Suddenly Christmas is around the corner and the AZZA online shop will close for orders this Saturday, 11th December at 5pm EST. All orders placed in the shop after this date will be held and sent out when the shop reopens on Monday, 17th January.
I loved this Christmas card I saw online using the Arabian nights themed products.
Carole has used the newly release Star themed products for her card above. I love the new Diamond black iZink Glitter paint as a backdrop. I would suggest you do this on a separate piece of card and then mount it onto your Christmas card as the Glitter paint can cause the card to buckle if it is not a thick cardstock. Below Brigitte Langenfeld in Europe created this elegant card using the Star themed products too. The large Star in the centre is cut with the largest Star nesting die so the decoration star inside shines through.
Don’t forget the AZZA Nutcracker themed products, Christine Caparros shows some new ideas.
A little bit of fun on the page using the Micro stamp that comes with the Christmas edition of Scrap & Moi #08. This little car can be coloured in any shades. If you missed out on purchasing the die used behind the stamped image, the figures on the A4 Figure sheets are a good fit. These are on sale at the moment.
The Christmas edition of Scrap & Moi is now available to purchase as an individual magazine. The little micro stamp is rather cute. It can be coloured to suit your card or layout as shown below by Sylviane Khouri.
If you are still looking for Christmas gifts for scrapping friends or yourself, the AZZA Scrap kits are a great gift as they contain everything to get scrapping. For a simple stencil, possibly a friend new to scrapping or a younger person, the 25 x 25cm Discovery Scrap kit is perfect.
There are lots of 30 x 30 cm Scrap kits available. Do pop along to the shop and take a look.
Another great gift is the Disc binding album kit. With A4 embossed pages, they can be cut to any desired size. This kit is great value and the papers are exclusive and cannot be purchased on their own.
There are two EXPRESS kits on sale during the week leading up to Christmas. These kits are called express as they are quick and easy to create. The one above is an A4 album and comes complete with pages, covers, papers, decoration products and an instruction booklet. Unfortunately, the booklet is in French but there are good diagrams to follow. The second express kit is an Accordion album. These are such fun to make and can stand on a sideboard or dressing table so the photos can be seen all the time.
A subscription to Scrap & Moi is also a gift that will keep on giving throughout the year. There are two options – 4 regular magazines or include the 2 extra Special editions and receive 6 magazines throughout the year. I find these magazines give me so much inspiration as they cover layouts, mini albums and off the page projects.
Three lovely decoration close-ups from Sophie using the Star themed products, Sticker circles and Resin dots.
In this one, Sophie has combined the Stars with the Arabian Nights Texture stamp. She has also used the Diamond black iZink Glitter paint with the Star texture stencil.
This little relaxing decoration by AZZ’Art combining a few stamps from the Arabian Nights range and the die from the AZZA Relax theme.
Christine shows a close-up of the decoration on her page created with the AZZA Los Angeles stencil.
I also liked this page by Adeline Close, using only one photo. Adeline has used the Celestial stencil for her layout as it pairs so well with the stars. She has used the Starry night embossing folder. Do look at the Starry night products in the online shop as some are still available and on sale this week. I also love the look of the Vellum used on the page, cut with the Star nesting dies.
Isabelle has created her page with AZZA Los Angeles stencil and the Rising Sun texture stencil. the lovely little stamp is from the AZZA Silhouette range. I see this stamp used on so many pages as almost every image can be used with any theme on the page. The images create beautiful, delicate backgrounds for a decoration or they become the decoration on the page or papers.
Sue has used the birds from the stamp shown above, together with the Kyoto stencil and various Australiana products to create the page above. Sue also created the layout below with the Los Angeles stencil and Star themed products. Note how she has used vellum paper with the Star embossing folder and stuck it behind her biggest star.

Now for a little ‘Off the page’ Christmas fun: We all have old tins lying around – why not paint them white, silver or gold, give them a little bling with the iZink Glitter paints then have fun with the AZZA large Alphabet dies or any of the other relevant decoration products.
I made these two little lanterns having seen Christine’s beautiful one below. Using the AZZA patterned vellum and various AZZA decoration products your evenings could be lit up so beautifully. Great idea for table decorations for any special occasion.
You can see the stamps work well too.
If you purchased the Advent A4 paper block your Advent gifts should be looking like this with a few opened already. These little gift boxes can be used throughout the year, not only in December.
Do check out the SALE section in the AZZA online shop as many of the older Christmas products are on sale for this week.
All orders over $120.00 (excluding postage) will receive a Gift pocket as their Christmas bonus. This pocket is shown below and includes a Trio stencil, Mini album covers and a lovely pack of papers. The figures sheet is in French but these letters can be cut out individually and used in an English sentiment as shown by Lynette Garrett-Preston in the layout below.
Jennie Banks in Queensland created the layout below also re-arranging the letters on a Silhouette figures sheet into an English title.
