SOME ODD GIRL and ARC CRAFTS!

Tuesday means new DIGIs released at SOME ODD GIRL and this week it is our COLLABORATION week with ARC CRAFTS.  You "WOOD" not believe how FAB ARC's products are.  I mean hurry and get your shopping cart filled - you are going to fall in love with their real wood adhesive backed papers and tape.

New DIGI - Hula Mae!  Don't you just love her and her coconut bra!  

Let's talk a bit about ARC's BARC wood papers.  First off I gotta say that I cut it with my Silhouette machine, ran it through the printer to print a DIGI on, (you will see that in a project later in the week) and stamped on it. You would think you were working with card stock.  It is easy peasy to work with.  In my Luau card I used it for 2 of the large backgrounds pieces, plus the letters and the tiki torches.  Notice those tiny holes in the torches - they cut like a piece of cake!  You will find a large variety of different wood grainsand you can color on it with alcohol ink as well to create a custom look.  Go check it out on ARC's site.


 Another new release, Some Odd Girl Jelly Fish!  


Some Odd Girl Hula Mae again!

Some odd girl will feature marvelous projects all week combining ARC and SOG stamps.  Be sure to pop in daily to see what is going on AND leave comments on both blogs and tell us what you think.  One lucky person will win $20 to spend at the Some Odd Girl store, and two others will win FAB ARC Crafts prize packs!!!

Hipster Pets!

Most people know my great love of animals and the Hipster Pets set from SOME ODD GIRL is just so much fun.  Here is my first card from the set.  I based the dog's colors from my niece's Chihuahua who is kind of a dark brindle color.  Woof Woof!

TUESDAY!!!

New DIGIs day at Some Odd Girl!!  
This week there are two new ones, Moving Kaylee and Party Pig!


Ah, the perfect image to use when your friends are moving to a new place.  Let them know you are thinking about them while packing and unpacking. But, remember don't deliver it in person unless you are ready to stuff boxes into a car, or lug boxes up the stairs!  Kaylee is so cute, who could resist not smiling at her.


Party like a Pig!!!  In most cases if it involves cake that saying is a perfect fit with me.  I love cake, especially white cake...not sure why when I love chocolate everything else.  He is a real little porker with his party hat and curly tail.  He wants to be at the party so remember to bring him!



Lots to do with Some Odd Girl.  Join the July Linky Party on the blog, join in with the chat and sharing on Facebook in the SOG Community, subscribe to the newsletter, shoptweet, pin it..... join us!

Baby Girl Shower Banner

I had so much fun creating this little girl banner for a baby shower I am hosting for my niece on Saturday.  I decided that after all the work put into it I should share it on my blog.


Each dress is hung on a little hanger and can be removed from it.  The dress flips open to reveal the coordinating bloomers underneath and you could add a picture or note inside as well. The dress pattern is from a Silhouette file.










I will be hosting another baby shower for another niece this fall who is having a boy.  I better get to thinking about banner ideas!
