Spotlight

Hey you lovely Oddies! Its the last day of February and I’m leaping at the chance to share with you some of the projects that jumped out at me this month from our Community on Facebook.  Enough Leap Year puns, let’s get this party started…

Our first creation is by LaLa Craft…

I know you’ll want to see more of this awesome notebook she created for her friend to match her adorable pets, so head over to her album of photos and she how else she brought these critters to life. 

 

Next up is a sweet Valentine’s Gift set, you know we couldn’t get out of February without some Vday love…

I can’t help but adore this soft yet bright set that is just too stinkin CUTE. I hope Diana, who is the recipient on the envelope, loved it as much as I do! Well Done Kat!

 

Lastly we have a floral masterpiece…

This card pulls off the bright and fun florals that I never can so I am 50 shades of impressed! The splashes of black really make the colors pop on the card while also giving your eyes a place to rest. Rachel topped it off with a sweet coloring job that matches perfectly.

 

I hope you love these as much as I do! Take this extra day in your year and do some fun stuff, chat for a bit in our community, check out the new goodies in the shop then put on a movie or music and get to craftin. Don’t you dare spend these extra 24 hours doing chores, that’d be just plain naughty.

 

Hey Oddies! Kristy with you sharing some inspirational finds from you lovely peeps in our Community. There’s been a ton since 2016 kicked off but today I’m going to share 3 that caught my eye this month.

Our first one comes from a super speedy lady that had to make it right. now. Which is still way faster than my warp speed, just sayin.

Isn’t it super cute? Rachel bought, colored, created, photographed and posted this card all in the same day, heck, only a handful of hours after release. I bow to your skills Rachel!

 

Sometimes… ok, a lot of times… when I draw up these images, sentiments are the last thing on my mind. Often I can’t come up with a good one quickly.

Lisa totally gave me a forehead slappin moment with her perfectly crafted sentiment! I love how her background invokes the outdoors without taking away from her gorgeous coloring of Jump Rope Tia too.

 

Last up for this month is from someone who you can obviously tell put a lot of work and love into her creation…

My goodness Jessie! I remember coloring the family portrait for the shop and thinking it took a while but then YOU went above and beyond and added a background… virtual high fives!

 

You ladies totally rocked my fuzzy socks off! We’d love to see even more awesome from all of you in February so come over to our Community, join in the challenges, see everyone’s creativity and share yours too.

Hey Oddies! Kristy with you on our last blog post of the year! Its only a week until chrimbo and these last 2 weeks of the year we’ll all be spending with our families just like you. Now before we head off for some hot cocoa with marshmallows (marshmallows are a MUST!) I want to Spotlight some of the fabulous creations I’ve seen from you guys this December. Its a short month but not short on awesome!

 

For our first Spotlight we are heading over to Instagram with a Christmas card from Sharla…

 

Happy holidays!! #someoddgirl

I am not the best christmas cardmaker so when I see one with such awesome coloring and a fun design I’m pretty swoon-y over it. Awesome job Sharla!

 

For our next creation we’re sticking with the holidays with a tag from Sara…

I’m pretty in love with this, especially the doodled star background and would be thrilled to get it on a present if it were me, wouldn’t you be? Rock on Sara!

 

Last up is a card that breaks us from our holiday theme by Silvia…

As someone who can work on one card for a couple hours (I’m slooooooow) This 30 minute card kills me with just how awesome and how much the design and coloring make it look like she spent my kind of time on it. You are a pretty badass crafter Silvia!

 

I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday season and Crafty Claus brings you some goodies to bright up your down time… or escape time, your call. Make sure to stop by our community for our Anything Goes Challenge running thru the end of the year and if you haven’t join the HolODDday Hop going on thru the end of the week. Goodies from us makes Crafty Claus’ job a smidge easier.

See you here in the new year! (it rhymes!)
