Product Highlight Part One

Last week saw the release of my seasonal offerings in the Dylusions line.

First up was the pad of colouring sheets

You can colour in the whole sheet, if you like. I did these on the plane!

Or you can cut the images out to use on cards or tags

This is my favourite way to make cards. I just fold one of my size 10 or size 12 mixed media tags in half and decorate.

Here I made them into tags.

Tomorrow I'll highlight the stamp and stencil set Dear Santa for you.

The lovely Sandra has highlighted them on her blog as well, go give her some love. See it HERE

New Christmas product launch

Whoop whoop

Its Christmas at Ranger Headquarters and I have a few fabulous things to share with you.

Today we are releasing my Christmas line.

First up we have a stamp stencil combo...Dear Santa.
Its a collaboration between me and Jay and I frikkin love it
 The stamp is in clear silicone, for perfect positioning on cards and tags.

And the stencil consists of a background and separate border

The second item is a book of Christmas colouring sheets.
Oh yes! the last book flew out so we have bowed to pressure to bring you more.

 This one consists of full page images as before, as well as half size, perfect for cards or tags
I will be doing a blog spotlighting samples from these two products, to give you tons of inspiration.

Both of these products release today, but remember you need to give them time to filter through to the stores.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas xx

Adventures at a trade show...

Yes its time for the start of the Autumn tour and it always kicks off with the Collins Show, a trade show in Orlando.
The year Ranger where teaching for the full day on the Monday, so I left it to the last minute before flying out.

Leeds to heathrow

Heathrow to Charlotte

Charlotte to Orlando...24 hours in total

A quick hello and straight to bed.

Luckily I didn't have the early morning spot. hat fell to the lovely Dina, so I didn't have to drag myself out of bed too early.\

I had a respectable 10.30 start, lol. Of course I forgot to take any pictures during the class, but here's a picture of the project I was teaching.

A simple book made from insert sheets, decorated with my new Halloween, stamp/stencil combo, Eat, drink and be scary.

Tim was up for the next class and the rest of the designers gatecrashed the proceedings, lol.

Here we all are during the set up.

Wendy and Dina

Tim and Alain 


The mess.

I seem to have lost the picture of our Sales Manager, the lovely Coleen, but she's included here on this one.

Tims class was Christmas, yay my fave.

And here's my finished projects. Not the best photos, but I was quite traumatised by the use of glitter and shiny foil !!!!

Anyway, I did my best and I'm sure Our Ben will be pleased to have them in the shop for display.

As usual, there is always a disaster with me. This trip it came early on as one of the temporary veneers on a front tooth decided that it was the perfect time to dislodge itself, leaving me with a smile worthy of any Hillbilly granny!!!. Cue the very embarrassed no smiling look, much to every ones hilarity.

Then it was time for the big clean up and we all headed back to the airport, venturing to our various destinations.

Mine was Ranger Headquarters and I landed to a cup of tea about 1.30 this morning.

So I am here, safely ensconced in my office working on top secret things as usual. It will be head down and hard at it. Well, okay, there may be the odd trip for Halloween goodies, I confess.

I'll keep you updated.

This weekend I will be flying out to New Braunfels in Texas to teach at the lovely Susan's store Scrapbook'n'more. These will be small, intimate classes as it was a last minute booking, so if yon prefer the personal touch get yourself booked on and join me in the fun.

Enjoy xx
