"To everything there is a season"

Hello :)  It's me again....(did anyone else start singing a Lionel Richie song??)


Yep ladies and gents I am back to show you one more CAS card. This time I did add just a little tiny bit extra onto the card. (Sorry, couldn't help myself )

 I wanted to bring out some of the pretty colors in the center petal of my "oh so cute" felt and fabric flower. So, I grabbed one of my spectrum noir markers and colored in the dots on this cute embossed image :)


                                 I thought I would give you a little close up of this cute flower!!



Did you know that you can get embossing folders and spectrum noir pens over at Pinque Peacock??

She has great prices on them too!! so head on over there and get your supplies to make your cards, scrapbook pages, and altered projects beautiful :)

 
 
Have a great day!!

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!

 It's my turn to post a project showcasing some of the gorgeous items you can purchase at the Pinque Peacock shop. I'm posting a CAS card for you today :)

Now, I'm not really good at doing the Clean and Simple cards, because I keep wanting to add more details to it. But, I limited myself and think I did a pretty good job with it lol.


I used one of the beautiful flowers that Jesiica makes out of that gorgeous 3 Girl jam ribbon.



This is a close up of the awesome flower!

If you would like to purchase some of these gorgeous flowers then hop on over to the Pinque shop and get yours with all the different 3GJ ribbons.

You're one cute chick!


It's time for another round of inspiration for our challenge over at

Ch# 12 Faux Stitching Feature (Using Machine)
Begins: Tuesday, April 1
Ends: Wednesday, April 30

A blog dedicated to the Silhouette Cutting Machines.
You MUST use a Silhouette somehow in your project.

Sponsor this month is:
My Crafting Channel



Silhouette 25-Pack Chipboard

I love adding the stitching detail to my creations and having the silhouette makes it sooo easy!!
I made this cute little Easter card with the faux stitching around it :)
(sorry about the typo...I have fixed it lol)
I took the top layer of this card and did an internal offset then clicked on my lines and set it for the stitching with dots. I put it and my cutie patootie little bear dressed up like a little chick onto my virtual mat with the registration marks on it and printed it out. Put the paper on my cutting mat and cut it out. Super cute and super simple!! 2 things I love hehe.

I hope you will give this feature on the silhouette a try, it really is a lot of fun to use :D


Head in over to see what the DT has created for you inspiration and link up today.

Have a great day!

For my project. I decided to make a Mother's day card (kind of) LOL.
They  have these new  A2 sized box card that are really cute and I thought I would try one out :)

This is how it looks all folded up. I decided to use the cute little quote that came with my pin  and use it for the outside portion of the card so she could read it before she "open's " it up.



This is how the card looks after you open it up. Isn't it cute?! And to think all that folds flat to fit in an envelope :)  I also added the cute little angel stick pin in with the flowers. Love those!!




This is a close up so that you can see the beautiful pin! 

I also added the matching paper to the envelope :)

Just checking in...

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to check in with all of you and let you know why I haven't been on my blog much.

     Except for my DT postings.. I haven't really posted much of anything else. I decided that I wanted to try to make a little business doing the things I love to do and crafting is my passion.  So, I made a page on facebook for all of my creations and have been working at trying to get  my business out there!

     I really appreciate all of you that do comment on my projects that I have posted, and those of you that stop by to give it a look :)

     I think I will try to start posting some of my creations from the "shop" lol here also.  So that I don't totally neglect my blog.

These are a couple of things that I have done :)
 
 
 
This was for a local Airsoft Facility
 
A shirt I made for the hubs..
 
A cup for my niece that is totally crazy over 1D
 
 
A personalized cheer bow



Thanks so much for stopping by and I would love for you to stop by and like my page on facebook :)

 
 
Have a great day!!

Gift card holder

  Good morning!  Thank you so much for stopping by :)


My last post I made a super cute purse that I found on the Silhouette store site. Well, today I have a little coin gift card holder to go with it :)  I plan on giving it to my little niece for Easter.  I'm going to put a few of her favorite candies in it and a little something for her to spend at the store hehe :)


Finished coin purse gift card holder..

Easter Purse

Good morning! Welcome to the Pinque Peacock blog.

Robin here with a cute little Easter Purse, that I found on the silhouette site and decided to give it a try :)




Isn't it super cute!  I tried taking a decent picture for all of you, but I really stink at getting it just right lol.

This purse was purchased at the Silhouette store and according to the directions you are supposed to put Velcro or a magnet on the closure to make it stay down. I didn't have either one of those things and thought that  this cute little green fabric button would do the trick. And, it did!  It is just heavy enough to hold the flap of the purse down without having to  fix a closure for it.

I also added some bling to my purse where the brads are supposed to go :)

If you would like to purchase some of these awesome fabric buttons then head on over to the Pinque shop today and get yours while they last hehe.

That's it for me today folks. Thanks for stopping by!
