Beside myself

Hello crafters
I want you to imagine the biggest, loudest and longest squeal of excitement you can imagine me making.........
Just been told that I am doing a Pick of the Day next Tuesday with Brother Brian and.........
My DVD is being launched.
I am sooooo excited that it eventually ready.
Fingers crossed it all goes ahead but if anything changes I will let you know.
 Have had a very busy 3 weeks creating 7 advanced projects for the next scan cut project book so there is lots of inspiration coming your way.
Please join me next Tuesday at 9pm on Ideal World.

Massive hugs

  1. Can't wait I will be watching. Still have not done very much with Brian.
    Hope your DVD will give me the the courage to get going.
    Take care.

  2. I can feel your excitement from here :-) I will be watching. SueL x

  3. Hi Mel

    Will the DVD be launched just in UK or will it be available worldwide?


  4. That's great hope this will give me the confidence to use Brian only used twice since I got it

  5. Fantastic news Mel can't wait for the show and to get the DVD.

  6. Oooooh, how exciting. I can't wait. Finally got my "Betty" (named after my beautiful mum, RIP) this year and am not yet confident with it. Me and technology aren't great. Even had problems trying to comment on this blog (lol :-) ) I'll definitely be tuned in. x

  7. Brilliant news, I've missed you on our screens and your blog has been so quiet.
    Really looking forward to the DVD in the hope that I can free up some space on my Sky box :-)

  8. Hi Mel. I am excited to see the projects on your dvd. Can I ask a question whilst we are waiting please? I am trying to cut a pattern I have created in canvas on the 12 x24 mat but the area size is only shown as 12 x 12. Can you help or is it a case we can't create anything larger than 12 inch even though the larger mat is advertised as being for cutting up to 24 inch? Thanks in advance Mel

  9. Hi Kath
    Go in to settings and change the mat size in cut area. You can't scan the longer mats in though.x

    1. Thanks Mel. I am pleased to say I managed to get the full screen to come up and I have managed to get the cards made. xx

  10. Hi Mel. So excited, my DVD is ordered after receiving an email from create and craft. I am looking forward to receiving it. Thanks for all your tips and projects you have shown us on the shows over the past year. I don't know what Brother have in store for the future but could you please ask if it is possible to have a white pen for the fake stitching. Thanks again and keep up with the shows xx

  11. Just had an email from Create & Craft about the DVD so had to order it, can't wait for it to arrive, but in the meantime will look forward to watching you on Tuesday. Thanks Mel for all your help and inspiration which I, and I'm sure lots of other people, have found invaluable, I couldn't have done it without you. Can I second Kath's marvellous idea for a white pen.
    Thank once again Mel, keep up the brilliant work. Miriam

  12. I also got the email and have ordered. Looking forward to watching your DVD and PoD. Have fun. SueL x

  13. Sadly I haven't received an email from C & C, but thanks to the ladies on this blog, I've been able to go online ahead of tomorrows show and order mine. Can't wait until tomorrow to watch your demos Mel. Just a suggestion, would it be possible to have metallic pens, as well as the white one mentioned above? Also, are there any plans to have an embossing tool? Thanks for all your help, support and inspiration Mel - you're fabulous. Look forward to watching tomorrow. xx
