Uniko Studio Release


Roll on another working week....sorry I've been a little absent recently in Blogland - although my scheduled posts for The Craft's Meow release have posted here (Thank you, Blogger!), I've been MIA.

On Thursday, my dear uncle suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. To say I'm shocked and upset is an understatement. He was my last remaining uncle, he only lived around the corner from my family and was the only living relative of my dad's. It seems so cruel and unfair to take someone who was so lovely and never said a bad word about anyone :(

Although we're still grieving here, the show, as they say, must go on. I honestly think that's exactly what Uncle Ged would have wanted. Although I may be still absent in Blogland right now, I'm still being creative and letting that creativity take my mind away from things.

So let's start by introducing some new fabulous digital goodies from Uniko Studio! 

Three collections are to be released today. First up is 'Joyful Butterfly' which contains both images and coordinating papers. I decided to die-cut a mini enive from the papers:

Perfect for putting a little something in for a special someone :)

The images with this collection are fabulous too. I couldn't resist the butterfly and went down the 'fun' route by adding googly eyes:


That butterfly has so much more character with those eyes!

The next collection being released today is called, English Country Garden. If you like to colour - then the images in this set are for you! I whipped up a couple of cards with the images from this collection:


I printed the butterfly twice to add more dimension. There's also a fine layer of glitter on that butterfly's wings but my camera hasn't picked it up - sorry!

Next up is the beautiful rose and sentiment from the collection:


I added Glossy Accents to this rose to replicate dew-drops.

The final collection is called the 'Classics Collection' and don't tell the others - but I think it's my favourite! It's so cool with it's patterns and patriotic colour scheme - perfect for the approaching jubilee celebrations over here, Independence Day across the pond or for the guys in your life:

DAD you rock

These thickers were originally peach but a few layers of a black Promarker soon changed that!

There's so much more to these collections - I was limited by time so I urge you to check these in more detail here!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I'm so sorry I had to start my week with bad news, it does mean that I'll be staying with my folks' this week so I'll be MIA still until next weekend. Thanks for bearing with me during this difficult time.

I'll be back if Blogger decides to publish my scheduled posts later today and on Thursday!

Catch ya later!
