CREATING A FOOD JOURNAL WITH THE INSTAX SHARE PRINTER + THE LAUNCH OF THE SP-2!
By Kelly Purkey
Last week I had the awesome opportunity to work with Fujfilm on the launch party of their new Instax SHARE SP-2 Printer. I’ve been an Instax fan for years + years now and you’ve seen them included in lots of projects and posts here on the blog. So it was really exciting to get to work together in New York City at the party for the upcoming version of their SHARE SP-2 printer. If you’re not familiar with the SHARE, it’s a great little printer that uses the Instax instant film and prints photos right from your smartphone.
The SP-2 printer is even better than ever with filters you can add to the photos, prints even faster, and my favorite update is that you adjust the brightness + contrast before you print out your photo. Plus it comes in gold or silver in this sleek new style. You can find more info and preorder the Instax SHARE SP-2 here.
The hostess of the launch party was celeb chef Alex Guarnaschelli who is so talented and hilarious. To go along with her food, I put together a food journal using the SHARE photos. If you know me at all, you know my passion for good food so this job was right up my alley.
My food journal is a little binder that you can easily put together to document all your own food memories. Everything you need you already have on hand – scraps of paper, envelopes, sticky notes, and a hole punch. I trimmed the paper and envelopes to different sizes so the pages peek through as you flip through the journal. Lots and lots of Instax photos scattered throughout along with notes, recipes, and little bits about the food.
The journal took me under two hours to put together and it’s fun to flip through. One of my favorite things about the SHARE printer is that you can print multiple copies of the photos (verses only having one copy when you use the camera) so you can add your photos to many different projects. I hope this gives you inspiration to create your own food journal using your favorite Instax photos and don’t forget to check out the new SHARE SP-2 printer!
