We have some news at Technique Tuesday.
First, the company’s Studio AE™ program is becoming Memory Keepers Studio™. During the last year the company has received a number of suggestions from Studio AE members and we have decided that it is a good time to implement many of those ideas. Like Studio AE, the new Memory Keepers Studio program will feature a monthly stamp set created with traditional scrapbookers and pocket page memory keepers in mind. Crafters who become members in the Memory Keepers Studio auto-ship program will enjoy a 25% off the Memory Keepers Studio stamp set, additional discounts on selected products each month, the convenience of an auto-ship program, and products designed by a number of artists and in a wider variety of themes and styles. Non-members will be able to purchase the Memory Keepers Studio stamp sets by checking the company’s website on the first of each month or asking for them at their favorite retailer.
The first Memory Keepers Studio stamp set is Family Flair. It will start shipping on July 10th. You can see our August and September Memory Keepers Studio stamp sets here.
Second, Technique Tuesday has seen significant customer interest in die cutting products. Technique Tuesday has launched a new program called Fresh Cut Studio™. The Fresh Cut Studio program will feature steel dies that are released each month. The Fresh Cut Studio dies are designed to let crafters make accents for pocket page layouts, traditional scrapbook pages, and cards. In addition to working stand-alone, the Fresh Cut Studio dies are also designed to match and complement the Memory Keepers Studio stamp sets. Like the Memory Keepers Studio program, customers may choose to become members of the Fresh Cut Studio auto-ship program or can purchase the new steel dies individually.
We'd like to introduce you to Flair Maker, our first Fresh Cut Studio dies. You can see August and September's dies here.
Finally, as the company has been working on these new programs, Technique Tuesday CEO, Bev Grey, and Ali Edwards, have decided that it is time to move in new and different directions.
“During the last 6 years of collaborating with Ali, we have designed and manufactured many stamp sets and journaling products based on Ali’s digital artwork. With so many wonderful designs already in the hands of papercrafters, both Ali and I agree that it is time to change things up and move in separate directions,” says Bev. “Although Technique Tuesday will not be releasing new products with Ali, I value the relationship we’ve built with Ali and wish her the best in her new endeavors. I am so excited about the new Memory Keepers Studio and Fresh Cut Studio programs. I am also looking forward to sharing our summer product release with you in late July!”
“I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Technique Tuesday over the last 6 years,” says Ali. “Their attention to detail and quality is something I appreciate and I wish them nothing but the best. I'm looking forward to the next evolution of the Ali Edwards brand and will release details in the coming months via aliedwards.com.”
