3D Lighthouse

3D Lighthouse

Hi everyone!  So happy you popped by 🙂    Welcome to Wednesday and as always I have some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you today!  When I first saw the Everyday Heroes Paper Collection I immediately thought of a lighthouse, not really sure why this popped into my head but it did.  In the Everyday Hero release, I’ve been inspired by the nautical stamps and themes and living on a Coast in eastern Canada we have some famous lighthouses.  I dedicate this project to all of the Everyday Heroes who work on and protect our seas.  The lighthouse was created using the lighthouse cut file from the Seaside SVG Kit from SVGCuts.com.

Do you have an unsung hero in your life? Your champion may never have a medal pinned to his or her chest, but you can demonstrate your gratitude with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations. These epic stamps, dies and papers salute the extraordinary “ordinary people” who inspire us as they live their daily lives with honor and integrity. Greys, teals, khakis, creams and browns have been blended with distressed newsprint, vintage maps, globes, sailing ships, timepieces, combat boots, stripes, dots and flourishes to create a rugged, paper collection that is timeless in its appeal. Six deeply etched cling stamp sets featuring detailed collages, inspiring sentiments and unique circular elements mesh perfectly with the paper collection and matching set of dies. Let’s sing the praises of the unsung heroes in our lives with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.

    • Hi Angela,

      Thank you for your lovely comment. I am planning on doing a few of these for Fat Cats so stay tuned on that one. This actually opens into several boxes so I was thinking it would be a great holder for Salt Water Taffy. That is if I can get it into the lighthouse before it gets eaten. lol. Hopefully the weather will finally break and the long overdue Spring weather will finally arrive.

      Hugs,
      Joann
