We know we owe you all your February stamps, and now even your March stamps too :-( but rest assured that as soon as the shipment arrives we will get them out to you asap!!! Unfortunately with these circumstances it is out of our control, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

we don't like leaving things hanging,
so on to


Beginning this March Kit 2008, we will be ADDING . . . yes, your read it right . . . ADDING TWO pieces of Cardstock each month!!!

And to give everyone a variety, other than our regular (main) kits we will be having kits that may be paper heavy on certain months or embellishment heavy on the other. It's another way to stretch your creativity with Studio Azul Kits!!!

But wait, THIS month is going to be EXTRA yummy! We packed our Flower Drum Song kit with not two, but FOUR Bazzils Cardstock!!! Apparently, this month is way paper heavy! Oh, and here's another surprise, we also added a PRIMA PAINTABLES to your kit!!! How good is that!!! Enough of the chit-chat . . . read on!!!!

March Sneak Peak

Here's a sneaky peaky of what's to come for this months kit:

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

More ideas for your Feb Kit:

Our dear DT Au, came up with a great handful of cards, she enjoyed the back to back prints of our Feb Kit so much she came up with these babies! Enjoy!

This month we have bountiful LO's, total eye-candy from two very talented DT's that SA is honored to have. We hope these wonderful creations will inspire you to use your February Versailles kits ;-) Enjoy!

Layouts by AU LIM
Please take the time to click on the LO's and read the journaling of our DT's. Au's journaling is really amusing, and unique! You'll know why :-) Au outdid herself as always, and these layouts really give tribute to her two "babies".

When we saw CV's email attachments we couldn't believe she made so much LO's (and a card) in record time. The quantity isn't short of creativity we guarantee, and the style is so much of CV which we have always admired.

Here's a little trivia: The WISH layout of CV (above) was done in record time. . . if we have our facts straight, we believe it was done in 10 minutes . . . crazy-fast we tell you!

We have been on the look out for new talent to further enhance the creativity of Studio Azul and our kits and we finally found her! We have always admired her simple yet elegant scrapping skills and we were just so happy (ecstatic really!) when she said YES to our invitation to join us!

Please welcome our new BLUE LADY, the 4th to make us a complete group of squares hehe (who ever knew squares could be oh so cool!) . . . none other than

A little something about CV:

I've been married to my husband, Gerard, for 9 years now and we have 2 wonderful children: Nikki (8) and Ian (5). I am a Dietitian by profession but I opted for a career in the hotel industry. I was in the hotel food and beverage department for about 12 years but am now teaching Restaurant Operations to college students who are in the Hotel and Restaurant program.

I am not quite sure that I have a style to call my own - I love trying out all sorts of styles, although I am more drawn to clean and simple, graphic-style pages. I am still trying to learn how to stamp better and to make beautiful cards. I also love taking photographs but I would really love to learn how to take better photos someday soon!

Watch out as we post LO's of our new kits
by CV and of course, LO's by AU!!!

Welcome to the blue ladies group, Christine!!!

FEBRUARY KIT 2008: Versailles

To our Valued Customers:

Before anything, we would like to apologize for the delay in posting our sneak peak, we have a bit of delay with our stamps. So we've decided to post the whole kit with an illustration of the stamped image for the meantime. Please be informed that our Feb Kit will be slightly delayed this month, as we are waiting for the arrival of the stamps. Do let us know if you would like to receive the kits ahead of time and we will send the stamps separately, or you can also arrange for pick-up either at Fort Bonifacio or Forbes Park.

Thank You,
Mia & Tin
