Hi there, WOW it's obviously a while since I posted anything here - Blogger has changed! Yikes going to have to take a little time to suss a few things out!

Anyway I hope you are all keeping well, wherever you are during this very stressful and weird time. We are well and trying to juggle both working at home, on the whole, with an 8 month old puppy in tow who is up to lots of mischief - hence crafting has taken a VERY back seat of late.

So today I'm back with a little reminder about our current challenge over at Uniko where the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of 'Thank You'

Here's my card which I put together on one of our dreary days in the UK and decided to skip the old Autumn tones in favour of bright cheery.




As always there's plenty of fantastic creations by my fellow teamies, so why not head over to the Uniko blog HERE to check out the links and pay them a visit! I'm sure they'd appreciate it!






Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Ishani who is one of our previous Uniko Challenge winners. Do pop along and visit her blog and leave a friendly word and some love.

You have until Midnight GMT on Friday 23rd October to link up to the challenge and all the details you need about prizes and how to play can be found over at Uniko HERE

As always thanks for calling by my blog today and I hope you feel inspired and will play along with us!

Uniko - Challenge #59 Reminder


Hi there, I'm back with a little reminder about our current challenge over at Uniko and the theme for this one is Anything Goes with the optional twist to make it Bright & Happy.

Here's my card using the floral image from Hello Lovely along with some sentiments from the beautiful set along with a 'beautiful' die-cut word die and shadow. Once again I've channelled Bev's beautiful colour blending combos, which also happen to be some of my own favourites. I've used Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers.

Uniko Challenge #59


Hi there friends, I hope you are all keeping safe and well during this very difficult time. 

Today we are starting our latest challenge over at Uniko and hopefully it'll put everyone in a cheery mood despite the restrictions and stresses. 

Here's the cue card to explain what's required



... and here's my card using the Mid Century Modern II Stencil with some Uniko sentiments and a die-cut 'sending' word from Simon Says Stamp. I've channelled some of Bev's beautiful colour blending combos here as they are definitely cheerful, bright and happy in my opinion.

Uniko Challenge #58

Hi there, I'm back with a little reminder about our current challenge over at Uniko where the theme is Spots & Stripes with the optional TWIST to use a stencil.

I've got to admit that my mojo isn't exactly flowing at the moment during this stressful time so I've just the one card and it's not the most exciting I've ever done but hope you'll understand ...



I used a home made 'GinaK' style turnaround card adding lines and spots around the corners of my original square panel, using BackGround Builders Classics and Round in Circles sets with a bold sentiment from BIG & BOLD Hello. I opted for bright and cheery colours to hopefully make someone smile. 

As always there's plenty of fantastic creations by my fellow teamies, so why not head over to the Uniko blog HERE to check out the links and pay them a visit! I'm sure they'd appreciate it!

Uniko - Revisit March 2020


Hi there friends, I hope you are all keeping well and safe during these scary times and sending lots of love and crafty hugs your way (from a distance of course)!

So it's another REVIST month over at Uniko where Bev asks us to 'dig out', dust down and bring a previously released set back into the spotlight! 

This month it's an oldie but goodie and has to go down as my all time favourite floral set by Uniko, which is, of course, the Pure Florals - Gerbera set. It's never a chore to play with this one, especially with the co-ordinating dies; it's a dream!

I've gone with 2 shaker card examples, basically because I set myself a stupid task of sorting out my sequins the other day!!!! I'd forgotten how many different types I have!!







As is the tradition there's a blog hop giveaway; the prize being the Pure Florals Gebera set or an alternative prize if you already own this one! You have until midnight (GMT) on Sunday 22 March 2020 to comment along the hop and here's the blogs you need to visit.

Sarah (That's Me!)

You'll find all the details over at Uniko HERE and I'd like to wish you lots of luck on the hop and here's the image of the Gerbera set we've revisited. Hope you enjoyed the inspiration and as always thanks for visiting my blog today.

Hi there and thanks for visiting me again today!

We've made it! Yeah!

You've survived the Sneaky Peeks and all those Introductions and now we have the BIG Reveal, Release and GIVEAWAY of this month's new stamp sets from Uniko celebrating their 8th Birthday!




Here's my cards showcasing these fabulous sets and they are now available in the shop HERE and waiting for you to buy! First up 2 'same but different' ones using BG Block Arts Decoratif, sentiments from Anniversaire Arts Decoratifs and the Kindness Blooms Designer Dies; all coloured with Zig Clear Brush pens.



Next up a trio of very similar cards using the same Background Block and more of the sentiments - hopefully teaming these with the gold gives them more of 1920s look!

So all that's left for me to do is set you off on the traditional Design Team Blog Hop and wish you luck; details are over on the Uniko blog HERE so if you get lost along the way just head back there.

Uniko - Introducing Spring Botanicals Tulip

Hello again and once again welcome to the latest introductory post for the new goodies, being released by Uniko this month. They will all be available to purchase from the store on Sunday, 23rd February 2020. 



Today, the Team and I are showcasing the latest set in the Spring Botanicals range - this time with tulips! Let's hope these beautiful flowers start popping up in our gardens soon too. It was my Mum's birthday yesterday so this set worked a treat for her card, especially as tulips are one of her favourite blooms. It was also another opportunity to feature the fantastic outlined alphabet set that we introduced on Tuesday.


I also made a matching gift tag for mum's gift too!



Last one for this post using some Easter sentiments, included in the set along with a stencilled background using Uniko's Lattice stencil.




Tomorrow is the final day of our introductions to the new goodies before the BIG REVEAL, RELEASE & GIVEAWAY on Sunday. The release schedule, can be found over on the Uniko blog HERE as well as links and peeks at how my fellow teamies have worked their magic!

DON'T FORGET to enter the HUGE prize giveaway to 'WIN stamps for a year' details on THIS post!




Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll be back for more introductions tomorrow.
