Paper Piecings by Nikki DT Offering - Retired Patterns

Happy Crafting Time, Everyone!  
At Paper Piecings by Nikki there is a new look! 

is brimming over with goodies for all occasions.  She has such unique patterns and some room needs to be made for new gems, so here’s the scoop.  PPbN has a few pattern collections that are slated for RETIREMENT – won’t be there forever, so get ‘em while the getting’s good.

To that end I decided to make a perpetual calendar using several of her patterns.
A red solo cup
A Christmas tree
Gingerbread characters –  Baking Memories

Here’s my project using PPbN patterns:

I lined the calendar first with a mat of Kraft paper and then another layer of gingerbread paper.  I fussy cut out my characters and assembled them using gel pens for highlights, Christmas brads, snowflake punch, and some ribbon.  My sentiment was computer generated.

Hope you are getting into the spirit of  gift giving – this would be a terrific one for a family member, friend, teacher, etc!!

Challenge  Anything but a card
Challenge  Anything Goes

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