Koalas and Kangaroos at Christmas …..

Having only arrived in Australia in 2007, all my family and a lot of friends live in both Africa and Europe so I like to send ‘Australian’ Christmas cards.  I combined the AZZA Christmas products and the AZZA Australian stamps recently released to produce the following cards:

Cards by Lyn Holmes, NSW. Australia

This little set of AZZA Ruby stamps I have so enjoyed, there is so much you can do with them.  If you are on our Mail Out list you will have received them in October so together with your November Mail Out you too can make these cards.

Lyn Holmes, NSW. Australia

For the card above I used an AZZA Card, the beautiful AZZA Christmas papers and a sheet of the Silver paper.  I cut one sheet of the Christmas paper and the Silver paper with the AZZA Sewn Squares die.  I then used the Christmas Bauble stamp off the large set of AZZA Christmas stamps and stamped them in various colours.  I know I mentioned the Stamp Plate available from AZZA in Australia and this is how I got the fading shades on the bauble in the middle on the left.  Firstly I stamped the bauble in a lighter shade of blue, re-inked the stamp a few times on one side and kept stamping.  By using the Stamp Plate you are assured of getting the stamp back in the same place.  I then stamped the baubles with the Koala stamp.

I finished off the card with 2 colours of AZZA Cord, AZZA pearls and 3 Resin pellets on the two baubles on the silver paper and the one in the middle on the left-hand side.  Lastly, I chalked the little corner at the top of the card.

Lyn Holmes, NSW.  Australia

For this card I used the AZZA Green card, the AZZA Card Stencil ‘Star’  together with AZZA Seasonal papers and the Australia and Christmas stamps once again.  

Firstly, I stamped the 2 larger kangaroos and the star onto white card using the Stamp Plate.  The star I used the colours of the sun as it is Australia after all!

Always stamp the lighter shades first.  I then added the darker colour ink to the stamp with a brush: 

… and so you build up your stamped image.  Once you are happy with your colours, cut the kangaroos and star out.  I finished off the kangaroo images with a a few dots of gold to blend in with the colours of the card, the star got a few golden pearls.

Next, I placed the card stencil onto the card and only cut out half the star.

 I used a ruler and Gold gel pen to create the border.  I then stamped the Christmas trees using the same method as with the kangaroos.  Being a dark green card, I stamped the light green colour first then added a bit of the darker green for texture.

Once I was happy with the trees, I popped on a few pearls – then stamped the small kangaroo.  Next I stuck the kangaroos and the star down.  I placed 3D foam behind only one kangaroo, so created a bit of texture with the small kangaroo stamped straight onto the card, one ‘cut-out’ kangaroo stuck straight onto the card and the third with 3D foam tape behind it.  The star also has 3D foam behind it.

For the inside of the card I used the stencil with both inks and paper.

And now for the Australian version of the Silent Night Cutting die:

Ros McQueen, WA.  Australia

The card above was created by Ros McQueen, AZZA Consultant in Esperance, WA.  This is Australia on a card and does not even have to be a Christmas card.

Hilary Hamilton, Victoria.  Australia

Hilary created this card using the Wreath cutting die from last year together with the Silent night die and the clouds from our ‘Weather’ theme.  The windmill and tree are not AZZA dies.

Lastly on Christmas cards, a wonderful Christmas tree of ‘creation’ by Sylviane Dournes for you to see using product from both last year and this year.

Sylviane Dournes, Europe

Now on to our Scrapping pages with the new Celestial stencil.  What amazing pages have been uploaded onto the net.

Firstly, here is the link to the AZZA – How to create a page with the Celestial Stencil.

I have to begin with the Christmas colours – a page created by Sabine Kohen-Zeyen.

Sabine has used the Christmas texture stencil and the beautiful little Stamp and die set:  Silent Night.

A double page layout by Fabienne Graulich-Lorge.

Another double page layout by my special friend Christine Houbrechts.  Christine was so good to us at the AZZA Stage de Scrap at Pamyre in France.  She checked in each day to see how we were doing and spent a morning scrapping with us.  Just not enough time to spend together!!

Christine Houbrechts, Europe

Beautiful combination of stamps, paper and pens to finish off the pages.

This page by Scrapons Sur le bassin d’Arcachon is lovely, hiding an extra photo under a little flap:

Scrapons sur le bassin d’Arcachon


Sue Talbot, AZZA Consultant in Castle Hills in New South Wales created this page using the Snowflake embossing folder and the Snowflake cutting dies.

Susan Talbot, NSW.  Australia

The page above was created by Jennie Banks, AZZA Consultant in Queensland, Australia, the page below by Ros McQueen WA, Australia.

…… and a few pages without using the ‘Star’ in the stencil. 

Hilary Hamilton, Victoria.  Australia
Denise Harris, NSW.  Australia

I did say I would write a little more about our trip to La Palmyre in France to attend an AZZA Stage de Scrap.  It was an amazing experience and we hope to take a few Australian Clients to one in the future.  If you are interested in going, please contact your local AZZA Consultant for information.  The venue was beautiful and with about 400 ladies and a few men, we got to meet so many people.  I was excited to meet ladies I have met through highlighting their pages on this blog.

The venue
Hilary, Deb, Anita and Lyn

We represented Australia with these beautiful jackets – I don’t think anyone could miss the Australians!!

The AZZA Creative Team were always on hand to help out.  Each day we had half the day scrapping and half the day on an excursion to a place nearby.  Photographs of the places we went to were what we were given to scrap during the week.

Each year the Stage de Scrap is in a different venue, so we look forward to seeing where the next one will be held.  The Stage de Scrap is a week long, 4 days shared between scrapping and excursions and one day free.  On the free day you can either explore the area or continue to scrap.

On our return we ran our Australian Annual Consultant ‘Get – together’ where we showcased what we had done in Europe.  Unfortunately, I cannot show you the wonderful layouts we did as this stencil will only be released at our Australian Retreats in February next year.

The stencil is a 25cm x 25cm stencil, but we held a competition at the Convention for the ladies to produce a 30 x 30 page with the stencil and the three winners were:

Theresa Dean, AZZA Consultant in Tasmania.

Theresa Dean, Tasmania
Jill Attrill, Vic Australia

Jill Attrill, AZZA Consultant in Victoria, Australia and below, Petra Jaynes, AZZA Consultant in South Australia.

Petra Jaynes, SA – Australia

We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary in Australia so there was lots of fun and laughs.  The two Consultants who have been with AZZA for the full 10 years are both Hilary and I.

… and the party continued.  The girls were dressed beautifully – the theme – a ’10 year old’ birthday party.

Petra (SA), Ros (WA), Theresa (Tassie) and Barb (WA)
Denise (NSW) and Barb (NSW)
Anita, Kay and Rachel – Queensland 
Robyn (Qld) Deb (Tassie) and Rachel our amazing Logistics Lady and QLD Consultant 
Barb (NSW – Dubbo), Amber (NSW – Albion Park) and Lynette (NSW – Woodberry)

Scrapping did get done from time to time ………. above part of the New South Wales team, below part of the Victorian team.

Wendy (Vic -Morwell) and Rebecca (Vic – Keilor Downs)

All the Consultants brought with them one of their favourite pages and the one that caught my eye was a beautiful Heritage page by Theresa Dean from Tassie.  Theresa has created this beautiful page of her Mum using the Toronto stencil, Alize Texture stencil and A4 sketch sheet and Pearls..

Page by Theresa Dean, Tasmania

Enough of fun and games for now, on to a Scrap Kit that may have appeared in our Catalogue that you missed:  AZZA Scrap kit – Unique Moments.

The shape is very similar to the older Paris-Istanbul that was so popular but sadly, was discontinued.

A double-page layout by Deb Byrne, AZZA Team Leader in Tasmania.  On the first page has she used the AZZA Scrap Kit ‘Unique moments’,  on the inside spread she has used the AZZA Scrap kit ‘Nature’.  Deb has used the ‘Add on’ kit AZZA Scarp Plus ‘Nature’ for her decoration.

Deb loves her AZZA Resin pellets – here she has highlighted a circle punched out of one of the photos together with leaves from the Starter kit cutting die.

AZZA, Europe

A lovely, simple layout above. The cutting die used in both these layouts will be available in Australia in January.  It is beautiful and well worth adding to your ‘stock’ as it can be used on any page.  A selection of pages by our very creative AZZA Consultants in Europe.


This one reminds me of Paris-Istanbul stencil
This ‘Retro’ embossing folder will only be available in Australia in January

Lastly, a lovely inter-active page by Valerie Rots, Europe with a Halloween theme.  Valerie has used the AZZA Halloween ‘Window’ die.

Beautiful, and adds so many photos to your page!

Still on the Halloween theme, you may still have some pages to scrap.  I found a few lovely Halloween cards but you could use the same decorations on your pages.

How talented are these ladies.  I do think one NEEDS the Lantern die – it can be used on every occasion. 

Hot off the press as I finish my blog – 2 Christmas cards (can also be used as decoration on the page) by Deb Byrne, AZZA Team Leader in Tasmania.

Deb Byrne, Tasmania

I have had a few enquiries about the ’10th Anniversary’ Retreats that AZZA is holding around the country early next year.  Here are details of a few:

Christmas is around the corner …..

How fast did Christmas arrive!!  The shops are full of decorations, carols are being played, I love this time of year.  I also love the creations I have seen using all the new AZZA Christmas products.

There is so much I want to share with you but I think in this blog I will concentrate on Christmas cards as they need to be sent out soon to arrive in time for Christmas.  (Unless your family live in Africa, if I sent them out now, I think they may arrive in time for next Christmas)!!

The first sample is by Celine Henchoz, a very elegant card.  Celine has used the Snowflakes Embossing folder for her background.  She has used the stamp found in the Christmas Card kit and the AZZA Snowflakes cutting die.  She has finished off the page with AZZA pearls, Marine ribbon and Silver glitter tape.

The next card is by one of my favourite ladies, Sabine Lebrun.  Sabine has used the Christmas Card stencil to create this card together with the Christmas paper and the Window Cutting Die:  Christmas star.

https://shop.azzaworld.com.au/collections/under-50/products/cutting-dies-windows-christmas-star
This card was created using the AZZA Christmas Card stencil, Window cutting die  Christmas papers, Silver Glitter Tape and Pearls.
This card was created by Hilary Hamilton, Victoria.  She has used the AZZA Silent Night Cutting die together with the AZZA Concentric Circles die, Christmas papers, Ribbon and Pearls.

The card above is one of my favourite.   This was made by Carole Pereira Bastianon.  Carole has used the AZZA Christmas paper and the Christmas stamps which I have shown below, together with the Cutting Dies:  Sewn Squares.
https://shop.azzaworld.com.au/collections/under-50/products/copy-of-cutting-dies-scrolls-set.  

She has finished off the page with the lovely AZZA Cord, Glitter tape, a picture from the A4 Sketch sheet and AZZA pearls.

The following collection I found on Facebook, they are beautiful and I am sure many of you will be making a copy of at least one of them.  The cards were created by Ashild Myhren Pegoraro.  

https://www.facebook.com/ashild.pegoraro?fref=ufi&rc=p

Ashild has used the AZZA Circle Cutting dies, the Cutting dies Starter kit 2 for the ones at the top and the Christmas products for the one at the bottom.  For the one on the bottom she has used the Christmas texture stencil, the Christmas Star cutting die mentioned before and the beautiful little Stamp and Die set:  Deer.  For the cards at the top and shown below,  Ashild has combined the Cutting Dies Starter kit 2 and Deer cutting dies and added a little of the AZZA cord.  Note on the card below how she has off-set the cutting of the circle on the white card, something I would not have thought to do but it produces a very attractive card.  She has inked the leaves ever so slightly with blue.

https://shop.azzaworld.com.au/collections/whats-new/products/stamp-and-cutting-die-set-deer-head
https://shop.azzaworld.com.au/collections/under-100/products/cutting-dies-big-shot-starter-kit-2-new-version

The next card Ashild has used the Christmas stamp set:  Christmas Star.  She has used a white marker to decorate the card with snow.  This lovely Burgundy ink pad will be available in Australia in January.  You can see how she has shaded the stamp darker on the one side for a ‘shadow’ effect.  This is easily done with the Stamping Plate.  You ink the side of the stamp a second time in the areas where you want the shadow.  With the Stamping Plate you are assured to get the stamp back in the exact place on the card.

https://shop.azzaworld.com.au/collections/whats-new/products/stamp-and-cutting-die-set-deer-head

The Stamping Plate available from AZZA:

https://shop.azzaworld.com.au/collections/accessories-and-tools/products/stamping-plate

For the card above the new AZZA Burgundy and Pink colours have been used, these will be released in Australia in January.  She has finished off her card with Silver glitter tape,  pearls and cord.  The shapes are created with the AZZA Cutting dies Starter Kit 2 and Snowflakes.  Again the white cut outs have been coloured ever so slightly on the ends with the Burgundy ink.

They just keep getting better and better …….  you can see the Snowflake Embossing stencil and cutting die has been used in the card on the bottom.  The paper has been torn instead of being cut which does give a lovely effect.  The card on the top right has been stamped with the AZZA Silent Night stamp combined with the Snowflake cutting die,  Burgundy ink and AZZA pearls.

https://shop.azzaworld.com.au/collections/whats-new/products/stamp-set-large-silent-night
This card has been created using the new (red) Christmas paper, Gold glitter tape, Snowflakes cut outs and of course the NEW Foil and Foil Stamps that AZZA is now stocking.

Don’t forget the product you purchased last year!  These little cards were made by Celine and Christine using last years Christmas release Christmas Wreath Cutting Die and Christmas stamps.

This card was made with the AZZA Christmas ‘Window’ cutting die released last year
A few more samples of cards made with AZZA products released last year.

And if you want an interactive Christmas card – take a look at this one:https://www.facebook.com/parAZZart/videos/2322700751346358

And so to end, a few “off the page” ideas:

Now I know this is not AZZA, but I found this little bit of information on Pinterest and thought I would share it with you.  If you have the AZZA Cutting Die:  Tags, this is something you can create using the set.

https://shop.azzaworld.com.au/collections/under-50/products/copy-of-cutting-dies-cogs-and-mechanisms-set
Too easy.


Using your tags together with the Starter kit 2, Christmas papers and stamps you can make this lovely card above.

A lovely little ‘Name Tag’ created with the  BEAUTIFUL AZZA Silent Night cutting die released this year – how good would those look on your Christmas table.  You need the new cutting dies: Sewn Concentric Circles  (your plain Circle cutting die will do) and Silent Night and a little AZZA Cord in the colour of your Christmas theme.  Voila!

https://shop.azzaworld.com.au/collections/whats-new/products/cutting-dies-concentric-circles-3cm-13cm
Or you could keep it simple.
Christmas Baubles created with the AZZA Scalloped Concentric Circles and the Christmas Star die I have shown you earlier.  You only use one side of the plastic bauble, the other you can use to make the one below.
Here your Christmas Bauble (actually only half of it)  sits onto a Scalloped circle cut and stamped with a Christmas texture stencil with a few Snowflakes glued on top.

On that note, I’ll leave you to get started.

Happy Scrappin’

Where to begin ….

What a busy couple of months I have had, where to begin to tell you enough but not too much to bore you!

The Directors of AZZA Australia travelled to Belgium to meet with the Folk at AZZA Head Office in Nivelle, the wonderful team at the AZZA warehouse in Tournay then on to the AZZA Stage de Scrap at La Palmyre in France.

AZZA Head Office, Nivelle.  Belgium
Laurence showed us around Head Office and introduced us to the team.

Having spent the morning with Laurence, we travelled down to Tournay to visit the warehouse.  We were like children in a candy store.  The wonderful  Michelle below packs all our orders so we were very happy to finally meet her and all the ‘Behind the Scenes’ staff.

Our time was short and we were whipped back to Brussels where I enjoyed the only meal one should eat when in Belgium:

Mmmmmmm …..  wonderful – Moules-frites

From Belgium we travelled down to Bordeaux and on to La Palmyre where we attended the Stage de Scrap with 400 other Ladies from across Europe.  It was wonderful to meet so many Ladies (and a few gentlemen) – some Ladies I have been chatting to via the internet for years.  You have seen many of their pages which they have shared with Australia: So Scrap, Floscrap and Be Creativa (Below).  It was just so sad that as the schedule was very busy we did not get too much time to spend together just chatting!  (Maybe next time)

The team also met up with Christine Houbrechts who creates such beautiful pages, she managed to spend time with us scrapping, what a wonderful morning.

The products that were showcased at Stage de Scrap were on pre-release so I cannot reveal too much just yet.  They will only be released in Australia in the new year – AZZA Australia will be holding ‘AZZA Experience’ retreats to celebrate AZZA being in Australia for 10 years.  These retreats will be held towards the beginning of next year, if you are interested, please contact your Consultant.  If you do not have a Consultant, go along to our website:  

https://www.azzaworld.com.au

Here you can find a Consultant close to you,  contact the Team Leader in your area or send me an e-mail and I will get the details to you.

Having returned from Europe, we arrived in Brisbane to complete the preparations for the Annual Training Retreat for the Consultants in Australia.  We celebrated our 10th year in operation in Australia!

I will report more on our Retreat and all the little ‘gems’ of information I would like to pass on to you in my next blog, but today I would like to showcase the AZZA Christmas products that are now available in Australia.  With almost 6 weeks to go until Christmas …… we need to get creating.

This month AZZA Australia has 2 Baskets:

Silent Night Basket – $81.40

The Silent night basket consists of a Theme book with a lot of wonderful ideas to inspire your Christmas creations, the beautiful Christmas stamp set, Christmas texture stencil duo, A4 Sketch sheet and figurines.

Star Basket – $64.30

The Star basket includes the AZZA Christmas CARD stencil, the ‘Star’ AZZA Christmas stamp set, a Texture stencil, Christmas paper, A4 sketch sheet and gold and silver glitter tape.  All you need to create your Christmas cards this year.

AZZA has now included the Go Press and Foil sets into their range.  The Christmas dies are beautiful for both cards and pages.  AZZA Australia will not be bringing in the Go Press machine itself, but we have wonderful AZZA  Foil stamps:

AZZA Foil Metal Stamp:  Christmas Star  

The beautiful creations posted by Laurence Chabbey show how these stamps can be used on both cards and a Scrapping page.

The Stencil released for Christmas this year is Celestial.  This stencil is available both in the Studio Kit and as a stencil duo.

AZZA Studio Kit – Celestial

Although at first sight this stencil looks quite ‘busy’, remember you don’t need to use the whole stencil.  It is also not just a Christmas stencil, it can be used though-out the year with many different themes.

The first page I’d like to share with you is created by Christine Houbrechts, who we met in Europe.  It is such an elegant page …

Page by Christine Houbrechts, Europe

Christine Ronsin – AZZA Europe
Francoise Robin:  AZZA Europe

Valerie Martinussen:  AZZA Europe

Then on to pages that do not have a Christmas theme:  Any ‘Stars’ can be highlighted with this stencil.

Claudine Goossens:  AZZA Europe
Holiday Memories:  Sylviane Dournes

A beautiful little ‘Star’ puppy
A page of ‘Dancing Stars’:  Mimiscrap

Below is a page using a single photo with the Celestial stencil used for the decorations.  Lovely chalking to finish off the decorations.

Single photo of a ‘Star’ performing:  Vanessa Bronckart

So as you can see, the stencil is very versatile and can be used throughout the year.

Now to a few ideas for our Christmas card stencil and Christmas products.  These beautiful samples were given to us at AZZA Head Office.

AZZA has a wonderful Christmas Card Kit box set you can purchase to make your cards.  This is great as you get a booklet with samples to guide you too.

Special Order:  Christmas Cards Boxed kit
Ideas for cards that can be made with the Box Kit.

Card using the Go Press and Foil stamps together with other AZZA Christmas products
This card has been stamped our the AZZA Wood sheets
Christmas card using the AZZA Christmas Wreath released last year
Card created using the AZZA ‘Silent Night’ stamp and die set
AZZA Stamp and Cutting Die:  Deer Head

AZZA Stamp and Cutting Die:  Silent Night

AZZA Cutting Die:  Snowflakes

This is one of my favourite:  AZZA cutting die:  Winter Scenes

This Winter Scene when put together does fit into a Christmas Bauble as shown below.

Do get your orders in for Christmas as soon as possible.  New stock arrived from Belgium this week so hopefully Backorders will be fulfilled this week!

Christmas closure dates:

Friday, 14th December will be the last date to place orders for 2018.

Monday, 7th January will be the first day in 2019 that orders will be actioned.

Do get your orders in for products to create your Christmas cards, orders for ‘Christmas presents’ you can give away to your Scrapping friends and orders for product to scrap your Christmas photos.

As I have not blogged in a while, I have a lot to share with you but don’t want to make this too long …..  so that is all for now, more to come soon.

Happy Scrappin’

Hello from Western Australia

Well it is ‘Hello’ from Western Australia – I have not posted a blog in a while as my Husband and I have been driving from Sydney to Perth.  What a wonderful country we live in, so much to see and everything so diverse.  So, so many photos to scrap which hopefully you will all see in future blogs.

Another sample using different sections of the stencil.

I love seeing pages like this, next to each other, so you can see just how different each collection can be, depending on photos and colours.

Now for a few layouts with some older stencils.

The Fairy stencil, which I have to say, has become one of my favourites – with a single photo created by Yvette in Europe.

For the card makers, I found a video using the new AZZA Flower Stamps I showcased in the last blog to make a beautiful card.  Do ‘click’ below and take a look:

Flower Card

Ruby Stamp:  Field Flowers.  $13.50

I always try and finish off the blog with a 4 x 4 layout, a layout that you do not need a stencil for but it is scrapped in the ‘AZZA way’.  This beautiful page by Mimouscrap is so pretty.  She has used two photos, one of which is an enlargement.  The 2 frames are an AZZA Cutting die.  I love her use of chalks both on the page and inside the paper frames.  Note her little stamped image to match the photos.

The AZZA Australia Team of Directors are very excited to be visiting the AZZA Head Office in Belgium next week and then travelling on to La Palmyre to the AZZA Retreat in Bordeaux.  We will be bringing back with us the latest releases and will be excited to teach our Australian Consultants new techniques we have seen at the annual Australian Retreat in Queensland at the end of October.  As I will be away from next week until the 22nd October there will once again be a bit of a break in blogs, but once home,  all should settle back into routine.

Happy Scrappin’

Well, I haven’t had much time to scrap as we are downsizing so have been packing up the household!  Oh WOW, I was a bit embarrassed to see just how many boxes were marked ‘Craft’, but I know you will all understand, glad I have an understanding Hubby too.  The good thing with AZZA Scrapping is that you really don’t need too many boxes out to keep scrapping the AZZA way.   I have even managed to hold classes with what I have kept out and it all fits in the car quite easily.  That is why I love scrapping the AZZA way!

This month it’s been “Raining Cats and Dogs” I see.  I know a lot of Ladies love to scrap their pets and were wondering where the AZZA Cats and Dogs theme was – well, it has arrived.  The Weather theme is also out this month which is a great theme as it can go on so many pages.

Our basket for the month:

PAN052_500_1000x1000@2x.jpg

Monthly Basket  –  $140.30

All the products can be purchased separately:

AZZA August Products Release

If you do struggle to decorate your pages, the new books AZZA are now releasing with the themed products are a great little buy.  The book contains 52 pages with
16 exclusive page layouts showing step-by-step instructions using various stencils and the ‘Weather’ Decorating products.

ALI3009_500.jpg

Here are a few examples of what the Ladies have created using the new products:

The first page is by Audrey Vast using the AZZA Eclipse stencil and the AZZA Cats stamps.

02b6c92807e0c9f0058fc1953e77be0b.jpg

Deb Byrne created the next page using the Eclipse stencil and the AZZA Dogs stamps and Decoration stencil.  Note how once you have stamped your image you need to bring it to life with your pens, chalks or inks and do remember to always give your image a ‘base’ to stand or sit upon.  This again can be done with your chalk, ink or pens.

The following page was created by Jennie, our Consultant in Townsville.  She has used the AZZA Savannah stencil and the AZZA Weather products.

Jennie has used chalks  and chalking pencils for her border, what a beautiful combination.

The page below was created by Deb, using the AZZA Mauritius stencil and the new AZZA Weather products.  Note her use of the punched out circles, so often we think we have to use them whole, we don’t think of cutting them.

Now for a few pages I found created with the AZZA Fairy stencil.  With double pages being released in July, I thought these layouts would give you some inspiration to get out a double page and begin to create!!  The first layout was created by Yvette in Europe.  A link to her page:  les scraps d’Yvette

Below is the front of the set of pages.

Another page created with the second stencil from the AZZA Fairy Duo, by AZZA Europe, sadly I could not find the name of the person that created the page itself.

I love the use of the AZZA Cork and Die cut used behind the frame.

And lastly a fun snow page by Chantalouscrap with a flap and using all our Winter themed products.  With Australia mid-ski season many of you should have some ‘Snow’ photos ready to GO!!

Now for a little decoration:

We were all waiting with bated breath for the arrival of the Wrought Iron Cutting Die so I thought I would show you how to have some fun with it.

AZZA Cutting Die:  Wrought Iron Frame

A beautiful card made by AZZA Europe.  The cutting die was used together with the AZZA Big shot starter kit.

How beautiful is this little creation below.  I love the shading on the card and the little bit of AZZA Cord holding up the birdcage.  What a lovely gift tag or card.

IMG_6445

Then for something a little different:

Below is the same idea, just different colours.  I did think of those Mums out there having to create Rosettes for competitions, this would be the prefect product for you.

IMG_6720.jpg

AZZA Festive pearls, Cord and ribbon have been used together with the Cutting Die and papers.

IMG_6722

 

While we are looking at cards, the August release of the AZZA Summer and Field flowers are beautiful. These little stamps are only $13.50 and are so versatile.

AZZA Field Flowers

 

Here are some lovely cards that I found on the internet created by the very talented Ladies in Europe.

Christine Caparros.jpg

This card was created by Christine Caparros, her use of the Alcohol pens is amazing.  You can see why the bud and the stem have been kept separate on the stamp itself.

Now for a few pages created with the AZZA Savannah stencil released last month:

 

Muriel Esline.jpg

This is the front page of a double-page layout using the Savannah Stencil.  Note how the front page has been cut so the Title can be seen when the page is closed.

Muriel II.jpg

Below another page created by Jennie, our Consultant in Townsville.  The front page folds out to complete the double inner page.  Jennie will have an AZZA Stand at the Craft Alive in Cairns this weekend, so if you are in the area, do pop in and see her.

AZZA Marine Stencil:

I loved this layout by Mariescrapagogo and her use of colours.  Note how she has brought both colours into her decorations, in the 3D products and the chalking.

AZZA Eclipse Stencil:

I like to finish with a page that shows that you can keep your photos complete, this page was created using the Fairy Stencil.  I keep reminding my Ladies that you do not have to use the whole stencil, you can keep you page as simple or make is as complex as you wish.

Welcome to the Savannah ……

As you can imagine I LOVE this month’s release of products, reminds me of ‘home’ – I am from Zimbabwe originally, but am now an Auzzie with part of Africa still in my heart.

17758190_10155098331682567_576269967418202324_o

The Savannah is a 60 x 30 stencil as it is designed for a double page, but obviously both sides can be used for single layout as per all our AZZA stencils.

On the page above Deb has used the texture stencil on her paper.  The word ‘Nature’ is from the Big Shot Starter kit.

The elephants on Deb’s page were created using the new Zoo Stamp and Die set below.  The detail is so fine, they look gorgeous on the page.

And now for a page Sue Talbot created in one of my classes.  Sue has used the Trio Arches stencil, the Mesh texture stencil, Photography A4 printed sheet, Sewn square and Big shot Starter kit and a little piece of our AZZA cord.  Note how she has highlighted a part of one of the photos in the frame.

aihwwygmr36ddvj14svzw.jpg

The Title has been done using the AZZA Alphabet cutting die: Aubrey.

 

Sue created a second page using the AZZA Essential stencil, cork and the Photography pre-printed page showing how quick decoration can be to place on your page.

The AZZA sketch sheets are great for quick decorations onto your pages, do pop along and see the selection AZZA has:

AZZA Sketch sheets for quick decoration

Today I will end with a creation from an older stencil Fiji, but still available.

idscrap.jpg

Id scrap has used the AZZA Square Scroll Cutting Die and a stamp from the older Ethnic range on her page for decoration.  On her paper she has used the AZZA IZinks  which you can find under our ‘End of Series’ no the website.

And lastly, the beautiful AZZA page created without a stencil by Celine Jeanson.

She has a little “AZZA page dictation” for you …….. (The paw print embossing folder has yet to arrive on the Australian shores, but soon ….)

A little more detail ….

Hi Ladies

A few Ladies have asked for a little more detail on the multiple pages.

EclipsePrecutPagesLyn

Page by Lyn Holmes, NSW.  Australia

I showed you my creation using the AZZA pre-cut pages and many of you have ordered them, but were not too sure where to begin.

Firstly, I suggest you gather all your photos together and decide just how many of the pre-cut pages you would like to use.  Remember you do not have to use them all.  I will show you a layout I have done using only one pre-cut page a little later.

The next step is to decide what your ‘Front’ or ‘Title’ page will hold.  What photos do you want on your front page and then what photos will show through on the pages behind it. The back page is also quite important as you can use it as a full page layout, a base for your creation to sit upon – but remember to continually check  what will be visible when the pre-cut pages have been put in place.

k5wBTPlrSOisBuJC0KT6oA

I then went to work on the pages.  I began with the back page so I could see how the page would look as I built it up. I made sure my decoration in the top left-hand corner would show and the photo in the top right-hand corner would create another corner to my ‘frame’.  I completed my frame with the chalking on the bottom of the back page.  I also ensured the decoration was placed so it would ‘peek out’ from behind my pre-cut pages.

VPe55uoyQHan1Jpiy2zeTA

EclipsebackLyn 1

 

I continually placed the pre-cut page circle onto the page as I was building up to check what would be seen once it was all complete.

The next page I worked on :

Eclipse2Lyn 1

Lyn Holmes, NSW.  Australia

I played with this page to show you that your template does not always have to be straight on the page.  I wanted the circle in the top right-hand position so it would show when the creation was complete.  Now, it took some doing with these photos as I HAD to make sure the photos were straight – took the top of the Colosseum as the ‘horizon’ line.

uTN2NFRRTtyPOsuN4Y7q%A

I used the AZZA Geometric embossing folder on the paper and then brushed the top of it with the AZZA Chocolate ink.  I finished it off with one of the lovely little corners from the new Wrought Iron cutting die set and chalking from the AZZA Chalk collection – Chestnut.

Next, I worked on the green pre-cut page.  Once again, you have to check all the time what you will be able to see behind the pre-cut page once the page is assembled and what will show from behind the front Title page!  Takes a little thought and planning but worth it in the end.

 

Fd1Q0G+pQEC6ecjqKjhXEg

Below, I was looking to see whether to put the smaller pre-cut page behind the green one, and have the green one as the Title page, or the other way around.

gKlDOeLWQ8KBDnh4to1IGA

My final decision …. to use the smaller pre-cut page in front of the green page.

Eclipse1Lyn

Lyn Holmes, NSW.  Australia

I decided to stick with 3 photos and the rest, decoration.  I used the same decoration to keep a theme running through the pages.

Lastly, to the Front or Title page.  The photos you have will dictate what part of the stencil you use.  As you can see, with the circle in the middle, I could have used a round photo in the middle of the second page, this photo would have then been prominent as you looked at the completed page, but I did not want this – decided to go with a bit of a collage behind the Title page.

k5wBTPlrSOisBuJC0KT6oA

EclipseFrontLyn

Lyn Holmes, NSW.  Australia

I decided to use a photo overlapping the edge of the pre-cut page and a small circle stuck to the back of the page so only 2/3 was showing as it suited the small picture I wanted to use.  I had taken a photo of this picture board, so it was actually a photo that I punched a circle out of.

Lastly, I decorated the Brad and set them all in place. If all that is just too hard, why not call your Consultant and ask her to show you just how to do it during a class.  AZZA Consultants are always happy to help.

cY3mO5eQQ86fWkGNJ++R9w

Then winter set in ………………

The next page I only used one pre-cut page and changed the back page to the lovely AZZA Lavender page as it suited the photos.  I used an enlargement on the back page, and as I mentioned before, used the ‘hole’ in the pre-cut page to frame the part of the photo behind that would be prominent when the page was done.  I also used the Alpine cutting die which creates a lovely little square.  I used the Alpine Stencil Duo to ink a few mountains onto the page before sticking the square down.  I then decorated it with a white gel pen, chalk pencils and some AZZA Festive pearls.

EclipseSnow2

I used two colours when inking through the Alpine texture stencil and I also coloured the small trees with the same shades once I had embossed the paper.   The little ‘Beanie’ stamp is just gorgeous to play with, this decoration held the brad in place that I used to attach the pre-cut page.

EclipseSnow

These two little winter stamps snuck in under the radar, so I thought I would bring them to your attention.

I_TAM2012_500.jpg

I have seen some lovely pages decorated with the ‘mug’.

I_TAM2013_500.jpg

Now, just a quick ‘heads up’ on our beautiful AZZA Alize Ruby stamp below:

TAM3030_500-400x400.jpg

If you haven’t ordered it and are thinking about it, get in quick as they are already out of stock in Europe.  Luckily, AZZA Australia still have quite a few in stock.

I used it on the page I created for my Mum.  It can be used in so many ways!

6hHVNH6MS+OOFxhb8ZqdmQ

Look how beautifully it decorated a circle punched out of paper.  I then added a few AZZA Festive pearls.
And still with the winter theme – I went on the create a page with my beautiful little Schnauzer who passed away in January.  She was a Swiss dog,  even had a Swiss passport and she loved the snow!

AlizeThembi

Created by Lyn Holmes, NSW.  Australia

Here I have used the AZZA Alize stencil, AZZA paper, Festive pearls, chalks and a lovely little AZZA Wooden frame to highlight ‘Thembi’.  This page is now in a frame so I can enjoy it each day.

yjL0nbc3Rku1dRiA3S8SVA

AZZA Australia has a ‘Mail Out’ every month.  You can sign up easily, it is $20.00 a month with no lock-in at all.  It is month-to-month so all you do is let us know if you do not want to continue with the programme.  This month it was all about the AZZA Wooden frames that I used on the page above.  Each Customer received a set of two different shapes of frames and an Instruction sheet on all the ways they can be used.  I created this month’s Mail-out so thought I would give you a peek at the sort of thing you would get if you signed up.

The Ladies were shown how to decorate and use the frames in many ways.  The frames can be used to highlight part of a photograph, decoration or for the Title on your page.  The frames are produced in a thin wooden sheet so would really go with any colour tone on the page but they are easy to colour with inks and can even have an image or texture stamped on them.

Here is one of the samples I made up to show how the frames can be used for a Title on the page.  If you would like to sign up, please get in touch with AZZA Australia or me on lynholmes@rocketmail.com.

If you are a Consultant, this would be great to receive and then run a class with your Ladies once a month, or if you are out on your own, nowhere near a Consultant to go to classes, this is a great way to keep in touch and constantly get new ideas for your pages.  Next month will feature:  How to decorate the new Brads and how to use the new ‘Big Top’ card stencil both on cards and on your normal scrapping page.  You will receive a packet of the new brads to decorate and use on your pages and of course, the new AZZA Big Top card size stencil along with all the ideas on how to use these products.   Do go along to our website to check these products out.  Fiona McKay will be creating the document, she always has amazing ideas so do give it some thought.

img_7641.jpg

And now for ideas using the AZZA Arches stencil. The first example shown using the stencil together with the AZZA Alpine themed products and the AZZA Accordion album was created by Carole Pereira, AZZA in Europe.

29177876_798442210365162_7493002478632304640_o.jpg

The front of the album is shown above.  Easy decoration as this decoration was punched out of the already printed A4 Alpine sheet with a little pearl added.

29244385_798442353698481_7940253271594106880_o

A closer look at the pages:

29214983_798442590365124_6936779964414951424_o.jpg

29186975_798442543698462_8755706813363519488_o.jpg

And a completely different creation using the same Trio stencil Arches and the AZZA Accordion sheets, this creation by Audrey Vast.

f3daf626be051100ae88355f2b8db69c.jpg

ea9719dbf49b07876e7d01af3553529f.jpg

… and then to use the same stencil and Accordion sheets on a Scrapping page.

IMG_6414.jpg

IMG_6416.jpgIMG_6415.jpgIMG_6417.jpg

The decorations on the page above using our AZZA Wooden frame stamps, AZZA printed paper and Glitter tape.  I know I often say it, but these stamps are good to have in your collection as they can be used with any theme on the page. (In any colour too)

TAM0032_500-400x400.jpg

 

I always like to show you one page created with the AZZA method of scrapping but not using a stencil:

IMG_7781

A beautiful page with such clean, crisp lines.  Texture on the page has been created using strips of AZZA Cork and AZZA Glitter tape.  The little 3D shapes are from the inside of the AZZA Mosaic Cutting Die.

As AZZA Europe brings out Videos on the new stencils I do add them to my blog.  Last week, Sue came to class having created a page after watching the video on the Alize stencil.  This was her creation:

thumbnail.jpeg

….. and below the page created on the video.  Well done Sue, a wonderful reproduction!  Sue used the Alize Ruby stamp for her decorations.

b2c0c9c1434f191b5180e87b4acbccca copy

For those of us that do not speak French, this A4 Printed sheet decoration can still be used.  Just cover up the French word with a little decoration.

tMIz2eOkROqPiPZA%VP8Jw

That brings me to a close, lots of ideas for you to play with.

Happy scrappin’

Lyn
