Emoji Love & More

Simple Stories - Emoji Love
Page Flags
 Do you have a favourite tween/teen in your life that is crazy about emojis and unicorns and donuts?  Well I've got one of those (a tween who acts like a teen...Lord help me.) and she is going absolutely nuts for all the new product that is arriving at her mom's store, The Paper Pickle.
Emoji Love
Lines Journal
 And this product is not just for the youngins'.  This lined journal stole my heart.  It measures 5x8.25" so it is THE perfect size in my opinion.  Lots of room to write but not too bulky.
Emoji Love
Sticker Tablet
 The Emjoi Love Sticker Tablet is incredible.  The sheer number of stickers is amazing.  Perfect for cards, planners, layouts, you name it!
Emoji Love
Sticky Notes
Ok.  Check out the sticky notes.  The note with the little turd guy got a rise out of my kids.  It caught their eye and they quickly smiled and looked my way to see my reaction.  We had just had a big discussion about "that" word not being appropriate for kids.  Well.....maybe that one just has to go to work with mom!  Surely Trevor can't stay mad at me long with he sees the adorable, smiling turd.  Ha.

I have a customer who special orders from me and she often chooses items from Doodlebug.  This is a company that I sometimes forget about just given my addiction to more neutral colours but I am always pleasantly surprised when it arrives.  Their colours are so fresh and the designs are adorable and the quality is wonderful.  I think it is time to add more colour to my life.  My tween went bonkers for all of this!

There may be a few other items from Doodlebug in store now.  Why don't you come in and have a look?  The store is FULL of beautiful product right now.


PS...Any of you die hard Tim fans out there, will be thrilled to know that the Distress Oxide inks are beginning to arrive at The Paper Pickle.  We have 7 out of the 12 colours and we are impatiently waiting for the balance.  I have played a little and they are so fun.  You can use them like a regular stamp pad (I thought they stamped even better than the regular Distress Inks) but the real magic is when you "play".  Check out Jennifer McGuire's video.  She shows you how versatile these inks really are.

Easter Egg-citement is HERE

Adorable rubber stamp from Gourmet Stamps 
Easter is here and we have some beautiful products that any"bunny" would love.  Here are a few items that will bring a smile and encourage those creative minds!

Watercolour Pencils and Water Pens
These watercolour pencils tins are so beautiful and so easy to use.  You can use them with a standard brush with water or try our water pens seen here.  Just squeeze the sides and you have an amazing controlled flow.  Brilliant and SO fun for all ages!
Smash Books are BACK!
This is a product I have raved about for years and years.  I think I have about 4 books on the go.  You all know about the planner craze right?  Well these smashbooks were the quick and dirty style of scrapbooking before the planner revolution.  Go to your shoe box of ticket stubs and cards and "smash" them!  No complicated layouts to contemplate.....just wicked fun.  Best part?  They are less than $20 each.

Here is a photo of someone's smashbook that they shared online.  But I will have mine in the store this week so you can see what it is all about.  Jules and I have been smashing since December 2011.  Never have I seen a product that appeals to such a wide range of ages.  Tween, teen, mom, grandma....such fun!

Homebaked Kitchen's Sugar Cookies

So you know I like to gush about my sibling's talents, right?  Well check this girl out!  Jen blows me away with her attention to detail.  Incredible!  Side note....these will go FAST so pop in early so not to be disappointed.
