These are books I made over the past few months, there are more, unfortunately not photographed aside from being on Instagram. I'm more over there as the ease of snapping photos with my phone has completely taken over a real camera which requires more time, needing good natural light and styling. Here's the link to my Instagram : aidaville
We all love quirky stuff and Crate Paper's Chipboard accents with the green horn-rim glasses is so cute !
Love the colors !
This is the inside.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the brand My Mind's Eye !! To me they are the paper company that have consistently gotten everything right in scrapbooking ! Wonderful design and color, it makes scrapping so fun and easy. And really I am not always a Prima or Melissa Frances fan, but these accents were really pretty.
The Lost and Found collection had the usual glittery papers and when used in moderation makes the book feel luxurious.
Another book with some blue, again My Mind's Eye !
Here are the details :
And this one is with paints and I just love the whimsical Technique Tuesday stamp (they make really good quality stamps that last, with vivid images).
A close up ....
Will be back wih more as soon as I can photograph the rest, thank you for dropping by, have a wonderful weekend !
Hello everyone ! How have you been ?
This is another Pillow Box I made using the Alterations Pillow Box Die and the Shabby Chic Frame Ornate #2. I've also added details using the Brenda Walton Holiday Greenery Sizzlits. Both the frame and the flower were embossed with Silver powder from Ranger. The Sizzix Embossing folder Christmas Set #6 was used on the Kraft Cardstock and it was lightly rubbed with Brilliance White stamping ink to show up the texture. The color tone is muted and I love the elegant feel of this small project.
I have another project coming up this Thursday on the Sizzix Blog and if you are in Singapore, it will be live at 10pm. In the meantime, do check out the other amazing designers here : Sizzix US Blog.
This and another Pillow Box I made are displayed at Made Wtih Love.
Still abit of Sunday left ... hope you are enjoying it !
Hello everyone ! It's mid November and with the Christmas lights all up in Orchard Roas, the festive vibe of the area is drawing masses of people wanting to soak in the atmosphere. In keeping with the mood, I've made a festive Sizzix Pillow Box I hope you will try making.
The Sizzix dies I used are :
1. Pillow Box with Labels Movers and Shapers
2. Frame Ornate #2
Other supplies : Christmas Papers and small ephemera, Ranger Silver Embossing Powder, pearl string, cream ribbon, Beacon's 3 in 1 Glue.
Cut out a Pillow Box using the die.
Cut a strip of pattern paper to fit the middle of the pillow box.
Using Beacons 3 in 1 glue, adhere the string of pearls to the edges of the dotted pattern paper.
Die-cut the frame.
Emboss with silver powder from Ranger. The embossing powder looks unremarkable in the jar and its magic is only evident after heat embossing, producing a wonderful vintage sheen.
Trace out the oval center on any ephemera or Christmas image and cut out.
Mat the frame with a pattern paper. Next, using a foam dot adhere the oval shape image to the center.
Tie a satin ribbon to the top of the pillow box and you are done. This is really an easy festive project ! Another idea would be to make a whole lot of these pillow boxes and string them up like a banner, replace the centers with alphabets spelling out *Merry Christmas !*. Pretty projects don't have to be difficult, time consuming or technique heavy. It's fun to do little pieces like the pillow box and quickly have pretty things to display around the home.
If you are a fan of mediums, Made Wtih Love has a Mediums Monday Flash Sale (today only !) where you will get another 5% discount on top of your member discount.
Thank you for coming by, have a great week ahead.
Dear Crafting Friends,
We all have heard of and seen in the news the utter devastation to the Visayas in the Philippines caused by super typhoon Yolanda. It is a horrifying, very real tragedy for many people there. Here in Singapore we cannot imagine losing our home and family with no means of finding food and shelter. Imagine the anguish of looking at young children with no food, the elderly with no one to care for them. Many Filipinos work and live in Singapore, most are shocked and feel completely overwhelmed with sadness, unable to do much to help physically and unable to return.
Genevive Rulona of Thoughful Crafts has organised an ONLINE Grab Bag fund raiser of scrappy products, every cent colletcted will help. Save this date 24th November for the Online Grab Bag sale, please help if you can. We might not be able to do mighty things, but we can start with small actions.

I decided to play along and this is who I am .........
I am a family person, I keep life light and am an addict crafter.
The most important part of my life is family. They are my support and strength, they make me see clearly the consequences of my actions as well as force me to look at my priorities.
As for keeping life light : am a big fan of not taking myself seriously !! I hang out with a few crafters-turned-very-close-friends and they keep me light by bringing on the laughs, showing me the humor in challenging situations, they are a positive source of energy. Most are themselves talented, experienced crafters who generously act as sounding boards for creative ideas.
I am an addict paper crafter and being on the Sizzix Team was a dream I never imagined. Over the months I've gotten to know the crafters on the team better, and they are such amazing people as well as talented in the extreme ! Nothing feeds paper crafting addiction more than working with a wonderful bunch of people in the Singapore scrapbooking store Made With Love. Yes that's right folks, everyday it's about scrapbook products : creating store samples, trying out new stuff, deciding on how best to showcase their qualities or styles for the store and for workshops, as well as managing the Design Team.
Hello everyone !! Today I felt like making a card, it's a little late for International Card Making Day but I hope you will enjoy this short photo tutorial.
The Sizzix products I used are :
Brenda Walton's Bird Scroll 659341
Tim Holtz's Alteration Tattered Pinecone 657492
Tim Holtz's Texture Fades Bubble and Honeycomb Set 657846
White cardstock was used for the die-cuts, both the scroll and the bird are lovely !
Next I inked with Distress Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade.
An Italics background stamp added a pretty touch to the bird.
And I LOVE embossing with UTEE as it gives any die-cut an interesting texture.
The scroll die cut was lightly painted with Art Anthology's Sorbet June Bud, then inked with Distress Dried Marigold.
Run a piece of white cardstock through the Big Shot using the Honeycomb Texture Fade.
Die Cut 2 pieces of Pinecones.
Ink the die-cut with Distress Milled Lavender and Aged Mahogany, then roll the die-cut into a tea rose.
And finally assemble the card !
How has your Sunday been so far ? I hope it's slow and easy, a good break before Monday's frenetic pace. Thank you for dropping by, and tomorrow on the Sizzix Blog is a Halloween Canvas I made you might just enjoy.
This was a peony was created with the Alterations Bigz Tattered Florals Die. I loved how it turned out !
Quick Instructions : Mist one cardstock sheet with a pink mist (I used HS Colorshine Primrose), dry completely. Die-cut as many of the largest flower in the die. Curl all the flowers inwards with a pencil, then glue all the pieces one on top of the other. As the peony gets larger, towards the bottom layers, you will have to cut the petals and glue them individually. Embellish with ribbons and tulle, add a pin to the underside and you have a beautiful brooch.
Hope you enjoyed this !

Opening Day on 21st September started off with a bang and a full day of Tags and Mediums workshop.
I hope to take more photos of the store soon and post them here. Thank you for dropping by !
