With all the festivities behind us I thought I would begin with ideas for placing more photos on the page. AZZA has wonderful double pages that enables you to get a whole ‘story’ onto a set of pages. There are both vertical and horizontal double pages.
Do go along to our Website and check them out – AZZA Double pages
Using the double pages and the Travel Kit Stencil:
Below, a beautiful page by Jouselou cutting out part of the stencil to show the back page.
I thought I would put the following page in to show how you can keep your photos a little larger if you wish.
Note the beautiful embossing on these pages, they have used the AZZA Embossing Folder ‘Scrolls’
Embossing folder ‘Scrolls’ – Emb006. $12.00
In one of my last blogs I showed you the AZZA Cutting Die ‘Scrolls’, these two work well together on the page and are versatile as they can go with any theme.
Cutting Die ‘Scrolls’ – Die 027. $30.00
Here Marie has entwined them with paper – I love this idea.
In this decoration by So Scrap, Europe she has used the AZZA Wooden Scroll, but the same decoration can be done with the Scrolls Die. A beautiful decoration, you can use this idea on any page with circles just change the figurines to those that suit the page!
On to more double pages, this time using the NEW AZZA Colours Lavender and Violet, they are beautiful, would work well with black and white photos too. A beautiful creation by idscrap, Europe.
Using the Marshmallow stencil, again you will see the AZZA Scrolls being used for the decoration.
Note, the lighter page is an extra page on top of the double ‘pink’ page.
Marie will have used enlargements on this page to get the great ‘vista’ of the scene.
The small vertical flap above is opened below:

Some of you may have bought Vienna-Beijing in the sale. Here Chantalouscrap has joined 2 double pages – the top page is on the right, the bottom page is on the left! Hope you can work it out.
Above is the page to the right (the centre spread it below)
Below is the page to the left. (Centre spread above)
Another way to get more photos onto you page is with the AZZA pre-cut pages that go with the AZZA stencils. Here I have used the Noisette stencil with the pre-cut pages.

Opening the pages to the top:

…. and to the bottom.

And a page with the other pre-cut pages for the Noisette stencil by Chantalouscrap.
Using the pre-cut pages for the AZZA Stencil Essential, a beautiful set of pages by Christine, Europe.
Another idea to get more photos onto a page is with a ‘flap’, here is a sample using the AZZA Fiji stencil.
Page by Nicole Gabillat Recouverur, Europe.
Below, a double page using the Bahamas stencil, still one of my favourite!
…. and lastly, don’t forget the AZZA Accordion pages. These are so easy to use and they add so many more photos to your page.
I love the circle ‘cut-out’ on the sides of the Accordion page to allow for the decoration in the centre.
So with double pages, pre-cut pages, flaps, accordion pages – there are so many options to add more photos to your 30×30 pages.
As it is Valentine’s Day today, I found this lovely page using the AZZA Canaries stencil – with lots of lovely hearts. Don’t forget your older stencils – do pull them out from time to time.
Looking for some nice winter pages to cool us all down in Australia I found this lovely page by Mimouscrap using the Bilbao-Macau stencil. I love the way she has punched out the paper decoration to allow for the little circles.
Still with Bilbao-Macau, Marie created a fun page using the Japanese Theme kit for decoration, the pearl markers do pop up the decorations.
A beautiful page using the Galapagos stencil, the new AZZA colours and Cutting Die – ‘Openwork Frieze’.
Page by ScrapdeRoz, Europe
Note how you can thread paper or ribbon through the Frieze.
Openwork Frieze Die – Die 069. $35.00
The set has an embossing stencil to match:
Embossing folder ‘Mesh Texture’ – Emb015. $12.00
Whilst on decoration I just had to post this FUN page by Isascrap. I love the colours she has used. Once again, she has used the Japanese Theme kit, this time with the AZZA Madrid-Sydney stencil.
Decorations using the ‘Scrolls’ Die again, this page by Marie using the AZZA ‘Eole’ Stencil.
By now I am sure you realise the ‘Scrolls’ Die Cutters are a MUST!
Lastly, I had to show you this page where the same little stamp I showed you last time was used – but just look how different it looks on the page. Monique has used her own set of ‘clothing’ on the line and has used the two flowers on their own.
Monique has used the AZZA Essentials stencil.
Page by Monique, Europe.
This little stamp is on SALE at the moment and is only $4.95.
I always like to bring you a page with a Single photo layout and a 4 x 4 page as we call them at AZZA, a page that can be created without using a stencil, but still in the AZZA style.
This 4 x 4 page was created by Aline Chevalier in Europe. She has used the new AZZA embossing stencil ‘Drawstring’ on her paper cut-outs.
Embossing folder ‘Drawstring’ – EMB 016. $12.00
and for our single page layouts ……
Beautiful page by Rosalie using the AZZA Essentials stencil and the new AZZA Violet page.
She has also used the AZZA Texture stencil ‘School’, great for school photos.
School Texture Duo stencils – GAB 259. $16.50
And a page by Christine Ronsin using the AZZA Mirage stencil. Would be lovely in a frame too.
And now to the new stencil available in Australia in March:
Perfumes of the South – Limited edition. $142.00 KIT 2047
This will ONLY BE AVAILABLE IN THE KIT FORM. As with the Celebration stencil AZZA will only be bringing in a set amount, so once they are gone, there will be no more. So, do get in early with your orders if you would like one.
