August is always a special month in Singapore as we celebrate the Nation’s birthday with events all over the city and the spectacular National Day Parade. Stacy has a memorable layout to bring this birthday celebration into the store.

The five stars depict Singapore’s ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.

Just look at the pretty hand crafted Orchids made with a Sizzix die !

Cards are popular crafting makes, we always need cards for special occasions and love how quick they are to make. Watercolour and stencils are current trend favourites and Marina has a set of 4 fabulous cards you will absolutely love.Below are stamped house images that have beenlayered with a stenciled background. The texture is created with Ranger’s White Gesso with the stencil and watercolour painted on top.

Singaporeans are a well traveled lot and recently Jeanette with her husband took a vacation to Lake Balaton in Hungary. Summer is a wonderful time for trips to Europe where the warmer weather makes exploring much more enjoyable and many historic attractions are open for Summer visitors. Echo Park’s Summer Fun collection has bright, happy colours and the ideal set to use for holidays.

It’s Monday and we know what that means : Inspiration !!
We love how TeeJay is such a versatile artist and she has 2 beautiful pieces for us today.

The Lettering page above was embossed with Ranger’s Powder in Sunflower which is a deep, warm yellow.

Alcohol Inks in Caramel, Pebble and Latte were used in this piece. We have limited Alcohol Inks
in the store, get them soon !

Hello Crafters, welcome to Monday Inspirations !
Often we ask ourselves : do I make Art or do I make something useful ? Daolin solved his
dilemma by making this project that just makes him happy.

Craft Day Exhibition

Today Stacy and I have decided to spin things around a bit and show you what we love working with. Aside from designing and teaching at Made With Love, both Stacy and I design for manufacturers of scrapbook products and are very fortunate to receive previews of brand new supplies.

There are always many new things happening in Made With Love, and each week brings me new products which I fall in love with, again and again!

This week, I fell head over heels with the Simple Stories collection! Did you know that Simple Stories now manufactures the paper pad in 6×8”? This is the perfect size to document your stories in the Simple Stories 6×8 Designer Binder! Card makers will find this the perfect size for card making too!

Another tool that you really must have is the Tim Holtz Distress Crayons! The collection of colours is very versatile for all occasions! Regardless of shabby or vintage or sweet pastel looks, you can find a distress crayon suitable for your needs. Did you know that the distress crayons are available both in packs and in loose pieces at Made With Love ?

Recently, I have used the distress crayons with the American Crafts’s Shimelle Little by Little Collection on the layout you see above. Love how easy it came together!

Here’s a close look at the details. The layers are quite easy to achieve yet provide enough dimension to make it look attractive. If you are new to layering techniques, remember that *Less is More* !

I’m not a fan of lovey-dovey themes and prefer those of Family or with positive sentiments.

Sizzix is the die-cutting brand I cannot do without and honestly paper crafting with no dies is completely out of my comfort zone ! We all need titles to our projects and I LOVE how this Thin Sentiment Words Thinlits and there’s one for every occasion. It’s new out of Creativation 2017, so remember to watch out for it at the store’s New Arrivals Thursdays.

Doilies are wonderful layering shapes and this is by Lori Whitlock.

I hope you enjoyed a look into our favourite supplies ! This list changes from time to time simply because there is too much prettiness in the store. What are your favourites ? There must be plenty, happy scrapping ! Aida.
