Product Spotlight: Simple Stories Life in Color & Carpe Diem

Hey everyone, we have an amazing spotlight for you today.  Because Simple Stories is so amazing and we couldn't decide on which collection to use, we decided to spotlight both Life in Color and Carpe Diem!!!

For my first LO I used the Life in Color collection.  This collection is so bold with the red and teal!  I love this photo of my daughter.  It's just a quick phone photo I snapped last summer when we were out for lunch.  She looks so grown up!  I also used a free cut file from Paper Issues on this LO!

My Carpe Diem LO came together quickly.  I knew I wanted to use those adorable frames on my LO.  After that I just needed to add a few embellishments and it was done.  This is an older photo of my daughter.  She was about 8 years old here.  I miss the days of taking her to the park to play!

Let's see what the team created....

Danielle used Life in Color collection.  She used this fabulous XO paper as her background.  I love how it makes everything pop!

Jen made this beauty with the Carpe Diem collection.  That cloud paper is so cute!!!

Janet created this LO with the Life in Color collection.  That wooden background is so perfect for that photo.

Jennifer also used the Life in Color collection.  This collection is so versatile.  It gives the perfect vintage feel when paired with an old B&W photo!

Kelly used the Carpe Diem.  This LO just screams happy to me!  Pink, yellow and teal!  Perfect color combo!

Lisa used Life in Color.  Her LO's are always so fun to look at.  So many bits and pieces!

Mary-Ann created this stunning LO with the Carpe Diem collection.  So beautiful!

Orange used the Life in Color to scrap this adorable photo of her daughter.  I love all the layers on this LO!

Sherry used both collections on her LO!  I love the 3D effect of the flowers!

TinaGale made this gorgeous Disney LO with Life in Color!  This LO just makes me smile!
