5 Ways to Use Instalife™ City Limits

Instalife™ is our mini pocket scrapbooking line: From mini albums and Memory Protectors™ to mini cards you slide into place next to your photos, these petite products are just too cute!

Today we’re going to show you five different ways you can use our Instalife™ City Limits cards, which are only available through April 30.

1. Traditional Mini Album

You can see that the cards have fun designs and cutouts, along with spaces for journaling. Simply slide your photos and cards in, and you’re done! The album possibilities are endless: Create one for graduation, one with photos of your family for your kids to take to college, or one with photos of your pet. It’s also a great way to keep all the photos you have on your phone. Just print them out, and create a mini album of your adventures!

2. Mother’s Day Gift

Because the cards are soft blues, greens, and greys, it’s easy to add other colors into the mix! Here we added some Pixie cardstock and ink to make this a feminine album for Mother’s Day. The card sentiments are generic, so they work great for any occasion.

3. Father’s Day Cards

Once Mother’s Day is over, use the cards to create unique Father’s Day cards. On the left card, we have two 2″ x 2″ Instalife™ cards stacked on top of each other. On the card on the right, we used a 4″ x 4″ Instalife™ card with a cutout and stamped a sentiment inside of it.

4. Everyday Life™ Album

What’s great about the Instalife™ cards is that they’re small enough to use as accents for your My Crush® pages. You can attach them quickly and easily, and they even go really well with the colors of the My Crush® Everyday Life pages.

5. Traditional Scrapbooking

The cards also work great on traditional scrapbook pages. These 4″ x 4″ cards act as frames for the photos, and the little 2″ x 2″ card makes a fun embellishment when combined with some ribbon.

Instalife™ cards may be small, but their potential is huge! We hope this artwork inspires you to think outside the box—there are so many possibilities! To learn more about this artwork, watch this video:

  1. What a perfect way to present a special occasion as well! I’m looking forward to making one of these for my son in laws parents who won’t be able to attend the kindergarten graduation ceremony for my daughters 2 little guys in June!
