~* Butterfly Notepad in Caddy *~

Aloha Everyone!
Thank you all for the warm welcome back! I hope to start crafting again, we'll see as time permits ;p'. Love seeing all your gorgeous creations! You all just rock :)!
Here is the other caddy I mentioned in my previous post. I used Pooch & Sweetheart designer papers to create the caddy (used the Sizzix XL die). Added a strip of the polka dot DP and some lace. Then, I fussy-cut the flower/butterfly image and adhered that on. Added a monogram "M." Also, tied on some black seam binding at the top and one of the fabric roses I love.
I had purchased some of the coordinating Pooch & Sweetheart notepads, which fits perfectly in the caddy.
I have a lot of ideas for the Sizzix die that I there's more to come :)!
Wishing you all a lovely day! I'm so happy it's almost the weekend! Today was quite busy and stressful, but successful :).
*hugs* and Much aloha to you~!

~* ROAR! Teenie Weenie Mini in a Caddy *~

Aloha Everyone!
Sorry I've been away! I really miss you all and will try to stop by and say hi some time this week.
Here's a Teenie Weenie Mini I made using the STOMP! paper stack by My Mind's Eye. I just created the mini with 3-1/4" square pieces of thick cardstock and designer papers. I bound it with Stampin Up! trim. I embellished it with Glossy Accents, buttons, and images that I fussy-cut from the designer papers. The caddy was made using a Sizzix XL die. I added the image of the dinosaur that I fussy-cut as well as flocked chipboard MME Lush alphas, and some "ancient"-looking buttons :).
I made this at the end of May, but didn't have a chance to post ;p'. I am currently making another caddy to fill with goodies for a visiting colleague. I hope to share that with you soon :).
Wishing you all a fabulous week!
*hugs* and Much aloha to you always~!
