Super Free Saturday....and more!

If you're looking for my Card Design Handbook blog hop post scroll down or click here - thanks! :)


Well naughty Blogger has kept a scheduled post all to itself - grrrr! This post was scheduled to go live on Saturday to coincide with some exciting stuff kickin' off on the Uniko Studio blog!

So what's the exciting stuff? Well not only is it exciting, it's free!

Today is Super Free Saturday on the Uniko blog and it's a Saturday I'm happy to take advantage of too *wink*. Once a month, Uniko Studio is releasing a digital collection that you can download and play with for free!

So what's up for free grabs for the first Super Free Saturday? Check it out:

And here's a little project that I whipped up with just one of the elements from the kit:

Thank You
Tip: When using soft, pastel colours I don't like to use the colour black for my sentiments - I find it too harsh in contrast. Instead, I like to try and opt for a dark grey and a font that isn't bold!

A simple change of colour to a part of the element and the addition of a typed sentiment and bling made this little 3x3 card super easy to create! I'm going to enter this mini-card into the Moxie Fab Focal Point Challenge seeing as I have a very clear focal point to this card :)

Do you play with digital elements in your crafting? I was once a digi-phobe but now I find it quick, easy and fun to experiment with them. You can be super simple and just print the digital elements you require and craft or you can play with them using an editing software programme (in case you're wondering, I'm a huge fan of the free, open-source graphic programme, GIMP)

Now you thought that was enough fun for a Saturday, right? Wrong! Uniko Studio are also having a DT Call!

And it's open to international peeps too! Check out the full deets here!

Phew! That's enough excitement for one day....oh wait, there's also the Uniko Studio Blog Candy that's still open - check out those deets here!

Now that really is all the excitement - I promise! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today - I always appreciate your visits!

Catch ya later!

Hi there. Thanks so much for fixing your last post so I could pin that card. I am a regular reader and pinner of yours, so I knew something was different. And, this thank you card is so sweet. I love the colors.

I was looking at all the images and the butterfly tag was the one I liked best too! Also, I just adore your new avatar photo. You can see how pretty you are!

Have to say I'm still a digi phobe...I look at what Lucy creates all the time and am constantly amazed. Something about touching the paper myself with an ink pad! (That sounded strange...wink, wink!) Love your gorgeous card!

Love your clean card with that gorgeous font.

Absolutely beautiful and so clean and crisp.

Nerina said...

Oh so pretty! I love the sweetness of the pink with the touch of shimmery bling! This makes a great focal point. I think you're very brave getting into digi! Eeek - I haven't made that leap yet - but your card makes it so tempting!
