Welcome to The Cherry On Top.
It's going to be another one of "those" entries. So, grab something lovely to sip on, get comfortable and enjoy this blog that I've sprinkled with fun freebies through its entirety. There are 6 freebies and or links to freebies that will lead you to even more free stuff so read carefully through and enjoy.
I figured by being in a digital scrapbooking shop, there would be a lot of work and boy was I right. On top of weekly releases, $2 Dollar Tuesdays, Monthly Buffets, Bake Sales, (those are $1 sales incase you were wondering.) challenges, daily posting at social hot spots like Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook there is also forum and gallery posting, too. Not to forget all of the action in the shop itself. Wow! My head is spinning! Hehehe...I love keeping busy though so we'll continue to motor through and bring you the most awesome scrap-a-liciousness that we can provide.
I've got so much going on this month at the GingerScraps shop. Yes! I got another month extension and I've been really working it in hopes of getting a permanent position. Let me show you all of the fantastic happenings going on this month. You might want to book mark this blog or refer back to it because it's that much. Of course signing up for our newsletter will help as well.
Speaking of which, are you enjoying your 12 Days of Christmas freebies? You've got a whole lot to scrap by now with only a few more days left and when you keep scrolling, you'll get yet another fun freebie from the Boho Chic collection.
First, what you're seeing above is a little peek at the collaboration between myself and Sandy from Key Lime Digi Design. We've teamed up and designed one heck of a lovely collection for the Daily Download over on the Gingerscraps Blog. Every single day this month, you'll receive a portion of our collaboration and if you carefully keep scrolling I've linked up another coordinating freebie from the Toujours (always) collection. The daily freebies are available for five days which is pretty good if you forget. Maybe you could set up some kind of notification on your phone so you don't miss a beat?
Coordinating ever so slightly with the Daily Download are these templates. I live just a few short hours drive from Paris and I'll tell you, it really is everything they say and more. Paris is absolutely magical and it's also a bit like where you live, too. So our goodies will go with any kind of pictures you want to scrap. There is a hint of things French, but it's mostly just a potpourri of awesome beauty with a vintage touch.
These first couple of pages are mine, using our collaborative menagerie of awesome. Hehehe...You might not even be able to tell that these pictures were taken in Paris. I couldn't find any of the rest! Ahhh!!! I'm so glad I've already scrapped them both traditionally and digitally. Shoo...I'm most unorganized when it comes to my digital stash and I'm super great at losing stuff, too.
What is cool, is this page gives me an example to show you that you really don't have to use pictures of Paris or France with this collection. Keep scrolling to see more.
For my first two templates I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The Eiffel Tower and a bike with a basket. The rest took further thought and perusing the internet. I live in a Medieval village in Germany and I love to take pictures of some the old aspects of it. The craftsmanship that went into the architecture always amazes me. Still standing hundreds of years later speaks volumes and I certainly wish we would do more lasting, craftsmanship with all we do, everyday. Instead we rush through everything, often not even thinking about the impact we are making on ourselves, our finances or the environment.
I love the way Cindy used the mask from this template and her vintage looking shots of Paris and the extraordinary views from the Eiffel Tower. No! I didn't go up! I'm the kind of lady who likes to keep her feet on the ground. Hehehe...
Jarmila and Ngoc have used these templates for totally different kinds of pictures and so can you.
Kiana has join The Cherry and you can see why, right? Wow! Pairing up these templates with Alexis Design Studio, also found at GingerScraps, was a brilliant idea. Just feast your eyes on this beautiful page.
How are you digging this new rainbow hair color trend? Personally, I find it ok to actually look human, but I can also appreciate wanting to spice things up and stand out from the rest. A bit of old meets new in Jarmila's page.
Hilary turned my classic looking template into something amazingly modern, bright and youthful. I just love that about templates. Her page is a perfect example of the versatility of templates and how easy it is to get them to work for you.
Another look at what's waiting for you in our Daily Downloads. Isn't it just so exciting?!
I promised a sprinkling of freebies. This is your second, if you are counting. The first one is actually linked up to what should be three days worth of goodies at the Gingerscraps Blog. The one below can be found on their Facebook Page.
Oh! I totally forgot to mention that our shop is on sale at 40% off since we are a part of the Designer Spot Light AND hehehehe...Sandy and I may have even included a coupon in the daily download...A huge thanks to all of you who have already benefited from the coupon and the sale. What a great opportunity to stock up on our products and if you are not familiar with Sandy's goodies you MUST take a look. I've been on her CT for many years and her designs are some of my very favorite. Check out Bermuda Shorts and Pinky Promise. Those kits are SO cute!
Have you heard the huge news? JoCee Designs is now exclusively at Sweet Shoppe! That is total eek worthy news and I'm so, so excited I still get to stay on the team and learn the ropes over there. Here is my first page using JoCee's new goodies designed especially for the Sweet Shoppe, New Beginnings. Isn't it just beautiful? Such awesome colors and so fun. Why not pop over and take a look at Jo's new shop?
I couldn't wait to play with another template from the For Kicks pack and these pictures of me and hubs from Christmas Eve, were perfect. A perfect team was Funny Indeed from Clever Monkey Graphic, don't ya think? Just as fun and refreshing as the templates, right? I see that it's on a mega sale and that you can get the bundle for just $5?! That's totally Cherry priced!
STOP! Time for another freebie. Zip over to the GingerScraps forum and grab my desk top challenge. You could always just put a large picture in the calendar spot if ya don't need it. I even kept the form in a mask so it'll translate great that way.
There are already several finished desktops to admire! Go see what the ladies are doing.
If you look closely, you'll see that this page doesn't use the woven strips.
I still really want to play with this template, too.
Oh! Another freebie?! This is your coordinating pack of graphics from the BoHo Chic collection I've been giving away to our newsletter recipients. I like to give incentive to our readers to stick with us, by offering freebies exclusively to them. As I do with our lovely blog readers and fans in our group.

Here's a pack one of our most popular templates, Tag! You're It! It is a total coincidence that the colors match this new page scrapped by super star, Ella. Isn't her page just jaw dropping? Don't forget, the shop is 40% off!
I've got another new page from Scrappy Sister, Wendy. She also used our very popular templates, Celebrate Winter.
Speaking of celebrate...these were our templates from last week and Rachelle from Bits N' Pieces page.
Do you remember these lovely templates? I've put them in the GingerScraps shop and of course, they are also 40% off. These are super versatile and so fun. You'll use them over and over, promise.
My gal Sandy used Revel In Ribbons for her really fun page and her adorable doggie.
