September 2014 Crop – Layout Preview

Hi everyone,

Here are the sneak peeks and details of the layouts for the Merly Impressions Crop on Saturday 13th September 2014.

The kit uses the lovely Kaisercraft collection “Paradiso” that features shades of oranges and images of tropical birds & flowers. Also in the kit which I have used are some of the coordinating “Getaway Captured Moments cards 3 x 4”. There is a little stamping involved and sewing, which is optional, the stamp I have used is the “CS155 Edges Stamp”. Anyone who attended the Retreat and had the Full Monty or BTP option will have this stamp, so please bring it along to use, otherwise there will be a stamp to use at the crop if you don’t have it as this is not included in the kit.

The first layout which I’ve called “Today Was″ uses two coloured photo’s measuring 9.5cm wide x 12.5cm high the other 9.5cm wide x 9.5cm high.


The second layout which I’ve called “Explore” uses one coloured photo measuring 9cm wide by 13cm high.


There will be a few of the Captured Moments cards left over & one paper, so I have included a Pocket Page in the kit for you to make up a third Project Life style layout if you want to (so maybe bring a selection of other photos).

Other items used on the layouts which you will need to bring are a journal pen, a brown & black ink pad, foam pads. You will also need an edge scrapper tool, 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. 😛

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 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 and we will also bring biscuits, chocolates, tea and coffee. Please bring your own lunch.

See you all on September 13th 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
