recycling a photo album refill/pages to make a mini album

I have found an album at a thrift store and thought of using it in a different way than it was supposed to. i used the refill of the album to match the mini folder binding that i was making. it serves as the base of my mini album pages/lay outs

what i did:

- i cut the refill to 7 1/2 x 5 1/4 (1 refill makes two of this)
- using my tim holtz binder ring (large size) i marked where the holes are to be punched
- then i punched two holes using my cropadile and i punched it 1/4 inch away from the edge of the page

i then i make the layouts for the pages. it was a bit challenging to make a layout cause it is small in size but it turned out so cute. below is a sample of one of the layouts i made

Layout: i used
dcwv grade school paper stack
prima flowers and bling
stamp for letters are from michaels $1 bin
recollection cardstocks for the mattes and other decorative strips
1/2 circle punch by stampin up
3/4 square punch by ek success
label punch by stampin up
scallop punch by ek success

house warming invitation card

this invitation was made with the help of my daughter for our house warming to be held on may 7th. she did the cutting of paper, embossing and attaching of flowers. i want her to know the fun of making cards and she enjoyed it.

i made this invitation card using cardstocks that i bought from dollar store (not acid free) as i know most of the people i will send it to will just put it in the trash later. the flowers are from prima and the stamped image is from the $1 bin (i am not sure if it is, but it is a very small stamp)from michaels
