Magical Minis

Each month one of my favorite things to do as a digital designer, is to take part in the Mousescrappers Design Challenge.  Designers are given a theme or color palette.  From that we design a mini kit.  These mini kits are then bundled together to be sold as a Mega kit at the Mousescrappers store.  

These mini kits are just so much fun.  I was so sad to see that the first three mega kits are no longer available in the Mousescrapper store.  So, in order still make them available to you, I've placed them for sale at my Scrapable store.

The first kit is Magical Mini 1-
 Great for all your circus, and flying elephant layouts.

Magical Mini 1

The second kit is Magical Mini 2
This kit will make scrapping your Monster layouts a real breeze.

 The third kit is a template (my very first).
It includes both .psd and .png files.
Magical Mini Template 

For great savings, I created this Magical Mini Bundle.
It includes all 3 of the mini kit's posted above
Magical Mini Bundle
This free magical mini bonus kit
(only available as part of the bundle)

The Bundle is a great savings
Separately the kits would sell for $5.97
but as a bundle you can purchase them for $3.50 
and get the bonus kit FREE.

Here are a few layouts by my great CT and the Scrapable CT


 And here is one that I did using the template
