Photo wallet and matching card

I have made a similar mini album like this before, but I loved the idea of a photo wallet with this belly band that you can just slide right off the wallet.  I thought it was too cute - and no velcro necessary! 
Almost all of the supplies for this project came from a retired Simply Scrappin' kit called Summer Home that I got off of the clearance rack a year or two ago. 
The original tutorial idea came from UStamp - Let's Score!
So, when you first open it, there are two spots for pictures - the only additional supply right here is a glimmer basic brad - the copper shaded brad in the center of the circle here.
And here it is opened but not folded out.  Again, basic pieces here - a vintage trinket brad in the square sticker.  The banner is made from circles I cut in half and placed under some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine. 
And here is the first fold out - nice open spots for pictures to be added.
Finally, it is completely open here - I probably made this entire mini album and the matching card below in an hour and a half.  Obviously there is nothing that is earth shattering about it, but it is a great album to use as a gift or even as a quick spot for some of those pictures you've been meaning to print out for months!  (Did I say months?  Oops.....time to get some pics printed!!!)
Here's a quick little matching card - mostly just scraps here.  I added some Baja Breeze grosgrain ribbon and a basic pearl. 
I think I have just the person in mind to give this to, also!

Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Summer Home DSP (retired)
Accessories:  Summer Home stickers (retired), basic rhinestones, basic glimmer brads, vintage trinkets, baja breeze grosgrain ribbon
