Creativation 2017 | Tim Holtz Distress® Recap


Happy Monday everyone! We had such a wonderful time this year at the 2017 Creativation Show by the Craft & Hobby Association in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona. It’s always such a fun experience getting to see familiar faces, as well as getting to meet some new people along the way! As always, a special shout out to everyone in the Ranger family for their hard work in both preparing and assisting at the show, it couldn’t happen without everyone’s help and dedication. This week on the blog we will be sharing with you some highlights and recaps of the show with fun photos and videos, including video demos from our Signature Designers! Today we will be featuring Tim Holtz Distress®, but be sure to check in everyday this week to see from all of our brands!

Education day started early with Distress Exploration, where Tim taught the latest techniques of using Distress products to create a finished vintage style clipboard. People were so excited to get their hands on the new Distress® Oxides and get a chance to play with them themselves!

Distress® Oxides were showcased in the Creativations New Product Innovations display.

The booth was sure to display all the Distress products, including the new products like Distress® Oxides, Distress® Crayons in new sets and new open stock colors, and Distress® Collage Medium in a 1 oz bottle. Samples from different artists using Distress® products were displayed along side the booth to inspire fellow crafters and spark some new ideas!

People were sure to crowd around Tim’s demo table to get a first-hand look at the new Oxides and all the ways to use them! Be sure to watch the videos below to learn some more out the Oxides!

Take a look at Tim’s final project for the Evolution of Distress designer challenge, where he used the new Distress® Oxides.

Everyone got their chance to play with the exciting new Distress® Oxides at the Make It Take It table

And people made sure to fill out color charts to bring home color samples for their stores too!
