3rd annual Hol-ODD-Day hop at Some Odd Girl!

YAY!
it's TIME!

our Hol-ODD-Day hop kicks off NOW, and i'm so glad you're here! 

We Odd Girls have joined together for a fun event for EVERYONE - not just because you get to hop, but because you get to PARTICIPATE and share your own holiday creations. So glad you've joined us for our 3rd annual Hol-ODD-Day Hop!



We mixed things up a bit to bring you a nice variety of holiday projects that we hope will inspire you. You can comment on all of the blogs, participate by linking your own below (to be eligible to win, be sure you link to us in your post), and comment throughout the event on other people's links as well! And there will be PRESENTS! The hop goes from now through Friday, December 12th, and we'll be announcing 3 winners next Wednesday, December 17th, so you have plenty of time to comment between now and then! Our Hol-ODD-Day Hop link party will close at midnight on Friday the 12th.

Today, all of the Odd Girls have projects to share for the big event, so you can visit their blogs to see all the action happening. Here's the hop list for our awesome team:

Remember to comment along the way, and link up your holiday-themed projects using Some Odd Girl stamps (new or old)!

i created a little wedge box/ornament using the gorgeous Bright Lights Kaylee digi stamp (she'll always be one of my faves!):


the box will be filled with candies (probably Ferrero Rocher) and hung up, either from our mantle or on a tree that has yet to be put up...  these boxes are SO easy to make, and a couple of little punched holes to tie them together, and presto!  instant gift!  (yep, a gift card will also fit inside!)

ZOOM to see this cutie up close:

 
i also used the green arrow paper from the Sunshine Sorbet paper pad, as well as some Sorbet Sequins and Hexie Dots all blinged out.  

so hop along, and comment along the way, and you are welcome to join us by adding ANY Some Odd Girl holiday-themed project (new or old) to our little Hop Party Linky - just be sure to link to Some Odd Girl in your blog post, and you might be one of our lucky winners - there will be THREE!  

we also have some awesome themed digi BUNDLES for you, so CLICK HERE to see what's in the shop!

i combined some of the Teresa Collins "Something Wonderful" elements (including the title from the pack!), some goodies from my December Swag Bag, Jillibean Soup enamel stars, some Fancy Pants ephemera goodness and my trusty Dymo label maker. 



those apples?  yeah, they were MAILED TO ME.  by my bestie, Kristy, who hand-picked them in Michigan when Honeycrisp season started last year.  when i opened this huge box to find apples inside, i cried like a baby.  love you, girl.  like whoa!

Still time to win an SRM Stickers prize pack at Paper Issues!

hi there, chickens!  i'm back with a new scrappy page for the current Link Party at Paper Issues!

our theme (until this Sunday!) is "Witchin' You a Happy Halloween" and it's sponsored by the awesome SRM Stickers...  i used a TON of the stuff i received on the gift packaging i made HERE, but still had loads left over, so i decided to dissect and make it go even further!

this page...  oh, this little miss.  she has this magical effect on me.  my niece...


i used the gorgeous new On My Desk line from Gossamer Blue and added in some Swag Bag details, a couple of Pinkfresh Studio Wood Drop Chevrons plus some little bits and alphas...  but that doily, the scalloped border stickers beside the photo and the "happy" stickers around the edges of my photo?  they're SRM remnants - i just ditched the "Halloween" and they worked perfectly!

zoom! 




another zoom, to show you my sweet Baby G!

there you have it.  oh, you might be wondering how it fits our theme for the Link Party?  wellllllll, there's a whole lotta HAPPY going on in this picture - that's how easy it is to make it work!  you can add new or old projects that are HAPPY in theme, Halloween-based, spooky, costumey, witchy, a page about you, etc.  the sky's the limit!  CLICK HERE to join the party, and SRM has an awesome prize pack up for grabs for one lucky winner!  remember to link back to the Paper Issues blog in your post to be eligible to win.

Trick or Treat with Some Odd Girl!

hey there, chickens!  are you ready for some FUN?!

We’d like to welcome you to Some Odd Girl‘s 2nd annual Trick or Treat Halloween Hop!

Thank you so much for joining us!  All of the Odd Girls have concocted a creepy little creation to inspire you today, and you’re invited to visit each blog to see what’s been brewing!   You might have arrived from Linda’s blog – if so, you’re on the right track!  If not, you’ll want to CLICK HERE to get things started, because you won’t want to miss a thing!

We’ll be sharing some of these pretties at the Some Odd Girl blog over the next few days, but TODAY, we kick things off!  So you might be wondering what this Trick or Treat stuff is all about, yeah?  Well, in addition to amazing papercrafty goodness you’ll see at each stop, you’ll get tricks along the way, too!  Simple tips and tricks to little secrets we papercrafters have figured out that we want to share with you!  

My trick for you today is this... Don't allow yourself to get stuck in a theme with a themey stamp...  Sometimes a little outside-the-box imagining will breathe new life into a stamp set!

And then there are TREATS! 



As you hop, you’ll come across some Treats, located at random Odd Girls‘ blogs.  We have some clear stamps, some Odds & Ends, some digi stamps and lots and lots of inspiration for you!  AND, as if that wasn’t exciting already, we have a discount code for you!

TRICKORTREAT
saves you 25% off your ENTIRE purchase during the hop!

So I have a festive little creation to share today...  BUT would you have thought to use the Yeti clear stamp set for something other than a winter/Christmas project?  Well he is a monstah, so he's kinda perfect for Halloween too, right?  :)  Here's my card, and I've used some of the awesome orange woodgrain paper from our Sunshine Sorbet paper pad and some orange and blue Sorbet Sequins as well:


here's my Yeti dude up close, and you can see all the fun little things in my embellie cluster:


Be sure to leave a comment at each stop, and if YOU have any tricks you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them!  There might just be a prize in it for one commenter who leaves us a trick!  Okay.  So have you got all that?  Here’s your hop order, in case you've randomly arrived:
Leah (you are here!)

And there you have it!  We will hop now through October 31st at midnight Eastern, and our winners will be announced back here on the Some Odd Girl blog on Monday, November 3rd.  Happy Haunting – I mean HOPPING!  :)  Your next stop is Suzanne's blog!  I'm pretty sure she'll have something amazing waiting for you there, so, GO! 

And a very Happy Halloween from all of us at Some Odd Girl!
