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

··· Here are the highlights of February 2024 ···

Dina Wakley MEdia

Beautiful prints of portraits, suns, moons, typographic patterns and meaningful sayings on ultra clear transparency sheets. Six fresh colours to add to the wonderful range of artists' quality thick buttery acrylic paint (these bottles have a fine tip to enable doodling and squeezing colour directly onto a paint brush to create those gorgeous rainbows of colour in one sweep! Cling rubber stamps of frames and people in various styles plus a kitten in a circle looking totally adorable. Stencils in three new patterns are added to our collection of growing Dina Arty Goodness in the form of 4-pointed flowery stars, 2 long leafy sprigs and bumpy dotted lines for a splash of fun.

Happy 10 year anniversary to Dina Wakley! She's been working with Ranger for 10 years and to celebrate all year long, is giving us regular videos / demos on how to make art, use her products and have a wonderfully arty time! Here is Dina's YouTube link :)

Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions

Another must have selection of arty treasures by Dyan include pretty shimmery colours, dark paints, stencils and stamps plus an essential for all craft corners, a square acrylic stamping block with a wavy scallop along one edge. 

The amazing tangled designs Spiralicious, Wickerlicious and Daisy Dreams are such a fun designs to draw, the piral alone takes hours and hours, so having a stamp to do the drawing makes good use of our precious time. Filling an 8x8 Dylusions journal page well while at the same time, leaving space for our other ideas and borders.

The stencils are original designs too so I've included measurements in each of the descriptions in case you'd like to match them to anything. Love the dark colours of Dylusions acrylic paint, they compliment the bright colours, pearly Dusts and Shimmer sprays beautifully.

The new large 7x7 inch square journal block is great! It is thicker acrylic than the original Dylusions block and is well balanced for it's size, is easy to hold and use. The gridlines etched on one side help with making windows, writing quotes, marking out lines and placement of stamps.
