Ice Cream Corner Blog Hop


I hope you are enjoying all the great projects being shared on this blog hop. Thanks for taking a minute and hopping over to me!

The Ice Cream Corner suite is one of my favorites from the mini catalogue and I've had so much fun creating with it since mid-December.  I've used it to offer a super fun virtual retreat for my customers in January and I've participated in workshops using this set with other demonstrators.  It is one of the most versatile sets of the season and I can't wait to see all the projects showcased in this hop!

I'm sharing two projects with you today - one I created for January's retreat and one I created during a team mystery card event.

This first project is a gift card holder - it is a quick and easy project with a great wow factor! I was inspired by a project Elaine Schader shared awhile ago. I love gift card holders - we often use them as a little thinking of you or thank you gift.

This one is perfect for a card from Dairy Queen or your favourite local ice cream shop.  (If you ever visit Winnipeg, you must try Licks or Chaeban which are a couple of our favourite local haunts 😉)

Measurements are:

 DSP -  2 5/8” x 3 ¼” and 1” x 6” for flap

           Cardstock: 2 3/4" x 11", scored at 3 1/2" and 7 1/2"

The second project I created blindly during a team mystery card event.  If you haven't had the opportunity to participate in a mystery card activity, you definitely want to give it a try!  I'm including a couple of versions of this card. The mystery card activity was based on a design by Sharon Armstrong.  I made a few adjustments because I didn't like how much reveal there was on the layers of the original. That is the great thing about projects - you can tweak others ideas and make them more in your own style.

If you want to make your own version of this card, you'll need the following measurements:

Card base - 4 1/4" x 11"
Score at 5 1/2". Cut the front of the card base in half (at 2 1/8") up to the score line and then cut along the score line to remove.

Basic White - 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and 2" x 5 3/8"

DSP - 3 different patters - 2 pieces of each cut at 2 7/8" x 2 11/16"

Use a stamped or punched shape for your greeting and embellish as desired. 

Have fun while you keep hopping on to the next demonstrator on the list.
