crafting: instagram memory book for the lazy crafter

 i'm kind of a lazy crafter. i'm lucky if pictures make it into a frame... yet alone into scrapbooks.

 so i needed an easier alternative. that's where molskine notebooks come into play!
they are thin notebooks sewn down the center and are super light, portable and come in packs of three

i got mine at target but you can find them at any office supply store, barnes and nobles... they are pretty popular if you look around.

 i printed out my instagram photos using a kodak picture maker
i used the photo ID setting to keep the images square with the rounded corners

 i quickly went through the sticker aisle at michaels and grabbed my loot
i made it out alive... no knife fights or pulling hair!

i even bought some scrapbooking adhesive
so my book would feel more legit!
{ well actually its really easy to use since you can just roll out sticky stuff without getting sticky }

 i used some numbers on the front with the year and decided that i would devout one notebook per year to save space and try to limit the amount of photos i use
{ i'm asian... i take about 200 photos a day between blogging and having cute kids }

 and then i went to town!

 i added captions to remind me what was so special.

 i am going to keep the books in the living room so they are easy to grab and look at.
they are fun for guests to flip through too since it gives a realistic slice of what we are up to and doing.
