I saw your question orginally. So I'll answer that since I read it.
I still use a ton of old classic techniques. Like circles and such, in fact I still use the old scalloped shaped scissors. When it comes to new techniques, if you are leary about commiting yourself to them because of the expense, what I would do is watch other peoples work and when you see something on their page and you find yourself wondering
"hey, how'd they do that?" Be sure to ask. Ask about the cost and so on. Then decide if it is something that you would use a lot of.
If it is, then for sure it is a good investment. For instance I didn't want to get into stamping because of the cost of the acrylic stamps and so on. But now I love it! I don't use embossing unless I am doing a card and want that raised affect. My collection of stamps is small, so the ones I did buy I made sure were ones that fit my style, like flourishes.
So when it comes to new styles and trying to decide whether to invest the money and add it to your collection, just do a little research, give yourself some time to think it over.
