Yearbook: Fave Shoes

blog-image_yearbook

Hello! Caroli here and I’m so glad of posting for the first time this month using the beautiful kit Moon Child.

Today I want to show you this project I made for documenting something very simple: the pretty shoes of my baby boy! I love the idea of documenting simple facts like this, because otherwise we probably will forget about them in future. Making a layout about something cute and not important at all like a pair of baby shoes seems perfect to me šŸ™‚

When I was pregnant I discovered mocs style shoes and I love them. They are cute and have a lot of benefits for babies, so I got my boy a pair of them and this is what I am documenting here.

As you can see, I used a grid design and some instax pics, it’s such a simple composition but I like how it came out. The colors of this kit are really pretty, all soft but with a touch of bold.

I love cacti and as soon as I saw this one in one of Kesi Art papers I knew I wanted to cut it and use it as embellishment in my page.

I also cut some feathers from Kaiser Kraft patterned paper and used them to embellish thisĀ  card with a dream catcher, I think they look even prettier with the extra feathers, not to mention the puffy dots by Fancy Pants, how cute are they!

Something I really loved of this kit are the Thickers by Dear Lizzy and those chipboard alphas by Fancy Pants. Love the combination of hand-brushed words and block printing for my title.

I am so happy with this layout, now my boy will be able to see how cool he looked when he was 6 months old rocking his cute mocs shoes šŸ™‚ This is what I love about scrapbooking, the possibility of turning something ordinary into an extraordinary memory. ā™„

Have a lovely day!

Geek Lab: 5 Reasons why I love my Fuji Instax Mini 8

geeklab

Hello there!Ā  Caroli here once again to show you the last post of the month using the gorgeous January kit Alegria.

Today I want to tell you some of the reasons why I love instant cameras, more specifically the Fuji Instax Mini 8.Ā  Last year I bought one as a self present for my birthday and I can certainly tell that this is one of the best gadgets I’ve got so far. Do you want to know why, well, here I go!

1. I love it because I get the pic inmediately.
For an scrapbooker this is real gold! Sometimes I am in a hurry for a project or maybe I really don’t feel like spending so much time taking a pic with my reflex camera, downloading it to the computer, editing it and finally printing it. In that situation the Instax Mini is my best option, you just grab it, make click and the pic is printed and ready to be used, priceless!


2. I love it because of the beautiful vintage feeling of the pics.
The pics get printed in a cute credit card size, with enough space for writing someting below if you want to, not to mention that the colors have that vintage look, love love love!

 

3. I love it because of the excitement for unknown results.
I still remember the excitement of shooting analogous photography. The uncertainty of not knowing if your pic would come out as you thought and the happiness when the pic came out even better than you though.Ā  At least for me this is one more reason to love my Instax šŸ˜‰

 

4. I love it because it’s oh so cute!
In addition to shoot great pics, the Instax Mini 8 is such a cute device! I have a white one but it comes in several colors,Ā  you can even buy a pretty bag for it, adding more cuteness if that is possible.

 

5. I love it because I can store the pics in even cuter ring albums
You can use the pics on your layouts, mini albums, or even can store them in tiny ring albums created specially for them!Ā  I got these albums some months ago from the Clique Kits Store, in gold color, the perfect combo ever šŸ™‚

 

Well, now that you know why I love this camera and its format I want to share this layout I made using some pics I took with my Fuiji Instax 8.
