This little printer changed my scrapbooking life. A few days back, over on instagram, I had a few questions about how I printed the photos in this Project Life spread. I started extolling the virtues of my Canon Selphy printer. I LOVE THIS THING. I love that I can pick up my phone and print out all my photos — in whatever size I need — and start scrapbooking right away.
I picked up the Selphy c900 on Amazon a few months ago. I had been hearing rave reviews for more than a year, but I was hesitant to buy another gadget that wouldn’t live up to the hype. It has quickly become one of my absolute must-haves.
I print directly from my iPhone to the printer — which saves me so much time, and that saved time goes directly into Project Life and other memory-keeping projects. This printer has become the key to how I keep up with any project with a time frame, and I know it’ll be especially useful for my December Daily album.
One more reason I love the printer — the paper & ink comes together in a package, so it’s easy to calculate cost per print. My cost per print has been around 30 cents for a 4×6. I usually use 3-5 4×6 prints for a project life spread — keeping my cost per spread around $1.
Here’s a quick tutorial to using the PicFrame iPhone app and the Selphy app (Canon iEPP) to print out a photo collage directly from your phone.
Pick up the Canon Selphy on Amazon — Pictures are only $.30 a print.
Print your pictures whenever you need them and keep up with all your memory-keeping projects.
