New Dylusions releases for Summer CHA

So, here I am sat in a hotel near Manchester airport, ready for my long flights tomorrow.

The idea was, relaxing drive down, early night., refreshed for the long days travel to Los Angeles.

The reality was running round like a blue arsed fly, grabbing samples, flinging dresses into suitcases, queueing for hours in the bank ( don't even go there), having my roots done...the brown was coming through..How ruuuude!!! Finishing off the brochure list, saying my goodbyes to my kiddywinks...hmmm...sorry young adults, Buying mens Ugg slippers cos nothing else will get over my broken toes without causing me to scream after 30 mins. Can you believe it £80 for a pair of slippers...wtf??? But you know what...worth every frikkin penny!!

Err what else.?? Oh yes spending the drive down editing photos and typing out the instructions for my CHA class, not easy when Mr Babe of Deliciousness is careering around bends on country lanes!!!

So we finally get here, gorgeous room, four poster bed, bottle of the best vimto and ready to relax, only to finally check my emails (those on O2 will know we have had no phone signal all day) to find my new Dylusions releases have already been leaked. !!! How very dare they?? What is the world coming to when your own sneek peeks get sneek peeked !!!!!

So instead of chilling and enjoying the ambience me thought I had better offer you all a blog post and pretty damn quick at that, lol. Unfortunately I can't show you many samples until I land at the other side of the pond, as they are all beautifully wrapped in bubble wrap and stuffed...err sorry positioned into my case. I do promise though as soon as I get to the other end, I will release there fabulousness on you all!!!

First up I am releasing 4 stencils large and small. All with a Christmas theme, but will co-ordinate perfectly with the ones you already have.

First up starry starry night...large and small stars...who could resist?


Ho Ho Holly.. a combination of words and holly...

Let it snow...an abundance of snowflakes with a candy stripe border.

And finaly...Oh Christmas Tree... need I say more

The stencils, of course are the same size as before...5 x 8 in and 9 x 12 in, comprising a border and an inner background.



Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh...it won't let me upload any photos tonight. Noooooooo don't do this to me!!!!

I will continue, but you will have to use your imagination, lmao!!!

Next I have 4 stamp sets being released. Again all Christmas themed

we kick off with a set of fabulous backgrounds...
2 lots of stars, holly and fabby forest of trees...



then onto Christmas borders...baubles, holly, and trees to name a few..



Christmas accessories, comprises hats, moustaches and beards amongst other things...



And finally Christmas words...but none of your simple Merry Christmas from me, of course, expect my usual dry sense of humour to rear it's head, lol



And how could we forget my how to book... heres the descriptionDylusions Book


The new “My Creative Journal Journey” book by Dyan Reaveley is just like having Dyan by your side, showing you how she creates her original art journal pages. The 8.5″ x 5.5″ book is chock-full of inspiration, step-by-step photos and instructions to walk crafters through inking, painting and journaling techniques.

Oh, Dyan ... I hope you do indeed get some rest before your upcoming schedule goes into full swing!
I'm so excited that you've done a book!! I'm not able to be in your US classes after all, so, I will have your book to pretend I'm in one - yea!
Safe travels!

Saw them, loved them, got to have them. Can't wait to see what you did with them! Heading to Chicago to meet my girlies who are at CHA next week. Wish I was coming to see everything in person. I am sure they will tell me all about it. Take care of that foot. Feet really are important. They can set the mood for the whole day. A little vino helps for the pain...

Helen said...

LOL! You may have been peed off about the leak of the sneak peeks, but we were all delighted haha!! (Hmm, I think it was your naughty colleagues at Ranger!) Can't wait for it all, especially that journal. Ooooooooh :-)

texasbarb said...

First...BROKEN toes??? What happened...this is NOT good for all the CHA walking!!!

Second...Thanks for the un-sneak peek...LOL!! I've been checking and checking your blog...several times a day the last few days looking for peeks. Then I got the word Ranger had information. The bad thing was the pictures were too small to see.

So...you have indeed shown me the 1st pictures of the new stencils & stamps...which I LOVE. As soon as I saw the mustaches I thought of crazy Kate and Kaz...LOL!!

I know for sure I MUST get my hands on your book and PERFECT journal!!!

Safe travels!!
