Quoted: Walt by Melidy Designs

Melidy Designs has a new set of Journal cards available to day that feature Walt Quotes.  Walter Elias Disney is a massive inspiration in many people's lives. Not solely because of his animation talents or his ability to create the 'Most Magical Place on Earth' but also because his outlook on life is so inspiring. New in the shop this week are two sets of quote cards, featuring some of Walt's most famous quotes in a subway art style. These quote cards would make great additions to Disneyland and Disney World pages as well as being a great feature for your 'everyday' project life style pages:

Buy if you want both sets Melissa has bundled them together so you can save some pennies!

The classic Disney colors make them them versatile for a wide range of pages, here is what I scrapped using these cards:

Happy Birthday Michelle and a New CREATIVE TEAM!

Today is a VERY special day!  Today I get to announce my 2nd Creative Team with Mad for the Mouse!  I am a HUGE fan of Michelle.  She is such a creative designer and is always so generous with her time and talent.  I am more than ecstatic to be a guest for the next 6 months on her Creative Team.  So lets celebrate!

A Look Back at Marvelous May

I am so extremely proud of my very first mini kit!  I enrolled in the Scrapaneers “So You Want to be a Design Star” class taught by Traci Reed.  Over the last 8 weeks I have completed each assignment starting with figuring out my design style all the way to my one on one review with Designer Traci Reed.  I have learned so much in the last eight weeks; I was even able to participate in the Design Challenge at Mousescrappers for the month of May.  

My Mini Kit- Outer Space-  will be included in the collection at the Mousescrappers store that will release later this week.  I will also be participating in the Mousescrappers blog hop to celebrate this release.  While my kits are a work in progress I am so glad to have a better understanding of what goes into creating the Amazing kits I have in my collection.  I also found that the class really makes me think about my layouts in a different light.  This leads to the next exciting announcement.  A very talented scrapper at MouseScrappers is starting her own professional design adventure and has asked me to be on her Creative Team!!!!  

My goal since the Mousescrappers Marathon has been to complete as many challenges as I could, and really work on improving my layouts.  Apparently she noticed my renewed commitment and liked what she saw.  I am so honored to help this amazing new designer out and create layouts and freebies with her super cute kits!  Look for her 1st Kit release and a blog hop with her later this week!

Finally, one of my favorite Designers had a Creative Team call during iNSD and I felt a little boost of confidence since I was asked to be on a Creative Team.  I applied for a second Creative Team and I was selected!!!!! SO EXCITING!  I have truly been over the moon with excitement and bursting with creativity this month!  Look for a very exciting blog hop at the end of the month to announce that designer!

Check back soon for details on who I will be Creative Team member for and make sure to pick up some fantastic blog hop freebies!!!
