Layouts & Photos from September Crop

Many thanks to the scrappers who made our September crop so much fun. We hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as we did.

The kit for September was based on the Miss Match collection from Kaisercraft and included instructions and stash to make two layouts that we called “Memory” and “Picture Perfect” although some scrappers came up with their own interpretations of the layouts.

We hope to see you all again for our next crop on the 17th of November 2012.

September Crop – Layout Preview

The Merly Impressions September Crop is nearly upon us so we thought we would let everyone know about the kit our croppers will be using on Saturday 15th September.

The kit uses Kaisercraft’s collection called Miss Match which features flowers, polaroid pictures and even crossword puzzles in very versatile colours including coral, green and marine blue. The kit includes a total of eight sheets of printed paper, two sheets of cardstock, Lemon Pearls, Miss Match Polaroids & some cotton and twine.

The theme for the two layouts is ‘Picture Perfect’ & ‘Memory’ but you can adapt your layouts to suit your photo’s.

The first layout which we have called ‘Picture Perfect’ uses one photo measuring 9cm wide by 9cm high. I have used a sepia photo but you could use a black & white photo or coloured photo. The colours in this layout are mainly green, blue, black & cream.

The second layout which we have called ‘Memory’ uses one photo measuring 9cm wide by 9cm high. I have used a coloured photo, the colours in this layout are mainly green, cream, red & orange.

You are obviously free to alter the title (and therefore the theme) of the layouts and you can also add journalling.  I have also used a punch and the Sew Easy tool which will be available to use on the day. We will also bring our usual supply of tools, the Cricut Expression machine, Grand Calibur and Big Shot to the crop if people would like to use it to create their own title or cut out other embellishments. Other items used on the layouts which you may need to bring are Crystal Lacquer, a journal pen and an Edge Scraper Tool and a Brown ink pad. We will also have ink pads and Crystal Lacquer available to purchase on the day if you don’t have them. You will also need to bring a small pair of scissors because there is a little delicate cutting out on one of the layouts.

We will post full images and close-ups of the layouts after the September crop.

The kit will cost £10 on the day but is entirely optional and your seat is £5.00. The location of the crop, together with other details, can be found on our Crop Dates page.

There will also be the usual FABULOUS Merly Shop and we will supply gorgeous cakes, muffins, choccies and biscuits, tea & coffee. Please bring your own lunch.

See you all next week,
Chrissy & Paul. xXx
