Dragon's Lair Designs - New Kit - Francheska

Hello All and welcome back to my crafty blog.

It has been a while since I blogged last and a lot has happened since. Not the  least of which was the death of my lovely mother-in-law Jane. Althought we knew that the day would come, we were not prepared for the sense of loss and the grief. It takes time to find a way back to normality and to get on with things again and I am grateful for the crafty friends and colleagues who have been so patient  and supportive during this time.

It is nice to get back to blogging with the new kit from Dragon's Lair Designs. The new kit is called Franscheska and it is full of those deep and sumptious colours that reflect Autumn and the changes it brings.

The kit launched a couple of days ago and you can check out the link below to take you to the full Francheska collection at Dragon's Lair.

My DT piece for the launch is a double page layout using the a backing paper  and some of the embellishments from the kit.

I was inspired to do a double page layout from some articles in magazines I read recently. The double page layout has real impact and decided that the backing paper from the kit is so vibrant that all I needed was to add a photo and some of the contrasting embellishments.

I quite like the result, especially how the Francheska backing paper makes the photo pop.  I am looking forward to working with the new kit on my DT projects in the coming month of November. Lots of ways to use the kit not only digitally as above but with traditional papercrafting too.

Check out the link to the Dragon's Lair Designs on-line shop to see the full range and find us on Facebook to take part in the group and challenges.

Thanks stopping by to read and comment on the blog.  All comments are read and appreciated.
