Winter is also the rugby season – YAY – my family watch rugby and I scrap at the table behind them, everyone is happy.
The June Catalogue is out now, wow so many new products. The ECLIPSE stencil and the Wrought Iron themed decoration products. These decoration products are great as they go with almost any theme.
The ECLIPSE stencil is available as a Stencil Duo and in the Studio Kit shown below.
As there are pre-cut pages with this stencil there is a June Basket including both the Focus and the Studio kit.
There is a bigger basket containing all the June products as these have been so popular. Do pop along to the website and take a closer look.
I had fun creating a page with one of the pre-cut sets of pages.
The front pre-cut page open:
The second page open:
The third page open:
So, as you can see you can get a lot of photos into a ‘Single page’ creation. Note the new AZZA brads have a lovely flat ‘top’ where you can create your own decoration in keeping with the theme of the page. I chose to use some twine from our great selection of colours:
I also used the twine in the decoration to bring it together on the page.
I thought I had better do a few simple pages with the ECLIPSE stencil so that you don’t think your pages have to be difficult. This page is a lovely little page, keeping it very simple, I do love the flow of the lines on this page.
A lot of my Ladies in the workshops want to get as many photos onto a page as possible, mostly without any journalling, so this next page shows how you can fill the page with photos.
I have used the beautiful Texture stencil from the Wrought Iron themed products, it is a must in your collection.
Here is a video for you to watch from Dominique to see how she creates her page using the ECLIPSE stencil:
And now for a few beautiful creations I found whilst roaming the internet:
A beautiful single page using the AZZA Cutting Die MOSAIC.
This page shows that you can get quite a few photos onto the single page with this stencil.
Still in Africa, this is a great use of the stencil shapes.
Again, a completely different look.
This page is one of my favourites, unfortunately the Wrought Iron Cutting Die will only be available in Australia in July.
Sandra has used the Photography themed products on this page together with the new Cutting Die – Big Shot Starter Kit now available in Australia.
I also found a few lovely cards made with this cutting die and the new AZZA Overlay stamps.
I do have to apologise as in my last blog the link to Dominique’s Alize video did not connect. Here it is again.
Here is my creation with the ALIZE stencil. You can keep your photos large with this stencil using only the inside edges of the ‘petal’ shapes.
As you can see I added a little bit of the AZZA twine to the decoration again and have also used the AZZA Alpine papers.
Now, the cable car does not have to be used with snow only …… here Sue has used it with her photos from Israel. Sue created the page with the FAIRY stencil.
This is another of Sue’s pages, she has used the Arches Trio stencil to create the page. For her decorations she has used AZZA twine, ‘Mesh’ texture stencil, a picture from the Photographic A4 printed sheet and AZZA Cutting Dies.
Sue used the tool now available from AZZA which makes getting all the little bits out of the decoration easy once you have run it through your machine.
It’s the Big Shot brush and foam pad.
Well, I do hope that gives you an idea of all that’s new from AZZA in Australia. I have one last page to share with you that I made for my Mum before she returned home. I used the ECLIPSE stencil, the Wrought Iron cutting dies, pearls, twine, AZZA paper, chalks, inks, figures and the Ruby stamp Alize.
The Cutting dies are beautiful on the page and are timeless.
