As Spring approaches we get to use the Nature Theme …… and a little piece of string

The AZZA  ‘Nature’ theme has been released in Australia this month.  It is beautiful and so versatile – it can be used on so many different themed pages.

The stencil released this month was a Book Stencil – Nature.  These are great value for money at only $14.00

A beautiful sample of an album made with the Nature stencil and decoration product can be seen on a web page – Qui a dit ‘scrapbooking’  –  Stavelot au debut du Printemps.  Her album shows the use of most of the products released in this new theme.

The embossing folder she has used will be released in Australia soon – it is part of the next Theme kit.

Below Christine has created a beautiful page using the Orion stencil, the Orion cutting dies, lace figurine from the Nature theme and the gorgeous ‘Scarecrow’ from the AZZA Large stamp set “Weekend in the County.”

Orion 5

I love this little guy and thought I would show you how many ‘shades’ he can take on – it depends on the colours of YOUR page.

The set of pages below are by Christine Capel, Europe, using the pre-cut page set for the Orion stencil and the ‘scarecrow’ stamp.  I love her detail on the decoration.

I love the ‘little piece of string’ and it adds texture and character to your page …….  so here are a few ideas ………. with a little piece of string ……….

decoration 3

Beautiful decoration on a page using the ‘Tribal Indian’ Large stamp set, the ‘little piece of string‘ brings texture to the page.

Page below created by Rosalie, Europe using the Orion stencil and ‘Nature’ and ‘Cogs’ theme for decoration.  Her ‘little piece of string’ is tied into a bow.

So Scrap below has connected her two decorations on the page by                                           ‘a little piece of string’

Again, Be Creative has joined two decorations together with ‘a little piece of string’

c6ccd42c6e0545fae968a674c2c92c91

… and of course frames can always have ‘a little bit of string’ around them ……

…..  ‘a little piece of string‘ to hang things on.

44941eb9aa2a825ce5ff4232ed68ebe6.jpg

Of course, two pieces of string may be even better than one.  Here Mimouscrap has created a beautiful page bringing both colours into the decoration:

116897806

She has used the ‘Around the world’ celebration stencil, sadly no longer available.

116897808

All of us have ‘little pieces of string’ in our craft boxes – get them out and find a way to use them on you next little work of art.

Whilst I was on Mimouscrap’s web page – her layouts are wonderful so I thought I would share a few more with you where she has used some of the older layouts.  Get yours out and give them a go again.

This layout is using Sydney-Madrid stencil.  Again she has used the ‘Round Lace Mats’ AZZA dies that are on sale at the moment in Australia.  If you have a single photo you want to frame or create as a gift – what a perfect layout.  Christmas is around the corner!!

116825673

116825676

Her second layout is using Mauritius Stencil and the same AZZA cutting dies.

116825652_o

116825683

Showing you don’t always have to emboss the whole piece of paper.

Thanks Mimouscrap for sharing these layouts with us.

I have 2 classes in August in Sydney but there will be no classes (or blogs) in September or October as I am overseas.  In November I have listed 3 classes to make up for the break incase there are Ladies wanting to finish projects for Christmas.  The Christmas class with be held on the 8th or the 15th depending which date suits most Ladies.

Can you believe we are talking about the end of the year already!!

Well I do hope I have managed to share with you some great inspiration from the AZZA Ladies around the world.

Happy Scrappin’
