Thinking pink

Another snowstorm pummeled my mountain town on Saturday — dropping 10 inches on top of the 2 feet we already had. I had all my scrap things packed in my new rolling tote, organizers and shoulder tote. Despite the storm, I was going to the next town to crop with my friends. I didn’t get 5 minutes from my house when the windshield wiper in front of my face stopped working! I had to turn back. How did I spend my cold, snowy, February Saturday? Thinking about ice cream!  While my husband and daughter made homemade ice cream (vanilla AND rocky road), I made this!


This past summer, we took my daughter and her friend to Kennywood Amusement Park, near Pittsburgh. On the way home, we stopped in Canonsburg, Pa., at Sarris Candies for their ice cream. The portions are huge! The prices are low. The girls each had a milkshake.

This week’s challenge at Heart 2 Heart is to Think Pink. In my opinion, pink can be overwhelming in a big block. So I broke it into candy stripes, added an “awning” of a border cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Juniper cardstock and a “tablecloth” of patterned paper from the Brushed paper pack. The Canary photo mat is empty because the photo of my daughter and her friend is 12 snowy miles away at the photo lab, where I was going to pick it up on my way to the crop. The Sarris ice cream shop color scheme is red, white and gold so I used Desert Sand cardstock as my base and mixed cranberry and white cardstock in with the Pixie for the candy stripes.

I cut the title, “Sweet Things”, from two different Artbooking Cricut Cartridge titles — 10 Things and a banner that said Sweet. I snipped off the 10, glued “Things” under “Sweet” and I was in business.

I cut the ice cream sundae and milkshake using the Fast Food Cricut Cartridge — they’re the only non-CTMH thing on the page.

I popped up the awning, title and ice cream sundae and milkshake with thin 3-D foam tape.

The other Heart 2 Heart Design Team members have their own ways of “Thinking Pink” — I hope you’ll click over and check them out.
