SOG Team
“I’m a 28 year old girl from Jakarta, Indonesia. I live with my husband
of 3 years who also happens to be my best friend hehe. I also work as a
radio DJ as my first love would always be music. I’m a hybrid crafter
who constantly looks for ways to craft frugally. I love coloring and
have used different techniques but most of all I really love markers and
also pencil color and OMS technique. SOG is my first ever stamping
design team and I’m so psyched to be here!!”

Anna Maria Nilsson/Rimna – Blog: Rimna’s Skafferi
 
SOG/NG Team
“My name is Anna Maria, but on the Internet my nickname is Rimna. I’m a
stamp crazy 36 years old girl from the small country of Sweden.
I discovered the world of stamps in 2004 and now I am stuck (for real). I live in a small old ho
use
with my man and our three children. I work as a childminder for five
small childrens and I’m surrounding myself with laughter, crafts and
children hugs. I just love the Some Odd Girls stamps and it’s so much
fun coloring them up and “bringing them to life”. It’s a great honor to
be part of this team and I look forward to an exciting time here at Some
Odd land!”

Meredith Winston – Blog: Paper Canteen
 
 
SOG Team
“I’m a stay at home Mum of 2 small, beautiful, delicious and often sticky children, one furry and luscious Pit bull-mutt named Katie, as well as being married to the love of my life for 15 years. I’ve always loved art, crafting and photography. I find time every single day to work one or all of these into the mere 24 hours that we have daily. I find it fulfills my soul, my mind and keeps my “zen” in check.”

Ilene Tell – Blog:  What a Bunch of Scrap

 
NG Team
“Hi everyone, my name is Ilene Tell and I’m so excited to be an Odd Girl!
I’ve been scrapbooking for  while now, and relatively recently I
discovered the fun world of cute stamps and Copic makers. I’ve been
hooked ever since. I have two kids and I’ve been with my husband fr 16
years now. My daughter is my biggest cheerleader and Odd Girl in
training. My style tends to be somewhat artsy and fun, and full of
details and shabby elements. I love to add special touches like paint,
mixed media, hand stitching, etc. Scrapbooking, making cards, and
coloring images is my creative outlet and my “me” time. I can’t wait to
get started on this new journey and meet all the like-minded Odd Girls
out there!”

Barbara Sproat – Blog: Forgotten Scraps
NG Team
“This is Barbara (aka ForgottenScraps) with a big “Howdy” from Texas! I’m thrilled to be here and to share my creations and ideas with everyone! I’ve been into arts and crafts since I could run with scissors and my main hobby is scrapbooking. However, I’ve been making cards for over ten years and my hobby room is overflowing. (Don’t worry, I’m sure I can fit more!) Random facts about me: I also love to draw, read, take naps and play with toys – I’m just a kid at heart. 😀 I’m a night owl and make most of my cards after everyone goes to bed. As for the rest of the day, like most of us, I’m a headless chicken. Owls and chickens – ‘who’ knew they’d go so well together! I look forward to creating along side this amazing team!”

Annette Allen – Blog: My Clever Creations
 
SOG Team

“Hi My name is Annette Allen, I am a housewife and I love the Lord. I have been married for 17 years to a wonderful man. I am from Colorado but have had the opportunity to travel the world. I am now a California girl and my favorite shoes are flip flops and flip flops. I have two dogs that are like my children and they totally rule the house. I would like to think of myself as a fun person. I try and enjoy each day and live it to the fullest. My pleasures are crafting, camping and traveling. I started making cards back in 1997 and have not paused for a minute. I am and forever will be a crafter. I like to explore new places and try new things. Thank you for letting me share a little bit about myself. I hope that you will enjoy my creations and look forward to new friendships.”
 
“Happy Crafting.”

Leah Crowe – Blog: Not Home Alone
 
SOG Team

“Hello friends! My name is Leah Crowe, mid 30’s, married to my sweetheart, Doug for the last 8 years, been together 16 years total. (Yeah, took him awhile to propose.. hehe) I’m also a stay at home mom and have three children ages 15, 6, and 5. They keep me pretty busy when they are home, so I find myself able to get crafty during the day or after they’ve been put to bed for the night. My husband not only supports my love of crafting, he’s usually the first one to go out and buy me the things I love off my wish list. I’m very fortunate to have such a sweet man in my life. When I’m not crafting or playing Zuma Blitz on Facebook, I enjoy lounging in bed watching TV Shows with the hubs or playing games with the kids. I started scrapbooking in March 2006, but started taking it more seriously the last couple of years. I LOVE to create layouts about the everyday moments.. it’s the little things I know I’ll forget in like 5 minutes… 😉 I love all colors, espesh lime green and I also adore smilie faces! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I am overjoyed to be joining my fellow ODDies here at Some Odd Girl!”

Iwona Palamountain – Blog: Random Acts of Creativity
 
SOG Team
 
“Hello SOGgies! My name is Iwona, I’m also known by my nickname Chupa in the blogging world. I’ve been an avid card maker for about three years, and I savour every minute of it. When I’m not cutting into paper, you can find me playing with my 2yo daughter, reading and spending time with the family. Being a SAHM, to have a hobby that brings joy, satisfaction and expands horizons, is a precious gift. I love colouring and I can’t resist the cuteness in each of the SOG images. I’m still learning my Copics but I’m looking forward have my skills polished (and my collection of markers expanded, LOL)

I’m very happy to have the opportunity to join the Team, and I hope that I’ll bring you some inspiration along the way :)”

Faye Wynn-Jones – Blog: Stampin Fluffnstuff

SOG Team
 
“Hellio!  I’m Faye; AKA Fluff, Monica, (think Friends.) Wife, Mum, Obsessive Cumpulsive, Self-confessed Stashoholic and E-mail/ Blog Stalker. I inhabit a strange, quirky and fluffy place called FayeWorld, but I can be momentarily lured back to Earth with cakes and/ or choklit. Married to Very Understanding Hubby, who loves me, even though I regularly sneak Illegal and Naughty Stash through Baggage Control. (But I neeeeeeeeeed it!) I’d like to say our son, Sweet Cheeks keeps me out of mischief, but I have an uncanny knack for finding and getting into trouble. However, he does keep me busy! When I’m not being Mummy, I will often be found in The Flufferie, my craft room, along with a substantial stash of jelly beans. Oh, happy days!”

Hi ya everyone and welcome to another fabulous challenge here at Some Odd Girl.  We loved all the sparkle from the last challenge!  Wow, we had so many glorious creations and we loved each one!  Check out the winner’s post yesterday to see our gorgeous favs and the challenge winner.

Today we are kicking off a few changes here at the Some Odd Girl blog that we want you to be aware of. First off our challenge is going monthly. We wanted to do this to be able to have better challenges with bigger prizes! Kind of our way to thank you. Our challenges will kick off on each month beginning on the 1st. This one is a little different because of the new Odd Girls introductions but the 1st will be our norm. Winners will be announced on the last day of the month.

Going along with that we are making it a requirement to use a Some Odd Girl image (Clear Stamp, Digi or Sentiment) on your challenge entry. With the bigger prizes we want to reward our creative and talented Oddie customers for being… well, AWESOME! Lastly, our challenges are going to be streamlined and we’ll be switching between a Color Inspiration Challenge, like this month, and a Sketch Challenge. That way you have that many more options to create you entry. 

To kick off our new challenge format we wanted to offer a fun and bright color challenge this time!

 COLOR INSPIRATION CHALLENGE

Wow, aren’t those GORGEOUS colors!  The challenge is simple, use these colors as inspiration for your creations!  If you don’t have those exactly, come as close as you can, we’re not that picky 😉 The design team had so much fun with these colors and it’s obvious in their ODDulous creations!!!
