Huge Pinch Close Bag using Stampin’ Up! Pop of Pink

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Huge Pinch Close Bag using Pop of Pink

Oh I do love a big bag! I prefer a big bag uninterrupted by the doorbell and then a noisy conversation from my husband and neighbour, but you know…. needs must!

I was filming this video right before I moved house and had pretty much zero time to refilm another version. I also had only a little bit of paper left, so I decided to carry on regardless.

My neighbour had refitted her kitchen and her old cooker was by her front door waiting to be collected by the scrap man and while she was out, it was taken. Not by the scrap man however. Who knows who took it, but she was quite upset someone had taken something off her property. Our old house was on a private, but open, driveway and her house was right next to the road, so it was easy pickings.

But anyway, she was unaware that I was filming and that with Fennel deciding she needed to open my office door to go out and be inquisitive meant a few minutes interruption right at the end. Apologies for that!

So back to my lovely big bag, it’s so pretty with the pink and white hearts and then the addition of the gold heat embossed ones on the scalloped tag. And that lovely phrase from Places You’ll Go just seemed perfect.

I do enjoy heat embossing and adding that luscious gold to Pop of Pink is a pretty inclusion!

Hope you all have a super Friday!

  4. What beautiful bags, love the tag and the embossing. LOL, Sam, no worries about interruptions, that is real live. 🙂
    Gee, I guess people take all over the world. Unless it’s right at the curb, people should not go near others properties, but they do.

  5. *life, LOL
