MDS, Retired Products Lists

Retiring Stamps & Accessory List

Dear Crafters,


You will be very happy to know that the Retiring Stamps & Accessory List will be available on 21 April!!!

In past years, many items on the Retiring List have sold out so quickly (and by quickly, I mean some items have sold out within the first few hours!!!)… so my advice to you is:

1.  If there is something that you want from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue that you could not live without, make sure you get it now! (Shop Online 24/7)

2.  If there are items you are maybe thinking about purchasing, be sure to check the Retiring List FIRST THING on Tuesday 21st April and make your purchases early, before they sell out.


As I have previously mentioned, MDS is retiring, but ALL My Digital Studio downloads will be on the retiring list and ALL My Digital Studio downloads will be offered at 30% off from 21st April to 2nd June.


This annual catalogue will be ending on 2 June 2015 and not 30 June as stated on the front cover. Why? you ask? Well, the NEW 2015-2016 annual catalogue will launch at 2am on 2nd June!!!! So exciting!!!


On sale until Tuesday 21st April 2015

Convention, MDS

Convention Mini Swaps

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you something that our Stampin’ Up! Art With Heart Team did for Convention 2014 held here in Melbourne this year.

Those who wanted to join this challenge, made a 2″ x 2″ swap using the colour combinations: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Rose Red or Strawberry Slush & Silver.

The idea was to pick a theme, which our up-line Claire chose, Flowers and Friends. I think this was the perfect theme for our lovely team of ladies.

At the end of our first day at Convention, we all met up for a drink and swapped our squares. It was such a lovely idea, getting us all together to chat about Convention, which for many of us, was our first one ever!

So here it is all framed!


I got a 12″ x 12″ white shadow box frame and layered my background with a piece of Strawberry Slush DSP ~ Whisper White cardstock ~ Strawberry Slush cardstock and then the tricky part of adhering those gorgeous 2″ x 2″ squares evenly!!! I think I did okay?!

The top middle square, I created in My Digital Studio (MDS) and then printed it so we can look back on this for many years to come and remember when and why we made it!  For your free 30 day trial of MDS click here. It is awesome to use in conjunction with the new Project Life products which all coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! range.

Here is a close up of the swaps!

Aren’t they just gorgeous? We have such a talented team of ladies and we love to share our ideas with each other.


The new 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue goes live on 1 July, but if you would like to receive a copy before then, please Contact Me. This catalogue is full of amazing new products and wonderful colour pictures for ideas. It is a must have for anyone interested in Ink, Paper and Stamps!

Digital Scrapbooking

Hello Crafters,

My photographs have been left to sit on the computer or in packets in cupboards, for long enough now 😦

I really needed to get stuck into some scrapbooking!!!! YAY!!!

I began with some 12″ x 12″ pages, but was finding it a little overwhelming, so I went back to the computer and opened up My Digitial Studio (MDS).

I only went back as far as 2011 (but to be honest, I have only done one years worth of my oldest daughter who is about to turn 8 this year!)

Below are a few pages I have done and I will be sure to share more with you over the following weeks!


Here is a page of my youngest daughter who used to pull the funniest faces when the camera came out ~ and you know what, until I looked at these photos again, I had already forgotten about this!!!!

MDS Scrapbooking

Here my girls are in the backyard with a “friend” from kinder!

MDS Scrapbooking

and here is their birthday party from that year ~ yes, the movie Rapunzel was a huge release here and that was all they wanted me to make for their birthday (I have deliberately blotted out faces to protect identity).

MDS Scrapbooking


You too can create some wonderful layouts in MDS.

You can also do a combination of digital and traditional scrapbooking because as you know, Stampin’ Up! colours, papers, embellishments all coordinate!!!!
