Where did the last 4 months go???

I am not quite sure where the first quarter of the year went, but here I am back on track. I can’t believe my last post was December last year – amazing how life sends a curved ball and suddenly there are not enough hours in the day!

I have quite a bit to cover as AZZA has been rolling along.

Their most recent release was the AZZA Glasgow stencil and the Shadows decoration products. These products were used at the European Scrapping retreat earlier in the year so there are a lot of lovely photos in Cyberspace.


The stencil Glasgow was released with two new colours Oatmeal and Prairie. Papers, ribbons, Resin dots and cord are available in these colours. The page below showing the new colours in page, papers, cord and inks was created by Jill Attrill, AZZA Consultant in Victoria. Jill has also used the Shadows texture stencil and an image from the Silhouette Figure sheet.

The Glasgow stencil was released with pre-cut pages and a beautiful Focus book full of ideas for interactive pages. Interactive pages are wonderful to gather lots of photos into one page set and they also add fun to an album. Jennie Banks, AZZA Consultant in Townsville created this beautiful set of pages below. Jennie has used the Shadows Texture stencil on her page using a few different colour of inks to tone in with the photos.


Hilary Hamilton created the following set of pages with photos of Birdsville in Queensland. Hilary has used the lovely little stamp and die set ‘All Aboard’ on her page: TAMDIE 018


If you are interested in learning about interactive pages, contact your AZZA Consultant or contact me and I can put you in touch with someone in your area. If there is not a Consultant in your area, we have a few Consultants that run online classes. Pages can also flip vertically, below a lovely layout by AZZA Europe using the AZZA Die Country Outing: DIE 297.


I loved this die and the Easter die that was released at the same time. I had fun creating a few Easter pages and created the page below using the AZZA Brooklyn stencil and the dies. I used a ‘pom pom’ for my bunny tail, a pom pom from the AZZA Pom Pom packets which I am sure you all have tucked away somewhere. This was a vertical double page, the two inside pages shown below.

The patterned paper I used is perfect for any theme on the page and comes in both the green and beige shades so can be used with almost any photos: PAP 0241. Remember the shades of the colours on the page can be altered with a little AZZA inking. These papers have also been used on the pages below.

The second Easter page I created using the smaller A6 Alphabet stencil that AZZA released earlier in the year: GAB 1208. Hilary used this stencil on her ‘Just add water’ page above.


On the page below I used the Alphabet stencil above for my title. I used the Bunnies both as the bunny itself, but I also used the ‘negative’ die cut to add the bunny shadows to my patterned paper. The Easter eggs are also fun, I chose to keep them in one colour on this layout, but colours can be added within the patterns on the egg. I used this method in the layout above, only choosing to use the little stars as I didn’t want it to stand out too brightly in the decoration.

The layout above was created with the new AZZA A4 stencil Budapest. I used it towards the top of the 30 x 30 page, then flipped it over onto the lower part of the page as seen below. The A4 stencils are very versatile as they can be used on any size page with ease.

Deb Byrne, AZZA Consultant in Hobart created this lovely page below with the A4 Budapest stencil on a 30 x 30 page.

Jennie Banks, AZZA Consultant in Townsville created this lovely page above, pulling out the layout with a beautifully chalked border, pen lines and Resin dots.

The quick and easy Silhouette Figures have been used on Deb and Jennie’s pages, do look at the selection in the online shop: place ‘Silhouette figures’ in the search bar and they should all pop up. They have been created in the Kraft colour so they will fit with any colour on the page, but are also easily coloured with the AZZA inks. Use a white ink first, let it dry, then apply the colour you are wanting for your page. More than one colour can be used on the words too.

Layout created by Heather Fields, Queensland

Heather Fields created the layout above using the AZZA Candle dies. These dies are great for both Scrapping pages and cards.


Lovely card samples above by AZZA Consultants in Europe and I couldn’t help but share the cards Carole Pereira received from her clients for a ‘special’ birthday. Happy birthday Carole!


This lovely little AZZA stamp is very versatile for both the scrapping page and cards. The bees and butterflies can fill spaces and used with a little trail as Heather did so well on her page above. Inks, chalks and the Aqua pen can be used on all these images. Samples below for a little inspiration from AZZA Consultants in Europe.

Last weekend we celebrated Mother’s Day. AZZA is running a competition until the end of the month to celebrate ‘Mother’. Get your photos printed and get scrapping this weekend. Pages need to comprise of AZZA products only and are to be sent to enquiries@azzaworld.com.au or to your AZZA Consultant who will forward them on. Pages can be any size of AZZA page. Entries need to be in by the end of the month.

Deb Byrne created the page above for a little inspiration for you all. Deb used the AZZA Brooklyn stencil, the newly released Shadows embossing folder and dies, the Gentle Spring dies (yellow leaves), Silhouette figures, Resin dots and my favourite linen ribbon.


That’s all for now, have so much more to show you but will leave it to the next blog.

Happy Scrappin’
