I must apologise first up for the 'simple' tutorial this month (will be up first thing Jan 1st).

Because the idea to do this blog came about quite quickly we didn't give our self much of a lead in time to start with Jan 1st as our grand opening... and while the techniques will become more interesting and involved over the year.. we have ended up starting with an old favourite of mine which I hope you will still enjoy and find interesting...this will make the backgrounds for 4 ATCs that you can finish to your liking.

Each month on the 1st we will publish a step by step tutorial - your challenge is to do the technique... upload an image to your blog and link back to us here. Leave a comment in the comments section so we can go look at what you made.
As an opening special we have a prize of a Crafter Companion Enveloper Pro.
The Enveloper pro has the capability to make nine different shape and size envelopes and comes with its own double ended scoring and embossing tool and a full colour four page booklet detailing how to make the various size envelopes and tricks of the trade such as achieving a professional finish by lining the envelopes and is valued at $34.95AU.

On the 1st of Feb we will put all the names of those who have left a comment linking to their blog into a hat and draw the winner!
