MWL DT: Workshop | Scrapbook Basics

Hi everyone! Today I am up as MWL DT member, sharing about one of our workshops - Scrapbook Basics. This workshop is very close to my heart. It is also what got me hooked to scrapbooking and documenting my daily life right now.

14 years ago, I was attracted to a beautiful shop named Made With Love. On my first visit, I remembered feeling lost, because I did not know what to buy nor how to get started. The projects on display were so pretty and I really hoped one day I could do something like that. So I took the first step to attend a workshop - Scrapbook Basics (previously known as Just Getting Started).

Yes, stepping into the workshop then was probably the best choice I ever made. That was the start of one project to another, and it led me to where I am now, teaching the very same workshop which got me started. I am a true believer of 2 things - foundations and practise. Foundations provide a base of information, and practise brings one to greater levels.


Scrapbook Basics covers 3 important sections to aid your journey into scrapbooking. 


Firstly, introduction of tools and essential scrapbooking terms. How did scrapbooking come about, and why we scrap? What is the difference between a scrapbooking shop and a stationery shop? What do we need to start making a layout? In this first section of the workshop, we will cover the necessary terms and items to get started.


Next, how do we get started with a layout? What makes a layout? What styles bring out the photograph? How to highlight the story you want to tell? In the second portion of the class, we discuss composition guidelines, and how to get started on a 12" x 12" page. 


Last but not least, the workshop isn't complete until you give it a try! Nothing beats having to try out what you have learnt, and the hands on practise will allow you to understand the theory learnt.




At Made With Love, we prepare you for what comes next. Be it scrapbooking layouts, mixed media work, altered art or album making, this first step will help you embrace your next part of the creative journey. 

Scrapbook Basics Workshop costs $45 for 2.5 hours of informative and fun experience! Products and supplies are provided for this workshop, just bring along 2-3 4R photos.

Sizzix: Card | Hello

Hello! I am back again on the blog with some Sizzix UK inspirations! This month spells love, and in Singapore we have been busy preparing for Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day!

This is why I am inspired to come up with this card with loads of flowers! 


This garden florals die set is really fascinating! It contains so many elements, and I love them so much! I can really see myself using them again and again!


The card is shaped like a flower pot holding the flowers. I glued the flowers such that it can be removed and display some written sentiments from the sender to the receiver. While making the card base, I thought it would be fun to add some embossing details! Here I used the 3D woven embossing folder, and added the diecut "Hello".


How beautiful is this array of flowers! Tuck some leaves in between the flowers for some highlights and layers. Of course, don't forget a dainty butterfly because butterflies pack a smile!

For my local friends residing in Singapore, the dies are available at Made with Love  whilst stocks last!

Sizzix: Frame | Smile

Hello! I am back again on the blog with some Sizzix UK inspirations! This week I have been blessed with the most beautiful dies and I am very inspired to come up with a couple of projects. 

Today I am sharing the use of this beautiful butterflies die! I love the array of butterflies and it also comes with 2 other single butterflies which you could use for layering.



This was a picture taken last year on the day of my wedding. I used the Staxable die as a frame. I might add more frames later if i wished to. (That is the beauty of this die!)


I wanted a soft touch of elements to embellish around the photo. The Sizzix UK butterflies thinlits add a wonderful touch! A simple white cardstock will do for this diecut. I say the design speaks on its own! I added a light touch of glitter randomly to this diecut, and it shines!


Just to layer it up a bit, I added some flowers from the garden florals. This pack of thinlit dies are so useful, I could really use them again and again!


Of course this project deserves a title! I was torn between smile and dream. These sentiments are just the right size! Similar to my previous project, I diecut the word Smile twice with cardstock and stacked them together. Lastly, I added another layer with silver foil.


Stacking is easy. Just have the right tools to deal with them! Get your Sizzix Paper Sculpting Kit today - with the right tools, crafting is made easy!
