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!

Ashley's 21st birthday blog hop!!

Welcome to Day 1 of Ashley's 21st Birthday Blog Hop!

We are so glad you could join us! If you've come from Abby N's blog, you're in the right place! If you have just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Ashley at Made Especially For You.

This weekend we are celebrating Ashley's 21st Birthday with some fun and creative, birthday/alcohol-themed projects! It's not 21 without a drink or two, right?!

I've had the pleasure of being on Ashley's design teams and getting to know what a wonderful and talented person she is. Not to mention organized!! I would have already pulled my hair out if I had as much on my plate as she does lol :D I was thrilled when she invited me to be on the blog hop and hope she likes what I made for her....

Happy Happy Birthday Ashley! I hope you have an amazing and safe 21st birthday.

I wanted to do something different since it is her 21st birthday. I was browsing around and came across double slider cards. I have never made one before and thought that this would be as good a time as any! The directions for this card I got from You Tube (Dawn3577). It was a lot easier than I thought to make and fun too :)

This is my finished card...
These are images of it beginning to open ;)

This is fully opened. Sorry about the sideways picture. I am having a hard time fooling with this computer today! edit...(finally got it to turn it the right way lol )

This is in addition to our regular monthly challenge.

DT members were not required to participate.

We have 8 participating.

Sponsor is:

My Crafting Channel

Winner will receive:

Silhouette Printable Clear Sticker Paper

For your inspiration I created
a Hello Kitty Birthday card :)

I had a lot of fun using my marker on this card.
This is one of my cut files that I just used for a sketch file and then I typed out the sentiment onto my silhouette mat and "cut" it with my marker too :)
Then I added some doodling with my black sharpie pen.

Now hop on over to see what my DT sister have created for you inspiration and to link up your Sketch File projects.
