Reason #16 Why I Love You Mini Scrapbooking Album

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I've got your new reason card ready for you.  Thanks to all of you leaving lovely comments and for following along on this lengthy project.  I've also got a peek at this Saturday's free printable for Father's Day.  It might be just what you need.


Click here to get all of the reasons and the blank cards.
We got several projects for dad on the blog.  Visit The Cherry's original blogand do a search for "Father"or you can visit our many Pinterest boardsdedicated to gift giving.  Buying for menis not always easy.  So we dedicated a board specifically for it.  I've married a BBQ master and have a few plans geared towards the backyard BBQ lovers.  Anything so I don't have to cook!  Hehehe...
Perhaps these ideas will inspire you and definitely check out our blog and Pinterest for much, much more.
I designed this free, printable.  You can back in a photo if you'd rather and hang this on dad's favorite beverage.

This was a really fun project!  I made my dad a mini album of my boys since he lives far, far away and doesn't get to see them.  It's the shape of an apron and all done up with a manly touch.  Grab the free template and check out the tutorial.

Here's another free template and project you can whip up rather quickly.


I had a blast scraping up this page of my pop.



This is a page of my hubs and my youngest.


If you want to scrap some manly pages, but the flower thing is getting to ya, consider our Men In Mind scrapbooking templates. Look Mom, no flowers!  Hehehe...

I too find it challenging leaving off the flowers, but there are a lot of other good substitutes.  Find some on this page.  Chains, sprockets, hardware, mesh, splatter, scatter, ribbon, manly items, metal bits...

Are you reading our newsletter?  I gave away the first, free templatein this series and I'll be giving the rest throughout the summer months.  I keep them short and only once a week.

Floral Fantasy Scrapbooking Templates and Awesome Freebies

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I'm trying to figure out what the heck is going on with my computer because it's so, so slow and I get kicked out a lot.  We've cleared it all out and started it over and it is scary.  Hehehe...Starting all over is never fun, is it?  It could certainly be going better, but at least it is going.

It has not in any way, deterred my creative flow.  Hehehe...Still designing like crazy and very thankful for all of the backups we have installed.  Make sure you are doing the same.  I have 2 EHD's and a home server.  Triple coverage, Baby!  Hehehe...

I've got some awesome templates and made a couple of cool videos showing different ways to use them, but the videos have blank space throughout.  They were SO cool!  Ah, well.  What can ya do, right?  Keep motor'n on...

The new templates are really, really cool.  You can replace the layered flowers with actual flowers from your kit or stash or you can clip in pretty papers and in essence, design your very own flowers.  Use buttons, brads, gems, shadows, textures...there are so many options.

Let's check them out and see what my lovely team has done, too. I've got new, nifty freebies for readers and newsletter recipients, too.  You totally have to see these awesome, free templates I'll be giving out to newsletter subscribers.  Keep reading, get inspired and get scrappy with The Cherry.


I played with Throwing Some Scraps Around new kit, Brighter Days.  Bright, indeed and full of fabulous flowers and foliage.  You are going to love it.


Take a peep at what my talented team has designed with Floral Fantasy.


Laureen is also on Aimee Harrison Designs team with me and she used Aimee's latest collection, Everlasting for her page.  There is a really beautiful FREE MINIyou can hopefully still find at the Studio.


Rachelle also used Throwing Some Scraps Around new kit,  Stunning, eh?!


Aimee Harrison Designs has another gorgeous collection out this week.  It's from her 360 collection.  You know I just had to have this one.  I've got tons of pics from our recent trip to the South of France and Spain and Aimee's goodies are my kind of goodies.  This is also her coordinating template.  Scroll further to learn about a pretty freebie from Aimee.


Isn't it fab?!  Look at all of those super goodies!


Let's see what kind of freebies we've got on tap for you, this week, besidesAimee's mini.
How gorgeous is Throwing Some Scraps Around freebie?!  These colors are just de-lish!  Hop on over to Jodi's site and grab this beautiful, free quick page and check out more beautiful pages with Brighter Days.


With all of these new privacy policies and weekly posts, I thought essential to offer my beloved newsletter readers nifty gifties.  It's work being a devoted newsletter reader!  You have to go to your e-mail, read your e-mail and eventually delete it, too.  I'm ever so grateful to have such wonderfully, devoted readers and I feel like you deserve the best.  Therefore, I've designed some really fun, bright templates and will be giving them away sporadically from now and throughout the entire summer.  Ya won't know when they are coming, so it's essential that you open those letters. I may hint in the group, if I remember.  Hehehe...If you missed this first one, no worries.  I'll be offering them again over the next three months.

I hope you decide to keep in touch with The Cherry via newsletters.  You can sign up using the button, at the top of the page.  We won't use your information for anything, but sending the e-mails per your request. It's a sure way not to miss out on our many happenings and gain some awesome, free scrap stuff.
I've designed some free flowers for you.  I used goodies from our Calendar collection.Click on the image for the download.


I bet today's blog inspired you and that you can't wait to get a hold our new templates.  They are going to be so fun to play with!  Enjoy these super freebies and keep The Cherry close by.

Happy scrapping!

52 Reasons Free Printable Mini Album #15

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We are back with Reason #15 in our year long series of why I love you.  Once again, excuse my out dated image here.  That to do list is just SOOO long.  Hehehe...I've got the image linked up to the free png card.  If you are just joining us, it's never too late.  We are keeping the links live all year long.

 Check out our Traditional Tuesdays and get the ones ya need.  If you want to put your own journaling, then you'll only need the blank ones and you can find them here.
 CLICK HERE TO GET REASONS #1-22.


I'd love to know how you are going to bind your album.  I thought putting them in a Project Life style album or page would be pretty sweet.  I'll have to show ya some pictures of what that might look like.
If you love the traditional scrap or hybrid scrap, check out our My Musekit and printbles.  We know funky 80's kits are hard to come by.  At least with our printables you can print as much as you like.  You'll never run out of those cool embellishments and our journal cards will also be great in your Project Life albums, too.



We've got a digital version and the printable version.  So make sure you're getting the right thing when ya visit the shop or give us a shout if you have issues of any kind.
I'm currently working on a very cool Father's Day edition for next week.  I'm so, so excited about it.  I'll be taking a smoking, different route, but I think you'll love it.  See ya then!

More Teasing Scrapbooking Templates and Digital Freebies

Welcome to The Cherry on Top.

We've got more templates in the shop today, delightful scrapbooking inspiration and a few fabulous freebies from other designers around DigiLand and a few you may have missed.

We just had to do another round of Strip Tease templates, per request!  They seemed to be a bit popular with our scrappy peeps, too.  Check out what I and my awesome team have done.  Even a few other scrappy sisters couldn't resist playing.  I hope you won't be able to either.


As with many template sets, there often seems to be a favourite and that last one caught most of the girls eyes.  I'm actually partial to the first two.  Hehehe...I wonder if I'm the only person who also loves things that few others do.  For instance, you make a page and are like, "meh".  Then you post and everyone loves it?!  What the heck is that?!  I swear it happens every time.  Hehehe...
These first three are my pages, using the new templates.
I'm making an uncoordinated album of our most recent trip to Spain and the south of France.  I used a mega, mega fun new kit from The Kit Cart Designs, Mermazing.  I did not let all of that pink and purple discourage me.  There is a lot of blue, orange and green in there, too.  The kit is awesomely fun!


This is a picture of a beach in Spain in full spring bloom.  I used another, new collection from Aimee Harrison Designs, Everlasting.  Again, it's really fabulous.  I wanted these luscious layers to pop and come off of the page so I tweaked them a bit.  Keep the torn shadow on your lowest, but get in there and add some more depth to the papers.


Here are some pages from my lovelies.


Here is another picture of the same beach in Spain.  I used Aimee's everlasting collection and a gorgeous FREE template from Made By Keuntje.  My gal Dana celebrated her birthday on Mother's Day and gave her fans FOUR free templates.  Well, guess what?  They are still available and you can grab them from her lovely site.


We had another lovely page turned in for our May challenge in our scrappygroup.  We've got a free templateyou can use and if you do all 12 challenges, you'll get a pack of free templates at the end of the year.  There are no dead lines for the monthly challenges.  Only the dead line on December 31st.  That's when all 12 challenges need to be finished.


This is what the template looks like.



Here's the freebie from last week.  Showing off our very pretty, Au Naturel collection.



This lovely, free quick page is from two weeks ago.


We put up the latest free printable card for our 52 Reasons, year long mini album project.   No worries if you are just joining us or if you want to jump ahead.

If you are all about the free stuff and are a digi or scrap addict, then The Cherry is the place for you.  Follow our social spots and you will not feel alone with your addiction.  Hehehe...We get it!  Use our buttons in the side bar and be sure to Subscribe to us over on You Tube.  We're getting our video library in good shape!  It's full of tutorials and process videos so you can learn to scrap digitally, too.
Make sure you're following us for the next few weeks.  We'll have a big announcement and more awesome free scrapbooking goodies.

Happy scrapping!
