Just Keep Swimming

Hiya crafty peeps!  Whew, it's another Monday...but the good news is that means there's a new digi release over at Some Odd Girl.  I'm here to share a sneak peek at Angel Fish!  I had some fun putting together this clean and simple card by using the digi stamp twice, flipping the image on one, so that it looks like there's a couple of fishy buddies :)  I decided to make this a little encouragement card by making the sentiment my favorite line from Finding Nemo that I always say to myself when the going gets tough "Just Keep Swimming".
Now make sure you pop on over to the Some Odd Girl blog to see some more inspiration and to get a peek at what the other release image is and enjoy the amazing makes that the other gals on the design team put together.  Thanks for stopping in to visit me!

Oddtober Fest Halloween Hop

We’d like to welcome you to Some Odd Girls 3rd annual Trick or Treat Halloween Hop!

Thank you so much for joining us!  This year we're throwing a crafty costume party for you and all of the Odd Girl's have posted Halloween costume themed creations! You might have arrived from Melissa’s blog – if so, you’re spot on!  If not, you'll want to click here to go back to the beginning and make sure you hit all the houses....I mean blogs!

How will the trick or treating work? As you stop at each blog along the way to oooh and ahh at the fun Halloween costume themed crafts, our Design Team will either have a treat for you, or a trick (don't be scared, it's a crafty tip, and has nothing to do with house egging)

I'm not telling you which DT has a treat though and you can't make me! Besides, in order to qualify for a treat, you have to leave a comment on every blog along the hop. One person from each treat blog comment section will be awarded a code for $10 of Digi's in the Some Odd Girl shop!

But we couldn't let everyone else go without a little treat, so everyone can use code TRICKORTREAT to get 20% off your entire purchase through the weekend!

Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop to qualify for a treat and more importantly, have fun!

Are we ready? Here is your Hop order:


I don't know about you but I love making my own little Halloween decor for my house and office.  It's so fun to incorporate your craftyness into the spaces where you spend your most time.  Here I used Vampiress (one of my favorite digi stamps!) to decorate a little coffin.  One of my favorite tricks with Halloween images is to do something out of the box- like give her purple hair.  I mean if there's ever a time for non traditional it's with a Halloween image right?

And there you have it! We will hop now through October 31st at midnight Eastern, and our winners will be announced next week on the newsletter, so if you haven't signed up for it yet, you can do so at the bottom of the Some Odd Girl homepage. Happy Haunting – I mean HOPPING!

Your next stop is Anna!!

Have fun and a very Happy Halloween from all of us at Some Odd Girl!

XOXO

Hiya crafty peeps!  Just popping in to share that there's a new digi release happening over at Some Odd Girl today- and if you love those SOG critters this is one you're not going to want to miss!  I've got a little sneak peek of mister Puggles here- isn't he the cutest?!?  I can think of soooo many people in my life that he would be perfect for!
I decided to try something a little different with him as far as coloring and I'm not quite sure what I think of it...I printed him on some kraft paper and then used chalk colored pencils and q-tips for blending.  What do you think?  I'm thinking I'll stick to my Copics, lol :)
Now there are 3 images released today so make sure you hop on over to the Some Odd Girl blog to check out the rest of the amazing inspiration.  And you can pick these cuties up for yourself in the SOG shop!  Make sure to also check out the ongoing Oddtober Fest that's taking place in the Some Odd Girl Facebook group as we're having quite the shindig this month.  As always, thanks for popping in to visit me!

Epic

Hiya crafty peeps!  It's time for a new digi release over at Some Odd Girl and this week we've got the amazing Amazon Mae!  Isn't she awesome?  She was a blast to color and I can just see her being perfect for so many occasions.  The instant I saw her I knew exactly what papers I wanted to pair her with- the Bo Bunny Zoology collection from a few years ago- they just seemed to be the perfect fit- and then I went for the out-of-the-box circle card and an over sized word sticker that just seemed to fit perfectly.  
I hope that you love Amazon Mae as much as I do!  Make sure to check out some more amazing inspiration over on the Some Odd Girl blog- and if you already know you're ready to grab her up for yourself you can find her in the SOG shop :)  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today!

Thanks a Bunch!

Hi all!  I can't believe it but here we are with the last clear release for this Some Odd Girl term....and we are going out on a high note I tell you!  Today I'm sharing Bouquet Tobie with you- is he not just the cutest thing ever?  And with Easter and Mother's Day around the corner I can think of so many uses for him in addition to the normal thank you type cards.  I'm really loving making more clean and simple cards lately with bright pops of color and I have to say I think it's a style that fits SOG images really well because they get to truly stand out.

Some Odd Girl End of Term Hop

Hello, Odd friends, and welcome to Some Odd Girl‘s Fond Farewell blog hop for the 2014-15 Design Team!
The Odd Girls have had a VERY exciting year, with lots of fun events, new shop items we fell in love with, a great presence at CHA, and a whole ton of fun new releases to color and share!  We are grateful for the friendships made, the amazing inspiration from our teammates and from our Oddie friends, and for all the support the crafty world has shown us as Some Odd Girl continues to grow and expand.
Today, and for the next week, we invite you to hop with the whole team and take a little journey with us through the last year as Odd Girls.
At each Odd Girl‘s blog, you’ll find 3 of her very favorite projects created during her term, and at each Odd Girl‘s blog, there will be a digi to win.  Leave your comments at each stop, and be sure to check out the main blog HERE for the full hop list and a chance to win one grand prize.  It’s gonna be a big one!
Now, for the personal stuffs...
To say this term has been an amazing journey would be an understatement- there's so much fun that has happened along the way and lovely friendships made!  Plus I got the privilege to work with some amazing images and be on a team just bursting at the seams with inspiration.  Thanks for joining me on this journey throughout the last year...here are a few of my favorite makes from this time on the team :)
I simply LOVE the portrait stamps from Some Odd Girl!  Blooming was so much fun to color and is a totally versatile image.  I also took the opportunity to use one of the gold doily's from the SOG shop too on this little gem...

Critter images were never really my thing until I started working with Some Odd Girl.  Now I just can't seem to get enough of them- probably because they're just so darn cute and a ton of fun to color.  So I naturally had to include Holiday Pup in my top three projects from the term :)

Final card up is colorful and bright- exactly the way I picture Singer Kaylee would be if I saw her in real life!  She's a girl after my own heart with a microphone in hand and I totally wish I could rock pink hair at work- I would dye it in a second :)  And because I saved the best for last, make sure to leave a comment for a chance to win this fun digi image for yourself!
Now remember- at each Odd Girl‘s blog, you’ll find 3 of her very favorite projects created during her term, and at each Odd Girl‘s blog, there will be a digi to win.  Leave your comments at each stop, and be sure to check out the main blog HERE for the full hop list and a chance to win one grand prize.  It’s gonna be a big one!
We hop now through Tuesday, March 31st at midnight EST, when we say goodbye to the current team and get ready to kick off a whole new term.  Are you ready to hop?

Smart is Sexy

Hiya crafty peeps!  Welcome back to day two of the fabulous new clear release happening over at Some Odd Girl this week.  Today we're introducing Geeky Gwen who is a total win in my book!  What girl doesn't have her smart phone in hand these days?  And with some more killer sentiments like Smart is Sexy (oh yes it is!) and Geek Chic there are a million things you can do with this set.  Now there's a hashtag accent stamp in this set and it reminded me that I'd gotten this big wooden hashtag embellishments in one of my Swag Bags from Paper Issue's and I thought this would be the perfect time to pull it out and us it.  What a fun card base it gives, no?  
Now make sure you stop on by the Some Odd Girl blog and check out all the rest of the awesome that's on display over there by my teamie's- there's tons of great eye candy!  And after that you can pop on into the shop and pic up Geeky Gwen for your very own.  I have a feeling her and Nerdy Kody are going to be quite the hit this month!
And, as always, thanks so much for stopping by to visit me!

Talk Nerdy To Me

Hiya crafty peeps!  Guess what?  It's time for a new clear release over at Some Odd Girl and I am so excited to share it with you!  You could say it's the Age of the Geek right now and Kristy drew up the perfect images to fit right in- plus sentiments that totally rock my socks off too :)  Today we're showing off Nerdy Kody...if you like your guys complete with glasses and laptop then you are in total luck.  Plus the sentiments in this set are beyond fun- like the one I used here, Talk Nerdy To Me.  I decided to try something a little different for those non-colorers out there and tried stamping with a colored ink onto kraft cardstock.  I think it gives a totally cool effect and I'm sure I'll try this again...
Anyway, make sure you stop on by the Some Odd Girl blog to check out some more amazing inspiration from the team and then pop on into the shop to pick up this nerdy little gem all for yourself!  And make sure to stop by tomorrow to see the little nerds partner in crime- Geeky Gwen- in action!
Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Merci

Hiya crafty peeps!  Thanks for checking back in for the next new clear set from the Some Odd Girl release- Frenchie Gwen!  She is tre' cute no?  Keeping with the stamps only theme for this card I used the sentiment stamp, masked it, and then used the Eiffel Tower stamp to emboss a background and viola!  I have to say I really like the versatility of using my stamps like this and should challenge myself to step outside the box a little more often :)
Now make sure you stop on by the Some Odd Girl blog to see some more amazing inspiration and then pop on in the shop to grab this cutie, and Frenchie Kody, up all for yourself!  And don't forget to share what you make with us in the Linky party found in the sidebar of the blog- you've got all month and we love seeing your creativity!
Thanks for stopping by!

Bonjour!

Hiya crafty peeps!  Welcome to the new clear release over at Some Odd Girl- if you like international treats then wait till you see what's in store!  First up we have Frenchie Kody- quite the looker no?  I decided to try something new this time around and only use the stamps in the set to make my card (ignore the ribbon- I couldn't help myself!) :)  So I used one of the many sentiment stamps from the set- any of them would work perfect for this- stamped it in a grid pattern then heat embossed with some black embossing powder.  This is such a fun and easy trick and lets you get the most out of all the stamps in your set!  
I hope that you enjoy my little make and don't forget to stop on by the Some Odd Girl blog for tons more inspiration as well as the shop to grab him up for your very own!  Thanks for stopping by- make sure to check back tomorrow for some more frenchie fun!

You & Me

Hiya crafty peeps!  It's another new week which means another awesome new digi release is happening over at Some Odd Girl!  Today I'm going to share Girlfriends Kaylee and Mae and it's the perfect stamp to make cards for those girlfriends you love.  Whether it's a birthday, thinking of you, or even invitations to something fun like a special girls night out this image is sure to be one that you print off often :)  I've seen some cool cards lately where people have stamped onto patterned paper so I wanted to give that technique a try.  I tried to keep the paper a light color so you could easily still see the stamp and I think it turned out okay- what do you think?  It still trips me out a bit when I have a stamp and don't color it, lol!
Don't forget to make a stop over at the Some Odd Girl blog to see some more inspiration from this weeks release and then pop on into the new shop to grab her up for your very own!  As always, thanks so much for stopping by to visit me!
