Merly Impressions June 2014 Challenge

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

This month we are keen to learn a little more about you – we want to learn about where you scrap. So this month the theme of the challenge is:

Scrap your Crafting Space

Your layout should describe and/or show the space in which you craft. Your space can be quirky, colourful, untidy, organised or compact – we really don’t mind – as long as it features prominently in your layout.

We’ve decided to keep this challenge open a little longer than usual – the final date for entries is the 2nd of August 2014.

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

Hi there,

It’s Pam here kicking off the Merly June Challenge. This month we’re asking you to scrap your scrap space. No matter how big or how small, how modest or how sophisticated your scrap space is, we want to see it!

My scrap space is in my open plan kitchen/dining/family room. I have my scrappy stash stored along one wall of the family room end, and I actually scrap on the dining table in the middle of the room….and on the island in the middle of the kitchen end! I am a very messy scrapper, and end up with stuff all over the room when I’m working on a layout.

And that’s what this layout is all about!


As you can see, chaos reigns when I scrap – it’s one of the reasons I don’t go to crops – I don’t think other scrappers should have to put up with my mess!


Although I’m lucky to have this space, the downside is that I have to clear everything way in order to cook, or eat meals! Or maybe that’s a good thing!


This is a really simple layout using the Kaleidescope range from Kaisercrafts.

This mixed media effect paper was used for the the background, and only required the addition of some corrugated card, some stamped arrows, and some paper and journalling strips. Simple!

We can’t wait to see your scrappy space-and you could win a voucher to spend at the fabulous Merly shop!


Please add your creation to the gallery below before the challenge closes at 1:00pm on 2rd August 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!
