AZZA has released a Calendar Express kit this month. In the kit you will receive all the product you need to make the calendar and a pamphlet on how to go about it. If you would like some guidance ask your Consultant about a class you can join.
For the layout above I have used an enlargement. In the Express kit all the layouts use one 6 x 4 photo but you can always use two as I have in the layout below. This is a FUN project and a perfect gift for someone ‘who has it all’. The calendar does not have to begin with January, if a birthday is in June you can always begin the calendar from July to June the following year.
The second kit released this month and another great little project is the AZZA Express kit: Floral.
You have all the product to create a 12 page 20cm x 20cm album. The stencil Amsterdam can also be purchased on its own.
I have begun my album of Western Australian wildflowers. I love the newly released texture stencil Secret Garden, it is beautiful on the page.
Secret Garden is an A5 stencil so you can cover a larger space without having to move the stencil.
I have also used the new Floral Cutting dies which are a must for any collection.
They can be used in so many different ways. Here is a magnificent layout by Christine Houbrechts with photos of her trip to Australia. She has used the new Stockholm stencil and Floral theme decoration products.
The patterned seasonal papers are lovely too, the two tones are quite different so cover a lot of colours.
Also released this month are the Circle stickers. AZZA are not into bling at all, but these tie in with a lot of our ‘circle’ themed products and do not take over the page.
If you purchased the Universe cutting die – these stickers are a must.
The Ladies who receive the Mail Out will be receiving a sheet of these Circle stickers and I am sure they will have fun using them.
I created a layout for the Mail Out using the new Stockholm stencil, the Galaxy Seasonal patterned papers, Decoration stencil, Embossing folder and the Circle stickers. I also used the little stamp the Mail Out Ladies received before Christmas as they all go so well together.
I do like the Galaxy Seasonal patterned papers – they will be great for Heritage pages. They are also a pattern that can be used with any theme on the page.
I have also had fun with the Galaxy embossing folder used on both pages above. It creates a lovely texture on the page. Remember – as you can see on my page above – you don’t always have to emboss the whole piece of paper.
The new Embossing folder Floral is also beautiful on the page and on a card.
The Floral set of stamps are perfect for both card making and scrapping. Christine has used them on the page above and as you can see they were also used on the card together with the Floral embossing folder. A quick but lovely card to make.
Deb Byrne in Tassie created the page below with the Stockholm stencil and the Floral Cutting dies and stamps. She has used the stamps very delicately on her page, masking off part of the stamp (the watering can) to stamp only the small flowers to match her photos.
Deb used the new stamping tools to colour her stamp – they allow you to colour tiny parts of your stamps. If you would like to know more about these stamping tools contact your Consultant.
Don’t forget the AZZA Summer Sale – still on until Sunday – don’t miss out!
