Scrapbooking With Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses

Laura Fiore creates 'homey' layouts with products from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses line:

The Eskimo Kisses line offers bright shades of Christmas pink, blue, maroon and green.  Perfect for capturing those special holiday moments!

Laura suggests using our Coordinating Cardstock feature when selecting matching cardstock to compliment your page: 

 "I wanted to let y'all know, too, that I ADORE the Coordinating Cardstock feature that we have here at A Cherry on Top. When left to my own devices, I often grab cardstock colors that are a little off for the colors in my patterned papers, but when I use that feature while ordering the patterned paper, it is a perfect match EVERY TIME! "

You can find the Coordinating Cardstock tab by clicking the 'info' button located next to the thumbnail image of the item.  We are working diligently to provide the Coordinating Cardstock feature to all of the newest product releases. 

View Laura's full reveal HERE.

Until next time...

ACOT Featured Feature!

Brandon (the tech guy) is always busy behind the scenes making an even better place to shop and hang out!  His 'to-do' list is literally years long!  Kristin and I probably add to that list on a daily basis.

This week, Brandon finished a feature we've wanted for a long time.  You can now choose the number of products you'd like to view per page and how you'd like to view them!

Like to see lots of products in a row or per page?  Select 'Grid' then select how many items per page you'd like to view.

Like to read lots of details with larger product images?  Select 'List' then select the number of products.

What does this feature mean for you?  Less clicking and more viewing!  The loading time per page may depend on your viewing preference as well as your computer's speed.  Take this into consideration when making your selection. 

A big 'THANKS' goes out to you - our customer - for always letting us know what you'd like to see change or improve at!

~Until next time!
