September 23rd 2017 – Merly Crop Kit layout preview

Hi Everyone,

The September 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 “Rose Avenue” & “Mint Wishes” Kaisercraft collections.

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

Below are some sneak peeks of the first layout which I’ve called “Laugh, Love, Live” it uses one coloured photo measuring 8cm wide x 10.7cm high. The main feature of the layout is the pretty Diecut paper and lots of fussy cut flowers & stitching.

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

I have also used the Kaisercraft “Pine Sprig” decorative Die, & “You Make Me smile” die & the WRMK Sew Easy Tool – these will be available to use at the crop along with our usual supply of tools including the Big Shot machine & other Dies.

The location of the crop, together with other details and future dates can be found on our Crop Dates page. We also have a crop/retreat facebook page, where you can see more sneak peeks and details of up and coming events and where you can also post your finished layouts.
