Our Story

Merly Impressions is a family run business started by Chrissy Tingey in 2009.

After several years of cardmaking and scrapbooking Chrissy decided, in about 2003, to develop her own range of hand-made Wedding Stationery. In 2009 she discovered Kaisercraft and went on to stock all of their beautiful products; within a few years Merly Impressions was the UK’s leading Kaisercraft specialist.

Not wanting to stay still Chrissy started to organise bi-monthly crops and yearly retreats around 2010, with the aim of creating the perfect crafting weekend with a professional, yet very personal touch from Chrissy and with a very relaxed atmosphere. She designed and created all the kits for these events and they were always booked out and very popular. Chrissy also started selling extra kits online for everyone to enjoy.

Today the business continues to evolve where kits designed by Chrissy are at the forefront of the business now; she creates beautiful scrapbooking layouts featuring floral papers, fussy cutting and stitching. They are very intricate and the fussy cutting detail is second to none. If you enjoy fussy cutting and stitching on your layouts you will love Chrissy’s designs.
