{instagram mini album}


I spent about an hour of my Sunday morning making a super fun and simple Instagram mini album using some new supplies...


See all of the yumminess from Studio Calico, Amy Tangerine and Dear Lizzy?! SO.FUN.

Thanks to my Instagram friend, and fellow awesome blogger, Angie, I discovered an easy new way to print my insta photos and pick them up at Walgreens. Printicular is a great app and makes is so easy to get quick Instagram prints...especially when Walgreens is right down the street like mine is. :)

So back to my album. I used two different 6 x 6 paper pads, some American Crafts thickers and Dear Lizzy stickers, January calendar pocket from Studio Calico, washi tape, Smash pen {LOVE this thing}, binder rings and my Crop-A-Dile.

I started with the cover...


LOVE this paper...it is my favorite out of both stacks. I used the thickers, washi tape, a Dear Lizzy sticker, and cut apart the January calendar pocket from Studio Calico to complete the cover. 

Then for each page, I used a simple equation of paper + photo + washi tape and maybe another sticker/journaling tag or writing...here are some of my favorite pages...


And some of the details...


I also used something new for me...pieces of glassine paper. I love how they tone down the patterned paper and give another dimension to the pages. The Crop-A-Dile made it easy to punch holes for the binder rings because I could do 4-5 pages at a time. If you don't have a Crop-A-Dile, you can always use a traditional paper punch but you'll have to do 1-2 pages at a time.

I think this might become a monthly thing...it was such a quick and fun project.

Do you scrapbook your instagram photos?

PS - love that you used measuring washi tape to coordinate with your 'grow' photo. :)

Oooooh, Printicular - - that sounds just like what I need!! I have 1,800 pics on my phone and most of them are Instragram ones. I need to print a bunch off and Smashbook them!

Also, I placed an order for about 15 different kinds of Washi tape today from Etsy thanks to you and all the cute stuff you post. Trying to be like you and get my crafty on!

I am an Instagram addict. I have to confess to you--as soon as I finished reading this, I picked up my phone, downloaded Printicular, and put in my order at Walgreens down the street. I'm on my way to pick them up in just a minute! :) Thanks for the inspiration.

I always love these little albums you make and every month I think that I should make my own. What do you do with them when you're done? Do they have a special spot in your home?
