Merly Impressions July 2013 Challenge

Hello and welcome back to the July edition of our monthly Scrapbooking challenge!

I am really pleased to let you know that from this month the DT will play along and will give you tons of inspiration on how to interpret this challenge! And this month the challenge is…


What better than to celebrate this wonderful month of July but to scrap about the summer! You can scrap about your summer holidays or what you love about this season – you can talk about just about anything as long as it fits under this theme! And here is what our wonderful DT has done with the theme:


SweetThere is nothing that screams Summer more to me than picnics, and being a responsible Grandma, there was no chocolate, just cherries!! Oh OK, we did have an ice cream later in the day :0) I used the Blast Off collection, perfect for a bright and happy layout. I used some of the Collectables as sub headings…cool eh? The title was cut on the Silhouette and I have to say the Kaisercraft card is a dream to use on a die cutting machine, digital or otherwise.


Summer layout 01Hi! Here is my take on the Summer Challenge! I wanted to document our family day out at Conkers in Derbyshire and especially the picnic as food always plays an important role on our little trips. I created my layout using the lovely collection True Romance. It has a real feeling of summer with it! My journaling is in Finnish, it tells about a tuna sandwich.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHello! Here is my entry for the summer challenge! I used the gorgeous line On this day from Kaisercraft. Lots of swirls, layers and embossing powder. The journaling is in dutch, but its a bit about Mister Wilson and how he loves the summertime =)


We can’t wait to everyone’s super Summer Time layouts !

Please add your creation to the gallery below before the challenge closes at 1:00pm on 12th August 2013. 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!
