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.

Happy Retirement Major Gill

Retirement

Ever find yourself wanting to do more with your Stampin’ Up! stamps and ink? Well you can do so much more than you’ve ever imagined with My Digital Studio, but first let me tell you about my co-worker & friend Dave.

Dave is a fellow hospital administrator (like me) and he joined the Air Force December 1989 just five months shy after me.

Today we celebrate his retirement and I wanted him to have a card that is extremely personal. It doesn’t get any more personal than having your name printed on the front with the logo that represents 25 years of service to our country.

Dave knows I have a blog, but he doesn’t check it, so you know what’s the next best thing since sliced bread? For YOU to leave him a comment and thank him for his 25 years of honorable and dedicated service to our great country.

Now, on to how I made the card.

Retirement

I used My Digital Studio to print the words and then used my Cameo to cut out the Air Force Logo, which I downloaded from the internet. It made it easier to cut out the blue outline that overlapped the silver. I then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the AF logo a 3-D finish.

MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting recommendations:

  • When Stampin’ Up! doesn’t have an ink, paper, or anything that can personalize a special card, break out with My Digital Studio. You can try it FREE for 30 days and play with it. It really is FREE to try.
  • Or you can submit an order to me for that special card. Simply send me an email (maggie@maggiemadecards.com) with your name and phone number and we’ll connect to go over the details. It’ll be cheaper than Hallmark and much more personal.

    • This offer has been so popular and I thank all of you who have submitted orders that I’ve decided to offer it through the end of Sale-a-bration… March 31st.

Pals Blog Hop: Hello Occasions

Welcome to the first Pals Blog Hop of 2015. We hope your new year is off to a great creative start. To celebrate the start of a new Stampin’ Up! year, we are showcasing products from our newest catalog this month – the Occasions catalog. You may also see new Sale-a-bration products too. If you don’t know how to earn free Sale-a-bration products – contact your Stampin’ Up! demonstrator to learn more.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Amy Whelan at Amy’s Inklings. Use the full lineup below to move along from blog to blog so you see all of the new projects.

Valentine's Love

The Occasions/Sale-a-bration Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack is by far, hands down the number one DSP to use for ALL your Valentine’s Day project needs! It’s the only one I’ve used and I’ve already ordered two more packs.

I measured four times and cut once (in small segments) to create the spaced out look. For the letters I used my ever “other” so favorite Little Letters Thinlits Dies. This is one of those sets that I know I’ll keep forever and ever…even after retirement (not my retirement, but the letters. LOL)

The next stop is Becky Gifford at The Social Stamper on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you next month.
