Altered Paper Mache Book Box

Hi everyone! I want to share the altered book box that I just completed!
You can find the kit to do this at Pinque Peacock's Crafty Kit Club
This is the July kit and I purchased the Soft and Shabby


The only thing I added from my own stash was the metal flower and large pearl. You can find both of those items at Miriam's Crafting Supplies    I also used Antique Matte Mod Podge which is not included in the kit.
I started by wadding up the tissue paper in the kit because I wanted the book to have that shabby look. I used mod podge to attach it. When it dried I mixed the 2 colors of paint in my kit to get this pinkish color then just did random brushes of paint to get the look I wanted. On the spine I just used the gold tissue paper and mod podge.          
 The inside I finished the lid the same way then tore sheets of the paper and inked the edges in gold and attached those. I used the gold paper in the kit for the bottom and 2 long sides the cut strips from a pattered paper in the kit for the 2 short sides.
I have to say Jessica at Pinque Peacock did an amazing job putting this kit together!! I even had product left over! I totally loved working with this kit :)
Now here is a pic of the kit and a list of what comes in it!!

Life is a Journey

Hi everyone! It is my day to post on the
I have decided to do a birthday card for a very special person in my life.
Here it is :)

I started with a standard heavy weight card stock and scored it so I could create the easel.
Then cut and added some print card stock from Prima and it is called free spirit.
I love the colors and prints.
Then I pulled out my Pinque Peacock Flower and pin stash. I found the perfect flower from Pinque Peacock and it is a Fabric Splendid Swirl with a center embellishment. It just went perfect with the papers.
The beautiful Pin is Pinque Peacock too of course!! It is one of the beaded stick pins. Now I don't know if Jessica can still create that exact one but she has beautiful beads and can create one of your choice!!!
All of the resin cameos and other embellishments are from Websters Pages. The trim is unknown.
I also used a piece of a doily, a cats eye ink pad and 2 wood banners. All unknown.
Life is definitely a journey and I hope you all have a fabulous one.

Secret Garden Tag with Pinque Peacock

Hi everyone! Today I am posting a tag for a challenge going on over at the

Now tags are not my thing and I went crazy trying to do this one!
You know that saying Go Big or go go Home? Well it does not work on a tag.
Thinking about my Mom and the wonderful Secret Garden she planted every year for her Grandchildren finally gave me the inspiration for this tag.

 I found this beautiful Graphic 45 Secret Garden Collection in my paper stash.
The sentiment card is from the same collection. Then I pulled out my Pinque Peacock stash
and found the beautiful purple butterfly pin and presto it got the creative juices flowing!!
Instead of using a standard round hole for the twine or ribbon to go through I covered it with the metal flower and strung the ribbon through the flower and pearl.  The small purple flowers are prima and the centers are butter cup liquid pearl glue. I don't know where I got the rose ribbon. Like most paper crafters I am a hoarder!!! LOL I totally enjoyed this tag making experience after I got inspired!
Come and join the challenge!!!!!

Crafty Kit Club at Pinque Peacock


Hi my crafty friends!!! I am posting for Pinque Peacock's
I am back with my second project from the May Kit
which is all about beading and jewelry.
The kit came with a nice clamp ring so I decided to turn it into a key ring.
99% of what you see was in the kit! Now I did add the ribbon and the one small
blue dangle. The first 2 longer strands I used just a standard bead thread wire. It made stringing those beautiful seed beads a breeze!!! Now remember I am still using the same kit that the charm bracelet from my post on the 17th came from so that tells you how much fabulous product is in each kit!!!
Here is the link again to the Crafty Kit Club
These kits are a great gift idea too if you have a crafty friend or family member!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Hi Everyone!!! Today I am posting for Pinque Peacocks

I am working with the 

Now there are a couple different kits available and everything you need is in the kit!! 
Here is a picture of my first project.

I did the charm bracelet first and it was alot of fun to play with!! The charm bracelet is easy to adjust to fit your wrists by just removing links. I re-purposed  some of the links to make the center charm hand down further. The 2 beaded dangles I put together using only items from the kit and a little quick drying glue.
This kit is so easy to use and would make a great gift for someone too!!
Go grab yourself one of the great may kits and have fun with it!!!
I will be back on the 20th with my 2nd project from the kit!!

Crafty Happiness!

Hello fellow crafters :)
I have been trying to branch out of my crafting comfort zone and this is another one of my firsts.
I decided to make a shadow box of my favorite crafty embellishments.
 
 
Now for the life of me I could not get the yellow cast off of the photo. My lighting is bad in my apartment and the weather is not good for an outdoor pic.
I started with a craft colored shadow box and painted it brown. I then used a prima cardstock and placed it in the back of the squares. I then used burlap and placed it over the cardstock.
Next in the upper left square I used 2 metal corners from Miriams Crafting supplies. I then took a beautiful Stick Pin from Pinque Peacock and turned it into a dragonfly using my favorite twine. (Trendy Twine). Now in the upper right square I used a wishing well from Prima. My grass is ribbon from 3 Girl JAM and the cute cardinal  is from a purchase from Blitzy.
The lower left is a beautiful bloom from Pinque Peacock. I then added a burlap button and butterfly pin and both are Pinque Peacock! The lower right is all prima and websters pages.
These are all things that make me happy:)
I love watching dragonflies, butterflies and birds. I love the old fashioned wells and have always wanted one. I love flowers of all kinds and Pinque Peacock is a joy to work with. The cameo holds my favorite saying. Now to get some of the beautiful flowers, buttons and stick pens head over to pinque peacock!!!!

Now before we get to the prize and how you can win it here is a pic of my Easter Card!
 I decided to do a Easter easel card. I started with a robins egg blue card stock in standard 8.5 by11 and folded it in half. Then you fold the top in half again. I always lay the card back down after folding into the standard half fold to embellish. You want it to look good laying down as well as in the easel position. I then cut a scalloped oval in hot pink and embossed it. When you adhere the oval you want to only glue the lower half down so that it can pop up in the easel position. Next I did an Easter cut with my cameo of that adorable bunny. I used pop dots to fasten it to the oval. Next I used 2 wooden eggs that were put out by Prima a few years ago. I know all the stampers will cringe about this but I used Spectrum Noir markers to color the eggs then added some shimmer glitter and let that dry. After it dried I then gave the eggs a coat of modge podge and allowed that to air dry. I then used left over pieces of card stock to adhere to the back side of the eggs. The Spectrum Noir Markers are available at Pinque Peacock. All products from Pinque Peacock will be linked to the location on the Pinque Peacock Store Page for your shopping convenience :)
I also added 2 cute butterfly beads to the oval. Before attaching the eggs I made paper corners and attached those to the lower 2 corners. Now after the top was finished and dry I got to work on the inside. All the papers are from a doodlebug designs 6x6 pad called Hello Spring. I started the inside by attaching the paper just like it was a half fold card. The only difference is the greeting is at the bottom of the page instead of the standard top position. I then added the beautiful blue Fabric Splendid Swirl as an eye catching anchor to hold the easel in place. The adorable
 blue butterfly stick pin is also from Pinque Peacock. Well there is the low down on my Easter card:) Next you will be going to Julie's Blog

The beautiful metal corner is from Miriams Crafting Supplies and that Metal Heart that is layered onto the tip of the heart is from Pinque Peacock. The cream pearls are from my stash and the teal bling is my old friend Stickles Glitter Glue.
