Gone are the days where you take your roll of film to the nearest FotoMat, get doubles, and share your photos around with friend and family. Now, the numerous digital images we take often sit on our computers and phones, maybe making their way to Facebook or Instagram on occasion. Looking for a fun, easy way to share your family vacation photos? Here are a few ideas:
I love the look of scrapbooks, but don’t have the patience or artistic ability to create one. So, I started using Becky Higgins Project Life, and it makes creating scrapbooks much easier. You can easily purchase pages that fit your photos, as well as scrapbooking cards. I choose my favorite pictures, have them printed online (I use Shutterfly). Then, it’s easy to place them in the book. I usually create one book per year. Project Life can be purchased in many places, but I get it at Michaels.
We used to purchase art from our walls at different galleries and home stores. But now, I’d rather fill my walls with memories. I have my very favorite photos printed on canvas. I have them in our kitchen, bathroom, office, and living room, and prefer the framed canvas from Shutterfly.
If even Project Life scrapbooking seems intimidating, make a photo book! It’s simple – just upload your photos, select the order you want them to go in, add text, and order. There are lots of different places that make them – I order at Shutterfly.
I also put my printed pictures on my desk and bookshelves in frames. I also bring my Instax Instant Camera with me, and use the little photos in a photo album, in my planner, and in frames. Don’t have an Instax? You can also make instant pics with the Fujifilm Instax Share Smartphone Printer.
What do you do with your family vacation pictures?
