Masculine Layouts With KaiserCraft Grand Bazaar  


Hello Hello Cherry Friends!  Sara with you today sharing some fun layouts featuring tween boys AND Kaisercraft’s Collection Grand Bazaar!




I saw this collection in the shop and thought those rich colors would work perfectly with some photos I had taken of my youngest son and my nephew. The photos had an urban/fall color and feel to them. 

It can be hard to find just the right line for older boys and this one was just perfect! I always go for collections with rich, earthy colors for these types of photos. 

I paired one of my layouts with one of the many, many challenges hosted here by our amazing Cherries! I chose Deanna’s Make The Cut Challenge and having some of the work done for me made my layout come together in no time. Thank you for the great challenge Deanna!



I added some coordinating cardstock and stamps from my stash. And I added some color and dimension using Nuvo drops for that little added detail. 

I even pulled out an oldie but a goodie tool - a distress tool and roughed up my papers to give the layouts a grungy feel. 



Check out the process video:

This is Us | Heidi Swapp Honey & Spice  


When I first saw the Heidi Swapp Honey & Spice collection I knew I needed it all! I love the colors and patterns in this collection! My first layout using this collection came together so easy!


I started with a piece of white cardstock and trimmed it down to 11x11. I distressed the edges a bit and added a couple tears to add some texture. I pulled out the Honey & Spice 12x12 paper pad and found two pattern papers to mat my white cardstock. I trimmed the black and white pattern paper to 11.25x11.25 and matted it on a pretty pink watercolored pattern paper from the paper pad.



I wanted to used a bunch of different papers from the collection on the layout so I pulled out the 6x6 paper pad and cut some strips of paper in sizes 2x5 and 2.5x5. I distressed the edges of the papers and positioned them on the white cardstock.



I pulled out the Honey & Spice Ephemera and added a few florals and tabs around the page. I used one of the die cut pieces as my title! I love that the ephemera package includes vellum and rose gold foiled pieces!



The photos are printed in black and white and are of my daughter Alyssa and I out shopping! I used one of the rose gold foil ephemera pieces as my title This is Us! I also added some journaling using my We R Memory Keepers Typewriter. Here is a look at my completed layout using the Honey & Spice!



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Merry Grinchmas | Bella Blvd Cut Outs  


Hey friends! Erica here with you today sharing a holiday layout using the new Bella Blvd Cut Outs! If you love the look of cut files but do not own a machine you are going to love these cut outs! Bella's first release of cut outs are all holiday themed and each package includes a variety of cuts to add to your layouts, cards, or mini albums!




For my layout I used the Wreath Cut Outs that you can find here in the A Cherry On Top shop.  I am also using the new Bella Blvd Santa Squad collection. I backed the wreath cut file with papers from the Santa Squad 6x6 paper pad. I added foam squares behind the cut file and adhered to a piece of white cardstock.



I used some of the Bella Blvd Ephemera Words and Icons to embellish my layout. I also pulled out the Snow Fun epoxy shapes to add to the layout. The photos are of my son Eli James dressed up as The Grinch!



For my title I used the Bella Blvd Florence alpha in McIntosh! I added the title to the bottom of the wreath and love how it turned out! Here is a look at my completed layout!



This collection of cut outs is so fun and easy to use! Makes creating a page quick and easy! Thanks so much for stopping by!
