Tonic Studios Designer's Choice Dies - January 2020 - Just For You Tri-fold

Happy Friday everyone & I'm here today to share the new release of Designer's Choice Dies from Tonic Studios for January 2020.

This is the fourth release from the Designer Dies series and is called "Just For You Tri-fold" - 25 piece die set.

                                           Tonic Studios US
  • only available through Tonic Studio stores
  • limited edition run, never to be repeated
  • online & downloadable resources

Click on the video below to see how I created all my projects using "Just For You Trifold" die set.


Using the die set, I have cut out my panels in both Craft Perfect kraft & Ballet Pink card. I will alternate the layers to create 2 cards at the same time. I have added the back panel to an Craft Perfect A6 white card blank cutting away any excess.

A few extra flowers and Nuvo drops were added as finishing touches. In the video, you will also see that the card still stands up as a tri-fold.


Firstly apologies for the photos. It didn't matter how near a window, or lights I used, my photos are not brilliant - so sorry. Aaron back tonight and will give it to him to photograph, so watch this space.

Die cut the main panel from Craft perfect foiled kraft card. Using the outer edges from one of the sentiments, create a window at the bottom of the card.

Add acetate to the inside of the panel followed by 3D foam. Using Nuvo confetti, glitter & sequins, add to window areas. Place on to front of A6 card blank.


Over on my YouTube channel, I am giving away this month Designer Dies Collection - Just For You Tri-fold. All you need to do is subscribe to my YouTube channel & comment on the video. The giveaway is open worldwide & will close on Friday 31st January 2020. The dies will be sent on card for postal reasons.

Many thanks for popping by & I hope you enjoyed ideas.

Have a great weekend everyone,

NEW Jam Jar & Centrepiece Sentiments from Tonic Studios

Busy day here and not sure if coming or going. It's a day where lots has been achieved but at the same time, you constantly question yourself as to if anything has been ticked off ...

Now one of the things I have definitely ticked off, is to share some of my projects which will be launching on Create & Craft TV. Carley Duff will be launching the NEW Jam Jar dies & stamps collection, plus the NEW Centre Piece Sentiment die sets. Two completely different launches ... !

On my blog today, I am sharing a project from each of the new launches & have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Both  launches really allow your crafty creativity to flow.
