Tonic is adding nine new punches to the Simplicity Border Punches collection. Below is a peek at three of them (be sure to stop back on Saturday & Sunday to see the other six)!  Leave a comment and let us know what you think – I’ll be sending a set of the three featured punches to one lucky reader!  And, you can visit Amy & Jackie’s blogs for more chances to win.

Here we go…

Simplicity Border Punch – Doily Strip 

I adore how this border strip can be used to create banners & flags, just by snipping off the ends!

Another new release… Jason, Josie and I welcomed our new baby boy last week – he joined us a little early, but we’re cherishing every minute with him!

Simplicity Border Punch – Scalloped Arc Border

I’m in love with this punch!  Definitely hop over to Jackie’s blog to see how she used this one (she put together a great step-by-step tutorial for us)  – can’t wait to try it myself!

Simplicity Border Punch – Floral Border 2

To win, you need to post your comment by midnight, Friday July 6th – the winner will be announced Monday, July9th (limited to US addresses only).

Don’t forget to jump over to Jackie & Amy’s blogs – here is a peek at their projects, but you’ll want to stop by to see how they created them.  And, they’re each giving away the three punches we featured today too!
