Lighthouse Island

Today I want to share a little project I made for my living room.

Lately I’ve been downsizing practically everything I make, due to lack of storage space but also for the fun and challenge of working with something so small.

This time I wanted to make the Lighthouse and the Lighthouse Keeper’s Quarters from the Seaside kit by SVGCuts in 50% of the originals. I also wanted to make the cute little rowboat (minus the box) from the Picnic In The Park kit.

So I began and things just evolved…….

The Lighthouse:

This is made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Gold Fish and decorated with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Sunkissed Collection.

I embossed the middle panels with a Cottage stone-patterned embossing folder from Crafters Companion and tied a hemp cord around the base.

I also added some Prima flowers in matching colors and a tiny seahorse bead.

On top I added a ball chain with small metal sea shells and inside the tower I put a tiny LED light (not so visible in daylight but powerful at night). I also added a LED light inside the Lighthouse.

The Lighthouse Keeper’s Quarters:

This tiny house is made from AC Cardstock in Denim, Ocean, Vanilla and Carrot and decorated with Graphic 45 “Sunkissed”.

The door is embossed with a woodgrain-patterned embossing folder from Crafters Companion and the door knob is a small green enamel dot from my stash. I also added three other dots on the roof for a little fun effect.

The roof is embossed with a fish scale embossing folder – seriously can’t remember from where I got it – sorry! :-/

I wanted to make a small stone path down to the dock so I used some small plastic pellets and glued them onto the base.

I also decorated with a tiny metal key, a small starfish and a metal flower – all from my pretty large stash.

Here’s view from above – just look at that cool roof!

The Rowboat:

This one I made in 33% of the original so it’s very tiny!

I used AC Cardstock in Ocean, Denim, Carrot and Vanilla and decorated with “Sunkissed” paper.

I also found a tiny metal lantern for the boat so it can be seen in the dark 😉

The Anchor is made from Bazzill Bling Cardstock in Tungsten and I glued 6 pieces together to make it look heavy and sturdy.

Finally I made a path from the Lighthouse to the Quarters by gluing some Frosted Mica flakes from Finnabair onto the base.

I also decorated with more Prima flowers, a Compass from Ideaology and a few trinkets.

And here’s the entire project in one picture:

I got the cliff base from a Iglo file from Creatieve Papier Uitspattigen and I think it works just fine even though it’s meant to be an ice shelf.

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Charcoal, Concrete and Leaf and is kept in the original size.

If I was to make it again, I would design some small support boxes to put inside each box as it tends to sink a bit in the middle.

My vision: ……..LOL 😀

(the video is made on my phone with a special app – the light in the top of the Lighthouse does unfortunately not spin like that. It’s only a special effect)

Well – what do you think? Please tell me in a comment below 🙂

Thank you so much for visiting me today ❤

 

 

Breakfast at…..

…..Müllers 😀

Hiya – soo good of you to drop by today as I invite you to breakfast here at my house.

I’ll be serving the traditional feast of Bacon and Eggs along with some nice hot toasts and a cup of coffee. Sounds good? Well here we go:

Always coffee first:

This is a cute coffee cup from Creatieve Papier Uitspattingen – a new (for me) place with SVG’s that I recently found.

I made the cup with AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated it with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Home Sweet Home”.

I filled a bag with coffee beans and put it in and if these were made of chocolate, it would be ready to give away as a small hostess gift.

Next is the food:

This is also from Creatieve Papier Uitspattigen – except the bacon which I found in the Silhouette Design Store design #4747.

The egg is part of a freebie with a cute frying pan. I couldn’t get the pan assembled so instead I scaled up the saucer from above and turned it into a dinner plate.

It’s also made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with Graphic 45 paper.

The Egg and bacon are also made from AC Cardstock in White, Melon, Brown Sugar, Chocolate and Caramel.

I inked the edges of the egg whites to make them look a bit fried 😉 Yummy

Finally we need the toats:

Yeah….WOW…..it looks totally real! Find it here.

This toaster is made from AC Cardstock in Black and decorated with silver metal cardstock and a tiny enamel dot on the regulator.

The toasts are made from AC Cardstock in Brown Sugar and Caramel and inked heavily with a brown ink pad from Ingvild Bolme.

And here is the complete breakfast setting:

So I will see you later….I promise to serve you some hot coffee and not just the beans 😀

Thanks for stopping by today – I hope you enjoyed your meal and that you’ll come back to visit real soon ❤
