Unikly Smash*ing!

Hello All! Welcome back - I've been missing a little bit as I have had a bit of a holiday, so it is nice to get back in the swing of things!
Well, it is release day for Uniko Studio today, and there are loads of wonderful things to play with! I've decided not to make a card today, but use the stamps in my SMASH* Book! I've started to SMASH* my holiday pics in an International SMASH* Book - that should keep me quiet for a while!!

I thought I should use the first pages to celebrate the the reasons why I love Paris - and to be honest, it has a lot to do with the stationery shops (perhaps the wine too!).
This double page shows the two sets released today, Wonderful Washi and Thank You labels - I have used the labels as journalling spots. (Apologies any french speaking peeps who can read my efforts at the language!!) The line grids are stickers that I made myself to write on. I love the Washi stamps - they are a lovely way to add texture to the pages, and I could really easily match up my inks to the pages in my book. Here is a close up of some of the detail:

 The small embellishment stamp on the grid sticker is part of the 'Thank You' set, with the lovely circular label stamps. Just love these - they also fit some of the sentiments from previously released set. The washi stamps can be used so many ways I have stamped, folded, ripped and stuck them on this page.

The great thing with these is that they coordinate with so many of the other products too! I have used Stampin Up! Inks to match the papers, and the swirls are from a variety of packs I had scattered around my little room - so I thought I would use them up! Well, that is all from me for now, I may disappear for a little while - we are having a new bathroom fitting and my craft room turns into a storage space from Monday. Oh Joy!!

Thanks for looking! K :-)
