Art and Craft News / Dylusions
This means we can get crafty sooner with the new larger-than-life Dyary, fab new stickers and hilarious diecuts!
Below are all the newbies due to arrive next month (Feb 2018). Click this link to view all new Dylusions treasures or click each picture for details and to buy in advance...
The new Large Dylusions Dyary is 9x12 above, is the same size as the large Creative Journals. Perfect for use as a planner, memory keeper, to-do list, art journal, scrapbook, or even a business diary! Who needs to use a boring office timekeeper with plain blue lines and thin paper when you can have this on your desk to use every day?
The large Dyary has mixed media paper, strong sturdy cover (with space in the spine for a pen), large pocket in the front and elastic closure. Just like the small Dyary but bigger!
Speaking of the small (5x8) Dyary, it is having a makeover with fresh new artwork inside (see above). Both books are perpetual diaries with a week to an opening. No dates are added, just the days of the week, giving you the flexibility to use and plan for any day of the year at any time (in any order!).
Above: Dylusions Clips ... miniature artworks inside epoxy resin discs attached to useful attachers. Perfect as paperclips, bookmarks, journal markers or to pin to the corkboard!
Above are the two sheets of clear silicon stamps inside the new Dylusions stamp set... curly lines, useful letters, fab spot and arrows, am and pm, 4 reminder prompts (memories, don't forget, important, remember) and more!
To compliment the first set of mini Archival ink pads are these two sets... each 1"x1" stamp pad has a lid that stays closed and they click clack together into a mini tower. Archival ink dries permanent so it can be stamped then coloured with watercolours.
The colours in these sets are Pure Sunshine (yellow), Funky Fuchsia (dark pink), Polished Jade (blue green), Vibrant Turquoise and Squeezed Orange, Postbox Red, London Blue, Cut Grass (green). Each colour matches the Ink Sprays and Acrylic Paints.
Use the inks to colour these fabulous paper dolls! Mix and match the heads and bodies to create your own characters. All Dy Cuts (die cut shapes) are printed on high quality mixed media paper.
This colourful set of Dy Cuts is ready to add fun to any page! My favourites are the laughing cat, the tail-less mermaid (bottom left, could be trapeze artist too) and the survivor woman (she always looks fab in any colour).
As you may know, I love stickers! This new booklet from Dyan is no exception. Its filled with numbers, colours, dolls, arrows and colourful stickers for planners, diaries and calendars! A good mix of clear and white stickers to suit any purpose.
To stick everything down on your page, you need a reliable, non yellowing, quick drying permanent adhesive. I've gone through so many different brands and types and when Dyan introduced this little guy, I was over the moon.
Its little so its portable and doesn't dry out in the tube. Some larger glues (tapes included) can dry out before you even get to use them! The Dylusions Glue Stick by Ranger adheres paper and other porous surfaces (card, tissue, fabric to paper).
To store and carry all these new treasures and attach to your Dyary is this gorgeous fabric pencil case (aka accessory bag). Dyan says its a beautiful feeling strong thick fabric with a zipper enclosure... with a wide elastic band to sling around the Dyary front cover so you can carry everything easily, everywhere you go!
I'll get better photos after they arrive inStore. But don't let blurry photos fool you, the quality of every single Dylusions and Ranger product is excellent. You won't be disappointed!
On the 16th January 2018 will be more announcements from Tim Holtz and Dyan Reaveley (and hundreds of other brands/designers as its the week of the USA Trade Show). It happens every year... and its always super exciting!
Amazing new products are shown off (samples only most of the time, as they're not actually all made yet!), we discover that we need it all, then we have to wait as they get manufactured and sent to all the shops around the world (including mine).
If you see anything you'd like, ask me anytime and I'll find a way to get it for you.
Thanks for reading! Have a happy creative day!
