Again we will have two more items to give away to celebrate the Technique Junkie Newsletter's 5th anniversary!
Happiest of anniversaries, Junkies! Five years, 400 techniques. By far, the MOST extensive one-source library of step-by-step tutorials that exists anywhere. If you are a visitor and you have not subscribed, what are you waiting for? Let me give you a little incentive: New subscribers, if you subscribe to the issues from 10-07 through 12-08, I will send you the 10-07 issue Free. Free. That is a $3.00 savings! So, $21.00 for the issues from 10-07 through 12-08. Hurry, though, I am only offering this until Friday, November 2nd! There will NOT be any extensions on this deadline. US addresses only. Email me for an invoice if you are interested.
Subscribers, why don't you tell us in your comments why you love being a Technique Junkie? If each of you tells one other person today about the newsletter (and the special), that would be the best anniversary present you can give me.
Okay, thank you for allowing me to put a "commercial" up -- I figure with all these give aways, I am allowed a commercial : ) On with the give aways for today!
Our first give away is from one of the most generous sponsors of this Month's anniversary celebration -- I Brake for Stamps. I don't know about you, but this company has become one of my favorites! One lucky winner of the Give Aways will receive these two stamp sheets, and the card shown here. I Brake for Stamps has donated more than their share of Give Aways for us -- why don't you go over to Della's website and show your appreciation?
The eye-candy that goes with this Give Away uses I Brake for Stamps with the Scrunchie Technique from the October 2007 issue of the Newsletter. I stamped directly on the background and colored the image with markers, then removed some of the color with a blender pen. I like the effect- very "copic-esque."
Our next Give Away is another fabulous gift certificate from our friend Elaine at Integrity Designs. The lucky winner of this part of the Give Away will receive a $25.00 (Canadian) gift certificate to go shopping on the Integrity Designs website! With the favorable exchange rate, that is one great Give Away! Integrity Designs carries many of my favorite Stamp lines -- Innovative Stamp Creations, Time to Stamp, Non-Sequitur Stamps, Starving Artistamps, and many many more. Thank you, Elaine, for this generous Give Away! Have fun shopping, ladies.
The eye candy that goes along with this card was made using Time to Stamp images from the Beach Memoirs sheet. The background is the Watered Tintz technique from the December 2006 issue of the TJ Newsletter. The shells were colored with pastels and then covered with diamond glaze (CE) to add dimension. This card will be sent to the gift certificate winner.
Remember, there will be two winners chosen from the entries - one for each prize. Good luck! ANYONE can enter. One entry per person, per daily give away please. To enter the give away for today, simply leave a comment on this blog entry telling me that you would like to enter by 11:59pm EST on Tuesday, October 30th. No other entry methods will be included in the give away. If you email me to enter, your entry will NOT be considered a valid entry. When you leave the comment, make sure to put your NAME in the comment -- if you enter your comment as "Anonymous", I cannot give you the prize! Blogger does NOT record your email address for me, so you will need to check back to find out if you have won or include your email address in your comment so that I can notify you. I will have a random number generator pick two numbers from the comments to select two winners. Each give-away is separate, so to be eligible for a specific item you must enter that day's contest on the post where it is listed.Check back every day during the month of October for the daily giveaway -- you can enter EVERY day! A fabulous Grand Prize will be offered on the last day of the month, too. Enter today -- good luck!
Today's winners are: Kat Merryman, who has won the I brake for Stamps Sheets, and Debbie Ebat, who has won the Gift Certificate from Integrity Designs. Congratulations, ladies!
