AZZA Australia have added some ‘War Memorial’ stamps and a die set to their collection. Many of us visit war memorials both at home and overseas and every year we celebrate Anzac Day where many of us visit a memorial or a march. The products are listed as ‘LEST WE FORGET’ in the shop.
Whilst in Ballarat a few years ago, we visited two memorial sites, both a poignant reminder of the past. Last year we visited the ANZAC Memorial in Albany, here are a few samples used on my pages – full page reveal only next month.
I also used part of the Poppy die:
The Australian Flag is also available but there are very limited numbers as they have been so popular.
While we are going down memory lane I would like to share with you a few lovely layouts to remind you to dig out your older templates and have a play.
Heather created this beautiful page using the AZZA Scrap Kit: Nature. This is the old Reve template that so many of you love. It is great for a quick and easy layout. Heather has used the new AZZA Ring dies on the page.
In the set of rings above you get two different size rings – 3mm and 6mm rings. You can have such fun with these on the page. Keep all the extras you cut in a box and you will soon have a selection to choose from when you are scrapping. There is also a 5mm set available to purchase.
A striking page created by Judy above using the Eclipse stencil. Judy used the Nutcracker stamp and die set and the 2020 Christmas papers on the page.
The Eclipse stencil is only available in the Studio pack, the stencil duo has now sold out in Belgium.
The layout above was created with the AZZA Marine template. Below it has been used for a double-page layout.
Anita has used the Feather themed decorations released last month for her decorations.
I also like this single photo layout using the Loire template and cutting die with the ‘Feather’ papers.
I have seen quite a few samples of the layout above created with the Boston template – all based on the original page by Chantel Rapin.
Martine has used the Minerals papers released this month and the Art and Crafts die that I use often. Below are two other pages, my Boston template is out and ready for me to give this a go.
Chantel’s original page which has inspired all the other pages:
If you would like to try this, it is using only half the template, then the template is flipped to get the same/similar image on the other side of the page. Martine tells us where to begin – Boston needs to be on the back of the template and on the bottom left. Have fun working it out.
Below a lovely page by Fiona McKay created with the AZZA Scrap Kit: Souvenir
For those of you creating pages with photos of your children, do remember that the Decoration stencil in the kit has the English words ‘Once upon a time’. I think we often forget this.
Dominique Spirlet has created a video showing you how to create a page with the Mineral stencil released this month:
And a beautiful page by Heather Fields in Queensland using the A4 Mineral template on a 30 x 30 scrapping page. Heather has used the Materials and Texture texture stencil for the decoration on her paper.
Lastly, an ‘Off the page’ project. Susan in Western Australia created this beautiful A4 page to go into a frame. Susan used the AZZA 20th Anniversary template that was included in the latest Scrap & Moi magazine. She also used the stamps in the 20th Anniversary box set.
Until next time,
