I got a Instax Mini 25 in January for my anniversary present and I have used it a little bit so when I decided to do a Day in the Life I thought what a great opportunity to use the film that I have laying around at home. I took the approach of taking a photo every hour or so during the day and put reminders in my phone to alert me as I most definetly would have forgotten by lunch time.
To display the 13 instax that I took over the course of the day used a WRMK 8.5 x 11 9 pocket page protector and some inspiration from Ali Edwards. I laid the instax in the order I wanted in the pockets and stuck them back to back with double sided craft tape. I recently was given an electric type writer from my mum that had been sitting around at her work for years – surprising it still works. I typed up a brief overview of what happened this day in 4 sections – Morning, Midday, Afternoon and Evening. I was gifted a Motex Embossing Label Maker for my birthday and haven’t really used it yet. I made labels with the times and a description e.g. 1pm LUNCH and stuck to the bottom of the photos. I also used the label maker to write the titles for the journalling cards and “day in the life”.
I used Ali Edwards trick of stapling the photos using my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to the page protector so they floated in the middle of the pocket. I finished off the title card with some washi tape, a date stamp, Amy Tangerine’s Camera Stamp and Kellie Stamps Today Stamp (not sure if that set is still available but similar one available from Elise Joy). This will fit perfectly into my PL Album.
