Hi Everyone, It was another fabulous packed crop with 45 people attending. It was an amazing day with lots of chat and crafting. It was lovely catching up with everyone and seeing some new faces. We hope everyone who attended the crop also enjoyed the day and enjoyed making their layouts from the September kit. For the September kit I used the beautiful “Romantique” Kaisercraft collection. Included in the Crop Kit, were detailed instructions and stash to make two layouts. Below you will see the first layout which I created using the kit which I’ve called: We are never far apart .
………and the second layout which I called: Beauty-Believe-Happiness.
The kit is now available to purchase in the Merly Impressions on-line shop – it can be found in the Layout Kits section of the website.
I just want to say a massive thank you!!!! to everyone that attended the crop, which made it such a very special day. We look forward to seeing your finished layouts using my kit over on the Merly Crop Facebook page.
Below are a few photo’s of the day.
You can find details and dates of our future crops here. We look forward to seeing you all in 2018.
Hello everybody! Let me tell you, I have just come back from the Merly Impressions retreat and I am still buzzing with excitement!!! I had so much fun and met some amazing people!
Chrissy and I had a surprise class up our sleeve and had planned a simple and informal card class. I was overwhelmed with the response from the delegates! During the class, everybody was able to create three gorgeous cards following a few tips and guidelines to reproduce my designs but still making them “their own”! I was gobsmacked with the sheer talents present and I too have learned immensely as well as have been inspired by brand new ideas.
So let me show you the cards I designed during this class:
Welcome to the second part of my Product Focus on the new shades of Distress Stains.
In a moment of brightness I thought “Could I write with my stains in order to create my background?” Usually those moments of so called “brightness” turn into disasters but on this occasion I really liked the result so decided to go through with it and use the sheet of 12×12 created for a background.
Well, you know my deep love for the Distress Stains from Ranger and when I received a few new shades in my goodie box I decided to use them for my product focus!
So I hear you say, what is different or new from any other Distress Stains? Well, the colours are A-mazing!!! So bright and cheerful!!! But as you can use them exactly the same way as you use any other shades of stains I decided to show you three different uses for them. I hope you will come along for this three parts Product focus and that you will find some inspiration to use your stains!
Let’s start this part 1. Here I am sharing a very quick and simple yet effective layout. Perfect for a quick scrapping fix!
