Instax Layout

Occasionally we will use a card kit to make something other than cards – might be Project Life cards, a layout or a mini album. This month my daughter happened to be using her instax camera she got for Christmas so I decided to make a layout about our new cabin using left over bits from the kit.

Instructions:

  1. Use black and pink envelopes (you have already cut flaps from them for cards) to create spots for hidden journaling.
  2. Mat your photos on the envelopes
  3. Pull some white cardstock from you stash and cut to 5 x4 pieces to create journaling cards
  4. Cut two 2×3 inch strips and fold over and adhere to top left edge of journaling blocks to create pull tabs
  5. Insert into envelopes, adhere (only placing adhesive on the envelopes) to white cardstock leaving ¾ inch gap between two envelopes
  6. Cut 1 ¾ x 3 inch strips from diamond, multicolor heart and yellow heart patterned paper (all scraps you should have from previous cards)
  7. Cut ‘v’ for banner into strips
  8. Adhere under envelopes to right side
  9. Stamp sentiment using font stamp and date stamp
  10. Adhere Freckled Fawn stickers as embellishments
  11. Done!

Hope you enjoy the projects we made with the January card kit.  Call the store to get yours today – remember we’ve moved to bimonthly kits.
