The May Merly Crop will soon be upon us, so here are the details and some sneak peeks of the layouts that you will be able to create using the kit. The kit will also be available to purchase online the day after the crop for anyone who can not attend. For this kit I have mostly used papers from the beautiful “High Tea” Kaisercraft collection.
The complete collection features beautifully illustrated roses, teacups and doilies in a soft whitewashed colour palette. Also supplied in the kit are rhinestones, DMC cotton, Kaisercard and detailed instructions with coloured photo’s for you to follow so you can create the two layouts that I have designed.
Below are some sneak peeks of the first layout which I’ve called “Tea Time” it uses three (of the same) coloured photo measuring 6.5 cm wide x 8.5cm high. The layout features fussy cut roses & tea cups on a base of coordinating hexagons.
……….and below are some sneak peeks of the second layout, which I’ve called “Love” it uses one black & white photo measuring 9cm wide x 12 cm high, the tone of the photo compliments the grey/pale blue tones of the papers used on this layout.
Other items used on the layouts which you will need to bring are colour coordinating ink pads, I have used the “Berry” & “Island” Kaisercraft mini ink pads for inking around the edges, Crystal Lacquer (or similar) a needle for sewing, foam pads and a small pair of scissors as there is some fussy cutting on both layouts. 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 a Martha Stewart punch around the page set, Hexagon SU punch, pink/candy Kaisermist, Double Vine Kaisercraft Metal Die & Sew Easy Tool – these will be available to use at the crop along with our usual supply of tools including Big Shot & 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 sneek peeks and details of up and coming events and where you can also post your finished layouts.
At the crop we will also have our usual FABULOUS Merly Impressions Shop where you can purchase all the latest Kaisercraft goodies, including the new May releases and all our other Kaisercraft, Tim Holtz, ScrapFX & Little Birdie goodies.
Paul will be making a selection of yummy cakes and we will also bring biscuits, chocolates & snacks, a selection of tea and coffee. You will need to bring your own lunch and your usual supply of crafting tools.
See you all next Saturday
Hugs, Chrissy, Paul & Merley xXx
