Recycling Christmas cards on layouts

Hi Everyone & a happy new year to you all! If the weather is cold & snowy where you are, I hope you are keeping safe & warm.

I was inspired by Jan's post below to re-use Christmas cards on my layouts.

To mat the photo on this layout I used a Christmas card I received this year, it's actually the inside of the card! The transparency at the bottom was also from another card.

Here I've used a card again for the title & I also used the reverse of the back of the card for my journalling space, I just stamped a label design and used my own handwritting.

Don't forget you can also re-use your Christmas gift tags, packaging & wrapping paper for your crafting!



  1. Love your green crafts!

    I nominated you for a Happy 101 Award
