy stamps to help conceal the imperfections of my extraction.  Hehehe...Just like in traditional scrapbooking, I use embellishments to hide my errors!  BUAH!  Hehehe...

I've been sharing my page entries in the Digital Scrapbooking Studio's Layout Artist competition.  This is for the traditional category for round #3 and it's Aimee Harrison's Collection, Celebration of You.

Go vote for your favourite or do the play along at the Studio.

This is my artistic page for round #3.  Didn't think I'd make it to round #2 so I'm really, really thrilled to still be in this competition.  It's been making me scrap better and try things I wouldn't normally do and I get to use some designers goodies I've never scrapped with.

Tomorrow, I'll be back with a rather extensive Halloween recap.  I'll share any links that are still live of our previous, free Halloween printables as well as our blogs featuring Halloween in case you are needing inspiration.

Happy scrapping!
