New Torn Templates and Your Free Calendar For August

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I'm so torn as I write this blog.  Hehehe...I cannot believe that it is so nearly August!  Where did July go?!  I don't know about you, but I look so forward to summer and August means it is almost over or is only half way through?  Pessimist or optimist?  Hehehe...

Also torn, are today's new templates.  They are available in my Kreative Design Studioon Etsy and in the Scrappy Sistersshop.  Super for masculine, modern or any kind of theme you want to scrap.  Don't forget that our templates can easily be used to design cards and other printable projects that you've got in mind.  Simply change the size of your canvas, if you are working with PSE, select all of the layers and use the corners to bring in all of the layers to fit your new page.

Check out the pages we've designed using I'm Torn templates.

The ladies did such a beautiful job with these fabulous templates, don'cha think?!
This is your new, free, printable calendar…

Reason #24 Why I Love You Mini Album

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I've got reason number #24 for you.  "I love that we can trust each other."  That's pretty darn important and not always easy to do.  Certainly worth making this album.
Go to this blog for Reasons 1-27 and the blank cards.
I've also been including other hybrid and traditional scrap projects that might interest you.  Here's another...

I took this digital template and turned it into a traditional page.  The template is still freeon my old blog.  You might love it over there, too. I had that blog for many years and it's full of fabulous free stuff and all kinds of scrappy projects and pages that will most definitely inspire you.

I have not forgotten that free mini album template from a few weeks ago. Find it here!  Start thinking what you're going to scrap with it and get a plan.

You can always join in on scrap-a-licious fun in our groupon FB, Instagram and our Pinterestcould have you scrapping and crafty for years with all …

Free Time Scrapbooking Templates

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We got new, artsy templates for you, a bit of inspiration and a look at a few new products from your favorite designers in DigiLand.

Sometimes simple is better.  Especially, when you want your photos to be the main feature.   Artsy pages also look great for manly, teenage or boy themed pages, too.  I'd certainly think of just the right kit to go with templates like these.  Matching up templates and kits isn't always easy.  Choose your elements carefully and consider that artistic style templates are typically modern and sparse in their aesthetic.  Personally, I dig bright colors with my artistic templates.  Black and white or largely black and white can give a great effect, too.  Of course, there are NO rules when it comes to art.  Feel free to express yourself as you wish.

This is me and I used Aimee Harrison's Oceana collection for my update profile and wall photos for my FB account.  Perhaps you just like the matting and photo spot of the …

Pixel Scrapper Commercial Use Blog Train for July

Toot!  Toot!

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I'm so thrilled you stopped by.  I just love scrap-a-licious hops like this one.  So many fabulous goodies to try out.

I really love stamps and I love flowers and all things floral, too.  I designed these stamps for today's train.  They would look great as an anchor for a cluster or maybe a paper design?  You decide how you'd like to use them and enjoy.

I've got a couple of other Commercial Use goodies in my shop at Etsy, Kreative Design Studio, though templates are my thing.  My most popular items are my Friendly Frames and Photo Reel templates.  They might be just what you are looking for.
Something like this?

I've used these digitally and traditionally.  They are super versatile.

Here was my hybrid project with the mini reels.  I've got a full tutorialon how you can scrap one up like this with our templates.

If you are all about the free stuff, then The Cherry should be your go to stop.  We post freebies every sing…

Project Life Style Templates, Choose Joy, New Releases and Freebies

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Grab a cup of Jo or something else you love and get comfortable.  We've got some serious scrap-a-licious pages to show off with our new templates, Choose Joy as well as other pages from my favorite designers in DigiLand.  I've got a few links for new freebies, too.

The first two pages are my own.  I thought I'd try out inserting one large photo in the many photo spots to see how that would turn out and, WOW!  I love it.  Give it a try yourself?  I'll briefly explain how I did it in PSE.  I highlighted all of the grey photo spots, removed the layer style then merged them and clipped in my photo.  It was SO easy to do.  I wanted all of my matting to be the same color.  Otherwise, it might look too busy with the already busy background, so I did the same thing.  High lighted all of the matting, ditched the shadows and merged.  Boy, is that a huge time saver!  Just don't forget to add your shadows back.  I used Kim Cameron's kit, Coas…
