I am excited to announce our store is back open. Thank you all for being incredibly patient while we relocated to Washington state. We added a few new items to the store so make sure you check it out :)
We wish those of you in the states the happiest Thanksgiving holidays!
I know the holiday season is upon us, but in the midst of all the seasonal chaos, we have a daughter who celebrates a birthday (two weeks before Christmas)! So in preparation for her big day, I made two birthday projects. The first is a birthday layout featuring the new gold foil flair button:
I adore these foil buttons oh so much!
My next project is a small gift bag:
I use the hearts flair button here to adorn the fabric rosette and I love the way the gift bag turned out! It’s perfect for holding a gift card, nail polish or any other treasures a 13 year old girl would cherish!!
Thanks for stopping by today! Make it a crafty one!!
Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am doing some preparation for my December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.
For this card, I started with Pink Paislee Merry & Bright 6×6 paper pad. I cut a tag and a 4×6 project life card from the paper pad. I then cut strips of paper for the side border to add some interest. I cut a snowflake tag on white and red paper using my Silhouette Cameo. I also cut the title using gold glitter vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo for the title “Hello Santa”. I doodled around all the edges with a black 0.8 American Crafts Black Pen and inked with black Memento Ink.
To finish off the card, I used The Crafty Pickle’s Black & White Color Pop Flair and applied it to the top of the snowflake tag. I added some sequins to the corner of the card from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your layout or cards gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse mix for this card. I layered the sequins and put red glitter stickle dots on top of some of the sequins to change the look a little. And finally, I tied a bow at the top of the snowflake tag to tie it all together!
I hope you enjoyed my Project Life card & are inspired. Look for some more blog posts showing my December Daily in the future!

Hi, Carrie here to share with you my latest scrapbook layout. This is my favorite time of the year. I love to see the leaves turning into beautiful fall colors. Where I live in Southern California there is not a lot of fall color. But only 90 minutes away in Bear Bear Mountain the colors change and it really feels like fall. The weather is cooler and it’s a great place to visit with family and friends. This month I spent a girls scrapbook weekend in Big Bear. I was super excited to create a Scrapbook Layout to document all the beauty of Fall and the time spent with great friends.
My favorite CTMH stamp set is “Fallen Leaves” This is the perfect set for stamping onto patterned paper and fussy cutting out the leaves. I also inked all the edges with Distress Ink.
I added a couple of TCP flairs to embellish my project. These cute little buttons are the perfect touch!
The leaves are falling, it’s time to be Thankful for family and friends. Get out there and document your fall fun adventures.
Hi Crafty Friends! It’s Lisa here today from Happy Paper & Ink to share a new Project Life card that I created. I am in the beginning stages of working on my December Daily album, so that is what inspired me to create this card.
For those of you not familiar with December Daily, Ali Edwards created it to document the days of your December. Basically, you do a page for each day spotlighting the activities of the day to include your family traditions, etc. This will be my first year to do this, and I am super excited!
To finish off the top of the card, I used The Crafty Pickle’s Black & White Color Pop Flair and wrapped a ribbon around it. I added some sequins from The Crafty Pickle. Adding any of the Relish Mixes to your layout or cards gives a fun, sparkly and thin embellishment. These come in all colors, I used the Magical Mouse mix for this card.
Hey there crafty friends! It’s Stephanie here today to share my latest layout.
I am trying my hardest to get caught up on older photos that need to be scrapped and getting my kids’ albums organized! It’s a big undertaking but I love making scrapbook pages & revisiting old memories. This one is one of my favorites!
My son loved his red rain boots when he was three and in them he discovered the love of jumping in puddles! I will never forget how happy he was when we returned home from an errand & he was able to splash in the puddles!
This flair button is the perfect compliment to my page!! It is the “Favorite Memory” button from the I added it on top of a chipboard circle which was placed on top of a cork circle for added dimension. I love adding thread on my page to lend some texture.
A few more fun embellishments and another page & memory are scrapped & ready to go in the album!
I am here to share my latest Pocket Letter created with goodies from TCP!
I fell in love with the Circus flair set when I saw it in the shop so I let it inspire this letter. When I don’t have paper or stamps to fit the themes I want to create with, I utilize Pinterest and Google image searches to find unique pictures and clip art to use in my letters. I create my own collage sheet of sorts by copying and pasting the images into Microsoft Word documents and resizing them to fit my needs. For this letter, and many that I do, I enjoy juxtaposing vintage imagery with more current clip art for a unique look. I created this letter using the clip art I found and fussy cut, as well as the Circus flair, sticky pickle spots, and the Disney Relish Sequin Mix from the shop (I picked out the Mickey head sequins so I was left with the fun black spotted ones and the red and yellow to match my color scheme in my shaker pocket). Check out some detail shots below and don’t forget to click on the photos to see them larger!
I can’t wait till the shop reopens so I can add some more fun goodies to my stash! I haven’t been to a circus since I was small–but this theme was so fun to work with and I never know what will inspire me next from The Crafty Pickle. I hope I inspired you too!
Hi friends, Joann here today with you! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Today I am sharing with you something that I have been working on for a craft fair that I will be participating. I shared this project last year in December, a step-by-step on how to make the box treat, but this time around I used my Cricut and a couple of the CTMH Cricut Cartridges to decorate my boxes.
Here are a couple that I’ve made so far…
I used the CTMH Artistry Cartridge to cut out my snowflakes out of some glitter card stock and added some foam dimensional to add a bit of dimension to them.
I took the Treats of Friendship stamp set, also from Close to My Heart, to stamp the cute image on my tag.
Happy Tuesday y’all!!!
Kristin is here with some of her favorite pickle products ….I love everything that she makes but some of my fav’s I am going to post today in hoping that the store will be up and running soon!!!!
Flair Flair Flair is always at the top of my list ….it is the Bread & Butter pickles for me …my most favorite!!! You can add a piece of flair to almost any project you are working on!!! She makes them so flat that is hardly added any bulk to your page …and I love that about her flair!!!
My all time favorite flair is the pop color flair …she has those in jest about every color!!! Love Love Love!!!
Then the December Daily Flair do not even get me started on how wonderful it was to use in my Elf Book last year!!!
And then the relish on top you can always sprinkle on some sequin to make your project extra special!!!!
These are two of my favorite things at The Crafty Pickle Store!!!!
