Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy.!!!

 And breeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeath...!!!!

Yes it's here.

The day has finally come when I can reveal this.....


Many of you already know I have been appointed as a Signature Designer for Ranger, a lifetime ambition for me and I am so excited to reveal the products I will be launching at CHA.

First up is my new range of spray inks. They have been especially made to my requirements and are simply frikkin fabuloso. They are in my trade mark bright colours as you can see from the following chart.


And here's what the bottle looks like, with my label on it....Cool or what.??


AND to complement them we have teamed up with the fabulous Crafters Workshop. I just love their stencils and have used them for a long, long time. I feel they are the best in the industry and I am over the moon to work alongside them. As is totally me, they are all hand drawn, for the eclectic look that I love.


Each stencil comes in two sizes...9 x 12 in and 5 x 8 in

As well as stencils for my backgrounds etc I wanted to have some some of my trade mark border designs.

love love love dots and checks


distressed harlequins


random dots and flower border


of course my favourite leaves


This one I haven't stopped using


And have you ever seen all sizes of alphabet in one jumble.?


Here's some backgrounds in progress. You will notice that the stencils are not only fabulous for spraying through, but are perfect for doodling as well.














And my final reveal are my stamps. Six sets that all work in conjunction with my previous sets, manufactured, of course, by the wonderful Stampers Anonymous.

Bordering on the edge... can't get enough of borders. The solid one on the end is for stamping in one colour ink or paint and doodling over the top. The alphabet makes a wonderful frame. Everyone needs a swirly swirl. and the doodle borders will fit in almost anywhere.


Bits of this - love this one. The little insects are such fun for stamping in unexpected places. The plants make fabulous borders and hair. And the heads...oh my.!! They are bigger than previous heads but will still mix and match with the others, just imagine skull head on Curious Corrin's body, lol. The 2 at the bottom are perfect for adding other stamps as hair, especially stamps from the next set.


Doodle parts - more solid leaves to doodle over. The swirls feature a lot in my journaling and are ready doodled for you. Larger toadstools are always a must. The arrows make perfect frames and page corners and the part flower, well what can I say.


Inbetweenies - are exactly what they say they are. bits to go in between your journaling and your borders.

                                             

Background Love - you can never have enough backgrounds, fabulous for edging as well.


Word Love - words, you just got to have words haven't you. Large and small,  some solid, some not so solid. Use them singly, group them together, make a background, love them...


A few journal pages





They are all up on our website so you can see and read about them in their entirety.

 So there we have it. I hope you are all as excited about it as I am. I am positively giddy and still keep pinching myself at what I have achieved. From my kitchen table and dreams of teaching to being a part of THE best company ever - RANGER. Obviously the bestest ever news so far is that my products will now be available worldwide, from every Ranger retailer, so you too will be able to get your grubby little mitts on the delightful goodness.

 I want to thank you all for your support and well wishes, it is so nice to know that you are all behind me, showing me encouragement throughout my journey.

To all of you I salute you... 

I am going to leave you with my favourite ever quote, from Louisa May Alcott.

."You are an extraordinary woman. 

How can you expect anything ordinary to happen to you" 


Enjoy xx

Liz (Chubby Frog) said...

Love the new stencils and stamps,can't wait to have a go with these. Agree with Sue that we need to get more colours in the sprays (basically the original Dylusions colours). Bit worried though that there's no mention of the acrylic Dylusions paints that we've all become addicted to. Will these be a later release?
Hope you enjoy CHA - and huge congrats on everything you've achieved.
