Mudgeeraba Show

26 Jun

The fabulous country show at Mudgeeraba is on this weekend (29th and 30th June) and I am having a stall there for the first time.  I am pretty excited about it all and hoping that some of you will come and say hello.  I will have a few things there to sell, including the new products shown below, so if you would like to check them out, see me there.  Also, if you have been meaning to have a look at how the style is created, but haven’t made it to a workshop yet, call in and I’ll give you a quick run-through.

The new stencil that I must show you is called BAHAMAS.  It comes complete with a studio and is the first of a new series.  The two stencils in the duo feature one which is similar to a KIT of the type of Rev, Decouvre etc, while the second stencil is a little more complex.  The studio, as usual, devotes 3 pages to each stencil.  The difference with the way the new studios is marketed is that the studio comes complete with a pair of stencils inside the wrapping.  You will be able to purchase the stencil pair separately, but not the studio.  This means that if you want the studio, you have to buy it at the same time as the stencil – you can’t buy the stencil now and then later buy the studio as a separate item.

The Bahamas studio has some really interesting layouts for you to try.  I have completed one that I can show you now, and another is waiting for the finishing touches.

Of course, the man reason for making the page was to record the story of when my grandson discovered the delights of the bubble bath, but there is no harm in having fun while you do it!

(If you are interested, the stamp is TAM 473 SPLASH.  The duck swim ring was stamped on card, cut out and attached in 3D)

In addition, I have had some more fun with Brussels – Mexico.  I still have some great photos from my January trip, and this page show a beautiful garden in the middle of the old part of the city of Grenoble, towards the south of France.  It was very cold when we were there but the city is beautiful.

This layout uses the new page colour, Nubuck.  If you look closely, the snowflakes were created using Versamark ink and the stamp TAM 515 Winter Celebrations.  The large one has a few strokes with a white gel pen.

I love this use of the stencil, where the square photo is set into a rotated square of backing paper.  If you want to try this, I would seriously recommend that you use the Set Squares stencils.  It made lining everything up a breeze. (there are easy ways to do most things, if you work at it!).

Now, I have another page to show you using an older stencil KIT 213  Decouvre.  I wanted to try out the stamp TAM 463 Birth because I loved the rabbit!  You will note that two rabbits are stamped straight onto the page, and the large rabbit is stamped onto card, cut out and attached, but not in 3D this time.

In addition to Bahamas, there is a new package called Dream Holidays which has been released. This is like some of the Baskets that we used to have, but this one will remain as a special collection available all the time.  The individual products will be available separately in July.

The package is a combination of decorative elements – deco stencil, laces, pin-wheels, stamps etc and a 20-page Book.  The book shows you how to make best use of the decorative items on your pages and is a great resource. Unfortunately the book will not be available separately, only as the package. The package, KIT 524, is $75.

KIT 524 HOLIDAYS THEME

 

There is a special for the next month for those wishing to purchase both the new Bahamas studio and stencils, and the Holidays package – $105 which is a saving of $10 and you also get a 125 point Azza Club card.  If you want them mailed, postage is $6.95.

The next workshop is our Tuesday workshop on 2nd July – all welcome.

Enjoy your scrapping!
