Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L HOP!

Thanks for joining our week-long HOP!  Stamps and sticky stuff  join hands for a fun and inspiring event that runs November 25th through December 1st, and we’ve got 5 days’ worth of stunning creations to share with you while you hop!

Some Odd Girl and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L will be sharing projects on their blogs Monday through Friday, and if you follow along and comment on each of the posts along the way (that’s 10 comments you’ll need to make, folks!), you’ll be entered to win some serious swag from both companies!  There are two happy boxes of adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and two $20 gift certificates to the Some Odd Girl shop to be won!

Here are the main blog links:

I love Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L's foam squares!  They are perfect for fitting right in the corner of scrapbook pages...and give just the right amount of pop on my cards.  The E-Z Runner is exactly what I need for my flat projects.  It's so easy to use and this roll seems to last forever!
 Here you can see how the red mushy is nice and flat (using the E-Z Runner) and the green one is popped up perfectly (using the foam square).
I used my Some Odd Girl digi stamp Mushes Set and the sentiment is from On Safari clear set.

Be sure to make your way around to both blogs each day this week and you have until Sunday, December 1st at midnight EST to squeeze in all your commenting – we’ll be announcing the two lucky winners on Monday, December 2nd!   Happy hoppin’!

While you've got your awesome Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L out, don't forget to make a project for the Speech Bubbles Challenge going on at Some Odd Girl too!

Thanksgiving Place Cards

Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  Do you decorate?  If you do, have you thought about your table decorations yet?
Here are a couple of ideas for cute place cards....
These little pumpkins are made with the new Pumpkin Card Base cut file from Some Odd Girl.  They are made on the Silhouette.  I made them pretty small, about 2 1/2-3 inches high. 

 These little pilgrim hats are made with small terrocotta pots.  They are painted with chalk board paint, so you can change them if they guest list is different from year to year.  Then you add a little ribbon and felt for the hat band.

Both ideas are super fun to make, easy, and won't cost a lot.

Perfectly Odd Hop!

WELCOME to A Perfectly Odd Hop
 You should have arrived here from Pam Sparks' blog. 

Some Odd Girl had the pleasure of getting together with Perfect Paper Crafting at CHA in Vegas, and a collaborative event was an absolute NO-BRAINER.! Would the Odd Girls like to try out some fun tools?  Heck yes!  Does the Perfect Paper Crafting team want to play with some cute stamps?  Sure thing!

  So here we are! The Odd Girls have partnered up with the lovely ladies from Perfect Paper Crafting to bring you this fabulously inspiring BLOG HOP! The hop will run through Sunday, November 17th.  

If you’re not already familiar with Perfect Paper Crafting, you are in for a TREAT that is fun and different!  Their tools allow crafters to get perfect placement of their mats and edges, easily shape and layer, and AIRBRUSH for gorgeous effects on their projects!  The Odd Girls enjoyed playing with their Perfect LayersPerfect Squares, and Perfect Ruler for this little event.  

I got to play with the Perfect Layers tool and it is the tool for me - because (confession time!) I don't measure stuff. So when I layer, things can look a bit wonky....even with my paper trimmer. Perfect Layers truly makes a perfect layer - every time - with not measuring.  AND it is super easy to use. Click HERE to watch how it works!

(Using SOG Little Loves clear set)

Your next stop will be Wendy Ramlakhan's blog,  but in case you get lost or distracted along the way, here’s the hop order: 

Be sure to comment at every stop and you’ll be eligible to win one of TWO prize packs that include one of these tools and a stamp set of your choice! 

There will be inspiration throughout the week on the Some Odd Girl Blog. You can see how the Odd Girls have used the Perfect Paper Crafting tools, and maybe a little guest project here and there from our partners in this hop!  You have until Sunday at midnight EST to leave your comments, and Some Odd Girl and Perfect Paper Crafting will each draw one winner, to be announced on Monday, November 18th.  Have a Perfectly Odd day, and good luck!

Speech Bubble challenge!

Wow!! Can you believe November is here already?  Crazy, huh! 

Since it's a new month, we have a new challenge for you over at the Some Odd Girl blog.  We are challenging you to use SPEECH BUBBLES!  You can use stickers, wood embellies, pattern paper with speech bubbles, or just draw them yourself.  Check out the details and come link up!

I used the new SOG Speech Bubbles cut file to make some fun lunch box notes for my kiddos.  I've always enjoyed slipping little notes in with their lunch, but now that they are older the "babyish" ones just won't work.  Since speech bubbles are so popular, they are perfect for my middle schoolers.
I made them using the Silhouette.  The first thing I did was use the little silhouette ink pins to draw the speech bubbles instead of cut. Then I offset that shape (which makes a larger image around your original shape). To do that I just right clicked on my image and picked offset from the drop down box.  I deleted the inner image that I just printed, then cut out the offset image.  Don't remove your paper between printing and cutting....AND remember to remove your pin and replace the blade before you cut.

I hope that made sense!  Have a fantastic Friday!!
