Paper Piecings by Nikki DT Offering - Boys With Their Toys

Good Morning, Crafties!  Paper Piecings by Nikki (PPbN) has a new collection for that boy in your life, whether he’s young or old, tall or short, smart or well- you get the idea.  Most males have a thing about toys – it could be the traditional stuff like trucks, match-book cars, etc or it could be the technological toys like computer, I-pods, large, flat screen TV’s or such.  Yes, it’s Boys With Their Toys!

So with that in mind, Mama LoveBug designed a card using two of the patterns in this new collection – and added some twists.  The PPbN online store can be found at

I found a patterned paper that had plaids (a carnival stack), like the boys’ shirts, and after fussy cutting the boy bears, I added some gel pens highlights for interest around the characters.  I fashioned a pocket card, cut out a few labels from a Spellbinders die, stamped two sentiments – Born to Ride and Happy Birthday (call when it's time for cake).  Then I dressed up the base and insert adding some boy buttons and blue gems to match the color scheme.  My last touch was an Action Wobble for the base bear – love those!!  I guess those are toys for crafties!

Here is my Boys and Their Toys card for today’s offering.

Hope you enjoy your crafting day and remember, no matter how you piece your paper, have fun with it.........cyberhugs.........Mama LoveBug
