Valentine Make & Take - SATURDAY!


I know it's not the third SATURDAY of the month but it didn't seem right not having a little make and take just days before Valentine's Day. Join us SATURDAY from 10-2 for a little self taught project...make a card for someone special. We are using these cute little Pebbles die cuts with witty sayings like the one above and more!  Please join us. We will have a table set up ready for some fun. Everyone is welcome. 

And don't forget to pick up Homebaked Kitchens one of a kind, decadent and beautiful desserts while you are there.

Crate Paper - Chasing Dreams & Oasis


Chipboard Stickers

You all know about my love affair with Crate Paper.  I mean this company blows me away with their designs and trend setting art.  You thought you loved their swans....wait til you see Maggie's parakeet!  

12x12 Paper Pad
 The fresh colour.  The versatile designs.  Chasing Dreams has ME dreaming of layouts and projects galore.
Phase and Gold Foiled Flat Sticker Sheets are in stock
6x6 Paper Pad



 I brought in the basics of this line including 6x6 paper pads, 12x12 pads and chipboard and flat stickers.  This line is a must for any Maggie Holmes fan.  My girl crush continues.....

 Now have a look at Crate Papers Oasis line.  This collection speaks to me and my love of California.  Oh...don't you just wish you could be there, in Palm Springs, in a cute 'lil camper wearing a shape flattering one piece bathing suit!  Truly.  I decided to bring all loose sheets of 12x12 paper for this line....the papers are incredible and great for card makers too!  Pretty much the entire line is in.  Catch a wave on over to The Pickle.  Radical Dude.  (Ok.  Ok.  I'll keep chasing those dreams.)

Kim

PS...Lots of new goodies are rolling in from CHA (cough...cough...I mean Creativation).  Spellbinders fans will love the new dies (yes!  Including the rainbow and unicorn!) and there is a great new paper line from Jen Hadfield called Simple Life.  Those who love the wood tones will adore this line.

Classes - New Schedule is HERE!



I am thrilled to introduce a new teacher to The Pickle.  The gorgeous cards above were designed by the very talented, Hilary Henley.  I knew Hilary would be a wonderful and natural addition to our team.  Each year, Hilary has participated in our Tag Exchange and her tags were always filled with technique and I was constantly asking myself "how did she do that?".  Hilary is also a very active Zontian and you will often find Hilary teaching at their bi-annual card extravaganzas (btw...the spring date has been set - mark March 25 on your calendar!).  Without further ado, here is Hilary's first card class at The Paper Pickle!


Cards by Hilary
Be prepared to play and have fun creating gorgeous backgrounds using embossing folds, ink, spritzing, embossing powders and more!  These cards have a masculine feel but are versatile enough for any occasion.

Cost:  $18+ hst (includes a sweet treat from Homebaked Kitchen Co)

Cards by Debbie

Mini Album and Tin by Kim

I designed this mini album and tin just before Christmas as a sample for the store,  Because so many of your have expressed interest, I am happy to say this will be an upcoming class!  The tin is the size of a CD case (5.25x5.25") and houses a fun stitched circle garland so well.  There are 12 circles (with diameters ranging in size - 3", 3.5" and 4") to decorate with papers, photos, stamps, rub-ons and more. I chose colours that are gender neutral so make this project for a special boy, girl, pet or any loved one!

12x12 Layout by Laura
We had a great class on February 1st with Laura.  It was a mixed media layout and I know the students had a blast learning about a few new products!  Laura is busy prepping her next layout.  Mark your calendars for March 1st!  Photo and details to follow shortly.
