Easy Hybrid Accordion Album with Tutorial

Image
Welcome to The Cherry on Top's Hybrid Saturday.
Two weeks ago we made this cute spring card for mom and today we are looking at the insert, accordion album and pocket.  When you keep reading, you'll find an  in-depth tutorial, with tips, tricks and techniques to make scrapping easier, faster and prettier.  You'll also get a look at some recent hybrid projects as well as traditional ones and we are giving you a peek at a future hybrid freebie for the kids.
Here's the card I designed with 3D elements using Paty Greif Digital Design's new Spring In My Garden Collection.  This  collection is proving to be quite a success.  It's getting Pinned like crazy.  If you want to take a look at the tutorial and the card, click on the photo below.
You can also see today's project, accordion mini.  Keep scrolling to get a look at the tutorial.  It's made very quickly, easily and with few materials.


I designed a simple template and deleted it.  Ugh!  I have the new PSE and …

Freebie Friday With The Cherry On Top, Throwing Some Scraps Around And MagsGraphics

Image
Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

You know you are in for a treat when you see a title like that one!  Nearly every Friday designers release new goodies.  I'll be showing off two new kits, providing lovely inspiration and I'll let you count the freebies in today's blog.  There are THAT many!

Let's dive right in, shall we?

These colours, right?!  This is Throwing Some Scraps Around's newest kit, Everlasting.  Always gorgeous goodies, a lot of flowers and the papers are really great, too.  I scrapped our most recent trip to Germany.  My hubby has it in his heart to get a vacation home there.  I'm thinking, "Great!  Two houses I have to clean and maintain".  Hehehe...



Voila!  Gorgeous, right?!
Here prices are very affordable.  Wink, wink...;)

Throw Back Thursday Mother's Day Idea

Welcome to Throw Back Thursday with The Cherry On Top.
On Thursdays, we bring back previous freebies that you may have missed and sometimes we open links to even older, popular ones.  Today, we thought we'd bring back these tea envelope printables in case you needed a sweet Mother's Day present for the up coming holiday.  They are free, pretty and you only need paper, scissors and tea to make them.  Scroll to see the two sets we have and when you click on the image, you'll get sent back to the blog with the free download.
For this week's photo, we're not throwing back as far as we did last week.  This little guy here will be 11 tomorrow.  So, I wanted to do a throw back for his birthday.

Here is one of the examples of free printable, tea bag envelopes using the designs from Alexis Design Studios.  If you love this kind of kit, click here to see the store.

Here's what the print out looks like.  So easy!  Download and print.  All you need are scissors and tea to fini…

Graphic 45 Block Tower Gift Set

Image
Welcome to The Cherry On Top.
On Wednesdays we show off fun, traditional scrap projects.  For the most part, we keep it easy and fast.  Not everyone dedicates the time to lengthy projects and they are often hard to even get started if you're not sure how long it will take.
Today's project can be assembled in well under an hour.  The project could take considerable time depending on how you want to embellish it.  I kept it fairly simple so as to save time.
Scroll through this thorough tutorial to see how you can design a tower like this, but with your creative stamp.  We will provide you with a free template and in detail, step by step directions with tips and techniques to make scrapping easier and more beautiful.

I wanted a collection that was versatile, bright and good for any occasion.  I chose Graphic 45's Bohemian Bazzar.  Are these colours not fabulous?!  I got this idea from Pinterest.  It could make a fun party favour or gift or you could just put it on a shelf and adm…
