Mini Album Monday | iPhone Pictures

I hope you all had a great weekend. Today, I’m sharing a new mini album. Do you have a smart phone that is capable of taking pictures? I have an iPhone 4 and have been taking photos with it along with my previous iPhone 3G for almost four years now, so I have a lot of pictures. So, what do you do with yours? I thought that it would be great to put the photos in a mini album for a particular time period. It could be monthly or by occasion. I simply named this album by year, but I’m sure I may make another one before the year is over. These are the photos that really do not belong to any category or event, but just a hodge podge of pictures.

Since the photo collection is such a hodge podge, I decided to start my album with a Jenni Bowlin Hodge Podge album kit. The kit included the cover, large bingo card (Look), seed packet, acetate book print die cut page, printed cardboard page, and two metal rings. To extend the album, I added a few more pages and use a lot of various products. Instead of linking all of the products, I will refer to them in a list below because some may not necessarily be current, but you may can still locate them on clearance.

If you have an iPhone or even an iPod, I’ll share a few of my favorite photography related apps that I use.

*Please Note: If you are reading this post on Google Reader or via E-Mail, I apologize for the multiple photos; however, they are embedded into a great gallery on my blog if you would rather view them that way too!:)

I love this new series you’re doing, Ashley! What an adorable mini album! Great way to use those iPhone pictures. I’ve been on the hunt for a great small travel printer that works with the iPhone but I haven’t been able to find one. I don’t think Apple is compatible with any of the new ones on the market. Are you aware of any?

That is just so lovely. I do not take pictures with my phone – it does take pics but I usually have my digital camera with me and use that.

thanks for showing this idea. I love it.

Doesn’t the iPhone 4 take fab photos? My camera was confiscated by the police in July because I took photos of an accident and they said the camera was evidence. I don’t know if I’ll ever get it back so I’m really glad my iPhone works for me. I email myself my photos after I take them but I’m wondering if I could take them of my phone using my charger. I’ll have to check that out. Fabulous mini album by the way.

Very interesting idea for an album! I do take photos with my smart phone but they are mostly ones that I don’t care to keep. If I see something in a store that I’d like to share with my family before purchasing or if I’m searching for something I might put it on my phone photos to help me find it.
However I did take a photo of my daughter’s mural and I couldn’t find it on any of our digi camera (we have 4 on the go) and it turned up on my smart phone! So it does not hurt to go through these phone photos once in a while and see if there are any “keepers” to scrapbook or back up!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!

Love what you’ve done, and as before I think “one of these days…” and your mini albums always inspire me, but I’ll have to put my words in to paper.

Fun! And you said you didn’t have anything to share for Week In The Life!… Well I beg to differ, ma’am! ;) Now you make me want to break out my scraps, lol! Fun stuff!

Wow Ashley, I just love your mini albums, and this one is no exception. Love how you embellish!

Sara SpencerOctober 11, 2011 - 12:14 pm

This is so neat! I love every single page. As an amateur photographer my iPhone4 has become my primary camera. I just always forget my regular one so this one has become priceless because it helps me save memories of my little boys. I’m just taking a class from Reneepearson.com to learn how to use it better too! Totally fun. I’ll take your mini album idea with me. =)
