Hello and welcome to all of you lovely Peacocks!

My name is Christy and I'm here today because our fearless leader Jessica asked if I would like to be a guest designer. My reply was.......letmethinkaboutthatoneminute.....YES!!  Talk about a no-brainer!!

OF COURSE I would love to pop in and tell everyone about one
of my FAVORITE Pinque Peacock's products:

Beaded Stick Pins


These stunning pins perfectly accent many projects.
The beads are GORGEOUS and fit so many different styles. 


 
~~**~~**~~**~~
My favorite way to use the Beaded Stick Pins is as a "bridge"
between different parts of my projects.

I like to be able to help move the eye from one collage to another.

Though sometimes, I just like to use them because they are just SO beautiful!

I created the Springtime In Paris canvas just for today's post. 


As you look at the project you'll see that I also used a few
 more Pinque Peacock goodies when I created it.
The Elegant Florals can really elevate the look of any project.
On this canvas I chose to alter mine.

Hello crafty peeps...
Hope you and yours had a wondeful Easter... it was GORGEOUS here!!!
Today I have this way cool little project for Pinque Peacock...
When I seen this in the shop I knew I had to have one.... it's the NEW Pallet Palooza Item, made from a pallet!!! Thats right a pallet which you find freight shipped on! COOL HUH!!!! Now mine I have here is custom.... I wanted mine to house my business cards at events that I decorate for... like weddings! The Park Bench Desktop Organizer can come in a vaierty of colors or in raw wood.... I requested mine without the organizer, which the owner Jessica was wonderful to do for me, well her and Mr. Peacock, her hubby Lance... and then I decorated to fit ME!

I added spanish moss, tulle, mulberry flowers and leaves,
 a Felt Popper and the Natural Colors Feathers which are available on a
pre order at Pinque Peacock and lastly some pearl trim. The business cards I printed on the
Cardmaker Series™ Pearls Cardstock Sheet - Pearly White - 8.5 x 11 paper pad...
this cardstock is great to use especially if you want a girly kind of business card!!!

WHOOP WHOOP...
PINQUETTE Susie is in the house!!

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
always look forward to my turn on the Pinque Peacock Blog and plan out my project, but it doesn't always work out! I have several projects always going at once as I'm sure all crafters do, but the last month or so they're not turning out like I envisioned them in my head!

So after my project for today's blog post was a bust, I did another quick project so as not to let our awesome followers down (or you may be let down when you see it)!

So here is my quick and easy frame. I used a Burlap Fabric Splendid Swirl and a 3/4 inch Fabric Covered Button that ca be found at the Pinque Peacock Shop. The photo is of my son back in 1979 making his silly face.

PINQUETTE Rebecca here today
with a fun card to share!!


♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Good Day, fellow Peacocks!
I've got a cute little project and tutorial to share today.
 

To start, gather all of the stuff shown below.
I'm sure you have all these things in your stash, right?



What you Need:
(1) Scraps of designer paper in various widths
(2) Flowers to coordinate with your paper (I made these, but there are lots readily available out there)
(3) A doily
(4) Sandwich or kraft gift bag
(5) A length of coordinating ribbon about 16"
(6) Large Burlap Splendid Swirl from Pinque Peacock

Not Shown:
- Adhesive (double stick tape, glue gun, glue dots)
- Scissors
- Staples


STEP 1:
Tuck your gift in the bag and fold the top carefully over a couple of times and secure with a staple.

STEP2:
Cut your scraps of paper in various length banners and layer to your liking. Again, secure with a couple staples. Set aside.

STEP 3:
Put a piece of double stick tape on the BACK of gift bag. Fold the doily in 1/2 and lay over the top of the bag (see final project)

STEP 4:
Put a couple of pieces of double stick tape on the back and front at the top of the banners. Lift up the front of the doily (It won't have any tape on it). Tuck the banner underneath and secure.

STEP 5:
Tie the length of ribbon around the back. Knot should be either to the left or right. (Mine is on the right. Clip the ends to match the banners. You might want to secure the ribbon in place with a piece of double stick tape. I used a dab from my hot glue gun.

STEP 6:
Adhere the Burlap Splendid Swirl in the center.

STEP 7:
Arrange the flowers around the large centerpiece and secure in place. You will note that I didn't use all the flowers I pulled out. And That's okay!

There you go. A cheerful package to make anyone happy!

Thank you Pinquette Rebecca for sharing
your FUN, and way too cute gift bag!!!

is here today!!

Good morning my lovelies, Pinquette Mary here with a card using the extremely beautiful Angel stick pin from Pinque Peacock. These happen to be a personal favorite of mine and I can always find a wonderful use for them. Today I used it to make a very special card for my grand daughter. Let's take a look shall we:


That's right Mia will be receiving her First Communion in a few weeks and she loves purple. I just happened to have this beautiful Angel with a purple bead! Usually I also add some 3 Girl Jam ribbon on my cards but this time I really wanted to have the stick pin show off as a focal point.

I hope you have enjoyed this card and I sincerely wish you a very Blessed Easter and Passover. If you would like to learn more about how I made this card please feel free to stop by my blog and I would love for you to leave a comment.
~Mary

Good Morning Crafty Friends!!
Welcome To Another Pinque Peacock Post.

As always I love seeing how well Pinque Peacock products pare up with other products and on altered creations. I really have been enjoying my altered creations and we all know how amazing the stick pins, buttons, and flowers look on all creations. Anyway today I'm sharing this altered box. This box had a cute little coffee mug and coaster in it. I really like the pattern papers. And this box is so sturdy. I thought it would be nice to embellish my box. I used Pinque Peacock Pearl Beaded Stick Pin which you can find HERE. I love the colors Jessica used on this stick pin. I also use this awesome Fabric Splendid Swirls Flower you can also find many more HERE. The metal leaves is from Miriam's Crafting Supplies. I thought a string of peals would be a perfect addition to this cute box. Over all I think this altered box was a big hit.


Here's a close up of the embellishments.


Okay peeps that's all I have for you.
Till Next Time Happy Crafting
