Welcome to The Cherry On Top.
The madness has started with what is a capitalist's dream! Hehehe...I do appreciate the sales this time of year and of course I don't need much of an excuse to give you a great deal so I'm in, too. Pop over to one of my shops and enjoy 50% Friday and Saturday only.
I've divided up the pre sale template pack and I was supposed to start with Butterflies are Free and had yet another brain fart and put in Cut It Out. Those I thought were my favorite, but then I started playing with Butterflies Are Free and OMGoodness! My pages came out pretty awesome and I used all kits releasing this week. So you'll see those pages anyway. Hehehe...
If you forgot what Cut It Out looked like, here it is.
and here are a few pages I designed with it.
I also gave away a free taste last week with this quick page. The link is still live.
Here are some pages from some very talented Scrappy Sisters.
As I mentioned, you can totally use the png, white outline of these templates in your cutting machines. The one with the scribble circle might be a bit tricky, but a few ladies did manage to do it! Whoo hoo! Here's a traditional example for you.
Pretty cool, eh and certainly very versatile. Now, a few peeps asked me to give more layers on my cuttable templates so that's what I did with all of the rest of the templates I designed after these. I'm going to make as many cuttables files as I can from these kinds of templates. I've got a nifty start in the shop, Kreative Design Studioon Etsy. Go check them out!
I've got some pages to show off with more fantasticness from around DigiLand.
Throwing Some Scraps Around has an awesome new kit out, Be Of Good Cheer. You know me. I like to show off the many sides of a kit or collection. Here's my page showing off the glitter and glamour in this kit. I LOVE these colours together! I adjusted the background paper for a touch more contrast. I used Jodi's scatter for an anchor as well whimsical, reach out and touch the magic, on the top. I made some simple word art and clipped in one of Jodi's papers so it matched perfectly and gave a bit of texture. The polaroid frames are easy to make. Copy your background, size it to the size you want, then use the marquee tool to cut out whatever spot you want from the photo. Duplicate your plain background or anyone really and layer it behind the frame for your photo and crop in your pic. Boom! Done! I use these techniques all of the time. Especially, when there is no frame that suits my needs in the kit or collection.
Here's the more jovial, fun and whimsical side of, Be Of Good Cheer. Wow! Those ugly sweaters matched this part perfectly! Hehehe...I hosted the Ugly Sweater party last year. Though not everyone was up for it, they all played along and I have a feeling that some of them even ended up enjoying it. There sure were a lot of laughs. What were the chances that such a small party, someone would have the same sweater?! Hehehe...Oh! This is from the template pack, Butterflies Are Free.
So here is yet another page with Butterflies Are Free templates from the Pre Sale pack and a gorgeous new collection from Aimee Harrison Designs about family. Isn't it so pretty?! Those torn papers are lovely!
Jodi from Throwing Some Scraps Around is sponsoring your freebie, today! She said it'd be ok for me to give you the page I designed as a free quick page. Isn't she a doll?!
Here are some more nice freebies from around the web. My gal Andrea totally linked a sister up!
Y'all! I was just told by the store owner that Scrappy Sisters is having server issues. Terrible timing, right?! I've went in and put my Kreative Design Studio shop on sale for 50% throughout the entire weekend. This is such a bummer and I apologize for any inconvenience. I'll tell ya what...if there is something in the SS shop that isn't in my Etsy shop, I can still get it to you if you contact me. I'm on European time and hosting a special needs party this weekend so it might take me a bit to get back to you. E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or requests or if you're in our group, you can contact me via Facebook, too.
Thanks so much for checking out The Cherry.
I'll be back tomorrow with your next, free printable card for your, Why I Love You mini album.
