Some Odd Girl Design Team Inspiration: Mini Headless Horseman

Hello!  As September creeps to a close my thoughts are happily preoccupied with all things Halloween!  I have lots of fun planned in October and I can't wait!  In the meantime, I have to be content with Halloween crafting!

Today I am sharing my Some Odd Girl design team inspiration!  Kristy has been furiously drawing all these awesome Halloween minis all month!  I've lost count, but I think we're up to 12 now...  There is every spooky Halloween creature you could want!  From a witch to a vampire to a werewolf to zombies to...  The Headless Horseman!  He is one of my favorite Halloween characters so you know I had to color him up and get him on a card!

Make It Crafty Design Team Inspiration: Make A Scene

Hi!  I don't know what got into me but I was feeling adventurous and brave and I tried my hand at coloring an entire scene for this week's Make It Crafty project.  First, I combined two digis - Eerie Scene and Witchy Zelda Waving.  Then I cut out the scene as an "out of the box" square, with the witch's hat and broom peeking out over the edges.  Next I colored!  And colored!  And colored!  I was pretty pleased with my efforts and I like the results enough to want to try it again!  Crazy, right?!  You know who helped encourage me to step out of my comfort zone?  To digitally combine digis to make scenes?  To color a background?  Our very own Zoe!  Everyone needs a Zoe in their life!  I am so very grateful for her pushing me to grow as a crafter!  Want to see the results?





If you haven't already, be sure to check out Zoe's newest venture, The Coloring Lab!  She is offering awesome online coloring classes!

Some Odd Girl Design Team Inspiration: Teacher's Pet Tia

Hi!  It's my turn to share some crafty inspiration over on the Some Odd Girl blog today.  Every month we host a challenge over in our Facebook community group.  To spice things up, there is an optional theme that you can follow.  This month the theme is Back To School!  (My poor kid has been back in school since August!  Haha!)  But this is one of those themes that is handy to create for all year round!  I now have a teacher's card should I need it for a birthday or those thank you and appreciation days that pop up!

I colored up Teacher's Pet Tia for the occasion!  She is colored with Copics and die cut.  I used a bunch of fun dies on this card!  Check out the product list below for all the details!  We hope that you'll join us over on Facebook and add a SOG project to the challenge folder!  Remember, the theme is optional so don't let that hold you back!

Club La-La Land Crafts September 2018 Showcase

Hi! It has been quite the week for me!  I have made 17 cards in 8 days!  SEVENTEEN!  I think that has got to be a new all time personal record!  In case you're new to my blog, I'm also a working single mom so I'm kind of running on coffee fumes and sheer will power at this point!  Lol I need to catch up on some sleep, but first I have two more projects to share with you featuring the incredibly sweet September 2018 Club Kit.  Before I share, though, let me explain about the club...

Club La-La Land Crafts is a monthly subscription of EXCLUSIVE stamps and/or dies from La-La Land Crafts!
Currently there are three Subscription Plans:
$39.99* USD Product Kit (Stamps AND Dies)
$29.99* USD Dies Only Kit
$19.99* USD Stamps Only Kit
*plus shipping 

Choose the option that is right for you based on product/price then you will be automatically billed via PayPal every month on the 15th and your kit option shipped to you by the end of the month!  Click HERE for all the details and to sign up!  If you join now, your subscription will start with the October 2018 Club Kit, but one of the perks to being a member is access to past kits!  After your second month in the Club you can shop available past kits!  Just another great reason to join!

I also want to mention that I am a LLLC affiliate and if you click my unique link at the top of my blog it will take you to the shop where I can earn a small commission from your purchase.

Now for my projects using the September 2018 Club La-La Land Crafts Kit!

My first project features From my Kitchen Marci.  I have cropped her using a die cut.  Don't be afraid to get creative with your images!  You don't alway have to color and use the whole thing!  I kept the rest of the card simple - white on white with a stenciled background and a few dies.

Up next is one of the adorable bears from the Beary Special set.  I opted for a bright pink color scheme, including my bear!  He sort of reminds me of one of those Care Bears from the 80s.  His sandwich looks like it must be strawberry jam.  Mmmm, yummy!

Some Odd Girl Design Team Inspiration: Mini Vampire in his Creepy Coffin

Hey there!  I'm back, this time with a little Some Odd Girl inspiration!  Kristy has been on a kick drawing these adorably creepy Halloween minis!  If you haven't checked them out in the shop, you should!  I LOVE Halloween! (I'm already decorated for it here!)  It's my favorite holiday and we do it BIG so I've been happy to be crafting for it!

Today I'm using Mini Vampire for a fun project that also features a FREE template from the Some Odd Girl shop.  This little coffin shaped treat box was made with the Creepy Coffin Template found HERE.  It was super easy to cut out, fold, and assemble!  I used a background stamp for a bit of texture on the cover then added some die cuts to decorate it.
