Want the Latest Tim Holtz Product at an AWESOME price?!?!

Exciting Product News from Ranger and Tim Holtz!!

We are SO happy to announce to you, incase you have not heard yet. . . a brand NEW set of Markers by Tim Holtz...in the ever popular Distress Ink Colors!!!

Ranger is thrilled to announce the new Tim Holtz® Distress™ Markers: water-based inks for coloring, journaling, stamping and more.

The dual tip markers are ideal for many coloring techniques:

• use the brush tip for coloring, stamping and shading

• use the detail tip for journaling and drawing

• use to color directly on rubber and clear stamps

Distress Markers are available to match the

Distress palette of 36 colors and White Picket

Fence. (YEAH!! A White Marker!!) So, 37 colors of markers!

The colors will coordinate with Distress Inks,

Distress Stains, Distress Crackle Paint, Distress

Stickles™ and Distress Embossing Powders.

It's amazing how Tim Holtz can look at a product and see how it can be made easier to use, and more versatile to use. Here are a few more cool things these markers can do...

They are water based so they react to water for blending.

The color is translucent

You can stamp with black archival ink, and color in the design or you can use them directly on the stamp with no need to rush for fear you will loose the ink.

No more worring about "light to dark" or needing 12 colors of green for proper shading...these markers can be blended and you can even work from dark to light.

AND Tim Holtz has, or course, created a great video using the markers and showing great photos of the colors. For an even better look, check out Tim's video, his blog, or the Ranger Blog!

here is a you-tube from CHA


We have a limited supply of these coming, but we have another order in the works, so the sooner you order, the sooner you will get yours!!

Retail on the Distress Marker set of 37 with the case is $114.99 BUT....If you place your pre-order NOW- we will get them to you for just $99.99

Makes you want to get a little inky doesn't it?

Thanks and take a little time today to get your CRAFTY ON!!

hello February!

Hi there everyone!  WOW!  January sure went fast.   Here we are already on the second day of February, and Valentines Day just a little under two weeks away.

Speaking of Valentines Day, here are a couple of pictures of the kids heart wreath class the store will be having this sunday.   The wreath is so cute, and would make a lovely gift for mom this valentines day!

Also, we have already received the board for the March stamp of the month class, so I am going to post pictures of the board, and the stamp sheets, in case anyone wants to preorder stamps!  Just send us an email, or give us a call, and as always, we'll get your stamps added to the class order!


Everyone have a wonderful afternoon, and enjoy the weather.  I hear this weekend we can expect more rain.
