It's ALL Happening!!



Well hello there.  We've been friends so long that I'm sure you know my patterns by now.  No blog posts for weeks?  Yep.  That means this girls has been up to some SERIOUS business!  Wedding stationery is being created with care.  Charity events (Zonta) are being thought out and successfully executed.  New orders are being entered and added into the store.

Today I'll share some of the new products now in stock at The Pickle.  I don't know WHAT happened but it all arrived at once and I mean A LOT of product is here in time for Mother's Day, birthdays and Retrofest, etc.  Got an itch for a little daytripping or a walk downtown?  NOW is the time!

Memorybox & Poppystamp Spring Release

This was an incredible release.  Great underwater dies.  Adorable baby dies.  And as always, beautiful florals and butterflies.  Have a look at just a few that have arrived!  Note, these are not to size....many are larger/smaller than they appear here.























Stamps - Magenta, Power Poppy & Penny Black
So much has come in that I think I need to do another post tomorrow to do these stamps justice.  But for those who love to stamp and play and colour, here is a little teaser for you.

Magenta



Beautiful Magenta stamps have arrived.  You guys loved them so much, I HAD to order in more.  And the timing was perfect as there was just a new release.  These are the perfect stamps for those who like to play.  I had fun using these on my Zonta card last weekend (photos to come).

Power Poppy
Incredible Card by Katie Sims -  Power Poppy Designer


Power Poppy Stamps is a new line to the store.  Many of my friends have been telling me about this company for years and I finally gave in.  Over a dozen new sets are here - perfect for the person who likes to colour.  These designs with matching sentiments are awesome!

Penny Black

Penny Black is another company we have been carrying since the beginning.  I have brought in some great cling stamps including this design by Mo Manning.

I'm so exited about the amazing new product in the store.  Stop in and have a little look for yourself.  Homebaked Kitchen also has great NEW gift ideas including:  pencil boxes and wraps, gorgeous tea towels, aprons, mugs, canisters and more.  We've got you covered for gifts for special people!!

Enjoy the sunshine!!

Magenta - A Canadian Company with STYLE

Magenta Style Design - Clover
 A beautiful assortment of Magenta Style stamps, stencils and peel offs have arrived.  We have been carrying Magenta since day 1.  13 years later, Magenta is still a staple and there are many reasons why:

  • Beautiful designs
  • Canadian made (in Quebec)
  • High quality prooducts
  • Backed by people who are passionate about the hobby
Have a look at some of the cling mount stamps we have brought in.

Magenta Style - Papyrus

Magenta Style Design - Thistle

Magenta Style Design - Wildflowers

Magenta Style - Umbels
(Pauline used this stamp in her latest card class)

Magenta Style - With Sympathy & Clovers
by Debbie Gaetz (My Artsy View)




Another Magenta product that is creating huge attention in the paper crafting world is Nuance.  There  are 15 water based powdered dies that create gorgeous effects when spritz with water.  I will admit that I have only played a little with these but they are fun!  If you like to "play" when you create, this product is for you.  Maybe we should have a class  using these....what do you think?


Hope all is well and you had a joyous Easter.
