  • 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.

  • Tuesday Template #27 | July Challenge

    Sorry this is coming late, I’d scheduled the posts but WordPress had other plans, and since I’ve been away all week I’m only just getting around to catching up now!  Scroll to the next post for the Featured Product for July!


    I’ll be honest, when it comes to my own personal layouts I rarely do single photo layouts… I’m snap happy, so I rarely have need for a page to have a single photo.  But every once in awhile, I get that special moment that really needs to be honed in on and have  a page of its own to really shine. When that happens I almost always reach for a template… because (honestly) my brain doesn’t know how to handle starting a page with a single photo and I end up staring at a blank screen for a little while…

    This month’s template is all about clean lines and simplicity to really make your single photo pop and focus on the memory:

    MD_PREV_TuesTemp#27

    Challenge – Use this month’s template (make sure you use at least a little of my products on your page – freebies included) before the month is up and you’ll receive the participation prize. Feel free to make the template your own and have fun with it!

    Anyone that completes a page and shares a link to it in the comments of this post by midnight on the 31st of July will receive this month’s participation prize!

    **The prize will change from month to month, some months it might be a mini-kit, other month a journal card pack, next month an alpha and so on. **

    What’s more, I’m allowing double dipping with this and the Featured Product drawing, so one layout can qualify you for BOTH the participation prize and the $10 gift certificate drawing, providing you use the template and the featured product somewhere on your layout!

    Here’s what CT member Mo created with this month’s template and this month’s featured product Sorcerer, I just love that blended picture:

    Thank you to everyone that submitted a page throughout May, whether it was by comment, email or facebook, each month your pages blow me away… I will be in touch later today with your prize so keep an eye on your inboxes!

    Looking forward to seeing your pages with this month’s template!

  • Tuesday Template #22 | February Challenge

    Who’s ready for this month’s free template? Right now I’m loving using journal cards on normal 12×12 layouts…  While I do love “project life” style pages, sometimes I like to mix it up a little in my books BUT I still want to be able to use those cute journal cards.  February’s template is just that, a simple minimalist design with space for  a couple of your favourite cards and a fun strip of photos:

    MD_TuesTemp#22_PREVIEWIf you like this style of template make sure to check out my Carded: Volume 1 templates.

    Challenge – Use the template (make sure you use at least a little of my products on your page – freebies included) before the month is up and you’ll receive a participation prize. Feel free to make the template your own and have fun with it!

    Anyone that completes a page and shares a link to it in the comments of this post by  midnight on the 29th of February will receive this month’s participation prize! This month’s PP is now available in my store, Pocketed | Volume 1:

    MD_PocketedVol1_PREVIEW

    **The prize will change from month to month, some months it might be a mini-kit, other month a journal card pack, next month an alpha and so on. **

    January – Tuesday Template #21

    This month’s template is a beautiful blocked style page with lots of space for journaling. Anyone that knows me knows I love to journal LOTS in my pages, but if you don’t, add in extra photo spots, a block of patterned paper or a huge title – Make the template your own!

  • 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:

  • 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!

  • Hidden Mickey Hunt – Freebie!

    If you travel to any of the Disney parks or pay close attention to the Disney movies you may be aware of a fun part of Disney Imagineering – Hidden Mickeys!

    There are thousands hidden throughout the Disney Parks, Disney Cruise Lines, Films and I’ve even noticed one or two in my local Disney Store. Once you start hunting them it can become addictive! We’ve even started seeing them in everyday life. For those of you that are new to the concept, a Hidden Mickey can be painted, drawn or made up of circular objects (two small ‘ears’, and one larger ‘head’).

    Here are a couple of examples from the parks from Disneys most recent animated releases:

    Hidden Mickey examples

    I’ve put together a FREE Hidden Mickey themed element pack for anyone who takes part in Jlynn’s Scraplift Challenge over at Mousescrappers.com – the only way to get it is by playing along!

    Hidden Mickey Hunt Freebie

    Hope to see you there!
