MMT_Mags_Spotlight

MMT_DFBanner_Intro

I’m Maggie / Mags / MagsGraphics from Ohio.  I’m a former 1st Grade Teacher -turned- At Home Mom and Digital Product Designer for MagsGraphics, Gingerscraps, Scraps-N-Pieces, and MyMemories.  I’ve been married to my college sweetheart for 20 years, and we’ve got two sons:  a 10th grader and 7th grader!  I’m a BIG NERD – I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Harry Potter, Walking Dead, and other geektastic things!

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. How would you describe your design style?
Since I was a paper scrapper for over 20 years (I started when I was 15!), my designs are definitely reminiscent of paper-pieced materials.  I try to make my layouts look as “paper-like” as possible.

Q.  What is your favorite part of the design process?
My favorite part of the design process is making the kit previews; then I can see how it all comes together, and there is a tremendous sense of accomplishment of completing a new collection.

Q. Who is your favorite Disney character?
My favorite characters are all of the villains!  Maleficent is a Queen who can turn into a DRAGON – how neat of a trick is that?!  Plus, the villains are much more interesting… Ursula, Captain Hook, The Evil Queen – Fantastic!

Q. What’s your favorite Disney movie?
My favorite Disney movies are The Little Mermaid and Finding NemoThe Little Mermaid for the music, and Nemo for the witty one-liners.

MMT_DFBanner_Quick

Tea or Coffee?  UNsweetened, Iced Tea, NO Lemon
Single or Multi-Photo? MULTI!  I love to cram as many photos as I can on a layout!
Sun or Snow? SNOW!  I LOVE Snow!
Books or Movies? the BOOKS are always better… But I love a good movie too.
Skirts or Jeans? My favorite thing to wear is jeans and fleece!

3 days until “A Magical Fairy-Tale” | Designer Reveal – Melidy Designs

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!


MMT_Melidydesigns2_Spotlight

MMT_DFBanner_Intro

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!

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

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!

MMT_DFBanner_Quicke

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.

4 days until “A Magical Fairy-Tale” | Designer Reveal – Designs by Romajo

Only 4 days until A Magical Fairy-Tale!! Today we are welcoming back Marieke of Designs by Romajo, so lets get to know Marieke a little better… and make sure you read all the way to the end for an exclusive coupon and to see the sneak peek of the adorable freebie she’ll have for you when the tour departs on May 1st!


MMT_DesignsbyRomajo_Spotlight

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.

MMT_DFBanner_Quick

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. 🙂
