Welcome Lizzie! She’ll be joining us for our two challenges and a super secret project I’ll share with you next week 🙂 Crafting worlds collide! But right now we’ve got our 2nd evah Some Odd Girl Only Challenge. What’s that mean? It means for this challenge you must use a Some Odd Girl stamp on your project to play along and be eligible for our prize drawing. If you link up without a SOGgy digi on your project, it will be removed.

SO, I had mentioned on Monday with Zarah and Asa that I was trying to get you in a Spring feeling, I had a good reason! Our challenge is: THINK SPRING! I want to see creations that scream spring in either colors or design. Don’t make me have to think about it, I want to look on your project and simply feel the season. Here’s how our Odd Girls did it…

Asa used Bee Tia

There’s all sorts of things you can do! Our March Spring Release is perfect for this challenge if you need a lil somethin to get you started! This challenge will be run thru March 22nd, when the linky closes the challenge is over 🙂 Creations must be new (no backdating) and linked to our blog so others can play too. Don’t forget, if its not obvious how your creation works into the challenge, don’t be afraid to tell us! 🙂 You are going to be playing for double the normal prize, 4 images of your choice from our shop!!! Get to craftin! We can’t wait to see what makes you feel like Spring!

Let’s get to know another of our Odd Girls a bit better today, this post is all about Robin! Robin has been with Some Odd Girl since we gathered our first DT in February 2010 and I’m so glad she is still with us! We asked her the same questions as Kellie, let’s see what she said…




We want to see your first PHOTOGRAPHED card! We’ve all got that first! Share!


what’s changed the most since they began crafting?

My colouring skills have definitely improved by leaps and bounds.  And I also get more and more comfortable with putting cards together as I go along!
what drew you to Some Odd Girl?
I love the whimsical images – it’s great that they have large and exaggerated features – great for colouring!


Any cardmaking idols?

There are TONS.  But some that stick out are: Mercy Kerin, Beate Johns, Silke Ledlow, and Betty Wright.
crafty goals for 2011?

I want to have a stress-free year, and just craft for the love of it! I would love to continue taking colouring classes and learning new things as well!


Personal craft do’s and don’ts? what can you rawk and what is not so hawt for you?

I think I would recommend not trying to make things too complicated.  I think one of the hardest things is to stop at the right place because I always want to add more. But, I am better to stay with simple.
I think I am pretty good at colouring, but I always need help with my layouts.  That’s when I turn to the web for inspiration…one of the do’s is definitely to surf the net, and you can find almost anything you need!


what current paper trends do you HATE/LOVE?
I actually don’t follow trends much – I have so much paper from over the years, that I am trying to use it all up!  I think that the right image and layout can make any set of papers look good!

Thanks so much for sharing with us Robin! Robin has a flair for making simple designs look so dramatic and gorgeous AND she’s a Copic Certified Designer since March 2009. This girl simply has mad skills! Jump on over to her blog and say hi! He blog has a lot of great info and you will definitely be inspired by her creations!

Join us back here tomorrow for the Handmade Elements winner, get your entries in thru TONIGHT! Thursday we will have a new challenge and Saturday is Digi Day in our SNR Group! So plan on having an Odd Week!
