Happy 5th Birthday Uniko!

Happy 5th Birthday Uniko!

Happy Birthday Uniko!

Today we are celebrating Uniko’s 5th Birthday. I can’t quite believe that Uniko has made it this far! What an amazing 5 years it has been… 

Since I began this adventure back in 2012 awesome life events have taken place. From getting married in Hawaii in Sept 2013 to having twins in Sept 2014 and moving house in Feb 2015! Many of you have been with me since the beginning and have been a part of these along with being truly valued customers and supporters of myself and Uniko.


Without you Uniko wouldn’t be celebrating today, so to show my appreciation I am offering FREE Worldwide Shipping, this weekend!

Usually by now, I would have shared sneak peeks, introduced new products and had a release blog hop today and every other 11th of the month.

This year I have decided to take the pressure off myself a little bit by not having a ‘set’ schedule for new releases. Being a full time mummy to 2 two and a half year olds has enough stresses of it’s own! 

So, instead we have a Birthday Linky Party! 

All you need to do is create a birthday card and link it up HERE via the Linky Tool at the bottom of the post.  

The Design Team and I have got the party started and created some birthday cards to inspire you. Be sure to stop on by the blogs via the links and leave some LOVE 🙂

Here is what I created…

I decided to break out some NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff), some mini distress inks that I bought a few weeks ago to create a ink blended panel. The layout of my card was inspired by the new CAS(E) this Sketch! seen HERE and below.


I then dusted off a trio of Uniko clear stamps, All Occasion Sentiments #2 for the large HAPPY. Simply Said Birthday for the small BIRTHDAY and Balloon Bash for the balloon and string.

I used my MISTI for placement of the sentiment and also the balloon string. The balloon is stamped in Hero Arts Mint to Green ombre ink and dusted with clear Wink Of Stella for some added sparkle 🙂
