Lip Balm Box Tutorial using Stacked With Love DSP

Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – Lip Balm Box Tutorial using Stacked With Love DSP

Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles - Lip Balm Box Tutorial using Stacked With Love DSP

Okay, who else stockpiled the Stacked With Love DSP and then didn’t use it all up on Valentine’s projects. Surely it can’t just be me….

Okay, it might just be me.

But hey ho, I love it anyway, and I know that despite Valentine’s having been and gone for another year, it doesn’t stop us sending cards to our loved ones, with hearts a plenty!

However, if you’re not a huge heart fan, then there’s nothing that says you can’t use the paper for other projects, hence my cute little lip balm tube holder!

Isn’t it sweet!?

    I really enjoyed your video on the lip blam box, I was looking high and low to find away of making one when guess what? You did one, thank you so much I’m now going to have a go at making one. I’m new too this and I just wanted to say it was watching one of your videos that got me interests.

    Kind Regards


  2. I love your post for the lip balm. I am thinking Christmas already and I think this will be a perfect little gift for all my coworkers. Thank you soooo much.


  3. Hello! I have a question…
    I live in the States, and new to Stampin up and how it works.
    I truly enjoy your tutorials! I just recently found this tutorial for the lip balm box. I fell in lloovvee with the Cheerful Critters stamp you used. I’ve looked on the Stampin up web site for it, but have been unable to find it. Can I still order this stamp set?

    • Oh no, it retired in the summer. You could have a look on ebay or maybe find a US demo and ask if they still have one? x
