As we jump into the Festive Season …..


As we all prepare for Christmas and the holidays I am not sure how much scrapping has been done, but I know there will be many photos taken in the next few weeks and these will keep us busy in the new year.

I thought I would share a few pages I have created using some of the newer stencils.

Below is a page using a pre-cut page, the ‘Noisette’ stencil and some of the Wood Texture paper.  This is a great little pack as it can be used with any theme.


Wood Texture paper pack (8)



Having completed the page I wondered how I could have missed the bright orange cone in one of the photos – nothing is beyond ‘fixing’ in scrapping so  …..



A small circle punch in the same colour card as the background, embossed with the same embossing folder (Spinning Top) and chalked.  To balance the page I added a second one on the left-hand side of the page too.  The circle had to be cut into two sections to accommodate the fold in the pre-cut page.


Voila – now I am  happy.

The next page I created was to show how items brought back from a holiday can be incorporated into the page.  I am often asked how this can be done.  Of course, it depends on the size of the item too.  Here I have done a page at the beginning of the album with the idea of incorporating the ‘Voyage’ information we received on the trip.


I created the front page using the ‘Travel Kit’ and cut the page into the shape for the flap.  I used general photos of the ship for this cover.  I used the AZZA metallic paper and the embossing folder Icicles – EMB 003.


For the inside spread I used the same stencil and incorporated the ‘items’ where I could.


A second page using one of my favourite stencils Porto-Valparaiso.


Here I incorporated one of the ‘Swizzle sticks’ from the bar.  The little stamped image is one of the stamps included in the AZZA Travel Kit.

This last page of mine I only had two photos to work with and neither were of really good quality, but I am happy with the result.


I have used the ‘Dessert’ tag off one of AZZA’s new A4 Printed Sketch Sheets, they are great to incorporate onto a page.

The ‘Childhood Memories’ sheet below is very versatile and can be used on so many different themed pages.

I have found a lovely web page on AZZA creations, I was looking for some card ideas and came across it.  Unfortunately I cannot find the name of the Creator, but here are a few samples made with the AZZA Christmas Magic Theme products.




Do pop along to the website and take a look, she also has a link to ‘videos’ for AZZA.

Our new stencil for January is ‘Everest’ – a new Trio Stencil.


As with all our Trio Stencils, these are for use on both the large scrapping pages and the AZZA Accordion sheets.

Audrey Vast has produced a great little number with this The Everest Theme Kit.  For a full view do go along to her website.


The cover she created using the new Autumn Theme products:




All products she has used are to be released in Australia in January.



A lovely page created by Vanessa Bronckart, Europe using the Everest Trio.

On that note, with snow in the Northern Hemisphere we celebrate Christmas in Australia with the sun :


I would like to thank you for your support during the year and hope you have all enjoyed the creations I have shared with you.  I would also like to thank those whose pages I have shared on my blog, so many very talented Ladies out there.

I send you Christmas Blessings wherever you may be:




See you all in the New Year


Greetings from Sydney, Australia
