here we go ~ world wide insta meet up

3.19.2015

In light of the World Wide Insta Meet this weekend over on Instagram, the Heidi Swapp Media team decided to create their own way to celebrate the visual world of Instagram.

A couple of us are sharing ways to use Instagram photos by taking them out of our phones and documenting the story.

And this is my way.

I used the Vintage Gold Foil binder from Heidi Swapp's Wanderlust collection.  With this album I collected Instagrams from my phone as well as my girlfriends' phones from a recent little vacay to the coast.

All the details for how I went about printing these photos can be found today on the HeidiSwapp blog.

Today I would encourage you to grab a tall glass of something something, and simply enjoy the eye candy here of this 'best trip ever' as well as how my Insta's made it into this here album.

As I explain in the original post, I am using the pocket page protectors that are part of the Wanderlust collection and fit 3x3 photos. Perfect Insta size, right? The top pocket here holds part of the Lace Paper, glitter tape from the Flea Market Pouch Kit, and a clear star geo element from the Flocked Acetate Shapes.

I have always loved clear elements and think there is no reason to make pockets perform for this function.

Something that I have always adored about mini albums is the invitation factor. To see all these elements and that spray painted gold Charm peeking out and inviting the reader in. Ah...I could look at this all day.

Next page is a Journal sheet with plenty of journaling as well as one of our Instas. The 'today' Wood Veneer is sprayed with Tea Color Shine.

Gold is found everywhere in this album. The subtle hues of the salmon and tea and gold set the tone for this whole book for me. Not to mention some of my friends Instas were filtered, so it just all worked together to keep the same feel. THE OC was foiled using the Letter Foil Kit. So fun.

I did not take to over embellishing every page. This one is fairly simple. But the Tab Dividers just take on a whole focus of their own...that with the PURE HAPPY Foil Kit words added to it's cover...it needed not much else.

 If you follow me at all, you know I keep my albums just repeating the same page elements so I don't have to keep making stuff up...LoL. So here, after the Tab Divider, another clear element is used to introduce the reader to the next section of the book. The next day in our mini vacay.

 You can see I did the same process as before. A photo on the bottom half and the Lace Paper on the top half.

The next page is showing up the same as page two in the beginning of the album. Did you notice the Minc pieces I have been using throughout? The 'good times' is part of my favorite Chipboard Shapes. If you pick up just one Minc accessories pack, get that one...oh...and the Icon Stickers too.

Here again, a Journal Page with a photo, some Wood Veneer, and a few other elements. I call this 'not re-inventing the wheel everytime'. Just follow a page plan and the focus in the creating is on the photos+story.

 And this might be my most fav clear page..and also the end of this post...

The Foil Kit with dimensional words. I love how this looks on a clear page! With words layered on top of the page. (WordJumbleStickers found at HobbyLobby), and glitter and that ocean! ah...it makes for a most happy page. A new fav album. And inspiration to go on another trip!

Thank you for staying till the end.

  3. I love this and want to make my own! However it seems that I can't find the Wonderlust inserts anywhere and only can find the binder. Super Sad!
