We're Keeping This blog Live and Starting A New Site

Howdy readers,

I've finally managed to get my site all set up.  Whoo hoo!  The Home base will be the blog and you'll also find a page with our store information and a page with a gallery full of our custom albums and pages that we've designed, that you may also purchase.  More to come, I'm sure!  I'm considering a page just for our freebies as well, but there are just so many.

I hope you pop over and check it out, today!

We're still doing Traditional Tuesday with a hybrid twist on occasion and of course, we'll always keep Freebie Friday posts, too.

Love For Layout Templates Blog Hop, Father's Day Templates, Free Templates and Free Dad's Day Printable Card

Welcome to The Cherry on Top.

We are always thrilled to have you stop by whether it be for inspiration, a laugh, our fabulous free scrapbooking and craft goodies or tips, tricks, tutorials, etc.
Today, we've got our contribution to a Love For Layout Templates blog train, which I just know you are going to love.  This round of templates is absolutely amazing.  I've downloaded them all myself!  We've also got a free printable cardfor dear dad and thought we'd show off our templates that make scrapping for pop a breeze.  Keep scrolling for the link for today's free template.



Are you new to digital scrapbooking?  We've got several blogs dedicated to getting you started (for FREE) and we are involved in several very helpful groupson FB to guide you every step of the way.  Check out our You Tubechannel for helpful tutorials.
Take a peek at what my team has done with the free template.  This first one if from Chris. It would make a great cover page for an album.  She used our collection from Au Naturel.




You can see that these templates are very versatile.  No dad needed.  Switch around the direction for a change up.



I love how so many of the ladies kept the original elements.  Why not?!



This is the page that inspired today's free printable card for Dad.  It's Aimee Harrison Designsgorgeous collection, Father Dear.



Here's today's free hybrid, printable Father's Day card and a simple tutorial.



Download our free printable by clicking on the preview, the last photo grouping or here.
This is how it should print out, but if you are savvy with your software, you will be able to adjust the jpg image to your liking.  I've designed it to easily print on 8x11 paper.



This is what the print out looks like. Ready to be folded in half and the edges cut off.

If you want the card to fold, I've left the top half for you.  You may cut along the edges to your desired look or fold it in half first, so you don't make any mistakes and then cut.



All ready to go! So easy!



These our the templates we just released yesterday.



Here are some more manly templates if you find scrapping masculine pages a bit difficult.



The Cherry is all about getting you ready for day's like Dad's Day.  We've got many blogs dedicated just for it as well as some boards on Pinterestthat will definitely give you an arsenal of ideas forwhat to get dear ole dad.  This image below, is linked up to a blog with several free printable projectsfor pop.



If you are a template lover, then The Cherry needs to be a regular stop for you.  I'm offering thesefour templates for FREEfor my newsletterreaders.  I'll be putting the links in the weekly mails all throughout the summer.  If ya miss one, no worries.  You'll be seeing them again until September, when they will join The other template in our shop.



Here is the link for today's FREE TEMPLATE.

I hope you'll join the groupfor templates as well as the groupwhere you post the pages you scrapped with our templates.

New Travel Scrapbooking Pack, New Rad Dad Templates and Freebies

Welcome to The Cherry on Top.

We've had one heck of a busy week so far.  Traditional Tuesday has more, new 52 Reasons Why I Love You cards and links for freeFather's Day printables and ideas to inspire you for the upcoming day.  Today, we have TWO new releases.  New templates and a great add on pack to our Au Naturel kit.  We've got our typical freebies from us and other designers around DigiLand, too.  Enjoy!
I used our new travel pack that coordinates with Au Naturel for your free calendar for June.  This pack has many items that will work perfect for your travel, vacation or city trip pics you want to scrap and there's a vintage touch to the pack as well.



Cameras, clock, vintage travel ephemera, stamps, luggage, slide, coins, compass, map and travel themed papers.  You can see by the preview that they coordinate perfectly with Au Naturel.The add on is only 1.99.
Last week I gave readers these free coordinating flowers.  They'll go perfectly.  I dig the slightly masculine touch, too.



There is also a free, beautiful word artto tie everything together.  Your pages are going to be so gorgeous.  I've designed this entire collection for a custom scrapbooking album I'm making for a client.  If you are interested in a custom album, give us a shout at lmtroch@excite.com. We've got example pages on the site under Custom Gallery.



Let's see a couple of pages from the team.





Rachelle mixed up both packs for this page.



I just had to design some Dad's Day templates for you.  I know it's tough not doing flowers on your manly pages.  Personally, I use flowers no matter what, but I often try to challenge myself and leave them out on my masculine layouts.  I know there are many Scrappy Sisters that do not use flowers on pages with guys and they are often stumped by this limitation.  I've got a pack of Manly templates in the shop and thought I'd add another.



Of course you can use these templates for any theme.  Change out the letters or get rid of them entirely and you can scrap any photos.  That is exactly what I've done.  I'm in the middle of another custom order and I used these templates for a few of the pages.  I've used my own pictures. Here they are.



I used our stunning kit, Revel In Retrofor these pages.  This was a 50 year anniversary party for my lovely in-laws.  I am not pictured dancing here.  Hehehe...I don't dance!  At home only.



Here are the pages from my team.




Which one is your favorite?!  I do love the large lettered one and I like the uniqueness and customizability of this last one.  I also dig the pages with multiple photo spots.  When you want to print an album, those pages can start to add up.  So multiple photo spots can save you some cash-o-la.
Some alternative types of elements that you can use on your manly pages are metal bits, hardware, mesh, wire, circles, leather, string, paint splat, brads and buttons, wood always looks great, sporty types of elements...
This is my other pack of templates from the shop.  I used nifty goodies from Kim Cameron Designs.  You can find them in her shop, Daisies and Dimples.



Speaking of Kim Cameron, she's been busting our booties with kits releasing, today.  Let's check those out.
Flaming Bay is such an awesome kit and Kim's made a really cool coordinating template that will be free at the Digital Scrapbooking Studioon the 9th in a chat.  You won't want to miss that one.  I used it two different ways.



See how creative you can get with it?



I'm all over fun, tropical kits like this.  I do love all of the fancy drinks and there are so many flamingos in here, too.  Check it out by clicking on any of the images.  This bottom one uses my free template I'm giving away to newsletter subscribers. I'm giving away four of them, all summer long.  If you miss one, don't worry, I'll be posting the links over and over until September.




Kim also has two fantastic kits that coordinate with one another to make an even more fabulous, huge collection of scrapbooking awesomeness.  Hehehe...But for REAL!  Sizzling Summer and Sizzling Summer Nights is just way too much fun.  I used the "day" pack above.  How perfect for bbq's and family picnics or Dad's day ideas.
Below is the night version.  I'm so terrible at taking night or even dusk pictures.  As you can  see you don't need to have night pictures to use it.  I really, really love my page.  My guys in Germany, playing in the Mosel River nestled between the mountains.  I used Kim's grunge styled edges and several other stamps and splat.  Way too, fun!!!



I just had to show off Rae's beautiful page using our templates from last week, Floral Fantasy.  It is exquisite and I'm sure the goodies come from the Sweet Shoppe.



Aimee Harrison has a collection that will blend magically with our Rad Dad templates.  I used the basis of my page fortomorrow's freebiefor Hybrid Saturday.  With just a few changes, I turned this page into a card.  Come back tomorrow and download it for free. Father Dear has absolutely everything you need for your pages dedicated to dad.  We celebrate Dad this weekend, so I wanted to have something ready before then.  You've got plenty of time to print, cut and have something nice for your dear dad.



Robyn has a lovely coordinating freebie for her newsletter subscribers.  I know she often has freebies on her blog, too.  The image is linked up to where you can sign up.



Scrap from France is also doing a train of freebies.  Check it out!



Scrappy Sister Ednara sent me a few links to some of her favorite places she likes to find digital freebies. Creative Fabricaand the Daily Art Hub.  My go to spots are Design Cutsand Creative Market.

Oh!  I nearly forgot!  Also on tomorrow's blog we are taking part in the Love For Layout Templates, again and I have to tell you...the templates this round are really, really awesome.  Do NOT miss them. Mine is going to be fantastic for any pic, but especially for boys and or masculine shots you want to scrap.

Thank you for stopping by The Cherry and as always, Happy Scrapping!

April's Free Printable Calendar from The Cherry On Top

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We have moved to our site where our blog is our home page because I'm all about blogging.  Ya just can't shut me up and I've got so, so much to show you in hopes of inspiring you and getting you to get your craft on.  I hope you'll follow us at thecherryontopdesigns.com.

Without further adieu, here is April's gorgeous, printable calendar. Eek!  I'm loving the calendars so far and I hope you are, too.  I even love the photo this month.  Birds are my thang.  These colours are so soft, pretty and have a wonderful natural feel about them.  After quite possibly, the coldest winter I've suffered, here in Belgium (coming from Florida), I look very forward to the freshness and sunshine that comes with spring.  The rebirth of the outdoors.  The birds singing gayly at the earliest of mornings.

The coordinating kit, Begin Again is also in the shop this week due to a goof up in the scheduling.  Hehehe...  You'll be able to design fabulous scrapbooking pages, cards, planners...digital goodies are so wonderfully diverse.  You can design anything with them.  Ooh!  A springy banner would be gorgeous with this!

 free printable calendar for April

This is what Carol and Rachelle have done with Begin Again.  Honestly, I was scrolling through my wall and found one of Rachelle's pages and thought, "Wow!  That is so pretty.  I love that rose so much.  I wonder what kit this is?"  Then saw that the post was from my team's group.  DUH and BUAH!  Hehehe...




Isn't it just so lovely?!



These are our other coordinating calendar kits found in our shop, Kreative Design Studio.
