January 21st 2017 – Merly Crop Kit Layout Preview

Happy New Year everyone!!

The 1st Merly Impressions Crop of 2017 is on January 21st, so here are the details and some sneak peeks of the layouts that you will be able to create using the crop kit. The kit will also be available to purchase online the day after the crop for anyone who can not attend the crop. For this kit I have used papers from the beautiful “Ubud Dreams” Kaisercraft collection.

Also supplied in the kit are coordinating pearls, DMC cotton, Kaisercard, a random selection of Ubud Dreams collectables and detailed instructions with coloured photo’s for you to follow and create the two layouts.

Below are some sneak peeks of the first layout, which I’ve called “Life is better when your’re laughing” it uses one coloured photo measuring about 9cm wide x 11cm high.

A needle for sewing, 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. Tools & Adhesives

I have also used the Martha Stewart punch around the page set Vintage Doily. We will bring this and 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. I have also used the Kaisercraft Decorative Die – Fern Leaf, this will also be supplied at the crop and we will have some to purchase in the shop.

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 and where you can also post your finished layouts.

There will also be the usual FABULOUS Merly Impressions Shop where you can purchase all the latest Kaisercraft goodies, including the new January releases and all our other Kaisercraft products.

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 and your usual supply of tools.

See you all on Saturday 21st January 2017 at 10am (not before as we will be busy getting ready) until 4pm. The cost for the day & kit is £22.50, payable on the day.
