Mix and Match PPbN Blog Hop - Different Piecings Add Variety

Welcome to the Paper Piecings by Nikki Mix and Match Blog Hop.

The idea for this hop is to mix and match different collections to show the vast variety of and unique designs one can achieve with PPbN products located at http://www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com/  This month we wanted to show you how easy it is to mix and match Nikki's amazing piecings and to inspire you to try your hand at it too.   Nikki has LOTS of new designs for you to try out and perhaps mix with sets you already have.

Here's the line-up from Team A DT:

Mama LoveBug is up first at LoveBug Creations today to show off such a mix and match.  I used two collections for my project.

*pocket card base using digital paper from Sherry K Designs
*pocket card insert using paper I made from PPbN - Love You a Latte
*piecings from Love You a Latte (bear on insert w/coffee and heart on base) and You're Never a Bother To Me (bear on base w/pink bow)
*gold embossed fruit and sayings from Unity Stamps
*SU punch, gel pens, Stickles, crimper

Card base and insert

Hi Hoppers! Kimi here with my project! I decided since my only son will be 5 in a few weeks I need to start working on his scrapbook. Oh I'm horrible! 5 years and I think I have 3 pages done! LOL So I figured what better way to get going on his book then to use some of Nikki's adorable piecings! I combined the Baby Boy Bear Card, Box and Tag Pattern/Image Set and the Baby Mine Boy Pattern/Image Set! I love how this turned out! I used some CTMH papers and some ribbons, buttons and twine from my stash! Here's how it turned out!
