The Ton 2016 Anniversary Release: Day 1 (+ Giveaways!)

Good morning! I know I have been quiet on my blog since my post on New Year’s Day, but The Ton is celebrating its first birthday this month so I have plenty of inspiration for you this week! Can you believe it’s been a year since The Ton has been around and a year since I’ve been on their Design Team?! What a year it’s been for me. 🙂 We have lots worth celebrating, and I hope you’ll join me this week as we reveal some great stamps and dies to you.


For our Anniversary Release, we have 17 new stamps (clear sets and cling background stamps) and 2 new dies (one fabulous coverplate die and a word die). For today’s post, The Ton is featuring three stamps and one die: Fresh Cut Roses, Timeless Icons, Morning Glory Garden Background, and Fabulous Word Die. All products will be available for order on Thursday, January 14 at 7 am EST.

Here are the blogs participating today. Be sure to visit each one!
