Stampin' Up! UK Independent Demonstrator Pootles - Hinged Handled Pretty Bag Tutorial

EEEEK! 10 days left of the Retiring List!!

Oooo, it’s a trip down memory lane to revisit one of my favourite projects from last year, but with a totally different appearance (and handle actually!) to the original.

I was quite worried last week when filming that it wouldn’t be ‘okay’ to revisit old projects, but someone kindly emailed me and put it beautifully into words that sometimes, revisiting an old project can bring different results. So thank you for allowing me to indulge in a trip down memory lane, even if it is only a short walk back to September!

So this project is a direct replication of my original one, but I think it looks quite different! Go see, you’ll understand what I mean!

And how about that retroesque Crumb Cake version! I know the flower isn’t particularly retro, but that paper against the crumb cake bag is definitely a trip further back in time!
