SpringWatch 2018 – Bubble Over with Bubbles & Fizz

Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – SpringWatch 2018 – Bubble Over with Bubbles & Fizz

SpringWatch Giveaway for today – BOTTLES AND BUBBLES FRAMELITS – details on how to enter at the bottom

Oh I love FREE! Free paper, free shipping, free stamps, free dies, free anything. And I’m fairly sure that I’m not alone in this…

Free Paper is our focus today and getting 12 gorgeous gift bags for free would make anyone happy. I haven’t a clue how much these would cost if you were to buy them in a shop. £2 each perhaps? And I bet they wouldn’t have the detail in that I’ve added as extras….

So the Sale a Bration offer is a remarkable one, and people wait all year round for it. I love that the free products are exclusively earned for free. You can’t buy them! I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in the ‘exlusive’ stakes either.

And Stampin’ Up! has been great at pairing free products with collections or suites this year, and if you were to buy the Bubble Over bundle of the stamp set and Bottles Dies, plus some cardstock or adhesive, you’d have enough to earn the paper for free, plus of course you would get to use the dies and stamps endlessly. Gotta love those kind of sums!

I wanted to show off this paper because it’s easy to miss it in the catalogue, or rather, miss the detail. Did you see the Calypso Coral and white hearts? no me neither.

A great size bag, perfect to fill with treats, for any occasion!
