Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We've got new templates, several announcements, some freebies to share as well as lovely page inspiration on tap for, today.  I'm so, so glad you're here to join us!

You probably know by now, that I just love showing off pretty papers on my templates and with today's new templates, you can do exactly that.  Just look at what I am my incredible team have done with Paper Pieces.

This first page is mine, using Aimee Harrison's absolutely gorgeous goodies 360 April.  These colors, though?!  When a collection fits the templates perfectly.  I love that!

Tammy is kicking it yet, again with another lovely page.  These colors, right?!  So elegant with a sweet, natural feel.  BoHo Wedding looks to be pretty darn spectacular.  You can find it at the Sweet Shoppe.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see the back end of winter pages.  Hehehe...This Florida girl is missing the warmth and sunshine, big time.  Ngoc's pages are always a stand out.  Cold Snap from LJS made a chilly kit still look very pleasing.

 Paper Pieces Templates

Throwing Some Scraps Around has new goodies for April out as well, today.  Rachelle scrapped her little cutie with them.

If this kit from LouCee Creations looks familiar, it's because I showed it off last week.  Now, Theresa is using Puddle Jumpers to show off her ray of very wet sunshine.

These look exactly like the blooms on our cherry trees.  Of course I have cherry trees.  Two of them!  More fabulous designs from BooLand.

Cassie's played with my cuttables, Up In The Air.  You don't have to use your cutting machines to use them.  We've got several packs our shop.  Pop over to Kreative Design Studio and take a peek.  We've got some really exciting ones that I'm packaging up, today.  They'll release for Autism Awareness day.  As you know, both of my boys are on the spectrum and I'm working on something that embodies the pain of coping with and or helping others through mental difficulties.

Totally Awesome Planner Style Digital Scrapbooking Templates and Free Digital Goodies, Too!

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We are back with some seriously phenomenal scrapbooking page inspiration, some tips and examples on how to use the new templates and links to free, digital scrapbooking goodies from The Cherry and other digital designers.


A couple of scrappy sisters asked if I would design some planner style templates and I was more than thrilled to fill their request.  I'm totally going to think up some more designs for templates like these.  I was very pleased how fast my pages scrapped.   The first three pages are mine.  Allow me to walk you through these fabulous layouts.

 Planned Templates

So many kits came to mind when I sat down to play with these templates.  It was not easy to choose.  I typed in "pen" in my "finder" to see what kinds of kits would come up and Key Lime Digi Designs, Pen To Paper popped up.  Sandy designs exquisite kits and collections.  Just look at this fabulous color palette and classy, original goodies. Last time I looked, the collection was 50% off!

You can see in my page above, that I moved around the photo spots to suit my needs and so can you.  Ahh...the beauty of using digital templates.  Take a peek at how I arranged the papers in the stack.  Make sure the surrounding papers contrast to add more interest or to make each one stand out and not just blend all in together.  Like dark, light, dark for example.  I used SnickerDoodle Design silver styles on my binder.  Even a bevel might work for you.


Planned Templates

I got SO lucky with my pictures coordinating with the papers.  There is red in the kit, but I left it out to give my page more cohesion and you know me...I go bunkers if there are too many colors.  I really thought it'd take me a long time to scrap this template and winded up feeling guilty for how fast it went.  Hehehe...Use pretty papers and journal cards in your photo spots, if you like.

Made By Keuntje and Dagi's Temptations have teamed up again, this month to offer a huge fabulous collection to document your month or season if you like.  That's the goodies I used for my page, above.  You will not believe just how much you get in this collection.  Definitely worth every penny.  Take a look.


 Lucky Ducky

Dana has a free alpha for you on her blog.  Isn't it the sweetest?!

Speaking of freebies...I used GingerScraps hop around to get a ton of free digital goodies and used a lot of them for this page.  The clips were from another kit from Aimee Harrison.  If you follow in our group, you knew about these goodies, too.  Our group is very, very active and I and my scrappy sisters share a lot of free goodies, too.  Join us there!


 Planned Templates

LouCee Creations has a fabulous, new kit out, too.  Check out Puddle Jumping at GingerScraps.  You might want to check out her blog or newsletter, too.  She often has coordinating freebies.  I've got it linked up in the side bar for you.



Now, on to the pages from some seriously talented scrappy sisters.

Ella has done the first two pages and they are beyond fabulous, right?!  Totally EEK!  worthy.  While I went for a more messy desk type of grouping with my ellies, Ella used a more traditional manner of clustering for hers.  Choose the style that works best for you or use them both.  These goodies from River Rose are stunning!

 Planned Templates

Is this next page not a jaw dropper?!  My goodness!  Not only is the design magnificent, but the products are to die for.  Kristen Cronin Barrows is definitely at the top of my favorite digital designer list.  This collection is so amazing!  Follow Your Heart can be found, here.


 Planned Templates

Tammy is amazing at mixing it up.  I find it so time consuming and I'm not very good at it.  She used all kids of items from The Lily Pad.  A lot of them come from M3 and LiLi Wee.  Pretty fab, right?


 Planned Templates

How much are we loving Hilary's pages?!  You must forgive me for all of the questions.  I am a teacher at heart.  Hehehe...

 Planned Templates

Are ya wowed or what?!  Holy wowzerz to Ella's fab page.  These goodies are totally rocking, too!  Toyland from Studio Flergs.  Find it at the Sweet Shoppe.

 Planned Templates

You know I'm loving all of the sass in Cassies page!  Get Through from Meagan's Creations is so perfect with these templates.


Cindy is just brilliant at artistic style pages and she has not let us down with this one.   Little Butterfly Wings certainly has some gorgeously unique designs.


 Planned Templates

Jarmila is a star of a scrapper.  Here's another gorgeous page from her using My Garden by Boo Land Designs.

 Planned Templates

It's A Plan is a collection from the Sweet Shoppe and if I might say so, pretty perfect for these templates.  I'm afraid to say, this collection is no longer available from Sweet Shoppe.  It was one of those deals where ya had to grab it really fast and it was gone.

 Planned Templates

Rochelle made her page in a bit more of a traditional look and it looks great!

 Planned Templates

Color Me Festive had some nifty stuff to go with the templates.  I was pleased as punch to see Michal kept so many of my ellies on her page.

 Planned Templates

I hope you like the new templates.  You'll really be pleased how fast they scrap up and how gorgeous your pages are going to be.
