Tranquillity – with Uniquely Creative Tropical Dreams & Sea Blue

Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you a layout I’ve created using papers from the beautiful Tropical Dreams & Sea Blue Uniquely Creative collections. I just love this photo of Merley sitting looking out to sea, it is very peaceful – I hope we can go back there one day.

Products Used: – UCP1776, Sea Blue Paper Pack – UCP-SBCS, Sea blue Cut-a-part Sheet – UCP2021, Paradise Paper x 2 – UCP2028, Ocean Breeze Paper x 2 – UCP2027, Vitamin Sea Paper, UCE1724, Crystal Rhinestones – Cinnamon Kaisercard

I started by layering up all my base papers, once I decided which ones to use I then cut out a circle from the centre of the top two, for the inner rim of the circle I added a layer of brown card.

I love to fussy cut all my embellishments from the papers, so spend a few evenings fussy cutting all the flowers from the Tropical Dreams papers.

…….and some elements from the Cut-a-part Sheet

You can add and layer as much as you like, I like to make my layouts more 3D, so I add lots of layers to my flowers, I have even doubled up on the Sea Horses. You do not need to do all the layering if you like to store your layouts in an album.

As you can see from this photo, I have layered up this flower three times, getting smaller in size until the centre piece, I also like to shape my elements, I love the overall look.

You can find even more close-ups of my layout over on my Instagram page – The Fussy Cutter

Happy crafting!!!!!

Hi Everyone,

The 19th January 2019 Merly Crop will soon be upon us, so here are the details of the crop and sneak peeks of the layouts that you will be able to create using the kit.

For the kit I have used papers from the beautiful Blessed Kaisercraft collection.

homepage-blessed

Also supplied in the kit are 8 meters of pink DMC thread, 4 x Kaiser card in black, pink & white, black Rhinestones and detailed instructions with coloured photo’s for you to follow, so you can create the three layouts that I have designed, at your own pace.

Below are some sneak peeks of the first layout which I’ve called “So Very Thankful”

49766552_10216921402614773_2655708644259135488_n

For this layout I have used one coloured photo which measures 9.5cm wide x 12cm high. (A black & white photo would also work). I have fussy cut the pretty, bright pink, orange & green flowers from a couple of the papers which add lovely pops of colour to the layout and I have also cut out and layered up some of the colour coordinating frames from another paper, the layout is finished with some hand stitching along the top and bottom of the layout and in between the frames, there is also a little light misting around the flower bunches & some black rhinestones.

Below are some sneak peeks of the second double page layout which I’ve called “Love”

For this double page I have focused on using the black & white papers from the collection with a splash of pink from the card stock,  Kaisermist & stitching. The double page features beautiful fussy cut black & white flowers and foliage. Flourish & butterfly die-cuts, stitching and a splattering of pink candy Kaisermist. I have also embossed some of the pink Kaisercard using the Daisies embossing folder – my two coloured photo’s are matted onto a large cut out card heart which joins the two layouts together. (there will be a template to use at the crop for the heart shape). The photo’s measure 10.5cm wide by 15.5cm high, this includes the white border around them. Black & white photo’s would also work. 

Other items used on the layouts which you may want to bring are a corner punch a colour coordinating ink pad, I have used the Berry mini Kaisercraft ink pad for inking around the edges, the Flamingo ink pad would also work. A needle for sewing (if you want to do it) foam pads and a small pair of scissors as there is some fussy cutting on both layouts. We will however have a selection of ink pads & Foam dots/roll, available to purchase in the on site Merly shop.

March 17th 2018 – Merly Crop Kit layout preview

Hi Everyone,

The March 2018 Merly Crop will soon be upon us so here are the details and sneak peeks of the layouts that you will be able to create using the kit. For this kit I have used papers from the beautiful “Fairy Garden” Kaisercraft collection.

27459720_10154958224125356_7653578358126599317_nAlso supplied in the kit are DMC cotton, green & pink Kaisercard, pearls, a paper heart  template and detailed instructions with coloured photo’s for you to follow, so you can then create the two layouts that I have designed at your own pace.

Below are some sneak peeks of the first layout which I’ve called “I just want pretty things” I have used a coloured photo measuring 9.5cm wide x 11cm high. The layout features beautiful fussy cut flowers & leaves, fairies and butterflies, layered onto a large cut out and stitched heart. (a template will be supplied in the kit for the heart). I have used the gorgeous Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Marker on the cut out flower buds, butterflies and fairy wings. I have also used pink & green Kaisermist from my own stash.

This layout also features beautiful fussy cut flowers, butterflies and birds & Die-Cut flourishes & a little stitching. I have used some crystal lacquer on all of the butterflies and the Wink of Stella Glear Glitter Brush Marker. The pink Kaisermist is from my own stash.

2018-03-03 11.40.13-1Other items used on the layouts which you may want to bring are colour coordinating ink pads, I have used the “Vine” & “Petal Pink” Kaisercraft mini ink pads for inking around the edges, Crystal Lacquer (or similar) The Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Marker,  a needle for sewing (if you want to do it) foam pads and a small pair of scissors as there is a lot of fussy cutting on both layouts. We will however have a selection of ink pads & Foam dots/roll, crystal lacquer & the Wink of Stella Brush Markers available to purchase in the on site Merly shop.

I have also used the WRMK Sew Easy Tool – and a Martha Stewart edge punch, these will be available to use at the crop along with our usual supply of tools including the Big Shot machine & a small selection of other punches.
