We’d like to welcome you to Some Odd Girl‘s 3rd annual
Trick or Treat Halloween Hop

Hop-Graphic-2015

Thank you so much for joining us!  This year we’re throwing a crafty costume party and all of the Odd Girls are sharing Halloween costume-themed creations!  The blog list is below, but you might want to keep this page open in case you get lost, because you’ll definitely want to hit all the houses… I mean blogs! 

How will the trick or treating work? As you stop at each blog along the way to oooh and ahh at the fun Halloween costume-themed crafts, our Design Team will either have a treat for you or a trick (don’t be scared, it’s a crafty tip, and has nothing to do with house egging!).

I’m not telling you which Odd Girls have treats though and you can’t make me! In order to qualify for a treat, you have to leave a comment on every blog along the hop. One person from each treat blog comment section will be awarded a code for $10 of Digis in the Some Odd Girl shop

But we couldn’t let everyone else go without a little treat, so everyone can use code TRICKORTREAT to get 20% off your entire purchase through the weekend!

Don’t forget to leave a comment at every stop to qualify for a treat, and most importantly, have fun! 
 
Are we ready? Here is your Hop order:
 
 
 
And there you have it!  We hop now through October 31st at midnight Eastern, and our winners will be announced next week in the newsletter, so if you haven’t signed up for it yet, click here.  Happy Haunting – I mean HOPPING! 
 

Your first stop is Kristy!!

 

Have fun and a very Happy Halloween from all of us at Some Odd Girl!

Hey Odd-lovers!!

It’s Ellen here with a tutorial. I’d like to show you how to make a trifold card. These cards are so fun to surprise a person with a secret message inside the card.

It looks complicated, but it really isn’t so hard.  Are you curious enough to see what Teacup Alice is doing behind Mad Hatter Kody and the tree (from the Build a Snowman clear stamp set)?  Or just want to make a trifold card?  You’ll see how it’s all done in this video…

We’d love to hear from you!  Let us know what you’d like to see in a next video and maybe we can try to make your idea happen!  We’re always looking for new things to play with, and we love your feedback!

Share your thoughts in our Facebook Community, or in your comments below, and stay tuned!

Hey Odd lovers, Melissa here today to discuss “bonus stamps”!

When you purchase a stamp set, you normally purchase it because the big featured stamp is what you want, not the bonus stamps.  Oh…just so you know I like to call the accent stamps “bonus stamps”.  Anyway, if you check out your stamp sets you may discover that you can create quick little cards with just your bonus stamps.  This normally means no heavy duty coloring and the end product is quick, cute, and personal.

Totally simple, LOTS OF FUN, and tons and tons of possibilities!

I hope my little examples inspire you to get out your stamp sets and give this a try.  These make perfect cards to tuck in briefcases, lunch boxes, or bagged gifts.  It’s nice letting someone know you are thinking of them.

Hey, they might be great little stamps to use for treat bags for Halloween, too!  Remember we’ve got lots of exciting things going on in the Some Odd Girl Facebook Community, so hop on over and show us whatcha got!  There are challenges!  Prizes!  Silliness!  INSPIRATION!
