Welcome to the Savannah ……

As you can imagine I LOVE this month’s release of products, reminds me of ‘home’ – I am from Zimbabwe originally, but am now an Auzzie with part of Africa still in my heart.


The Savannah is a 60 x 30 stencil as it is designed for a double page, but obviously both sides can be used for single layout as per all our AZZA stencils.

Two beautiful pages created by Deb Byrne, our Tassie Team Leader.  Deb has used the Savannah embossing folder on some of her papers, the Savannah stamps and papers.

On the page above Deb has used the texture stencil on her paper.  The word ‘Nature’ is from the Big Shot Starter kit.

The elephants on Deb’s page were created using the new Zoo Stamp and Die set below.  The detail is so fine, they look gorgeous on the page.

TAM 0053 ZOO – $35.00

And the cutting Die to go with them:

DIE 117 – ZOO.  $27.00

And then there were giraffe ….


Note how inking through the texture stencil onto the printed papers bring out the patterns.


And another page with giraffe, this time a little ‘window’ has been cut out and part of the front page folded back.


The double page below has also been created with the Savannah stencil, this time with the cut-out at the top instead of the side.


The creation below is by Fabienne in Europe, I love the effect she has achieved on her page with inking and papers.

Below, another striking single page by AZZA Suisse, Europe using the Savannah stencil.  Decoration created using AZZA papers together with the embossing folder, inks and the AZZA wooden frames, AZZA Jute and the Big Shot Starter kit cutting die.


Single page below by Fabienne, Europe.  Take note of her lovely decoration, a circle punched out of one of the photos, with a Die cut decoration and a strip of paper through the middle.


AZZA Australia are holding a competition until the end of August, the best layout winning a ‘World Cup’ stencil that will not be released to the general public.


So, it is a special edition stencil.  If you do not receive our newsletter pop along to our NEW website and sign up for all the COMPETITION information.

So, on to the NEW WEBSITE:


Do pop along and take a look.  Note that this link will take you to the website where you can read all about AZZA and more important, read all about our Consultants but to shop, you have to hit the ‘SHOP ONLINE’ or ‘SHOP NOW’ tab to take you across to our shop front.  We are having a few teething problems as with all new launches, but please contact your Consultant if you are having problems and we can sort them out for you.

Now for a few more samples of what is new in July.  The page below has used quite a few of the new products, the Savannah stencil, Savannah embossing folder, the Big Shot Starter Kit together with the lovely little Panda combination of Stamp and Die and strips of the AZZA glitter tape.

TAM/DIE 002 – $16.00

Just how cute is he ….  or she!!


Looking back to last month’s release:  Eclipse.

A lovely page using the Eclipse stencil and a double page.  For the decoration the Eclipse stamp has been used together with a few cut-out circles.

I loved the fun you can see on the following pages:


And then a bit of fun with the colours:


Our Wrought Iron Cutting Die is now in stock, so if you have fallen in love with it, do pop along to our online shop or get in touch with your Consultant.

DIE 118 Wrought Iron Frame – $38.00

Below an amazing page by Sarah, Europe.  She has used the AZZA die above and only one photo. Note the two-tone inking on the page and the die-cut frame.


A few of my Ladies have struggled with the Objective stencil so I thought I would show you a few layouts to inspire you:


A lovely Title page by Sylvie using the stamp and die cut from the AZZA Photography range.


The front page of the double layout below by Floscrap.

And a page by our AZZA Team Leader in Queensland, Rachel Timms.


If you are in Queensland do go and take a look at Rachel’s Blog.

And now for a page Sue Talbot created in one of my classes.  Sue has used the Trio Arches stencil, the Mesh texture stencil, Photography A4 printed sheet, Sewn square and Big shot Starter kit and a little piece of our AZZA cord.  Note how she has highlighted a part of one of the photos in the frame.


The Title has been done using the AZZA Alphabet cutting die: Aubrey.

Sue created a second page using the AZZA Essential stencil, cork and the Photography pre-printed page showing how quick decoration can be to place on your page.

The AZZA sketch sheets are great for quick decorations onto your pages, do pop along and see the selection AZZA has:

AZZA Sketch sheets for quick decoration

Today I will end with a creation from an older stencil Fiji, but still available.


Id scrap has used the AZZA Square Scroll Cutting Die and a stamp from the older Ethnic range on her page for decoration.  On her paper she has used the AZZA IZinks  which you can find under our ‘End of Series’ no the website.

And lastly, the beautiful AZZA page created without a stencil by Celine Jeanson.

She has a little “AZZA page dictation” for you …….. (The paw print embossing folder has yet to arrive on the Australian shores, but soon ….)


If you want to see details of the page above or follow her ‘Page Dictation’ to create your own page, pop along to …..

And with that, happy scrappin’

    Lyn, These are the most amazing layouts I have ever seen! I know you must use some type of stencils to make them. I am from Minnesota in the USA. Where can I purchase the stencils so I may make some layouts like these? Do you sell them? Thank you for any information.

      Hi Barb
      Yes, the pages are made with stencils and you can get them from us here in Australia. Unfortunately, we don’t have any Consultants up and running in the USA or Canada yet, but we do have a lot of Customers we send to in the States and Canada. Do pop along to our website: AZZAworld.com.au note the (au) which will bring you to Australia. On our website you will be able to see all the stencils we have and the pages you can do with them. On my blog there is a gallery so if you like a page you can see what the name is or if you like a stencil you can see what can be done with it.
      I am happy to chat about which stencils to begin with and Skype with you on how to use the stencils so they work the best.

      All you need are your photos, a pen that you can mark the photos with that will rub off once you have cut them and then a roll of re-positional tape to stick the photos to the stencil.

      Other than that it is your page and the tape to stick the photos to the page, but it is ever so easy.

      Do let me know if I can be of further help once you have looked at our website. You can register without placing an order, you can put me as your Consultant and I will then liaise with you about what to order, but at least you can see costs. Once we have placed the order we can confirm that the shipping is correct. All our orders have arrived in the States within 10 days to two weeks without any problems.
