MDS Monday


so its monday again (a little late on monday but its still monday)

My days are a little turned around this week as Im not at work so I will get some much needed craft time hence me posting later

So its time for some MDS Magic

Once you have purchased this magnificent tool you will notice that not only can you create your own projects from scratch but for novices like me they give you some pre designed projects that you can add to

I have taken one of these pre designed templates today and simply added a photo
(thats how easy it can be)

This is the first time I've been able to scrap this picture of me and my brother who very suddenly and sadly was taken from us late last year so its still very raw and emotional to look at pictures of him.  This is one of the only 'adult' pictures of us together so it means so much to me

I haven't added anything to the template apart from the photo
so you can see how gorgeous your projects can be without much work

We are still waiting for a release date on MDS so I will keep teasing you with MDS Mondays as it will help me develop from a novice to an amateur (fingers crossed)

Pop back next week for some more MDS samples

Magnetic Platform

Announcement made by Stampin Up:


Due to an unfortunate backorder situation, the Big Shot Magnetic Platform (item 130658) is unavailable until further notice. While we’re thrilled to be offering a product that you and your customers clearly like, we regret not being able to anticipate just how much you would like it. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Here are answers to some of the questions you might have:

Why are you doing this? 
We went through what we thought would be a 13-week supply of the Magnetic Platform in just a few weeks, and rather than continuing the backorder situation for you, we believe it’s best to make it unavailable for purchase until we can replenish our inventory. Our supplier is working at capacity to meet our demand, and we will continue working closely with them to get the situation addressed as quickly as possible.

When will the Magnetic Platform be available?
We expect that it will be available early autumn.

What if I already ordered it when it was on backorder?We’ll fill all closed backorders as we get more Magnetic Platforms in. We are receiving periodic shipments from our vendor and as soon as they come in we’ll fulfil orders in the approximate order they were received.

Teachers Gifts

Well my kids finished school last week and are nearly 1 week into the mammoth summer holidays
Im sure they never lasted this long when I was at school??

My son is moving into Y2 when he returns in September 
which means he leaves the teacher he has had for the last 2 years

This is quite sad as she has done a fantastic job helping him become the young man he is turning into

I wanted to give her something she could keep

so after browsing through google and Pintrest
(my 2 favorite places for inspiration)
I decided on these 2 gifts

I even got him to write he a little latter and attached it with a photo of him to the back

She got very chocked up and said she would be placing them on her desk/wall

I know they aren't Stampin up products but I thought you might like to see them

Thanks for popping by

Anne Claire Finch

I just wanted to let you know about the stamper group I joined not so long ago and is run by Jaime.I wasn't so sure at first to commit as you have to spend at least £15 a month....Well I didn't need to worry as it's a great way of getting a fabulous range of unique products (not available in the shop) for your craft needs;not just card making as buttons,ribbons,cooking accessories are even sold in the catalogue.You are always the first to know about new offers,you can swap items with your fellow members if you wish.  You get a FREE Stampin Up catalogue and Jaime is always available to help with any queries we might have. Personally my problem now is to resist to the temptation to buy everything out of the catalogue!:)
