New Scrapbooking Templates, You Could Be A Winner and New Freebies

 Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Whoo hoo!  We made it to Friday and we've got great new templates, new pretty pages with new collections from around DigiLand and as usual, free stuff.

We've just put these new templates in our shop, Kreative Design Studio.  Photo Love scrapbooking templates are mega versatile templates.  I've left all of the squares on their own layer for complete flexibility.  Use the spots for papers or photos, merge where ya want and embellish on top.

Four fabulous templates on a 12x12 format in formats, psd, tif and png.  Never tried our templates before?  We've got dozens of free ones on the blog.  Scroll through and find one that suits you to see the quality and craft of our goodies.  I've got a link for a free template more towards the end of the blog so keep on reading.

Can ya recognise the awesomeness of Tammy's pages?!  That's her's up there. ^^^^  She's mega talented.  Mine is the one below.  Tammy and I both, used the spots for papers only and she didn't even bother with photos!  Hehehe... Never let a template dictate a theme that doesn't work for you.  That is the beauty of templates.  Change them up to suit your needs.  I even blog different ways to change up templates on occasion.

I had a rare opportunity to see my brother and his wife this summer.  I hadn't seem him in 15 years!  My hubs took this pic of them at our place in Germany.  That's the Mosel River in the background.  Breath taking, eh?

Rachelle is a star, super scrapper!  She's done a double and she used our Free Falling scrapbooking kit.  You can find the kit here.

Andrea and Chris are showing off other ways to use those spots, which is exactly what I wanted you to see.  You could select the layers/squares you wish to use for one photo, merge those (don't forget to get rid of the shadow) and crop your photo in.

I just love how Chris scrapped in that long photo!  She really took advantage of these squares and was able to show off a lot of pictures.

Rochelle also scrapped a super page with my gal Paty Greif's, Santa's Helpers collection, which is on sale for 30% at GingerScraps.

Aimee Harrison has two new collections out this week and they are SO fab!  This one is Jolly Ole Santa Clause and my little guy thrilled with his Pokemon stuffs.  Aimee's word art is so unbelievably fantastic.  If you're like me and not really into all of that journaling, her word art is perfect.  I often use them as titles, like I did here.  I did have to add that touch of green paper behind those deer so it stood out a bit better.  I wanted to make it look more like a present, but it just didn't seem to really add to the cluster. It made it too, busy.

 Let's roll on to those freebies!

Have you taken the ride on our train of free templates?  Do ya love templates as much as I do or are you new to templates?  I've got a lot of tutorials on the blog as well as videos to get you started using templates. It is SO easy and you will save a lot of time, too.

This is  my page with the free template and the DigiScrap Parade's free Bold collection.

I like showing off the versatility of a collection like this.  There is a lot of pink in it, but also a lot of yellow and blue.  You can just as easily scrap up a girly page as a page for guys.

There is a really fun challenge group on Facebook that you may want to consider joining.  I'm a contributor there and these two templates will be available for free when you join in on the mash up challenge. If they are not up yet, give it time. They will be and they won't be available free for long.

The templates are a part of a pack of templates that will be available next year.  They have a nifty artistic flair to them.
