Instagram Ideas

I am obsessed with instagram...I love taking photos and playing around with all the great filter options (especially when I'm having a bad hair or makeup day - those filters hide all the flaws!)  Since one of my new years goals is to snap more photos, instagram definitely comes in handy because Mike and I always have our phones with us and I've been finding all kinds of awesome things to do with the pics once they've been taken.

I love how easy it's become to keep and store photos since digital cameras were invented but it's so hard to actually get photos printed out and put into any kind of photo album.  That's why these blurb books are amazing, they have special Instagram photobooks where you can download your entire online album and have a gorgeous photobook made and sent to you.  We have used blurb for several projects in the past and have always been so happy with their products.

I love this idea of creating photo strips from your instagram photos, this tutorial is super easy to follow.

Postal Pix is an app you can get for your phone where you can literally order prints from any photo in your camera phone library.  I love this.  You could snap tons of photos while on vacation and then have them ordered and on their way to you before you even get home!

This is another genius idea, instagrams made into magnets.  We keep a bunch of our favorite photos on display on our fridge but over time they get kind of beat up.  I am going to start ordering these to have a rotating display of photos up.
