I do hope you all had a wonderful festive season and a relaxing break.
Many of you may still be on holiday, some in the snow and some at the beach, but soon we will all fall back into the routine of the year. But, before you get all your latest photos printed ….. our newest stencil is paired with the AZZA Vintage theme – so dig out all those old photos you have been meaning to do something with, now is the time to get them into an album.
AZZA Verlaine Stencil Duo
Dominique has prepared a video just for you. In the decoration detail, note how she wets the sponge and dries it off as much as possible before applying the ink. This is to do with looking after your sponge, not the application of the ink. She also shows you how to finish off your stamped image to give it more character.
The beautiful page below has been created by Theresa Dean, our AZZA Consultant in Launceston, Tasmania. The stamp she has used is the Alize Ruby stamp, it is a beautiful little stamp and can be found in our sale that is on at the moment.
And a beautiful set of pages by L’atelier scrap de la lutine, Europe.
The Verlaine stencil is available in a Studio Kit, Stencil Duo or a Basket as it has been released with pre-cut pages.
The beautiful colours of Bordeaux and Powder Pink run throughout the Vintage theme too. You can get both plain and patterned papers and large ink pads in both of these colours.
Don’t miss the classic papers: these colours are timeless.
Now, Verlaine is not just for Vintage themes. Herewith some layouts I wanted to share with you from one photo on the page with the Verlaine stencil to 4 photos on the page.
The lovely page below was created by our Townsville Consultant, Jennie Banks.
The Vintage embossing folder and stamp set have been used on many of the pages I have included in this blog.
Now for pages with 2 photos. The first page has, once again, been created by Jennie Banks in Townsville.
Pages with three photos:
Pages with 4 photos: The first page was created by Fiona McKay, AZZA Team Leader in Western Australia.
Herewith another AZZA Video showing a page created with the second stencil of the duo. Note how Dominique decorates the 2 cut out pieces of paper with a texture stencil, decorating them before she places them on her page.
Reminder: AZZA Annual Sale began on Monday. Don’t miss out. Pop along to our website/shop.
The new dies that have been released are beautiful. You can see they have been used on many of the pages above. Don’t just cut them out and place them onto the page, look how beautiful they look with a bit of ink on them and then decorated with pearls and pens.
If you need ideas on how to create your Vintage pages, AZZA has released a great little book full of ideas for you.
The Vintage stencil comes with pre-cut pages so I thought I would show you a few sets created by our Australian Consultants. These sets of pre-cut pages are wonderful, but they do take a bit of planning.
Firstly, a set that Hilary, our Team Leader in Victoria has created.
The next set of pages have been created by Barbara Rae, our AZZA Consultant in Eaton, Western Australia.
May we document many, many beautiful memories throughout 2019.
