4th Annual Christmas Tag Exchange

It's that time of the year again.....time to get excited for our 4th Annual ChristmasTag Exchange.  Honestly, I think this swap has built such momentum over the years and it is something that many of you look forward (I know I do!).  Last year we had two groups of incredible entries.  Let's see if we can get even more!  

Have a look at the past participant's creations (all wonderful because they were made by you!):
Please consider being apart of this incredibly fun exchange.  Its a calorie free swap with sweet rewards!

Here are the Details:
  • You will make 13 tags of the same design to trade with the other participants (12 will be traded with others and 1 will be kept for the store) ***This is a slight change in the rules.  I hope you don't mind!
  • You can use any product you like and the design can be as simple or elaborate as you like
  • Please call the store (519.351.5220) or email me (thepaperpickle@gmail.com) to register. You must register by Saturday, NOVEMBER 26
  • Your 13 tags are to be dropped off no later than 5PM on Saturday, DECEMBER 3
  • You can pick up your tags during store hours any day between DECEMBER 7-10
  • There is no cost to register or participate other than the cost of your product that you use
  • Those of you who use Paper Pickle product, let me know which product you used (on a little note with your submission) and you will be entered to win a Paper Pickle Prize Pack ($50 value).
You in? Hope so!  I cannot wait to see what you create!

More Important Dates to Remember:
  • This Friday (Nov 18) - Santa Claus Parade and we are open late (until 8pm!)

Christmas Class & Teasers

 With Zonta under our belts, it's time to get the Christmas classes going.  We will start with an afternoon class with Debbie.  If you are interested in attending, please give the store a call (519.351.5220) or pop in during store hours to register.

Christmas Cards by Debbie
Debbie will be working with Hero Arts Leafy Flourish stamp to show you how to create two gorgeous backgrounds.  This is such a versatile background stamp that can be used year round.  You will also be working with distress inks, dies, glitter and more.

Date:  Wednesday, November 16
Time:  1-3pm
Cost:  $18+hst (includes all supplies and a sweet treat from Homebaked Kitchen)
Required Supplies:  scissors, adhesive

Please note:  we are only offering this as an afternoon class at this point but if you are interested in an evening class, please let us know.  If we see enough interest we will certainly book an evening to accommodate all the working people out there.

Mini Album/Banner Project by Kim
This is just a little sneak peek of the project I am working on.  I hope to have the project finalized this evening and I will post details including date, cost, etc.  This is a 5.5x5.5 tin with a circular mini album/banner inside.  I designed it with the intention of giving this as a gift to my daughter.  I did choose colours so it may be gender neutral.  I'm almost there!

Advent Calendar by Laura
Now THIS is a project!  Laura has wowed me with this one.  It is a 14x14 advent calendar made by Kaiser Craft.  It is one that you will make and pull out year after year for your loved ones.  We are just finalizing the date and I am having a little trouble sourcing the calendar itself but I am remaining positive that we find them.  Details to come.....cross your fingers for me.

A few other "gift" style project classes are in their initial stages and I hope to reveal these soon!
