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 3x4 card is from our brand new Daily Grind collection
(shipping to retailers mid November). The woodgrain background paired
with the colorful days of the month make me giddy! I'm a recent Life
Documented/pocket page scrapper and I can see this card as the perfect addition
to document the 'daily grind' in my life in a future weekly spread.
When I asked Shellye why she chose this card, she said -
The chalkboard look is one of my favorite trends right now and this card hits the spot! I love the font, the chalk shading and the row of hearts. The sentiment is simple, yet one that you don't find just anywhere; it's original. Because I'm mostly a cardmaker, any of the cute cards will do...but I also think that they would be adorable framed and then displayed in a collage. The new SN@P! sets include some of my very favorite Simple Stories graphics to-date...there isn't one that I didn't 'awww' to pieces!
When I asked Teri why she chose this card, she said -
Gosh, I just love checklists! No need to journal with this card. Just pick one of these phrases to describe the day and bam! You are done. The words on this card are so appropriate for so many situations. I love that. Some days are epic. Some are amazing! And others really are "no comment" worthy!
I love this card because it is just a great reminder that we all have those moments that when they happen it can be a little drama but afterwards we often can smile about it! Isn't that what capturing memories is also about?!
I LOVE the 3x4 and 4x6 cards from Simple Stories. So, WOW, was it hard to pick just one favorite. I found several in the SN@P sets HER collection that I loved and have used for their fun colors and FABULOUS sayings. Like, "Believe in Yourself," and "Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful." But I think my favorite right now, is "Just Be You." Such a simple, but important message! And I love the rainbow chevron pattern. The black bold circle for the sentiment really pops and it stands out on a project in a big way. :)
I'm a sucker for anything with a word bubble on it and add in the chalkboard theme and the amazingly awesome fonts on this card and it is hands down my current favorite card! I also love that this card is black & white and will work with any of the other SN@P! Cards that I want to use for Life Documented!
So, what do you think? How about those picks - pretty fun, right?!OK, now to more good stuff. At the beginning of this post I mentioned something about a giveaway! Leave a comment on this post by end of day Friday, November 8th (WHAT! November already?!!) telling me which of our 6 cards is your favorite and why. On Sunday the 10th I'll draw one random lucky winner to win ALL of these cards -
WOW! That's a lot of card goodness if I do say so myself. Good luck!
