We're back here in Jersey and settling back in from our trip to Phoenix, Arizona for the annual Creativation Show by the Craft & Hobby Association. Just as always, the show is great fun, seeing familiar faces, launching new products, and educating show attendees on all the great ways our new products can be used. A lot of hard work and preparation goes into this show every year, but seeing how excited everyone gets makes it all so rewarding. We had such a wonderful time, that we want to share that excitement with all of you on our blog! Be sure to check back during the next two weeks to see highlights and recaps of the show!
In 2012 Dyan Reaveley and Ranger debuted the Dylusions line of products in the craft industry, and each year since then the collection of bright colors and innovative products has continued to grow.
For this challenge we have selected a group of artists to embrace the sassy style of this signature line by incorporating a selection of the products that now make up its unique assortment.
We have asked each artist to create a piece using Dylusions products. This group of entries will showcase unique creative styles and will be displayed in Ranger booth #1534 during Creativation.
A big thank you to all of the participating artists for all the time and effort they have put into this challenge.Check out what beautiful and inspiring pieces we received this year from our very talented group of designer artists!

Before the show started on Saturday, students were thrilled to go an attend Dyan’s Distinctly Dylusional workshop where they had the opportunity to learn and get their hands on the brand new Dylusions Dyalog program! Within the class, they worked in the new Dyalog Insert Books, creating backgrounds with Ink Sprays, Paints, Stencils, and more!
The Creativation 2018 Innovations showcase proudly displayed the new Dylusions Dyalog Program! The four sided display showed how the entire new system works together. Start with one of the two new Dyalog Covers, choose desired Dyalog Insert Books, add Dyalog Pocket Inserts, and put it all together with the Dyalog Elastic Bands.
Dyan was very busy while demonstrating this year with so many new products! In addition to the new Dylusions Dyalog program, she released Dylusions Shimmer Sprays, Washi Tapes, more Paint Pen colors, Stamps, Stencils, and more!
The booth was sure to showcase not only all these lovely new products, but also great samples to get people's creative juices flowing!
Be sure to check back in this week and next week for more fun product recaps!
