Layouts & Photos from April 2015 Crop

Many thanks to the scrappers who attended our April 2015 crop. We hope everyone enjoyed the day and the kit.

The kit for April was based on the Shine Bright collection from Kaisercraft and included instructions and stash to make two layouts (actually a double page layout) that we called “Shine On” and “Beautiful”.



The kit is available on the Merly Impressions shop – it can be found in the Layout Kits section of the website.


It was a very well attended crop and it was good to see so many familiar faces. We hope everyone enjoyed the Merly Impressions shop as well.

Many thanks to Paul for making the fabulous cakes and cookies !

April 2015 Crop – Layout Preview

Hi everyone,

Here are the sneak peeks and details of the layouts for the Merly Impressions Crop on Saturday 18th April 2015 – 10am to 5pm.

The kit uses the lovely Kaisercraft collection Shine Bright which features geometric patterns, clean and simple colours and a splash of sunshine. The first layout, which I’ve called “Shine On” uses two black & white photo’s measuring 9.5cm wide x 12 high. Coloured photo’s would also work.


The second layout which I’ve called “Beautiful” uses one black & white photo measuring 8cm wide x 12cm high.  A coloured photo would also work.


Other items used on the layouts which you will need to bring are a journal pen, black ink pad for inking round the edges & foam pads. You will also need a needle for sewing (if you want to do it) and a small pair of scissors because there is a little fussy cutting on both of the layouts.  I have also used some Crystal Lacquer on some of the embellishments. A similar product will also work and this is optional. We will however have Crystal Lacquer, ink pads & Foam dots/roll available to purchase in the Merly shop.

We will bring our usual supply of tools, including the Sew Easy Tools (which are used on the layouts), Big Shot, Dies, punches, etc, 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 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.

There will also be the usual FABULOUS Merly Impressions Shop where you can purchase all the latest Kaisercraft goodies.  Paul will be making a selection of yummy cakes & Sausage rolls. We will also bring biscuits, chocolates, tea and coffee. Please bring your own lunch.

See you all on 18th April at 10am, we are finishing at 5pm. The cost of the kit is £12.00 and your seat is £5.00 payable on the day.

Chrissy, Paul & Merley xXx
