Fun Find: PPbN Designs

It's time for another Fun Find Friday!  Today's fun find is Paper Piecings by Nikki!

I was first introduced to Paper Piecings by Nikki (PPbN) through another member of the Disney Scrapbookers Facebook group.  The other member uses her designs to create character and title die cuts for her scrapbook pages.  She shared a few photos of the die cuts she made and told us how she found them.

I researched Paper Piecings by Nikki, also known as PPbN, and joined a Facebook group where people show the pieces they've created with her files.  Then I went to her website to explore and I was immediately hooked to her adorable designs.  Nikki creates svg files you can cut with your cutting machine!

PPbN has a program where you can become a PPbN member to get daily freebies, exclusive members only designs and a discount on her files!  For July, if you join or are already a member, you're automatically entered in a drawing for a new iPad Mini!

I liked her PPbN Facebook Page so I could check out more of her designs as she posted them.  Every day, Nikki posts the daily member freebies that you can download from her website.  After seeing one of these designs, I became a member a few nights ago.

I was seduced (in a good way) by the "Once Upon A Dream" Maleficent inspired set.  It was offered as a member freebie and I couldn't resist.  As I mentioned a few days ago, we finally went to see Maleficent the other day.  I thought this design would be perfect for scrapbooking the event!

I've already gone onto PPbN and downloaded a few of the free member files.  I'm so excited!  I also started a list of files that I'd like to get eventually.  Nikki has a wide range of designs including holidays, sports, seasons, titles, vacations, weather, animals, family and alphabets!  There are plenty of character files and holiday files that I know I'm going to use in my scrapbooking projects!

Before I go too crazy buying designs, I need to get a few other things in order.  It's time for another confession: I'm getting a ton of cutting files and I don't even have a machine to cut them with... yet!  We have a Cricut Expression 2, but sadly it doesn't allow me to cut these designs.  But, Eliot and I have discussed getting a Cameo in the future.  So, I will not let my current situation deter me from these amazing designs!
