There’s only three days left until the next Magical Mousetery Tour departs, we hope you’re as excited as we are! Today we are welcoming Melissa of Melidy Designs back to the Mousetery Tour. So let’s get to know Melissa a little better! Make sure you read ’till the end for a sneaky peak of her gorgeous submission and a coupon to her store!
Hi all, I’m Melissa of Melidy Designs. I live in the North East of England with my husband and our two dogs – Jak & Sally. I only design part time right now, as both myself and Phill work for the RNLI full time. It’s a UK charity/ public service that saves life at sea. Needless to say it keeps me pretty busy but scrapbooking and designing is what I love doing and what keeps me going! I love being a part of the Mousetery Tour, it’s the perfect fit for me since Disney and memory keeping are two of my biggest passions!
Q. What is the meaning behind your design name?
The name Melidy came about almost 10 years ago when Phill and I were dating, as a silly pet name (my real name is Melissa). I called him Phillidy, so he started calling me Melidy; still does occasionally. I decided quite early on I didn’t just want to use my name as my business name, and I’ve never really had any nicknames or anything, so Melidy Designs was born. Lots of people now call me Melidy, thinking that’s my name and I love it, as well as bringing back many memories, it has a whole new meaning behind it now and I love that!
Q. What about designing do you enjoy the most?
I just love stumbling across a layout in a gallery and seeing my stuff being used. To be a part of someones memories and story telling is THE most amazing thing!
Q. What s your favorite Disney film?
My favourite film of all time is Beauty and the Beast. It captivated me as a child it was romantic, magical and beautiful… plus I spent a lot of time dreaming of owning a library like that – still do!
Q.What is your favorite park?
I love all of them for their own reasons, but nothing beats the magic and wonder of Magic Kingdom. Rounding the corner on Main Street and catching view of the castle gives me goosebumps EVERY TIME!
Tea or Coffee? Green Tea
Single Photo or Multi? Multi, I take so many photos, so the more the better!
Cats or Dogs? Dogs
Books or Movies? love a good movie, but books hold my heart more.
Template or Blank Canvas? Template 100%… Even if I have a page in mind, I create the template first and then make my page from there. That’s how most of the Template Tuesday’s originate – from pages I do for myself.
Here are a few of her amazing kits available for sale in her store:
Melissa also sent over a coupon good for 25% off at her store!
