Its about that time! I know some have been looking forward to this and I’m one of them! 

We are looking for 1 lucky and talented crafter to join us for a 2 month guest spot for December and January! You’ll join us for our challenges and releases, be featured on our blog along side the Odd Girls and in general, just have FUN! You’ll receive digis and clear stamps from coming releases and have your picture on our side bar for your 2 month spot.

What’s the challenge? 


I want to see YOU at your best using our stamps and digis. No theme, no particulars. The only rules is you MUST use one of our images and you CAN’T combine this with any other challenge. Be focused and bring your A game to the craft table! You have thru Nov 20 to link up below then on Nov 21 we’ll be voting on our Top 10 as chosen by me. This is merit based and not random which is why I want to see your best 🙂 We’ll vote Nov 21 – 25 with the winner joining us for their first challenge, and introduction, on Dec 1.

Go forth, get odd and create!



This week we debuted our new line of stamps called the Nouveau Girls so I thought, what better challenge to keep the celebration going than an inspiration challenge! Be inspired by this 1902 piece by Alphonse Mucha, who is called the father of Art Nouveau, the Thisle from the Sands. Maybe the colors will inspire you or some of the design elements, we just need to be able to clearly see the inspiration. Tell us what it is if you are unsure. 🙂 

Let’s see how our Odd Girls were inspired…

Kristy used Believe

Robin used Believe

Amy used Grow

Vera used Bliss

Melissa used Believe

 There are so many ways to be inspired for this challenge! I know you’ll have lots of fun with it 🙂 You have thru Nov 15th to enter this challenge, when the linky closes its over. Make sure to link back to this new blog and all projects must be new for this challenge. No backdating, we check 🙂 You don’t have to use a Some Odd Girl digi or stamp as part of your challenge but you’ll get 2 entries if you do! So worth it! Why worth it? The prize this challenge, because I’m in a celebrating mood is your choice of 1 of the 3 new Nouveau Girls stamps! You could be bringing home Bliss, Grow or Believe, see? Worth it! 

Link up and hop over to the Nouveau Girls blog to see what special project is being shared today!



I hope everyone enjoyed our hop! It sure sounded like it! Remember there are more totally inspirational posts going on this week at our sister blog, the Nouveau Girls. Cor and Melissa have some fun things in store!

Our Black and White Colored Image Challenge was definitely different and tough but you all stepped up to it with some amazing projects! Seriously! Great work! For some it was your first time giving it a go and you all looked like seasoned pros, big pat on the back! So our winner, of 2 digis of their choice from the shop, as chosen by is…

Congrats Susan! Love the amazing texture you have in your creation and coloring! Fabulous! Email me (see the contact link above) to collect your goodies.

Next off we have two favs and like I said, such amazing projects made picking just two extremely tough! I ended up picking this first one because of the unique design and how she approached the challenge…

Love the black and white polaroid look! So clever Pammu! Our second fav I picked because the design was so fun and lovely and I noticed that she consciously went with greys (Cool Greys) to match the color scheme of her project. It really brought it all together!

So gorgeous Karyn! Great shading job too! Its those little things sometimes, you might not think anyone will notice but they do and appreciate thought you put in 🙂 Pammu and Karyn, grab our fav blinkies on the right and wear them proudly! 

Tomorrow we’ll have our first challenge hosted in our new home AND it will get you thinking in the nouveau style. See you then and STAY ODD!
