A Springtime Digital Scrapbook Layout

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
From The Spring Of 2004


On the 20th  the Dragons Lair Designs designer, Janette Padley, started a new challenge in the  Dragons Lair Designs Fan Group by giving us all free access to the same mini kit to work with.  The kit she’s given to the Fan Group members who want to take part in this month’s layout challenge is called “Floral Glory”.

Any Fan Group member, no matter if a long time member or just joining during this month, can collect the kit and then upload a photo of something they’ve made with items from the collection (digital, paper, or hybrid crafting based) into the relevant album she’s set up, before the end of the challenge.  Details are all in the FB event she’s set up for the challenge.

Anybody who takes part gets a 20% Discount Voucher to the Dragons Lair Designs online store, and the winner picked by RNG will get her newest kit.

What are you waiting for – come join us in the DLD Fan Group and get involved.

Here’s a layout that I made using the mini kit she gave free for the challenge starting April 20th.

FloralGlory 01


I took the items from the free digital kit “Floral Glory” into My Craft Studio Elite software, together with aphoto I’d taken of a flowering almond tree in bloom in our garden a few years ago.  I then just played around with size, layers, positions, until I was happy with the layout.  I then saved the design, then in IrfanView I cropped the final layout, re-sized it for uploading and added the watermark.

(Thank you for reading this blog post. I hope you like what you’ve seen and read – You should find a box below where you can leave a comment if you feel like it but due to the fact that, like many I’m sure, I’ve had some problems with Spam/advertising posts that are absolutely nothing to do with the content of my blog, I now moderate all comments before they go live. Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.) (Thank you to every body who’s left comments on my previous blog posts. I really do appreciate them all.)

  1. Hi Gwyneth, Finally limping around the Crafting Cafe blog hop! So sorry for my tardy timekeeping but I’ve not been feeling too great!
    I’ve had a little snoop around at what you’ve been up to! I love the cards & your knitting/crochet! I like to do a bit of knitting too!
