Mae’n Fyw! – He Lives!

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.

Last week, Janette Padley, the designer at Dragons Lair Designs, started a weekly “Sunday Showcase” over on the Dragons Lair Designs Inspiration Blog.

It is a chance for everybody to show us items they’ve made using Dragons Lair Designs digital downloads, whether digital, hybrid, or paper based. Usually it’s the Design Team members who’s work is seen on the blog, but by linking up your creations anybody can be a part of the Sunday Showcase – and even better, at the end of the week, somebody get’s chosen by random number generator to receive an item from the DLD store- so even more reason to come and show us your DLD makes.

It’s also a chance to get a DLD FREEBIE – because Janette is putting in a link to a Dragons Lair Designs freebie in each Sunday Showcase post. And of course these could be used to join in the showcase linkup if you don’t already have something DLD in your digital library.


As Sunday, when the latest Sunday Showcase post was made, was Easter Sunday, I thought I’d try doing something different to a scrapbook layout, and do an Easter themed layout.

Radient_Day01b“Mae’n Fyw!” is Welsh for “He Lives!”


Stamping Dragon Designs Item:


  • My Craft Studio Software
  • IrfanView Software


I took all the backgrounds from the freebie collection into My Craft Studio Elite to start with.  Then I started looking in the digital punch facility area of the software for shapes and items I wanted to incorporate into my creation.

I made more than one copy of some of the backgrounds and re-sized before digitally punching out some of the shapes, sometimes keeping the inner and sometimes the outer, until I had everything I wanted for my layout.

After I had everything sized and positioned as I wanted I saved the layout.  And finaly I cropped it a bit, resized for uploading and watermarked in IrfanView.


Don’t forget that there’s a discount in the store for a couple of weeks on this new collection, and if you choose to buy the whole collection you’ll get an extra item that can’t be bought individually.


And that is it from me for today. I hope my little creations will inspire you to visit the Dragons Lair Designs store and have a play with some of the digital downloads available to buy yourself.

Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.)
