We are THRILLED to have Melissa Bennet with us this month at THE DAILY DIGI! Melissa’s fun designs and great color palettes are a treat.  Check out what she created for this months THE DIGI FILES!


So pretty!  I LOVE the realistic paper flowers and the big red clip! What a fun little mini Valentine’s kit!  You can pick it up (with LOTS of other stuff!) right HERE for just $5.

We can’t wait to show you some of her other work, but first, let’s get to know her a bit better!  I changed up the format a bit for easier reading and linkable information.  Let me know what you think!

I started designing right after I tried digital scrapbooking. I swore I would never go digital as I loved paper scrapping. I used to do web graphics and knew right away I wanted to try my hand at designing kits.


Just a little over 2 years now


I consider myself both, but I don’t set aside enough time to scrap for myself.


I would say anywhere from 30 – 40 hours a week. I really try to treat it as a real job.


My kit Dear Santa is my favorite. I really enjoy creating Christmas kits the most and usually do several each year.



My Christmas kits are my best sellers. I sell them year round.

Now let’s see some of Melissa’s fabulous designs.  Her stores are so full of color and fun that it was hard to choose!


JUST MY TY is a tribute to Melissa’s son.  I love all the bring and fun colors and patterns.   I have so much trouble finding boy kits I like so I am LOVING this!


BALLPARK is such a great sports kit!  I love all the deep rich colors and the worn feel of the pages.


ATOMIC BOUNCE is such a fun and happy girl kit! And that tree and birdie are JUST TOO CUTE!


This gorgeous kit called FALL OUT is so full of the prettiest papers!  The bright colors and fun elements would work for any kind of page!


What a fun kit to scrap away the winter blues?  Brrrrr is just the right mix of chilly colors and cute elements!


Melissa is also known for her huge selection of quick pages! Many of her kits have corresponding quick pages which is great when you are making gift albums or just trying to scrap in a hurry!  I love this one that is made with her DEAR SANTA kit.

And, just to get you inspired, here are some pages I found in the galleries using Melissa’s stuff!


Thank you, Melissa, SO MUCH for being a part of THE DAILY DIGI this month!  We love what you have created and can’t wait to see more of your designs in the future!
