Sneak Peeks

August 2018 Release Sneak Peeks!

Hello!

Sorry that it has taken SO long for me to organise the next release here at Uniko, life got a little crazy at one point. Now we are half way through the Summer holidays here in the UK and the majority of my time is keeping The Beans entertained & having days out to enjoy the sunshine we have been having.

Anyway, it is finally time to share the August 2018 Release Sneak Peeks with you – YAY! So let’s get to the peeks..

First up a peek at an addition to the geometric Background Builders. This set has many fun possibilities and is great for your masculine themed projects and pairs wonderfully with the previously released Bee Happy clear stamp set 😉

Those that know me know that I like a new floral and this little set is one of those that has a ‘beautiful’ floral duo and sentiments to match.

I’ve had many requests for more BIG & BOLD sentiments, so here is the next in the series. Can you guess the word from this peek?!

This next week is a fun framed floral stamp. It has so many fun possibilities and it features some Flower Power and other motifs from current clear stamp sets. I’m looking forward to showing you more of this stamp in the coming days 😉

Lastly, I decided it was time to ‘officially’ release this little clear stamp set…

This was the Release Day freebie from back in December 2017, called So Much. From Release Day (19th August), it will be available for purchase. I’m looking forward to sharing more with you all using this set.

That’s all the Sneak Peeks for this little release! Be sure to join us tomorrow, as the DT and I begin the product introductions :)

Until then, I would love to know what you think of the sneak peeks!

Hugs

 

May 2018 Release Sneak Peeks Day 3

Welcome Back!

So far we have had 2 days of sneak peeks and I am back today with a few more! Not only are we counting down to the May 2018 Release, it is also countdown to Happy Stampers Festival.

May is my birthday month too and there are a few giveaways around Social Media happening and planned to celebrate! So you might want to check out Sneak Peeks Day 1 HERE 😉

Anyway, lets see some more peeks…

Here we have another Uniko Stencil and again you might recognise the design from the February Release. Plus I have one more Stylised Floral Stencil design below coming your way!

The last peek today is of the last clear stamp set being released this month, the next addition to the Flower Power series…

That’s all the sneak peeks that I have to share with you all today! We have one more day of peeks to share tomorrow. If we’ve seen all the peeks at Uniko Clear Stamps and Uniko Stencils being released, it must be some NEW matching Designer Dies 😉

I do hope you have enjoyed the peeks so far and I’d love to know what is on your wish list! Until tomorrow…

May 2018 Release Sneak Peeks Day 2

Welcome Back!

Yesterday saw the start of the countdown to May 2018 Release! It is also countdown to Happy Stampers Festival and May is my birthday month, so I am going to be having a few giveaways around Social Media to celebrate!

Today I am sharing a couple more sneak peeks at the new products being released on the 12th May…

Who doesn’t love a silhouette and a floral one? Silhouettes have been around in the paper crafting and stamping world, probably from the get go! However, there seems to be a revival of this trend and I thought I’d put a little of my style out there too 😉

Next, I have a fun new background sneak peek.

That’s all the sneak peeks that I have to share with you all today! I do hope you have enjoyed the peeks and I’d love to know what you like the look of so far :)

WhooHoo!

The long wait since the last release is over and the time has come to start the countdown to May 2018 Release! It is also countdown to Happy Stampers Festival and May is my birthday month, so I am going to be having a few giveaways around Social Media to celebrate!

Anyway, how about some peeks at the new products available on the 12th May, both on the website AND at Happy Stampers Festival…

You might recognise this style of stamp?  An additions set to the popular Simply Said Blocks, with lots more sentiment choices!

Those who attended the Uniko Stamping Retreat in December 2017 will recognise this Uniko Stencil peek! This month sees the official release of this stencil, which coordinates with a previously released Uniko clear stamp set?

Simply tell me the name of the Uniko clear stamp set it coordinates with in the comments below and I will draw a lucky winner to receive the NEW stencil and the clear stamp set!

I’ve been a Busy Bee as you can see!

Uniko Guest Designer for May 2018!

Hey & Happy Monday!

Today I am super excited to be introducing Uniko’s Guest Designer for the month of May. I am also really happy to be opening the Uniko Guest Designer door again, and I am hoping it to be a regular occurrence, especially during release months!

I am truly honoured to have Anna Uhras from URAscrap. I am sure many of you are familiar with Anna’s work, she is a Design Team Member for CASology, a card challenge blog Uniko frequently sponsors, Design in Papers and Citrus Twist.

Over to Anna now to introduce herself…

Hi!

I am Anna Uhras ,43 years old, from Sweden. My profession is Hairdresser and I am happily married to my husband Henrik, who is a farmer soon to be for 24 years. We live at our farm and together we have five lovely kids aged 22, 20,18, 6 and 4. I work part-time and then I am a stay at home mom. My family is my heart and joy!
 
Scrapbooking is my “Me time” and I have to admit that it is also sort of an addiction if you ask my family, LOL! I love all those pretty papers and embellishments and I love to be creative with them. Actually ! can’t live without scrapping!
My first contact with scrappy things was in 2007 by making cards. But it wasn’t until 2012 I discovered layouts and then I never looked back. I think my scrappy style has evolved a lot since I first started. I love to try new things and techniques all the time.
Right now I love to use stencils and mist’s for my layout backgrounds. Colours make my heart sing so I use a lot of colours on my projects. However I feel I have a pretty clean style. My favourite crafting supplies are patterned papers, colour mist’s, stamps cotton thread and my sewing machine, in fact it’s hard to find any of my projects without any stitches. Also I love to use digital cut files with my Silhouette Cameo.
My creations are mostly layouts (both 12×12 and 8.5×11), cards and TN-spreads as well.

I’m so excited, happy and very proud to be your guest here at Uniko Studio, thank you so much Bev!

Take care! Anna xo

Welcome Anna! It was lovely to find out more about you, your family and what you LOVE most about paper crafting.

Anna will be joining us throughout May here on the blog as our Guest Designer AND joining in on some of the May 2018 Release :) Until you get to see Anna’s projects in full, here are a few peeks at what Anna has created to share…

 

Stunning peeks, don’t you think? I sure am excited to see the full projects and read about how they were created.

Until then, thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will pop back tomorrow, as countdown to the Uniko May 2018 Release starts!

Hugs

 

Uniko Sponsors Passion For ProMarkers!

Hello again!

I did say it was a busy day here at Uniko HQ and I am back again to let you know that Uniko is super happy to be sponsoring another challenge in blog land… Passion For ProMarkers!

This week HERE at Passion For ProMarkers they want to see ’embossing’ on your project. It can be any type of project and any technique of embossing, as long as you use some kind of Windsor & Newton (formally Letraset) product to colour the project.

So I challenged myself to play along and as I don’t have many ProMarkers, just the Neon collection, I opted for a ‘Happy’ card…

It feels like and age since I used Decorative Doilies The Hands Of Time and the thought of colouring one of my favourite doilies neon made me happy. I started out by stamping the doily in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and quickly adding Stampin’ Up! black EP. This helped me to keep the colour inside the lines!

The ‘Happy’ sentiment is also heat embossed, fussy cut out and adhered using foam adhesive. You are getting another peek at a October 2017 Release clear stamp set 😉

I hope you’re inspired to join in on the challenge & I look forward to seeing you in the gallery. That is all I have to share today, but I will be back with the Uniko DT tomorrow with our first October 2017 product introduction.

Until then, thanks for stopping by!

Uniko Sponsors CASology!

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

I do hope you are having a good week so far? It is a busy one here at Uniko HQ as we are in full swing with the October 2017 Release. We have had all the clear stamp set sneak peeks and I have been sharing some other product peeks over on Instagram and Facebook! There is also a peek at a new die collection in this post 😉

Anyway, along with all the festivities, Uniko is super duper happy to be sponsoring one of my favourite challenges this week, CASology.

This week the cue word over at CASology HERE is ‘ODD’…

Week 270 - Odd

I found this a little hard a first, but I then got to thinking of odd numbers and this card came about…

UnikoSponsorsCASologyODD1{Click Photo for a Closer Look}

I chose an ‘odd’ number of flowers and my favourite number! I dusted of Flower Power #1 clear stamps and paired them with the NEW matching Flower Power Designer Dies. Yep, another NEW set of coordinating dies :)

The layout of my card is loosely based on this weeks CAS Colours & Sketches sketch seen HERE and below. I’ve my Design Team card over HERE too, if you want some more inspiration today!

To make my card a little more ‘odd’ I decided to use both positive and negative die cutting for the flower trio…

I hope you’re inspired to join in on the challenges & I look forward to seeing you in the galleries too! I will be back a little later on with another Uniko Sponsorship card!

Until then, thanks for stopping by!
