With a majority of my photos being taken with my phone and posted to social sites like Instagram, I find I'm using them more frequently on my scrapbook pages as well. I love looking through my phone's photo feed for page inspiration, and with so many portable printers and printing apps, it's easy to print them off and get started on a page. One of my favorite ways to showcase square Instagram prints on a layout is with Crate Paper chipboard frames.
I've selected a variety of frames from Notes & Things and The Pier collections to use on this layout. Most of my photos were square, but I also threw in a few rectangles for good measure. A simple grid design is an easy way to mix photo orientations and sizes.
I added in both color and texture by tucking patterned papers behind my frames. The 6x6 papers pads, with their smaller patterns, are ideal for this type of layering!
My title is a die cut word combined with a gold word sticker from the Styleboard line. I also added some other gold stickers to several of the chipboard frames to carry the gold color through the design.
I typed my journaling on two different tags from Notes & Things and slipped them in behind two of the frames. If you plan to do this, just use adhesive on three edges of your frame, leaving one open to slide the tag in.
So print out some of the Instagram photos and grab some Crate chipboard frames - together they make a perfect pair!
