Carta Bella Rough & Tumble Lighthouse

I have a fun new project on the Carta Bella blog today, a lighthouse using the Rough & Tumble Collection.

I love this paper collection, the colors are so rich, even though it has a boyish theme it can be used for so many different projects.  It was perfect for this lighthouse, I wanted that red and white and these papers worked great.

The lighthouse is from Creations by AR, I love that you can put a battery tealight in the top, the bottom part is a box which can be filled with candies, makes such a cute centerpiece for a party.

The elements in this collection are so cute, it covers sea, air and land, something for just about everyone really.  The bow is made of Berry Trendy Twine and I added some red and white cording around the bottom.

I hope you've enjoyed this project, stop by the Carta Bella Blog to see all the wonderful projects made with their awesome paper collections.


  1. Brigit, this is awesome! You do such a great job of putting these together and they look pretty tricky to me. I haven't purchased many

  2. Oops, I accidently hit the publish button before I'd completed... I was saying I hadn't purchased many because I've had problems with the few I have -- guess I've got to watch the videos; but I love how yours turn out.

  3. Absolutely AMAZING!!!
    Please stop by my blog for the Trendy Twine Giveaway!
