Technique-Tuesday-7-Days-Giveaways-SquareHi, Technique Tuesday fans!

Are we having fun yet?

We are shining the spotlight today on all of you who connect with us through Twitter!

More than 1,500 of you follow Technique Tuesday on Twitter, allowing us to bring you TT news and spottings of cool cards and scrapbook pages that use TT products. Twitter also makes it so you can easily alert us to projects you've made and shared online, and it allows you to quickly share your comments with us!

If you haven't checked Technique Tuesday out on Twitter yet, we'd like to invite you to do so. If you choose to follow us on Twitter, you'll receive our "Tweets" when we post them!

By the way, if you are already following us through Twitter, thank you for being part of our online community.

So, how about a giveaway?

While we sure think one giveaway sounds all good and dandy, we are thinking four giveaways sounds a lot better!

We've got four of our Tulips - Greenhouse Society stamp sets to give away. That means, there are going to be four winners (one stamp set per winner)!

Technique-Tuesday-Thanks-Card-Rounded-Card-Teri-Anderson-MediumWith the digital cut file, you can cut out the paper elements to make a card like this one with an electronic die-cutting machine.

Yes, indeed. We cut the base for the card, as well as the scalloped circle, flags and circle shapes, with the digital cut file!

(Wondering how we made our card all fancy like? Well, we simply embellished the card by stamping on some of the cut out elements with stamps from our Signed, Sealed and Delivered collection!)

And, by the way, don't despair if you don't have a digital die-cutting machine. We've also made a PDF template of the Rounded Flap Card, which you can use to cut the card out by hand with scissors or a craft knife. You can download that there as well!

Be sure to download this freebie soon! It will only be available during the Seven Days of Giveaway celebration!

Operation Write Home: Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop

0_MemDay2013BlogBanner

Technique Tuesday here, and we are thrilled to joining our friends at Operation Write Home for their Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop.

Operation Write Home is a non-profit organization that supports the U.S. Armed Forces by making blank greeting cards for the troops, which they can use to send notes to their loved ones. 

We admire the effort so four members of the Technique Tuesday team (Chris, Michelle, Bev and Teri) took some time out of the work day this week to some make cards for the cause! In a little over an hour, the four of them were able to make 14 (!!!!!) cards!

Go, team!

And here's a close-up peek at some of those cards.

Big Thanks, Dad!

Father's Day is right around the bend. June 16th, in fact.

And Laura O'Donnell has come up with a great way to tell Dad thanks: a handmade card.

TTbigthanks
Laura created the perfect sentiment for her card by mixing a glittered up star and stickers with a stamp from our Big Thanks stamp set.

Technique-Tuesday-Big-Thanks-Clear-Stamps-MediumWe think it's just great!

Giving "big thanks" for all the dads out there,
