Prima - Tales of You and Me with Card Tutorial


Today I have three very different projects for you featuring flowers, papers and wood elements from the Tales of You and Me collection from Prima.

I absolutely love pink and white and was inspired by this color combination to create a beautifully layered Valentine's Day card.  I used ephemera, flowers and lace trim to add texture to my project.  This card is truly for someone special.

Altered Phone Frame

I was inspired by the beautiful design of the vintage metal phone to create this altered piece featuring a beautiful photo of my relatives on their 50th wedding anniversary.  

I kept the design simple using just a few key pieces from the “Tales of You and Me” collection.  I added wood icons, flowers and metal embellishments for frame my photo.  

To add a bit of softness to the phone, I used pink cording and soft pink liquid pearls to finish my design.

Layout Page

Inspiration abounds in the ”Tales of You & Me” collection.  Gorgeous flowers, wood icons and floral imagery were perfect for the feminine design of my layout.  

I created the title by punching circles from the Alphabet Cards collection.  They are the perfect size for creating layout titles.  

I stamped a bird using Bloom stamps and adding it within the flowers that crown my photo.
