Last Friday my printer died at a very inconvenient moment (don’t they always!). I had been saving for a new one but was not expecting to have to get it quite so soon. After researching and checking out reveiws I finally settled on an A3 duplex one. My thinking was that I might get back into scrapbooking using the wonderful digi kits that are out there, not least Dragons Lair Designs. Now the wise amongst you will realise that A3 is not quite 12 inches but a true 12 x 12 printer is a little out of my league and after trimming down there is only a few mm difference.
So having got my new toy home I had to check it out and this is what I came up with, just in time for the Dragons Lair Monthly Challenge on the Facebook Page.
Dragons Lair Designs – Floral Glory (free download from Facebook Page)
Aurora Wings – Wisteria Sprite
X-Press It card
purple 12×12 card
A3 printer card
The page is made up with various elements from the Floral Glory kit and then the photographs just dropped in. I used Serif Craft Artist to construct the design. I am not really at home with digital scrapbooking and as a stamper like to play with ink and pens and things which is why the little sprite had to appear!
The photographs are of the beautiful ancient wistera at Barrington Court which is owned by the National Trust is is not far from us. We like to go and wander around on days off and each season has some new delights to reveal. We have yet to visit this year to check on the wisteria but judgeing from all the ones around us it is going to be even more glorious than last year.
Thank you for dropping in. Don’t forget the blog hop at Dragons Lair is still going until the 19th so you have time to hop around and pick up all the freebies on offer at each stop. While you are at it why not visit the Dragons Lair Designs shop and see all the other goodies they have.
