  • Mousescrapper’s Weekly Challenge

    Hi, hi! I thought I’d let you all know that I’m hosting this week’s Weekly Challenge over at Mousescrappers. I haven’t hosted in a long time, so it’d be nice to ‘see’ you over there! Anyone that participates in my challenge will win this beautiful PP, that I put together to go with my upcoming release “That Tree”:

    That Tree Add On by Melidy Designs

    Plus I’ll be randomly drawing one scrapper to win the full kit – so make sure you check it out and take part, that’s the ONLY way to get this prize pack.  It won’t be offered anywhere else.

  • I’m Celebrating | New Release, Sale & Speed Scrap Info

    Hello Hello!

    Today marks the start of the Mousescrappers Annual Speed Scrap Marathon Weekend! It’s an exciting weekend full of chats, scraps and prizes that you won’t want to miss. If you’ve never heard of it, essentially the weekend is made up of 14 Speed Scraps, complete each speed scrap within the allotted time and you get the participation prize. If you complete half of the Speed Scraps you ALSO get the half marathon goodie bag, complete ALL of the speed scraps and you get the full marathon goodie bag ON TOP OF THAT! So, you see how the prizes can rack up fast depending on how many scraps you can fit in this weekend.

    And for those of you that don’t know what a speed scrap is, each speed scrap starts with a chat at specific time (you can check the full list here). In the chat the hostess will give a set of instructions for things to include on your page, like a recipe, the first is given on the hour, and then the following instructions are given one by one, usually at 10 minute increments, for the duration of the hour long chat. The hostess will then give you a deadline to turn in your page by to receive the prize…. It sounds scary but I promise you it’s not! You can either join in on the chat (more info here), or follow along with the instructions in the forums (found here). Either way as long as you have your page in the corresponding thread by the deadline you will receive the prize.

    Sound good? Well make sure you join me for my chat today at  2:00pm EDT | 1:00pm CDT | 12.00pm MDT | 11:00am PDT | 6:00pm GMT (which is actually  7:00pm British Summer Time). Anyone that completes my Speed Scrap on time will pick up these cute journal cards and charms:

    And my CT member Becca is also hosting a Speed Scrap this Sunday, make sure you  join her at 10:00am EDT | 9:00am CDT | 8:00am MDT | 7:00am PDT | 2:00pm GMT (which is actually  3:00pm British Summer Time). I also donated the prize to her scrap, you can pick up this fun Mouse Stamped alpha pack:

    MD_Preview_MouseStamped

    Neither of these prizes will EVER be available for sale, so the only way to grab them is to take part!

    And talking of sales….. to celebrate the Marathon my ENTIRE store is 40% off all weekend long!!! This is the perfect time to pick up your must haves!
    Sale Ad!I also have a new kinda new kit hitting the shop today.  A Magical Celebration was previously offered as a part of the Magical Mousetery tour, but now it’s been tweaked slightly and added to my shop.  It too is on sale this weekend only, so now is the perfect time to pick it up if you missed it!

    A Magical Celebration

    Usual Price: $3.75
    This Weekend Only: $2.25

  • That Globe!

    I have a new kit to share with you all today! That Globe is a kit inspired by Spaceship Earth at Epcot.  I for one, can’t enter the park without taking a picture in front of that iconic monument, and this kit has all you need to scrap those precious memories! The metallic elements add a fun, futuristic touch, whilst the soft colour palette means your pages will still have that classic look:

    That Globe

    The kit has 12 patterned papers. 6 solids, 65 elements and a full upper and lowercase alpha – everything you need for preserving your innovative memories. Whether you use this kit for Epcot snapshots, trips to the science museum, science fair projects or just all your bright ideas, this kit has you covered!

    Plus if that wasn’t enough I also have a couple of add-on packs:

    That Globe –  Bonus Alphas

    That Globe – Journal Cards

    Here’s the page I scrapped using the kit (and I just know I’m going to be using it more during the marathon):

  • Ghost Host!

    When the crypt doors creak, and the tombstones quake
    Spooks come out for a swinging wake
    Happy haunts materialize
    And begin to vocalize
    Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize!!

    I had this kit in mind for a Halloween release last year, but with me being so sick I never managed to make that into a reality. I was going to put it off until halloween this year but I figured if a spooky time can be had all year ’round in the Magic Kingdom… then what’s stopping me from releasing it now! I present to you Ghost Host:

    I think it’s pretty obvious that a rather famous mansion was the inspiration behind this kit was, but with 12 patterned papers, 6 solids, and over 70 elements it can also be used for a host of other things, including halloween layouts, haunted houses, horror nights or even just scary movie nights at home.

    Ready for some inspiration using Ghost Host? Here’s what I scarpped:

    and check out my CT’s beautiful pages:

    And if you stuck with me through all of that you deserve a reward, here is the freebie for this release, a few co-ordinating word arts:

  • 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!
