A Cherry on Top March YouTube Hop

Hey friends! I am so excited for another hop with the A Cherry on Top Design Team! This month we are playing with some type of texture paste, mousse or glaze!

I used the Vicki Boutin Let’s Wander collection and an one of her stencils! I pulled out her CreativeFX Prism glaze and spread it through the stencil. This stuff is so creamy and so fun to work with! It has a beautiful color and sheen to it!

I fussy cut some florals from the Sunshine and Smiles paper which is one of my favorites! I created a vertical design and I just love how it turned out! Working with the glaze and stencil is so much fun! I love the texture and interest it gives to my layout!

Check out all the Vicki Boutin products over at A Cherry on Top! Head on over to my YouTube channel to check out my process video HERE!

Hooked on You | A Cherry on Top Design Team

Hey friends! Today I am sharing a super sweet layout using the Echo Park Cupid & Co collection I received from A Cherry on Top Crafts. I also used some of the Sweet Talk collection from Simple Stories.

I recently took some photos of our pittie Lola Bean cuddled on the couch! She is totally obsessed with our new Valentines pillows! She loves this long skinny red one and she cuddles with it every chance she gets. She is not allowed to be on the couch unless there is a blanket down or we give her permission so she pulls the blanket down from the arm of the couch and gathers the pillows and makes herself a nest.

I had this cut file already cut that says Hooked on You and thought it would be perfect to go along with this photos. I backed the cut file with papers from the Echo Park Cupid & Co paper pad. For the background I used some white textured cardstock and used some Lindy’s Stamp Gang to add color. I popped up the cut file on some foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and placed it onto the page.

I used embellishments from the Cupid & Co collection to embellish around the layout. I also fussy cut some florals from one of the 12×12 pattern papers. I pulled out some enamel dots from Simple Stories Sweet Talk collection and sprinkled around my page.

I found a sweet epoxy flair from Scrappin Happy Studio and added to an embellishment cluster I created on the cut file. I love the pinks and reds on this layout and the little bits of black.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure to head on over to the A Cherry on Top shop and check out all the sweet Valentine collections available!

Color Me Happy | A Cherry on Top Design Team

Today I am sharing a new layout on the A Cherry on Top Crafts blog! I used the Paige Evans Go The Scenic Route collection to create my layout and a cut file that I had in my stash of cut files.

I wanted to challenge myself to use a bright colored background and one with a little bit of pattern! One thing that helps me is using just one collection. I know that everything is going to coordinate so that part is already done for me. Since titles are another one of my struggles using a big title cut file is always a go to starting point for me.

I really love how this page turned out and the blue background really helps this layout pop! The Go The Scenic Route collection is so full of color and can be used for so many different projects! It is definitely a must have collection! You can check out the collection HERE in the A Cherry on Top shop! To see my completed layout and get all the details head on over to the blog post at A Cherry on Top HERE!

 

 

Weekend Vibes 12×12 Scrapbook Layout | A Cherry on Top Crafts Design Team

Hey friends! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! Today I am up on the A Cherry on Top blog sharing a layout using the Paige Evans Go The Scenic Route collection.  This collection is so fun and colorful and I have seen it used for so many different types of layouts!

I found a cut file from Lacey Ann Designs that I thought would be perfect to go along with the photos. I backed it with a single piece of pattern paper from the Paige Evans Go The Scenic Route collection. I wanted to add the cut file to the page at a diagonal just to switch it up a bit and love how it turned out. I used a piece of white American Crafts White Textured cardstock as my base and trimmed it down to 11.50×11.50 which is usually the size I use when I want to mat it on a piece of pattern paper.

I pulled out both of the Go The Scenic Route ephemera packs and pulled a bunch of the florals and butterflies out to add to my page. I like to add some elements directly on the cut file. I think it brings attention to the large title piece. Popping these elements up on foam adhesive gives lots of dimension to the page. One of my favorite foam adhesives is the black foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L!

I used one of the puffy stickers and layered it on the butterfly adhered to the cut file. The puffy stickers in the Go The Scenic Route collection are so pretty and I just love the soft feel of them! If you have not yet picked up this sticker back you can find it here in the ACOT shop! It is really a great set and can go with so many other different collections. To finish up my layout I matted it on Paper 8 from the collection. I love all the colors in this paper and think it really makes the layout pop. To see the full layout head on over to the A Cherry on Top blog HERE!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have been inspired to use the Paige Evans Go The Scenic Route collection! Have a wonderful day!

You should have arrived from Laura’s Blog! If you need to start the hop from the beginning you can check out the full blog hop list down below.

 

This month we are using mood boards as our inspiration.

I pulled inspiration from both boards. I loved the soft pink tones in the first board and falling snow. In the second image I loved the stars so made sure to add some stars on my layout. I went into my stash of products from A Cherry on Top and pulled out some older but just as fabulous stuff! I really loved the pink in the Honey & Spice collection from Heidi Swapp so I used some of it to back a new cut file from Cut To You. I thought the Color Flow paper would be the perfect paper to back all the trees! Using one patter paper to back all the trees at once made it quick and easy to get this file backed!

I also pulled out some of the Crate Paper Snowflake collection which is a beautiful winter collection! There is a specialty paper in this collection that has stars with gold foil on it that I thought would be fun to fussy cut! I used some of these fussy cut stars to back the stars on the trees of my cut file.

I wanted to create something soft for my background so I used some vellum and tore it into strips and adhered down to a piece of white American Crafts Textured Cardstock. I distressed the edges of the vellum with my Tim Holtz scissors and love how it turned out. To add a little extra to the background I used some gold mist to add some splatter to the background.

I pulled out just a few embellishments form the Snowflake collection like these little houses and tucked them in next to the cut file. I added a chipboard tree from the Snowflake collection and some word stickers above my photos! The photos are selfies from my first holiday drink from Starbucks this year! The holiday drinks are always my favorite and it is a new tradition for my daughter and I to go and get one and purchase a new holiday mug!

Thank you so much for hopping with us today! I hope you feel inspired to create with one of the mood boards we shared! If you do create a project using one of the mood boards please tag us on Facebook, Instagram or upload into the Cherry Gallery!  I hope you all have a great week and let me know in the comments if you are Starbucks holiday drink fan!

 

All is Calm Scrapbook Layout| Doodlebug Design

Hey friends! I am so excited to share my first layout using the Doodlebug Designs Night Before Christmas collection.

I used a large title cut file from my friend Lacey Ann Designs Etsy shop as my starting point for my layout! She is having a great sale right now and her cut files are as low as $0.79! I love the font and wide border of this cut file. It makes it easy and quick to back with pretty papers. I used papers from the Night Before Christmas 6×6 paper pad and some from one of the Doodlebug Design petite prints. I wanted to pull in some of the soft pink color in the collection.

I added a few mini icon stickers around my photos and one of the banners in the Night Before Christmas chit chat pieces. When using a big title piece like the cut file I also like to add die cuts and stickers around the cut file.

The little mice were perfect to add around my page! To finish off the page I trimmed down my white base to 11.50×11.50 and matted it on the beautiful Snow Magical pattern paper from Night Before Christmas. I used my We R Memory Keepers typewriter to type out my journaling and cut into strips to add to the bottom of my page. Head on over to the Doodlebug Design Blog to see my completed page using the new Night Before Christmas collection.

I really wanted to create something fun to document my November 2020 in and the Simple Stories Cozy Days collection was perfect! I will not be doing a daily grateful album but I will be documenting things that I love and that I am grateful for. I have set up my album and it is ready for photos and journaling and I am excited for this month!

To create my album I pulled out some of my favorite dies from my stash. A lot of these are just loose dies I keep in a zip pouch that I have had for years but I will leave links down below to similar dies I can find for you in the A Cherry on Top shop! I used different papers from the Cozy Days collection from Simple Stories. I just love all the colors in this collection. It definitely has a cozy warm feel to it and has many pieces that are perfect to document what you are grateful for.

The cut apart sheets from the collection are great to add to mini albums for journal spots or for photo mats! You an also just use them to add a pretty element to your book. Not every page has to have a photo on it. Including pretty images or a pretty die cuts to the album is something I love to do and adds some interest to your book!

I used a pretty rose gold binder clip to hold all my pages together and tied some ribbon and twine to it for some texture.

I can’t wait to fill this sweet book up with photos and journaling from this month. Once it is all filled up I will do a flip through on my blog and YouTube channel! For a last minute touch a saw some new cut files released from Cut to You. So I cut some out on some American Crafts white cardstock and backed them with papers from Cozy Days and added them to my album!

To check out the Cozy Days collection head on over to the A Cherry on Top shop! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my sweet little mini album! If you create your own album I would love to see it! Tag me on Facebook or Instagram! Your next stop along the way is Natalie!

Jack | Doodlebug Design Ghost Town

Hey friends! Today I am up on the Doodlebug Design Blog with my very first layout using the fun new Ghost Town collection!

I created my own cut file in the Silhouette Design Studio so that I could back it with papers from the Ghost Town 6×6 paper pad. I really wanted a big title piece that stood out on the page. Liam recently received a Jake Skellington stuffed animal and he absolutely loves him! He takes him everywhere and the Nightmare Before Christmas is on repeat in our house!

I wanted to create a simple layout using mostly black and white since Jack is dressed in black and white. I added a pop of orange just to have some color but I love how it turned out!!

The doodle pops in this collection are adorable and the Loads of Fun pop just had to go on this layout! To see the full layout head on over to the Doodlebug blog to check it out!
