Technique Junkie Newsletter 10th Birthday Anniversary Blog Hop and Embossing Oversized Cardstock

To see how I embossed the 5″ x 5″ background, scroll down for a demonstration.

Well, here we are at the 10th anniversary of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  To help celebrate, we are having a blog hop with the winning prize being a guest designer for one of the upcoming newsletter issues.  How cool is that?!  Along the way you will find work from the Design Team using techniques over the course of the 10 year newsletter.  My card uses the Stacked Nesties technique from the October 2011 issue.

Didn’t you find Jackie’s work awesome?  It’s always a delight to see what others decide to make.  You might want to start at the beginning of our blog hop by visiting the design team blog called Design Junkies.

Not a subscriber to the newsletter?  Here’s some great reasons to get a subscription:

  • Every other month a paper issue is mailed to you
  • The 8-page Newsletter is printed on high gloss paper which makes for high quality photos.  The October issue has 29 photos of cards
  • Every issue describes the step-by-step process for each technique and has an example of a card using that technique
  • Subscribers have access to an on-line website with step-by-step photos for each technique
  • Be the first to see newly developed techniques
  • Have resources right at your finger tips.  I keep all of my paper issues in a three ring binder
  • As I am a design team member, you will see my work on a monthly basis, both in the paper and on the website
  • You can join the Technique Junkie Newsletter Yahoo Group where you can share your work with the Group
  • The TJ Newsletter has generous sponsors who offer discounts to TJ members
  • Get your subscription by visiting the Technique Junkie Newsletter

The next stop on your hop is Ann Clack’s blog.  She has something pretty cool for you.

Place cardstock into embossing folder and run through embossing machine.

Place cardstock into embossing folder being careful to line up the dots appropriately.

Holding the paper backwards, in one hand, gently push out the flattened hole.  A gentle push will push out the dots.
