 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Dragonflies"
                                                      



Last month one of my projects was a mini notepad holder.  Several people mentioned that they'd like to see a tutorial for this project.  So I made another one using today's MFP set, Presents.  You will find the tutorial one post down.  I paper-pieced the package with the same DP as is on the flap.


Here is the inside of the notepad holder.  You could use this little notebook for your Christmas lists.


Paper-piecing works so well with this set.  Two of the packages on my card are paper-pieced and the other two are colored with markers.  The DPs on my card as well as that on the notebook portfolio are all from the Authentique Wonder paper pad.



It's hard to believe that it's already Friday.  I hope you've gotten some inspiration from the Blog Hop this month.  And make sure you check out the rest of the design team members' blogs.  

Here's the Design Team:
