CD 11 Blog Hop for Technique Junkie Newsletter - by Judy Jackson

Good morning from Judy Jackson! Don't you just love Blog Hops?   Isn't exciting whenever Pat Huntoon announces anew CD for the Technique Junkie Newsletter? And it is doubly good when you can combine a Blog Hop and a new CD!  Yahoo, CD 11 is exciting!  And the CD 11 Blog Hop starts HERE!

The TJ Design Team is here with a Blog Hop to roll out the Technique Junkies CD-11, a compilation CD of all of the tutorials from the October 2012 through August 2013 issues.  We are so excited to have you join us.
The CD includes 10 bonus techniques that are only found on the CD. All of the tutorials are in PDF format, so they print perfectly on regular paper, for both PCs and Macs. With the bonus tutorials, there are 100 tutorials on this CD!
It is available for order TODAY by clicking here ( The CD will be shipped in less than 2 weeks!
New on this CD
This CD contains a pictorial index that you can print out -- each of the 100 tutorials on the CD are represented with pictures in the index. It has been designed to make it easier than ever to find a tutorial on the CD.  and here is the Table of Contents for the CD:
I have two techniques to show you today from the Bonus Techniques on this CD.  The first technique is Stained Alcohol.

Same technique, different colors, very different results for a unique background! The top card features  stamps from Markie's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company. The bottom card features a stamp from Stampabilities.
My second technique to show you is Lumiere Spread.

The focal image and other stamps are from Stampin' Up and the greeting is from Markie's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company. The words perfectly fit the peaceful scene! I love this new sentiment from this company! 
Both of the above techniques are Bonus techniques not previously published anywhere in a Technique Junkie newsletter.

Now for the Blog Hop -- you do not want to miss any blogs form the Design Team. If you get "lost" you can always come back  here and start over! The participants for the hop are:

Judy Jackson

I love hopping though Blog Hops - you can nearly find a few ideas! Pat Huntoon and the Technique Junkie Design Team hope you enjoy our Blog Hop today.  The compilation CD's with Bonus Techniques are another way to inspire you and get you creating!
Have a wonderful day and be creative.
Judy Jackson


Distressed Rainbow Strips

Morning junkies, Tricia here with this week's Try That Technique from this month's newsletter called Distressed Rainbow Strips.

This is such a fun and easy technique.  I used the same distress inks that I used for my background to color my image (Gina K Designs).  The background stamp is from Impression Obsession and the sentiment is from Mark's Finest Paper.

I made this card for my aunt who loves crafts of all kinds.  I knew it would be perfect for her.

I hope you have time to play along with us this week.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.  The possibilities are endless.

Have a crafty day!
