August 2016 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!


With the summer holidays in full swing here in the UK and as I spend time with my beans and family you might have guessed with no sneak peeks that there is no new release this month. So instead we have another Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY instead!

As we've quite a few new followers here, ("Hello & Thank you") I will explain what's going on! Here at Uniko I *USUALLY* only release new products every other month. This is for a number of reasons, firstly, being an avid paper crafter myself and knowing the current economic climate I know 'some' are on a limited budget when it comes to buying new stash, so this way you're not tempted to splurge too much every month.

The second reason is that it is just me here at Uniko HQ. I currently run this little business single handedly, designing, blogging, demoing, classes, packing. Alongside that I am a full time mum to 23 month old twin boys. So releasing every other month gives me chance to keep my head above water, well...just about!

So, on the in-between release months the Design Team & I take a look back at a previously released product, dust it off and give it some love.

This month I decided upon the Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum clear stamp set, probably due to the lovely summer blooms that I am seeing on my days out and time in the garden!

As usual I like to show a couple of older favourite creations using this set. More examples can be found HERE over on Pinterest.

I also recently featured this set HERE as Stamp Of The Week and these are a few of the newer creations I have made using it...

How about some fresh new inspiration using this set? Plus, it wouldn't be a blog hop without a GIVEAWAY right? 

Simply comment along the hop to be in the chance of winning this featured set.  Or if you win and already own the set an eGift certificate for £15 will be awarded. You have until midnight Sunday 21st August 2016 to comment and the winner will be announced on Monday 22nd August 2016.

  9. Stunning, Bev! Your Chrysanthemums remind me of those that bloomed in my grandmother's garden. Oh, what a green thumb she had; her flowers drew neighbours from all over town, coming by to gaze in wonder. Her Chrysanthemums were show-stoppers...and your images have captured their beauty completely! Thank you for sparking treasured memories (as well as a wish for a garden of my own)...
