Winter is here – Cold nights and lots of scrapping

I thought I would begin the blog with a great video clip of Dominique Spirlet showing us how to use the new Mirage template.  It is great to see more demos being uploaded for us all to share – don’t get too exhausted with the music!!  Rather hectic for scrapping methinks!

A lot of fun has been had with this template, there are just so many options.  Do use the pre-cut pages for some fun on your page:

This is a lovely page by Carine Vanheste – so simple but beautiful in the simplicity.


Page created by Sylviane  Scrap in Europe using the pre-cut pages and the new set of stamps ‘WALK IN THE PARK’ that I just love.  They will be a classic in anyone’s collection. Who would have thought – a pink park bench – but it works!!!



Before Autumn slips by ……..


I am sure a few of you will recognise these shapes from our older AZZA Decoration stencils.


Those of you that have your Autumn Theme kit – get it out and USE IT ….. now is the time.


Remember the grape leaves don’t always have to be green …..

But they can be ……

Duo Porto-Valparaiso 1 Atelier Scrap 38

Lovely page with the ‘World Celebration’ stencil and Autumn colours.  A lot of Folk have asked me if this is still available, sadly NO, but we are hoping it will be re-released later in the year as it was so popular.


A dear little stamp I use often brought to life by Atelier Scrap in Europe.



Page created by idscrap, Europe using the Toronto stencil and the new stamp set

I love the simple lines of the decoration.


I am a child of Africa,


I was born in Zimbabwe in Africa and lived there most of my life, I now live in Sydney Australia.  Pages of Africa always catch my eye.  I would like to share these with you .  Thank you Chantalouscrap for sharing with us.


Using the Celebration stencil and the wonderful Travel stamps.

‘On the Road’ Diamond Stamps – Tam 0012.  $33.50


A beautiful front page using one of the older stencils – Ellipse.  Here she has used one photo on the page but look at the next one ….. wow …. colours of Africa!


I love both of them, so different.  For decoration she has used the ‘Mandala’ Decoration stencil –  GAB 577.

And now on to her double pages using Mauritius stencil and once again Mandala Decoration stencil.



BELOW:  Porto-Valparaiso duo stencils – GAB 708 and AZZA ‘Feathers’ – available in both stamps and decoration stencil.


For my new home, a beautiful page I found using the pre-cut pages of London-Rio and the AZZA leaves.  Single photo layout.


Whilst on single photos I found a few more to share with you –


Using the Sofia-Lima stencil and a little embossing.


This is an older stencil,  Espire – sadly no longer available but for those who have it, some inspiration.

‘Scrolls’ Self-adhesive figures – PAP 401


These can be used with ‘velvet powder’ or sand so can be any colour you wish!

I will end with a few samples using the new AZZA Trio stencils Peace and Pleasure.

Accordion Stencil Trio ‘PEACE’ – GAB 453





Accordion Stencil Trio ‘PLEASURE’

GAB 454








Tutorial on Accordion Album

Beautiful page using Accordion pages by Syl Scrap, Europe.


And finally, a page with a little bit of everything ….


The new Mirage stencil used for the embossed shape.

I do hope that leaves you with a whole lot of inspiration for the cold days and nights ahead when we can all just ‘hunker down’ and scrap.

Happy Scrappin’
