A Funky Farewell...

Hey & Happy Weekend!

It's time for another of those posts that I find hard to write and put all my feelings into. It is with sadness that we at Uniko are saying farewell to one of our FABulous Design Team members Sarah Gray from Funky Fossil Designs.

Sarah has been a member of the Uniko DT since March 2015, taking a break in 2017 to return in 2018 as part of the Uniko Stencil Design Team.

For over 4 years I have had the honour and pleasure of having Sarah as part of the Uniko family. It seems longer than 4 years as before Sarah was a member of the DT, she was a regular customer too! Seeing the inspiration and creativity flow when Sarah works her magic with Uniko products is simply amazing.

Some of you may know that Sarah launched her own business in the paper crafting industry in 2018, Funky Fossil Designs. Initially specialising in Stencils, Sarah now offers a range of clear stamps and MDF pieces. You can checkout and purchase all the fabulous goodies HERE.

Running a business is not an easy task, especially when you have a family and another job to juggle, so Sarah has taken the hard decision to step down from the Uniko team to focus and grow her own business.

It wouldn't be right to say farewell to a fellow creative, without making a card...

In honour of Sarah's growing business I have combined a Funky Fossil Stencil - Brick Wall with  the foliage image from Uniko's Just Because clear stamp set.

I've had this design sketched out for ages and simply hadn't found the time to sit down and create it, until now.

It was hard to select just one sentiment to the card, so I decided to use three instead! These sentiments are from Simply Said Blocks and Simply Said Blocks II.

Uniko's Brand Ambassadors Jane and Izzy have joined me today to say farewell. Jane has also created a card combining Uniko and Funky Fossil products...

Jane has used Uniko's Background Blocks Pinstripe with Funky Fossil Folksy Christmas clear stamps. 

And this is how Izzy has combined Funky Fossil with Uniko...

Izzy has used Funky Fossils Circle Burst Stencil combined with Uniko's BIG & BOLD Happy clear stamps & Designer Dies.

Thank you Sarah for all that you have done for Uniko, YOU ROCK! As one friend to another and as a small business owner to another, I wish you ALL the success with your amazing, creative business within the paper crafting industry.
