Anyone out there love Polaroids? I do. And I have an Instax that I like to pull out every now and again. It's awesome and you can find it here. It's a lot of fun to use but cost effective it is not. It's about $1.00 per photo so you really have to make them worth it.
Now, Amy Tangerine & Kelly Purkey have this do-flicky called a Fugifilm Pivi and that's even cooler. You can make polaroid photos from the pics that you take on your DSLR or other camera-that way you get the shot you want the first time. Unfortunately, with the Instax sometimes you need a few shots to get the one you are looking for!
That being said, it is fun to tinker around with and so when we spent some time at the cabin in November I took it along and got a few shots of the action!
I used 'The Paperie's' March kit to make this little mini-album with the resulting photos.
The album was quite simple to make. It's 4 sheets of 8" by 4" paper, scored down the middle to make a number of 4" by 4" pages. After scoring each sheet and putting them together the way I wanted I sewed down the spine on both sides to keep the whole thing in tact. Easy. Then I just added photos, a bit of washi tape and a few lines of journaling on each page-just a simple caption.
Just a very simple album with a few punched butterflies, hearts and the like here and there. Nothing too exciting but a good way to use up some scraps and get those polaroids scrapbooked.
I also made a few cards out of the pieces that didn't make it into the album.
Simple and easy-a sentiment on a little piece of cardstock cut out like a little flag piece.
