Today, we’re excited to continue this inspiration-filled week with some fabulous cards from Jen Shults!

Jen’s Notes: For my first Simple Stories and Pockets and Pages collab card I made a
fun little birthday card for my cousin who just turned 10. She and my
oldest are just 6 weeks apart in age so it’s always so fun to make cute
little cards for her birthday! This Simple Stories A Charmed Life scrap
set is absolutely perfect for her. She loves all things Irish and green
so the wonderful theme of these papers matched her personality to a T!

Jen’s Notes: For the front of this card I used
Pockets and Pages Circle Words along with a whole slew of bits from the A
Charmed Life collection to make a fun collage. I added in lots of die
cut banners and ric rac to keep it whimsical and to finish off I added a
bit of stitching with white thread.

Here’s a closer look at the front collage:

Jen’s Notes: For
the inside I used a scrap of A Charmed Life 6×6 paper and a sticker
from A Charmed Life Fundamental Cardstock Stickers along with a
sentiment from Big Bold Birthday stamps in Nautical Blue ink from
Memento.

Jen’s Notes: My second card uses one of my most
favorite Pocket and Pages sets – InstaFun with coordinating dies. I
LOVE this stamp and die set. It’s so cute and so versatile. I started
with a kraft card base and then laid out all my papers. I just adore the
little collage sheets in the A Charmed Life 6×6 paper pad – they make
card layouts so fast and easy to put together. Next I die cut all of my
other elements and assembled the camera. To finish off I added a bit of
stitching and a twine bow! Super quick and fun!
