Hi there, Layle with you today for another round of Pick a Card, Any Card!
Each month, 5 of our design team members and I will be picking one of our favorite Simple Stories or SN@P! 3x4 or 4x6 cards and sharing them with you - in more ways than one! We've introduced so many GREAT cards over the last few years that I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite cards each month, tell you why they're our favorites and then give you a chance to win not only the specific cards that we picked, but the other cards they're paired up with as part of the set (more on that fun giveaway at the end of this post)!If you missed last month's picks, you can see them here.
To kick off this month's version of Pick a Card, Any Card, here's one of my favorites -
This 4x6 card is from our new Love SN@P! Set that we introduced as part of our CHA Summer release. (Incidentally, we just started shipping all 8 of our new SN@P! Sets to retailers, so keep your eyes peeled at your local scrapbook store and/or favorite online retailer!!!) I love the simplicity of this card! Chalkboard is such a trendy design element in scrapbooking right now, so it certainly has THAT going for it. I love the blank space to the left of the sentiment - perfect for adding a small photo. I have plans to use this card VERY soon :)
I love this pie chart card. It's probably the math teacher in me, but I love thinking of the categories you could place in the chart. This is a 3x4 card that's designed to be used by itself, but I love the idea of using it with the other diagonal 3x4 card attached as well. SN@P! has made the process of documenting so much easier for me! How about you?
So, I'm certainly NOT a math teacher(!) like you Kay, but I too love the pie chart!
I truly love everything about this card from the pretty blue and red color combination, to the inspirational quote by Walt Disney. Add that to the cute cloud graphic in the background, and this card just makes me smile.
AH! This is one of my favorite cards, too! In fact, it was going to be my pick for next month. Looks like I'll be picking another card, eh?!
Boys are the story of my life - I live with three boys, a husband and even a male dog. So this one little card says it all for me! Not to mention that I am a sucker for chevrons and the orange and aqua and blue color combo! I know I at least need this card in triplicate!!
I'm right there with you, Kelly! With two boys, a husband and even two male cats, I'm thinking I see a LOT of the Him SN@P! Set in my future ;)
Yes, I know....I have picked 2 cards, but you just can't have one of these without the other! I love this set because after 28 years of marriage, my husband and I can still say the same words but mean two different things! These will make the perfect page to document that strange phenomenon!
Congrats on 28 years, Kim! I hear you on saying the same thing, and meaning 2 different things - MEN!
We wrap it up this month with Melissa Stinson's favorite 3x4 card, also from the Him SN@P! Set -
This is Melissa's current favorite card because -
I love this card because it describes me perfectly- high energy! I'm always moving, going, and doing as long as I'm awake, and I don't stop until I literally fall into bed.
I'd love to bottle some of your energy, Melissa!
So, what do you think? How about those picks - pretty fun, right?!
