Meet Emily Moore!


Describe your crafting style: I'm a paper crafter/ card maker.

Your favorite must-have crafty tool(s): Sizzix Big Shot for die cutting (& paper!)

Something new you have learned recently: I recently used metallic flakes on a card and it added so much texture and beautiful color/shine! I really loved it and will be using it more!

Something you are scared of trying: I'm not sure why, but I am very intimidated by the rub on transfer sets but think they are so beautiful and love watching people use them!

What inspires you to create: I tend to get a lot of anxiety, and through that, I’ve learned creating things specifically with my hands, things I can touch & detailed designs with paper are what I really enjoy and what keeps my mind busy. It helps put any anxieties I do have to rest. 😊

BIO: My name is Emily Moore & I love handmaking cards! I have an amazing, supportive husband, and a giant beautiful Bernese Mountain dog named George. I get very excited about pretty paper & love making detailed designs using die cuts, stencils, and any new techniques I can find! I used to work as a scrapbook teacher at Scrappy Chic in Livonia, but the pandemic allowed us to move up north more towards family (& A Cherry On Top!). I also recently made a career shift from finance to working at A Cherry On Top and absolutely love it. Come, stop by & say hi! You can find me in the storefront!



Here are some of the beautiful cards that Emily has created!



You can find more from Emily on her Etsy and Instagram! Stay tuned throughout the month to see more projects and inspiration from her!

June Guest Designer  

Meet Andréia Piccolo

My name is Andréia Piccolo, I’m Brazilian, the mother of 2 lovely boys who made me want to tell their stories and create photo albums even more. Because of the scrapbooks I made by demand and the classes I teach nowadays, I can tell I do what I love to do. 

Thinking about my love for scrapbooking I’ve noticed I spent more time in my life doing scrapbooks than not. It’s been more than 17 years of creating albums for me, my family, my sons, and many clients all over Brazil.

I own a creative studio with my sisters, Lilian and Elisa, and once again I’m grateful for scrapbooking because I’ve always dreamed to have them by my side as partners. I really believe it’s not only about paper, it’s about making memories and being thankful for the moments that passed by.

Describe your crafting style: Layers and layers are part of our style. Most of the projects are created with a mix of different paper collections and some details done with craft tools.

Your favorite must-have crafty tool(s): without a doubt, a paper trimmer. 

Something new you have learned recently? Cut many circles in a half to create a rainbow.

Something you are scared of trying? Create bags and fabric projects using the sewing machine.

What inspires you to create?  LIFE! and the fear of forgetting special moments.


This layout was made using products from Maggie Holmes' Round Trip collection



Other Products Used:

Red Bakers TwineRed Eyelets, Crop-A-DileFrame Punch Board

Large Elements - Traveler's Notebook  

By Jody Compton

Hello crafty friends! Jody Compton here, the guest designer for February!  Today I am highlighting an easy way to make a big impact in your Traveler’s Note Book. I am using the beautiful Fernwood collection by Vicki Boutin.  The Cherry On Top Crafts store still has plenty in stock!  


 I started by fussy cutting the amazing flower element on the paper titled Notebook Paper.  It has amazing color and so much movement in the flowers that I knew I had to use it! 


 First, I started with white cardstock and took a stencil from the Fernwood collection and used a little gold paste to create a shiny background.  Gold is a great accent color that is in the collection.  


 Next, I added the large floral piece to encompass both pages.  I love how the flowers look like they are reaching for the second page.  


 I printed two small photos of a recent trip.  I promised myself to get in front of the camera more! I added a few layers behind the photos of black and white help keep those flowers vibrant.   


A few finishing details of gold chipboard hearts and the date ties my spread altogether.  

Thank you so much for your time, I hope you are inspired to use a large element in your next project!
