MMT_DFBanner_Intro

My name is Marieke and I live in the Netherlands. I am married and we have 1 daughter who will turn 13 in July. We also have a cat and a dog. We like to go for a walk, go on vacation, to take photos and to dance.

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. What inspires your designs most?
Music is a great inspiration, but I can get inspired by colors, time of the year, a theme, a new set of CU products, things happening in our personal life or in the world.

Q. What is the meaning behind your design name?
As said before, my own name is Ma I am married to Robert and when our daughter Joline was born we were looking for a name for a website. It turned out to be Romajo. Ever since I have used this name in my online live.

Q. Who is your favourite character?
Duffy the Disney Bear!

Q. Which character would you say you are you most like?
Not sure who I am most alike, but my daughter sure is like Stitch. We even named our cat after her favorite character. Sometimes I wish we named him the other option (Duffy), because he can (re)act like a real Stitch and every now and then I had hoped that if we had called him Duffy he would have been a more lazy cat. LOL.

Princess or Pirate? Not into the pirates, although POTC is one of our favorite rides, but I love all the princesses, really don’t have a favorite.
Fab 5 or Princesses? Again, the princesses, but a trip isn’t complete without a meet with at least one of the fab 5.
Stash hoarder or Ruthless deleter? I have to admit, I am a stash hoarder. I have tons and tons of stash. I should go through it, but have been collecting since 2010, so it will be a huge job to get things sorted out and/or deleted… time I prefer to spend on designing and scrapping.
Cats or Dogs? Both! Although I think I can’t live without cats. The big cats (lions, tigers, cheetahs, etc.) are my favorite zoo/safari animals.
Tea or Coffee? Don’t like the smell of coffee, so it’s tea for sure! Right now my favorites are with fresh mint or with grounded ginger and honey. Just add hot water and drink it as hot as possible. YUMMM!

MMT_DesignsbyDede_Spotlight

MMT_DFBanner_Intro

Hi all! I’m DeDe from DesignZ by DeDe and I’m so excited to be a part of MMT and get a chance to share a little magic! I live in Utah with my family – my husband and my 2 kiddos! We love books, movies, Disney, and superheroes in the Smith Family and I love that those are the things that bring us together! I am a freelance graphic designer with a Bachelors Degree in Visual Communications. I’ve been digital scrapbook designing since 2009, when I discovered that I could combine 2 of my favorite things – design and scrapbooking!

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. What is your favorite part of the design process?
I love color! My favorite part of designing is using color and creating a swatch for a kit.
Q. What is your favorite elements to use on your personal layouts?
I love ScatterZ! I love having a little sparkle of something behind photos and other elements – just to add that special extra touch! I guess really my favorite thing to do is stack elements and photos on the page!
Q. What’s the most Magical thing about Disney?
Everything! But I especially love the feeling that you get when you watch a Disney movie or meet a character or visit a park….it adds magic and sparkle to ordinary life. It makes you feel like a kid again and just brings families together.
Q. Most memorable Disney Moment?
So many moments but I guess I will have to say that my favorite is when we surprised our kids with a Disneyland trip. I put a ton of work into the planning of that adventure and it still brings me so much delight to remember that trip! You can read more about that on several blog posts that I made HERE.

6 days until “A Magical Fairy-Tale” | Designer Reveal – Heather Z Scraps

6 days to go until A Magical Fairy-Tale!! Today we are welcoming back Heather of Heather Z Scraps, so lets get to know Heather a little better… and make sure you read all the way to the end to see the sneak peek of the adorable freebie she’ll have for you when the tour departs on May 1st!


MMT_HeatherZ_Spotlight

MMT_DFBanner_Intro

Hi there! I’m Heather Z. of Heather Z. Scraps!  I’m 35 and live in Northern VA (right outside of DC) with my husband of 10 years (John) and our two boys (Jacob, 8 and Henry, 5).  Rounding out our household are our two kitties: Bella and Charlie. I’ve been scrapping (traditional) for about 15 years now, but only started digi-scrapping 4 years ago and started designing 2 years ago!

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. What is your favourite part of the design process? 
Creating alphas! I love alphas and personally think any kit without one is an incomplete kit because alphas are super fun to scrap with!
Q. Where does your color inspiration come from?
99% of the time my color palettes I choose are bright and vibrant colors. I’m just naturally drawn to those types of colors (you’d notice that in my home decor and wardrobe if you knew me personally, lol) .. I have a HUGE board on pinterest (both my personal account and my business account) for color palettes. I just keep collecting them and collecting them until I need a new one at which time I go to that board, pick a few that I like and think will fit my theme and then I narrow down the colors from there. 9 times out of 10 I will use 3 or 4 color palettes from Pinterest to put together one 6 or 7 color color-palette for my own use.
Q. How old were you on your first Disney trip?
13!
Q. Who is your favourite character?
It’s hard for me to choose just one character, but if I HAVE to I’m going to go old school and choose Mickey Mouse. 🙂 My favorite princess is Sleeping Beauty, I think. 🙂

9 days until “A Magical Fairy-Tale” | Designer Reveal – Polka Dot Chicks

Only 9 days until “A Magical Fairy-Tale”. Today we are welcoming back Tammy and Shelby of the Polka Dot Chicks! So lets get to know them a little better and read all the way until the end for a little peek at their beautiful sampler freebie!


MMT_PolkaDotChicks_Spotlight

MMT_DFBanner_Intro

Hi!  My name is Tammy and my daughter Shelby and I are the Polka Dot Chicks!  We have been doing this since 2008 when we started with just a blog and freebies….We live in Kansas City, Missouri and while Shelby lives on her own and works FT and is pursuing her photography career, she still offers ideas and feedback.  I also enjoy reading and cross-stitching and spending time with my kids & family.  My oldest son, 28, Andy is a music teacher in a local middle school; My youngest son, 26, Matt works for a luxury apt. complex and recently moved to Chicago, IL with his husband of 3 years; My youngest, Shelby, is 22 and works also for a luxury apt complex and also has a photography business in Kansas City – ShelbyB Photography.  So my hubby and I are empty nesters and love to travel as well.

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. What is the meaning behind your design name?
Well when we started out in 2008 we were the Queen and the Princess and that was great but we had a few digital stores that really some unethical behaviour to it’s designers and one in particular took advantage of us financially as well and well we got discouraged and almost hung up our hat. We took some time off and decided to not give up and regroup and recharge, we decided to re-brand ourselves.  I love Polka Dots and Shelby suggested ‘Chicks’ as we are CHICKS!  LOL and well it stuck and a success!
Q. What is your favorite part of the design process?
This is going to sound so bizarre, but I love the making of the previews.  To me they are an extension of the kit and like little pages of art.  I find it very relaxing to make previews.

Q. Who is your favorite character?

Mine is Eeyore and Shelby’s used to be Tigger…not sure she has a particular favorite at the moment….

 Q. How many times have you visited a Disney Park?
Twice.  Disneyland when I was 5 and DisneyWorld on my honeymoon with my 2nd husband (1999) AND a Disney Cruise on the Magic in 2012 with Matt and Shelby.  IT was a blast.  I highly recommend the Disney Cruises.

We’re so excited to be kicking off the countdown to the next Magical Mousetery Tour: “A Magical Fairy-Tale”. Today we are welcoming back Natalie of Natalie’s Place Designs! So settle in as we get to know Natalie a little better and see a sneaky peek of her gorgeous freebie…


MMT_NataliesPlaceDesigns_Spotlight

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. How long have you been 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.

Q. Where do you find your design inspiration?
Anywhere and everywhere… A color combination, a pattern, a song, a single photograph.  The list goes on and on.

Q. What about designing do you love 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…

Q. Who is your favorite character?
TINKERBELL!

Q. Why do you 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 theatre 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 theatre. 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.
