Some Odd Girl Trick or Treat Hop

We’d like to welcome you to Some Odd Girl‘s 2nd annual Trick or Treat Halloween Hop
Thank you so much for joining us!  All of the Odd Girls have concocted a creepy little creation to inspire you today, and you’re invited to visit each blog to see what’s been brewing!   You might have arrived from Melissa’s blog – if so, you’re on the right track!  If not, you’ll want to CLICK HERE to get things started, because you won’t want to miss a thing!
We’ll be sharing some of these pretties are the Some Odd Girl blog over the next few days, but TODAY, we kick things off!  So you might be wondering what this Trick or Treat stuff is all about, yeah?  Well, in addition to amazing papercrafty goodness you’ll see at each stop, you’ll get tricks along the way, too!  Simple tips and tricks to little secrets we papercrafters have figured out that we want to share with you!  That covers the Tricks.
And then there are TREATS! 
As you hop, you’ll come across some Treats, located at random Odd Girls‘ blogs.  We have some clear stamps, some Odds & Ends, some digi stamps and lots and lots of inspiration for you!  AND, as if that wasn’t exciting already, we have a discount code for you! 
Now for my little make for the hop- I love giving little goodie bags and boxes so that's what I created here using an oldie-but-a-goodie digi image called Pumpkins!  My little trick is that if you're printing a digi directly onto a card base or project like I did here first print it on a regular piece of printer paper.  Then just attach your base on top of the printer paper with some removable adhesive or washi tape- you'll get the perfect alignment every time :)


Be sure to leave a comment at each stop, and if YOU have any tricks you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them!  There might just be a prize in it for one commenter who leaves us a trick!  Okay.  So have you got all that?  Are you ready?  Well allllll righty!  LET’S HOP!   Here’s your hop order:
And there you have it!  We will hop now through October 31st at midnight Eastern, and our winners will be announced back here on the Some Odd Girl blog on Monday, November 3rd.  Happy Haunting – I mean HOPPING!  :)  Your next stop is JoAnn!
And a very Happy Halloween from all of us at Some Odd Girl!

Paola, judy, and Melissa all say blog doesn't exist? Wondering if fb is having issues today. Been trying to get online on my computer for an hour to see if these pg's will open. My tablet is newer and I don't usually have problems with it....
Love the pumpkins:)

Yea! The pumpkins are so cute, I wonder what might go in the box? I haven't quite had the courage to print straight on the card yet, maybe I'll take a leap soon...

Great trick! I'm new to digi stamps, so this is helpful. Thanks! Love the pumpkins.

Love your little pumpkins. I've never printed a card front like you said. I have done like you said when I print on DP for paper piecing or if I use DP for the background of a sentiment.
