  • 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:

  • 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:
    MD_4P1W_JC+C_Preview

    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’s all for now. See you at the chat later today!!

  • New Release | Pocketed: Volume 1

    Hello, hello! I have a new release for you all today, a new set of templates that will make your pocket style layouts come together in a snap!

    POCKETED: VOL 1
    MD_PocketedVol1_PREVIEW

    I’ve always LOVED photo focus templates and so,I figured why not  incorporate them into my Pocket scrapping? Each template has a simple graphic design, meaning you can let your imagination run and customise ’till your heart’s content… Plus there’s endless mixing and matching that can be done, allowing you to create the perfect pocketed page every time!

    Just check out these layouts from my girls using this new template pack:

    Downtown Disney Layout by October using Play Well - Melidy Designs

    Family layout by Sheryl using Day & Night - Melidy Designs

    Lego Store layout by Megan using Play Well - Melidy Designs

    Snow Layout by Teresa using Believe in Pink - Melidy Designs

    Artist's Point Layout by Jlynn using Wined & Dined - Meldy Designs

    Lego Buildng Fun Layout by Brandy using Play Well - Melidy Designs

    Mickey Mouse layout by Claire using Mr & Ms Mouse - Melidy Designs

    Winter Snow layout by Linda using Baby It's Cold Outside - Melidy Designs

    Lego Wedding Layout by Mo using Play Well - Melidy Designs

    Snow Layout by Rebecca using Believe in Pink and Baby It's Cold Outside - Melidy Designs

    I loved seeing how each of them used these templates,  I just know these templates are going to become my new stash staples!

    Now I’m off to put the finishing touches to my donations to the Mousescrappers Marathon 😉 Hope to “see” you there!

  • 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:

    And as promised here’s your freebie, a fun set of coordinating journal cards:

    MD_N_BF_preview
    As usual there is also a couple of other freebies to be found, one on my facebook page, and one for those of you signed up to my newsletter! Make sure you snag them while you can!

    Lastly, the seek peak giveaway winner was…. Anne S. Congratulations Anne, contact me at melidydesigns@gmail.com to receive your free kit!

    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!
