My love of Alice.....



My love of Alice

This months #picklepack is inspired by Couture Creations range Enchanted Tea Party and my love of Alice in Wonderland. As soon as I saw the announcement that this range was being released, I knew that I had to create a pack with this theme in mind.

My love of the original illustrations of Alice in Wonderland stretches back many years, even as a much younger artist, I studied them at college and recreated my own interpretations into pen and ink drawings on a massive A2 mural.

So of course, throughout my crafting life I have always been drawn to all things Alice.

Not only does this pack contain some amazing 12 x 12 papers but also the things that really remind me of the original Alice stories, the potion bottles, clocks, keys and soft blue seam binding with ivory lace too.

My BoHo Dreams...

Whilst deciding upon the theme for the April Pickle Pack, I fell in love with the new Prima range Rose Quartz. It inspired me with its boho (bohemian) style. The shades of grey and pink mixed with black highlights and the feathers and flowers. Chipboard is always a favourite in our Pickle Packs, whether it be painted, inked or left plain, though my thought process was boho the dreamcatcher chipboard and all the other embellishments would suit many styles.

Little Birdie chipboard dream-catcher
Prima Rose Quartz puffy sticker
All found in Pickle Paper Patch April Pickle Pack 

The pack includes some charms and beads in a rose gold effect finish with the pink crystal resin druzy flatbacks too it adds extra sparkle and coordinates with the other metallic shades in the theme. There are so many projects you can make with just one pack, with 8 double sided papers and such a vast array of embellishments, stickers and cards this pack is full of beautiful coordinated items. I have considered all levels of ability when choosing the selection of products in this Pickle Pack enabling all crafters to have a go, from beginner to expert. 


Just for fun I have also added a simple 'sketch' diagram, the concept or even challenge being that you interpret this into whatever you would like to make, be it a card, scrapbook page, pocket letter, mixed media project or anything else you are planning. Use the sketch to map out product placement to add items to your project from your own craft stash or simply use the contents of Aprils Pack. Pop photographs of your finished pieces over to our Facebook page or email them to me at gallery@picklepaperpatch.com and we can add them to our customer gallery!

Welcome to Pickle Paper Patch

Hello and welcome to our Pickle Pack, our hand selected paper craft kit.
To introduce myself, my name is Jane, I live in sunny North Wales (where it actually rains quite a lot!!). I am the owner of Pickle Paper Patch and I am passionate about paper crafts. 
I love to create and explore lots of crafts but paper is my favourite and the one I always come back to. 
There are so many fantastic brands worldwide that sometimes it feels hard to choose products, 
so I plan to bring you a selection of coordinating papers and embellishments from a range of 
designers for you to make amazing projects each month. 
The idea of bringing monthly subscription boxes for paper crafting has been a dream of mine for some time, but finally with the help of some lovely friends I have been able to fulfil my dreams and here we are with our very own Pickle Packs!
Inside each pretty Pickle Pack you will find at least 15 different items for paper crafting with financially a great saving compared to unit or recommended retail prices (rrp).
Do you want to show off your projects? Or would you like to see things other paper crafters have created? Visit our Facebook page and share them on our wall or email them to gallery@picklepaperpatch.com and we will add them to our website -you can add a short description too!
From time to time we will be offering some free prize draws or test products -just use our hashtag #picklepack on social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) to be in with a chance of winning a free gift.
