Love Laminated

Memories. Mine seem to be stuck on my iPhone. Attached to my Instagram. Every now and then… I scroll through my photos. It’s only then that I wish I had them with me. Physically. In my hands.

Oh… I’ve printed them off at home. But it’s not the same. And my photo printer… blah.

Then… I was sent a Fellowes Saturn2 95 laminator to write about. (I wasn’t monetarily compensated for this post, but I can report that I am now officially addicted to laminating things!)

Opening up the Fellowes Saturn2 95 motivated me to find a way to get my memories off of my phone and onto paper! So… I did a little Google search and I discovered an app through Walgreens. It’s called Printicular on iPhone. (I’d love to know if it’s available on Droid… let me know.) The app allowed me to order prints from my camera roll and my Instagram! YAY!

I started thinking of the perfect project to start with and immediately… I thought of a creating a mini album! I love mini albums… they’re so easy to make and laminating it would allow the album to last a long time.

I picked up my prints at my nearby Walgreens and excitedly hurried home. It was so thrilling to peek through all my pictures! It was as if I was seeing them for the first time! I used my Spellbinders Grand Calibur die cutting machine to cut some photo pages into a cute shape (Labels One) and I wrote sweet notes on some of the pages. Once I had the pages how I wanted them… I put them into Fellowes photo sized lamination pockets and fed them through the machine. It was so quiet! I had never used a home laminator before and I was totally surprised at how easy it really was!

After I laminated all the pages… I used a paper cutter to trim off a bit and then punched holes for the page rings. It really turned out to be a verysweet book. I’d show you the whole thing… but it’s actually a very personal gift for a very special person. And that… is another story that I’m not ready to share. Yet. xo
