Hold on to your wallets ladies, they just might be getting a little bit lighter! Kelly has left for Disneyworld today for an amazing trip with her 3 girls. Well, the minute Kelly left out the door, those crazy princesses Aurora and Belle came in and took over the store. First they wanted to give away everything for free, but I don't think Kelly would have liked that too much. So instead, everything is on sale for 50% off (except bundles). Yup, that all the kits, add-ons, page starters, alphas, paper stacks, date stamps, word art, pixie dust, quick pages and embellishments.

Kelly's store is loaded with tons of fabulous Disney inspired kit. Have you browsed around lately? There is so much to choose from. Right now there are 15 add-ons, 9 alphas, 10 date stamps, 19 embellishments, 69 kits, 48 page starters and paper stacks, 12 quick pages and 65 word art. Yes, that's a LOT, I know. Don't worry, the sale goes on for a little more than a week so you have plenty of time to look around, check your scrapping stash, view the gallery for layout inspiration, and figure out what items you need to add to your shopping cart. The sale starts on Friday August 24th and ends on midnight EST on Sunday September 2nd.

Head on over to Kellybell Designs Store and get ready to go shopping!! If you need some scrapping inspiration for Kelly's kits, you can check out the Kellybell Designs gallery to view some amazing layouts. Here are 2 of my favorite layouts I made with Kelly's kits.

for this Dumbo layout, I used Big Top. I love the bright colors and fun elements!

for this Main Street layout, I used Magical Beginning, Don't Ya Love a Parade, Rainbow Chrome Alpha, Mickey Balloons, Mixed Media vol 1, and Ooh La La Silver Alpha. I love how all these pieces blended together, and it's so bright and vibrant!

If you have been looking for a kit that truly captures the feel of Big Thunder Mountain, your search is over! For the month of July, the Design Challenge had a bit of a twist; instead of working with a color palette, the participants were given a theme - Big Thunder Mountain Railroad - and they did not disappoint! This collab is AMAZING! It is a perfect kit for your Big Thunder Mountain Railroad layouts as well as Frontierland, Woody (Toy Story), and general western/desert layouts. Many of the designers had never worked with a western-type theme before but you would never know that by looking at their submissions. This collab consists of 12 mini kits (7 of which include their own alphas), 2 templates, and 1 alpha, and it is in the MouseScrappers store right now! Can you believe you can get the whole thing for only $3?!?! That's right, $3; this is a deal you don't want to pass up! Check out this amazing preview of all the submissions. Just click the image to go to the MouseScrappers Store to purchase!
Want to see what you can do with this collab? The MouseScrappers Creative Team has created some fabulous layouts using it; they are posted in the DC4 gallery HERE. And here's what I created with this incredible collab!
