Stampin’ Up! UK Soap or 3×3 Card Box. And a fit of the giggles… VIDEO

I hadn’t planned to film this tutorial just yet. I was planning and playing and making prototypes and had that ‘eureka’ moment when I realised my box design could have dual purposes. Declaring this on my facebook page, it was met with ‘stop teasing us and share the photos’ which I subsequently did. Well that was then met with ‘are you doing a tutorial/when are you doing a tutorial/hurry up with the tutorial….’

So, I carefully sat and prepped the tutorial, but decided to film the following day, when I had better lighting. Fast forward 24 hours to the filming stage, and could I remember my measurements? no. Could I remember where to put the DSP? no. And thus ensued a bit of laughter at myself, and a flash moment in my head of ‘should I stop and re-shoot or carry on?’

I carried on regardless.

I hope you don’t laugh at me, but along with me. I certainly, having actually never heard myself laugh before, now giggle every time that moment at about 5 mins in comes along, where I lose my way and start laughing.
