Guest Designer Missy Whidden

Our Guest Designer today, has been one of my good scrappy friends for a long while now, and we even live in connecting states!!

Missy Whidden does some amazing Mixed Media looks on her layouts, using mists, watercoloring and fabulous layers.  And she also incorporates amazing die cuts, using her Silhouette Cameo, so let's find out more about Missy and take a look at what she created with some files from The Cut Shoppe!

Hi there, scrappers!  My name is Missy Whidden, and I’m from Florida.  I started scrapping about eight years ago.  My mother-in-law asked me to help her make a baby book for my husband just before our first daughter was born.  I was instantly hooked!  My style has really changed since using just stickers and deco scissors, although those were very cool back then!  I love incorporating mixed media into my scrapbook pages, especially watercolors.  I love working with die cuts and patterned paper.  Honestly, I’ve never met a scrappy supply I didn’t love.  I currently design for My Mind’s Eye, Chickaniddy Crafts, My Scraps & More and Creative Scrappers.  I love scrapping for the sake of documenting memories, but it’s also therapeutic for me.  The creative aspect of it just makes me so happy!  I love working with photos of my family and friends, and I hope my work somehow inspires others to create something awesome!  Thank so you so much to Ashley and The Cut Shoppe for having me!

How seriously amazing is that background Missy created, using the Arrows with Attitude background cut file!!  I love the pop of White, over the amazing mix of colors in the background and the cute doodling she added between the chevron openings!

Thank you so much for creating for us this month, Missy!!  You can continue to follow Missy's work by visiting her Blog, Little Nugget Creations, and also find all of her Social Media links!

  6. I tried to make a purchase in shop using this code - even though it was within time period, it told me the coupon code had expired:(

    1. Sorry about that! Use code TODAYONLY2 for the same discount.

    2. I tried to use both coupon codes but neither worked and said it was expired. Maybe because I'm on the west coast? I'll have to try to jump on these coupon codes more quickly next time.

  7. WOW Missy! So stunning and fabulous as usual!!
