A big welcome to Amy and Jackie who will be contributing ideas and projects to our Tonic blog!

A quick introduction…

Jackie – North Carolina | I am originally from St. Augustine, Florida. My husband and I moved to NC in 2004. My children are in North Carolina and Colorado, out on their own, so we have four sweet kitties to keep us company – when it suits them, of course. I love to stamp (and collect stamping stuff!) so I work part time at my LSS to support my addiction.

You’ll find a number of great designs from Jackie at “Just Stamp It!” — and she’ll be sharing some Mother’s Day projects featuring Tonic punches with us here soon!


Amy – Wisconsin | My professional background is quite “left brain” type work since I work for a local school district as a Registrar. For the last year I have been “mom” to my crazy Olde English Bulldog, Otis. I have been married to my husband/best friend for just about 4 years. My passion in life is anything that is creative. I have always had this creative drive, whether it was for art class: painting and drawing, to painting furniture in funky colors to match my decor, to scrapbooking, card making, and any other altered art projects. This girl is not afraid to dive into whatever creative outlet that is available. I think my hobbies help balance me since my day job is so the other way. Our travels, our families, and our dog are the main sources of inspiration for my work and are the primary subjects of my layouts. I look forward to helping you see all that Tonic tools can do for you.
