You’ll LOVE the new digi stamp bundles at Some Odd Girl!

Hi, there! Welcome to our second week of showcasing special themed digi stamp bundles in the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store!
There are four new digi bundles this week, each containing four digi stamps. My first card features Cupid Mae, one of the four digi stamps in the “Love” bundle
My second card features “Love Letter.” (The “Love” bundle also includes “Sweet Kiss Kody” and “Hand Holding Mae and Kody.” With the stamp bundles, you get all four digis together at a special discount price!): 

The layout on this card is inspired by the current sketch at retro sketches (#145):
Stop by the Some Odd Girl Store to purchase the “Love” digi set or any of the other special bundles! Here’s a look at all four images in the “Love” digi bundle: Love Letter, Hand Holding Mae and Kody, Sweet Kiss Kody and Cupid Mae:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

LOVE is in the air with the new SOG digis!

Hey there, everybody! I’m sharing two new cards today that I made with the digis being released today at Some Odd Girl
My first card features “Hand Holding Mae & Kody“, and it also happens to be the card I made to give to my husband for Valentine’s Day!
Some Odd Girl supplies: digital stamp (“Hand Holding Mae & Kody“); Other supplies: designer paper (“Head Over Heels” mini pad – Echo Park), wood heart accent (Freckled Fawn), heart dimensional stickers (Prima Marketing), various Copic markers, white opaque marker (American Crafts).
My second card features “Grand Couple”, the second new SOG digi in today’s release! I picked a sentiment from the “Threshold Mae” clear set to go with the image.
Some Odd Girl Supplies: digital stamp image “Grand Couple“, sentiment “Threshold Mae” clear set. Other supplies: wood heart chips (Freckled Fawn), designer paper (Basic Grey – Bittersweet {retired}), heart dimensional stickers (Prima Marketing), assorted Copic markers.
I colored the wood hearts to match my project with the chisel end of some Copics, then added the heart “gem” in the middle. I often use the chisel end of my Copics when I’m coloring something and I’m not sure how well the surface will work with the markers. The hearts colored up beautifully, though!
So glad you stopped by for a visit today! If you haven’t already, join SOG’s new Facebook group…there are always fun discussions going on! Recent topics have included craft room furniture, storing markers, printing digital images, and we’re all getting to know our fellow group members!
Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!

You’ll {heart} the featured digi at Some Odd Girl!

Happy Monday to you! Hope you had a great weekend!
I’m popping in today with a card that I made with the new featured digi at the Some Odd Girl Store! And, with Valentine’s Day coming up this Friday, it’s a perfect time to snag this one!
Here’s “2 Hearts Kody and Mae“, which is 35% off in the SOG Store for the next two weeks:
I made the sentiment with word stamps from SOG’s “I Do” and “Dare to Be Gwen” clear sets. The heart accent is from the “Flirty Mae” clear set.
For the layout, I used Deconstructed Sketch #137:
When I was at CHA last month, my friend Thanh & I went to a hockey game one night. Before the game, we stopped by Sprinkles Cupcakes in downtown L.A.

 I was excited when I found out there’s a location near us in D.C., so Scott and I picked up some cupcakes on Saturday. I love that they also have mini doggie cupcakes…and our doggie did, too! We bought one to see if he’d like it and cut in in half.  

He loved it!
Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back tomorrow with a card featuring one of the newest digi stamps at Some Odd Girl! Hope you have a wonderful week!

A sweet new digi at Some Odd Girl!

HEY, HEY Oddies! Are you ready for some fresh digi inspiration? Then, you’re in luck! My card for today features “Sweet Kiss Kody,” one of two new digis available today in the Some Odd Girl Store!
(The sentiment and speech bubble are from the “I Do” clear set, which was released earlier this month.)
AWWWW…looks like Kody is getting a little “sugar” from Mae…
Don’t forget that our monthly challenge is still open! Our theme for this month is “Make Your Own Background”, and you can find inspiration and all the details for this challenge at the SOG blog! AND, there’s always something new at our ning community, Some Odd World, so stop by and say HI!

Hi, everybody! Are you ready for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge? I know you’ll find this week’s challenge wishy-washi wonderful! That’s right…we’re inspired by washi tape (real or faux)!

Valentine’s Day: The Grim Creeper Returns!

It’s Valentine’s Day, and whether it’s a holiday you love or loathe, we hope you’ll LOVE the cards we’ve created for you today!

In case you’re wondering what this is all about, some of my crafting besties and I came up with ideas for “stalker sentiments” on one of our very, very late night crafty chats. 

We had our first “Grim Creeper” hop on Halloween, and the response was so great, we wanted to share some more with you on Valentine’s Day with another blog hop!

The idea behind these cards is to subtly surprise and creep you out.  I am sort of ashamed to admit, but these come easy to me…maybe I watch too many crime-related TV shows or scary movies, but some of the sentiments were pretty easy to come up with! 

So, I have two cards to share with you today! They both feature some free retro photos I found online and each has a “stalker sentiment” from our ever-growing list.

Your next stop on our “Grim Creeper” hop is Aileen’s blog! (You can find the full list of hop participants at the bottom of my post!)

Don’t worry, I’ll be back to my regular schedule tomorrow with a blog hop to celebrate The Greeting Farm‘s newest release…it’s simply to DIE for!

Thanks for stopping by! I’d love to hear from you! I read all of the comments that y’all leave for me…and if you have any questions about my these or any of my cards, I’ll definitely answer them!

retro sketches #50

How’s it going, everybody? I’m just popping in today to share my card for this week’s retro sketches challenge (#50)!
To create this card, I used the “Vintage Clocks” stamp set by The Craft’s Meow and papers from Authentique’s “Lovely” paper pad. 
Other supplies: kraft card stock, foam tape, watermark ink, white embossing powder, sewing machine, heart brad (Queen & Co.).
Here’s the sketch that inspired my card (the only change I made is that I flipped the sentiment banner):
