May – Merly Impressions Crop.

Hi Everyone,

So for this crop it was a little bit different, as I was really busy with organising the retreat, I decided not to design a kit as I just didn’t have time. So went with a sketch challenge or bring your own craft to do. So here is the sketch I drew.

Here is my layout I created from my sketch. It just had to be pink & black, loved doing this and not having to stick to a budget or certain products.

I will use the left over paper pieces in another project as there was a lot of waste by doing it this way.

The papers were mostly from the “Fly Free” Kaisercraft collection, two papers from “A Touch of gold” & “XO” and one from “Boho Dreams“.

Happy scrapping,

September Crop Name Place Cards

I really enjoyed making these name place cards for the September Merly Crop and had a lot of fun with the Pink Kaisermist, my table top looks kinda cool now it is covered in pink spots. Here is a close up of the finished Name Place Card.


The Butterflies were stamped onto the pink reverse side of P1892 Partner paper from the beautiful “Fly Free” Kaisercraft collection, for the centre section I  used the Dictionary Meanings Kaisercraft Clear Stamp – love this stamp. Some Kaisercraft black Rhinestones finished off the cards.
