November 18th 2017 – Merly Crop Kit layout preview

Hi Everyone,

The November Merly Crop will soon be upon us so here are the details and sneak peeks of the layouts that you will be able to create using the kit. For this kit I have used papers from the beautiful “Romantique” Kaisercraft collection.

Also supplied in the kit are DMC cotton, Kaisercard, rhinestones, gauze and detailed instructions with coloured photo’s for you to follow, so you can then create the two layouts that I have designed at your own pace.

home-romantiqueBelow are some sneak peeks of the first layout which I’ve called “We are never far apart” it uses one black & white photo measuring 8.5cm wide x 10.5cm high. The layout features beautiful fussy cut birds, flowers and butterflies with a little gauze tucked in and around the embellishments,  there is also a little bit of stitching and punching and I have used crystal lacquer on some of the fussy cut elements. I have also added some misting using product from my own stash.

For this layout I have focused on the grey/blue colour papers, there is also a tiny hint of pale yellow in some of the butterflies. This layout also features beautiful fussy cut flowers & butterflies & a little stitching.

We will however have a selection of ink pads & Foam dots/roll & the crystal lacquer available to purchase in the on site Merly shop.

I have also used the Kaisercraft “Fleur de lis ” Embossing folder, the WRMK Sew Easy Tool – and the Martha Stewart PATP set “Eyelet Lace”, these will be available to use at the crop along with our usual supply of tools including the Big Shot machine.
