March Crop kit


Here are the layouts I created for the March Merly Crop. For this kit I used the gorgeous Hanami Garden Kaisercraft Collection which features intricate patterns, cherry blossom images in bold, striking colours.

Here is the first layout.

Here is the second layout featuring mainly the gold tones of the collection, I also added some detail using the gorgeous Kaisercraft Gel pens to the base paper and the embossed black card. Check out the close ups for the detail.

January 2016 Merly Crop Sneak Peeks

The first Merly Crop of 2016 is this Saturday, so here are the sneak Peeks of the layouts that our croppers will be completing. The kit uses some of the papers from the lovely “Treasured Moments” Kaisercraft collection. The complete collection features beautiful butterflies, florals, damask patterns and gilded antiques for a feminine and romantic feel. Also supplied in the kit are black rhinestones, Kaisercard, cotton and two embossed card panels.

Here is a sneak peek of the first layout, which I’ve called “Time is precious” it uses one black & white photo measuring  9cm wide x 12.5cm high. A coloured photo would also work.

We are really looking forward to seeing everyone again, we have a full house, 46 people attending.
