January challenge at Dragons Lair Designs

As always the first Friday of the month sees the start of a new challenge at Dragons Lair Designs. This month the theme is New Beginnings. I have made a couple of really quick wall plaques with some wise words for the start of a new year.

Materials used:
Dragons Lair Designs: Simply Lovable Digital Elements
Dragons Lair Designs: Simply Lovable Digital Papers
mount board
white printer card

I printed out the elements and papers that I wanted to use. Using the size of the two sayings as a base I cut out two pieces of mountboard and covered them with the papers I wanted to use.

The top plaque used up the left over bits of paper from the one underneath.

The heart embellishment is made from one of the elements printed twice and fussy cut before arranging as a pair.

The central topper is attached with foam pads to give some dimension.

The Dragons Lair challenge runs until the end of the  month so you have plenty of time to get an entry in, so why not head on over and join in the fun. You will find inspiration from my team mates over there as well and I am sure they would appreciate a visit to their personal blogs. 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.

Happy new year to you and I pray 2017 will be a good  one for you. Thanks for stopping a while. 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.
