As the new year draws near I would like to thank you for your support throughout 2019 and hope that I have been able to inspire you with some ideas for your pages and cards along the way.
I would like to wish you all a very joyful 2020 with lots of free hours to spend in your craft rooms around the globe.
We have seen some beautiful Christmas cards over the last month so to kick off I will show you some of the lovely table decorations you can create for your family feasts you may have as you celebrate the coming of the New Year. This lovely collection below was created by Sue Talbot our AZZA Consultant in Sydney. Sue used her AZZA Circle dies to cut all the circles out (makes life a lot easier) and the AZZA Christmas Ambiance cutting dies. She has used Christmas stickers to finish them off, you could also use your AZZA Alphabet stencils and place names on the little decorations for place settings.
Sue Talbot is our AZZA Consultant in Castle Hill in New South Wales. Sue creates beautiful pages and holds classes in her home. We do not have many Consultants in and around Sydney, but if you would like a class please contact Sue. Her details are on our webpage.
A few of Sue’s pages below using AZZA Orlando, Boston and Berlin Trio stencils.
I do love the AZZA lantern cutting die, it can be used for all occasions. AZZA releases various ‘window’ dies that fit the lantern over the year. Here are a few samples from AZZA, Europe.
The AZZA Christmas Star ‘window’ from last year’s range is still available.
The Alpine ‘window’ is a lovely winter scene:
The stamp used was one sent out with the Scrap & Moi magazine. You can see the AZZA embossed paper was used to make this lantern; I do love the texture.
I am sure you will all have many, many Christmas photos to scrap so here are a few pages to give some ideas. The first page was created by Sabrina using AZZA Celestial stencil and Christmas stamps from last year. The chalking is beautiful.
Another lovely page from AZZA Europe using the same Celestial stencil and Christmas themed products from last year’s range.
AZZA Fairy stencil was another of my favourites:
AZZA Europe posted this lovely Single photo layout using the AZZA Verlaine stencil and last year’s Christmas range of products.
AZZA London Rio Special edition stencil.
AZZA Marine Stencil.
AZZA Aqua stencil.
The following pages were created by our Director/Regional Manager in Tasmania – Deb Byrne.
Deb created this page with the AZZA Bahamas stencil. She stamped her images onto an AZZA Wood sheet. Note how she has also used a Christmas image under a Resin pellet to highlight it. The Christmas tree stamp, Wooden sheets and Resin pellets are still available in the AZZA shop.
Deb also created the following page using the AZZA Scrap Kit Promenade and the latest Christmas themed products. She has embossed her paper with the Festive branches embossing folder and then used a little ink on the images to highlight them.
Deb also created this mini album above using the Arches Trio stencil. These are lovely little gifts and reminders of celebrations.
AZZA has a wonderful ‘Team of Two’ in Townsville: Sue Toogood and Jennie Banks. Sue has been with AZZA for 5 years and Jennie is about to reach her 10 year milestone.
Jennie created the following Christmas pages with the smaller 25 x 25 AZZA Shell stencil.
I also loved this page Jennie created with the AZZA Celestial stencil and last year’s Christmas products.
AZZA Australia will re-open on Monday 13th January. There will be a January new product release and the AZZA AUSTRALIAN SALE will also begin in January. Orders for the January product can be placed in the shop online but they will only be shipped the week of the 13th January.
The sale will only last until the end of the month. We have a few great items that are very low in numbers in the sale and these will be in a separate section as they will go very quickly. If you have any queries about the sale please contact your local Consultant.
Enjoy the last few days of 2019 – with all the cricket on I know I will get quite a bit of scrapping done. So hopefully you will see some of my Christmas pages in the new year.
Happy Scrappin’ and more importantly ……..
