SOG Digi Tuesday - Cookies

Hello again! Today I bring you one of the new images from the Some Odd Girl digi release. This one is called Cookies and it's a super sweet stamp that totally reminds me of my grandmother. She's so sweet (and so are her cookie treats!)

Isn't she adorable? My grandmother (really my husband's grandmother, but I adopted her as my own) always has food waiting for us when we get to her house and always sends us home with loads more! I think she'd love this card! (I'm pretty sure these are snickerdoodles she's serving up, which happen to be my fave!)

There is just a wee bit more time left to get your entry in for this month's challenge - Tag! You're It! Don't forget to enter for a chance to win some awesome prizes!

SOG Digi Tuesday - Ribbons

This image is stunning. There is really no other word for it. I know there was just recently an awesome wedding release out, but this image feels so bridal and beautiful to me. But then, it also seems vintage and tropical too!

You all should seriously pick up this image today! It's so much fun to color, and she'd make an awesome hair/skin practice image for anyone who likes to experiment with different color combos. I added a sentiment from Grow, which is totally on sale right now and about to be retired, so you should order that too if you haven't already!

Loverly Cards

Hi there! This is my very first project to enter at the Paper Issues blog! This month the challenge is You Are Just My Type and I thought that a sweet Valentine's Day card for my even sweeter husband was just the ticket!

I used papers & embellishments from the Fancy Pants Beloved line (here, here & here) and First Dance Mae from Some Odd Girl. 

I hope you enjoy my newest card and yes. I have serious Paper Issues.

SOG Featured Digi - Spectacular Soiree

For the next couple weeks, Some Odd Girl will be offering Spectacular Soiree for a discounted price! WOOT! This digi is so perfect for birthday cards, party invites, anything really!

It was so much fun coloring this image to give each girl their own personality! And I paired it up with some of the Arrow Cards cut files to make it a fun tri-fold card!

It's kind of funny, because in my head I've always seen Mae and Kody together, with Tia and Tobie as their kids and Kaylee as Mae's spunky best pal. Ha! I've totally made a story in my head for Kristy's fun characters! How about you guys? How do you see this little trio?

SOG Community Challenge - Mix and Match color

This week in the SOG Ning Community, the challenge is to use color! You have to mix and match 3 of the following 4 colors: Turquiose, Lime Green, Yellow and Pink

 I used Birthday Mae and the sentiment from Baker Mae for this awesomely funtastic card. It's going to my best friend Brenna for her birthday, who we call Bakerella, so I think it's totes appropriate, don't you? This color combo makes me so happy! Let's see what you guys do with it! And don't forget about our Monthly Challenge. This month is TAGS! Who doesn't love those, right?

SOG CHA Sneak Peek - Hipster Kody

Are you feeling cool today, Oddies? Ironically so, perhaps? Well, have I got a sneaky treat for you! Alexis here with today CHA sneaky peek and today it's Hipster Kody! I love this whole release, but I have to admit, I kind of have a crush on this stamp. Maybe it's the cool guy glasses, or maybe it's the man purse, but I have a feeling it has more to do with his uncanny resemblance to Johnny Depp...*Clears throat* Okay, back to business. Here is the card I made for CHA using this awesome stamp and one of the super cool sentiments that comes with the set.

Hipster Kody
Now I bet you can't wait to see more! Well, you're in luck, because at 9am Eastern time tomorrow we'll have one last super sneaky sneak peek for you...what will it be, can you guess? While you wait, why not enter our January Tag! You're it! Challenge?! I think it's a good idea and I'll bet Hipster Kody would think you were pretty rad if you do!

January Challenge - Tag! You're it!

Hello there! So, welcome to my first post of the new year! Today I bring you my project for the Some Odd Girl January monthly challenge. The theme this month is to work a tag (or tags) into your creation! I did a kid's birthday card with this one and made a pocket on the front to hold the tag. I think it's great for a young kid who likes to read REAL books because they can take the tag out and use it as a bookmark!

I used the lion and sentiment from the recently released clear set On Safari and the birthday sentiment from Birthday Mae.

I'm excited to see what the rest of you do with this challenge! Don't forget to enter your project here and you could win this month's prize!
