Tonic Craft Kit 15 | Unboxing & Inspiration

The new Tonic Craft Kit – Issue 15 ( USA | UK & International ) has been revealed and today I have a fun video for you! We are going to take a close-up look on what’s included and I will also share 4 projects using it.

The kit once again is packed with products and I strongly believe that it’s one of the best value for money kits out there. It’s called “Memento Book Maker” and it’s great if you are into album making.

But if you aren’t fear not, it’s very versatile and today I share 4 cards using products from the kit. And if you are a beginner in album making check the official website since they will be posting tutorials on this kind of projects too.

close-up photos

the shaped wedding card

For my wedding card I combined two of my favorite paper in the kit. I used the die that is meant to create your book/album covers to create a shaped card. I also used the corner dies and some ribbon to embellish my card. The sentiment is not included in the kit but you can use any stamp or die that you have in your stash. I used the Tonic Studios –  Best Wishes Die Set

the gilding flakes card

Here is a lovely fall card. I used the papers from the kit as well as the sentiment and the ink pad on this card. I also wanted to demonstrate a way to use the gilding flakes so I created my focal points using it. For this card I used leaf dies from the Tonic Craft kit 12. If you want to check the video tutorial on that kit HERE

I love the look of the flakes… it’s a completely different look that if you use foil sheets. I wish the photo could catch the real shine and color variation on these leaves!

the expanding mousse card

Here is a quick card I pulled together to demonstrate the use of the expanding mousse. Just apply it with a spatula over one of your stencils and heat set it. It will expand and bubble giving you a great texture, which is also perfect for mixed media projects.

I used the Tonic Studios Stencil – Sun-ray Scallop ( TNCUK ) and the Tonic Studios – Just to Say Die Set ( TNC ) for the sentiment.

the tabs card

And finally here is a card totally different of the style I normally do. It’s great to get outside of our comfort zone once in a while and I absolutely love the outcome. Here I used the 3 tab dies included in the kit to create many panels that I stack one on top of the other.

The tabs provide the perfect place to add sentiments, stamp them or use stickers like I did. All tha papers used are from the kit including this gorgeous embossed pink one with the hearts!

As my focal point I went with dimensional flowers from my stash. These are on sale at the moment and they are from the Prima Amber Moon Collection – Aspen( SBC ). You can always stamp a flower to cut and stick it on top or add any dimensional flower from your stash … or even create one yourself with dies. If you are a regular subscriber of the Tonic Craft kits you should have such dies from kit 5.

    I love the color brown but don’t use it often. This kit has plenty of brown!!! Love that color of ink. It’s a tempting kit and I’m thinking I might get it. A book idea is forming as a gift for a close friend’s upcoming birthday. Thanks for sharing some card making ideas using the kit — I needed to see that before making a decision. Also, I watched a video recently where someone complained (and in the comment section others had the same issue) that the Nuvo Mousse dried up really quickly. I had been considering trying some mousse but after seeing/reading that I tossed the idea out. After watching your video, however, the idea is back on the table!!! Thanks for sharing how to keep the product from drying out. I live in the desert Southwest (of USA) so it’s pretty dry here and I understand that products may dry out quicker than in other areas of the world — also a consideration. Thanks so much, Vicky!

      Debbie, I also live in the desert Southwest. I have found that the mousse doesn’t dry out (I’ve had mine for about 6 months) if I leave the foil attached in a small area of the top and be sure that I close the top tightly. I accidentally left the top off one of my jars overnight and it did dry out significantly, but I can still use it by putting a small amount on a craft mat and adding some water. I use a brush or my finger to apply it in this case. Happy crafting!

    Well, Vicky…this is my introduction to Tonic kits. I didn’t know about them, I didn’t know I wanted them, I didn’t know that I would have to have them! Those are ABSOLUTELY fabulous cards! Loved the video, but now, I fear a new addiction.

    Question about the dies: can they be used with chipboard??? How thick a material can be used with them to cut adequately? Thanks!!

      Thick cardstock is OK with thin dies but they don’t cut chipboard. If I wanted to create thicker I would cut cardstock and stick two or three together to get the chipboard effect.
