Ice Cream projects

Happy Monday!  Did you know it's National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast day?  I fully support this holiday-in fact I could probably support it every day!  It needs more publicity.  I'm pretty sure it's not on the Weight Watchers plan though….unfortunately.  Our BBTB2 challenge this week, as you might have guessed, is to use an ice cream cut.  I have a few ice cream projects…..although not a full 31 flavors worth, LOL!  Check out the delicious projects from the design team over at BBTB2 and link up a project of your own!

Project #1

This layout was for some fun ice cream pictures on our cruise this summer, using Simply Charmed for the title, ice cream cone, and popsicle and Elegant Edges for the scalloped journal box.

Simply Charmed-title, ice cream cone, popsicle
Elegant Edges-jounal box
Paper/Stickers-Echo Park prints, CTMH solids
brown chalk ink
Project #2

This layout  uses the Suburbia cartridge for all the cuts, including the font.  My picture came out a little dark-it's easier to see the font in better lighting (it's a really pretty cursive).  I LOVE the jukebox cut!  My husband and I are big fans of root beer floats and I thought the ice cream cut looked like a float.

Project #3

This is scrap lifted from this card I saw on Pintererest.  I used Birthday Bash to cut the ice cream sundae and some Diamond Glaze on the orange layer and stickle to make it look super yummy.
