Happy Birthday TIME OUT Challenges!

Hey!

Can you believe TIME OUT Challenges is celebrating its first birthday?! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIME OUT :)

This fortnight we are celebrating with a Home Sweet Home challenge, inspired by this photo seen below...




This is how I was inspired...




As you can see I was inspired by the colours and the frames. I decided to use the filmstrip from Strike A Pose! for my frame and used Simply Said Birthday sentiments. 

Speaking of Home Sweet Home, we moved into our new sweet home last week, hence the blog-a-roo and everything being so quiet. Plus the majority of my craft supplies and life in general is in boxes! I think we will be living from boxes for a few weeks, as it's not easy unpacking with two not so little beans keeping me busy. 




My not so little beans turned 6 months old this week, this is them in their new high chairs...

Anyway, this fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Mandi, be sure to stop by Mandi's blog HERE to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team...




AND that's not all, as it's a birthday celebration there are prizes up for grabs too...

The winner will get:

-£15 Uniko Gift Voucher 
AND
-$15 STAMPlorations Gift Voucher

Plus there will be a random draw and the winner of this will get a celebration/birthday stencil pack from STAMPloations.

For all the info and to link up your challenge be sure to stop by the TIME OUT Challenges blog. I look forward to seeing your creations :) I'll be back again later in the week with more to share & until then, thank you for stopping by today.

Mini Birthday Blog Hop & a Farewell

*This is my 2nd post of the day, for my TIME OUT Challenges card click HERE*

Hey!

So a couple of the Design Team didn't receive their stamps in time for Uniko Studio's 3rd Birthday Blog Hop so now they have them we are putting on a mini hop to give you some more inspiration and also as a farewell to one of our DT members...N@Ali.

N@Ali has been an inspiration to everyone here at Uniko and we are sad to say farewell, sometimes life just gets in the way of crafty fun! All of us here wish you all the best in your future adventures and we hope life settles down for you. 

Here are a couple of cards I have made using the February Release...




First a OL beauty using Balloon Bash and a sentiment from Simply Said Birthday. And I couldn't resist a Beautiful Blooms II card...




This one was inspired by Maile Belles and the trend of slicing through sentiments! Beautiful Blooms II was VERY popular and is currently sold out, we should have more in stock soon! There is still chance to get your hands on the other 3 sets released HERE! Be quick as stock is limited on these too.

Anyway, lets hop along to see what the other DT members taking part have created...

That's all we have today, but be sure to pop by tomorrow as our next challenge goes live! Until then, thank you for stopping by today.


TIME OUT Challenge - Inspired By Words

Hey!


These fortnights pass SO quickly, don't you think?  

Anyway, it's challenge #25 over at TIME OUT Challenges and we are back to being inspired by words, the phrase for this fortnights challenge is...


Rock around the clock


What do these words inspire you to create? I was inspired by the word clock, which resulted in this card...




It's been a while since I inked up my very first 2 Uniko Studio clear stamp sets, Today, Tomorrow & Always Time and Extra Time, so it was nice to dust them off and give them some love! I used my two favourite clock faces and a trio of WPlus9 ink colours to create this card.

I was also inspired by the current Addicted to CAS challenge HERE whose cue word is MASK. As you can see I masked and stamped my clock faces down the right hand side of my card.




This fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Hazel, be sure to stop by Hazel's blog HERE to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team...




For all the info and to link up your challenge be sure to stop by the TIME OUT Challenges blog. I look forward to seeing your creations :) I'll be back again later in the week with more to share & until then, thank you for stopping by today.
