Insta-Memories: Month In Review

I love the ease and convenience of Instagram! It takes about a second to record a moment or snapshot of your life and I love to use Instagram to record everyday moments. For this project I gathered a few Instagram photos from the last month or so to create a layout using the brand new Hello Sunshine collection that is shipping to stores in about 2 weeks!


I dropped several Instagram photos onto a blank canvas in Photoshop to print, after converting them all to black and white. I didn’t end up using all the photos.


I went with a grid design for my layout. A grid works perfectly with the square shaped Instagram photos. To define my photos I added a simple line of hand stitching between each.


Again, making full use of the square photos, I added frames from the Hello Sunshine Chipboard Stickers to a few of the photos, including the largest one in the centre! Love these!


And it was so much fun digging through the Hello Sunshine Ephemera package as well as all the stickers to find the perfect bits and pieces to embellish my layout.


This layout is actually quite different for me – it’s not my usual style of layering papers and die cuts! But I think it works well with the photo grid! I hope I’ve inspired you to print out a few of your Instagram pics to document snapshots of your life!
