Holidays are over ……..

 

Welcome to the New Year and oh so many photos to scrap from Christmas and New Year Celebrations.  Some of you will still be on holiday, Australia only goes back to school at the end of January, so photo opportunities abound.

I have locked in 2 classes in January, normally I would only have one, but my Ladies are home and ready to scrap.

Friday, 12th January and Wednesday, 24th January – if you would like to come along to a class please let me know as there are limited spaces.  If you wold like some of the new January stock to collect at class do let me know as soon as possible so I can order it for you and have it waiting.  Our January catalogue is now online:

AZZA January Catalogue

There is also always a ‘Clearance Sale’ in January, I will let you know those details as soon as possible.  AZZA only opens next Monday, 8th January so I am sure Sale details will be available soon after that.

Our Autumn Promenade theme this month brings with it all the Autumn hues and of course leaves, pumpkins and hedgehogs!

To begin with our Autumn Promenade Large stamp set:

Above, a lovely page created with the Fairy stencil using the stamp set and Autumn papers.  Below a close-up of a decoration by Robin Francoise, Europe.  She has also used one the the new AZZA Embossing Folders – Mosaic.

For those of you that like something that you can use with any theme throughout the year, you will love the Theme kit MOSAIC and SQUARE products that have been released in Australia this month.

Mosaic Theme Kit:

KIT3011_500.jpg

Kit 3011- $70.00

This Kit is great as it comes with a booklet to give you ideas on how to use the product, it features the next stencil that AZZA will release, Marine.  All items other than the booklet are available individually.

I have used the decoration stencil above on my page created with the Fairy stencil.  I used the AZZA Cutting Die CUSHION FRAMES and  BAROQUE FRIEZE as I thought they went well with the Fairy stencil shapes.

The Mosaic Mini stamps and the ‘Squares’ stamps are lovely as they too can be used on any page.  Great to fill in that corner between photos.  Used as a single stamp or collection of three in a line.

Autumn Countryside – $9.90

I would also like to show you the cork sheets AZZA now have in stock.

PAP0102_500.jpg

AZZA Cork Adhesive A4 Sheets – 3 in a pack.

There are two colours and they can be used with the Big Shot, Cuttlebug or similar machine to create your own decorations.  They are ‘adhesive A4 sheets’ so easy to get onto the page too.  They work well with the AZZA Cutting Dies.

Hilary has played with a few using the Patchwork Cork:

In the page above the cork has been used together with paper, the cork gives a nice texture to the page.  The new MARINE stencil has been used, coming soon to Australia.

The above page shows how the cork can be used with the Cutting Dies and as a mount for the lace figurines.  The small cork ‘star’ is the centre of the shape cut and used in the centre of the page.

Below is a close-up of a coloured lace figurine mounted on paper and cork.

A lovely close-up of Audrey Vast’s decoration with figurines which have not been coloured, mounted on paper.  Lovely and fresh.

I know many of you have the AZZA Cutting Die ‘Tree and Leaves’ – here it has been used for decoration on a page created with the AZZA Fairy stencil.  The Mosaic embossing folder has been used on the paper to give it texture.

8cac03ef8f71ed7b77ff6f1bce4c4c6e.jpg

Lastly two beautiful creations for some inspiration on your Christmas pages by Robin Francoise.  Here she has used some of the AZZA Christmas products and the wooden frames that match the Fairy stencil.

Happy New Year

As Christmas has been celebrated for another year, we look forward to the beginning of 2018.

Happy-New-Year-Images-2018-HD-1

I would like to thank everyone for their support during 2017, it has been fun putting together blogs that I think will inspire everyone to get their photos onto a page so that memories can be preserved in the most delightful way.

Thank you to all the wonderful Ladies out there across the world who have allowed me to use their beautiful creations to share on my blog.

I would also like to thank the Ladies that have attended my classes over the year, I always enjoy our mornings together and am so happy when each one of you leave with a page that will go into your albums for your family and friends to enjoy over years to come.

My last ‘thank you’ goes to my International Customers who have found me online.   I do hope you have enjoyed your AZZA products and have learnt something new with each blog I post.  Always remember I am available for any advice or help using the products.

Lovely page by Janice using AZZA Marshmallow stencil

Another of Janice’s pages created after a play with chalks and inks.

Three pages created by Sue in class using the same stencil – AZZA stencil ‘Objective’ – how different they all are!!

IMG_4972

GAB733_500-1-400x400

AZZA Objective stencil – GAB 733

Here is a video clip by Dominique Spirlet creating a page with the AZZA ‘Objective’ stencil.  She not only shows you how to use the stencil but her decorations are beautiful.  She shows us how to bring stamped images to life and create a little story with our decorations.

Clip on creating a page with AZZA Stencil Objective

Do pop along to a class near you if you haven’t been already.  They are lots of fun and you can learn so much.  Ask your Consultant about the Chalking and Inking classes where you can perfect your techniques.

Lots and lots of photos will have been taken over the past few days and even more over the next few days, it seems such a waste to leave them in your camera or computer where they cannot be enjoyed to the fullest.

Here is a page I have created using the new AZZA Fairy stencil and the new AZZA Christmas products but with my 2010 Christmas photos.  Those of you who have children that have grown up will understand why I do not have many recent photos as when the camera pops out they seem to disappear.  Especially the boy child!!!  This Christmas I have taken more of the ‘Fur Babies’ but I could not believe it, even they do not like the camera.

IMG_2418.jpg

My ‘Fur Baby’ Thembi

Page by Lyn Holmes, Australia.  AZZA Fairy stencil

I have used most of the selection of Christmas products on the page, the Silhouette figurines, the Decoration stencil, the wooden frames, the stamps and cutting dies not forgetting the lovely Festive pearls and ribbon.  The figurines and wooden frame have been coloured with ink.

IMG_4955

Remember always to bring your stamped images to life with chalks or inks.  Here I have used the chalk pencils:

img_4959.jpg

Enter a caption

Once you have cut your image out and stamped it then you can use your chalk pencils to add colour and your chalk stumps for the blurring.  These you can buy either individually or in a set of 10 with various sizes.  Why not share a packet between friends.

Catalogue – Chalk Stumps

IMG_4960.jpg

Dominique Spirlet has also created a page using the AZZA Fairy stencil.  Note how she colours her Fairy Figures before cutting them out of the sheet.  These figurines are fun to use, they come in white so it is easy for you to colour them to the tone needed for your page.  For those of you that don’t like spending time on decorating, these are the way to go.  So easy to colour, cut and place on your page.  The figurines will always match the stencil they are released with.

PAP1079_500-400x400.jpg

AZZA Silhouette Figures Fairy

Clip on creating a page with AZZA Stencil Fairy

I also created a page using the other side of the Fairy stencil:

azza 1

Page created by Lyn Holmes, Australia using the AZZA Fairy stencil

Now I know the ‘heavier’ photo is to the top of the page (we always suggest the ‘heavier’ photo be to the bottom of the page) but with this set of photos this was the best layout.   I have used a small figurine and a wooden frame for the decoration.  The paper colour I had did not quite match the photos on the page so I used TWO AZZA inks to blend the colours in the decoration to match the photos.

IMG_4966

With no family here in Australia Christmas it is a quiet time for us so I had time to give my chalks some loving care.

How many of you have chalks that look like this?

img_5029-2.jpg

 

To give your chalks some loving care, place the broken chalk in a small bowl and crush it to a powder.

IMG_4991.jpg

Add a little water – literally a drop at a time to just to get it to a paste.

Place it back in the chalk tray.

IMG_4994.jpg

And leave it to dry.

IMG_5028.jpg

It might not look as pretty, but it works perfectly.

IMG_5041.jpg

To prevent the chalks breaking in the first place, when you buy them place a few sheets of cardboard under them so when you are using them (pressing down) there is no ‘give’ below them.

IMG_5042.jpg

That is all I have for you today so it is ‘Farewell’ for the year.

IMG_2426.jpg

Have a wonderful celebration seeing the new year in, take lots of photos and we will meeting again in 2018.

Our December stencil was ‘FAIRY’:

GAB735_500-400x400.jpg

 

This is a beautiful page created by Deb Byrne, AZZA Team Leader in Tasmania.  Deb has used the ‘Fairy’ stencil, a stamp from the AZZA large stamp set ‘Happy Holidays’, the cutting die ‘Christmas Wreath’, the decoration texture stencil ‘Return of the Swallows’, the embossing folder ‘Icicles’ and a few of the AZZA ‘Festive pearls’.

Created by Deb Byrne, AZZA Team Leader, Tasmania

The embossing stencil ‘Icicles’ which Deb has used is a great purchase as it can be used with any theme, so too is the embossing stencil ‘Return of the Swallows’ which links up with the ‘Return of the Swallows’ decoration texture stencil she used on this page.

Hilary coloured both the ribbon and the pearls on her card below with an alcohol pen.

DSC_0480

Created by Hilary Hamilton, AZZA Victoria Team Leader

To create this card Hilary has used a combination of 3 AZZA cutting dies, AZZA paper, the festive pearls and AZZA glitter.  Hilary has used one of the ‘Sewn Squares’ dies that have been out for a while, together with the ‘Christmas Wreath’ die and the new ‘Christmas Trees’ cutting die.

DOE083_500.jpg

AZZA Cutting Die – SEWN SQUARES

Note these are ‘SEWN’ squares so the colour of the underlying paper shows through as stitches.

Hilary also used the second set of Christmas cutting dies released in Australia this month, the ‘Christmas Trees’:

I_DIE076_500.jpg

AZZA Cutting Dies – CHRISTMAS TREES

Below are a few decorations she has made with them.

Glitter tags

Hilary used the AZZA double sided glued paper, this is a clear sheet so the colours of paper underneath the glitter or cutting die will show through.  It is not white like the normal Jack paper.

ADH-1061.jpg

$14.50

The AZZA Christmas stamps ‘Happy Holidays’ has two different wreaths and two smaller stamps.

I_TAM1021_500.jpg

AZZA Large Stamp set – HAPPY HOLIDAYS

These stamps have been used together with the new stencil ‘Fairy’ on the pages below.

916e1984dbb70c822cf082d1e46cde81.jpg

AZZA Europe.

Below is a very simple AZZA page, but beautiful in the simplicity.  The wreath stamp has been used on the paper cut outs.  Beautiful chalking finished off with the Festive Pearls.

c8cd4da9e44ef2c3b58aef958b49350d.jpg

AZZA Europe

The page below has used the AZZA cutting die ‘Christmas Wreath’.  As you can see, the purple paper lies between the sections of the decoration.  The ribbons look like they have been stamped, cut out with the AZZA cutting die, coloured and then 3D onto the page.

23231384_10210565603871443_2340359939108320045_n.jpg

The second Christmas set of stamps released in December was ‘Father Christmas’ Workshop’.  I showed them used on cards in my last blog, here  Hilary has made some name tags for the Christmas table.

TAM0051_500-400x400.jpg

AZZA Large Stamp Set – FATHER CHRISTMAS’ WORKSHOP

DSC_0470

Created by Hilary Hamilton, AZZA Victoria Team Leader

To make the tags Hilary has once again used the ‘Sewn Square’ cutting die and then folded it in half  – a perfect size for these tags.  To get the glitter around the edges of the stamped images Hilary used the matching cutting die to cut out the same shape and then slightly off-set the stamped image so the glitter could sit on the edge that the stamped image did not cover.  She has used alcohol pens to colour in the images and the lace figurine.

Now see the stamps used together with the new ‘Fairy’ stencil on a page.

So whether your page is blue, gold or the Christmas green and red these stamps can be highlighted to suit your colours and tones.

Christine Caparros created a beautiful double page using the AZZA Christmas products.

Note the ‘white’ diamond shape on the right is a ‘cut-out’ so when closed you can see the white wreath on the page on the left.

A few close-ups of her work:deco.jpg

Note how she has brought her stamped images to life.

Below is a wonderful idea for Christmas produced by Dominique Pfenning in Europe.

She has used both the ‘Christmas Wreath’ and the ‘Tree and Leaves’ AZZA cutting dies.

Now for a few non-Christmas pages using the Fairy stencil:

Just over a month until Christmas ………

With Christmas only a month away I am sure many of you have projects you want to complete to place under the Christmas tree for  ‘loved ones’.  A gift of an album, bound book or Accordion album are all priceless as the person knows just how much work/love has gone into the making of the gift.  (Hopefully)!!

Our Christmas range is due out next week and is beautiful, all products will be available to order in Australia from the 1st December.  Here are a few examples of cards made with the Christmas theme from the AZZA Swiss page:

22688658_889583064529893_62277683742762909_n.jpg

The ‘wreath’ you see on the cards is an AZZA Cutting Die, the elves are part of the Christmas theme kit of stamps and cutting dies.

I_DIE073_500.jpg

AZZA Cutting Die ‘CHRISTMAS WREATH’:  DIE 073 – $38.00

Another new AZZA Cutting Die used on the cards is our AZZA ‘GIFT TAGS’ set.

AZZA Cutting Die ‘GIFT TAGS’:  Die 077 – $25.00

22852928_890891281065738_6557590011267794943_n.jpg

The ‘cut-out’ on the card above is also an AZZA Cutting Die: ‘Winter Windows’

I_DIE058_500-400x400.jpg

These are used together with the AZZA ‘Lantern’ Cutting Die which is great for Christmas decorations.

I_DIE051_500-400x400.jpg

AZZA Cutting Die ‘LANTERN’:  Die051 – $75.00

A beautiful example from ID Scrap whose work I share so often:

If you received the special edition of the Scrap & Moi last year you will have this little stamp of Santa already.

15167504_1276867845698021_6298231982156645876_o.jpg

The finished size of the lantern is 8cm x 14cm.

Lanterns can also be made for Halloween as seen by these samples shared on ‘Cartes et scrap couleur lavande’ on Facebook.

…. and a lovely ‘off the page’ idea for the Cutting Die ‘Gift Tags’.

DIE058_500.jpg

Here is a page I had a bit of fun with.  I used the new ‘Objective’ Stencil and the new ‘Tropical’ Decoration stencil.  I am sure many of you have the figures I have used which were from the older ‘Cocktail’ theme.

AZZA Stencil Objective

Page by Lyn Holmes, Australia – Objective Stencil.

Note how I have used TWO frames mounted together to tie the colours together.  This creates a great effect.

IMG_3899

Sue Talbot created a similar page in class using the Objective stencil and a double frame.

The frame can highlight decorations, a photo or a title.  Below I have used stamped images, one of which I have made 3D for texture on the page.

And don’t forget you can rotate your frame too.

IMG_3901

When cutting out your frame you are left with a nice square and another form of a frame, these can be used on the same or another page.

The next page I created using the new ‘Evasion’ Stencil.  I have used the decoration stencils that come with the ‘Souvenir’ kit, they are beautiful.

I have also incorporated a wooden frame – AZZA has a few different types and a new wooden frame will be coming out next month to match the new stencil.

PAP1202_500-400x400.jpg

These wooden frames are a great buy, they are only $13.00 and look how many frames you get.  You will find them under ‘Decorating Products’ on the website. Again, they can be used with a photo, title or decoration in them.

Another page I created with the Evasion stencil, this time using the AZZA ‘Photography’ stamps and die cuts.

Page by Lyn Holmes, Australia – Evasion Stencil

Note how I have chalked the light brown paper to tone it in with the red paper and photos I have used. I used red paper for one of the decorations and white for the other,  just to keep a balance.  As you can see, this stamp can be used to place a title on the page or for a bit of journalling.  I love these stamps and cutting dies as they can be used with any theme on a page.

Below is a beautiful page created by Deb Byrne, our Tassie Consultant using the Evasion stencil.

Deb also created two pages using the new AZZA ‘Souvenir’ Scrap Kit:

Look how different the two pages look.

Deb has used stamps from the ‘Holiday Club’ and ‘Sea and Boat’ theme:

TAM758_500-400x400.jpg

TAM 758 – $9.90

These little Micro stamps are very reasonably priced at $9.90.

Ruby Stamp Set ‘Camping Club’ – $13.50

TAM3015_500-400x400.jpg

Ruby Stamp Set ‘Holiday Club’ – $13.50

I also created a page with the ‘Souvenir’ AZZA Scrap Kit:

azza:LynHolmes 5.jpeg

What I have tried to show here is how you can keep your photos large on the page if you wish.  Ladies often look at the stencil and say ‘My photos won’t fit’, so in both the Objective layout above and this one I kept the photos almost at the 6 x 4 size, not cutting too much off.  Always place you photos behind the stencil when you are deciding and see how many of the ‘gaps’ you have to use to keep your photos larger.

Below is a layout by Sabine Lebrun, using the Mauritius stencil.  I wanted to show how she has kept her photos large on the page and finished off the shapes with decoration.

Below a page using the AZZA Aqua stencil keeping the photos larger.

To end, a layout with an older stencil and a layout not needing a stencil at all.

3fd884d15b481842a26bd31ba78203fb.jpg

Chantalouscrap posted this beautiful layout using the older AZZA Sofia-Lima stencil, sadly no longer available.  Do pull yours out and enjoy it again.

f0aa0ff28d36929f68ab99e713003c3f.jpg

Mimouscrap provides out last layout using no stencil but AZZA decoration.

If you are new to AZZA or need some inspiration or just want to work with the product to see how you like it, please get hold of one of our Consultants and pop along to a class.  They are fun as you are scrapping with a group and there is always lots of laughter.

IMG_3795

Liz Young created this layout in class this week using the AZZA Orion stencil and the ‘Tree and Leaves’ cutting die.  Note how the decoration was cut from two different colours of paper to bring some interest and balance to the page.  The lighter paper was then inked with the green to tone it down and the green inked with a lighter colour.

IMG_3796

To leave on a funny note, my Cuttlebug was sitting on my kitchen counter at home as I was clearing the table and a friend of my daughter asked her if it was my pasta machine!!

Happy scrapping’ ….. and I will bring you our Christmas range next week.

Honey, I’m home ……….

Having had a wonderful 7 weeks in Europe, I am home and wow – what a lot of new AZZA products available in Australia.  With Christmas around the corner we have new Christmas themes to look forward to playing with too.

Classes in Turramurra, New South Wales will be held on Friday 17th November and Wednesday, 29th November.  Do contact me if you would like to come along and find out more about our AZZA products.

In October the AZZA Evasion stencil was released in Australia.

Evasion

EVASION – GAB 730

Herewith a few samples that I have found on the internet to share with you.

c493a68dc87c1619f10a50667eb3b507.jpg

The page above has been created by idscrap, in Europe.  A very simple, clean page.  She has used the AZZA Die Cut ‘Tree and Leaves’ for her decoration.

631e5bd69af7b0942bfb77bccc30bcd3.jpg

The page above is full of fun.  Decorations were created with the new Ruby Stamp set ‘CAMPING CLUB’ below.

The theme of the Decoration stencils, stamps and figures this month are ‘SEA AND BOAT’ and ‘CLUB AND TROPICAL’.  These are great for all the holiday photos you need to get onto a page!!

TAM3016_500-400x400.jpg

‘Camping Club’ – Tam 3016.  $13.50

The page below has been created using the new ‘Photography’ theme products.  The Large Stamp set and the Embossing Folder.

TAM0045_500-400x400.jpg

There is an AZZA Cutting Die that goes with this Large Stamp Set.

EMB026_500-1-400x400.jpg

Embossing Folder – ‘Photography’.  $12.00

The ‘Photography’ Theme products are excellent to add to your stock as they go with any theme on the page.

The page below was created by Sabine Lebrun, as you know I love her work.  For decoration she has used paper, AZZA texture stencil and the AZZA ‘Tree and Leaves’ Cutting Die.

d2eccf7dd0595c833ce86fdfae8a0d54.jpg

The A5 AZZA Texture stencil ‘Tree Texture’ has been very popular.

A5 Tree Texture stencil – $12.00

Below is a lovely creation from Nadege Delcour, Europe using the Evasion stencil.

The page below is created with the Evansion stencil using only one photo – how different it looks,  a great look for a Title page too.  Celine has used the Large Stamp Set (Shown above)  and Cutting Die from the ‘Photography’ Theme.

19030602_820443491443851_3387041575735013224_n.jpg

A set of pre-cut pages come with the Evasion stencil.  Herewith a layout using the pre-cut pages.

ALB960_500.jpg

AZZA Evasion Pre-cut pages – $23.00

116650372.jpg

On the above layout 2 photos have been used almost whole, without using the smaller sections of the stencil.  Often Ladies in my class will ask if the photos suit the stencil.  Generally you can always work with your photos and the stencil you have chosen by taking time to decide where to place them.  As you can see from these layouts I have chosen to share with you, you can use more, smaller size/shape photos on a page or as above and below, only two photos.

116654547.jpg

The photo above shows the back of the ‘front’ pre-cut page.  Below is the second page.

116650380-1.jpg

The decorations below were created with the Decoration stencil from the ‘Souvenir’ Kit which is available in Australia this month.  Unfortunately this Decoration stencil is only available in this kit, it is not available on its own.

c2710d43c25c7e76a3654f3efe509cef.jpg

 

The AZZA November stencil is a kit:  AZZA Scrap Kit:  Souvenir.

19990430_1411374078899103_7937547803059761861_n.jpg

AZZA Scrap Kit ‘Souvenir’ – KIT 947.  $70.00

 

The kit consists of an album, illustrated sheets, 1 sheet with silhouette figures, 1 large decorative stencil (used on the page above), The Souvenir stencil 30 x 30 and 6 album pages.

Herewith a few samples created with the Souvenir stencil.

The first two creations are from Deb Byrne, our Tassie Consultant and Team Leader.  Deb lives in Tranmere.  Deb has been with Azza since March 2014 – since this time her business has grown from strength to strength and this is mainly due to her skills and her personality.  Deborah would love to share her passion with you – give her a call or an email, she would love to help you!

Deb has used the AZZA sand in keeping with the theme of the page and to add texture.  She has also used our new little stamp set ‘Beach cabins’ on her page below.  You can colour these little cabins to tone in with your page.

Page created by Christine Rave, Europe with AZZA Souvenir Stencil.

Below a page created by Hilary Hamilton, our Team Leader down in Victoria.  Hilary lives in Inverleigh and holds classes on a regular basis.  In this layout Hilary has kept two portrait photos almost whole and completed her layout with paper and a simple stamped image.  She has used the AZZA ‘Elegant Flowers’ stamp set and Cutting die.

Lastly a striking page by Nadege again, using the Souvenir stencil and decorations with the Souvenir decoration stencil.  Nadege Delcour has a Facebook page too:

And now for a bit of ‘Christmas Spirit’.  With Christmas around the corner our Christmas products are about to hit Australia.  These products can be used for both Scrapbooking and to create beautiful cards.  Here are a few samples of cards, it is almost time to ship off those overseas cards so there is no time to waste if you are making your own.

The first set of cards were created by Celine Henchoz (we saw a page created by her earlier):

22769589_890891281065738_6557590011267794943_o.jpg

 

22769616_890891231065743_163748647229330160_o.jpg

The second set of cards I found on the Swiss AZZA page.

22688658_889583064529893_62277683742762909_n.jpg22552399_889583057863227_1465417818412664366_n.jpg

More on these products closer to their release in December.

I always like to include one layout that is in the AZZA style but does not need a stencil to create.  Once again this is a page by Nadege Delcour.  She has used chalking to finish off the page, then both a Decoration stencil and 3D figures, note the little dots to represent sand and to tie the figures together.

21761847_1393732330696320_1801434352274796177_n.jpg

To end the blog I wanted to share with you a little gem of a page from Sabine Lebrun using the AZZA Orion stencil.

23119925_10210435146251096_8513202761148355145_o.jpg

I just love the colours on the page and her gentle decorations that bring it all together.  The little leaves are from the Decoration stencil duo ‘Nature’:

AZZA Decoration stencil Duo ‘Nature’ – $15.00
