A Wall Collage of Colorful Square Frames

We got inspiration for today’s blog from Sherry and John at Young House Love. They created these cute colorful frames for square note cards and that’s when Inspiration hit us; this display would be perfect for Instagram photos. This display is simple, yet effective and if you love color and simplicity in your home then this display is for you. We are telling you, a square-on-square display looks amazing.   For this display you will need 6 or 8 (depending on your space size) plain white square frames that have a thick boarder. You will be creating a wall collage display in a grid form; either 6 frames (2x rows of 3) or 8 frames (2x rows of 4).     You also need to choose the scrapbook paper colours that will be your background mat. It is best to select colours that compliment your space and your existing colour theme – don’t be scared to do a couple of frames in the same color.     When you have your background colours sorted, add your Instagram prints into the middle of the square frame. To enhance your display even more, try matching your Instagram prints with the background color that will suit it best (but this isn’t essential). Once you have your Instagram photos in your frame you are ready to hang your colorful Instagram frames and enjoy your new display!!   Check out Young House Love for detailed step by step instructions to create this awesome display in your...

A few weeks ago we gave you 5 tips for making your Instagram pictures awesome. Today we want to extend on that and give you more tips and tricks that will turn you into a better Instagrammer!   These tips are simple to execute and will give your Instagram photography a more professional look.   Focus the subject in your photo Your smartphone camera has a relatively wide depth of field, which means nearly everything in the scene is always in focus.

Why we Love a Memory Box

If you have every intention of making a scrapbook, but you just never seem to get round to the sorting, designing and gluing, why not try a memory box instead. The beauty of a memory box is that it can hold not only your Instagram photos, but any mementos that bring any significance to you and reminds you of special memories. Memory boxes take little time to prepare, and an awesome idea that you can do is make a memory box for each of your children, each vacation or important occasions etc. We love this idea as it gives organisation to your memory boxes and in later years your children will love a memory box filled with reminders of their childhood. We realize that some people have thousands of Instagram photos and there is no way you can display them all in your home. This is why a memory box is perfect; you still get the joy of printing your Instagram photos and they still get put to good use. Also don’t think that a Memory box is just extra clutter around your home; they can be a fun and decorative item for a shelf. You can cover your memory box in photos or simply paint it and label the side as to whose box it is, e.g. JONNY, OUR WEDDING, SPAIN. We really think this is something worthwhile as when you look inside a memory box you can remember all the beautiful and funny things that have happened to...
