Sea Ya Soon - Some Odd Girl Style

Hey peeps.  Happy Tuesday to everyone.  So you know what day it is right?  Of course you do.  It's digital release day at Some Odd Girl.  Here is Harold my new Jelly Fish.  Yup, I'm naming all my images now.  He's swimming by on my card today.  You know it's all about the beach and the waves.  So I had to break out stencil so Jelly Fish here had somewhere to hang out.  I layered the card base with a piece of vellum and stamped the sea ya soon in white embossing powder.  I had those lovely blue gems in my embellishment stash.  The hide the glue I needed to hold down my vellum.  Tricky, tricky, tricky! :-) Head on over to the SOG Shop and pick up your jelly fish to name.

Gotta run as I have a ton of things to get done today.  Sea Ya Soon.

Hugs and love~

Some Odd Girl and ARC Crafts Cross Promotion






Hey peeps.  Some exciting new to share.  Some Odd Girl and ARC Crafts are teaming up this week for a cross-promotion full of inspiration.  This is a match made in heaven.  The folks over at ARC Crafts showered us with goodies for this promotion.  They specialize in BARC wood veneer paper and boy o' boy did I have fun playing with this paper.  AND of course pairing it with a Some Odd Girl image makes it over-the-top!!!  This adorable image from Some Odd Girl is in the Princess Tia stamp set.  Isn't he cuuttee!!  I used some of the wood veneer paper to make strips on my card.  Then I punched some out with a small heart punch.

Floating On A Cloud

Hey peeps.  Welcome back.  Well my plans didn't go well for a weekend family get-away but not sad faces here.  I just know when we do get away in a a few weeks it will be well worth the delay.  
Since I had a few days to unplug, I got to coloring up some images for a few challenges I wanted to join in on.  As you all know, I LOVE my Copic markers.  So when stress comes along, I just start coloring.  It really does help to calm the nerves.  LOL  So I colored up this adorable little angel from Mo's Digital Pencil.  Since the challenge over at Mo's Digital Pencil is Wings and Things, I was right on target to get a card done.  

I used the My Favorite Things cloud background die which made putting this card together a cinch.  I used the border from the outside of the die as my border.  I then just glued a few of the clouds from the cutout onto my white background.  I also used some chalk to make random clouds around my little angel.  See how easy that way?  Easy-peasy! 

To mat my image I used my handy dandy Perfect Layers rulers and cushion mat.  To keep all the layers glued down nice and good I used my Xyron adhesive tape runner.  Well, I'm going to head back online and see what trouble I can get into.  LOL

Hugs and love~

Oh BABY!!!


Hey peeps.  Well my unplugging for the weekend was a bust.  But at least I got to relax for the day.  I'm starting to feel like this must be the time for babies.  LOL  I have gotten several requests to make baby paint cans recently.  I love making this specialized cans for new Moms-To-Be.  I get to fill them up with all kinds of goodies for the baby.  Plus I'm a sucker for a cute and unique gift idea.


Here are a few of the ones I made for some of my dearest friends.  I used 12 x 12 scrapbook paper to cover each can and then used rolls of ribbon for the fridges.  For the letters and some of the embellishments I used either my Cricut or my Silhouette to cut them out.  You have to use really good adhesive too so make sure you use Xyron products.  Once it's stuck it's stuck.  LOL  You  don't want to be embarrassed giving a gift and it falls apart later.



And the last one here is one that I made from my great nephew.  As you can tell, there is unlimited possibilities with these cans.  You can purchase empty cans at Lowe's or Home Depot.  After they remove all the stuff for the baby, they can then use it as a piggy bank, a container to keep those hot wheel cars when the boys get older or a container for baby doll clothes for the little princesses!

Well thanks for swinging by today.  I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.

Hugs and love~

Created With Love

Hey peeps.  Happy Friday everyone.  It's time for me to unplug for the weekend.  The family is heading to Florida to hang out with one of my best friends.  We always have such a great time spending time with him and his family.  And it's time for me to get my summer tan.  LOL  So before I unplug, I have one last card for you.  I joined in over at Mama Elephant, Little Tangles and The Card Concept challenges before I closed my stamp room door.  I decided to go with a clean and simple card.

I wish everyone a happy and SAFE weekend.  Make time this weekend to enjoy the simple things in life.  Time goes too fast not to.

Hugs and love~

Chillax and Enjoy

Hey peeps.  We are almost to Friday.  Another weekend is less than twenty four hours away.  Are you ready?  I'm going to be unplugging this weekend but I wanted to give you guys a little bit of inspiration to just "chillax".  We find ourselves always in a hurry and not really going anywhere or getting caught up. Remember to spend time with family and friends.  Take a moment to enjoy the sunshine and smell the roses.  Forget about all the superficial stuff, enjoy your life and your family.  I'm going to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, Simon Stays Stamp Wednesday Challenge, the Little Tangles challenge and I'll squeeze this one in as a last minute card for the Curtain Call and Naughty or Nice challenges.

Hugs and love~
