September 21st Merly Crop Layout & kit Sneak Peeks

Hi Everyone,

There is just about a week to go until our September 21st 2019 Merly Crop, 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 Starry Night Kaisercraft collection.


As well as the papers in the kit there are also four sheets of Kaisercard, DMC thread,  rhinestones, a template and detailed instructions with coloured photo’s for you to follow, so you can 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 “You are my starburst”

The layout features (as promised, the starburst pattern from my Morning dew layout) lots of beautiful fussy cut poinsettia’s, coordinating stitching around the starburst. I have also stamped and fussy cut some poinsettia from the matching stamp set, the stamp will be available to use at the crop (or if you want to purchase it, it is now online. My photo measures about 12cm x 12cm. There will be a starburst template in each kit.

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






This layout features lots of beautiful fussy cutting, punching, stitching and layering, there is a lot of height in this layout. My photo measures about 13.5cm wide by about 10.5cm high. The punch will be available to use at the crop along with the Sew Easy Tools.

I will also be bringing some of my latest, Kaisercraft design team creations

Other items used which you may want to bring are 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 Foam dots/roll, available to purchase in the on site Merly shop.

I have also used the WRMK Sew Easy Tool, Martha Stewart petal Edge Punch – , we will however bring these items to the crop for people to use and our other usual supply of tools including the Big Shot machine & a small selection of other punches and dies.


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 sneak peeks of these layouts – and details of up and coming events and where you can also post your finished layouts.

At the crop we will also have our usual FABULOUS Merly Impressions Shop where you can purchase all the latest Kaisercraft goodies, including the new August & September Kaisercraft collections.


Extra kits will also be available to purchase at the crop. Just ask Paul for them. The usual supply of tea, coffee and a selection of biscuits, chocolates, snacks &  cakes will be available throughout the day. You will need to bring your own lunch and your usual supply of crafting tools.


See you all on Saturday 21st September 2019 at 10am (not before 9.55 unless you have been asked to help, as we will be very busy getting ready, please wait outside if you do turn up early) – until 4pm.  The cost for the day & kit is £30.00 payable on the day, we take cash and/or cards.

For anyone who can not attend the crop, the kit will be available to purchase the day after the crop over on the website. The cost for this kit is £20.00

Happy scrapping, hugs,
