  41. Thanks for teaching us great techniques (and for the chance to win). Ranger week has left me inspired to try new things on my scrapbook pages and cards and expand past my comfort zone.

  42. I’m sad to see the week end! I have been wanting to try the Ranger products, and I’ve watched many videos, but I must say Andrea’s information was very concise, and I hope you will consider doing more in the future! Thanks so much!

  43. I’ve enjoyed all the videos and can’t wait to get started using all the Ranger products. Congratulations to all the winners.

  44. Thank you so much for the Ranger technique tutorials. It’s been a great week and I hope there will be many more like it. You even got me more interested in buying more of the Distress Stains.
    Congratulations to the winners too! Wish I was one but since I’m not, it couldn’t happen to a better group of ladies.

  45. Loved, loved, loved this week – TH is my favorite designer in the scrap world, and his products are fantastic. I will let Ranger know how much I appreciate them sponsoring the giveaways.

  46. I don’t often jump on board with a new line of products but you have made these Ranger Distress Stains irresistible. Thank you so much for the fabulous videos on all the cool techniques you have shared.

  47. Thank you for some wonderful videos and a very fun week of techniques! Love the Ranger stains! and will add them to my wish list. Thanks for sharing all the info.

  48. Congratulations to all the winners. Such a great week of videos on Distress Stains. Even though I’ve used them before and watched other videos, I still found more to learn. Thanks for great ideas, too.

  49. congratulations all the winners. Thanks again for all the new ways to use the rangers distress stains. You are only limited by your imagination.

  50. I enjoyed all the videos and even learned a few new things. thanks for hosting this.

  51. Thanks for the awesome tutorials this week…I had to rush out and buy a couple of Distress Stains already, but I would love the full set!

  52. I just loved the tutorials this week. Great to focus on such a great product! Congrats to the winners!

  53. I just today found your website and videos (well, last night) and have spent the past 6 hours watching and catching up…especially all of the videos from Ranger Week. I was so bummed out that I didn’t get a chance to win, so imagine how unbelievably glad I am right now. Ranger Products are the basic staples of my crafting life! I absolutely adore everything they produce, and literally consume anything I can find about new ways to use their products…and Distress Stains…what can I say…heaven!! Thanks so much…I hope that there will be similar videos and special weeks to come. So glad I found you!

  54. This has been a fabulous week with the collaboration between Ranger and Paper Crafter’s Library. The videos have been so informative and easy to follow. I am looking forward to trying out all these techniques that you have shown.
    I am honoured to have been chosen as a winner and wish to thank both Ranger and Paper Crafter’s Library. I have now added Ranger to my reading list, (Paper Crafter’s has been on my list for quite a while now).

  55. I loved Ranger Week. I think I learned more in one week than I have over the last couple of years just trying to figure it all out on my own. I believe alot of people buy the products because we love Ranger and we love Tim, but really don’t have a clue how to adapt the product to our “style” of crafting. These videos showed such detailed techiniques and how to do them, that I for one, am able to adapt these techniques to my style of crafting and scrapbooking and card making. So a great big “Thank You” for all the videos. I can only hope that Ranger will allow Paper Crafters Library to continue doing this with all their products. Not just for those of us that have already purchased the products but for those that want to purchase them, but just weren’t sure of how to use them!!! Ranger Rocks and so does Paper Crafters Library!!!


  57. Ranger week was great I enjoyed all the videos, and learned all I ever wanted to know about Distress Stains. Congrats to all the winners.

  58. I loved the video tutorials. The information was very clear and easy to understand. Great to see the techniques happening. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for this chance to win distress stains! Also i found my way here and took the fanbadge for my own blog. And I signed up for the newsletter! Great info to be found here!

  59. A tremendous job with the videos as always Andrea. I have to call this week a REAL teaser into the world of Distress Stains! How do you NOT want all the colors – LOL! Ranger is an amazing company and picked a winner with Tim Holtz.
    Thank you for mentioning or linking the tools you used. In Sophie’s last card with the light bulb is that a stamp? All the projects were gorgeous. One of my most favourite techniques has to be the Blended Distress Stains and the Ghosting with the stamps and embossing folders.
    Congratulations to all the winners of the Distress Stains so far. It was nice for us late comers to have another shot too! It was very generous of Ranger to donate all the sets.

  60. I have seen the Ranger Distress Stains when shopping and was afraid to buy them not knowing what to do with them. After watching these videos you can bet they will be high on my priority list next time I shop. The videos were great instruction. Thanks so much.

  61. Ranger Week was fantabulous … Fabulous and fantastic rolled into one! The videos and projects shown were extremely helpful. Keep up the good work!

  62. Ranger Week was great! I’ve had some of these inks for over a year now and haven’t known how to use them. The techniques shown during this past week have inspired me to try using the inks and to try the new techniques. Thanks so much…..I love the videos and all your great creative ideas!!!

  63. As I am a begginer in this world, and learning all about it in the internet, Ranger Week has given me a big view of endless possibility of backgrounds creation! Thanks!!!

  64. This week has been so fun. I learned so much thank you! I bought my first three bottles yesterday and am excitted to try sofme of your techniques. Thanks again!

  70. I love the Ranger products. I never knew one could do so much with the Distress Stains. It teaches me how to use different products.

  72. I totally enjoy the Ranger week tutorials and the information that has been delivered and given. All the videos presented is really clear and that makes me understand the convenience of using them. I never thought how versatile these fluid distress stains are and to incorporate them in a project is simply “wow’! I am so glad that Tim Holtz come up with this formulation and that just makes paper crafting/scrapbooking a whole lot of fun to work on. Thank you! Thank you! Such a genius.

  73. Oh My! Please do another Ranger week! This was awesome! And a second chance to win—–can’t beat that! Thanks Andrea!

  74. LOVED this Ranger week! Would love to see this format on other Ranger products. Congrats to you both!!!

  75. Ranger week was a wonderful idea. I have learned many wonderful tecniques. I don’t have stains yet. But after this week I truly need some. Most of all i liked background tecniques. Thank you for such an amazing week of good ideas!

  76. Thank you so much for all of the instruction and ideas. I am fairly new to the whole stamping world.
    I do a lot with photography but recently took an on-line course, Chemistry 101 with Tim Holtz. Now I am
    hooked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe all that you can do with ink. I got a lot from the class but this week I have
    been able to get more focused on the stains and inks. I am trying to control myself but I want to go buy every color!!! I am disabled so this has opened up a whole new world for me. Thank you very much and
    I look forward to more tutorials.

  77. Thank you so much for doing this! I have always been hesitant to purchase these because I wasn’t sure what to do with them. I will definitely give them a try now!!!!!

  78. OMGosh! These videos are awesome! I never knew you could do so much with the distress stains. Definitely something I need!! Picket Fence looks like so much fun to work with!

  79. I had just the busiest week – but saved the Ranger post to review at leisure. I loved the videos, and ended up ordering about $70 of the supplies due to the videos. Just love the Picket Fence! I was slightly disappointed that I waited too late to view and five possible chances at a lovely stain set. But was really happy to look at the blog this evening and find out I have at least one chance! Thanks for the wonderful visual training!

  80. OMG…so many ideas; loved them all. I would not be offended if you had more ideas. I purchased several of the colors to try BUT would love to win more. Thanx for sharing!!

  81. Great week of ideas! Fabulous cards and videos! Can’t wait to order some of the stains so I can try these out myself!

  82. I thought Ranger week was Awesome. I am so impressed with what you can do with the distressed stains. I guess if I can’t win them I will have to be purchasing them sometime in the future. Loved all the techniques that were created with the distressed inks. Looking forward to trying them out myself. Would be nice if I could win then I would not have to wait to so long to start my collection of distressed inks. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  83. I have enjoyed all the tips given on the usage of distressed stains. I am excited about all the new and exciting, and different products that have been introduced, and the opportunity for all of us to get a chance at trying. I am always looking for new and exciting techniques for my scrapbooks and cards. I would love to win a set of these Ranger products. Thanks for the extra chance to try and do that. πŸ™‚

  84. Congratulations to all the winners!!!! The samples and tutorials were great. I love Tim Holtz and Ranger products; they are so innovative and exciting to use.
