Stampin’ Up! UK Balm Jar Gift Box Tutorial

POOTLES Stampin' Up! UK Balm Jar Gift Box Tutorial 2 (2)

I love the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper! That is all!

Okay, it’s not quite all, this would hardly be a conversational blog post if it was, but I really do love the paper.

I say in the video that it didn’t really float my boat at first, but I decided to buy it anyway and see where I went from there. And it’s one of those paper packs that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. The geometric designs aren’t really something that I go for, despite their clean crisp edges, which is my style, but when I started looking at each page individually, I fell for them more and more.

POOTLES Stampin' Up! UK Balm Jar Gift Box Tutorial 3

I won’t go on too much longer, as the video does cover most of what I would otherwise repeat here, but I will say, there is a whopper blooper right at the end with the ribbon placement. However, by that point, I’d already restarted filming 3 times after a coughing incident from Jack in the background (he’s well and back to school by the way!) and then a realisation that I’d waxed lyrical about the paper for over 5 minutes, and re-filming was not an option. You get me, bloopers and all!

Do enjoy the video, either below or HERE!
