February 2017–Take Your Pick


Good morning lovely crafty Tonic peeps and welcome to the next Win & Tonic challenge.

Thanks again to everybody who joined us last month – what gorgeous makes there were and it was lovely to see so many of you joining in : )

Lots of you have been using the new Win & Tonic facebook page –  you can find it here …


... and we hope that it helped anybody who has been struggling to upload their cards.
In case you missed it, if you leave your cards on that FB page,
we will pick them up from there and add them onto here for you so that you are allocated a number
to add you into the random draw (we don’t want it public so you will have to join the group).
It saves you emailing the cards over etc etc so it does seem to help.


OK so what’s on for this month?

Well this month we have another

Take Your Pick

challenge, and in case you aren’t familiar with this, it’s ever so easy and here’s how it works.

There’s a list of options and you can choose any of the options.
You can also combine some of the options if you want to so.
There’s a colour option, a technique option, a product option and a theme option.

And this month they are -

Colour - kraft plus anything

Technique -  bling it up, so just add glitters, glitter drops, anything sparkly

Product - free choice so any Tonic product is fine – yes, fill your boots my lovelies : )

Theme - happy anything ie birthday, anniversary or just be happy

So you may decide that you want to go with just one of the options  or you may decide that you want to combine some of the options like some of us have.

You don’t have to do all the options unless you want to of course, so the choice is yours - it is really simple and easy and very flexible.
Any questions please just yell – leave a comment below and we will get back to you.

Now of course, we have a prize up for grabs and this month it is a full set of the fabulous new Window Box Dies -


That is a prize and a half for sure and if you missed Ali’s tutorial on hpw to use these clever sets,  you can find it here

And of course, hugest of thanks to Tonic Studios for sponsoring us and for their continued support.


And if you want some ideas on how to use kraft card, did you catch Karen’s Tonic Live where she made a mug using kraft?
If not, you can see that one
here. I think these would be fabulous for Easter, filled with eggs or choccies.
And you could use the new alphabet dies to personalise them as well.


And if you want some inspiration, check out what our wonderful challenge team girlies have done – these are fabulous -
