I have always loved jigsaw puzzles, especially on those cold snowy days, or times when you are just stuck inside the house.
I have also have spent a lot of time scrapbooking.
Why not combine the two? Everyone loves having their photos turned into a jigsaw puzzle. Why not have a puzzle with a photo that looks like a completed scrapbook page? I could not find that option available anywhere so I decided to start my own puzzle company!
Our puzzles are handmade from recycled chipboard in my home near Cleveland, OH. Each puzzle consists of 100 or 196 pieces and is a perfect square--12 inches by 12 inches in size. The same size as the most common scrapbook page, they can accomodate a large photo and look great when framed!
PUZZLES ARE NOT WATERPROOF. Do not get them wet, or store them in a musty place, etc.
PUZZLES WILL FADE if left in sunlit areas. If framed, make sure it is not in direct sunlight. If stored, keep the puzzle in its box, in a cool, dry place.
PUZZLES COLORS MAY VARY. All computer screens and monitors are different. Therefore, colors may print out slightly different than on your computer screen.
PUZZLES ARE HANDMADE. Border thickness on each side may vary slightly as they are cut through the press.
PUZZLE PIECES ARE LARGE and thick and have a glossy shine (photo shows piece for 100 piece puzzle, 196 piece puzzle pieces are half this size).
Stacey, owner and creator of Pugshine Puzzles, named the company in honor of her two pugs, Cookie & Nugget. Stacey is a retired band director and flutist that enjoys living the life in the CLE with her husband Edd, who is an integral part of the puzzle making process. Both belong to their three dogs, Cookie, Sprinkles & Nugget.
