A Little Inspiration

A while ago I went to a scrapbook warehouse sale … I had picked up some really cool items from Kaiser crafts, but I hadn’t really had any ideas on what to do with them.  Until now, that is.

I decided to make a decorative piece for myself using the jigsaw puzzle set …

I ended up keeping the project very simple … I decided to let the words have the biggest impact.

It’s the first altered piece I’ve made that I’ve kept for myself … it goes perfectly with my room and it’s something that makes me smile every time I see it.

Materials used:

  • Kaiser craft jigsaw puzzle
  • patterned paper: MME So Sophie collection
  • bling: Prima & Basic Grey
  • flower & ribbon: Prima
  • stamps: Michaels
  • charms & metal accents: Making Memories & Blue Moon
  • chipboard accent: DCWV Mariposa collection
  • miscellaneous: Craftsmart black paint, Ranger Distress Stickles – Rock Candy

Thanks for stopping by.
