January 2014 Crop – Layout Preview

Hi everyone, here are some peeks of the layouts for the Merly Impressions Crop on Saturday 18th January 2014.

The kit uses the gorgeous Kaisercraft Violet Crush collection, which features fabulous shades of purple, violet & pink plus pretty butterflies, frames, flowers and prints.

The titles for the layouts are “Be Wonderful” & “Documented” but you can adapt your layouts and titles to suit your own photos.

The first layout which I have called “Be Wonderful” uses a colour photo measuring 7.5cm wide by 9cm high. A black & white photo would also work with this collection.


The second layout called “Documented” also uses a coloured photo measuring 7.5cm wide by 9cm high, a black & white photo would also work for this layout.


Other items used on the layouts which you will need to bring are a journal pen if you want to add your own journalling, a black ink pad, foam pads, DST & maybe the red strong DST as there is a lot of sticking to do on one of the layouts. You will also need an edge scrapper tool, a needle for sewing and a small pair of scissors because there is a lot of fussy cutting out on both of the layouts. 😛

We will bring our usual supply of tools (the Cricut Expression machine, Grand Calibur, Big Shot, Martha Stewart punches Tim Holtz Dies etc) to the crop if people would like to use them to create their own title or cut out other embellishments.
We will post full images, photos and close-ups of the layouts after the crop.

The location of the crop, together with other details, can be found on our Crop Dates page.

There will also be the usual FABULOUS Merly Impressions Shop where you can purchase all the latest Kaisercraft goodies. Merley & Paul will be making a selection of yummy cakes and we will also bring biscuits, chocolates, tea and coffee. Please bring your own lunch.

See you all on January 18th at 10am, we finish at 5pm. The cost of the kit is £12.00 and your seat is £5.00 payable on the day.
