New Christmas Scrapbooking Templates and a Couple of Awesome Freebies

Welcome to The Cherry on Top.

I've got some awesome new templates in the shop, beautiful pages to inspire you to get scrappy, today as well as our typical freebies, links to freebies and a peep at tomorrow's freebie.

I'm just crazy about scrapping Christmas!  Ach, who am I kidding.  I'm just crazy!  Hehehe...I know a few scrappy peeps who have had enough of scrapping Santa and Rudolph.  Not me!  Let's keep scrapping up the reindeer bunch, manger scenes and snowy landscapes with a magical star lighting up the sky.

The new templates are by no means exceptional to Christmas pages.  Check out what I and my super fab team have designed with them.

I always start with Tammy.  Have ya noticed?  Her stuff is just jaw droppingly fantastic.  Don'cha think? I want to draw you in with all of this gorgeousness.

This next page is mine and I bet you can see right through the Christmas elements and put in a beautiful, spring or summery page.  I just love showing off all of these beautiful flowers from Throwing Some Scraps Around newest kit, Christmas Cheer.  What a great name for a kit and how pretty!  Keep scrolling for a preview of it.

Andrea scrapped a really beautiful page.  Pretty clusters and delightful food.  My stomach was growling before I saw this.  Now, it's making me even  more hungry.  Hehehe...

I scrapped this page using Kim Cameron's new kit, Red Nosed Reindeer.  In typical, Kim fashion, she's got some really great embellishments and traditional goodies.  Lately she's been including these nifty patterned overlays, which I find really fantastic.  Sometimes a page is missing something and often it's a nifty, small print in the background that it's calling for.  

Check out my templates.  You'll see I also started including overlays or papers that suggest that this is the kind of background you might want to consider using when designing with our templates.

Rochelle's gone spring with her page.  Isn't it just refreshingly fab?!

Laureen did some scrap-a-licious magic on her pages with the new templates.  Christmas fun with bright, crisp, not so traditional colours.

Michal has scrapped up some serious gorgeousness, too.  Just look how beautiful.  This is just what I imagined with this template.  Pretty, simple clusters using smaller ellies and how about that gold accordion flower?  Awesome!

Dana from Made By Keuntje, designed this pretty page using Gnome For Christmas and our templates, 'Tis The Season.

How'z about get'n your hands on this fabulous free mini from Aimee Harrison.  If I'm not mistaken, it's a part of a fabulous blog hop of freebies.  See what I designed with it.

I used the free mini and my templates that released last week, Photo Love.  You can scrap so prettily and quickly with these templates.  The mini has just enough goodies for super pages.

Just one more really fun page with Photo Love templates and Santa's Little Helpers from Paty Greif Designs.  Danica scrapped this one up and I scrapped a page with this awesome collection Paty's, too.

That's my cheeky, hair pulling bebe!  Hehehe...  It was a phase, thank goodness. 

Santa's Little Helpers

I'll be hosting an Ugly Sweater party this year for the family and to my dismay, some of the guests are not thrilled about it.  I thought they'd love the idea.  What do I know?!  Hehehe...Such a bummer, but I told them to suck it up.  BUAH!  

I needed these little sweaters for some printables I wanted for the party.  I've not even finished them yet.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute, right?  Add your own texture.  A knit one would look so great.  I canNOT believe I didn't think of that earlier.  I used a felt one on one of the sweaters and it looked pretty cool, too.  I left the templates in all kinds of different layers.  There is one with totally separate layers so you can customise the look a bit more and one has mostly merged layers so you can design very quickly.  Choose the one that fits your needs.

I've included in this template pack, the free printables from Saturday as well as FOUR different, ugly sweaters in png format for you to use.

This is what I'll have for Hybrid Saturday, tomorrow.  Come on back and grab them while they are free.  I used my kit from last year to scrap these.

Now, for the freebies.  Some I've mentioned, but are so great, I want to make sure no one misses them.

I've been posting this one around a bit.  I'm so proud of these ultra arty templates.  I wanted to make something extra special for the new group's mash up templates challenge.  I still have to play!  You get tow of these templates for FREE and you mix and match to come up with one page using two templates.  Pretty coll and challenging right?

Jodi from Throwing Some Scraps Around did an absolutely stunning page.  Isn't it JUST so fab?!  My goodness.  I told her to get it printed on canvas and hang it in the living room.  I would if I knew the beauties in the picture.  Hehehe...
