The March Catalogue is up on the website – do pop along and see what is new.
The stencil out this month is a ‘Trio’ – three smaller stencils which can be used on both AZZA Accordion pages and Accordion albums but looks just as beautiful on the normal 30 x 30 pages:
It is also available in Kit form with a sample booklet for $42.00.
AZZA has released a beautiful shade of Blue Accordion album inserts with this stencil – Frost Blue.
We have a wonderful selection of Accordion album inserts available – herewith the link to the website to see all the colours:
Herewith a few creations from the Ladies in Europe – winter reflections!
On this page 2 Accordion sheets have been used. The decoration was made using the AZZA winter texture stencil but this will only be released in Australia closer to our winter (not too far now)!
Above you can see the pages with the Accordion sheets open.
A second page where only one Accordion sheet has been used:
The Accordion sheets allow for a lot more photos to be fitted onto the one page.
Now for a few normal 30 x 30 pages from Europe using the same stencil:
This lovely little Cable car cutting die will also be released in Australia closer to winter.
Chantalouscrap also created a double page using the Marine stencil. She has cut the front page using her stencil.
For decoration she has used the AZZA ‘Walk in the park’ stamp set and the Mosaic Cutting die. Don’t forget your older stamps and decoration stencils when creating your pages.
This is what the page looks like with the double page open.
This stamp set can be used in so many ways to create a decoration. Here is a sample below I made using two of the stamps and a small section from the figurines.
You can also decorate your paper shapes. Below I decorated a shape from the Orion stencil. The leaves hanging down are created by using only part of the ‘tree’ stamp. You can then colour in your little boat to match the colours/tones of your page.
On my Facebook page you may have seen a lovely album I posted from ID Scrap, where she had posted some wonderful pages created with the AZZA Essential stencil. I will post the link to her page and show you my favourite here:
Just a single photo, but striking. The stamps she has used are from the Photography stamp set. On the page below, note how she has used the stamp in 2 parts: top part stamped onto the page and the lower part cut with the matching cutting die to make it 3D.
Do take a look at her full album:
Also new out this month are the Scrap Kits Plus. These have amazing collections for decoration of your pages.
The add-on package for the Family kit in shades of blue.
The add-on kit for the Souvenir Kit in shades of brown.
The add-on kit for the Holiday Kit in lovely bright tropical colours.
These kits are available for $52.00 in Australia.
Also available a new colour block of chalks: Chestnut
Chalks and inks are so important on your pages. They can fill in that corner or space between photos and also just give a colour to the background behind your decorations. Below are two pages Liz did in class – I took a photo of the two pages before she chalked the second one so you could see what a difference chalking makes.
Once she had finished the chalking, she added some decoration. She used the new AZZA Ruby Fireworks stamps:
TAM 3021 – Fireworks. $13.50
Below is a lovely little card I found on the internet where, once again, you can see the use of chalks.
Below a page by Pat’Scrap using AZZA Bilboa stencil and chalks to complete the page.
A page with a single photo using the AZZA Evasion stencil created by Rosalie. I love this page, the chalking just completing the shape of the stencil without taking your eye away from the photo.
Lastly a page without using a stencil but scrapping the AZZA way. Note how she has used chalks on her paper as well as her page.
I have uploaded my classes into the Calendar on the blog. Please pop along and keep the dates. I have included one Saturday morning a month from now on, but this will depend on how many Ladies I get booking in. Please remember to let me know if you are coming.
