Hibernation in FULL Effect...

....and I'm loving it.  Don't let this time of the year get you down.....embrace it!  Get out your pretty paper and make a simple card or project.  I whipped up these cards using Carta Bella's and Authentique's new Valentine lines.  A little washi tape and glitter....and you're done.  Fun.  Cute.  Rewarding.  I say it was THE perfect way to spend the evening.

Hi Everyone.

The store will be closing at 3pm TODAY (Friday, Feb 9) due to the worsening road conditions.  I hope you understand.

The store will open again Saturday morning at 10am until 3pm.  Tonight could be the perfect night to hibernate and work on your Valentines!

The Oxides have Arrived

Woot. Woot. We've got to be one of the first stores in the area with the 12 NEW colours of distress oxide inks. They are incredible. I'm sure there are at least a couple colours that would compliment your collection. Need the whole collection (12 new colours)?  Save 18%!  

We also have lots and lots of new Valentine papers in from Carta Bella, pebbles, Crate Paper and more!  

Come and see me.... Open 10am-3pm SATURDAY!

Distress Oxides Shipping NOW + Store Update

Sooooooo......yes.  These beauties are shipping to The Paper Pickle as I type this!  I am SOOOOOO excited.  Such a great release of colours too!  I believe we will be one of the first stores in the area with this product. 

I thought I would have a little thank you for those who shop with me.  I know it can be exciting doing the pre-orders with companies on line but honestly, we often get our shipments in at the same time or even before these stores.  I appreciate those who wait to shop with me.  If you want brick and mortar store to exist, support them!  Anyone who orders all 12 colours will receive 18% off your order.  That is a pretty substantial savings! 

Anything Else you are Looking for?
So you have been watching all the videos from Creativation (formerly CHA) and you are drooling over.......?  Shoot me an email and let me know what is on your wish list.  I would be happy to get you a price.  Basically you can count on my pricing to be the US$ MSRP plus exchange (which is hovering around 1.3). 

Hilary's Card Class
This class is filling up quickly but we do have a few spots left.  This technique is incredible!  Please call the store or stop in during store hours to sign up.  We would love for you to join us.

Dates:  Wednesday Feb 7 from 6-8pm OR Thursday Feb 8 from 1-3pm

Valentine Mini Album Kit Available
I had a little fun on Sunday and created this beauty using the muslin bags we have at the store and some of the gorgeous new Valentine paper lines. 

The album measures 3x4 and is the perfect size for Instax photos and other little pictures you may have around the house. 
Kits are $15+HST.  Let me know if you are interested and I would be happy to prep a kit for you.
