SOG Inspiration

Good morning, peeps! I come to you today with a Some Odd Girl Inspiration post. Do you have a last minute gift to prepare for Christmas? This is the perfect quick gift solution. All you need are a few tools, a cute SOG image and some hot cocoa! I used Cuppa Mae (digi) because she just seemed perfect for this project and a sentiment from Warm Wishes Tia.

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration! Don't forget to join us this month for the Make Your Own Background challenge and there are always lots of fun happenings in the Ning community! Hope to see you there soon!

SOG - Digi Release Day - Super Mae and Sweet Kiss Kody

Oh my goodness, the digi release this week is SO MUCH FUN! I say this as if I don't love every SOG image, which I do, but I have a serious soft spot for super heroes and my husband (more on that later)

 To start with, we have Super Mae, who is so super cute. I went round and round on what color costume to give her, but I knew I wanted something classically bright! I added some sentiments from Moulin Mae and Make a Statement clear stamps and I think they work perfectly!


And then there is Sweet Kiss Kody, which brings us back to my We met 14 years ago, and this was the ideal image for a card to celebrate the event. Painted wood veneer embellishments are my new favorite thing. With a sentiment from the new I DO clear set, Seth was very happy with his card. It's up on the card shelf by his bed. So cute. 

Thank you all for stopping by. I know Christmas is just around the corner and everyone is so busy, but don't forget about the December Make Your Own Background challenge over on the SOG Blog!

SOG Featured Digi - Snowman Tobie

This month, our featured digi is the oh-so-appropriate Snowman Tobie! I hear rumors from way down here in Florida that everyone north of me is snowed in. Pity. *Grins* I'm just kidding. I actually envy all the snowbirds. I could use some hot cocoa right about now, but it's hard to work up to it when it's 85 degrees outside.

This was my first attempt coloring snow, and I had so much fun with adding texture and shading. I thought the sentiment from Snow Bunny is just perfect. Thanks for visiting and Warm Wishes from down here in Florida!

SOG - Digi Release Day - Library Mae

It's Tuesday, and you know what that means! Digi Release Day over at Some Odd Girl! WOOHOO!! This week there are two new images, Library Mae and Reading Tia! This week I've made a project with Library Mae. Isn't she sweet? I love the expression on her face as she tries to blow a lock of hair out of her face without setting down her massive pile of books!
I also dig the little detail of pencils in her hair! This is also my first time ever using Washi tape. I know, crazy, right? We're almost halfway through the SOG Monthly challenge, so maybe you want to grab one of these smart gals and use it for you challenge entry. *Nudge nudge*We also just started our Hol-ODD-Day Hop yesterday, and it's a good chance to see amazing gift ideas as well as an opportunity to win tons of fun prizes!

WELCOME to our Hol-ODD-Day Hop!  ‘Tis the season for the Odd Girls to get their craft on, and whip up some fun things just in time for the holidays!   Some Odd Girl is very happy to bring you our annual…


This year, we are VERY happy to bring you some of our gift and decor ideas that we hope will inspire you as we all head into the home stretch!  Today, we HOP!  All you have to do is visit all of the blogs below and leave some love at each stop.
You should have arrived from Isha’s blog – if so, you’re definitely on the right track!  :)   If not, CLICK HERE to get to the beginning ‘cuz you won’t want to miss a beat!

There are some random thingies to be won here and there, but I can’t tell you exactly where!  You might also notice that we have a guest crafter or two  joining us this week! (One joins us today – woo hoo! – and the other will pop up in the week and we’ll give you an extra chance to win!)  
Needless to say, we have had a TON of fun making our Hol-ODD-Day projects, and we hope you have fun hopping with us!  Ready?  Here’s the hop list!

This project was so much fun, getting to really think about something other than cards and scrapbook pages and making something super gifty instead! I LOVE making jewelry, so I thought what better way to show off the awesome ways you can use the SOG stamps than to make a necklace with one! I stamped the poppy from Believe onto a page from Snow White & Rose Red. I colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Markers and then sealed it with glue, making sure to fuzz the red around the edges to give it a nice vintage feel. Then I just popped on a glass cabochon, trimmed around the edges and adhered it to a necklace base I made.

So, hop around, take your time, leave your comments between now and Sunday, December 15th and we’ll have some winners to announce on Monday, the 16th!  There may or may not be a stamp set or two up for grabs.  There may ALSO be (or maybe not!) some of the new Odds & Ends to win!  ANNNND there may even be some extras.  But you’ll have to join us throughout the week to find out!

Now you’re off to Lesley’s blog!  Enjoy the hop, Oddies, and we’ll be showing details of some of the projects throughout the week, so drop by and watch for your bonus chances to win!

SOG Digi Release Day - Pajama King Tobie

Are you ready for a new digi release? Of course you are, what a silly question. This week there are adorable new Tobie & Tia stamps in the shop! I worked on the new Pajama King Tobie! He reminds me a bit of Max from Where the Wild Things Are...only cooler. *Grins*

Isn't he a brave little king? I love his little paper crown and and paper sword and how gleeful he looks. You'll look gleeful as you color him to! Give it a try!

SOG-Monthly Challenge-Create your own background

Hullo there! We have a new challenge for you this month over at the Some Odd Girl blog! This month the challenge is to make your own background! You can use anything. Stamps, inks, Washi, whatever you want! For my contribution, I went ALL background and used ALL THE STAMPS!! Okay, maybe not all of them, but most of them....

It was a lot of fun making this card background, taking all the sentiment stamps and setting them up to fit together into a cool pattern. What do you think of the results? The stamps I used are listed here: Everyday Smiles, Make A Statement, Geisha Kaylee, Moulin Mae, Artist Mae, Hey Mae, Puppy Love Mae, Thank You Mae & Dare to Be Gwen....I think that covers it. HA!
