Reminder: Back Up Your MDS! And How to find the Product Key.

Hello all,
Just a friendly reminder to everyone who purchased My Digital Studio that you need to back up all your downloads and your MDS programme itself.  Remember too to make a note of your MDS Product Key in case you wish to reinstall it on another computer.  This is URGENT.
Not sure where to find your Product Key?  Here's how.
1.  Open MDS, open any project.   2.  Go to the HELP tab, then About MDS. 3. Click the Support Tab, and you'll see the product key. 4. Take a screen shot and upload the screenshot to the external hard drive/disc/USB you are saving everything to.
Please do this before the end of the month.  

Sneak Peek #1 - Hostess Sets!

One of the best perks of being a Demonstrator is that I get my hands on the new catalogue first - and I love it!  I've only had it less than a week, but already my copy of the 2015-16 catalogue is decidedly dog-eared and has highlighter scribbles all through it, LOL.  I still keep finding things I overlooked on the first 100 flips through! At Convention, we were shown the new Hostess sets.  What are hostess sets?  They are a perk for our Hostesses, because these special stamp sets can only be purchased using the Stampin' Rewards earned  by hosting a party that has a qualifying amount of sales.  Or who has a large enough personal order. Want to see some cute samples by Katie Adams (from Stampin' Up! home office in the USA)?  These pics aren't great, as I took them from the overhead screens while Katie was onstage.
There are five new Hostess sets in the upcoming catalogue, though I only have photos of three, as the other pictures didn't work out.  What other new pro…

Convention 2015 Wrapup

What a week!  This past week has been quite hectic for me.  I am, like many of you, involved in my children's schools and activities, run a busy household, and work part time in addition to my Stampin' Up! business.  There were Parent Support Group emails to write; Thing 1's braces were removed; I donated some artwork of mine and Stampin' Up! product to a raffle being run by some mothers from Thing 4's school;  we have a boisterous 4 month old puppy who needs exercising twice a day; and then I went away to the Gold Coast for four days  for Convention.
It is probably not surprising I felt quite guilty, knowing that while I was away Thing 3 would be attending her first school camp, Thing 1 was fencing in a school competition on the other side of town all day on Saturday, the puppy had puppy school and Thing 2 had a sleepover to attend.  And weather forecasts predicted thunderstorms during that period.  So I was wondering whether I ought to go at all, even as I was d…
