Heritage Bedtime Castle

                                                 Heritage Bedtime Castle  


You may think this isn't a traditional gift for a baby, but it is!  Just bear with me.  This design is offered by Svgcuts.com   and the name of the file is " Bedtime Castle."  I hesitated to make this at first, as I thought it would take me years, but it was basically finished within a day.  

 Castle - 14.5" tall
Paper I used is Graphic 45 "Mother Goose"

I don't know about any of you, but I personally was not interested in my heritage until I was 50 years old.  I did remember a few family stories shared with me, but not enough information to pass on.  So in my spare time, I researched our family roots.  I just know by the time I am finished; there will be an app to scan your eyes and DNA using your phone and tell you immediately your family history ! UGH

Castle with lid removed

In the picture above, we moved the smaller towers lid section, which is covering a hidden box.   I am making a small sized family history book and will place it inside the castle box.  I will include pictures also of our Ancestors and notes.  This way my Grand-daughter will have the information needed and wanted to share with her children.

Again, this design is offered by Svgcuts.com   and the name of the file is " Bedtime Castle."

Cowboy Birthday Card

Isn't this a great card for a younger boy?  This design is easy as it gets and is another svgcut.com file.  This card took around 30 minutes to complete.

                                     The little Cowboy reminds me of my Great-Grandson Jed.

The patterned paper is by October Afternoon "Sasparilla".  October Afternoon paper is one of my top 5 papers to use.  Cuts like butter and just fun paper!  The downfall?  Hard to find. :(   I did find an online store which carries this htf line and at discount prices too!  I have ordered 4 times from this store and the service is 5 PLUS Stars!  I am paying  .75-.79 cents per paper which other places are charging .95-.99 cents a sheet.  I am finding hard to find designs/companies which is also a bonus.  And, what pride they take with their package preparation for shipping. Every order has been carefully packed and WRAPPED.  
 Below is a picture of my latest order.  Thank You to Starlitstudio.com.  Check out their store!

Have a great week and thank you for stopping by my Blog.
