tropical instax | wood photo stand
It is always so much fun to launch a new collection with Heidi Swapp. And the new Tropical Instax is no exception.
This week here at HeidiSwapp.com you have been privy to members of the Media Team showing off some of their fav pieces from this new Instax collection. And here today I am going to do the same.
One of my favorite pieces is the Wood Photo Stand. This stand is a great addition to a desktop or table. It’s a fun way to show off your fav Instax prints. It really appeals to me that I can place my favorite prints in this stand and change them out whenever I choose. I’m thinking that would be the insta part. I’m quick like that.
Here is a look at how I used the Wood Photo Stand and prints and accessories to create this desktop display.
The stand comes in plain wood. The collection is called Tropical Instax and definitely has an awesome beach and vacation vibe. The stand could be kept plain to fit the style of all things tropical. But I chose to paint mine first as I wanted it to match my workspace.
Using Deco Art Metallics in Champagne, I did just that. It helped to prime the stand first. After that was dry I just brushed on the Champagne paint and let it dry. It gave me the touch of glam that I was hoping for.
The Wood Stand Kit includes a few Instax size frames. I opted to use the Instax Filler Pack in Gold instead.
The pack is filled with 66 pieces that include frames and word cards as well as journal spots, plus prompt and quote stickers. This pack goes perfect with the gold, black and white theme I have going on here in my space.
Now it’s time to just have a little bit of fun. To create this desktop display I am using the Filler Pack, Instax prints, and the Wood Stand to put this all together.
The frames from the Filler Pack sit easily in the Wood Photo Stand. Here I placed one of the clear stickers behind a frame and set it in the stand. I like adding these non-photo images to this display.
Next addition was an Instax print in a gold frame.
Most often I use the Instax Share Printer to create these projects. My photos are usually taken with my phone. I just use the Instax app with the printer to make these images into fun Instax size.
The next addition to my Photo Stand was a photo without a frame. It’s just printed, and then one of the stickers from the Gold Filler Pack is placed on the photo. Pretty much does not get any easier than printing a photo and placing an embellishment right on the image.
The stand will easily hold up to about six Instax prints. I chose to have four on there for now. The last photo was changed to black and white in the Instax app. I added the clear ‘together’ sticker to my daughter and one of her best friends picture from prom. I love these photos and adore having them on my workspace like this.
And that’s just one way to add Instax prints to your desk or workspace. Keeping it simple I think allows the photos and all the feelings that go with those photos to shine. I love this gathering of images and will be hard pressed to switch them out.
So choose a new Instax display from the Tropical Instax Collection. Print or take photos. Embellish with frames or stickers. And enjoy the photo display on your desk.
Tropical Instax Collection will be available at Michaels Stores.
