Product Spotlight on Simple Stories Daily Grind Collection

Hi everyone! Lisa here today to feature some layouts made with Simple Stories fabulous Daily Grind collection. I'll be sharing pages from my fellow Paper Issues design team member, Kathy and my friend, Christine Meyer as well as some pages I made for the Simple Stories design team. It's always nice to see a collection in action, and used in different ways, don't you think?

#1: By Lisa.

This page uses the Hello, New Day paper as the background. Punched circles from the Daily Flair paper are mixed in with round stickers from the Fundamental Cardstock Sticker sheet. The striped paper is the 'B' side of the Daily Flair paper. The Bingo Cards paper provided a base for layering chipboard stickers and other embellishments in the bottom right corner. I created a pocket using one of the journaling cards from the 3x4 Journaling Card Elements paper but the Sn@p Pockets would work equally as well.

#2: By Christine.
Christine used the same background paper as I did in example #1 but achieved a completely different look. I love how she used the Sn@p Cuts as mats for her photos, backing the diecut shapes with patterned papers. The adorable mini alphas come from the Expressions Cardstock Sticker sheet.

#3: By Lisa.

This next page uses the Day In, Day Out paper (for the background), Busy Busy (text), and the 'B' sides of the Bingo Cards and Daily Flair papers mentioned above.

#4: By Kathy.

Kathy's sweet page about her kitty, uses a number of the same papers as I did in example #3. She achieved a completely different look by cutting down the Day In, Day Out paper and adding in some wonderful machine and hand stitching.

#5: By Christine.
I love Christine's clever use of the Everyday Hustle paper! What a great way to show how your child has changed over the course of a year. This format could be adapted for some many different topics, don't you think?

This collection is full of wonderful color and is perfect for documenting daily activities, schedules, routines, and so much more. I hope you were inspired to add the Daily Grind collection to your stash (and I hope you actually use it too, LOL!)
