Holidays are over ……..


Welcome to the New Year and oh so many photos to scrap from Christmas and New Year Celebrations.  Some of you will still be on holiday, Australia only goes back to school at the end of January, so photo opportunities abound.

I have locked in 2 classes in January, normally I would only have one, but my Ladies are home and ready to scrap.

Friday, 12th January and Wednesday, 24th January – if you would like to come along to a class please let me know as there are limited spaces.  If you wold like some of the new January stock to collect at class do let me know as soon as possible so I can order it for you and have it waiting.  Our January catalogue is now online:

AZZA January Catalogue

There is also always a ‘Clearance Sale’ in January, I will let you know those details as soon as possible.  AZZA only opens next Monday, 8th January so I am sure Sale details will be available soon after that.

Our Autumn Promenade theme this month brings with it all the Autumn hues and of course leaves, pumpkins and hedgehogs!

To begin with our Autumn Promenade Large stamp set:



Above, a lovely page created with the Fairy stencil using the stamp set and Autumn papers.  Below a close-up of a decoration by Robin Francoise, Europe.  She has also used one the the new AZZA Embossing Folders – Mosaic.

For those of you that like something that you can use with any theme throughout the year, you will love the Theme kit MOSAIC and SQUARE products that have been released in Australia this month.

Mosaic Theme Kit:


Kit 3011- $70.00

This Kit is great as it comes with a booklet to give you ideas on how to use the product, it features the next stencil that AZZA will release, Marine.  All items other than the booklet are available individually.

I have used the decoration stencil above on my page created with the Fairy stencil.  I used the AZZA Cutting Die CUSHION FRAMES and  BAROQUE FRIEZE as I thought they went well with the Fairy stencil shapes.

Page created by Lyn Holmes, Australia – Fairy stencil

The Mosaic Mini stamps and the ‘Squares’ stamps are lovely as they too can be used on any page.  Great to fill in that corner between photos.  Used as a single stamp or collection of three in a line.

The Embossing folders are fun, both Autumn and Mosaic:


Autumn Promenade –  $12.00


Mosaic – $12.00

And I always love the AZZA Micro stamps:



Autumn Countryside – $9.90

I would also like to show you the cork sheets AZZA now have in stock.


AZZA Cork Adhesive A4 Sheets – 3 in a pack.

There are two colours and they can be used with the Big Shot, Cuttlebug or similar machine to create your own decorations.  They are ‘adhesive A4 sheets’ so easy to get onto the page too.  They work well with the AZZA Cutting Dies.

Hilary has played with a few using the Patchwork Cork:


Cork used together with the AZZA Cutting Die ‘Tree and Leaves’


Above is a sample of the plain cork used together with the new AZZA Cutting Dies.  Both Cutting Dies and Cork sheets can be seen on the link below.

On the page above the cork has been used with the new Cutting Die and the coloured Figurines have been mounted on cork.


AZZA Europe

In the page above the cork has been used together with paper, the cork gives a nice texture to the page.  The new MARINE stencil has been used, coming soon to Australia.


AZZA Europe

The above page shows how the cork can be used with the Cutting Dies and as a mount for the lace figurines.  The small cork ‘star’ is the centre of the shape cut and used in the centre of the page.

Below is a close-up of a coloured lace figurine mounted on paper and cork.


A lovely close-up of Audrey Vast’s decoration with figurines which have not been coloured, mounted on paper.  Lovely and fresh.


I know many of you have the AZZA Cutting Die ‘Tree and Leaves’ – here it has been used for decoration on a page created with the AZZA Fairy stencil.  The Mosaic embossing folder has been used on the paper to give it texture.


Lastly two beautiful creations for some inspiration on your Christmas pages by Robin Francoise.  Here she has used some of the AZZA Christmas products and the wooden frames that match the Fairy stencil.



AZZA Wooden Frame Figures Fairy – $13.00


AZZA Card Stencil  ‘Christmas Tree’  –  $7.50

Below Robin has used the  Card stencil above and AZZA Cork for texture on her card.


Until next time, happy Scrappin’
