Spring is here and in the Northern Hemisphere they can put all thoughts of winter behind them …. but before winter has gone (for a few months as our Australian winter is 3 months away) …. here are a few winter pages created with the AZZA Mineral (A4) stencil released in Australia this month. These pages show how the AZZA A4 stencils can be used to create a beautiful page on the 30 x 30 scrapping pages.
On the page above I also wanted to showcase the new iZink Glitter pastes that are now available through AZZA in Australia. I have used the Glitter paste through the stencil both left and right and also on the little fir trees from the Mineral Figure sheet and A4 Sketch sheet. I have coloured the horse with Alcohol pens to match the colour of the horses in the photos. I have also used the Mineral patterned papers.
Estelle has also used the iZink Glitter paste on her page above, she has used the silver. Three colours are available: Silver, Gold and Mother of Pearl.
On the page above Estelle has used the lovely new Mineral dies released this month too.
These look so lovely on the page and can be used for a title or decoration.
This stunning page by Jenny Finley shows the Frames on the page. Jenny has used the AZZA Vacation scrap kit to create her layout. This was Jenny’s entry into the Scrap & Moi competition.
The AZZA Micro stamp is still available, Jenny has coloured it in beautifully.
I have also used the dies on the page above. I used two sizes of the same die, I wanted to show the larger size (11cm) which is great for a bigger title. Once again, this layout shows how the Mineral Stencil can be used on a 30 x 30 page.
I created a front page for my layout:
You can see I have used the iZink Glitter paste over my inking to give the page a little texture. These Glitter pastes work beautifully through the AZZA Texture stencils. On the page below, I used it with the AZZA Texture stencil: Feathers.
Using the products released this month, Hilary created the page below. Those of you that have been an AZZA Client or Consultant for a while now will have the Decoration stencil Hilary has used on the page with the Gold Glitter paste. It makes for a stunning border.
The Basket special this month includes MDF covers and pages so that you can create a beautiful coffee table album. These would make a priceless gift for someone special.
The MDF covers can be decorated in so many ways. Anita has decorated paper and placed it on her cover, Hilary decorated the MDF cover itself. Both ladies have created a small flap with magnets to keep the album closed.
The Embossing folder is slightly thicker than the normal AZZA embossing folders so do be careful when using it. Hilary has used it together with the AZZA Large ink pad: Loft
You cannot see it above but the pre-cut pages have the holes for the Rings on BOTH sides. This way you can choose if you want them to flip out from the left or the right side of your album. It creates another dimension to your album. Hilary suggests that you number your pages so that when the album is flipped back you will know where the pages lie. The small AZZA Numbers cutting dies set is perfect for this. If you would like to make one of these albums please contact your Consultant. If you do not have a Consultant, contact AZZA and we will let you know where your closest Consultant is. We can also offer you online classes if there is not a Consultant near you.
Now for a few pages with the normal A4 pages, not the pre-cut ones.
Sue Talbot in New South Wales has been busy with her Wild Flower album. I used the Glitter paste in the lines top and bottom of the stencil. Sue shows how you can use your pens or cut some of your left over photo scraps. You could also chalk or ink these strips to create a border at the top and bottom of your page.
With the onset of COVID and clients not being able to get to classes with Consultants AZZA has created a selection of page/paper sets that can now be purchased. These are great for projects. Pop along to the shop and check out the colour combinations.
A lovely page by Deb Byrne highlighting the little ‘Plum’ Micro stamp:
With 2020 behind us and NO travel photos to scrap, Anita suggested a 2020 Mini album highlighting the events that did manage to go ahead throughout the year. I think this is a great idea. A sample of her album pages below:
Lastly, a page I just loved and wanted to share with you.
Nolwenn has used the AZZA Mineral stencil to create this 30 x 30 page. She has also used the new Cutting dies Mineral and AZZA Cutting dies: Sewing Ribbon.
These dies were highlighted in the latest newsletter. I created the page below using them both on a page of my boy, Pluto. The other cutting die I have used is from the 20th Anniversary box and of course the AZZA Alphabet cutting dies. The large Alphabet cutting dies are only available on Special order, contact your Consultant or AZZA direct if you would like to purchase a set. I used a little Gold Glitter paste on the large letter ‘P’ to match the paper from the 20th Anniversary box set.
Well, that should be enough to get you creating for now.
