The Merly Impressions November Crop is nearly upon us so we thought we would let everyone know about the kit our croppers will be using on Saturday 19th November.
The kit for the November crop is loosely themed on “Me” (or yourself), so please try and bring photos of yourself, either on your own or with other people will be fine.
There will also be an optional name badge challenge – we are a fairly new crop so we thought this would be a good way to get to know everyone and have a bit of fun as well. The badge can be made at home beforehand or on the day. There will be a fabulous prize for the best one as voted by all of us on the day.
The kit is based on this months Kaisercraft collection called Madame Boutique. This collection features vintage florals and dress patterns in shades of mustard, chocolate and turquoise. The Kit will include five papers, Bakers Twine, two sheets of bazzill, Chocolate Pearls and the brand new Botanical texture stamp plus detailed intructions.
The first layout, that we’ve called “Me”, includes one photo measuring 8.5cm wide by 10cm high preferably featuring shades of mustard, chocolate and/or turquoise. A sepia tone or vintage photo would also work well.
The second layout, that we’ve called “Daughters”, includes one photo measuring 13cm wide by 9cm high preferably featuring shades of mustard, chocolate and/or turquoise. A sepia tone or vintage photos would also work well.
You are obviously free to alter the title (and therefore the theme) of the layouts. We will bring along some tools we’ve used on the layout (such as the border punch and a Sizzlet Alphabet Die set) although you will also need to bring your own black ink pad and a small pair of scissors (because there is some delicate cutting out on both layouts).
The kit will cost £10 on the day but is entirely optional. The location of the crop, together with other details, can be found on our Crop Dates page.
