I am always so inspired by the colors and icons of Echo Park Paper collections. When I saw the Summer Dreams collection for the first time, I just knew I had to make something that would incorporate all of the darling popsicles, ice cream cones, and snow cones. So an ice cream truck gift box it was!
I added the speech bubble stickers
to the front window, so that it appears like the people inside the ice cream truck are having a fun little conversation.
The back of the truck opens up so that you can place a fun treat inside for the recipient. I think this would be a really fun way to wish your child’s teacher (or anyone else) a Happy Summer Break!
It looks like you can walk right up to that window and order one of those delicious ice cream treats, doesn’t it?! The flamingo
is there to greet you and take your order.
Does this project get you excited for summer?! I am definitely ready to don my flip flops and grab a yummy, frozen treat!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you! It’s the day of hugs and kisses and I have a couple of lovey-dovey projects to share with you using my Silhouette Cameo machine.
This first project is just a sweet little home decor item that you can create to brighten up a corner of your home, or as a gift for a friend to display in their home.
I cut out the heart puzzle images on several 6×6 patterned papers from the Carta Bella It’s a Girl collection. I also added an offset white cardstock layer underneath to help them POP a bit. They are adhered to the background paper with thin foam squares.
I then added the script “love” word on top, and adorned the corners with a pretty floral image.

I WHALEY LOVE YOU Gift Box & Card
Isn’t this little whale favor box adorable?!! He was pretty easy to put together. You can find him in the Silhouette Store. I added some hearts on thin wires as his water spout for a Valentine touch.
A sweet little Whale card to accompany him was the perfect touch! I cut the sentiment out of black vinyl to make adhering the sentiment easy-peasy.
He opens up so you can place a yummy treat inside!
I added glitter paper for his tale for a touch of sparkle! … Everything “holiday” looks better with a touch of sparkle, don’t ya think? *giggle*

Wishing you a very Happy Valentine’s Day! I LOVE my readers! And LOVE this creative community! I’m so glad we have the opportunity to inspired and uplift each other this way!
Have a great day!
You gotta love a holiday that breaks up the winter doldrums with the purpose of telling everyone around you that you love and appreciate them! For that reason, Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays!
I’m up on the Echo Park Paper Blog
today with a sweet little treat door hanger all dressed up for the Valentine holiday!
I hand cut several of the flower clusters from the Fresh Baked Floral Paper
to use as accents around the acetate window on the front of the door hanger, as well as on the handle.
The top of the door hanger is capped off with a cheery, yellow bow with a red button in the center along with a couple of tags. The woodgrain “Sweet Like Sugar” tag is from the Alpha Sticker sheet
and the “Made with Love” tag was handcut from the Made with Love paper
I can’t wait to leave this for someone and surprise them on Valentine’s Day! So fun!

Welcome a new neighbor, or let an existing one know how much you appreciate them, with this adorable Kitchen Mixer Gift set.
The Pastry Stripes paper and cute icons on the Kitchen Essentials papers were the perfect choices to use to cut the accent pieces.
The bowl was created with the blue polka dot Tea Time paper
. I added some white scallop felt trim from my stash along the top edge and then filled it with chocolate candy kisses.
The base of this mixer lifts up, so you could even add more chocolate kisses to the inside, if you’d like!
I added a fun cluster of elements to the top corner of the mixer as a focal point. I just love the way the doily stickers look with the kitchen utensils peeking out here-and-there. I then added die cut flowers created with the Flower #3 and Flower #4 Die Sets
to both the cluster and to the mixing bowl. Buttons tied with twine in the center of each flower add a homespun feel!
I hope you enjoyed this project! Thank you so much for stopping by!
