Instax Vintage is in the house. And I could not be more excited about more Instax Prompt Albums to share my photos and tell my stories.
The most recent favorite prompt album is the one seen in the above photo. It’s called the Remember Prompt Album. It’s black and grey hues completely speak to me. Not to mention that retro-feel cover with the sentiment: These are the days I want to remember from now until forever. Love that so much.
And right now what I want to remember is this 16 year-old and images from her life and her story. From right now.
To help me do just that, I of course am using the Instax Vintage Prompt Album as well as some cards and envelopes from the Heidi Swapp Stationery Collection.
In addition, this assortment of HS Washi Tape will also help me pull this meaningful album together. The Instax Vintage, Stationery Collection and this Washi Collection are all available at Michaels Stores.
To start, I wanted to add a Stationery card to the very beginning of the album.
Using the WeRMemoryKeepers Tab Punch Board, I added a tab to the card. This not only gave a tab with which to open the card up, but it also trimmed the card down so it would fit well inside the book.
The first photo was placed inside one of the Filler Card frames. On the next page a journal card plus stickers was used to write a note to my girl. These journal cards will be used over and over again in this album.
As stated above, this is an Instax Prompt Album. Each of the inside pages contains a simple prompt. I used these journal jump-off phrases to ‘write’ to my daughter. To journal to her, from me, the story of the photo included on the page. This is how the entire album will go.
Allow me to show off a few of these pages inside this book. Let me invite you to get creative with this album and show you several techniques how you can do just that.
First, use Filler Cards just as they are. Here Washi Tape was used to attach one of the image Filler Cards, Love Today, to the left-side page.
On the prompt page I attached the photo with more tape. Using one of the pattern Filler Cards, I cut-out a small tag and notched it at the end. Then I added one of the Filler Card stickers as a photo embellishment.
Hidden journaling was placed under the photo. As you will see, lots of interactive techniques found in this Prompt Album.
On this next page, one of the Stationery envelopes was used and attached right to the page.
Also included is one of the journal cards from the Sticker Tin. It was attached to the flap and holds additional journaling plus an easy tab to open the envelope.
Inside contains a journal card from the Filler Cards full of words for my girl.
Several pieces of Washi Tape plus a Filler Pack sticker was used to attach the ‘Funday’ photo and give it some pretty.
Love the hues and patterns found in this Instax collection. It’s so rich and sophisticated.
This page uses glitter frames and more pattern cards to create layers and a point of interest on the left page. I just went ‘scrapbook’ here with the embellishments that also includes enamel stars from one of the Stationery Buzzward Sticker sheets.
A frame, a strip of Washi, and a little star is all this Good Lookin’ page needed to bring it to completion.
The next pages takes advantage of the WeRMemoryKeepers Planner Punch Board.
Using one of the Spiral Punch Inserts holes were punched in the side so that the envelope will easily fit into the spiral binding of the Prompt Album.
Again, a Filler Card was adhered to the top flap and then layered with a Buzzword enamel arrow.
The back of the Filler Card was a great place to add an additional photo. And of course, another Stationery Card was used on the inside to tell this story of my gorgeous SnapChat photo takin’ girl and her dreams. Have I told you how much I love this album and all this interactive-ness!
If I were to pick a favorite page created so far in this album, it would be this last one included here today. That’s only if I had favorite…but I really don’t. I can’t. I love them all.
This page utilizes layers and notching of Filler Cards. I want to invite you to cut those cards up. Use them as you would on a scrapbook page. Keep it simple. Or add all that makes you happy. But above all, remember to tell the story of the prompt and use those journal cards to journal your heart out.
OK…so maybe this photo is not one of mischievous smiles, but I know these girls better than anyone. I know their story and totally look forward to using the other Prompt Albums in this Instax Vintage Collection to tell them their stories right now. My hope is that the techniques and artistry found on these pages inspires you to do the same.
