I recently purchased an Erin Condren Life Planner and have watched about a billion YouTube videos on ways to use the planner, decorate it and make it my own. The planners are personalized so I have to wait for it to come, but I am super excited. I prepped some images for my planner. I am excited to turn the page into a new week and see a smiling face shining back at me.
There are some apps and sites that will print Instagram pictures right from your phone and account, but I wanted a lot of photos and it was going to be spendy. Print Studio will print 48 small Instagram photos for $15. Not a horrible price, but when I want 80 photos, it adds up quickly.
Some, me being me, I did some research and found a way to get more for less! I used three programs and a coupon and slam-bam-thank-you-mam I have 80 prints for less than $20 coming my way.
Step One:First, I used Insaport to download my Instagram photos to my computer. You can choose your dates or amount of photos you want to download, then the program puts it into a cute, little zip file. Export your zip and then you are ready for part 2.
Step Two:For the second step in the process, I used PicMonkey to make a college of my downloaded pictures. I clicked on the collage feature and then choose a square of 4x4 images.
I made 5 collages and saved them to my desktop.
Step Three:And for the third, and final step in the process - I used Shutterfly. I choose Shutterfly because I needed a company that would print 8x8 inch photos. I have heard that Costco prints them, but I do not have a Costco membership.
In Shutterfly, you are going to choose the square prints option and design an 8x8 scrapbook page. You will choose the blank option and then upload your saved collage.
And for the coupon, I used the RetailMeNot app. I love the app and use it whenever I am shopping either in-store or online. If you don't you it, you should! I almost always find some deal and I don't have to do any coupon clipping.
So, all I have to do is cut up the collage and I will have the perfect size images to fit into my planner and bring me some extra joys on those busy weeks!
I am really excited about my Erin Condren Life Planner, I will have most posts up once I get into it more and show how I am incorporating it into my personal and blogging life.
