As the summer winds down and we
approach the fall months, I thought it
would be fun to include some final  
flower-oriented techniques in this issue.
The Popped Blooms and the Big Shot
hammer are our last homage to blossoms
this year. We have also included some
easy techniques to help you through
the dog days of August, too.

I am thrilled to announce that the
Jackie Kalchert has agreed to
join the Technique Junkie Design Team
as a permanent member.  Jackie is a
long-time Junkie and has always shared
her work on the TJ group -- I am thrilled
to have her on our team. Welcome

As always, many people have offered
their talents for this issue. Please take a
moment to look at the credits below
the tutorial listings and express your
appreciation for them too!
You can also start to pre-order CD9
today -- it will be released in early
September this year. It has 100
tutorials -- all of the tutorials from
October 2010 through the ones in
this issue -- plus 10 bonus
techniques. All of the tutorials are in
pdf format so you can print them
easily.  Order your CD today! You can
order and renew using THIS link.

The Fancy Folds and Motion, The
Emboss or Die CD, and the
Stampbooking CDs continue to be
available in case you would like to
order those also.

Finally, I hope you can stay cool and
find some time to craft. Enjoy the
rest of your summer!
Happy Stamping!
