February 2024 Product Releases

February 2024 Product Releases

February has been a busy month for new products and inspiration from our favourite designers - Dina Wakley, Dyan Reaveley and Tim Holtz :)

Most of the arty treasures dreamed up by these three made by Ranger, Stampers Anonymous, Advantus Corp and Tonic Studios - so we know that the quality is there and the treasures will last for many many years! In fact, my first Distress Ink Pads bought way back in 2009 are still going strong - Tattered Rose, Tea Dye and Peeled Paint. They've been reinked a few times but the felt hasn't worn out. Not like my Jet Black Archival Ink Pad which I've recently thrown out and replaced with Tim's Black Soot one ... it was only 13 years old too! lol :P But like shoes, when you use something almost every single day of it's life, it is bound to get flat in places and soggy in others. Lucky I know just the shop where I could buy a new one :D lol Mine! ha ha ha
