Today, we’re taking a look at two simply adorable projects created by designer Courtney Kelley:

Courtney’s Notes: Today I have two cards to share that I created with a few Pockets &
Pages dies and the Simple Stories Collection – A Charmed Life. This
bright collection had me thinking of fun & happy cards – so I
decided to create a good luck card and a general encouragement card. 

Courtney’s Notes: For my first card I paired the Pockets & Pages – 3×4 Photo Frame
with A Charmed Life Insta-Squares and a couple of flower accents. The
4×4 Insta-Squares are the perfect size to use inside the Pockets & Pages die cut.

Courtney’s Notes: To create my card I die cut the Pockets & Pages – 3×4 Photo
Frame from the Whitewashed Wood paper, then die cut the Insta-Square to
fit inside the frame for my sentiment. Lastly, I added a bit of zig zag
stitching and layered a Bits & Pieces flower and a Cardstock Sticker
flower.

Good Luck supplies:

Cardstock Stickers) Simple Stories, (white thread) Ikea

Courtney’s Notes: My second card features a bunch of simple elements that I die cut using
the Pockets & Pages – Essentials 2×2 and Label It along with a
couple of chipboard hearts from the Charmed Life Collection.

Courtney’s Notes: To create the banners I used a Label It die to cut the two banners
and then trimmed off the right side to make them a bit smaller. The
Smile sentiment was die cut from an Insta-Square and the blue banner is
the blue camera paper found in the A Charmed Life 6×6 paper pad. To cut
the arrow I used a die that is part of the Pockets & Pages –
Essentials 2×2 set and then added to the mix a couple of chipboard
hearts.
