Well it is ‘Hello’ from Western Australia – I have not posted a blog in a while as my Husband and I have been driving from Sydney to Perth. What a wonderful country we live in, so much to see and everything so diverse. So, so many photos to scrap which hopefully you will all see in future blogs.
Before we begin with product, I would like to welcome Sue Talbot and Amber Tecles to our AZZA Consultant family. I trained both Amber and Sue who will now be holding classes in New South Wales. Sue will be holding classes in and around Castle Hill and Amber in Albion Park. Do pop along to our website if you would like to find out more about the classes they run.
The AZZA Rosette stencil has been released and doing well.
Herewith the AZZA Video giving you some inspiration as to how to use your Rosette stencil:
The Rosette stencil was released with pre-cut pages in beautiful ‘earthy’ tones of Mango and Brick.
Below are some creations for you to see. This first page by Ingrid in Europe is using only one photo and the Texture stencil ‘Weather’.
The second page is by our WA Consultant, Barb Rae in Eaton, WA. Barb has used the same Texture stencil as above and some of the lovely AZZA cords now available. The AZZA Mail Out Club Members will have received some of these cords already.
Below, a page by Deb Byrne, Team Leader in Tassie. Deb has used a ‘New York’ micro stamp that will be released in Australia soon.
The page below by RJS, Europe using the Rosette stencil, Wrought Iron paper and embossing stencil, chalks and inks. I love the idea of the little labels with the AZZA cord attached, one used as a Title. The labels are cut with the AZZA Cutting Die – Gift tags.
The ‘Weather’ embossing folder has been used below together with Wrought Iron die cuts, inks and pens.
The pages below are the front of layouts with the pre-cut pages. Pre-cut pages are ideal to use if you want to get your photos into a set of pages which contain one story.
Another sample using different sections of the stencil.
I love seeing pages like this, next to each other, so you can see just how different each collection can be, depending on photos and colours.
Lastly, an interesting set of pages which I found quite striking.
As you know AZZA Australia has been running a competition over the last few months, the prize being a ‘Football’ stencil released for the World Cup.
We had 3 winners, Jane Sander, Jill Dahler and Leonnie Wilson.
Jane used the AZZA Mashmallow stencil on a double page.
Jill used the AZZA Objective stencil on a double page.
Leonnie Wilson created an amazing page with Accordion sheets, using the Trio Arches stencil.
Leonnie’s front page above.
With Halloween around the corner, I thought I would give you a ‘sneak peek’ at the Halloween products you will be able to order from 1st October. This year we even have a Glow In The Dark embossing powder so your creations can look even more spooky.
Deb Byrne our Tassie Team Leader has already made a lovely little lantern for Halloween:
She has also had fun with the other products using the Fiji stencil for her layout – her web does glow in the dark!!
Below is a card sample I found on the internet.
Now for a few layouts with some older stencils.
The Fairy stencil, which I have to say, has become one of my favourites – with a single photo created by Yvette in Europe.
Deb Byrne created the page below with the Fairy stencil and the Weather, Cats and Dogs decorating products.
The following pages were created by Sue Talbot, our NSW Consultant. Sue has used the Savannah stencil and a double page in the first layout.
The layout below Sue used the Alize stencil:
Lastly, Sue’s layout using the Eclipse stencil and the beautiful AZZA cutting Dies. She has used the Wrought Iron dies and a few leaves from the Big Shot Kit.
The layout below was created by Amber Tecles, NSW. Amber used the AZZA Scrap kit: Family.
For the card makers, I found a video using the new AZZA Flower Stamps I showcased in the last blog to make a beautiful card. Do ‘click’ below and take a look:
I always try and finish off the blog with a 4 x 4 layout, a layout that you do not need a stencil for but it is scrapped in the ‘AZZA way’. This beautiful page by Mimouscrap is so pretty. She has used two photos, one of which is an enlargement. The 2 frames are an AZZA Cutting die. I love her use of chalks both on the page and inside the paper frames. Note her little stamped image to match the photos.
The AZZA Australia Team of Directors are very excited to be visiting the AZZA Head Office in Belgium next week and then travelling on to La Palmyre to the AZZA Retreat in Bordeaux. We will be bringing back with us the latest releases and will be excited to teach our Australian Consultants new techniques we have seen at the annual Australian Retreat in Queensland at the end of October. As I will be away from next week until the 22nd October there will once again be a bit of a break in blogs, but once home, all should settle back into routine.
Gorgeous layouts! I just love coming to visit this blog and seeing so many AMAZING ideas. But please– NO MORE spider layouts! I am completely terrorized by them, even photos of them. I had to work on my deep breathing while viewing the fascinating page by Deb. Thank you so much for sharing such a variety of creations.
