Keep calm and scrap on!

First day of the month and we present you with themes to scrap your wonderful holiday photos – we may be in ‘lock down’ but we can enjoy ourselves as we remember holidays past. Whether you went fishing or skiing there is something for you this month.

Our stencil of the month will be a very popular one – Zurich. I lived in Zurich for 7 years, wonderful memories and a lot of snow photos to scrap! A little later in the week I’ll show you the latest project with my photos in the snow!


The studio contains a few pages of the newest colour in our CLASSIC Essential range – Dolphin.
Page created by Deb Byrne, Tasmania. Australia

Deb has created this magnificent page above using the Zurich stencil, two stamps from the winter range and silhouette figurines. Note how Deb has used her Silicone stamping pad to get the reflection in the top left-hand corner decoration, it is beautiful. Both stamped images have been completed with chalks, inks and pens to bring them to life.

Christine has also used the little figurine in the bottom right-hand corner on her page below. Again, see how beautifully she has brought it to life with inks, chalks and pens. The little background of trees is created using the Decoration stencil, AZZA pompoms are just perfect for snow!

Christine has used the trees without the house – remember you do not have to use the image as a whole. Christine has also used the new transparent Resin dots released this month.

Deb’s second page was created with the ZURICH stencil but she used last month’s LOIRE themed products for her decoration and our very own AZZA Australia Figurine heading “Capturing the moment”. We have had a range of headings produced especially for us in a smaller size that is in keeping with the AZZA way of scrapping.

The beautiful LOIRE stamp is a must if you are a regular visitor to Europe and love to explore the history. Note how Deb has used the same stamp twice – using only part of it in her smaller ‘space’. She has chalked the papers beautifully to match the tones in her photographs.

A few of you have found it difficult to find our little headings – here is the link.

Hilary has created the beautiful page above, she has added a few perfect seagulls!

As you can see Zurich does not have to be all about the snow …. April brings a little bit of summer too. The AZZA River themed products released this month are just beautiful. Below Lauren has created a lovely double page with the Zurich stencil and the RIVER themed products. This is a double page, the front page has been cut with the shape of the stencil and the little photo of the duckling in the centre is actually on the back page, that shape has been cut out of the front page as can be seen further in the blog.

How cute is this little guy fishing ……..

With the page open, you can see the gap that has been cut out of the front page.

The shapes have been shaded in with chalks and the stamped images brought to life with chalk pencils and pens. If you do not have the chalk pencils you can always use your AZZA pompoms and your chalks to get colour into the smaller areas.

Zurich is a good stencil for multiple pages. Carole Rosso of Europe has created this multi-page layout below.

Lastly, a striking single photo page:

AZZA Europe

The Butterfly and Tags AZZA cutting dies have been used on this page.

Valerie has also used the Butterfly dies on the page above created with the Zurich stencil.

With Consultants being unable to hold classes, AZZA Australia has made all pages available to purchase in packs of 5 on their website. These can be posted directly to you so you don’t even have to go out to collect them. Please remember to nominate your Consultant when you place an order.

Pop along to our NEW PRODUCTS on the website and see what has been released in Australia this month.

To end, a video from Dominique Spirlet to show you how to use your Zurich stencil. Dominique always has something interesting to show us …

Happy Scrappin’
