Tonic Shape-Mates

The Tonic Shape-Mate system is a simple tool that can add a striking touch to your layouts!  This system is one I go to over and over, and I think you’ll do the same!

You Give Me A Happy Heart

For this project I used the wave rule pack, cutter, and glass mat.  After cutting my wave strips, I distressed the edges using the Tim HoltzPaper Distresser and black liquid chalk.

After putting my layout together, I used my sewing machine to stitch along the edges of my wave pieces, as well to create a stitched frame on the outer edge of the layout.  My favorite part of the layout…the journaling along the skinny wave piece.

Summer Days

Love the look of the wide rounded corner – from the smallest rectangle in the Shape-Mate Rectangles set – this layout will definitely be used again and again because it can so easily be used for another theme by simply switching out the patterns and stickers.
