Welcome to day two of my October Afternoon Woodland Park feature!

“Navy Pier” — Featuring the Tonic DuoPunch Ticket/Tag & Craft Pick

I loved tying the “ticket” theme into the layout using the Ticket/Tag punch – I used the Craft Pick to poke holes in the center of the circle area created by the ticket punch, and added a decorative brad.

Summer might be winding down, but the Woodland Park collection from October Afternoon will have you reminiscing about blue skies, days in the park, and cute little critters!  Join me all week as I share a series of cards and layouts — featuring a number of Tonic tools as well as this delightful collection!

Woodland Park Feature – Day One

I loved the versatility of this collection!  At first glance, it seemed a little girly, but it really lent itself perfectly to some fun baby boy projects — as you’ll see in the layout and card below.

October Afternoon – Woodland Park Collection – “cat tail pond” paper, “bunny tail trail” paper, “magpie field” paper, “willow path” paper, “minnow creek” paper, “birch hallow” paper, “old mill bridge” paper, word stickers (love), label stickers, flower sack, buttons, designer brads, alpha stickers and wrap pack.

Other – kraft cardstock, cream cardstock, turquoise thread, sewing machine


“Welcome little one!” — featuring the Tonic Simplicity Pattern Star Border Punch & Simplicity Pattern Scallop Diamond Punch

The card height is trimmed by 1″ so the border punch could extend past the fold.  The two banner pieces were created by snipping triangles off the tips with the Scallop Diamond Border punch.

Ribblets punch #902 – (5/8″ ribbon – 1/8″ hole) –  easy to adorn with brads, eyelets or rhinestones!

Tip #1 – Weave two sections of ribbon starting from each edge so you can tie a bow where they meet.

Tip #2 – When using eyelets or brads, it’s easier to add them before the ribbon.  For rhinestones, you’ll want to add them after you’ve woven the ribbon through your project. 

Ribblets punch #903 – (3/8″ ribbon – 1/8″ hole) – quickly adorn gift boxes with a little more than just ribbon!

Ribblets punch #900 – (3/8″ curved slits – 1/8″ hole) – punch at 3/4″ increments and tie ribbons in small knots through the holes rather than adding eyelets or brads.
