Technique Junkie's Birthday Month Blog Hop

Did you arrive here  by hopping from
Jane's Blog with her amazing project to my Craftchaos?
Yes, then you are in the right spot to
celebrate with us the 10 year anniversary

Te AWESOME Pat Huntoon started a newsletter with
technique tutorials online 10 years ago
and is celebrating this with a whole month
of give-aways on her blog.
But today Pat and her design team have
a special blog hop and wonderful prize:

if you leave a comment on every blog,
you can become a guest designer
for the next Technique Junkie Newsletter!!!

Now on to some of the wonderful techniques
you can find in the newsletters.

 One of my all time favourite techniques
and I found this spooky free template
The irisfolding technique was in the
first newsletter in October 2002.
And the background is stamped
in a scenic technique from
newsletter August 2009.
 The stamps and dies I have used for this
card are Michael Strong's Halloween stamps
and dies. The sentiment is by Stampin'Up!
I am a Junkie for a long time and I love trying
out all the new techniques and sometimes
even think of one myself. Hope you enjoy
the hope. Don't forget to leave a comment
to win a guest designer's spot.
And now........
hop on to
with her fantastic art work!
 Have a creative day!
