Welcome to the "Mix and Match Blog Hop" brought to you by the Paper Piecings By Nikki Design Team. This month we wanted to show you how easy it is to mix and match Nikki's amazing piecings and to inspire you to try your hand at it too. Nikki has LOTS of new designs for you to try out and perhaps mix with sets you already have.
For my project I used the Baby Girl Bear Card, You Are So Loved, and Let's Have a Party patterns.
The teddy bears all came from the Baby Girl Bear Card Pattern. I used the cowboy hat from the Let's Have a Party set to make my baby bears little cowgirls. I named my teddy Penelope and she needed a pony! What little cowgirl doesn't have a pony? Petunia the pony, yep I named her too, is from the You Are So Loved Pattern. The pony in that pattern has patches all over it, but if you leave off the patches you get Petunia! I added bling everywhere I could, and the tiny silver horse shoes were found in the jewelry making section, not the scrapbooking section. Don't be afraid to check all the departments at the craft store. You never know where else you might find the perfect embelly! I had a blast mixing up the patterns for this layout for my beautiful granddaughter Kaylee, and her ponies Jack and Caramel! Working with Nikki's patterns always makes an AWESOME page layout!
Thanks for taking a peek at my project. I hope this inspires you to create your own mix and match project. This is the last stop on our blog hop. We hope you will come back on the 15th when the rest of our team shows you their mix and match projects. Until then - Happy Scrapping and Piecing fun!!!
I live in the world of grandbabies. My world revolves around my babies. I am so blessed that 3 of the grandbabies (oh ya and their parents too ..lol) live on the opposite end of our house. They give Nana a reason to get out of bed in the morning! My other grandbabies come and visit too, and Nana loves having them visit too! Everyone that said grandbabies are more fun than your own children were right. All this time I thought they were crazy, until I got my first grandbaby. I am still in awe over how much you can love a child that you didn't give birth to. Of course I love my daughters too, but not near as much as my grandbabies! lol Nana loves you Kaylee, Allan, Clayton, Isabel, and Keegan!
