Welcome to our next challenge! You can see the winners of our SOG Only Think Spring Challenge here 🙂

Today’s challenge is purty simple we want to see you PLEAT something! Pleat some ribbon or some paper or tape or fabric, as long as something has pleats in your creation/project/card you are good to go! If you use a Some Odd Girl Stamp AND Pleat something you will get 2, yes 2, entries into the pool. You only need to link it up once, I’ll count two 😉 Here is what our Odd Girls did:

Leah used Bee Tia

Robin used Garden Mae

Carlie used Yay Kaylee (retired)

Zarah used Bee Tia

There you have it! What can you think of to pleat? You will be playing for 2 images from our shop! This challenge will run thru April 5th, end of day. When the linky closes, its all over 🙂 Creations must be new (no backdating) and linked to our blog so others can play too. That’s it! Let’s see what you can do!

Thanks to everyone who played with our Some Odd Girl Only (means you must use a Some Odd Girl stamp to be eligible) Challenge of Think Spring! Your entries totally made me think of warmer days with the birds singing and the flowers starting to bloom! No frost to be seen! We’ve drawn the winner of the 4 SOG digis and the winner is…

I love Jeanette’s style! Bright but with a vintage flair! Jeanette email me Kristy@someoddgirl.com to get your coupon code to go on a mini shopping spree! Our two favs were harder to pick, random.org certainly saves me the hardest job of picking a winner though lol! All the entries had something about them that I LOVED! But the two I picked were so purty each with different things I loved. First was Lisa who joined us with her FIRST SOG entry ever! Who doesn’t like that?
Lisa put together a great color combo that flowed and just looks so cute! Her coloring was soft and worked well with her different elements. Thanks for joining us Lisa! Our second fav comes from the talented Ingrid who brought a soft vintage flair to her creation.
Vintage is something I personally CAN NOT pull off so when its done so seamlessly with fun pops of color and the beads around the edge I’m totally in love! Both Ingrid and Lisa, please email me Kristy@someoddgirl.com with your user name so I can add your 4 SOG Points for being Favs and get you your Fav’s blinkie 🙂
Thanks so much for playing along and tomorrow will bring our next open challenge that I’m sure you’ll love! Remember, using a SOG stamp on your entry will get you two names in the hat so its worth it to play along 🙂 
Last off, if you haven’t stopped by our Facebook page then you have totally missed the pictures of the new stamps that finally made it to my door! Clear Photopolymer in 6 designs each with their own sentiment. We are getting pics and everything ready to go live on the site but take a peek, its exciting times at Some Odd Girl!

Today our March Guest Odd Girl has a special tutorial to share that totally crosses over! I’m going to let her take it over from here…

how to make embroidery patterns out of digi stamps
you will need:
pen (reg or disappearing/water pen)
fabric (what you will be putting your picture on)

pull up your picture on your computer screen and make it the size you would like your project to be then just tape your fabric to your monitor

take your pen and trace your design

now the fun part!  color in your image with your thread!  you can do back stitches or stain stitches or a combo of both like i did

now whatever will i use this cute lil bird for?  he’s so sweet and adorable and i’m sure will bring me nothing but dreams of the same! 

to see the rest of the tutorial head over to the bloggie where i’ll show you how easy quilting can be!!!
