• Let’s go WILD!

    The day has come, it’s new release day! The first one in a while. Believe it or not this kit was “started” back in June last year, but with so many pitfalls and events happening in the past year it just got pushed back and back and even I started to wonder if it’d ever get finished up… But here it is!! I say “started” because when I went back to this kit recently, I pretty much gutted it and started from the beginning, and let me say I’m sooooo glad I did. I just LOVE how it turned out this time around, a fresh pair of eyes was definitely what was needed! I’m so excited to finally share with you: That Tree:

    That Tree | Kit

    MD_TT_PREV_KIT

    ‘That Tree’ was inspired by an iconic Animal Park, located in the happiest place on Earth! With 6 solids, 12 patterned papers, 2 full upper and lowercase wooden alphas (light wood/ dark wood) and over 75 elements – this kit has you covered for all of those fun filled ‘wild’ memories! Whether it be for Animal Kingdom snapshots, trips to the zoo or just for scrapping your inner wild child!

    I also worked on some extras for this kit that I think you are going to love, just take a look:

    That Tree | Journal Cards

    That Tree | Bonus Alpha

    MD_TT_PREV_BonusAlphas

    That Tree | Tree Sections

    And if you like the look of it all, I even packaged it all up into a bundle. Meaning you can snag all five products for a discounted price!

    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…

    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:

    Gorgeous right? And such a variety of pages with this one kit!  I know I’ll be using it a lot more when I get back, especially to scrap all the fun of this years MNSSHP (which I’ll be at tomorrow, eeek)! 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:

    OH THE HORROR ALPHASMD_OTH_Alphas

    Before I get to your freebie I just want to remind you of the challenge Rebecca s hosting over at Mousescrappers. Scrap a layout following her instructions in the weekly challenge thread and you’ll receive this little Nightmare-ish add-on from me:

    That’s all from me this week. There’ll be no new release next week for DSD unfortunately but I will be having a sale alongside some fun games, so make sure you stop by.

    Happy Halloween!

  • Wined & Dined +Freebie

    A while ago I held a competition where I’d work with you to design a kit of your choosing. The winner was Lisa Marie with this kit suggestion:

    “Mine would be Food and Wine Festival or Disney food in general. Ex. menu, knife, fork plate, wine, snack items. The food is a big part of Disney to us!”

    Lisa and I exchanged a few messages about what she envisioned for the kit and I got to work. And I have to say I love how it turned out!!

    Wined & Dined

    MD_Preview_W&DWined & Dined was such a fun kit for me to create: the rich colours, foodie elements and elegant papers make this kit the perfect accompaniment to your dining pages! With 12 papers, 6 solids, 2 full uppercase alphas (black and gold) and over 65 elements you’ll be reaching for this kit time and time again.

    My team have scrapped such a wide variety of pages, from Disney Dining, “real world” food, wine tastings, vineyards, cooking classes or you could even use it to scrap your own little chef in action. Just check out their amazing pages:

    I love seeing this mini in action -my girls rocked it as always!


    Did you take part in the games I ran over iNSD? If so lets see if you are a luck winner…

    First up, a lot of you played along with “How Many Mickey’s?” Rather surprisingly not one person guessed under the actual amount, it must look like there are way more Mickey heads than there actually are! The correct answer was …

    So congratulations to:

    Cissy Daniels Shields for her guess of 108;

    Sheryl McClenny Gibson for her guess of 110;

    and Claire McCaughan for her guess of 115!

    The second game I ran had you guys suggesting your ‘dream kits’. This was a tough game to narrow down – there were sooo many great suggestions! But I put my favourites to my CT team and they voted on their favourite and the winner is…

    Lisa Marie with this kit suggestion:

    “Mine would be Food and Wine Festival or Disney food in general. Ex. menu, knife, fork plate, wine, snack items. The food is a big part of Disney to us!”

    Congratulations ladies! I will be in touch with each of you later today to discuss your prizes!

    Thanks to everyone that took part!


    Lastly, here is a little freebie that co-ordinates with the Sorcerer mini, hope you like it:

    Have a Magical weekend and don’t forget to check out my May challenge!
