Crazy Freebies for NSD Weekend

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We are getting totally scrappy, again.  All weekend long we will be sharing freebies, freebies and more freebies on all of our social outlets.  So make sure you bounce around and grab them all, all weekend long.

I've recently started playing with template design and well...I'm a bit addicted.  I had no idea it was so easy and so much fun to do.  I also didn't realise how popular they would be.  Yay!  Today, I've got another free template and it's a super, duper one.

I love, love, love to show off digital papers from my uber talented designers and what better way then to have your layout layered up with fun shapes.  As you can imagine it takes a long time just to get that background perfect.  Now, you don't have to fuss.  I've done the hard part for you!  You can always duplicate the template, delete all of the elements and start a fresh layout with just that awesome background.

We are freebie fiends at The Cherry On Top.  So of cou…

Free Tea Bag Envelopes and Template From The Cherry On Top and BoomersGirl Designs

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 nicel…

The Versatility Of Digital Templates And Some Free Ones

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We've got another scrappy edition for you where we will be focusing on templates and how to use them in different ways.  We've got some super scrapbooking kits to high light, links to free goodies as well as a new, free template for our wonderful fans.

With a recent acceptance on two digital scrap teams specialising in templates, we thought we'd show off some less conventional ways to use templates so that you can get a lot of use out of yours.

Templates are also CHEAP!  Seriously, you can pick up templates for $1 and get really good deals on bundles of them.

This first layout is showing off the free template we have for you as well as the newsletter freebie from Mscraps and HeatherT.  Read further to find out more.

Cute, eh?  Click on the image of the preview and go grab it!

Here's another layout using MagsGraphics, Praise kit and showing off Brenian's new templates, Sweet Days.  I've got a couple of screen shots to demonstrate more of …

Dirty Laundry Do's and Dont's

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We're starting a series on laundry.  There are just so many aspects of laundry and we want to cover them all.  Laundry is a huge part of our lives and we're here to see that it's not the most difficult or dreadful part of it.

We will cover the basics and go in the order of the entire washing process. From storing, to washing, detergents, alternative soaps, folding, ironing, putting it away and even more.

We will start where the laundry starts, as soon as it leaves the body.  Where does it go?  On the floor? In a basket or hamper?  The very best place for the dirty washing is a well ventilated, easy to carry basket or hamper.  Damp laundry, if left in a non ventilated contraption will not only smell, take forever to dry, but may also draw mildew.

Be sure it's everyone's habit to get all of the dirty wash in its proper place.  This might be the one and only thing I can actually get everyone in the house in to do.  I have hampers in everyone&…

Tah dah!  Pretty amazing, right?!  Take a good long look at all of that fantastic gorgeousness.  This kit and the bundle is on a fantastic promotion for the moment.  You can get ALL of the goodies for under $6.  I know, right?!  Click on any of the previews, below and grab these goodies while they are this cheap.

A nice variety of alphas.  I used the puffy, polka dot and the green gel one…

Spirit Within From LouCee Creations And A Free Template

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We got a start to another series of free templates for you, scrapping inspiration and a look at a gorgeous new kit from LouCee Creations available at PickleBerryPop.

I was taken the moment I saw these colours and gorgeous goodies in LouCee's newest kit, The Spirit Within.  So rich, luxurious and unique.  Totally dreamy elements and fabulous papers, too.

This was actually my second layout.  I used some of my favourite photos from a trip to Germany last year with the camper.  This boat still sits deep in my heart.  I want it!  I just saw it again last weekend and was hoping it would have a for sale on it.  Hehehe...No luck!

This is how my layout started and I prefer this one over the first layout,  It's not quite as extravagant as the layout above and it also illustrates how versatile templates can be.

You don't always have to use every thing on a template.  Delete elements, papers, shadows, turn them, rotate them...the possibilities are endless!

If y…
