Preschooler Inspiration Board ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

My daughter - oh-lover-of-all-things-crafty - has a desk in her room where she squirrels away at her leisure. Here's an inspiration board I made for her using the Hello Life Project Kit as a starting point. These printable flash cards are fun for learning letter sounds but the pictures are cute too and have been popping up in her drawings already. Find them here at Mr Printables.

This came together quite quickly including my messy bow-poms. Can you tell? Haha. Wrap and wrap around two fingers, slip the bundle off carefully, tie a separate piece around the centre and cut the loops. Peg on bits from the Hello Life kit and a some Pompom Trim and you're done. Penny's feeling pretty chuffed with it.

What I LOVE: the black frame is so awesome and a really neat size too. Nothing is stuck on permanently so I look forward to changing it up later when she or I get bored of it.

Some other ideas for the frame:
Family notice/admin area
Polaroid style display for Instagram pics
Birthday party decor
Home Reno/DIY mood board...

Endless possibilities really!!!!
