"Start Everyday with a Smile" by PINQUETTE Jessie

How are all of our Pretty Little Peacocks Today?
 
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
PINQUETTE Jessie has an embellished
CD frame she is sharing with us today!!!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
 
Hello Everyone :)
Pinquette Jessie here from
Edogg Sugarlips and Princess Buttercup.
I have an adorable project to share with you today.
This is an altered CD. It was one some people
were throwing out. It didn't play anymore so
I turned it into this picture holder. You just
slide the picture in under the flowers.


The paper is MME Sweet Caroline. The paper says
"Start Everyday with a Smile", and I love that sentiment.
I added a  Pinque Peacock Pin. I made it with beads
from the Bead Buffet and then added some roses
and pearls. I love how it turned and and plan on
sticking it on my desk with a picture of Princess Buttercup.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day :)

"Believe" you can...and YOU SHALL by Jessica B.

Happy Day Sweet Blends

I am happy to be celebrating with sweet Nupur for her Blogaversary.
Nupur's Blog is called Down the Memory Lane
and you can also find her on Facebook, too.
Down the Memory Lane Facebook Fan Page

Nupur has such a keen eye for creative detail and is one of the sweetest girls ever.   Her style of crafting has opened my eye to so much more than I am used to and I adore all the alluring colors she uses in her projects.  I am super proud that she joined the Pinque Peacock Artists and Creators and she has been
such a valuable asset to the Team.  It has been a pleasure getting to know her better
and I look forward to our continued Friendship.

I want to take a moment to say
HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY
and Wish Nupur
The BEST of Luck and May ALL Her Dreams Come True

Another thing that is special to me, is visiting Nupur's blog and reading the wonderful inspirational quotes she shares regularly.  Here is the fabulous Down The Memory Lane Mission Statement - - - -

Down the Memory Lane.
“Design and creativity is the fundamental soul of a human made creation that ends up expressing in form of successive products.” Is what I believe in. This venture is all about my passion for creativity. Having studied visual arts at Ecole Mondiale World School I developed a passion for arts and then . . .

I really love how the statement really has no ending.  I think it is wonderful that she sees her journey continuing on and is waiting for the next step in her journey!

********************

Today I have created an altered notebook.


Here is a picture of what I gathered to start my project . . .


Of course, you may see a few items on my finished project that I added after taking the above picture!  I love that about crafting, too.  If you are finished, but feel unsatisfied, there are so many items and embellishments to choose from in the Craft World to make your Creations MAGNIFIQUE'!

The only requirement Nupur suggested when asking her friends to help her celebrate, was that they create anything that makes them happy.  So, I thought a lot about things that make me happy (in my crafting mind)!



I love the color purple.
I fancy peacocks (who knew, right?).


I adore layers,
embossing folders and powders,
and distressing paper in a variety of ways,
I personally think, my style tends to be
more along the lines of
MODERN
meets
VINTAGE
mixed with
SHABBY CHIC.


I enjoy playing with stamps, chipboard, patterns, and punches!

And, who can forget the Pinque Peacock Goodies - YUMMY!

Here are some of the items I used from the Pinque Peacock Shop

Purple Chunky Chevron - Layered Garden Beauty


1.5" Purple Snakeskin - Fabric Covered Button


Large Purple and White - Felt Poppers


Thank You Nupur for asking me to join you during your celebration!
Love and Hugs to you Sweet Blend!

Remember to
Keep Crafting,
Because
♫ CRAFTING ♫
♫ ROCKS ♫

"A PRETTY PEACOCK" by PINQUETTE Heather F.

How are all of our Pretty Little Peacocks Today?
 
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Today we have PINQUETTE Heather F. here
sharing her COOL project with us today!!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Good Morning Crafters! It feels good to be back in
my Craft Room creating after a 6 day Vegas Trip
and then the EXCITING News that my husband
was promoted to Master Chief! My house has been
just busy busy busy.. Finally it all calms down and
it's my turn to post as DT Member for the Pinque Peacock !

Jessica makes such FABULOUS items to craft
with I am so happy to be a part of her
Team and use her FABULOUS creations!

On to the project I created for today..






What I did was alter a composition book to
hold my ideas for my DT Projects and due dates.
Paper is from Heidi Swapp,  the Fabric Splendid Swirl &
Stick Pins are Pinque Peacock products created
by Ms. Jessica. White Ribbon is CTMH Ribbon

This was a super fun and easy project to create,
we always have a ton of Composition books in our
house as the school lists always ask for more than
what my girls actually use. I will have to share with
you later how I alter the inside and back page
{i'm still working on ideas} ..

 
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
 
Thank you Pinquette Heather F.
your project is awesome and very creative!!!

~~**My Favorite Subject**~~ by PINQUETTE Susie

How are all of our Pretty Little Peacocks Today?
 
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
PINQUETTE Susie is in the house today
with an awesome and ADORABLE layout she has created!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
 
So today is Tuesday and I've made a layout using
my favorite subject, Liam. I don't do that many layouts
these days, but I'm trying to scrap his pictures as I
get them printed. He's 8 months old now,
so I'm already 8 months behind. lol

I've been trying to use products I already have
on hand for my all of my projects and so far it's working
out. For this layout I used all TLC paper and die cuts,
Jolee's Boutique stickers and of course the
fuzzy and fabric covered buttons are Pinque Peacock.

Here are a couple photos of the buttons close-up.
 Love the fuzzy yellow ones!

 

 
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

This is the photo of
the whole layout!!!

"For a Friend" by PINQUETTE Robin

How are all of our Pretty Little Peacocks Today?
 
PINQUETTE Robin Perry-Perkey
has a beautiful card for us today
for a friend during their loss!!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥



♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
 
Hi friends and welcome
to the Pinque Peacock blog!!

My husbands friend at work had a death in the family
and DH asked me to make a sympathy card for him.
First of all my husband has never asked me to make
a card (which made me a little proud that he
would ask lol ) and secondly I have never made a sympathy card.
  
I haven't had a lot of crafty mojo lately...I think it
decided to take a vacation and forgot to
invite me...  hehe!.... So, I turned to my silhouette
to help me whip up a card :) I have some files
that I got from Birds Cards blog and I found
this one that I thought was pretty. I got out my
paper started cutting and then added a bow and
one of the gorgeous Pearl Stick Pins that you can
find at Pinque Peacock . I wanted to add just a
little hint of color and this pin did the trick. The picture
really doesn't do it justice the Pinque Peacock pins
are absolutely beautiful!!
 
Thank you so much for stopping by and
taking a look at my creation for today :)
Have a great and crafty day!!

Happy Sunday My Creative Friends

I'm super excited to be back with another Pinque Peacock
creation. Last month I did not post and I'm so excited
to have one for you all today. In today's creation I am
using one of the newly release button. It's the oh so
sweet and cute lady bug button. 
This set dose comes with a pretty little flower in your
order. Pinque Peacock has a lot of fun things in the
 store. Be sure to stop by and order some goodies for yourself.

Now for my project I created this cute little tag.
I have been seeing a lot of tags lately and I was so
excited to create my very own tag using the
Pinque Peacock  3/4 Fabric Covered Button. For my tag and banner
I usesome fun dies by My Creative Time called Tag Dies
and Vintage Stitched Label Dies. I then stamp the
background using cute little flowers also by MCT
called Spring Chicken Backgrounds. For my cute
little lady bug and sentiment is from: Sweet Stamp Shop
called Happy Bugs. Too finished off my tag I used ribbon
by Spoolo' Ribbon. Don't you just love how my tag turned out?


That's all I have for you all this week.
See ya next month the 3rd Sunday of the month.

~**HAPPY HOUR**~ by PINQUETTE Kimberly

How are all of our Pretty Little Peacocks Today?
 
PINQUETTE Kimberly Pate
is with us in the house again today!!!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
 
Hello everyone and thank you for coming
back to my blog for another day of
Pinque Peacock beads from the Bead Buffett.

Today I wanted to try something different,
and do a project with beads. What I thought
was going to be a fun and easy project,
turned out to be a little more
difficult than I had hoped.

I first started with the wine glass charms. 
While this was a fast and easy task,
it was not without a few snags.




I struggled getting the beads on the wires. 
After a little frustration, I got out my covered
pliers and straightened the wire tips. Making
it much faster and easier to slide my beads
onto the wires. I simply just used my flat
covered pliers and rebent the wires as they
were before. The charms are some that I
picked up at Michael's. I had them left
over from another project I completed.

I still need to get some crimper beads
and put on the very ends to keep the
beads from sliding all over the place
while drinking from the wine glass.
 

I didn't stop there however, I also wanted to make a wine bottle stopper. This is where the fun began. I honestly had not thought about how thick the stem of the stopper would be when I started this project and purchased my beads from Jessica.

The beautiful pink swirled beads would not fit on the stem. the holes were much to small. I was so disappointed. 
However, there can always
be a plan B. Right ladies?

Plan B was to find bigger beads, then create a dangle from a bead. I found a cute little butterfly bead that had an eyelet on it that would be perfect to hang a dangle from. Here is what I came up with.


Oh my, I just realized when I put up that
picture that I failed to add the charm
to the dangle to match the wine glass
charms. I like how this turned out, even
if I did have to revert to plan B.

I hope you like my project today!
