Kristy here today with a new program at Some Odd Girl that I hope you’ll be excited about!

Do you love Some Odd Girl?
Are you an enthusiastic creator?
Are you active in the crafty world?

Then WE WANT YOU!

We want to reward our loyal and active Odd Family members for showing us their love and doing what they already do to spread the Odd Word; people who share their creations using our products through various outlets like galleries and social media.

What’s the reward?  We want to get more of our goods into your hands so you can keep up the good work.  That’s it.  Really easy, right?  If you fill out the application form on our website, you’ll be applying to be one of our Oddvocates.  We will keep everyone on file and we’ll accept more to the team as the program grows, so don’t worry if you don’t hear back right away.

Every 3-4 months, we will send our Oddvocates some surprise goodies to have fun with; digital goodies (digi stamps, cut files or new ebooks), or physical goodies like Clear Stamps, paper, embellishments, etc.  They will also have a special Facebook Group to talk to other Oddvocates and get early news on upcoming releases.  There might be other surprises in store as well.

All we ask from our Oddvocates is that they continue to spread the word, just as they have been.

If this sounds fun to you please fill out the form!  This program is overseen by Leah l’Orange and she will contact anyone who is accepted.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

Hi Everyone!

I’m Elle, one of the Guest Odd Girls this term, and I have a big confession to make. I am a … paper-a-holic. Yes, it’s true. I have veritable towers of patterned paper in my craft room, and I just can’t stop myself from buying shiny new paper pads whenever they come out. Still, I find patterned paper to be one of the most inspiring supplies, and I just love having the perfect background for every image I print or stamp out and color.

The card I’m sharing today features Scooter Mae digi, a super sweet stamp that’s fitting for the summer season. As with all Some Odd Girl digis, once you purchase the stamp, you will receive a large and crisp image that you can resize and print out. If you’re brand new to digital stamps, check out this free guide Kristy has added to the shop. I added the stamp to a Word document and resize it to fit a standard A2 card.

Summer-ElleL

I colored Scooter Mae with my Copics and carefully fussy-cut her with some sharp scissors. Then I jumped into playing with paper!

I chose an older summer-themed paper pad that had the same general tones as my colored image. None of the colors are a perfect match, but this works out well because it makes Mae stand out a little bit better. If I had chosen the very same colors as Mae, the whole card may have looked too busy. Once my papers were chosen, I used my Bigshot to die-cut some fun shapes and add even more interest to the card.

Whenever I finish a card, I always snap a picture, type a quick blurb in my blog and share it in the Some Odd Girl Facebook community. It is the best place to get some great feedback, positivity and encouragement. If you’re not a member yet, hop, skip and run to join us! We would love to have you.

I hope you enjoyed my card! Let me know how you really feel about patterned paper. Is it a staple in your craft room, or something you’d rather do without?

Happy Friday! Kristy with you for a big, happy, fun announcement! Do you guys remember when we talked about our new Design Team and that we would be watching all our channels, Facebook, our Community, Instagram, Pinterest, etc, for people who made themselves known and showed talent, enthusiasm and that Odd something? Well I’m excited to introduce our first Guest Designers for their 4 month stint of June – September!

If you’re a regular at any of our places then I know you’ve seen and recognize these ladies, yes we went with 2 this time. They’ve been just a treat behind the scenes getting ready too. I’d like to introduce to you…

I think we made some fabulous finds for our first 4 month Guest Designers! They are working right alongside the Odd Girls and will be with us thru September, I’m pretty stoked to see everything they come up with!

If you want to be our next Guest Designer, starting in October, you just need to be you and show us your Odd love by participating in our Community, showing projects and however else you get down. We are watching! But not creepy watching 😉

You’ll see our Guests join us in their first post on Monday with our next Digi Stamp release, don’t miss it! I’ve seen the cards and they’re fabulous.
