Paper Piecings by Nikki

Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  I know I did.  I got to relax and had a chance to play with images from Paper Piecings by Nikki.  I love love love her designs.  They are so cute and  easy to work with.  With Nikki's designs, you don't need to have a cricut or Silhouette to use her images, because she includes formats so you can cut them out by hand. 

My niece is expecting a baby in October, so I wanted to start a baby album for her so she can just add pictures when she gets home with her new baby.

For the cute little bumble bear on the top, I used Nikki's file called Bumble Bee Mine.  I just printed the image and cut it out by hand.  You can also cut two out and layer some of the pieces too - so versitile.  The puppy is from Nikki's file called You Can Always Lean on Me.  I think he is just so adorable!!

The title "Sweet Baby" is cut from my silhouette machine at 3 inches.  The buttons are a Martha Stewart punch that also embosses.  I threaded it with some white thread to give some texture to the page.

I hope you will stop by Paper Piecings by Nikki and check out her designs.  Please stop by every Monday, when I have another "Nikki" project ready.
