Instax Love

I love my instax camera but not as much as my daughter. If she sees it unguarded she is off trying to take photos with it. She has already figured out how to turn the camera on and how to make it take a photo - she finds using the viewfinder a little more challenging. She and my husband had a bit of a play with the instax over the weekend and I was not at all surprised to see that Scarlett's photo of her Daddy was better than his of her.

I was completely over working on my New Zealand vacation photos so I cracked open my Central High kit from Studio Calico and grabbed the instax photos and sat down to check my Facebook. As luck would have it Creative Scrappers had just posted their new sketch and it was perfect for the instax sized prints. I was in business.

Here is the sketch I was working from.



Now I only had two photos but I did not let that stop me!




I fully intended to just use my new kit with this sketch but I found myself reaching for my box of embellies to find a good range of round shapes for the embellishment column. I included some Amy Tangerine flair from the new Ready Set Go line that was in my add on. I also added a Pink Paislee green button, some MME brads and a Basic Grey number brad from the kit. The flair in the title was from Sasha's Paper Play store on etsy I believe. I also included some SC veneer and the tag and envelope are both from BG's Clippings range. I added a few of the little puffy stickers from Ready Set Go to the paper to add some interest to the bottom third of the page.

I am really happy with this layout and really pleased to be working on something current. I am off to order some more recent photos now to keep me motivated to scrap! I ordered all four add ons with the SC October kit so I really need to get my August and September kits worked through pronto!

  6. I love letting my boys have the camera because it is the best way to see the world as they see it! They may not be clear perfect pictures but they tell the story of how my boys see the world and that is a precious thing!! Great job with the sketch!
