Print | Printable Ice Cream Party Invitation

Printable Ice Cream Party Invitation | Squirrelly MindsYes! It’s that time of year again! The week leading up to national ice cream day is always fun filled around these parts. This is the third annual year of the ‘ice cream party’, which always include a party invite printable for you (check out year 1 and year 2), and ice cream recipes. I can’t wait!

Printable Ice Cream Party Invitation | Squirrelly MindsFor this year’s ice cream party invitation, I took the watercolour ice cream and popsicles I painted the other day and turned it into a sweet and simple little invitation for you. Just fill in the information and send it out to your friends!

Printable Ice Cream Party Invitation | Squirrelly MindsYou can host your ice cream party a number of ways – either provide a buffet of store bought ice cream and toppings, or if you’re super gungo/crazy (like me) whip up a bunch of homemade ice creams of various flavours. I’ve purchased all the supplies and have just started ice cream making. It takes a week to get all the different flavours made as I can only make one per day.
Whatever way you choose to throw an ice cream party, it’s a darn good excuse to get together with friends and indulge.

Personally, I go for for anything with peanut butter, caramel, sea salt, chocolate…or all 4 of those.

What is your favourite ice cream flavour?

Ahhhh summer. Time to set up temporary shelter and sleep in the great outdoors! Personally, I’m having a hard enough time sleeping on a very comfy mattress with this bulging belly, so I won’t be camping this season (sad face). Instead I’ll have to live vicariously through you.

Maybe you’re more prepared than I, but whenever I go camping I always manage to forget something. Whether it’s soap, paper towels, or an axe, whatever I forget turns out to be a big deal when out in the middle of nowhere. I figured I couldn’t be the only forgetful camper, so I created a little checklist (based off this guide) to help you keep tabs on what to pack when you’re getting ready for your evening(s) of roughing it outdoors.

Of course it’s just a guide. If you’re just camping down the road you won’t need a flare gun, but it’s a helpful list to check over and make sure you’ve got your necessities. Plus it includes a little watercolour by yours truly!

And have a FANTASTIC time camping!

My favourite camping spot is Sombrio beach. It’s over a kilometre hike in (‘easy 10 minutes’ on the website is a lie) and is in bear country, but the incredible night sky is well worth the trek. One special camping trip I even woke up to giant humpback whales migrating south. No words can describe that feeling.

What is your favourite camping spot?

Yessss it’s July! I love this month. For starters, today is Canada day (HAPPY CANADA DAY FELLOW CANUCKS!) and it’s national ice cream month. It doesn’t get much better than that. But July is also the month of one of my favourite watercolour gemstones (and the featured gem on the front of the 2015 calendar) – ruby!
This gemstone has been around for centuries, and has always been highly valued. Ruby signifies love and passion along with harmony and success.

When me and a bridal party I’m a part of were discussing our wedding crafting get together, it made me think “craft parties need to happen more often!”. So I grabbed my sprout and several crafting items and whipped up a little invitation for you. Friends, start crafting up a party.

Last month I took a bunch of veggies and used the sprout to create a collage, that I then made into an iron on transfer to create a tote bag. As mentioned before, photographing items and manipulating them is insanely easy on the sprout, so I wanted to do that again with this craft party invitation. It was pretty well the same set up. What I love about the mat though is that you can get it wet – essential for cleaning up spilled glitter. I had a lot of fun scanning all the items, and learned something new.
Sprout Tip: To reduce the amount of shadow, place your items on the top of the mat. This is as close to directly below the camera as you’ll get.

Since I already went the collage route last time, I wanted to play around with the Sprout a bit more, so I opened up the Martha Stewart Craft Studio. The program has a ton of cute graphics you can use to create cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, and other fun paper crafts.
The Martha Stewart app has 5 themes, each complete with virtual paper selections, stamps, stickers, borders and cut outs. I couldn’t resist the adorable pictures (or ‘stickers’) of macarons and other delightful little treats, so I decided to play and make a birthday party invitation.

Sadly I couldn’t get it to convert to a file large enough to give you all a printable, but I still wanted to make one and show what is possible with the program. I imagine this being a nice alternative to scrapbooking – and much greener too. And the cute little images are really great for creating paper goods such as invitations.

I mean really, don’t those ‘stickers’ just make you want to head straight down to your nearest patisserie? Who wouldn’t want to go to that birthday party.

So depending on the look and feel you’re going for, there’s two ways to create invitations on the Sprout. Personally I like the full control by using the computers own “Create” program, but you just can’t beat the cute options through the Martha Stewart app.
Now, download your invitations and start crafting!
