Sweetest Cherries Scrapbook page

 Hi everyone! I recently saw a cute scrapbook page on a Facebook Group called Scrapbooking Global -Stampin' Up! .   The original page was
made by Tricia Bellingar at 'Smitten Stamper'.  I have so many pictures in Door County Wisconsin that would be perfect for this page.  Door County is Cherry Country and we have gone cherry picking, made our own cherry pie, love door country cherry ice cream and more.  The pictures I am thinking to add here are of my kids eating Swedish Pancakes covered in cherries and whipped cream at Al Johnson's Swedish restaurant in Sister Bay Wisconsin, a must have every summer.  

My pages uses some Designer Series Paper from the Sunny Days pack, as well as Poppy Parade and Pool Party cardstock.  The Sunny Days Paper is no longer available but you could replace that piece with another designer paper, perhaps gingham or other patters. You could even stamp your own cherries with the Sweetest Cherries stamps, or use that basket weave stamp from the set.


I punched my cherries out with Poppy Parade cardstock and added some sponging to the edges to darken them. I also added a shine with a white Gel Pen. 

Behind the cherries is a circle cut with the Stylish Shapes dies. The circle has some die cut stitching around it and I wanted my banner to have that stitching also, so I had to alter a die from the Nested Essentials dies. Below is a short video on how to do that.
