November 2014 Crop – Layout Preview

Hi everyone,

Here are the sneak peeks and details of the layouts for the Merly Impressions Crop on Saturday 22nd November 2014.

The kit uses the lovely Kaisercraft collection Rustic Harmony which features a natural colour palette and shades of peach, with beautiful shabby chic flowers and pretty butterflies. The first layout which I’ve called “Just a Smile” uses one coloured photo measuring 9cm wide x about 13cm high. A sepia or black & white photo would also work.


The second layout which I’ve called “Memories” uses one coloured photo measuring 8cm wide by 12cm high. A sepia photo would also work. I have punched out a frame for each photo using a MS punch-around-the-page set on both layouts – your photo’s shouldn’t be any larger than the sizes specified for these frames to fit.


Other items used on the layouts which you will need to bring are a journal pen, a brown/sepia ink pad for inking round edges, foam pads. You will also need a needle for sewing (if you want to do it) and a small pair of scissors because there is a little fussy cutting on both of the layouts. 😛 I have also used some Crystal Lacquer on some of the flower petals. A similar product will also work and this is optional. We will however have Crystal Lacquer & ink pads available to purchase in the Merly shop.

We will bring our usual supply of tools (Grand Calibur, Big Shot, Martha Stewart punches, Sew Easy Tools (which are used on the layouts), 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. For anyone who cannot join us on the day, the kit will be available to purchase on-line after the crop.

The location of the crop, together with other details and future dates 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 & Sausage rolls. We will also bring biscuits, chocolates, mince pies, tea and coffee. Please bring your own lunch.

See you all on November 22nd at 10am, we finish at 5pm. The cost of the kit is £12.00 and your seat is £5.00 payable on the day.

Chrissy, Paul & Merley xXx
