Competition for Customers in Australia

This beautiful page by Karine Aubre who lives in Europe was created with the AZZA Sports products new release here in Australia this month and a Special Edition Stencil – Tennis. This stencil will not be available to purchase but you can go into the draw to win one if you place an order this month with a minimum of $100.00 of the August release products.

Karine has used a selection of the AZZA Sports products, she has used the Embossing folder on the black paper, the Texture stencil on the shirt shape which was cut out with one of the dies, the stamps and the Decorative stencil. I love this page!

Below is a layout by Sue Toogood, our AZZA Consultant in Gulliver, Queensland. Sue has used the AZZA Sports products together with the Orlando Stencil.

Sue has used the patterned papers from the Sports theme, the Cutting dies and a picture from the A4 Sketch sheet. Note how beautifully she has chalked her page, both on the page and the papers. I love the way she has grounded her player with a little grass and used the same decoration with the ball (which she has highlighted with a Resin pellet) and the A4 Sketch sheet image.

For those of us in Australia who do not speak French, please note the Palm tree/Sun stamp Sue has used on her page – this came with the Scrap & Moi magazine but had some French words on the side (see below). This is a great example of how you can use the stamp without the words. You can either block the words off with your re-positional tape so they do not stamp, (Ask your Consultant if you do not know how to do this) or if you are one of Hilary’s ladies, I am sure you will have seen, Hilary cuts off the part of the stamp she does not need (or like!!) and then you have just what you want.

At the beginning of the month the Western Australian team participated in the WA Craft Show. We chatted to a lot of our ladies who knew us already, but also chatted to a lot of new customers who loved the clean, crisp look of the AZZA way of Scrapbooking. If you have just signed up to my blog, WELCOME! Don’t forget to go along to our website to find out where your nearest AZZA Consultant is.

Jennie Banks and Sue Toogood have also been very busy up in Queensland. They were at the Townsville show last weekend and have travelled up to Cairns to participate in the Craft Alive show in Cairns, THIS WEEKEND. If you are in the area, do pop along and see them at the Cairns Showgrounds.

I too have been playing the with August products – this time ‘In my Garden’ and they are lovely. Below is the page I created with the AZZA Orlando stencil. I used AZZA Embossed paper – Raspberry to finish off the page together with inks, chalks, a stamped image, the texture stencil and a few AZZA pearls. Note how I have used the In my Garden Texture stencil on the page with chalks and on the embossed paper with inks.

The stamped image below is off the AZZA In My Garden large stamp set (above). I have used all the stamps and they are so versatile. I stamped the watering can onto white card then coloured it with a black Chalk pencil/blending tool and a silver Gel pen.

This is the other stamp I wanted to show you today, I cannot show you the whole page as this stencil is only available in Australia next month – so a sneak peek! As you can see I have used the stamp on the bottom right of the set, but what I love about it is that you can use some of the elements on their own. In this image I have kept the little spade on its own, but you could also keep the watering can separate too.

In the lovely page below created by Michelle Delcomminette using the AZZA New York stencil you will see the same texture stencil has been used together with the Seasonal papers to match.

This is a page I have created using the AZZA Boston stencil, the In my Garden papers and Cutting die. For the decoration I have cut two images in different colours and mounted them just a little off set from each other. Note how I have finished off the decoration with AZZA Burgundy ink around the outside of the pink and chalking pencils on the image finished off with a few pearls.

As I sit here and feel the icy winds of Perth I thought I would remind you of our ‘SNOW’ products released last year. A lot of you will be skiing – yes we do ski in Australia, so don’t forget your decoration products you can use on your pages now winter has come!

I created the page above using the AZZA Orion stencil and one of the pre-cut pages. The decoration on the circle that holds the two pages together is from a beautiful little AZZA Ruby stamp set:

I finished off the stamped image with Chalk pencils and an AZZA pearl.

The Texture stencil I used was:

The lovely Alize Ruby stamp below I use a lot, it is so delicate. I still have three in stock if anyone would like one – the shop has sold out but as I was travelling and had no classes I still have a few.

The online shop still has a few of these lovely cutting dies left in stock: Alpine Window. Don’t forget the gorgeous Cable Car which is a Stamp/Die set:

So if you don’t ski but go up into the snow, this is the Stamp/Die set for you!! The page below I created with the AZZA Alize stencil and the Alpine seasonal papers.

      Hi Jenny, Yes we are definitely coming over – but it will be next year now. I ended up moving inter-state and we drove over from Sydney to Perth. I was a Traveller for about 4 months but have now settled this side of the island. We have our AZZA Conference in October and New Zealand is definitely on the agenda. Will let you know how it goes. Thanks for keeping in touch. Regards, Lyn
