Mama Makes - Inspiring Homemade Creativity
Mama Makes is all about preserving memories and sending positivity through crafting. These stamps are perfect for cardmaking, journaling and scrapbooks. They are a perfect combination of modern, quirky and the perfect size all kinds of projects.
Mama Makes originally started as a craft blog in 2014, while Loti was on maternity leave. On Mother’s Day 2017, Mama Makes opened as an Etsy store selling clear stamps. We now design and sell stencils, washi tapes, acrylic templates and our very own crafty tools that we design and 3D print in house. We design personalised stamps too for all occasions including parties, weddings, businesses and more. You might have seen the stamps on Create and Craft or maybe in your favourite crafting magazines!
About Loti – Owner & Creative Designer
Loti Maria has been creative ever since she was a small girl watching Art Attack in her bedroom! This passion evolved over the years and was reignited when she was on maternity leave with her son, Charlie and found herself watching craft shopping television.
She then went onto work in craft shopping television as a TV producer and one day was offered something she couldn’t refuse, a chance to make her doodles, into photopolymer stamps, to sell. The rest is history!
Loti lives with her husband Esteban and sons Charlie and Harvey. Loti designs our stamps, stencils and washi tapes digitally with the help of our designers and takes time to think of quirky sentiments for all occasions. Some of Loti’s sentiments are words she wrote down to motivate herself through tough times and she hopes to help and inspire others by making them available as stamps. Loti also helps Esteban with the invention of their acrylic templates and 3D tools including the Maker’s Mate and the Harmony tools.
About Chrly – Creative Designer
Charlie (also known as Chrly) is a doodler from England, currently living and working in Tokyo.
She credits any artistic skills she has to her school days, namely her maths and science lessons.. for being so boring she doodled in all her workbooks. While she doodles in various styles she likes her own work to have a message.
Charlie’s main character is Lou. Lou is born out of wellbeing emotions and selfcare sentiments. Lou was found by Mama Makes through the modern magic of social media, and is Charlie’s first design product. Check out the LotixChrly range here on the website.
