Multiple Photos Scrapbooking Layout and Free Template

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Last week we scrapped up some fun photos with this photo reel template.  It's still free on last week's blog. I've got the link for you at the end of this entry. Today, we're scrapping the rest of the page.  Join us in the process, get a few scrappy tips and hopefully, some inspiration to go and scrap your own page.

I used the rounded square template on each of my photos and placed them on the circular disc.

Though these circle templates are over a decade old, I still use them ALL of the time.  They are from Fiskars.

They come with graduating circles that were perfect for this project.

Last week I went into more detail on the process of making a page.  These are some very old scrapbooking goodies from my stash.  I even kept the packaging from this collection because there were a few pieces I could cut out and use as embellishments.  Hehehe...

You can also see above, a very rough sketch.  I strongly recommend that you have some kind of layout in mind before scrapbooking.  Otherwise, you'll waste a lot of time.  Hit up Pinterest or another scrapbooking gallery.  My group on Facebook is a decent spot for inspiration and this blog even better still.

This collection matched so well with my photos.  First, the colours are repeated in my photos and second, it is youthful, like the lovelies pictured.

You can see the built up circles with black edging.  I'm thinking I could have saved all of the black paper and just inked around all of the edges, but then again, this layering does add more depth to my page.  I inked around all of the elements and the page itself.  It's the first time I ever inked around the entire background and I really like the result.

These letters are some kind of felt and it got all over the place.  Not ideal, but they do look pretty cool.  Use thick, double sided foam tape to make your pages pop and bring you goodies, literally off of the page.

 Free Template

Above is the free template so you can try this project out for yourself.

 Photo Reel Templates

These are the templates available in my shop.  There are NINE different templates to play with and they are just 1,99!  They will make such an excellent addition to your scrapbooking stash.

I've got some really fun projects coming up.  Freebie Friday I'll be diving into how to change up your templates.  There will be a lot of tips and tricks and every Friday, we feature freebies, too.  Saturdays are reserved for hybrids.  I'll be showing off my PuurFect Cute Cards and how to turn them in to a mini album and show off your puurfect babies.

Thanks for checking out The Cherry!

The PuurFect Scrapbooking Kit And A Free Hybrid

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

I'm nearly as excited as I was yesterday with the release of my collaboration with Made By Keuntje.  Hehehe...I hosted a Scrap A Cat And Chat event on Facebook on Saturday where every 15 minutes, I gave a portion of this kit until they had all of the pieces.  Then for the lovely ladies who posted their finished layouts, they also received a free template.  

The event lasted an hour and it went by so fast!  We had fun chatting about our kitties and showing off all of our photos and stories about our fur babies.  I hope ya join me next time we have one of these events.

I recently put this collection in the shop.  It's the PuurFect kit and I have coordinating PuurFect templates and Cute Cards, too.  Keep reading to see the collection, view The Cherries lovely inspiration and see what you missed yesterday.  Of course, there's that freebie at the end.

There are 40 elements and 12 papers, four design and 8 card stock papers.  Each pack is just ,99 cents!

Here are the cutest of cute cards.  They're perfect for Project Life style scrapbooking and they come in png format so you can use them traditionally or digitally.  Take a look at what The Cherries have done.

I scrapped this one up to show that you don't need kitties to play with the collection.  That's me and JJ in a rare shot of him looking into the camera.

I also scrapped this one using my You Rock!  templates and the cute cards in place of a photo spot.

 PuurFect Templates and Kit

Dana used the PuurFect templates for her layout, above.

Stay Magical Scrapbooking Collection From Made By Keuntje and The Cherry On Top With Unicorns, Glitter and Rainbows, Oh, My!

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

Eek!  I'm just a little excited about my collaboration with Made By Keuntje!  This collection just embodies who I am.  All of this bright, vivid colours and whimsical unicorns and rainbows.  Eek!  It's packed full of fun and frivolity.  So many flowers, glitters and papers to choose from and that's not all.  We've even got coordinating templates, quick pages, stackers AND planner goodies, too.  Ya see why I'm so excited?!

Keep reading to check out this totally awesome collection, get an eye full of inspiration that'll have you dying to scrap with it and consider downloading my tiny freebie.  Hehehe...

Holy, wow!  I just realised that the little girl here is on the toilet!  Hehehe...  What a fun, fun page Jodi from Throwing Some Scraps Around has done.  She used my template and Dana's fabulous goodies to scrap up this fantastic creation.  I can't decide what part I like best.

Let's take a peep at all of this awesomeness!

 Made By Keuntje

Rainbows, clouds, unicorns, sprinkles, hearts, ribbons...my goodness that is one heck of a pack of terrific embellishments.  Scrap your heart out, Baby!

 Made By Keuntje

Dana has designed several different paper packs for this collection.  It's so hard to choose a favourite.

 Made By Keuntje

 I'm loving the word art, too.  I'm dreadful when it comes to journaling and often the word art is just the piece that page is missing.

 Planner Printables

Here are the planner printables I designed.  A sheet full of borders or tapes, another sheet with a few more borders, some lovely journal or project life style cards, banners, buttons...Just what you need to have a really exciting planner, agenda or just plain stickers to use on anything. 

Tip:  When you print on a semi or gloss paper like sticker paper, the colours come out more true and crisp. Another tip, if your printer has a "high quality" option, use it.

The printables come in png format so you can use them traditionally as well as digitally.  I've left the shapes super easy to cut out if you don't have one of those fancy cutters.  Only 2,99 for three sheets!  That's just a buck a piece.

 Stay Magical Stacked Badges

These are my stackers or badges or whatever you decide to call them.  Don't they just sparkle and make you smile?  So much fun stacked up onto these.  I love them!!!  These would make beautiful stickers or embellishments for your pages either traditionally or digitally scrapped and just ,99 cents for six stacks.

 Stay Magical Templates

Here are my pride and joy templates.  I have notebooks and boards full of inspiration.  When Dana asked if I'd collaborate, I went straight for them.  I started with the unicorn and then sought out some designs that would accommodate rainbows and other youthful fun.  These 4 magical templates are just 1,99 in my shop. They are split in 2!!

Stay Magical Quick Pages

Is that unicorn insane or what?!  Is that not total Cherry style?!  Hehehe...Quick pages are just fantastic when you don't have time to scrapbook or you don't scrapbook at all.  A quick page is a fully scrapped page.  All you have to do is put your favourite photo behind the page, in the spot.  These pages are in png format, so they can be opened in most any software.

Print them out in your desired size (8x8 and 6x6 is my favourite size and your printer should accommodate those sizes and a 12x12 is easy to convert to these other sizes) and slide them right in a sleeve or have them professionally printed in a book via a company like Persnickety or Foto.com.

Quick pages make great wall photos and screen savers, too!

 Stay Magical Quick Pages

I wanted so badly to get a folded shadow on the yellow petals, but I could only figure out how to get them to go up and down and not left and right.  Grrr..Hehehe...If ya plan on lifting this page, traditionally, take your heart punch, then do a soft fold up the middle of your heart/petal to give your flower dimension.

 Stay Magical Quick Pages

I used a card for inspiration for this page and I scrapped my best friend's lovely daughter.  I kept the word bits generalised so you can put nearly any photo in the spot.  Even a landscape picture would fit.

 Stay Magical Quick Pages

There's one of my nieces.  Isn't she just a delight?  I bet you've got the perfect shot to go right in that photo spot!

 Stay Magical Templates

I grabbed a couple of the ladies pages to show off more of the kit and my templates.  Above is Dana's spectacular page that puts the entire collection in the perfect light.

 Stay magical Templates

Here is Marie's page.  Eek!  Just what I envisioned when I designed the template.  Look at those cheeks!  Such a fun page!

 Stay magical Templates

I cannot believe what the ladies have done with this extraordinary template.  We've got a lot more inspiration on our social spots like Facebook and Pinterest.  There is so much more to see! Magalie worked her magic filling in all of those flowers and blinging up the gemmy outline.  How sweet?!

I hope you enjoyed this entry as much as I did!  Here is your fabulous, Friday freebie.  It's for personal use ONLY.  Thanks so much for checking us out, today!
