Operation Write Home: World Card Making Day Blog Hop


Sending a big hello to all the Card Makers out there!

It's your day, World Card Making Day!

And all of us at Technique Tuesday are excited to show support for Operation Write Home! We are thrilled to be taking part in their World Card Making Day Blog Hop.

If you aren't familiar with Operation Write Home, it is a wonderful non-profit organization that mobilizes card makers to make handmade cards for soldiers. And they make sure to get those cards in the hands of real life soldiers, too! We are so inspired by the effort and are so happy to show support for it and to take part in today's hop.

We've got some members of the Technique Tuesday Creative Team here with some great cards.

In honor of World Card Making Day, we want to give you a discount for Enter coupon code CrazyForCards and you'll get 20% off your purchase. (Please note the code is not valid on Studio AE membership.) This code is good through midnight on Sunday.

We've also put some card making stamp sets, card kits and Technique Tiles on our Sale page in honor of the big day. Check that out, too.

Wishing you a wonderful World Card Making Day!


Stamp Spotlight: In Stitches

We are shining the spotlight today on one of our newest stamp sets: In Stitches.

The beauty of this stamp set is you can use it to give all of your cards, scrapbook pages and other paper crafted projects the look of being stitched on without ever firing up your sewing machine.

Not a believer? Well, check out these "oh sew cute" and clever projects our Creative Team has made with this set.

Hello December (in October)!

It is October 1st, and we are delighted to reveal October's Studio AE stamp set!

SAE Christmas Set
December Joys by Ali Edwards consists of 12 clear stamps on a 4" x 6" storage sheet.

This stamp set is a wonderful set for creating scrapbook pages and holiday cards with. It also works well for creating elements for December Daily albums, as well as other pocket page album projects like Project Life.

The stamp set starts shipping to Studio AE members on the 10th! Not a Studio AE member? You can order it for a limited time on our Web site or get it through your favorite retailer. Check with your favorite store to see if they carry Studio AE stamps or ask them to get them in.

Joining us as our Studio AE guest for October is talented scrapbooker and paper crafter Mendi Yoshikawa.

"My name is Mendi Yoshikawa and I am a stay-at-home Mom to two girls here in beautiful Vancouver, Washington.  I am married to the sweetest husband who gives me lots of time to play and looks the other way when it comes to my paper crafts spending.  I have been obsessed with this wonderful "hobby" for 12 years now and am super excited to have this opportunity to design with some of my favorite stamps and designers this month!"

Mendi blogs at Snippets by Mendi.

She'll be joining us this month for our Studio AE Blog Hop and sharing a few additional projects with this month's Studio AE stamp set.

Head to her blog today to see the first one! Here's a peek of what you will see!
