Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We've got such an awesome blog, today!  It's packed full of page inspiration, new releases from some of your favourite designers, new templates, free stuff and a sale announcement.  Because this blog is SO long, I'm peppering it with freebies and links to freebies.  Pay attention!  Hehehe...

That's right!  Kreative Design Studio is on SALE at 50% off.  You can finally check out your basket for our final sale of the year.  Even our newest templates are in the promotion.

Check out the awesome pages from myself and my amazingly talented Creative Team.

Tammy is an absolute star.  Just look at her fabulous page.  I've got the kit and designer names at the bottom of each image, if you are interested.

Jodi from Throwing Some Scraps Around is working her magic with our new templates and her new collection, Autumn Joys.  I'm loving all of this texture.  Aren't you?!

I just can't stay away from Paty Greif's collections.  They are beyond fabulous.  This one is a bit older, but it's so fab.  A touch of whimsy and imagination makes for one sensational page.  That's my oldest 10 years ago.  He never used to sleep in the car.  These are probably the only two times he did.  Hehehe...Even on our two day trips to Spain, he doesn't sleep!

Check out how we've used the Circlicious templates.  Tammy showed off several of her designers beautiful papers in the individual circles, while I used the same one in mine.  It makes it look a bit less busy if you have paper that doesn't well blend well.  Tammy's papers blend magically so it totally works for that page.

I can't resist scrappy my beautiful nieces.  We have such a blast when they spend time the family. This one is an absolute angel.  She gets on splendidly with my sons and turns and heads of the young lads, too.  Hehehe...

So many scrappy sisters have commented how these templates will look great for music and album themed pages and I couldn't agree more, but as you can see from all of these pages, it's not requirement.  Hehehe...

I'm using Aimee Harrison's new collection, Indian Summer.  I was all over these gorgeous colours and Aimee is definitely a top paper maker so I knew her collection would work with my templates.  I like this pop of black with the bright and Aimee's word art is SO awesome.  I used it as an embellishment for this cluster.

Cindy did use the record concept on her fabulous page and colours definitely top it off.  What a super looking kit, too.  A great combination!

Jodi's used our DSD freebie for this absolutely beautiful page with our new templates!  Keep scrolling to see this weekend's freebie!  See how she used her papers?  It makes the page flow so nicely and it isn't too busy either.

I've got a few new pages to show off using our Falling templates.

This one is mine using Aimee Harrison's stunning collection, October's Opal.  I wanted to use the titles in the templates.  They are so handy when titles and journaling isn't your thing.


Magalie's pages are always extraordinary and I love seeing her beautiful daughters and their adventures, too.

Hilary is killing our templates!  She's like me and goes back to older templates she loves like our popular, Men In Mind templates.  These are really fantastic when you don't want to use flowers, but your not sure what else the heck to use.  Hehehe...I love the challenge, myself, but with our templates, there is no challenge.  With templates, you can even use our shapes for your pages.

These project life kind of styled templates make scrapbooking really, really fast and easy.  I love that.  Especially, when you scrap as much as I do.

I've designed a free template for Kim Cameron Designs October challenge in the fan group on Facebook.  You can click on this image to get there and get the template and join the challenge.  You don't have to use the template.

 free template for Kim Cameron Fans

Kim Cameron Designs is going crazy in her shops throughout DigiLand.  She's got so many new items for just $2 as well as BYOC deals. (Build your own collection.  Now, I know!  Hehehe...)

 Binge Watching templates

I've been scrapping Kim's goodies like crazy.  I'm SO glad I love her design!  Hehehe...  I'm not a big TV person, but I did see the potential of these templates and kit for photos that would totally work.  Check out how I used them with a spin.

 Binge Watching templates and kit

Change the wording so it fits your needs.  I used the marquee tool to get rid of the word "episode".  It's just a few steps and it's gone.  If ya don't know how to do this, I just so happened to make a video showing how to use the marquee tool.  Check it out!

I took all of those yummy treat embellishments and voila!  A super messy, cute page using a template and kit with a totally different theme in mind.


Just think, once you get rid of the TV, all of the things you could do with this template!  I love that TV, though!  Hehehe...

 Binge Watching

I changed the wording again to make the template fit with Kim's other kit, Owl Be Reading.  Instead of using a book related photo, I did this.  No photos and a short list of my top favourite books.  Not easy!  I'm an avid reader, but I am a picky one.


 Owl Be Reading

I'm so in love with my next page and that little cutie, too.  Hehehe...It's Kim's new kit, Wake Me Up and Aimee Harrison's Patterns A Plenty templates.  It all just flowed right into place, but when ya have just the right papers, it all looks super, quickly.

I used a twist, again.  I'm not a coffee drinker.  If I drink even a sip, my heart goes a pitty patter for hours and I'm already an out of control ball of energy!  Hehehe... I'm like a stumbling, bumbling tornado when I have caffeine!  hehehe...

 Wake Me Up

Yes!  Yet more goodies from Kim Cameron!  Hehehe...  I'm totally loving this chic twist of Halloween.  Even if you're not crazy about the holiday, it's still gorgeous for other themes.

 Midnight Pumpkins

The templates and kit is Kim's. I'm always a fan of those star burst backgrounds.  They draw all of the attention to the photo.

 Eekably Cute templates
These templates are part of the BYOC deals at D&D.  When you spend a certain amount of $$$ you'll get free stuff.  I use Kim's Commercial Use template all of the time in my templates.  I've used these as well for a free template coming very soon.  Hint...hint...

 Haunted

Eek!  I LOVE, LOVE theselittle monsters in Maggie's new Little Monsters kit.  They are so darn cute.  I thin I used nearly all of them in this page.  Hehehe...  I used a nifty glow effect on my ghost to match the glow of the eyes on Maggie's paper.  I also used an eyeball from one of Maggie's bellies to put on my ghost.  It's also a part of Made By Keuntje's super templates.

I dig this close up shot of my little guy, though a touch on the scary side, it's his happy face.  hehehe...
