Meet this week's Featured Designer! It's Maggie Buckley from *MagsGraphics*!!


Good morning and HAPPY MONDAY!  It's time for another FUN Featured Designer here at MyMemories!  This week I am super excited to introduce you to Maggie Buckley from MagsGraphics!  Maggie is a favorite at MyMemories and I got a chance to meet Maggie in person last weekend at the Ohio Workshop!  She has her WHOLE SHOP on sale this week - just use 
PROMO CODE: AwesomeMags40 to save 40% on ALL the goodies in her shop!! 
Here are some fun things that Maggie would like you to know about her:


 Hey Scrappers!  My name is Maggie Buckley, and I design under "MagsGraphics."  Most people online call me "Mags," but I also answer to "Maggie-Is-Awesome," "Darth Magius," or "Magius Malfoy."  (Can you tell I'm a total Star Wars and Harry Potter geek?).  I'm a former 1st grade teacher turned stay-home-Mom of two boys, a life-long scrapbooker (I've been scrapbooking in some form or another since I was 15 years old... I'm 40 now!), and I'm wildly sarcastic.  *wink*
    My sons have played all kinds of sports.  Between them, we've covered football, basketball, baseball, gymnastics, karate, fencing, tennis, laser tag (Hey! I think it's a sport!), golf, swimming, and soccer!  So I've created many, MANY sports-themed kits... including sports we haven't yet tried (lacrosse or ice hockey).  My husband and I have been fortunate to travel to some fun places... which led to the creation of several beach kits, a Napa Valley wine tasting kit, and an Alaskan Cruise kit!  I love scrapbooking every moment of our lives, and I LOVE it when you find a kit I've created that you can use for your everyday scrapping moments too!
Wanna know more?  Here are 10 fun facts about meeeeeeeeee!
  1. I've been married for 17 years to my sweetie, David.  Technically, I picked him up in the Men's Dept. at our local JCPenney...we both worked there during the summers of college!
  2. I can sing like the munchkins of the Wizard of Oz... and even won a radio contest doing it.
  3. I have a scar on the bottom of my chin-- from breakdancing into the kitchen floor!  Apparently, "The Worm" is something I can't do after all...
  4. My all-time favorite show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer... and I have a 10 foot long shelf of action figures from the series in my Craft Cave (a fancy term for a room in our basement).
  5. I once rapped my entire campaign speech for high school student council... to 500 students.  But I lost.
  6. My favorite Star Wars characters are Boba Fett, Kit Fisto, and General Grevious. 
  7. If I was sorted into a House at Hogwarts, they'd have to call me "SlytherClaw"... because I'm crafty (Slytherin), AND smart (Ravenclaw).
  8. My favorite beverages are hazelnut-flavored coffee and UNsweetenened iced tea.
  9. I danced for my high school and college dance teams.  The little drill team gals in my "Marching Band" scrap kit are based on my dance team outfits.
  10. Being able to design scrap kits full time is the coolest job in the world.  I feel so blessed that the customers at MyMemories have received my designs so well.  THANK YOU!!

My favorite is Marching Band. I have so many photos of my daughter in Color Guard and it's next to impossible to find any kits that have anything for Color Guard... until this kit! Hooray!!! Thanks Mags!

I love gone fishing since I live with 3 fishermen and I don't have a lot of fishing kits for the pics we take out on the water. Love all your kits though...thanks for the chance to win. Happy Canada Day from Ottawa!

I've always loved your kits and now I love YOU! Thanks so much for sharing and congratulations on being designer of the month at MMS. I really like Awesome Sauce, Yard Sale, and My World. Thanks for this chance to win some of your gorgeous work.

Deb said...

I like your Gone Fishing Kit. Thanks for the chance to win it!

Sonya said...

Favorites are so hard to pin down. I have several kits already and thought I was familiar with everything...I was wrong. Came across "My World" and "Weekend Away." Love both of those! And, man...you never know what you're going to find at Penney's! :-)

Patricia Minor said...

All your kits are awesome but my family loves Fishing and the outdoors so I would have to go with the "Gone Fishing Combo" and "Nature Adventurer".Congrats on being the Featured Designer.

I didn't even know about this website or blog until *My Devotional Thoughts* blog sent me here.
I have enjoyed looking around the website and enjoyed reading about Maggie Buckley, one of your designers.
I'm not a scrapbook-er -- my daughter is more into doing that sort of thing -- but I do like to do calendars with online graphics, etc. So perhaps, I might do more online stuff than in-hand things.
The MyMemories Suite might be more 'up my alley'.

I like so many of Mags' kits. My faves are Sunshine Beach, Kids in the Kitchen and Water Polo.

KellyC said...

I love the Marching Band Kit and the Marching Band Word Art. With 3 kids in band and one about to be drum major next year I have so many pictures to scrap! Would love to explore more of Mag's Kits!

Melanie said...

I love so many of her kits. Three I'm still trying to decide on are: Birthday Balloons, Crayon Kids Combo, and Life Is a Game kits. But I have had the Gingerbread Christmas bundle in my wishlist for a long time...still can't decide! LOL

Linda said...

KapiColors said...

ShariRBass said...

Chinese Take-Out does it for me :) Thanks for the chance!

Marcia Lee said...

I love My Memories Suite. I have tried doing scrapbook pages in the past, & I just don't like them. But with My Memories Suite, the templates, custom colors & all the gradient images, I think even I could get a digital page that I would enjoy. Thanks for the video tutorial.

Karen Wilson said...

Oh, this is a tough one - hard to choose!! I do love the "My Girl" Bundle pack. All your kits are great!
