Did you know July is National Ice Cream month?! Isn’t that absolutely fabulous? What a great excuse to throw an ice cream social. I’ve joined with a selected group of bloggers who are apart of Cricut’s Design Star Competition and we are throwing a virtual Ice Cream Craft Social! Now I typically use printables (like this ice cream printable party or this one) for my parties, but with the arrival of the Cricut Explore, I thought I would design my own ice cream party paper decor. All items were designed in Illustrator, saved as SVG files and easily uploaded and cut using my Cricut. It is such a fun new way to use my design skills. I started by designing a party hat covered in ice cream and sprinkles which lead to a coordinating garland. I couldn’t stop there so I designed matching blow horns and large ice cream cone toppers to match. The Cricut makes it all so easy!
And do you want to hear the best news ever?! You have a change to win your very own Cricut Explore! See below for details.
And for more ice cream-themed Cricut ideas, check out my fabulous Design Star Team’s projects: Vintage Inspired Ice Cream Sign, Sweets Banner, DIY Ice Cream Cone Wrapper.
Cricut is giving away a brand new Cricut Explore each day until the end of July. All you need to do is upload a photo of any project you have made – (it doesn’t have to be made with a Cricut!) – and use the hashtag #cricut and #imadeit on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Tag me too! @lovethedaydsigns on Twitter or @lovetheday on instagram
