Yes, today is the day Brian and I fly out to Utah.  Mum and Dad have moved in so I know all at home will be fine I am pretty sure we are packed, well I have the important things……..swaps !  When ever Stampin’ Up! demonstrators meet we swap sample cards, it’s a great way of getting new ideas and falling in love with products you never knew you needed!

So first up we are flying from Heathrow to Dallas and then on to Salt Lake City, arriving late on Wednesday evening.  I have set the blog up to post a few days whilst I’m away with a bit of information of what we will be getting up to and some wonderful new projects.  If you want to see some pictures as they are happening, I’ll be posting on my Inspiring Inkin’ Facebook page which you can find by clicking HERE.

I will do a round up on my blog when we get back, with more pictures too.

So I promised new projects well I have lots and lots to share, you never know I might even get back on track with my 365 crafty projects ( You can read all about my challenge by clicking HERE).

So to break you in gently I have a card today, made using a brand new product that I know you have been waiting for and you will adore!

It’s called My Digital Studio or MDS and it is coming soon to the UK and Europe.  My Digital Studio enables you to digitally create a variety of projects including (but not limited to) photobooks, cards, calendars, and individual scrapbook pages that use exclusive Stampin’ Up! stamps, paper, accessories, and colours.

Now I have been asking for this product since it launched in the USA and I know you are going to love it as much as I do.  I was part of a design team to trial the software here in Europe and have made lots of projects and it’s so easy to use.  When it is available it will cost  £13.95  or   €17.95 and it has so much content included, but better still there is a 30 dayFREE trial available too.

So onto the project, a really quick card, I hope you love it!
