limeLIGHT July Project

Good morning friends! Today is the 6th of the month so that means I get to share my limeLIGHT Papercrafts project of the month with you. This month Mandy asked us to use something with stars or stripes or stars and stripes.

I thought I had shown you plenty of patriotic cards this last week so I went a little different way with my stripes and used some Basic Grey striped patterned paper with Core'dinations cardstock to make an accordion purse. My friend, Kris, has made several of these and they are oh, so cute so I had to try one! To dress up my file purse a little I used a stamp from Q.T. Hooty by Pink Cat Studio. I had such fun coloring the hats so that each of those cute owls could have their own personality! For a finishing touch I had fun with some white adhesive pearls from Kaisercraft (you MUST check out the color selection Mandy has!) This file purse was so easy to put together! You can see the directions HERE if you'd like to make your own.

Now I know I love a good sale so here is a quick run down of what Mandy has on special for this week...

25% off: All Glitter, Bazzill Chips, All Fun Flock and 20% off: All Pink Paislee Stamps and All Unity Stamps! I'm thinkin' I'll be check that out too!
