Paper Piecings by Nikki Team A DT Offerings - Back to School

Good Tuesday, Crafties!  Going back to school is cool!! The LoveBug Creations gals are pleased to be a part of PPbN's DT Team A Blog Hop using the theme of Back to School.  PPbN's unique and darling paper piecing collections can be found on Nikki's online store at

Why not drop over, take a gander, and try something new to you - these collections are a hit with so many folks who want to add that special touch to a project for sharing, caring, and supporting others.

The hop line up is as follows:
Nikki -
Mandy -
Kimberly -
Pam/Kimi -  HERE
Amanda B - NEXT
Linda -
Barb -

Mama LoveBug aka Pam is up first.  Today I actually have two projects - one is a perpetual calendar using the bears from the Back to School collection.  The second is a series of bookmarks (which could also be gift tags) from the same patterns.  This shows off the fact that Nikki's patterns are soooooo versatile, no matter what project you are designing.

Here's the perpetual calendar, which would make a great teacher gift.
I entered this in a challenge for Back to School at

Here's the sections of the project - bottom, middle, and top!

Here's the inside shot of September!

The second project is a series of bookmarks using the same collection!

It's Kimi here with my Back to School Project! If you didn't see my post about the "1st day of school" for my little guy then you have to check it out ( here! ) This project goes along with the project I have for today!

I made a layout to add the photos from the previous project too! Again I used the "Back to School" cutting file as well as the DCWV stacks "Grade School & Edumaction" Oh they just go sooo perfectly with Nikki's files!!! So here it is... Don't mind the photography skills (of which I have none!)

Photo mat and backpack bear!

Cut outs from paper stacks! Can't wait to fill these out!

Another photo mat and Bus Bear! Tag behind pulls out and says "Cool School Memories!" Since my little guy fell asleep on bus ride home I'm totally writing that on there! ;)

More cutouts from the stack and the Pencil Bear!
