    Hello, hello. Firstly I apologize this is coming to you so late, because of that I’m going to let the link remain active through February to ensure everyone has plenty of time to download. Secondly I have a quick none-MMT announcement  to make before getting onto the main download:

    ** If any of you who participated in last years challenges still have not received a prize, please email me or send me a private message on Facebook. All prizes were sent out some time ago but I’ve just recently received a couple of emails saying nothing was received. It seems I may be having problems with my email, but I will respond from my personal email account in hopes it will resolve any issues**

     

    Now onto the reason you’re all here, welcome to the January Magical Mousetery Tour “A Magical Tomorrow”. If you’re following the Tour route from start to finish, you should have arrived here from Triple J Designs and your next stop will be Heather Z Scraps.

    Remember, if you get lost along the way, head on back to the main Magical Mousetery Tour post to view the master list and get back on track.

     DOWNLOAD EXPIRED, you can now pick this item up in my store HERE.

    MD_Tomorrowland_Alpha_PREV

    *Again, I am using MediaFire as that seems to work best for the majority. If you have any issues with Mediafire let me know in the comments and I will find another way to get the link to you*

    I hope you like the alpha!

  • May your days be Merry & Bright

    Firstly, I hope you all had a wonderful christmas. Mine was just what I wanted, a fun, laughter filled day with those I hold nearest and dearest.

    Now on to the main reason I’m here… I have a new release for you all! There’s no better thing to do on Boxing day than relax and do a little scrapping of your christmas memories while they are still fresh in your head.  Today’s release is the perfect festive accompaniment to ALL those holiday photos you no doubt just took…

    With 12 patterned papers, 3 solids, 3 glitters and 68 festive elements; this is the perfect kit for scrapping the most wonderful time of the year – from first decorating the tree, to meets with Santa to the opening of presents on christmas day….

    Getting myself into the festive mood with this kit gave me an excuse to check over our MNSSHP photopass pictures (which I hadn’t had the chance to do since downloading), and even though I didn’t have Disney in mind when creating the kit I just love how it ended up working with our photos!

  • This is Halloween!

    I am soo excited for this weeks release!!! I desperately wanted to do a halloween kit last year, but I wound up getting REALLY sick and I didn’t get around to it.  This year I was determined to release a kit because… well because, I LOVE halloween!! So I’m not going to let a little thing like being at Walt Disney World stop me from celebrating the season with a brand new kit (and I also have a freebie for you at the end of this post, so make sure you keep reading). Let’s jump straight in:

    NIGHTMARE-ISH
    MD_N_Kit_PREVIEW

    Nightmare-ish was inspired by one of my favourite movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas. I LOVE how this kit came out! It contains, 12 patterned papers, 6 solids, 1 full upper and lowercase alpha and over 65 spooktacular elements – everything you need to create beautiful halloween pages!

    I also made a bonus alpha in a fun stamped design, perfect for adding a little extra touch of the macabre to your page:

    NIGHTMARE-ISH: BONUS ALPHA

    MD_Preview_N_BAI’ve had a crazy week of packing, planning and traveling to the States, so I haven’t managed to carve out any time to play with this kit… Yet, but I KNOW I’ll be using it to scrap all my halloween pics when I get back!! Especially after I started seeing the pages my team were making, they knocked the layouts for this kit out of the park!! See for yourself:

I also added a past participation prize to the store, since it was halloween themed it seemed like a good time to add it to the store:

  • Freebie – Girly Stripe Alpha

    I’ve been thinking about childhood a lot recently, deciding whether or not to start a scrapbook looking back over mine and Phill’s earlier years – the years before we knew one another. Not only would it be good to look at and discover a little more about each others childhoods but if we have children of our own in the future I imagine they’d love seeing us grow up through our own perspectives.  I wish I had something like that of my mother.

    I’ve tried thinking about what kind of child I was.  I know I wasn’t that much of a Girly Girl, but then again I wasn’t a total tomboy either. I loved Polly Pockets and Barbie, but was rarely dressed in pink, nor did I do much ‘dressing-up’ or parading around in my mum’s heels.  I wore jeans a lot, played with the boys just as much as the girls at school and wasn’t all that distraught if I got a little dirty or muddy.

    When I think about it I’m still like that as an adult. A bit of a hybrid between things that are considered ‘feminine’ like my love of baking and dresses, and things that are considered ‘masculine’ like gaming  and comfortable sneakers. I guess most people are like that to an extent.

    Despite this, those  initial baby years seem to be similar for most. As I look through hospital photos I notice the blue blanket wrapped around Phill, the pink on wrapped around me, for a while at least we are all split into those two distinct categories  –  Baby Boy Johnson and Baby Girl Robb.  With that in mind, here is this week’s freebie:

    Girly Stripe Alpha

    Check out the blog next week for the opposing  boyish alpha freebie.

    Thanks for stopping by, have a Magical weekend!

  • Templates?

    Hey everyone, many of you have noticed a lack of posts over this past month. I appreciate the e-mails of concern and to those of you wondering where the templates are, don’t worry they haven’t gone anywhere, I’ve just had to take a break due to being unwell.  I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things and next week there will be a couple of freebies back up on the blog.  Yey! So keep an eye out for that.  As for new products you’ll have to give me a couple of weeks but I have something fun up my sleeve that I look forward to sharing with you!

    In other news,  join me and my awesome CT girl Jlynn tomorrow for a speed scrap over at Mousescrappers at 5pm EST! There’ll be a fun chat and you’ll get this cute ‘Frozen’ prize if you complete a layout in the designated time:

    Love thaws

    Hope to see you there!

    Lastly I’m having a REALLY informal CT call for any of you that read the blog – I’m looking for one or two scrappers to join my team!  If you are interested send me an e-mail at melidydesigns@gmail.com with a little about you and a link to your work. If you join my team you’ll have full access to my kits with the requirement that you create a layout per new release and post to three online galleries, it’s as sample as that. I’m not looking for any particular style or skill level so please don’t be put off from applying!!

    That’s all for now, don’t forget to check back next week.  Have a magical weekend!
