Elena’s Ice Cream Party

It’s party time again! Elena designed adorable decor for her daughter’s eighth birthday party with a sweet ice cream theme!

Elena’s fun ice cream theme starts with the adorable party invitation! I love how she added ice cream cone details to the Louie’s 123s number 8! She framed the customized die cut with a Mini Picture Frame!

The sweet Stitched Party Banner die cut from Gotta Have Gingham – Ruth paper continues the cute theme with Louie’s ABCs spelling out the guest of honor’s name in ice cream cones!

Elena used Copic markers and a Copic-friendly pen to add the brilliant details to the die cut letters!

The Scalloped Treat Box favors get the ice cream cone treatment too! Elena used Paper Bag cardstock for the “cone” and Ballet Slippers cardstock for the pink “ice cream” which was fussy cut to look like a drippy ice cream cone! This cute party favor is finished with a Tiny Tag and a greeting from How You Bean?! To add the multi-colored sprinkles, Elena cut apart the group of 3 sprinkles in the Sweet Friends set and stamped them individually in Merman, Celery Stick, Grape Soda and Peachy Keen ink!

What could be better than cupcakes baked in cones and frosted to resemble ice cream with colorful sprinkles! The cute flags are made with our Everyday Sentiment Banners!

The water bottles carry out the ice cream theme with more decorated Louie’s 123s!

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing party ideas with us, Elena! I love this super “sweet” ice cream party decor!

A Mermaid Party by Elena

We have more wonderful inspiration from our Spring 2017 release to share with you starting with our Big Giveaway Post this Friday!

Elena joins us today to share a perfect idea for a little girl’s mermaid-themed birthday party! She created a banner, cupcake toppers and water bottle labels featuring Mermaid for You! Watercolor Wishes paper collection provides the pretty pastel color palette!

 Elena decorated the bottles with the labels found in our Fancy Box die set! She added the names using Milo’s ABCs.

 The cupcakes carry out the mermaid theme with simple Stitched Circle toppers and cute Mermaid for You images!

 Louie’s ABCs and Stitched Party Banners spell out the guest of honor’s name!

I love how Elena used large and small Stitched Party Banners and more Fancy Box labels to make her Mermaid Party banner special!

Thanks for inspiring us with another fabulous party idea, Elena! This one is every little girl’s dream!

Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
