May 2018 Merly Crop Kit

Hi Everyone,
What a right royal crop we had, thank you so much to everyone who attended and made the day so special. What a fun day we had of crafting, chatting and eating fabulous cakes and a most enjoyable afternoon cream tea. We hope everyone who attended the crop also enjoyed the day and enjoyed making their layouts from May Kit.

For the kit I used the beautiful “Miss Betty” Kaisercraft collection. Included in the Crop Kit, were detailed instructions and stash to make two layouts and a third bonus layout that you can complete if you like. Below are photos of all three layouts and some instructions to complete the third layout.

Here is the first layout which I called: Forever Friends.

………and the second layout which I called: We Remember Moments.

Here is the third layout and some brief instructions.

3_extra-1800

Cut the green Kaisercard down to 12 x 12 to form your base, then gut the centre leaving about a 4cm edge all around. Cut the PP2479 Thread paper down to 28cm wide, then mat this onto your green base edge. Cut the blue/green coloured rulers from P2480 Patterns paper, add these to the left hand side of your layout, in all different lengths. Mat your photo onto some of the gutted green Kaisercard, mat this onto your layout. I have also cut out the green section from P2484 Handcerchief paper, cut in half and mat top and bottom of your photo, also add a blue coloured ruler. for the title I have used wording from one of the info strips. I have stamped flowers on the rest of the green card, fussy cut them and added them to the layout with some die cut flourishes.

The kit is now available to purchase in the Merly Impressions on-line shop – it can be found in the Layout Kits section of the website.

I just want to say a massive thank you!!!! to everyone that attended our May crop which made it such a very special day. We look forward to seeing your finished layouts using my kit over on the Merly Crop Facebook page.

Below are a few photo’s of the day.
