Ice Cream Parlor Party Invitations

I'm planning an Ice Cream Parlor birthday party for my daughter and these are the invites I made for her party.

I found this SVG Ice Cream Cone file from & I cut all the different pieces using my Cricut.

I have this awesome stamp from Stampin Up! (don't know what set it is) & I used it to add some pattern to my plain orange ice cream scoop. I first stamped onto scrap paper & then onto my cone, so the pattern would be light & barely noticeable.

Here's a close up of what the orange cone looks like with the pattern.

After inking all my edges, I used my trusty Xyron to make all my pieces into stickers.
My Xyron saves me LOADS of time :)

Then I assembled my ice cream cones piece by piece.

One scoop...

Two scoop.
I alternated my colors cause I like to change things up like that.

Love the cute cherry they include with the SVG.

I figured since there was so much color going on that I needed a little white involved. After cutting them all out I noticed my edge punch and thought this would be the perfect place to use it.
This is another one of my awesome Stamp Up! punches, the scalloped edge punch.

And of course I had to ink those edges too. They were just too white :)
I alternated my inking between pink and orange since I was using different colored background paper. Mostly just cause I didn't have enough of either orange or pink on hand.

This is my newest punch and let me tell you, I'm in LOVE!
Isn't it purdy?
You'd think I was a Stampin Up! demonstrator, but I'm not, I just love punches!!
I just thought this label went perfectly with my theme, so I printed my invite & punched the labels out for the front of the invite.

As you can see, I made a couple different versions of the invites.
It's funner (I know it's not a word, but it's funner to use) that way & let's face it, whenever I start a project I don't make sure I have all the color paper I need ;)

Maybe you couldn't tell yet, but the party colors are pink, orange (tangerine like) and white.
I didn't include the back cause I didn't think you'd all care about the party details, but that's where I told guest about location, time, etc.
I'm so excited for this party myself and I can't wait & I'm not even one of the little girls!
Well, maybe I really am at heart :)

YW Camp T-shirts

I have another t-shirt to show you, that was made with a freezer paper stencil.

I'm involved with the youth in my church and this year for girl's camp we had the theme of "Rock Solid". Our group was assigned the value of "Faith" and our rock was "Diamonds".
I was super excited about that because I love shiny sparkly and I could do plenty with that rock!

  The other leaders wanted to make shirts for the girls, so they came up with the idea to have Faith on the girls shirts.
I knew we could make them inexpensively if we used freezer paper & painted the word on.

I used my SCAL software to write the word Faith & I cut the freezer paper on my Cricut Expression machine.

I got together with another leader and we painted the words on the shirts. First we tried to use just glitter paint, but it didn't show up enough, so we used metallic silver paint and then glitter paint over it.
Lastly, we had to have "diamonds" on the shirt, so we hot glued square crystals onto the shirts to dot the i.

I just love how they turned out & so did the girls!
Because we used men's undershirts & bought them in 5 & 6 packs, after all the supplies were bought, the shirts ended up being $2.00 a shirt. AWESOME!!
To see how easy these are to make, check out our tutorials posted here & here.
A shout out to Hailey for getting all the supplies & helping make the shirts!!! Thanks a bunch!!
**I would have posted pictures of the girls in their shirts, but they're all underage and I didn't feel that I should post pictures of them on the internet. You'll just have to believe me when I say they all looked darling in their shirts :)

Gift Bags

This week is church girl's camp & this is a little something I put together to hold all the girls' welcome gifts.

I bought white gift bags from the Dollartree. They were 2 for $1.

Then I used my Cricut to cut out 5.75" scalloped circles in patterned cardstock & each girl's first initial in a coordinating cardstock.

  To attach them to the bag, I used my trusty Xyron (sticker maker).
I only wish I had time to ink the edges of the paper before I made them into stickers. The edges were really hard to ink after they were attached to the bag. That's what I get for being so last minute :)

I used lots of different little stickers to spell their names so we would know which bag belonged to which girl.

Lastly, I created little gift tags that said "Welcome" and attached them to the bag in coordinating ribbon.

This year I got to work with a super awesome camp director and she had so many great items to include inside each bag:
  • Camp T-shirt
  • Plain mug to decorate
  • Plain white bandanna to decorate
  • A pretty pencil
  • Pop ring
  • Plastic ring
  • Camp song book
  • Mini plastic tiara
  • Small purse for secret sister gifts
