May 2016 Design Team Blog Hop & Giveaway!


I'm SO happy you've stopped by the blog today as today is the May 2016 Design Team Blog Hop. Along with the hop we have a GIVEAWAY! So be sure to grab a drink, get comfy, relax and enjoy.

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 20 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 couldn't decide on just one stamp set to take a look back at, so I chose 3 instead ;) This month we are looking at the previously released All Occasion Sentiments #6, Flower Power #3 and Natures Treasures II clear stamp sets...

Another reason why I have chosen 3 sets to revisit is also to show how Uniko clear stamps can be mixed and matched. 

I'm still playing catch up post show at Port Sunlight, THANK YOU to everyone who came by to say 'Hi' and shop too :) it was lovely to meet so many faces. Also a BIG thank you to Sarah P and Lindsey from the Uniko DT and my friend Claire who came to help on the stand, I wouldn't have managed with out you all. Fingers crossed Uniko get offered a stand at the October show!

Anyway, as usual I like to show a couple of older favourite creations using these sets, this month I have added in a couple of past DT and Uniko customer creations . More examples can be found HERE over on Pinterest.

That's all from me (in a fashion) for now, I aim to share some new creations this evening. But how about some more inspiration using these sets from the FABulous DT...
