Just looking at the Minds Eye Lost and Found collection- I am pretty sure December is spelt wrong (Decemeber)on the die cut sheet with the calendar die cut. How on earth do I fix it? I really wanted to use it on my cards but don't want a spelling mistake!

Ooops.

You already own this or are contemplating purchasing it?

I have ordered it (from a local supplier as I am in New Zealand) and am waitng for it to arrive. Was looking at the ideas using this product link and noticed that something didn't look quite right! I might ring them when they open and see if I can get a refund- I would use all the other pieces though.

Definately a spelling mistake. I would check with them to ensure the actual sheets are spelled correctly, they could have had a misprint on the sample sheet.

Good Luck and let us know your outcome!

I wouldn't cancel the order. You could print something in a similar font and adhere it right over the top.

I'd at least email the company about it, though.

Classic!!!


It's misspelled in one place, but is correct in another.

It looks to be product-wide. The examples of projects with this ALL have the error.
I find it funny that people used the product and didn't notice it.

Yes, there are heaps of Christmas card examples on here with the spelling mistake- I don't want to tell them though! Might email the company later on today and let them know.

Ugh, that would keep me from buying it altogether. In the past I've had to mess around to remove errant apostrophes from rub-ons, and another time I had to cover a section of a map paper on which the compass rose had east and west in the wrong places (I had ordered it online and couldn't see the error in the online preview).

I agree. I wouldn't order/buy it.
But, if someone already has it, what would you do?
I would probably try to print "December" on the same color paper and cover the error.

I would make the layout highlighting the error. That is too funny.

Oh MY! Well this is in my wish list as well as some of the Websters, guess I just made a decision thanks to you! Too bad I like that paper too. I can't believe how many people have used it and didn't notice. DUH.

Is there a way you can us it and make fun of it...like a child did it? Hmmmm.....

I agree, I'd try to cover it with something - either another sticker or embellishment that says December, or one of my own devising, or, if it came to it, just hiding that bit under the edge of a photo or piece of layered paper.

This is funny. I have that sheet but have not used it yet & didn't notice until you brought it to my attention. DUH. I love that line, I will probably use it anyway, I wonder how many people would notice?

LOL - Ooops - someone at MME made a boo boo!! I would definitely contact the company. If you have ordered it - I would wait to see if what comes in is a corrected version and if not - I would contact them again. I'm sure that they will send you a new product. Please let us know how it comes in!! as well as what the company does.

thanks!

I have not had any response as yet from the company either by emial or via their facebook page. Since I emailed them on the 2nd November I would have expected a reply by now.

I would embellish it like some of the others have suggested. Or perhaps you could just use DEC.
