Welcome back! Did you take a good look through the new gallery yesterday? Did you spy any layouts using Instagram photos? Today's post is going to be a veritable Smorsgarbord of layout ideas for you! I mentioned that I primarily use my Instagram photos for capturing everyday moments. Things like meals, daily activities, photos of my son, random craft projects I am working on... so those are the kind of pages I scrap. And there are many other kinds of photos you can take, and ways to use Instagram to capture life.
From meals, to reading to art to playing and pets, the collective loves capturing the details of daily life with Instagram.
This Snuggly Cat layout by Cristine uses an Instagram printed as a Polaroid.
On this layout I printed out my photos at 4x4 and then matted each with white cardstock.
Food & friends are always great subjects for using Instagram as Christine did here.
Laura captured and documented her love for smoothies.
and Sue shares her stack of summer reads.
But we can also use our camera phones for more posed shots, or to record special moments in our lives. Let's face it, sometimes the only camera we have on hand is the one in the phone.
I love how Christa used different sizes of photos on this page on her layout about how Okinawa already feels like home to her family.
These portraits of Stephanie's daughter are beautiful, and so is this stunning layout showcasing them!
Amy documents her family's first carriage ride. I love the blaze of lights she captured in her photo.
How about Selfies?
Turn that camera phone on yourself and get some photos to make a page all about you! If your phone has a front facing camera it is much easier to take a photo of yourself, than with a regular camera.
It doesn't even have to be your face. Here Christine shot looking down at her feet so she could do a page about her love for running.
Christa focused on just a portion of her face to talk about the changes in her vision over the years.
or you can cheat a bit like me, and include a little one in the selfie action!
You can harness the power of Instagram to work on special projects. Here are two great examples from Lisa.
This layout is her #fromwhereistand project. Lisa takes photos of her feet in different locations tagging them #fromwhereistand. Then she collected all the photos to make this page.
I love this second idea and will probably borrow it for myself! Lisa asked her friends on Instagram from all over the world to take a photo on the same day and use the same tag so that they could each find all the photos.
So there you have it. I hope these layouts motivate you some to get those photos off your phone and onto pages! Tomorrow, I'll share even more ways you can use your Instagram photos in memeory keeping.
