Glitter Girl and Instant Photo Inspiration - scrapbooking polaroids and instax pictures
Glitter Girl got quite excited this week upon reading this thread on the message boards and realising it was time for an entire episode devoted to instant photos, like Polaroids and Instax. She got so excited that she went a bit over the top, with an extended episode just over forty minutes long including two scrapbook pages and a section all about your options for instant cameras and prints. Grab a drink and have a watch, won’t you?

If any of the products in this week’s episode strike your fancy, do click over and scroll down the page to add them to your shopping cart. There are quite a few of my favourites in this episode: wood veneer shapes, that Bella Blvd alphabet in several colours and the Paper Cottage collection pack from BasicGrey.

scrapbook page
The first project in this week’s episode includes a vintage Polaroid from my youth. Most of the Polaroid prints from my family were taken at Christmas, but I really wanted to tell the longer story of my first bicycle rather than focusing on the Christmas gift aspect, so I didn’t scrap this in reds and greens. Pink and aqua (and this time, red) are winding up on my table a lot lately.

The second page is one tiny, recent Instax Mini picture printed from my regular digital camera on a Pivi portable printer. I know not everyone likes one tiny picture on a big 12×12 page, but I like variety, so sometimes I think that’s just right. Amy and I have started a bit of a tradition of a photo of her in front of her new collection in a certain style, so this shot from the summer show was perfect for writing down a few details about this lovely girl who is a faraway friend.

Onward, covered in glitter, my dear scrapbookers!

adventures of glitter girl

The Adventures of Glitter Girl is a weekly series on Two Peas in a Bucket, and goes live every Wednesday. I’ll share each adventure here shortly after that. I hope you enjoy her quests for crafting happiness, and if you ever have a scrapbooking dilemma yourself, you can always call her to action on the message board.

    I love your combination of colors and papers, I do wish I could do that – it would look a disaster.

    I just wanted to leave a little note to let you know how much I enjoy these videos. I haven’t been able to scrapbook for about 9 months now (after my daughter was born there wasn’t time and space to get my supplies out, and now that I have a bit more time, we’re about to move… but SOON I’ll have space to use my stuff!!)… and watching these videos goes a long way toward scratching my scrapbook itch (I miss it so much!). It’s like scrapbooking vicariously :) Your pages are beautiful, and I like to think that when I get back to making my own pages, some of your loveliness will have rubbed off on me :)
