I learned about scrapbooking from a friend at church. It was the beginning. I made scrapbooks for different people when they moved away, including for the friend who taught me about scrapbooking. I started making cards around 2006. Digis came into my life when I finally figured out how to set up a blog in 2011. I never knew that I would spend so much time with it and enjoy it so much. I started with the Robyn’s Fetish Design Team in January 2012. I have learned a lot while on this team and have enjoyed every creation I have had the honor to make. I started doing the RF tutorials in February 2013. It is a lot of work, but very interesting and inspiring.
I am 52 years old. I have 3 brothers, 3 nieces and 3 great nephews. I live with my parents and our cat, Goldie, who was a stray, hurt and cold when we brought her in and took good care of her. Cold, you ask? Yes! It was ZERO degrees outside! What a lucky cat she is now!
My name is Julie Odil, and I am a paper addict. I love to collect all those pretty papers. Just recently, I have discovered the joy of digital papers. Imagine! Love a beautiful pattern? Just print more! I also have a bit of a collection of stamps (rubber, digital, clear), embellishments, ribbons, dies, markers, die cutting machines. Yeah, you get the idea. I love to create — cards, 3D projects, home decor, I never know what direction I am heading in next. Christmas cards, though? I always need those. So, I am very excited to be a part of this team. Maybe this year, I’ll be ready for Christmas? Nah!
I try to make things that are different, have some unexpected aspect, and tend to lean toward strong women and strong colors. But not always! I may surprise everyone occasionally with random cuteness.
Let's inspire each other.
I have been card-making off and on for a number of years since a friend introduced me to rubber stamps although I now work mostly with digi stamps. My style is mainly CAS but I'm trying to learn new techniques. I first started blogging my cards in February 2012 so that I could enter some challenges. I initially started with mainly Christmas challenges to take the pressure off at the end of the year but have since found several others that have appealed to me. Since I live on the other side of the world, so many of the challenges are the opposite season to ours which certainly makes things interesting!
Well, you've officially met the entire design team. Soon we'll be introducing all of our generous sponsors! Don't forget that we have candy up for grabs until the end of the month. You can find everything you need to know by clicking HERE and heading to that post. We also have a couple other things planned for this month that we'll be letting you know of shortly.
Take care everyone. We'll be seeing you again real soon!
