Hello Sunshine with Pals Paper Arts #237

Hello Sunshine

There are two very good reasons why I love the Occasions Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper. First reason is because I love the name of the paper. Why do I love it? February 2015 will mark my retirement from the United States Air Force after a quarter of a century of service…WoW! I’m still in awe. But, before I tell you the second reason why this DSP is my favorite let me tell you about this weeks Pals Paper Arts Challenge #237.


When I first saw this sketch I had a hard time trying to imagine what I would do with the two strips on the right. They had me stumped to say the least! Then it came to me like two dark clouds parting in the sky allowing the sun’s rays into my craft room…[light bulb came on] the Crazy About You stamp set was perfect!

Hello Sunshine

MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting suggestions.

  • The perfect clear adhesive for adhering sequence is Crystal Effects clear gel. It goes on clear and dries clear. You only need to use a tiny pin drop.
  • Although I believe that less is more…the Coastal Cabana card stock needed just a bit of dimension against the printed DSP. Smooth card stock kind of made the tulips drown because the color seemed to overpower the print.
