Paper Piecing with the Mimi Collection







I don't know what happened to my last post. My pictures for the "Remember September" PaperCrafting month didn't show up. So let's try it again. Here are the "Mimi" paper collection samples. I did some paper piecing on these.

For newbies, here's a quick "how to" on paper piecing:

1- stamp your full image on white cardstock and color in only the hair, face & arms.

2- stamp different parts of your image on different parts of your patterned paper. You will cut out these images and adhere them back to the white cardstock, thus, paper piecing. This is a neat way to add interest and alot of dimension to your work.




Contact me to purchase your Coordinating Paper Sets so you too can start paper piecing some scrapbook or rubber stamped artwork. Have a blessed day!!
