The Flying Unicorn started a new feature this month, called Today. It's the first thing you see when you go to the site. Those of us on the creative team are taking turns posting our work on Today. All the posts stay up, you just need to scroll down to see them all. My turn was yesterday. Our product feature this week is Graphic 45.

Distres Ink to edge the paper.
Then I turned it over and added additional images to the accordian
folder. You also can see the back cover in this photo on which I used
more G45 stickers from this collection.
