so in that case.....say hello to my latest LOVE, OBSESSION....and HAPPY PLACE!
this is just a little sampling of the newest instax family to be hitting michaels stores VERY soon. it is the most perfect collaboration between heidi and instax. and well...it is just AWESOME. think cute little instax photos combined with some of the trendiest, prettiest, freshest products to house, display and celebrate your life and your memories. no, i do not think it get's any better.
i have been SO lucky to be given the chance to work with these beautiful brand new products these past few weeks and today i want to share one (of the many) projects i was inspired to create.
using the brand new heidi swapp instax mini albums, my instax mini 8 camera and instax share SP-1 printer.
the photos inside this album are a combination of photos that i took with both the camera itself...and this fabulous printer. now...can we talk a little about this printer??? i am obsessed. it is amazing.
it literally takes ANY photo you have on your mobile device and with one simple click with the Instax Share APP you can make any of your photos an INSTAX. yes...i know. freaking amazing.
so now...let's take a peek inside my album!
i combined my instax photos with some of the gorgeous new fun embellishments that will be soon available at michaels. i also used a lot of new heidi swapp products that are in stores right now to accent my album also. i love how her products all work together amazingly...regardless of the collection it is from. above i used one of the new instax stickers to the bottom photo. it is clear with gold polka dots and so cute. above i used some of the black and white word stickers you can find at michaels right now. i find these are so perfect for instax photos because they are just the right size and come in so many fun captions, words and phrases. the circle tag that i journaled on is also available at michaels right now. i clipped it on to my album with a gold bull dog clip and embellished the tag with a strip of ADORABLE heidi swapp washi that you can find in the Instax Card Kit.
these photos were taken from an "instax night" we had. we just took 15 minutes to snap a few photos. i simply placed them in these page protectors adding washi, stickers and a fun camera clip. these are all part of the new heidi swapp instax collection.
i loved adding extra bits into this album. the tags, labels and stickers below are available now at michaels. they work so perfectly in these mini albums. heidi swapp also has these really fun glitter instax frames. they are perfect for layering directly on top of an instax photo....or you could layer on top of a regular photo (trimmed to instax size) to give your photo the instax look. awesome, right?
next, i loved using some of the heidi swapp acetate words alongside my instax prints.
to do this, i simply left one photo out of the sleeve. i adhered an acetate word on top of the photo sleeve using a glue dot. i then added some of the mint gold word jumbles stickers below.
i also added one of these stickers to my instax photo as a photo caption/embellishment. again...they are the perfect size for instax photos and look great on them!
another fun thing i did in my instax mini album was create a "background" using some of the heidi swapp picturesque project life cards. i found two of the same cards, trimmed them down to size and then inserted them into the instax sleeves. i then placed 2 instax directly on top of the photo sleeve and adhered one slightly above the other with heidi swapp washi tape. this adds a fun interactive element to the mini album and is also a great way to just add more photos in!
last but not least...i added this really cute polka dot envelope from the Instax Card Kit into my album.
at the back of these mini albums is a spot for some "on board" storage. i love that! so when i found this cute envelope...i thought what a perfect way to store even MORE photos into my book...and i have a place to keep the envelope...so genius!
i hope that you have enjoyed my little mini album walk through and are inspired to make one yourself. instax prints are such a great way to enjoy and relive your memories.
