Heading to Thailand and a lovely giveaway!

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Heading to Thailand and a lovely giveaway!

So in just a few hours I shall be jumping on a train at Peterborough station to start my journey to Thailand for the annual Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip.

It’s a long trek with 2 hours of train journey, an 11.5 hour flight to Bangkok then another 1.5 hours onto Phuket. But nothing would stop me getting there, what an opportunity of a lifetime!

This year I am travelling alone as Chris has commitments with work and he will also be ‘full time’ Daddy to our 4 wonderful boys.

I couldn’t have got on this trip without all of you though. For it’s a combination of sales and promotions that earn a person a spot on the trip and for me, it was all down to you. And the team gave me the spending money!

So I wanted to set out a huge thank you for while I’m away.

I recently received my Lemon Builder punch and having surfed Pinterest, I can’t wait to get started on playing with it.

I envision glittery lemons and oranges stamped and punched and glittered with Wink of Stella. I can see packaged tied up with fun and uplifting sentiments attached. I can see a vast array of projects and I think you guys can too!

So here’s my giveaway (and it runs hand in hand with the Bonus Days offer too)

For all orders of £45/€60 I will send you the Lemon Zest stamp set.

For all orders of £90/€120 I will send you the bundle of the Lemon Zest stamp set AND the Lemon Builder punch

In addition to this, you will also be getting coupon codes from Stampin Up. 1 for a £45/€60 spend and 2 for a £90/€120 spend. And they’re each worth £4.50/€6 so it’s a nice double gift!

So my giveaway starts today, Friday 7th July and ends at midnight on July 18th which is the day I return home.

All my blog posts and videos are scheduled, so there will be no down time while I’m away, and I hope to be able to update my Facebook Page too

So again, with humble thanks,  and have a watch of my impromptu facebook live broadcast!
