I Have Decided...

That I need an Instax.  Not just a fun little, oh, I think I want that....that looks fun.  No.  I NEEEEED it!  And I'm going to get it.  In a few weeks when I can save a little money since they're not super cheap.  I'm going to treat myself.  And I even have a project in mind.

I just signed up for Ali Edwards' self-paced class called Scrapbook on the Road.  Ali is one of my biggest inspirations and to finally get a scrapbooking while traveling class from her is so exciting!  She goes over her process and shows some really cool techniques that make me want to go out and buy some paint...real paint!  I'm so excited to try some of these cool tricks.  P.S. This class is only $14...soooo worth it!  Highly suggested.

So anyway, not only am I learning cool things, now I'm really wanting to travel just so I can make a book!  However, that's not in the cards for us right now.  There is a big trip we will be making in July...a trip to the hospital to welcome a little angel into the world!  I was inspired by Ali's class to make a mini book to take the hospital with me to document the birth of our second daughter.  And I thought it would be really cool to take all the pictures with the Instax camera.  Of course, we'll have our big camera and our video camera as well.  I just thought it would be special to take the small, credit card sized pictures that print instantly and place them right into the album at the hospital.  How special does that sound?

So I decided that I need an Instax.  I NEEEEEEED it!


  1. I love my Instax! You are going to love using it. Make sure and look for a deal that comes with some film as well. Sometimes it's less expensive.
    Can't wait to see photos of the photos! lol

  2. I got one for Christmas and I love it! We are taking a big trip in a few weeks and I am excited to scrapbook on the road with it!

  3. I keep putting one in my Amazon cart and taking it back out again. Maybe for my birthday!

  4. Sounds like a cool class! Have fun!

  5. i <3 my instax. i stuck it on my cmas list one year, and was sure i'd never actually get it. my bro & SiL got it for me. so glad they did.
