With Christmas almost here, I am here today to share a quick and easy gift idea using the Instax Vintage flip album and Filler cards found at Michaels stores. The album took me less than two hours to put together from editing and printing the photos to slipping them into the album and embellishing ! You cant argue with that at this time of the year right!!
My friend has her mum visiting from overseas for the holiday season so I grabbed photos from her FB page and Instagram and printed them using my Instax printer. It is a surprise gift for her to take back home at the end of her trip.
I started with the gorgeous floral Obsessed flip album and two of my most favorite Filler cards sets- the Floral and Friends set.
As an opener to the album I used one of the notepad pieces from the Floral Stationery Embellishment kit and the stamps from the Mini Journaling kit to create a fun title page. I adhered it to the top of the page so it lifts up.
I love the mix of fonts that creates an eclectic feel to the title page.
It lifts up to reveal a Filler card and photo embellished with the clear stickers from the Filler cards set.
Turning the page to reveal a double page spread. I have left the journaling cards blank so she can fill those in herself. I have embellished the photos with clear stickers and washi!
I added more stamping using the stamps from the Mini Journaling kit and the epoxy heart from the Floral Stationery embellishment kit.
The journaling card lifts up to reveal another photo underneath.
Another double spread this time I added some stamping and epoxy words to the filler cards for a fun effect!
Turning the page this time I layered one of the frames that comes in the Filler cards set over the photo and added an epoxy heart over the top. I added some glitter letters from the Floral Stationery embellishment kit onto another journaling card that I trimmed and notched so it can be lifted to reveal the photo underneath.
This double page spread is simply embellished with a Filler card and clear stickers.
I added one of the glitter frames from the Filler cards set over the top of my photo before slipping into the pocket.
Fun epoxy stickers from the Pink Stationery Embellishment kit completes the page.
Another journaling card adorned with glitter letter stickers and stamping creates an invite to write the story of the day.
More clear stickers and a coloured frame completes this part of the album.
My friend’s mum is here for another two weeks so I have filled the remaining pages in the album with filler cards and journaling cards. She will be able to send me the photos so I can print them but then she can fill the rest of the album herself.
I hope she enjoys this album as much as she has enjoyed her visit here to Australia!
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone, cherish the time with your family!
