How to DIY Decorate photo into Polaroid | My Diary , Planner & Traveler's Note (#3)

28 September 2014

Ohayoooo my little sweeties  Time passes so fast! It's Sunday again hopefully no Monday blues tomorrow. Quite busy this few days as you know I'm always busy at the end of the month. Have to draft all my post and modelling for my friend's boutique this few days. Before that I'm half done with my Diary / Planner post and guess I should share and update this today. Since today = SUNDAY! It's the best time to do some doodle and journalising on my happiedori and midori traveler's notebook. 

So yea before that I would love to share some of the cute stuff I bought from Babe Daph's personal shopper online instagram shop (@walkinjapan_com) I received it yesterday and it took me 5 working days to receive it all the way from Japan. I blog about it before about my Snacks Haul from Japan (click here) Not being kidding I spent more than what I expected and now I'm broke because of that. Luckily the price was reasonable but I can't wait for my Japan Trip next year!!

 I didn't buy anything last month because Bebe used too much of my money so I have to stop myself craving for Japanese Snacks and this month I kind of missing it...So I bought from her shop again. lol But the main one was the twinny star mini 2015 planner. It was so cute and small. At first I want to purchase the normal size one because normal size more worth for the price but I thought why not I put the 2015 planner inside my happiedori. So end up I bought the super duper small size one for it to fit into my happiedori.

I bought one pack of Halloween Kit Kat (Limited Edition) & the yummy Little Baum Trees recommended by Daph. Except that I also bought myself two tube bra from peach john because it's not available in Malaysia so I have to order it all the way from Japan. Thanks daph it successfully reached my doorstep and hopefully you are reading my post now :p Okay lahh..I text you later! Blogging first!! AHHAHAAHA

Because I'm too excited for the parcel so I have to do some drawing on my TN. So sorry I'm really not a pro in art so what can I do is just simply doodle and adding some of the watercolor to make it look nicer. But seems so fail loh -.- 

It's okay for that I will make sure my doodle look nicer next time. So back to the topic, since everyone of you start questioning about the photo that I posted on my insta I'm here to talk about it. Lol some of you feel so surprise with the polaroid photo I used to stick on my TN. Actually, it's all about decoration with polaroid stickers.

I explained it but some of you thought I don't get what you mean so you repeat asking the same thing again & again. To make it clear it's better to show you HOW TO...deco it and make your boring photo look like a polaroid. So first you need to print the photo out from your phone or lap top. I always use to print my photo in those printing shop because I don't have photo printer. Too much wish list and my birthday coming soon 20/10 I think I have to stop spending too much since I want to make a dessert table and invite my friends for a lovely dinner!

If you have a smaller photo in 1x1 square you probably have to cut it and make a small adjustment for the stickers size. If not you just have to stick the polaroid sticker side by side above your photo then TAAA~DAAAAA!! Your polaroid alike photo appear! lol

 For those who printed your 1x1 square photo you just have to get a polaroid sticker then cut it on the side like this 

 No need to be perfect just cut it then stick the bottom part first

 Lastly, stick the top part above your bottom part sticker. This required 0 skill and 0 knowledge. Just as simple as that! HAHAAHAH

I used this when I want to stick my photo inside my diary or planner. But you know I always wanted to print every photo with polaroid film but you know polaroid film and printer was just ...pricy! For my kiam-siap personality I think it's better just DIY with it and it's just as simple as a piece of cake! Am I right? After I tried it I'm loving it because it make my diary and TN look nicer and more attractive.

Can't live without my planner now!

Plus, did you realise that I'm so efficient? I update my blog more frequent and I share more stuff on my blog. My blog me right now! HAHAHAHAH Follow the plan and everything = well manage and blog post always up on time! It means that I have more time to blog about my interest and share more thing to you!

Oh well, if you want I strongly recommend you to get one planner for yourself. I'm so happy that everything run smoothly after I start utilise my planner and schedule my day every night. To be honest, I realise that I have the symptom of Obsessive–compulsive disorder (強迫症) I short-form it to OCD! I must stay and follow all the rules stated by myself. If i never follow it I can't sleep or really worry for something.

For example, I'm really in love with happiedori or any washi tape. If I bought one I won't use it but if I use it I worry I can't get it next time when it finish. So every time I will have to buy 2 item that totally same or diff colour. One for me to use and another to keep!

 Next for the instagram photo I must sort it in order. When I upload 1 in morning I must do the same for afternoon and night with same colour tone or event that happen in the same day. Lastly, for my blog post I have to make sure all 1x1 square photo to be in 600x600 size. If not I don't have the mood to blog. lol slap me pls!

Everytime I tend to think too much and worry too much for the future -.- damn! Oh yea! Since I wanna make my post to be perfectly suit my post topic let me show you some of my TN personal diary.
