Merly Impressions January 2014 Challenge

Hi everybody! It is that time of the month again and we are here to challenge you once more!

At this time, when we are looking forward to the start of a new year, we would like to look back to the year that has just passed. Our challenge this month is to create a layout that details:

My Favourite Moment (or memory) of 2013

Please note that the title (on the layout), must include the year “2013”. The final date for entries is the 2nd of February 2014.

One of our design team has created a layout to provide a little inspiration:

Hello all, it’s Ali with you today to share the best thing to happen to me in 2013…. my grandson!! 🙂


I have been playing with Garage Days a fun, bright, masculine collection 🙂

Kaisercraft have just released some new background stamps and one of them is a fabulous Chevron Stamp that reminded me of a tyre tread. I layered up some Gesso onto my page and pushed the stamp into it to get a fabulous effect…then I covered most of it up! DOH!

You can just about see it here under the teal ink.

There are some gorgeous speciality papers in the 6×6 pad (and12x12s!) I love this one that looks like a metal grating.

Lovely KC stickers and my beloved Tape Stamp, I don’t think I will ever get bored with this set!

Please add your creation to the gallery below before the challenge closes at 1:00pm on 2rd February 2014. We will then choose our favourite layout to win a fantastic prize – a £25.00 voucher to spend on anything you want from the Merly Impressions online store. Wow!

We do hope that you have fun with our challenge and that we bring some inspiration your way. Every month I love to look through all your gorgeous entries but please make sure you follow the challenge rules as we are sad to have on occasion to remove some entries as they didn’t follow those rules. You can find a full list of the Challenge rules on the Monthly Challenge page but we would like to politely remind readers that:

  1. anyone who puts their entry on their own blog must link back to this post ( so that all your visitors can find the gallery below and enjoy all the fabulous layouts being created
  2. each creation entered must be “new” (not previously entered into a Merly Impressions or any other challenge)

It can be difficult for us to view any of your entries linked through Facebook therefore we are kindly asking you if you could please post your photos on the Merly Impressions page as this should make it easier for us all to admire your work. You can also email your entries directly to us at and we will add them and link them through our Photobucket gallery.

Have fun!
