DT Offering for Paper Piecings by Nikki - Hippos and Geeks

Good Monday Crafties.  Today I (Mama LoveBug aka Pam) have two projects to share with you from new PPbN collections - A Refreshing Summer Treat and I Love My Geek. Swing over to Nikki's online store and check these cuties out at

The first is a pocket card I made for some family friends who are celebrating a big anniversary.  The hippos in this collection are so sweet and the watermelon looks so yummy.  I made paper from the watermelon image, fussy cut the hippos and added some bling.  I cut out a bow which matches the watermelon green and added a few more flourishes.  My sentiments - Perfect Pair, Congratulations, and Simply the Best are from Pink By Design.

Here's the Hippos in Love Card

My second project is a set of bookmarks using the Geek theme - I have several friends who are definitely part of my personal geek squad - love technology when it works, but when it needs a bit of troubleshooting, I know who to call.

Here's some bookmarks I fashioned - again fussy cut the desk and computer and then covered the desk with some patterned paper.  I then fussy cut the "geeks" and added some sparkle.  The sentiment - Have a Megabyte Day is again from Pink By Design.  Those glasses really crack me up!

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper, have fun with it.......cyberhugs......Mama LoveBug.
