New Artistic Style Scrapbooking Templates and Inspiration Along With A Project Life Freebie

Welcome to The Cherry On Top.

We've got new templates in the Kreative Design Studio.  Take a look at what I and my lovely team has designed with them.  I've got more new templates from Dagi's Temp-Tations paired up with lovelies from Paty Greif as well as my two pages from the Studio's Layout Artist Competition.  Oh!  There's a sweet freebie or two in the post as well.  If you are the recipient of our newsletter and have downloaded the coordinating mini from Trolla Bolla, today's freebie and an upcoming freebie are going to be a sweet addition!

Here they are!  Now, that's something a bit different, right?  We should always be pushing ourselves artistically, intellectually and working on self improvement as well.  Better is better, right?  Hehehe...Start thinking how you are going to scrap up these lovely pages and get an eye full of inspiration from me and my mega talented team.

I used the Digi Chicks blog hop, Treasured to scrap my lovely boys.  My pictures are not the best of quality, but it doesn't stop me from scrapping them.  I pulled out the lovely shades of green and blue and did not use flowers.  I kept the page neutral and boyish.  These templates can help with that if you find it challenging.

I'm in love with XOXO from Made By Keuntje.  I scrapped a kind of funny pic of me and the hubs.  Now, that I look at it here, I think my page can use a touch more green for better balance.  Hehehe...

I mentioned I have a few new ladies on the team and some free lance ladies, too.  This page is from Sarah.  How about all of that gold on the black?  Pretty fab!  I hope to see more pages from Sarah.

Theresa scrapped these super cute and funny photos.  Someone loved the pumpkin guts and someone else did NOT.  Hehehe...How funny?

And now for something completely different...I've got a huge project at hand, that I want ready for you by November and I needed masks.  I wanted a specific shape and couldn't find any Commercial Use in the shops so figured I try to make some on my own.  I've put them in the shop for a song.  Add them to your stash so you can start blending, today.

Last week we released these Hallo-What templates.  I've got a few more new pages to show off.

Robin made a simply beautiful page, too.  I can't believe all of my ladies used the exact same borders.  I thought for sure they would switch them out.  I LOVE that!  These borders gives your pages super dimension and texture.

Dagi had your album covers in mind when she designed these.  What a great idea!

If ya follow The Cherry, then you know we have entered the Digital Scrapbooking Studio's Layout Artist competition.  Shoo...hehehe...What was I thinking?  Hehehe...I get two free kits a week and a lot of practice.  They've got a play along version as well.  I think I'm much better suited for that one, but what the heck.

This was my Artistic entry.  Aren't these colours so awesome?!  Way out of my comfort zone and loving it.
