MMT_DesignerFeature_MelidyDesigns.png

We are so excited to be here today, welcoming back Melissa of Melidy Designs as the 12th contributor to the June 2016 Magical Mousetery Tour. So, let’s get to know her and her designs a little better:

how-long-designing

I “officially” started designing almost two years ago now… I’d been dabbling in design, with various freebies and challenges since I first started digital scrapbooking but “Melidy Designs” came to life in June 2014.

favorite-character

As an avid Disney fan I find this one a toughie, I have too many… I have a favourite princess, a favourite animal etc but overall?! I’m going to have to go for Tinkerbell, I love her feisty but loyal nature.

design-inspiration

Anywhere and everywhere! Literally.  From my own photographs and memories, to a colour set, to my customers, to internet sources like pinterest… Once I get a tiny spark of an idea for a kit I just run with it!

love-Disney

How can you not love Disney? I fell in love with Disney magic from a very young age and now I am grown, I love and appreciate it at a whole new level…  It’s all of the little things and the attention to detail that always enchants me and will ensure Disney stays close to my heart!

enjoy-the-most

I love the process of designing but nothing can beat scrolling through a gallery or pin board and seeing a page created using my products. To know that I have contributed to someones memory keeping is a very special feeling.

June 2016 Tour Designer Reveal #10: Designs by Romajo

0616-romajo

Today we are welcoming back another familiar face! We are excited to reveal Marieke of Designs by Romajo as the 10th contributor to the June 2016 Magical Mousetery Tour. So, let’s get to know her and her designs a little better:

how-long-designing

Back in 2011 I started with creating some small freebies for blog trains. I loved doing it and in April 2012 I opened my first shop, which I moved 1.5 years later. At the end of 2014 I closed my shop, and opened a shop at With Love Studio at the beginning of 2015. Two years ago I got some design classes from a friend, that helped to improve the quality of my designs.

favorite-character

I don’t really have a favorite character, I love to meet them all. I am not so into the Villains and I have a preference for face characters, like the Princesses. If I had to name only one, it would be Stitch, mostly because our daughter is a bit like him.

design-inspiration

I can find inspiration everywhere: music, colors, theme, time of the year, nature, a quote.

love-Disney

First we liked Disney for it’s rides and the fact that everything is themed to the smallest details. The more I have been to Disney parks (Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney World), the more I appreciate the views of Mr. Disney himself and what he tried to give to the people. I also like the experiences you can have and the high quality of everything: details, surroundings, smells, food and so on. Well, I think I do like to the complete experience you have.

enjoy-the-most

Getting everything together: from the vision you have in mind, to the final product. I like it the best when a kit just flows out of your hand. Some palettes just work pretty and you hardly can stop. Other kits are more a struggle, these are normally the kits I am not fond of myself.

0616-dede

Today we are welcoming back DeDe of DesingZ by DeDe as the 9th contributor to the June 2016 Magical Mousetery Tour. So, let’s get to know her and her designs a little better:

how-long-designing

I started designing in 2007.

favorite-character

This one is SO HARD for me because I seriously love all the characters and can’t pick just one. Disney characters are just awesome. Hmmm…..I think I will have to choose a favorite style instead and that is the Disney Tsum Tsum – they are all adorable!

design-inspiration

Most of my designs have a theme so most of my inspiration comes from things I enjoy or experience.

love-Disney

I LOVE the stories and the great morales that are taught in them! I love that you can go into worlds of imagination and be a kid again and experience things that you don’t in your everyday life. Disney makes me HAPPY!

enjoy-the-most

The chance to CREATE and use my imagination and talent. It feels incredible to have something you designed be used by others!

Seven years now I believe?

favorite-character

Cinderella, love her!

design-inspiration

Pinterest is really amazing in what you can find, but it is everywhere from the holidays coming up to the colors at stores.

love-Disney

My husband and I spent our first year of marriage with season passes to Disneyland since we lived so close.  After work we would hop on over (just a few minutes drive) and spend the evening together.  It is one of my favorite memories of living near Anaheim.

enjoy-the-most

Seeing the finished product come together, it always makes me feel happy to see it become what I was hoping it would.

June 2016 Tour Designer Reveal #7: Peppermint Creative

0616-missmint

Although she took a break from the tour in March, we are so excited to welcome back Miss Mint of Peppermint Creative. She is the 14th contributor to the June 2016 Magical Mousetery Tour. So, let’s get to know her and her designs a little better:

how-long-designing

I’ve been designing professionally for a long time. First as a graphic designer at an agency, then as a freelancer and in 2006 I moved into scrapbook design with the launch of Peppermint Creative.

favorite-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.

design-inspiration

My inspiration usually comes from my customers and my team. They are an endless source of energy, inspiration and ideas.

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.

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.

June 2016 Tour Designer Reveal #6: Capturing Magical Memories

0616-capmagic

We are over the moon to have Mary of Capturing Magical Memories back with us on the Magical Mousetery Tour! She is the 6th contributor to the June 2016 Tour.
how-long-designing

Off and on since 2012. I really got into it when I was a designer at Mousescrappers. Once the store closed life got in the way and I stopped designing for a while.

I really was excited when I was asked to join the Magical Moustery Tour as it got my creative juices flowing again.

I am not going back to designing a lot but expect to see me around here contributing and then creating larger companion kits for the themes.

favorite-character

This is going to be odd but I like the second string animals in the Disney movies. HUGE fan of Maximus from Tangled. He has such a personality but is often overlooked.

design-inspiration

From others. I love to hear about their Disney trips and stories of adventure in the parks. I want to try and help them preserve those memories.
In fact I have a Pinterest board set up just for others to share their favorite pages and memories.  I love flipping through them to come up with ideas for capturing them in all different way.

love-Disney

The nostalgia. The ‘remember when’ moments when you see a ride or taste a dole whip.  So many happy memories

enjoy-the-most

Learning something new.  I have just started designing completely in Illustrator so I am on a steep learning curve and I am amazed and what it can do.  Now if I can just do a fraction of that I will be happy.

June 2016 Tour Designer Reveal #4: FranB Designs

0616-franb

Today we are welcoming BACK Fran of FranB Designs to the Magical Mousetery Tour. Fran is the 4th contributor to the June 2016 Tour. So, let’s get to know her and her designs a little better:

how-long-designing

I started selling in a shop November 2011. I did blog freebies for a couple years before that.

favorite-character

Um… all of them? Mickey. I have all of the kitchen accessories to prove it too!

design-inspiration

From so many places. I love colors. Sometimes I will find color palettes and think about them until I think of a theme to use them for. Other times, I will need a theme for my own need and design a kit for that. And sometimes, I just want to do a theme and run with it!  I am a big planner, so I have lists of kits on my to-do list and a folder full of swatches, plus pinterest boards of colors and then I just have to match them up!

love-Disney

It is pure joy. My mother mentioned a few years ago, that my family never looked as happy as we are in our WDW photos. I think I first started being a Disney person in the 80s and 90s because they were the only movies that still were musical. I love the songs. A good amount of the time that I am designing, I am listening to Disney music. Sometimes 80s music, but usually Disney. 🙂

enjoy-the-most

I love seeing the finished product. I love seeing how people use the kit in different ways and I usually do a little “awww” in my head when I see pages with my kits. I fall in love a little bit with each kit as it’s completed.

June 2016 Tour Designer Reveal #3: Natalie’s Place Designs

06-16-Natalie

We are so excited to welcome back Natalie of Natalie’s Place Designs as the 3rd contributor to the June 2016 Magical Mousetery Tour. So, let’s get to know her and her designs a little better:

how-long-designing

I have been an artist for most of my life, having attended college to be an art teacher. I’ve been designing digitally since 2006 and I started seriously designing scrapbook supplies in 2010.

favorite-character

TINKERBELL!

design-inspiration

Anywhere and everywhere… A color combination, a pattern, a song, a single photograph.  The list goes on and on.

love-Disney

I have loved Disney since I was a little girl… One of the first places I really remember going with my parents was Disneyland and the first movie I ever saw in a theater was Sleeping Beauty. My love of Disney was rekindled in college when I took a class on animation and I was hooked. I took my boyfriend (now my husband…) to see Lady & the Tramp when it was playing at the local theater. He had a great appreciation for it because he saw first hand how my effort, skill and artistry goes into creating animation.  A few years later I took him to see Beauty & the Beast and now I had him hooked.

enjoy-the-most

I enjoy the challenge of creating… to have an idea in my head and find a way to make it come to life…
