Doodlebug Design: Insta Mini Album

I just love my Instax Camera and Instax printer.  The little pictures, that pop out automatically just make me smile! They give such a retro feel to any project!  When I saw the Insta Camera Cut file from the Hello Collection (available in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop) , I knew I had to make something with it!  I decided to design a little mini album featuring some fun pictures I took on a recent vacation to Aruba... and the Sweet Summer Collection was the perfect complement to my pictures!

The album itself was put together using some Gingham Linen Petite Prints and a paper from the Hello 6x6 Pad. For a fun twist, I created a slider... the little "insta" picture pulls from the top of the camera base showing my album title (and the adorable Steven "Seagull" !)  Here are a couple of more views of the album itself...

I created some accordion pages for the inside of the album.  Each page is layered with a different paper from the Sweet Summer Collection.  I also designed a frame file to cover the Insta pictures, to add a little more color.   Then came the fun part... mixing and matching This and That stickers, Icons Stickers, Odds & Ends, Chit Chats, and Tropical Punch Shaped Sprinkles from the Sweet Summer Collection to go along with my pictures!  Here are some close ups of the inside pages...

The cute little cactus is a Cute Clip from the Fun in the Sun Collection.

The anchor sticker is from the Anchor's Aweigh Icon Sticker Sheet.

The sailboat sticker is also from the Anchor's Aweigh Icon Sticker Sheet.
I'm so excited that this project turned out as I had imagined!  It's always a good creative day when that happens!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!


  1. Which colors of gingham prints were used on the cover and pages?

    1. Hi Janie, I used Lemon and Swimming pool. There's also a little limeade and the Dark blue is from the Hello Collection 6x6 pad, but you could use Blue Jean Gingham Linen Petite Prints. :)

    2. Will this be available as a kit?

    3. It might be, not sure yet. 😊

  2. OMG!! What a cute little mini album!
    Have a great day!
