Tattoo Inspired Digital Scrapbooking Templates, Layout Love, Gratitude and a New BoHo Chic, Free Printable For You

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Have you ever sat back the next day and reveled in an awesome morning before?  I'm doing that, right now.  Yesterday, I received a lovely e-mail from a fan exuberantly thanking me for all of the generous freebies I put around our social hot spots.  Wow!  That someone would take the time to send me an e-mail like that is a real rarity and boy, is it nice.  Shortly after, an insurance appraiser said the insurance would pay to have our windows fixed after robbers damaged and destroyed half of the doors and windows around our house as well as stole our family heirlooms, cash, totally unforgettable mementos...Then, I received a mail from Ginger at GingerScraps stating that I could be a permanent designer at GingerScraps!  Whoo hoo!  I was so happy, I made chocolate donuts for the kids.  Hehehehe...

Did you know that being grateful is like medicine?  I strongly recommend, telling people all of the little things or big things that you like, admire, love or appreciate about them.  Little complements throughout the day like, "I love those jeans!"  "Your hair looks terrific!"  "When is the last time I told you how awesome you are?"  Not only will you totally make someone's day, but YOU will actually benefit physiologically from it, too!  Spread some sunshine this weekend and everyday.

Every morning when you wake up, be glad ya did!  Hehehe...Think about all of what's right in your life while you slowly wake up.  Mmm...your bed, a roof over your head, AC or heating, running water, a loving pet, safe and healthy kids and or partner...As you're going through your day, take note of all of the awesome that is surrounding you and if some crap starts to seep into your brain, push it out immediately and concentrate on what is good. (Says the recovering Acute Anxiety Disorder sufferer.)

OK, there's your pep talk and daily does of awesome that will be sure to change your life!

I've got some templates that are so NOT taboo.  Though, that might be a cool idea for future.  Hehehe...They were tattoo inspired, but not at all solely for pictures of tattoos.  Some tattoos are beautiful pieces of art and I've wanted one for decades, but have continuously yielded for all kinds of reasons.  I love perusing images of tattoos and they are often the subjects of my templates.  This time it might be a bit more evident.

 Got Ink Templates

None of my ladies scrapped with a tattoo theme and I invite you to do the same.  Take notice of the versatility in them.

I thought I'd share with you, how you can change up the design for this particular template.  I've left the two pieces separate so that you could either form a cross or just a shape.  By slightly nudging up or down or centering you can make this design anyway you like.  I thought some people might enjoy a religious element on their page.  It might be great to scrap someone who has passed or images from church.  Likewise, you can move the pieces to fit your needs.

The differences are very subtle.

Last week's templates were a real success and I couldn't be happier about that!  A huge thanks to all of you that added Only You to your template stash!  I'm seeing a lot of gorgeous pages with them.

Did you see we've added more goodies to the shop?  There are even more still.  Keep scrolling to see those and make sure you don't already own them.

I used our 2 Dye 4 templates for this expressive page.  I took out all of the...neutral colors and elements and designed a page to fit a crap mood.  Hehehe...I wasn't in a bad mood.  That rarely happens, though it is really therapeutic to scrap when ya feel sad, depressed, anxious...scrap therapy really works.  Give it a try?

These are the other templates I've recently added to the shop at GingerScraps.

My gal Theresa scrapped up our Day Of The Dead templates with BoHo Chic.  I love denim!

Did ya see our $2 Tuesday deals this week?  I hope you didn't miss!  I've got all of the Tuesday's in January planned and plan on doing them all for February soon, too.  So maybe set a notification to check out what they are each week?  It's totally worth it!

If you're a freebie lover, like myself then you'll definitely want to hit up GingerScraps challenges.  I used this month's Buffet's color palette for the freebies I provided this month which were the Desktop Challenge and one of the templates.  That means there were TWO free templates this month.
