Happy Easter

Normally we would all be out and about taking photos to scrap later in the year, but this year we are home scrapping photos from holidays we’ve been on before.

I don’t know about you, but when I scrap photos it takes me back to when they were taken and I enjoy the moments of being back with family or being in a place I have visited. Many happy, happy memories come flooding back.

For all those of you who are behind on your kids or grandkids albums, now is the time for a little ‘catch up’!!

As I mentioned to you before, I created a mini album that I saw in the AZZA Magazine Scrap & Moi, No 54. You can subscribe to the magazine for 4 regular editions a year or you can get a Gold subscription which includes two bumper issues. Unfortunately for Australia, it is all in French but as I always say, the pictures are in English.


This lovely mini album was created with the Loire stencil and is so easy to put together.


For the front page I mounted the card onto a transparent sheet. I have used the shape of the stencil to cut out the grey card and the white card. I used inks to match my set of photos and the Loire texture stencil for decoration. I then embossed a strip of the darker card I used and cut a frieze with the Loire die.

I used a light and dark colour page to match my photos and alternated the page colours.

I also added a few of the AZZA Circle stickers as per the sample in the magazine.

On this page I once again used the embossing folder through the middle of the grey card cut out. I also used the Stamp-die set Frosty lake on the page with a Copper circle sticker in the middle.


The page above has the strip at the top cut out so you can see the photo on the page behind. Make sure that the Frieze strip does not block out anything important on the photo behind.


If you don’t want to place a decoration on the bottom half of this page, you can include a second photo. The stamped image is from the stamp/die set released in Australia this month. They are fun for your winter holidays.

These lovely stamped images are so easy to ‘dress up’ to match your photos.

On the pages above I love the ‘shadow’ of the image on the page – great idea for the AZZA stamp/die sets.

I put my album together with a ‘Zutter’ and added a few ribbons.

This would make a perfect gift for someone special.

If you would like the instructions in English, do get in touch and I will send them out to you.

Don’t forget to use your AZZA products for your Easter baskets:
