Q. Where do you find your design inspiration?
My inspiration usually comes from my customers and my team. They are an endless source of energy, inspiration and ideas.
Q. What about designing do you enjoy the most?
I love the process of designing but my favorite part is probably the joy I feel when I’ve created something I really really love and seeing the beautiful pages and projects my customers and team create.
Q. Why do you love Disney?
It’s the happiest place on earth! What’s not to love? Disney to me is like a piece of childhood preserved. It’s magic, it’s imagination and fun.
Q. Who is your favourite character?
That’s a tough one. I love all the original classic characters because that’s what I grew up with. I think it’s a toss up between Mickey and Pluto. I love Pluto. And Donald. Oh boy I can’t decide.

Q. Where do you find your design inspiration?
I have a long list of kits that I would like to do, My inspiration can come from the smallest thing and it just grows from there. I like to browse the internet a lot, Pinterest is both my friend and my enemy.
Q. What about designing do you enjoy the most?
My favorite part of designing is seeing it all to come together in the end. My team does a fabulous job of showcasing my creations! It’s an absolutely amazing feeling to come across a page in a gallery that was created with my product! Many thanks to the ladies who have supported me over the years! I’d have tossed in the towel long ago if you I didn’t have you!❤
Q. Why do you love Disney?
Every day is a Disney Day at my house. Ever since I was little, Disney has brought joy to my life.  Disney has a way of bringing out the flood of emotions in me. Don’t read this like I’m the only one, I know you cry too when they show those “pull at your heart strings” commercials! Disney holds a special place in my heart, I will visit as often as I can, no matter how old I get!
Q. Who is your favourite character?
Minnie Mouse is my absolute favorite, she is just adorable!! But as a true Disney lover, I cycle through a bunch of them, Tinkerbell, Pooh, Mickey, the list goes on!

7 Days to “A Magical Frontier” | Designer Reveal – Joyful Expressions

Only one week to go until “A Magical Frontier”! We’re continuing the countdown today by welcoming Jenni of Joyful Expressions to her first Magical Mousetery Tour. So let’s get to know Jenni a little better, and make sure you read ’till the end to see her sneak peek of the amazing  freebie that will be on her blog come September 1st!


MMT_Joyful_Spotlight

MMT_DFBanner_Intro

I’m Jenni from Joyful Expressions. I started designing over 10 years ago under the name Scrapalicious Cereal but changed that clearly destined to be misspelled moniker when I switched stores and started selling at Scraps N Pieces. I live in NC with my husband and 2 girls, 16 and 14, both of whom I homeschool and one of whom happens to have autism. We are in the stage of life where I spend most of my time in my car shuttling girls from classes and activities–dance and scouts for one girl and horses and art for the other.  I find myself staying up into the wee hours of the night just to get my scrap fix on.

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. What inspires your designs most?
Our family photos. I love themes and I started designing because I wanted kits to match my photos both thematically and in color scheme. Each time I have a photo that I can’t scrap with an existing kit, a new kit is born.

Q. How would you describe your design style?
Fun! I try to create whimsical, fun designs that will help others scrap layouts that make them smile.

Q. What is your favourite restaurant on property?
We love most of the sit-down resort restaurants with our favorite being Whispering Canyon Cafe with it’s bottomless milkshakes and all-you-can eat skillets. But for years we struggled finding a place to eat in the Magic Kingdom park. Finally we discovered the Columbia Harbour House. It counts as a quick service credit but the food is so much better than a standard burger or hotdog. I love the battered fish plate that comes with coleslaw and choice of corn cobbette, apple slices or french fries . In addition you get a dessert and a drink.

Q. Do you have a favourite tip or strategy for the parks?
We homeschool so one of favorite things to do is to go to Disney when everyone else is in school. We have gone in November, December, January, February and March. In November and December it was still warm enough for the kids to play in the hotel pools. But in January the parks were empty and we felt like we had the place to ourselves.

8 Days to “A Magical Frontier” | Designer Reveal – Meg Scott Studio

We aren’t far off single digits, only 11 day’s to go until the September Magical Mousetery Tour! We’re continuing the countdown today by welcoming Meg of Meg Scott Designs back to the Magical Mousetery Tour. So let’s get to know Meg a little better, and make sure you read ’till the end to see her sneak peek of the amazing  freebie that will be on her blog come September 1st!


MMT_MegScott_Spotlight

MMT_DFBanner_Intro

My name is Megan Scott and I currently live in Arizona with my amazing husband, youngest daughter and 3 furry babies. I love to write, create – all kinds of crafts, read, and enjoy spending time with family playing games or being silly. I have been designing since April 2012 and love it!

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. Where does your color inspiration come from?
My color inspiration comes from art that I see all around. Whether is a photograph of a wedding or a photo manipulation of a fantasy art piece of a unicorn, or even a painting, to me art inspires art.

Q. How would you describe your design style?
I don’t think I have an actual style because I like being eclectic. I base my kits on what the inspiration is from. For instance, my ‘Build Me a Fairytale Kit’ was inspired from Disney, but the colors and styles of the different princes and princesses. Or my kit ‘The Sundry Geek’ that is based on my friends and who they are, total nerds but they love it. Would I be boring if I had just one style? 😛

Q. Who is your favourite character?
I am a huge Tinkerbell and Nightmare Before Christmas fan, but now I have to add Star Wars to that list!!

Q. Are you currently planning your next trip?
We are hoping to go on a Disney Cruise next year as well as visit Star Wars.
