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 or our new Insta-Squares 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 card is one of the 3x3 cards from our Travel SN@P! Set Insta Squares & Pieces. I love the image of the cool camera and the fact that the card is square. It made it really easy to create this grid style layout -
Next up is Lisa Swift with this 4x6 card from the Summer SN@P! Set -
When I asked Lisa why she chose this particular card, she said -
With the long, brutal winter we've had I am sooooo ready for summer (or at least sun and warmer temperatures). I love the mix of happy colors on this card and I'm always drawn to anything that has subway art on it. This was definitely the top choice for me!
Marie Lottermoser chose this 4x6 card from our Him SN@P! Set -
When I asked Marie why she chose this card, she said -
This card is such a great reminder to take note of your kid's current likes and dislikes. The prompts really help capture the personality of your child. I think it will be something that will be so much fun to look back on years from now and see what's changed and what's stayed the same.
Melissa Stinson chose not one card, but an entire PACKAGE of cards - the DIY Office Card Foundations!
When I pointed out to Melissa that she selected an entire package of cards, she said -
I know it's cheating, but my pick for a favorite card this round is the entire set of Office Card Foundations from the DIY (Design It Yourself) collection. FINALLY I have a source for neutral cards with square corners! These cards have been used in so many of my Pocket Page Layouts since they arrived because they coordinate so well with all of the new collections. Each pack contains a mix of text and ledger prints in both white and off-white, and any time I need a neutral base to start building a portion of a Pocket Page, I reach for one of these cards.
Next up is Nancy Damiano with this 4x6 card from the Birthday SN@P! Set -
According to Nancy -
I love the combination of clean design + bright punch of color on this card. The layering of the balloons is a nice detail as is the 'party on' ribbon. What I like the most is that because it doesn't say 'birthday', I can use it for any celebration!
Last up this month is Nichol Magouirk with this 4x6 card from the Everyday SN@P! Set -
According to Nichol -
I think this card is a fabulous daily reminder of finding those little joys and happiness in our life. I love this one so much I framed it for my home. :)
So, what do you think? How about those picks - pretty fun, right?!
