There will be no cleaning the house this month – Neptune and Universe have hit our shores and they are beautiful!
The new colours are Copper and Cherry, so rich and the Universe products are fun! I love circles so I am in my element.
October Baskets on offer:
The October NEPTUNE Basket at $127.00. This basket includes both the Neptune Studio and the Focus book with the pre-cut pages.
The October UNIVERSE Basket at $48.90. This includes the AZZA Decor book with lots of wonderful ideas on what to do with the products, a Decoration stencil and Micro stamp both featured in the book.
All these products are available to purchase individually.
Hilary Hamilton our Director/Team Leader in Victoria has used a set of the pre-cut pages with photos of our Sunburnt country – they match beautifully. Hilary has used an AZZA Alphabet die for her title.
Deb Byrne AZZA Director/Team Leader in Tasmania also created a few beautiful pages:
Deb has used the embossing folder Cosmos, the new Resin dots that have not yet arrived in Australia, ink and a white pen on the page above.
On the page above Deb has used one of the stamps from the Large stamps set Universe, inks for shading and finished off her page with the new Copper gel pen together with a gold gel pen and brown writer.
Deb’s third page is of her beautiful family, a proud Mum indeed.
Deb has used the Neptune stencil, black/white/copper/cherry papers, resin dots, ribbon and part of one of the new Universe wooden frames.
The Resin dots have not arrived on our shores yet, but will be here shortly.
If you do not want to purchase the pre-cut pages you can still have fun with the new Universe cutting die:
This beautiful page by Sabine above shows the die on the page. Sabine has used the AZZA Zoo Patterned Seasonal papers. Note how she has chalked the 5mm lines onto the paper. Sabine has also used the new Resin dots. Sabine’s tones on her pages are always amazing.
COPPER and CHERRY are the two new colours in the AZZA range. We have both colours in our 30 x 30 page and 30 x 60 (Double pages) range together with stamp pads to match. The double-sided paper is a good buy as you can use whichever side suits your page.
If you would like a little inspiration from Dominique Spirlet, a member of the AZZA Creative Team here is a little video for You:
As you will see in the video a quick way to get the shape you have cut with your AZZA die onto your page is with the AZZA E-Z re-positionable dots. This is so much easier than applying little dots of glue from your glue pen. This runner is also great for little strips of paper/photo or pieces of paper/photo with little ‘pointy’ ends.
In August AZZA Australia ran a competition for both Consultants and Clients to win the limited edition Tennis stencil.
Our Client winners were Jo Green in Queensland and Jane Sander in Western Australia. Congratulations to you both.
Our Consultant winners were Petra Jaynes in South Australia and Sue Toogood in Queensland. Consultants had to submit a page using our August products, I have posted them in my blog before but here they are again:
Sue used the AZZA Orlando stencil and Petra used AZZA Eole stencil. Both used the Sport themed decorations on their pages. Congratulations your pages are beautiful.
At the end of this month many of you will be ‘Trick or Treating’ so I thought I would remind you of our Halloween products we have on sale this month. You can also make a few Halloween cards.
The above kit is on sale for $42.00 instead of $48.00 but we have a few fun products that are still in our catalogue.
I had fun with these products creating a little AZZA Mini-album. I used the AZZA Berlin stencil. The AZZA Magazine Scrap & Moi features these little books quite often. If you have subscribed take a look at one of the older editions: Number 37, page 44. It uses the AZZA Serenity Trio which is no longer available, but you can adapt the idea to any of our AZZA Trio’s or some of the larger stencils.
Creating the stamped images on the page above I used the AZZA large stamp above. First I stamped the spider web on the left placing a sheet of paper over the photo so I didn’t stamp onto the photo.
I then stamped the same spider web onto plain paper and blocked the first image with that cut out image before I stamped the second spider web.
I then stamped the two little spiders. This is where the Stamping plate is so handy, I had to stamp them quite a few times to get them dark enough that you didn’t see the ‘web’ lines through them.
If you would like to make a Mini-album like this one or the one in my previous blog do get hold of your Consultant for a class.
Don’t forget the Masterclasses in Ballarat, Sydney and Perth coming up later in the month and beginning of November. You will get a pre-release stencil to work with and will be shown how to take your decorations to the next level. Christine Houbrechts will be coming over from Belgium to spend some time with us. I can’t wait to see her again. Don’t miss out on any classes in November with your Consultant either – she will have been at our annual get-together and will have spent a few days with Christine. Classes will be full of new techniques on decoration and of course our 2019 Christmas products.
I’ll end with two lovely layouts I came across on the net that I wanted to share with you.
I love the tones in the layout above using the AZZA New York stencil and the Home Sweet Home themed products. The decorations are done so well, connecting all the elements.
This 4 x 4 page appealed to me too, lovely use of inking and the simple decorations using the Winter Song cutting dies and AZZA pearls:
Enjoy the new products.
