Easy Crafty Hybrid Gift Idea, Scrapbooking Inspiration, New Digital Templates, Free Gift Tags and More!

Welcome to another special edition of The Cherry On Top.

When there is a lot to cover, I break it up into separate blogs.  Otherwise, you'll be scrolling all day!  I hope you had a wonderfully restful Black Friday and Happy Thanksgiving, if you celebrate it.  As if?!  Today, I've got the December Buffet from GingerScraps.  Not just our contribution, but a few others from the shop.  There is lovely page inspiration for you to goggle.  A really fun hybrid gift idea from a few years ago, that I thought was worth bringing back and some more special promotions and freebies.

This is the finished off gift idea.  I up cycled some Christmas card boxes!  All I did was take some pages of my nieces that I had already scrapped over the years from Christmas, scaled the pages from 12x12 to 4x4 and...click on either image to get to the blog with the rest of the in-depth tutorial as well as ideas for goodies to put in the boxes.

You'll love how fast it all comes together and you won't have to spend a fortune either.

I used a bunch of goodies from our Sleigh Bells Ring collection.  It'll be 30% throughout the weekend and Monday at our Kreative Design Studio



If you are needing some tags for your nifty gifties, I've got some free ones for you.  The link is still live so download and enjoy.  The image will take you to another one of our blogs.

Free Holiday Tags

This is our first Buffet at GingerScraps.  I'm so happy to announce that I get to stay another month!  Let's show Ginger that The Cherry On Top deserves a spot in her awesome shop.  Upload your pages with our templates in the gallery, hang out with us in the forum and be an active participant in the GingerScraps Group.  I really appreciate all you do!

 Winter Chill

We take so many pictures at Christmas and special events and vacations, that pages like these are often necessary.  The elements are so cute, you might just want to clip in your pictures and be done with it.  If you have styles and not a lot of time, you could select all of your paper layers and just add a texture!  How efficient is that?!

Here's JJ with his Digi Birds.  He loved them, but I think you can see that.  Such a lovely playful kit from Aimee!

Cyber Celebration, Huge Savings, Scrapbooking Inspiration, Freebies and New Goods in the Shop

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Today, I've got some new templates in the shop, a huge sale at Gingerscraps, a sale in the Kreative Design Studio and the One Word Wonders Sale is also still going on, too.  Of course, we've got awe inspiring page layouts, some tips and tricks for card ideas, printables and...freebies!

Get comfortable and enjoy the blog.  We'll have another one, tomorrow!  I'll be focusing on more hybrid projects and Buffet goodies from GingerScraps.

 TCOT at GingerScraps

This will probably be the best time to shop!  Everything in our GingerScraps shop is on sale at 50% off.  The 50% off sale of our One Word Wonders Collections will end Saturday so be sure to grab those goodies while can get them at such a low price.

 Kreative Design Studio

I just had to make sure I had new templates in the shop for the big sale, just in case you've already bought all of the templates you love.


If you follow The Cherry, you probably know I have two boys.  They are both officially teens, now and they both have Autism.  They are an absolute treat!  I love making templates that reflect our everyday and these new ones, certainly do that. Of course, you can use these templates for any kind of photos or themes you want to scrap.  They are great for girls, too!  I have an example using our trip to Beilstein, Germany.  So you can see for yourself, how versatile they are as are most of our templates.


I used the Digi Scrap Parade's free goodies for my page above.



I wonder if you can see that I struggled a bit with this one?  I love these pictures of JJ playing in a tree.  I'll admit, the templates scrapped up really fast and easily, but it's the collaboration I struggled with.  It's Roots from The Lily Pad.  Perhaps it was a bit too eclectic for me?  Or maybe it would have been better suited with a feminine touch.  There were some cool artistic pieces and all of this brown so I thought it would go well.  Hmmm...

Here are some pages from my awesome team!




Teen Tude Templates
Teen-Tude and Kastagnette

I've put a lot of our holiday templates in the GingerScraps Shop.  Make sure you don't already own these.  They are included in the 50% off sale!
