Nuvo Stone Drops - Beginner Techniques Part One

Hello and good afternoon! Today I'd like to share my first post using the Tonic Studios Nuvo Stone Drops. Stone Drops can be used in the exact same way as your other Nuvo Drops. The tip is larger so your drops will be a little bigger but this allows the gritty texture to flow freely. You can also use them to create beautiful backgrounds and mixed media projects.

Mixed Media with Tonic Studios Die Embossing Folders

Hello and good afternoon my crafty friends. 
Today I'm featured on the Global Tonic Blog as a Guest Designer! ’m currently part of Tonic Studios UK Design Team and It’s a privilege to work with such talented ladies, creating samples and prep for television, shows, and social media. I’ve been crafting for three years and still feel like I’m a total noob at times but will stick my fingers in and have a go with almost anything.
I live is a small Cornish Hamlet in the UK but I’m originally from California (just think 80’s hair, neon everything and braces to finish off the cool teenage look!).

Nuvo Mica Mists Easy Background Technique

Hi everyone! It's fantastic being back at full steam after breaking my tailbone in January. I was out of action for a long time and had a few false starts with crafting over this past month but I'm definitely back at it now. I'm so thankful for all my friends who kept me in their thought and who didn't abandon me during my period away.

Birch Press Triangle Fade Die

Hello and good morning! I'm delighted to be back on the blog today after a short break away. Todays cards are a thank you to Katrina and the girls at Bumblelerry Papercrafts, who patiently waited for me to recover from an injury. I'm also thanking my homies at Tonic for also being patient and allowing me the time I needed to rest. I've been tinkering with the Birch Press Triangle Fade Die and three different Altenew sentiments to make a few gorgeously simple cards this week.

A Merry Little Christmas Watercolour Card

Hola mis amigos! Christmas has officially started in casa de Kray and this means lots of cards! One small point before I start is that I've finally replaced my stamping  platform. I am completely baffled as to where it can be but I couldn't get anything done without one and so Tonic came to my rescue. That said, I'd love to share with you my very first Christmas card design for 2018! Now, I'll have variations to this as the stamp set is sooooo adorable!

Mixed Media Kaleidoscope Box

Hola! Some days I just really love crafting and the few days it took me to make this really made me appreciate just what you can do with a bit of paper. I made up a Kaleidoscope Box using the Media dies from Tonic Studios and I love it so much. It turned into quite an epic project but was worth every minute.
