more studio g announcements and ranger CHA releases

good morning!!! i had a tutorial planned for today but it will have to wait as we just have way too much to cover!!! so grab a cup of coffee and read on...

we'll start with studio G news:

yesterday you saw the two holiday series of $1 clear stamps available now for preorder. In addition to those i will have TWO new ink sets - one will be halloween/fall colors and one will be christmas/holiday. if you were iffy on ordering the first set because they are, after all, only $1 i can tell you that now that i have had a chance to play with them i am thoroughly impressed and totally on board with them! i have begun hearing from several of you that purchased them as well and so far the reviews are good. i will get those up for preorder today or tomorrow at the latest (keep in mind the uncooperative 2 year old who is at this moment giving daddy hell in home depot - i armed him with frosted animal crackers though and have not heard back so i think it worked...)

next up on the studio g front is SUPER exciting news - we have glitter glue. YES $1 bottles of glitter glue, larger than stickles AND - this is so exciting - i have been chosen as the ONLY online retailer who will carry it as a sort of market test. these will ONLY be available at a few joannes, one small brick and morter store in cleveland and here. The first set is in halloween colors:

fingers crossed for a xmas set!!

Now let's move on to Ranger CHA release news - while we're talking about glitter glue first up on the ranger front is a slew of new glitter glues. AND YES i am pretty sure it will be necessary to have them all! no pics yet BUT here are the descriptions:

popular signature Ranger artists and your favorite glitter

i do not have pics of all the colors yet but you can at least get an idea of the tim holtz ones because the colors are the same as his other items. however it sounds like the look of them will be very unique.

next up for ranger - white and metallic crackle paints - if you have not used these yet you are really missing out and i am TOTALLY excited to get white and metallics - just in time for christmas projects! i will have some tutorials on the crackle paints coming up and will probably wait for these to come in so they can be included. meanwhile there are samples in the gallery on my website.

finally - a mini mister organizer - now this is a small thing but OH SO USEFUL if you are like me and LOVE the pearl mists using perfect pearls.

there is also an artist line of paints and brushes by claudine hellmuth but i will not be carrying those unless requested.

my orders for the studio G items has already been submitted and i will be placing a ranger order as soon as we are allowed. so look for them on my website and look for special discounts when you order stickles and crackle paints in sets.

and now there is lots to do to get ready so i am off - tutorial tomorrow - another great acetate card for you - you won't want to miss it!!
