Hybrid Scrapbooking with Aimee Harrison Designs and The Cherry On Top

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.
There are just a few tiny changes this week.  April 1st is a big day in DigiLand.  Mostly, because it's the first.  Hehehe...A lot of new scrapbooking products come out on the first and as many of you know, there are often blog hops that day, too.  Since we also contribute to a few blog hops and we have so many new products to show off, we are pushing up our typical Hybrid Saturday to Friday and our Freebie Friday to Saturday.  Though, I do have some freebies at the end, too.
So make sure you get your pretty little butts back here, tomorrow for a huge blog full of inspiration by means of pretty pages, the newest and most awesome digital scrapbooking products and links to many freebies.

I've got Aimee Harrison Designs in the spot light, yet again.  I'm showing off her newest collection, Orange Spice and some of her templates.  I've also got an idea for an easy hybrid project you can whip up in minutes.

Above, I scrapped up my nieces and their m…

Scrapbooking Challenge, From Digital To Traditional

Welcome to Traditional Tuesday with The Cherry On Top.

We started blogging a tutorial on how to get what I call this caterpillar effect for your photos.  I gave all kinds of tips, showed off different ways to place your photo strips and today I've got the finished result with a few more tips.

My apologies for my failing camera.  I hope I can get it fixed.  Ugh!  This is as clear as I can get the darn thing.
I decided to go with this look for my strips.  Click here to see many other ways to place your photo strips.

Try to use contrasting colours with your matting and your background to make it pop.

It is so difficult to see the details on my page.  Bummer!  I used a large, wooden alphabet and glued it on the same paper I glued my matted photo spots for cohesion.  I used some coordinating washi under th…
