    Hi Lyn, I had spoken to you before about a stencil.
    What I am asking is could you tell me how you did the Shell Stencil 25×25 it is the one you did with the sunset or sunrise, I need to know how you did that, I keep looking at it & trying to work it out.
    I do have the Shell Stencil. I just love it. If you can forward the information I could be very Thankful.
    Kind Regards. Cheryl Thompson.

      Hi Cheryl
      Is it the first one posted in the Gallery? If it is, it is not my page but I can tell you how to do it. The yellow shell shape is a cut out with the stencil – you will see that shape on the stencil. They have decorated it with photos, decoration and paper. The back page has the photos on it and the little orange triangle in the bottom right-hand corner. (Whatever colour you use for your top page do this triangle in the same colour). The top page is them attached to the bottom page with a Brad, you can see the brown dot – that will be the brad allowing you to swing the shell shape open to see the photos below.
      I do hope that helps and is the page you are talking about,
      Regards, Lyn.

        Hi Cheryl
        2 am this morning I was awake ….. and thought – Oh I should have told Cheryl that there is probably a small AZZA magnet holding the front shell shape in place. It will have been placed on the back of the front sheet (orange) and on the back of the brown page – probably towards the top end and middle of the shell shape. This way the shell will remain in place in your album. Regards Lyn

      • Cheryl Thompson says:

        Hi Lyn, I know that feeling, Oh I should have told, you should have not worry, but Thank you, for letting me know, I had done a lay out with that shell, using a magnet to keep it in place but I am still a bit confused, with that layout? I keep looking at it. But I have not started it yet, So bear with me, & please tell me if I am wrong. So the Shell is completely separate from the back page, So first of all you do the back page, with 4 photo’s, but the last photo on the bottom right is not a full photo, because that triangle sits in there, then you do the cut out of the shell, with paper of your choice, then you place the diffident photo’s on the shell, & dress it as it show’s. I understand if you tell me I am crazy, I am seeing a consultant here in Brisbane, & I told her that I am going 2 attempt it, all she said was good luck, I would like to see that, I said you wait, I can do this. Anyway thank you Lyn for your time helping me get though this very much appreciate. Cheryl.

        Hi Cheryl, I’m sad to hear the Consultant you are seeing did not offer to work through it with you. This is what they are supposed to do!! But, yes your explanation is good. With the shell in the front you could also cut the gaps in the shell ‘fan’ so you see the photos behind and only have the decoration going into the ‘windows’. This could be quite nice too. Yes, back page looks very plain and yes, keeping the ‘yellow’ triangle in the corner. You will need a brad to secure your top page to the back page (Seen as a chocolate dot on this page), AZZA has some nice ones with a 1cm top, on this top you can punch 1cm of any paper and place it onto of the brad to match your page. I have found a page with it open – please e-mail me on so I can send it to you. Cannot see how to attach it here.

  3. hello Lyn, we have enjoy the same time to the stage LA PALMYRE vith Bernard. I am so happy of this week and you?
    regards Florence

    • lynholmes says:

      Hi Florence, so sorry I have not been in touch but we got back to Australia and then had to prepare for our annual Conference of Consultants. We were showing them everything we learned in La Palmyre.

      It was wonderful to meet you and spend time together, thank you for all your help too, we greatly appreciated it.

      We do hope to attend again in the future, so we will get to see you all again. It was wonderful to meet the Ladies we had been in touch with but had never met.

      I have only just arrived home in Perth so can catch up on all the correspondence. The layouts with the new Christmas products are so wonderful I can’t wait to try them out myself. I do hope to find time this week to scrap and also write a blog.

      We must keep in touch, I will pop along to your blog too.
      Regards, Lyn

    I really want the stencil that I am seeing on the March page – Perfumes of the South – is it available to be shipped to the US? I have to get me some of these stencils! I came across these awesome pages everyone is doing on Pinterest – I was looking for different ideas and wow! These are amazing! I must get some!

    Hi. Love these style pages. I want to try them. What type of writing utensil do you suggest using to mark the photos? Dry erase does not wipe off, pen and pencil don’t wipe off, other marker pens do not wipe off, using the metal part of a mechanical pencil damages the pictures. I need advice as to what to do.
    Thank you
    Keri C.

      Hi Keri
      I am not sure if you got my reply or not, just going through my e-mail and not my blog.

      We sell an AZZA pen that does wipe off – it is actually a thin ‘whiteboard’ marker. To begin with it did wipe off all photos printed here in Australia (has never wiped off home printed photos) but sadly a lot of the shops have moved to cheaper quality paper and so the pen then will not wipe off.

      We also sell a white and blue pencil that will rub off any photos. I do hope this helps.
      Regards Lyn
