New Scrapbooking Templates, A New Fabulous Freebie, NSD Information and Scrapbooking Inspiration

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I want you to take a deep breath.  That's it!  Breathe in...and exhale...Hehehe...I always try my best to keep it as brief as possible, but you know me.  I'm into so much and I want to share it all with you.  I also want you to breathe in, close your eyes and think about the fantasticness that is iNternational Scrapbooking Day!  If you've been following The Cherry over the last few years, you know how much we love iNSD.  We share dozens of freebies and I've got a peek and a print out of what we are doing this year because it is going to be even more awesome than usual.

Maybe one more breath before you take in all of this scrapbooking loveliness? In...and out...Ok, you're all set!  Get ready to be inspired!

Here are our newest templates.

These templates gives an entire new meaning of paper play, right?!  Let your papers and pictures take over and put the elements in the back seat this time.  Or not!  Hehehe...Check out what I and my super team have done with them.

This first page is my own.  I'm making an album for my mother-in-law's 70th birthday at the requests of her sister.  Shhh...don't tell anyone.  Hehehe...I used Throwing Some Scraps Around new gorgeous kit, Memories of Home.  I had to giggle when I started cropping in Jodi's papers to my templates.  Our colours were so similar!  Jodi's kit is stunning.  You can check it out, here.

Kim always does such fantastic work.  Isn't this page just darling?!  The kit, the pic, the template.  Absolutely delightful.  If I'm not mistaking, this looks like a kit from Jen Yurko.

Jodi also did a beautiful page.  She used goodies from Throwing Some Scraps Around.

Here's a few fun pages from Rachelle.  This page uses a kit from Aprilisa.

Here are a couple more pages using Banner Bananas from Carol.

Theresa loves her double pages.  She's used an adorable kit from LouCee Creationsand some extra frogs from GS Creations.

Laureen played, too!  What a great pic.

I'm totally loving Dana's page.  It's SO awesome seeing my beautiful scrappy sisters in real life.  Well, at least a picture of them in real life.  Hehehe...She's used a kit from JoCee.

How about Dana's other page?!  Look at that sassy monkey, too!  This page has The Cherry written all over it.  Bright, fun and cheeky pic!  Perfection.  Dana from Made By Keuntje, used last week's new release, Luscious Layers.
The week before last, we released Framed templates.  I finally got around to scrapping them up.  I used a gorgeous collection from Aimee Harrison Designs, Tidepooling.

Here's another page of my own usingFramed templatesand Better Together.  An absolutely must have collection.  You can find it here.  That's me and the hubs on our most recent vacation in Calpe, Spain.

Shady Ladyis Key Lime Digi Designs newest collection and as you can see it is exceptional.  The papers are just WOW and there are a lot of very thoughtful elements, too.  The illustrious Sandy has permitted me to design a freebie to entice you even further, but I honestly don't think you need further enticing, do you?

So I was scrapping up my page with Sandy's gorgeous collection and I just HAD to use this paper as my background.  It is beyond fab, but then I run into the problem, I often face and that is, contrast.  All of my lovelies got a bit lost.  I fashioned up these very large outer edge masks and you can see the result.  My cluster and photo show up just fine with the plain, bright background paper backing it up.  I put these in the shop thinking they might help you out, too.  I used Key Lime's gorgeous papers to show them off.

The big event is fast approaching!  Here's what we will be up to.  If you want to join us in our Scrap N' Chat, join the event in our Scrap-A-Licious group on FB.

It is going to be EPIC!  Hehehe...I'd just love to have you join in on all of the fun!  This is a peek at the free kit and template I'll have for the hop around.

Tomorrow, I'll have May's free calendar ready for you.
Here is today's, new freebie.  I hope you like it.  If so, tell me how much in the comments.
