We All Scream for Ice Cream

Creative Circle Blog Hop Resized

Welcome to another edition of the Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring Liz Holloway’s latest 3D creation – the Ice Cream Parlor.  Did you enjoy the theme Sandy used for her shop?  Let me tell you – when I began working on mine, I had a general concept in mind of how I wanted my set to look, but somewhere in the middle of the creative chaos, this project took on a life of its own and I think I even amazed myself at how cute it ended up being!  So I won’t keep you in suspense any longer – here’s my version:

beelinestamping.com 8-5-15AThe longer I worked with the pink and white theme, the more this reminded me of my darling little Granddaughter and thus, Karly’s Sweet Treats came to be.  Here’s a recent pic of my muse:

IMG_5165Don’t you just love that little face?  She was nibbling on an iced animal cookie and has some of the icing all over her chin – the sweeter the kiss, I say!

Ok – back to the Ice Cream Parlor…  Despite the adorable exterior, this is actually a box that opens and the cards I made to coordinate can be stored inside the box!  The building sign acts as a handle that you can lift the top with.  Take a look…

beelinestamping.com 8-5-15CCleverly disguised, eh?  I just love it – it’s my favorite project so far!  What’s that?  YOU want to make one too?  We would love for you to do that.  Click on over to Liz’s store where she is selling the pattern for $$6.99 

We knew you’d be just as delighted with this box as we were, so Liz has given each member of the hop permission to give one lucky winner a free pattern!  For your chance to win, leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite Sweet Treat is.  The winner will be chosen at random on August 10.

Ok – now off you go to see what Liz did with the project.  Stop back over the next few days and I’ll have close ups of the box and each of the cards with details on what Stampin’ Up! products I used on each one.

Here’s a little video Liz made on how to construct the box.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Don’t forget to leave a comment for your chance to win the pattern!

    What a wonderful project to honor Karly! Great use of colors and textures. Favorite treat next to grandchild time – cupcakes and your version looks delicious!

    Ohmygoodness!! That set of cards is ADORABLE and Karly is even more so!!! 😉 I love all that pink!

    As yummy as the cupcake & sprinkles look, my favorite treat at this time of the year is ice cream (due to our 110 degree plus weather)!

    Thank you so much for sharing…and for the chance to win! 🙂

    Love the cards and sweet shoppe! Adorable!!!

    I love all sweets and if I had to pick a favorite it would be chocolate. 🙂

  11. Lyn C says:

    Sweet colors and I love the cards that match. This is such a cute idea.

  12. I really love what you did. On one of the other blogs I wrote my next one would be baby themed. Then I come to yours and you did one for your granddaughter. I just may have to do one for my newborn grandson! My favorite sweet treat is dark chocolate!

    Adorable–both your sweet shoppe and your granddaughter!

    I am a big sweet eater, so it is hard to pick a favorite treat. I like anything with caramel, especially Russell Stover. I also love brownies and cheesecake. As for ice cream, coffee chip is my favorite flavor, but Carvel is my favorite ice cream cake.
