Hi everyone, here are some peeks of the layouts for the Merly Impressions Crop on Saturday 21st September 2013.
The kit uses the gorgeous Curiosity Kaisercraft collection which features colourful and quirky elements with an antique feel. The collection also includes bold prints, rustic colouring and retro botanicals.
The title’s for the layouts are “Friendship” & “Be You” but you can adapt your layouts and titles to suit your own photos.
The first layout, which I have called “Friendship”, uses one coloured photo measuring 18cm wide by about 12.5cm high. I have actually cut the photo into three sections, so you could also use three separate photos that compliment each other. The colours in this layout are mainly orange, green, red and cream.
The second layout, which I have called “Be You”, uses one photo measuring about 8cm wide by 11.5cm high. I have again used a coloured photo. The colours in this layout are mainly Black, Red, Orange and a splash of Green.
You are obviously free to alter the titles (and therefore the theme) of the layouts and you can also add journalling. I have used the Sew Easy tool which will be available to use on the day. We will also bring our usual supply of tools (the Cricut Expression machine, Grand Calibur, Big Shot, etc) to the crop if people would like to use them to create their own title or cut out other embellishments. Other items used on the layouts which you will need to bring are a sewing needle if you want to do the sewing, an Edge Scraper Tool (paper distresser) and a pokey tool. We will have an Edge Scraper Tool available to purchase on the day if you don’t have one. You will also need to bring a small pair of scissors because there is some fussy cutting out on both of the layouts.
We will post full images and close-ups of the layouts after the crop.
The kit will cost £11 on the day but is entirely optional and your seat is £5.00. 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 and some of Merley’s homemade cakes plus choccies, biscuits, tea and coffee on the day. Please bring your own lunch.
See you all very soon.
