Product Spotlight *Simple Stories - Summer Vibes*

There have been so many great summer collections released this season.  
The Simple Stories Summer Vibes Collection is the perfect blend of vintage and summer fun. 
A few of the Paper Issues Design Team are joining me today, in showing it off.

Lisa and Corri, our own personal card geniuses created these gorgeous pieces of art using the 6x6 paper pad, and coordinating embellishments from the collection.
Corri went for colour and simplicity, adding in a few enamel dots for flair.

Lisa added several elements from the sticker sheet to embellish her card.
I like that both ladies created cards that could be used for just about any function or celebration.  

Did you know that Simple Stories brads are "backless"?  That's right, they go on more like stickers and enamel dots than traditional brands, as there is no hardware to mess with, easy peasy.

Orange used a recent Scraplift Sunday project to create this cool layout.
The design is a great way to combine different patterned papers, and using the photo frames is a fabulous way to make sure the focus remains on the photos.

My layout was a 20 minute easy peasy project.
Once I chose the 12x12 fundamentals stickers to use as my main source of embellishments everything came together pretty quickly.

Jennifer used several 2x2 cards layered and popped off the page to enhance the same background page, making it look totally different at first glance.

Becky kept her design central, showcasing the beauty of the Shine On patterned paper.
I just love the way everything is angled just slightly, and the way those gold glitter letters look over the chipboard frame.

Our resident PL pro used the 2x3 journal cards to complete this week of her album.
I especially love the way she used the pie chart card here on the bottom left.  And how adorable is her baby girl in that top right photo?

And to round out our spotlight  I have a layout Devra created.
I just love the way she combined my 2 favourite patterned papers in the collection into one background.

I love the way one collection, or in this case even just one patterned paper can look so completely different depending on the designer working with it.
