Caramel and Vanilla to warm us up in Winter
This month is all about Bombay and Cashmere and the release of two new colours: Caramel and Vanilla, colours to warm us up this first month of winter.
The Studio is a perfect place to start if you want a few pages in the new colours, the stencil, Sketch sheet, papers and a sample booklet with ideas.
This beautifully serene page below by Jill Attrill in Victoria won the Consultant competition last month.
This colourful page by Heather Fields in Queensland uses the Cashmere stamp perfectly. What a lovely colour combination on the page.
And a simple page to show you that you don’t need to use all the curves, by Christine Houbrechts in Belgium. Christine has used the white Glitter paint through the Cashmere texture stencil for the images on her paper.
Double pages are also available in Vanilla and Caramel. Below a double page I created with the new products. I cut the front page following the stencil outline and moved the stencil across on the back page to show the line of inking.
I placed the die cut on the left on both the front and back page to match.
This stencil is also designed to create a cascade of photos on your page, so if you would like to give this a go, purchase the Focus booklet and a set of pre-cut pages to begin with. Instructions are in the booklet to create more.
Below a lovely page by Fiona McKay in Western Australia. Fi showcases the Cashmere products beautifully.
To highlight the design of the embossing folder, Fi lightly ran white ink over her paper once embossed.
And just in case you think Paisley is old fashioned, it seems it is very much ‘in’ again, so perfect timing on our behalf!! We see AZZA in all sorts of places!!
Lovely decoration by Sophie using the die cuts, the stamp, Glitter paint, Resin dot and AZZA cord.
On this page you can see Sophie has used the larger ‘square’ on the stencil for her cascade.
AZZA has released a set of three dies to match the stencil. Note: for the larger size you do need an A4 die cutting machine. This makes cutting your shapes easy!
You can also create your own little accordion sheet as seen below, again by Sophie. Thanks so much for giving us this idea.
Pascale shared with us endless ideas on how to use all the decoration products:
Lastly, a few card samples for you I found on Pinterest. I like to be able to credit the person who has created these so if you know, please let me know and I can add their name.
You can have so much fun cutting your own cards, the dies make it so easy. These cards have been made with the new AZZA mini collections. The first card has been cut with a fold down the right-hand side, the second is just the larger square cut and folded in half.
How cute is this little card created with the AZZA Mini Collection: Bearcubs
An apology to the AZZA Clients in Australia that have been waiting on their orders, mainly for the Top Ten Collector Collection. Our shipment has finally arrived in Australia, we have paid the duty and it is scheduled to arrive on Thursday. All backorders will be packed over the weekend and shipped on Monday. Once again, apologies but the delay was beyond our control.
