Who Are Tonic Studios?

Tonic Studios specialise in creating innovating die cutting, stamping and scrap-booking products for the paper craft community. With a passion for design and manufacture, they have an extensive range of products which allow you to build a collection of top quality craft projects.
In the 15 years since Tonic Studios has been established the product design team has developed many products to provide additional user utility. Tonic's ever expanding range of dies has helped bring us to the forefront of paper crafting with some of the most detailed, versatile dies available on the market. Tonic has expanded its knowledge of crafting products over the last few years to create a new brand of products called Nuvo. These products in the brand consists of consumables to let the crafter add the finish, colour and sparkle to any craft project. This brand has now grown from a range of glitters to crystal drops, glitter drops, embellishment mousses, gliding flakes, glue pens, alcohol based pens, embossing powders etc.

With these two amazing brands in place, we say that Tonic is all about the cut and Nuvo is all about the finish.

How To Give Used Candle Jars A New Lease Of Life

Hello again everyone, I have a completely different post for you this time!


I keep buying all this ‘stuff’ and it’s so nice I can’t bring myself to use it … but it’s starting to get out of control and taking over my home!!
So I’m challenging myself on 2 levels – 1) use up my stuff; and 2) try something new.

Well I had some empty candle jars so I thought this would be a good way to use up some stuff and try something new at the same time and this is what I came up with.

I am over the moon with the results as it’s the first time I’ve tried anything like this.

What I used: ·Empty candle jar ·Decoart white gesso ·Starlight paints ·Decoart metallic paints ·Imagination Crafts rice papers ·Imagination Crafts fabric glue ·Twine ·Raffia ·Hessian ·Ribbon ·Paper flowers and embellishments from craft box

So here is what I did; Stamp script stamp using clear embossing pad to left side of card and cover with embossing powder; heat it to set.Cut a roug…
