Welcome to The Cherry On Top.
Yet another, fantastic scrappy edition of The Cherry On Top. Mom's are in the spotlight, today! As well as scrappy inspiration both digital and traditional and some news on a few fabulous new releases from Boomersgirl Designs and Brenian Designs. Plus, a free printable and free template for our fellow crafting junkies.
How about the sweetness in this layout? My mom and oldest son 10 years ago. My, how time flies! On our previous blog we covered templates and different ways to use them so you can get more usage out of your templates. We've got another example right here.
Check out the first cluster in the below preview. It's what I used to design the above layout. What a fantastically fast way to get scrappy! I layered up the photo spots and frames a bit different and instead of using four pictures, I scrapped up some beautiful papers from the kit, Mother from Boomersgirl Designs. Then I blew up Brenian's entire cluster to fit nicely on a 12x12. Simply grab a ribbon or borders like the light yellow one here and frame up the entire layout. I added the flowers to each corner for a little more embellishment and to hide the overlapping borders.
I absolutely love thees cluster templates and can use them over and over again in the future. Click on the preview image to get to Bren's store and see more goodies.
Here's a close up look at Lori's kit, Mother. Full of her sweet cuties, lovely elements and a really gorgeous colour palette. You can also click on the preview to see Lori's store. This kit will release on Friday, May 1st.
There's an awesome smattering of tea stuff in here and I just had to use it. I whipped up these free, tea bag envelopes for you with Lori's permission. Isn't she the best?! She offers freebies with every one of her new releases. So make sure you keep in touch with her. Check out the Boomersgirl blog for more free goodies and get a look at more of her wonderful products as well as layouts from the Creative Team.
These are no longer available, but we've got others that still are. Check them out, here.
This is no ordinary template. I've created a template to cut in a jpeg format for a traditional scrap project as well as one in a tiff format so you can do what I did above and design your tea bag envelopes with digital products and just print and cut.
Here's a look at my next blog feature. An adorable mini album with a full tutorial with pictures on how to create your very own mini album/gift card or money holder as well as another free template in both formats mentioned above for traditional crafters and digital divas.
If templates are your thing, then I invite you to scroll through the blog and see all of the wonderful, free templates we have for you. This one is the most popular so far. Please, do Pin our images!
Take a peep at this fun project! I've designed an apron template. You can use it to cut and use traditionally or once again, you can use the tiff format provided and create a digital apron like the one here. Find out more about this project, see the tutorial and grab the free template so you can get scrappy, too.
