Hello crafty friends and welcome to the very first Win & Tonic Challenge.
This first post is a little longer than it normally will be, but that’s because we have lots to tell you, so please bear with us xx.
We know that you love Tonic products as much as we do and the purpose of this monthly challenge is, we hope, to inspire you with lots of lovely ideas and maybe different ways to use your Tonic stash.
And there’s a fabulous prize up for grabs as well, courtesy of Tonic Studios (thank you xx).
Please don’t worry if you are a beginner because this challenge is open to absolutely everybody and our winners will always be chosen at random –
how could we possibly choose from the beautiful creations we know that you will make.
There aren’t too many rules but please be aware of the few we have – you can find them in the sidebar.
If in any doubt, please just ask us and we will be very happy to help you.
We have the most fabulous design team here to inspire you and there are some familiar names as you will see.
In time, we may well have guest designer spots as well, where we will invite one or more of you to join us for a few months.
So we are pleased to introduce our super talented girls and they are -
So that’s our team, and now for our theme!!
For our first outing, we thought we would have a nice and easy theme to get us all started, so this month it's
This means that you are free to make whatever you want, and as long as it contains something Tonic along the way, then you will be eligible for entry into the draw for the prize.
From next month, we will have a Take your Pick theme and there will hopefully be something there that appeals to everybody, but more of that in June.
We will also have more Anything Goes themes along the way as well.
Up for grabs this month is this fantastic prize which will be weaving its way to one lucky winner next month -
It’s a fabulous giveaway : )
So would you like some inspiration?
Well, feast your eyes on these fabulous makes -
So that’s our cards, and if you get a sec please do stop by and visit the team blogs - we love having visitors : )
And now it’s over to you, and all you have to do is to go and create something with your Tonic stash.
Once you've made your card or project, just leave a link using the blue Inlinkz button at the bottom of the post.
Our winners will be announced on 14th of the month, the day before we go live with the next challenge, and your entries must be in by 11pm on 13th of the month please.
If you’ve never entered a blog challenge before, it’s ever so easy to do.
I’ve added a page at the top of this blog called Entering The Challenge and there are details on there which explain how it works and what you need to do.
If you don’t have a blog but use Facebook or Instagram to post your crafty pics, then don’t worry because you can still enter.
Our technical guru Pamela has put together a video which shows you how you do this (it has no sound and is very easy to follow), and there is also a file there as well for you to read.
Hugest of thanks Pamela for doing this xx
So all that remains is for us to say a huge thank you to everybody who will take part, to our fab team for their gorgeous makes and to our sponsor, Tonic.
Have a fabulous month and we will see you here in June.
Crafty hugs, Ali & Dawny xx
