Porto-Valparaiso and Pages, Southport

29 Oct

Hi everyone,

The promised pages, using the newest stencil, Porto (from the set Porto-Valparaiso) are show below.  With these pages, I have tried something new with decoration – adding ribbon.  This, of course, is not new, but not something that we do a lot of with our European style of scrapping.  The main focus is the photos, so make sure all embellishments are kept small and in the background, so that they support the photos but are not the first thing that you see on the page.

I really enjoyed playing with the Theme pack AUTUMN for the decorations.  If you have this kit, you will recognise the decoration with chalk, papers and the grapevine stamps.  I love this effect and saw the design as a sample in the book.  Naturally it was modified slightly to fit in with the layout and the photos, but you can see where it came from.

These two pages are facing each other (top photo is on the left).  I chose brown for the background paper because it toned down all that red!  Little Emily is wearing the pink ‘frock’ her proud grandparents bought for her in Paris!  (Every little girl should have her first dress from Paris).  Brother Jack still gets plenty of attention.

CRAFT ALIVE will be having a combined PAGES and STITCHES show at SOUTHPORT on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th November – only 2 just over 2 weeks away.  AZZA will have a stand there so make sure you come down and visit me, and check out the latest products.  As a special bonus, if you mention that you read this in my blog, you will receive 10% off your purchases on the day.  In addition, I have 5 ‘two-for-the-price-of-one’ entry vouchers to give away.  Email me (anitas.azzaworld@gmail.com) if you are interested in one.  For the first 5 to contact me, I will leave the voucher with your name at the door for you to collect when you arrive.  The show is 9:30am to 4pm each day, at Southport Community Centre.

To access the AZZA New products flyer for November, use the link http://www.azzaworld.com.au/assets/pdfs/2014-11-New-products.pdf. There is a lot on offer for card-makers getting ready for Christmas.

Enjoy your scrapping.
