Some Odd Girl Saying Goodbye

Hey Everyone,

I have been a member of the Some Odd Girl Design Team for 2 years and this is my last month!  I have loved every minute of it.  I think the reason why I love my Some Odd Girl is that Kristy really makes stamps that can be used in so many different ways.  I love to include the awesome sentiments and critters on my layouts as well as the obvious cards.  There are a ton of fun cut files that are perfect for scrapping as well.  I just love everything!

The team was asked to have a post with our 3 favorite projects that we made this term.  Here are mine:

On this layout I used the awesome sentiments but I also used the paper collection, wood veneer and sequins.

On this layout I used the "extra" stamps that you get in each set.  The gears and triangles were just perfect for this layout about my son's Pine Wood Derby car.

This layout does not feature any of the stamps but it does feature my Title using the Cut File Chill Sentiment.  Like I said before there is something for everyone in the Some Odd Girl shop!

Now this is where the fun begins becuase I got to pick one item to giveaway from the shop and I picked the Cut File Chill Sentiment.  You need to leave a comment below!  Leah, from Some Odd Girl will pick the winner!

Be sure to stop by the SOME ODD GIRL BLOG to find all the links to the design team members that are leaving and each member is giving away one of their favorite things.  All the winners will be placed on the blog as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back soon.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Core'dinations St. Patrick's Day Card

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I wanted to share with you a fun card I made using Core'dinations and Paper Smooches!  I just love the embossing on the yummy green cardstock and then on the tag I just wanted to have some fun with my stamping and coloring!  Love how it turned out!
Anyone doing anything fun this St. Patty's Day?  No huge plans here.  Busy with work, school, and sports practice!!  But at least it is warmer!!

I am linking this really fun card up with the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge- AnyThing Goes!!  They always have fun challenges!

Hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!

Core'dinations St. Patrick's Day Layout

Happy Wednesday

I was playing around with my Core'dinations cardstock for one of my DT projects and I say this really cool Silhouette cut file for the lace shamrock background.  I knew I wanted that to be the focul point of my layout.  So I found last year's photo of my cuties and got busy.  Here is what I came up with.

I am not sure that you can see the layered pattern paper under the photo but Core'dinations is starting to make pattern paper.  I used various colors of green and yellow.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will see you soon. Have a wonderful and crafty day.

Lawnscaping Challenge 101

Happy Sunday,

The brand new Lawnscaping Challenge 101 was posted a couple of days ago and it totally had my mind racing for ideas!  The challenge is to use dots and stripes!  I knew I wanted to create a layout using some of the awesome Lawn Fawn paper.  I had several of the dots and stripes papers and so I got busy!
Click HERE to see all the details!
Here is what I came up with!
I combined the dots and stripe papers with some other Lawn Fawn papers and this is what I came up with.  The photo is of the boys on Easter 2013.  I love this photo of the two of them.  I then added some Lawn Fawn flair and some Lawn Fawn stamps to finish off the layout!  I totally LOVE how this turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I have been really creative lately so I will be stopping in frequently!  See you soon.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Some Odd Girl Nerdy Kody

Happy Monday and Happy March!

Today is the new release from Some Odd Girl for the clear stamps.  Today I introduce Nerdy Kody!  Isn't he just so good looking?  I love  him.  I colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers and for my card I used the Some Odd Girl paper collection along with the wood veneer.
For my sentiment I tried some masking becuase I wanted that heart to be red.  It worked out pretty well!

I will be back tomorrow with a look at Nerdy Gwen.  Have a great day!

Lawn Fawn Snow Day Fun

Happy Wednesday!

I am popping in today to share a really quick layout I did yesterday.  This is the first layout that I have done for myself in close to a year.  Can  you believe that?  I am so behind in my scrapping that I was a bit overwhelmed and then I just went into my computer and picked a month and picked some of my favorite photos and got busy.  I found these really cute photos of my hubby and oldest son sledding on a hill in our neighborhood.  The two of them had such a great time and I was so happy I got to capture it.  The photos aren't the greattest but I don't care because it is the memory to me not the quality of the photo.

I wanted a really easy design and went with a basic grid design that I use very often.  I have had this Lawn Fawn paper collection for awhile and have been wanting to use it so I broke it out!  I went with a very basic clean look for this one.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful and crafty day.
