Dragons Lair Designs September Challenge: Books/Paper

It’s time for the September challenge at Dragons Lair Designs and this time the theme is anything to do with books and/or paper.


Materials used:
Dragons Lair Designs – Our Family Papers
Joy! Crafts Die – Vintage Flourishes
Lacy Sunshine – Lizabeth Summer in the Park
printer card
X-Press It! card
Copic pens
white A5 card blank

I have used two of the papers to made the background paper and cut out the fame and flowers separately.

The image is coloured with Copics and mounted behind the cut out frame before sticking to the card front.

The flowers have been cut out twice in different sizes and the duplicate images have had some petals removed before being decoupaged onto the base image. The sprig is cut with the die from pearlised paper.

So why not pop over to the Dragons Lair Designs Challenge Blog and join in with our challenge to make a creation on the theme of “Books/Paper” this month.  There’s a prize of a voucher to spend in the Dragons Lair Designs store for a winner who’ll be chosen by a random number generator.

You do not have to use a Dragons Lair Design to enter but it would be lovely if you did. There are lots of goodies to discover at the store to get you going. Here are some useful links for you.

We’d love to have you join us in our Fan Group and post up some pictures of any creations you make using any DLD items.

Thanks for popping in. Take care.





About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
