With just a week to go until the September Merly Crop, here are the details and sneak peeks of the layouts that you will be able to create using the crop kit.
The kit uses some of the papers from the lovely “Barber Shoppe” Kaisercraft collection. The complete collection features vintage timepieces, cars and aeroplanes with a classic, dapper charm. Also supplied in the kit are black rhinestones, a flower stamp, Kaisercard, cotton & detailed instructions with photo’s.
The first layout, which I’ve called “Handsome” uses one coloured photo measuring 10cmwide x 12cm high. There is some misting on the layout using the Antique Gold Kaisermist and I have used a gold Kaisercolour Gel glitter pen to add colour to the flowers. The flower stamp used is the SU – “Flower Shop” stamp set, this is from my own personal stash and won’t be included in the kit, however a Kaisercraft Mini flower stamp will be included.
The second layout, which I’ve called “Cosplay” uses three coloured photo’s the first measuring 10cm wide x 13.5cm high, the other two measuring 6.5cm x 6.5cm. There are lots of layers on this layout, some stitching and again I have used a pink Kaisercolour Gel Glitter pen to add colour to the flowers.
Other items used on the layouts which you will need to bring are a pale blue/grey and pink ink pads for inking around edges and a black ink pad for stamping. A needle for sewing, foam pads, a small pair of scissors, corner rounder, crystal lacquer or similar. Glitter pens in pink & gold or pens which coordinate with your choice of photo’s. We will however have a selection of ink pads & Foam dots/roll, glitter pens and crystal lacquer available to purchase in the on site Merly shop. Tools & Adhesives
I have also used the “Grid” Kaisercraft Embossing folder and a Martha Stewart PATP set “Flourish Lace” & Antique Gold Kaisermist, these will all be available to use on the day for our croppers.
We will bring our usual supply of tools, including the Sew Easy Tools (which are also used on the layouts), Big Shot & Dies to the crop if people would like to use them to create their own title or cut out other embellishments.
For anyone who cannot join us on the day, the kit will be available to purchase online the day after the crop. It will contain detailed instructions for you to complete the two layouts.
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.
Paul will be making a selection of yummy cakes and we will also bring biscuits, chocolates, tea and coffee. You will need to bring your own lunch.
See you all on Saturday 17th September 2016 at 10am (not before as we will be busy getting ready) until 5pm. The cost for the day & kit is £20.00, payable on the day.
See you all next Saturday
Hugs, Chrissy, Paul & Merley xXx
