Creativation 2019 | Pour it Over Designer Challenge

February 4th, 2019

The Designer Challenge this year at Creativation, Dina Wakley “Pouring it Over” brought a lot of unique and beautiful pieces of mixed media art to the Ranger booth. Dina Wakley has been a Ranger Signature Designer since 2014 and champions a line of mixed media craft products under the Dina Wakley MEdia brand. Her colorful and abstract style focuses on white space, organic shapes, and loose expressive marks. We couldn’t wait to see how these guest artists, personally selected by Dina herself, used and interpreted Dina Wakley Media products in their work.

The focus of the challenge was to highlight various Dina Wakley MEdia products, particularly the new Pouring Medium and Cell Creator. To accomplish that, guest designers were sent a variety of products, but we’re allowed to include any Dina Wakley MEdia product.

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!

Creativation 2019 Recap

January 31st, 2019

Things have begun to settle back down here at Ranger Industries now that everyone has returned home from the 2019 Creativation Show in Phoenix, Arizona. Everyone really enjoyed getting to see their crafty friends, meet new friends, learn all about the newly releases products, and spend time learning and educating themselves on all the fun new products. It’s always so rewarding to see the hard work through out the year pay off at this big event!

Many of us here at Ranger flew in early to start getting the booth ready for the show days. A lot of hard work and planning went into getting the booth figured out and ready to ship. It was especially exciting this year because Ranger Industries was celebrating our 90th Anniversary!

Creativation 2019 Sneak Peek Day 7 | New Simon Hurley create. Products

January 18th, 2019

Today is the last day of Creativation Sneak Peeks! Ranger is excited to announce Simon Hurley as our newest Signature Designer! Simon has partnered with Ranger to create a line of high-quality crafting supplies, branded Simon Hurley create., that are perfect for cardmakers. The line is a collection of go-to products that you will consistently be reaching for featuring Simon’s unique and playful style, in a beautiful range of colors you will want to have close by. “My goal is to make products that enhance the creative experience and make you want to get inky and create.”
Simon Hurley has been creating and crafting his whole life. When he was younger he would sit for hours at a time making origami sculptures, paper beads, stuffed animals (crocheting), and polymer clay creations before he stumbled into the world of cardmaking. Simon fell in love with cardmaking because each card is a small canvas and it doesn’t take long to create a finished piece of art to brighten somebody’s day. At the age of 10, Simon explored Alcohol Inks, Distress Inks, and Dylusions Sprays and discovered his passion for creating inky backgrounds. Although he started with ink, Simon quickly branched out into the world of stamping, embossing, and coloring.
Simon films crafting tutorials and posts them on YouTube to share his creativity and love for art with the world. “My first videos were not great… at all, but if I waited until they were perfect I wouldn’t have shared anything at all.” As Simon continues to create crafting tutorials he has gained a loyal following that he enjoys interacting with! He is also grateful for the amazing industry that has welcomed him with open arms and has continued to show him support on his creative journey.
