Because there hasn’t already been ENOUGH eye candy this week (and trust me, there’s going to be PLENTY more of it on Friday!), I have another fabulous clear stamp set to reveal! Leah the Orange joining you on ANOTHER dreary, rainy day in South Jersey (we’ve literally had rain every day for more than two weeks – this ess is gettin’ OLD!), and I think some of you are going to love it for the girl, while others will love it for the accessory stamps. Ready? Check out this beauty, MISS YOU MAE!
LOVE her. Love the sentiments, love all those frills on her dress, and absolutely LURRRRVE those amazing flowes. Wouldn’t they make a great CAS card, all on their own? Or a beautiful subtle resist background, perhaps? Well our Odd Girls couldn’t wait to ink up this Mae and bust out their markers, so no CAS to share today, but I’m sure there will be some examples soon! Check out what our talented ladies have done…
Rachel(oooh, those textures!)
(yay for all those fun patterns!)
(definitely more of a CAS creation – isn’t this fabulous?)
(love how the patterns of the paper become a part of a scene here!)
(nothing but a few simple shapes and embellies here and you’ve got something utterly gorje!)
And that’s how it’s done, folks. A little snip of something, a piece of paper trimmed, a flower, some bling, a shape, whatever. You don’t need a lot of supplies, you can mix and match patterns or papers to your heart’s content. Mae dresses up any project beautifully! Grab her by CLICKING HERE, and you might still get her in time to use her in our June Sketch Challenge! Oh, and you might notice a “related file” when you check her out in the shop – she has her own CUT FILE, so you can get perfect cuts on your images!
For today’s comment entry, to win a set of your choice from this release, tell me something/someone you miss and why? It could get sappy up in this joint! Be warned ;)
We don’t have a lot of entries for our challenge this month (I suspect it’s because of Odd Idol, or the fact that parents are spending lots of time with their kids now that school’s out), but if we reach 50 players, we’ll be giving away THREE prizes!
So. Off we go! Happy hump day, and thanks for stopping by today! You know we’ll be back tomorrow with another something or other, ‘cuz that’s just how we roll. Ciao!
Oh hello there, Odd friends! Leah the Orange here to share just another fabby sentiment set that’s now available at the Some Odd Girl shop! You know Kristy loves to combine fonts and bring those bold, graphic designs, and this one is certainly no exception! We LURRRRVE the options for SMASHing and scrapping and the possibilities for your other crafties are only limited by your own creativity! Check out BE YOU, our latest in clear sentiment sets:
FUN, isn’t it?! Well the Odd Girls certainly thought so.
Check out some samples using this set – I don’t know about you, but
my mind is just brimming with new ideas!
Yeah. Lots of ideas right now, how about you? We’d love to see what your mind conjures up for this set! You can GRAB IT HERE, and share your projects in our Facebook group, or maybe at Some Odd World, where there’s always something fun and exciting going on!
For today’s entry into our giveaway I want to know what is something that makes you YOU?
We’ll be back tomorrow with another clear set, and stay tuned when the FINAL FIVE‘s creations for Odd Idol are revealed on FRIDAY! Can you handle the suspense?! Yeah, we’re biting our nails here, too.
G’morning Oddies! Kristy here with you on this bright and sunny summer day bringing you some new goodies as part of our June Clear Stamp Release. Today the Odd Girls have some fabulous and beautiful inspiration using the new 4×3 set, Dare to Be Gwen!
I hope these make you happy!
I always love how the Odd Girls have so many different takes on the same set Gwen can be as fancy or as casual as you’d like her to be. The sequin craze going on might be the perfect addition to her skirt too *hint*
This fun set has sentiments that work together or separately and are great for your Cards, Project Life or getting your scrap on! We also have cut files for the release up in the shop in our New Release section to make your fussy cutting a little less fussy.
Now release time wouldn’t be the same without a giveaway! Leave a comment below telling me what you would be if you Dared to Be anything? to get you entered to win the set of your choice from this week’s new sets! I’ll have another chance for you to enter tomorrow so stay tuned! In the meantime hop over to the shop to see all the releases and visit the Odd Girls’ blogs to find out more about these awesome projects.
So today is going to be a SUPER happy day for some people, and a super sad day for some others. Either way, I must tell you that we were absolutely MINDBLOWN by the latest flurry of entries for Odd Idol. Our hopefuls really took the “scene” theme and ran with it, knocked it out of the ballpark, sent it around the world with a good, swift kick, and it landed on my doorstep with a huge explosion. They wowed us, I know they wowed you, and voting was NOT easy!
At any rate, I have the pleasure of announcing the five FINALISTS for Odd Idol today, and I’ve got goosebumps even writing this post, because they’re just really that good! Believe me when I say it is VERY difficult to say goodbye to five others, but the game advances and we must PRESS ON, PEOPLE!
Are you ready for this?
Without further ado…
YOUR FINAL FIVE ODD IDOL CONTESTANTS ARE…..
(in no particular order)
We say goodbye this time to Tara, Janine, Charlene, Aeryn and Angie. Ladies, thank you for pouring your hearts and souls into your creations for Odd Idol, and we sincerely hope you’ve enjoyed yourselves! (I know we’ve definitely enjoyed your creations, your spirit, and your company!) We appreciate the enthusiasm you’ve shown and the sportsmanship toward your fellow Odd Idol contestants, and we are truly sad to see you go.
On the flip side, CONGRATS, Final Five! The people have voted, and you will all be moving forward, but OH MY GOOMIE, you have ONE more assignment ahead of you, and it’s a doozie! ;)
Once again… here’s the prize, estimated at nearly $900 in value:
We cannot thank our amazingly generous sponsors enough for this unbelievable prize pack. Our Odd Idol grand prize winner is going to get some of THE happiest mail on the planet! (You have to feel sorry for their mailperson though!) To visit our awesome sponsors’ websites, links are in the sidebar!
But now it’s time to announce the FINAL theme for our competition. This is it, folks. The grand finale. The head honcho. The grand poobah, and the round that will determine who gets all that crazy swag. Let’s do it.
Final Five… Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is this:
Create a 3-piece coordinating set that includes at least one Some Odd Girl image on each.
You must create 3 DIFFERENT pieces, but they can be ANYTHING. There is a LOT of room for interpretation here, but some examples might be: card, tag/bookmark, box, bag, banner, frame, journal, Project Life page, cupcake topper, canvas, scrapbook page, wall hanging, clothing, tote, jewelry, etc… The world is your oyster here! Just remember your three projects must be different from each other but they must somehow go together. Choose any theme you’d like, use any images you’d like, submit only ONE photo that showcases the set, and HAVE FUN WITH IT! You will have until WEDNESDAY, June 19th at midnight EST to email your projects to Faye, and the voting begins on Friday, June 21st. Remember, if you have any questions, Faye is your go-to for all things Idol, and please don’t hesitate to ask if you need clarification! This is it, and we know you’re nervous and excited, but please also remember the rules:
1. You must use Some Odd Girl stamps as the MAIN FOCUS of your creations. If you use stamps from any other companies, they must have a minimal impact on your final project. Judges will use discretion when reviewing submissions (remember, the sooner you submit, the better, in case our judges ask you to make any changes).
3. Absolutely no watermarks will be allowed.
4. You will not post your projects anywhere in order that all submissions may be judged blindly. In other words, you cannot in any way indicate that the project is yours by way of sneak peeks, hints (anything on your blogs, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, galleries, etc.) or comments around the web. Please do not email a friend to tip them off; chances are that friend knows someone who knows someone who knows someone, and as the grand prize is very valuable, we ask that you kindly respect this rule. This truly is not a popularity contest.
5. As mentioned, this competition will be judged blindly. Invite people to vote, advertise the competition, but do not indicate which project belongs to you. Everyone can vote ONCE between June 21st and June 26th. Go to Some Odd World to place your vote – in order to access the Community, voters must be registered members.
6. You may post your projects anywhere you like ONLY after voting has closed for this round.
7. Make your entry count! Try something different, pay attention to detail, consider things that might set your project apart from the others, take great photos with neutral backgrounds. You have reached the final round! (Congratulations! You’ve earned it!) Only ONE PERSON will take home this ridiculously OSS prize.
8. Failure to comply with any of the items 1 through 7 will result in disqualification from Odd Idol, whether or not voting is shown in your favor.
So. On the count of three…. ONE…. TWO….. THREE! And they’re off!
P. S. – for those of you who are itching to get their ODD on, we only have 14 entries for our June Sketch Challenge so far, and we’re hoping to get to 50! We can’t do it without your help, so tell your friends about it! It’s a fabby little sketch, and there’s loads of inspiration and plenty of time left. Just CLICK HERE. Please?
Morning, Odd friends! It’s Thursday, and that means voting has ended for Round 4 of Odd Idol and TOMORROW we will announce the final five! Stay tuned, folks. There’s some amazing stuff coming your way.
TODAY, I am absolutely ECSTATIC to share a little something from our Guest Odd Girl for the month of June, Charlene Bopp! She won her guest spot via a contest at Some Odd World, and we’re gonna WOW you with this one! Not only is Charlene‘s style WONDERFULLY clean and simple, with bold pops of color and fun combinations, but this is a new little lady available at the Some Odd Girl shop… it’s Pouting Princess Tia! Check her out:
LOVE this bookmark, and I might just have to stop by my neighbor’s house in New Jersey to steal this little project for the next book I’m about to read. Whatcha think? Pretty lovely, isn’t it? We love this girl’s style and we can’t wait to share another project from our Guest Odd Girl later in the month.
Be sure to drop by Charlene’s blog to see more of her work – we’re rather smitten over here! Have a fabulous day, friends, and we’ll see you tomorrow when the final five are unveiled!
