UNBOXING MY NEW ENAMEL PINS!!! | Studio Vlog

January 6, 2020 6 By Bernardo Ryan


hello it’s that time again it’s been it’s been a bit of a while can you tell welcome to another
studio vlog I’m Alice if you don’t know you might have forgot Who I am it’s fine
I feel like not many people noticed I wasn’t here but I haven’t uploaded for
the last like maybe 3 weeks 2 to 3 weeks I don’t know but I basically overworked
myself which happens quite a lot I need to learn my lesson but I decided to take
some time off I think over like Christmas vlogmas time that’s when I
usually get the least views because there’s just that much content going up
everyone’s busy living their lives being festive and I kind of lost my mojo a
little bit so I was like I’m gonna make the most of a quiet time of year and
take the time off so I’m feeling it much better and I’ve got a lot of plans
coming in the new year I actually have a very exciting delivery coming soon which
I will tell you about in a little bit but I thought I would kind of catch you
up I guess and I’ve got a delivery I thought I’d
show you just to chatty studio vlog you know something I actually decided whilst
why is my chair in the middle okay something I decided in my little absence
was that I thought I would go back to vlogging just random stuff I think I put
a lot of pressure on myself to do just graphic design content but that’s not
just my life like graphic design is my job obviously YouTube is my job so there
are the two things I talk about the most but my life is kind of what this channel
is all about and it’s always been about I’ve always kind of showed little random
bits of stuff so um the studio vlogs are gonna be just me living my life
it’ll be like two days in the life of a graphic designer sometimes I’ll be
going out to events or whatever so yeah just look forward to some random vlogs
but I have some packages I have a little tiny Amazon package and then this big
boy that is actually really heavy because I have an issue with Amazon
Prime I order too many things I’m here I
think I am one of the main people that keeps Amazon Prime in business so yeah I
thought I’d open these cuz these are all kind of work you related I need some
scissors also I feel like I’m gonna get asked I will link this jumper in the
description box I got it off asos it was on sale and it was a bit Spenny but
I just loved it so much and so I will link that down below for you guys if you
would like it I can’t remember where it was from and I bought it along with a few
other sales purchases it’s just a box in a box some cork coasters that
is to do with the exciting delivery that I will be getting soon so I will I will
explain these but these are for work this is also for work it is a very heavy
lil box and I didn’t actually realize that Amazon did these these are just
part of the Amazon basics range and they were actually such a good price so they
are just little a5 sized do not bend envelopes because I have a full ones I
have hundreds of a4 ones but I don’t have a5 and because I’m starting to do
little greetings cards I needed something smaller just in case
people only ordered a greetings card jobs a good en’ they stink
tho let me show you my face like this and this angle is not the one tho is it
right then this little beauty so oh I can’t show this because that is
a Christmas present not Christmas present birthday you know when you get
those like add-on items on Amazon and you have to spend 20 pounds for it to work
that’s what happened I wasn’t gonna buy all this yesterday but I did because I
needed these for said exciting delivery then I got this
which probably won’t find as fun as I do but I think it’s pretty cool
so it’s a little phone holder for my tripod so currently you’re on a tripod
but this like screws into the normal part of a tripod and then this is where
you can fit your phone I do have a phone however so that I can do like more
little Instagram lives or like IG TV oh why’s my phone so fat so you just
unscrew this it fits your phone only trouble is having a pop sock it’s so
inconvenient when you’ve got to fasten your phone to things and then you
tighten it like that and then have a phone that won’t fall off which I
thought was really, here is me, which I thought was really good and handy and
it was really cheap too so yeah I’ll link everything I bought on Amazon in
the description I’ve just been taking some Instagram photos with my mum one
including this amazing jumper I just can’t go over it I love it a lot it’s
my new favorite thing and I need to edit all them photos if you don’t follow me
on Instagram please go over and follow me I’m trying
so hard to like work on it and make it more sort of consistent and fun and the
kind of content I like to look at I want my instagram to be that it was kind of it
kinda used to be a second second thought like kind of a background thing but I’ve
really gotten into it recently so if you want to go and check out my new improved
Instagram or at least I hope it looks improved imagine if everyone’s like it
looks the same Alice and yeah go over come over there and give that a like
follow you know what to do so I’m gonna edit them photos first I think the main
thing is this delivery so I’m gonna keep you hang in unless I put it in the
description and the title I’m gonna talk a lot in this video
apologies in advance but it’s just been so long I feel like I’ve not spoke to
you guys for ages let’s have a chat in the comments actually let me know what
your highlight has been over the past two weeks
so obviously it’s been like Christmas and new year it doesn’t necessarily have to
be festive it could literally be you sitting in in your bed eating your Christmas
chocolates what was your highlight for me
I don’t know if it was a highlight but it definitely sticks in my head I
watched cats with my boyfriend’s family on Boxing Day and let me tell you the
weirdest film I’ve ever watched I don’t recommend so there’s no describing it
just weird and what else best memory I really liked okay I
thought when my parents went away for the weekend so me my boyfriend had the
house to ourselves and we literally laid on the living-room floor and made Lego
24 going on four right let’s set you down here and I’m going to edit some
photos and hopefully I’ll be able to find some good photos out of the
hundreds we took we took a lot don’t know if this is interesting but
this is my little packaging drawer one day in the future I would like to
have shelves and have all my stuff out but because my office is the spare room
there’s a bed so hopefully one day I want to have my own place I can make
like a proper little office for the shop but this is all like the packaging stuff
that I use regularly so there the a4 do not Bend cards and then I have these
little CD sized ones for said secret package that I’ve not told you about yet
and and then I have obviously the new ones damn it I have the new ones that
present was there and so yeah I am gonna put this box in this drawer I just
wanted to show you a little hack which I did with these ones this is the box they
came in and I kind of DIY did it so it fit in what kind of organizes it too so
this box came like that is the top of the box obviously I’ve laid it down and
I’m gonna like cut the edges out don’t know if this is really clever of me or
it’s something that everyone does but I basically like chop it up and then I’m
gonna chop these off oh for goodness sake what am i doing
chop these bits off then take this flappy bit down use your foot as a prop
appreciate the groovy chick socks and where’s my tape so now I have all the things and all I
need to do is like pull one out of the front and then they’ll all stay stacked
up if we put it in the draw there we go so now I have all my
envelope selections I do have some spare boxes over there when it’s a bigger
package so I have all my envelopes I can get to them easy and the postcards so
everything ships with one of these little postcards which I really love
some spare envelopes spare like old merch all the tape in the world this is
like the craft tape that I use it’s recyclable and actually get asked a lot
of questions about this I’ll link it in the description if you’re in the market
for some tape that’s recyclable basically like you leave it on the box
the cardboard box it can all go in the recycle bin and all gets recycled
together so I thought that was handy then the little sticker rolls I have for
sticking on packages and then I have like the biodegradable films that I put
the prints in tissue paper and then white tissue paper so yeah that’s my
very full packaging drawer and my merch drawer is actually so empty right now
it’s got some spare rolls of paper and stuff that I use for like Instagram
props because I need to find a new home for them but I have all my prints
stacked up here which I want a new method to stack I’m going to buy some
little drawers I think that will fit in this drawer hopefully another reason I
need shelves and then all my prints are in this stack they’re divided up by like
these bits of card so I can get to the next style print it’s not very practical
it’s a bit annoying when I have to package them up but yeah they’re all
there I have a few desk planners left and just single desk planners as opposed
to like the full set so I’ll put them up on my website at some point
this needs posting that was an order that was made over Christmas but yeah
that is my packaging drawer I have seven seven yes seven new products project
products yeah products coming out very soon so watch this space very excited
I’ll let you know a release Day as and when I’ve worked it out because it takes a
lot of preparation as you can imagine but I will show you that process as and
when I start prepping them properly one of which is getting delivered today so
I’m just gonna mention that once more to keep annoying you I’m in a
weird mood can you tell I’m really excited to be back okay I’ve taken my
hoodie off not my hoodie the jumpers my colourful jumper I’ve been working and
the door has just gone dad this is the exciting parcel yeah, do you wanna see what it is, course i do dad doesn’t even know, if it’s an exciting parcel you’ve got to show me it you’ll realise what it is, or you won’t if you don’t listen to me my pins did you don’t know rubbish ah
look all right I got way too excited in that last clip
I’ve just been sat editing the photos changed my jumper like I briefly said and
the pins are here probably should wait to show you these but I love it so much
it’s so intricate I’ll obviously show proper versions of this once I have them
all photographed and stuff I’m so excited so what I’m gonna do I have a
design ready for like little cards to put them on but you know what somewhere
I have a pin the Sophie and Dave sent me when they did those little chip pins if
anyone watches Sophie and Dave you’ll know what I mean because I designed the
backing card thing for them and obviously this is what it needs a card
for the packaging so I’m going to design my own backing cards I’ve got them
designed I’m gonna print them out on just like normal printer paper and make
sure the dimensions are all right and then order them I didn’t want to order
them until these are delivered just so I could kind of judge how big it all
needed to be you know well this is the exciting delivery I mean I feel like
it’s just me that’s gonna be this excited but I hope you are excited I will be putting
these on my website very soon as I mentioned earlier I just need to get you
products that I’m gonna release ready there greetings cards I’ve got six all
together that I’m gonna release and I love them I’ve test printed them out
that’ll be in the next vlog I’ll show you like process of that and kind of a
few of the designs I guess because I’ve kind of shown you a bit of a sneak peek
before Christmas so yeah I am gonna sort this little pin out I’m gonna it’s got
the logo on the back to look at the quality I actually I’m obsessed
it’s got my soul on fire logo on the back so you know it’s legit from me but
I’m gonna sort of measure where the kind of spike part of it is so I can line it
up with the design so I’m gonna go do that I’ve got the photos sort of done
and this hopefully makes sense now so let me just open this so this is my pin
that’s what I’ve got it in my hand I’m gonna keep one for myself
and basically the little pin on the back so like the sharp part I need to poke
that through the business cards so let’s pretend this is the business card I’m
gonna like rest it on rest the business card on the cork so obviously I’ll only
need one and then line this up with it and then press it through like that and
then it’s on the business card I put the thing back on the back and then it would
be on its own little packaging thing that is the idea so that is why I
ordered load of coasters that have cork because I figured that was the easiest
way and they were like one pound 20 or something for all of them so yeah I
dunno so excited so excited I love how I went from like really dressed and nice
and kind of done up lipstick all that to this the two personalities of me this is
where I put everything in black and white and at a very weird angle so you
can see what I’m doing but can’t see what I’m doing
will all make sense when it’s revealed I wanted to be surprised basically so bare with bare with hopefully it’ll be worth the wait on the reverse of this little card is
the design oh my god and it finishes it off so well I’m so happy I have the test
card here what do you think grab it try not to film it on the thing you
don’t want them to see what I’ve got in my house no oh that’s really lovely oh
yeah I like the color better than the plain yeah definitely okeydoke
so I have put the pins away for now I’m about to order the business cards but
I’ve been doing the photos I’ve been editing the photos I’ve just uploaded one on my
Instagram and now it’s of me like Lent in my office looking cool trying to look
cool I’ll insert it here don’t forget to follow my Instagram time has passed I’ve had my dinner and I’ve
ordered the cards the greetings cards and the backing cards I’ve got no makeup
left on my mouth because I sit like this but yeah that’s all ordered the backing
cards are due to arrive on Wednesday the 8th so two days after this vlog goes
live I will have the pin cards to the packaging for the pins and I will also
have the greetings cards which is very scary actually
so yeah a lot of money a lot of money and time and effort has gone into this
very nervous to see how it goes but I will do like a full-on little release
day thing so far I’m thinking let me just check the date on my phone I think
I’m gonna set the release date – oh my god it’s not 9:00 p.m. it’s 10:00 to
10:00 I need to get out this office if I get them on the 8th
I could say release day on Sunday the 19th of January I feel like that could
be good although when’s pay day I don’t know maybe I should do it like
after pay day we’ll see I will Instagram about it so make sure
you follow me over there turn my notifications on and I’ll make sure I
keep you guys updated but yeah that is it for today’s vlog I’m very tired I’m
losing my voice I need a drink I need a shower
to take the remainder of this makeup off and refresh ready for more work tomorrow

been off for that long and I want to make sure this is like as perfect as
possible for you guys so yeah I’m gonna be in the office tomorrow I hope you
