Creating Holiday Story Memories with Instax
Christmas is my favourite time of year. When I was growing up, I would imagine all sorts of grand schemes with our Christmas tree, spending hours playing with my toy army up and down the tinsel rows. This year, I put my tree up the day after Remembrance day and I can’t help but capture my kids imaginations on film and making memories with Instax.
The new Instax SQ10 Instax Camera makes it easy to snap those special moments into instant memories. What I loved most about the new Instax camera model was the ability to edit and apply filters before printing, like other digital camera options. The LCD screen gives an easy display for viewing while you edit. Choose to print right away or save to the internal memory or a microSD card.
Memories with Instax
Having this SQ10 Instax Camera sure makes it fun when silly moments pop up out of the blue. From simple moments with cupcakes to party favours and DIY gift giving, the ideas are endless. Personally, I love how sequence photos can create story memories with Instax. It’s pretty easy to tell how this story plays out with a wish, a surprise and satisfaction by expression.
Like last year, I decided to tag my gifts with photos of the kids and their unique personalities. I find personalized wrapping has is a thoughtful touch, and a giggle doesn’t hurt either.
