iphone 5, instagram and project life

Is it weird that I don't even have an iphone and somehow I have this mild obsession with Instagram?  My darling husband "conveniently" cracked his blackberry screen and "conveniently" upgraded to an iphone one day.  Whatever.  I took the the liberty of snatching that thing right up and downloading all sorts of fun aps for him.  :)  He will thank me later.  It has come in handy when I don't have my DSLR with me.  I'm sure it will wear off, but at the moment, I can't get enough of these cute little retro, square, charming pictures.  Love, Love, Love.

Now when is that iphone 5 coming out???  I've heard rumors that it might be late September, but I've also heard October 21.  My upgrade is next week, but if the iphone 5 will be out in the next month, I'd rather have the "latest and greatest".  Anyone know?????

Ah are some of my Dan's favorite instagram shots:

I would love to incorporate these darling little pictures in my project life album {or other projects} so I did some googling.  Is that a verb?  It should be, because I do it often.  Here's what I found:

1.) PSE Action that makes your instagram photo printable as a 4x6 in one easy step: click here

2. )Template to print your own journaling cards with instagram photos on them: click here
Simple Journalers Pack 1

3.)  Free template from designer Cathy Zielske:  click here

4.) More templates from czdesign:  click here   
Cathy Zielske Layered Template 87

and click here  (and it looks like they are on sale!)
Cathy zielske Layered Template 88

5.)  I think this business card holder mini album is just too stinkin cute!  I'm going to have to try this one!  (you know...once I get my iphone!)  click here

These are just a few of the ideas I found tonight.  So many clever people out there, I tell ya!  If any of you PL-ers have been using your instagrams in your album, can you please share???? :)  I would love to see how  they are being used!!

Instagram is the greatest - I too am a bit addicted. I am sure you have all the other great apps(Camera+, etc.). You need to check out PostalPix - you can order your instagram pics as 4x4 or 5x5 and add them in your PL album that way (or just order whereever you order your regular prints from). Just add the squares as extra photos. Or sometimes I just print them to fit in the journal card slot (sometimes you lose some of the framed edge but it works great). Congrats on the race, great pictures! I love your PL album and can't wait to see your next update. Have a great weekend, Brandi

First of all, your blog is beautiful! Your work is just absolutely amazing. Congrats on your run. I love your PL album. I am working on one as well but I am so far behind it's not funny. I am hoping to post more pics soon. Can't wait to see other pages from your album. :)

my iphone photography apps are:

camera + pro (good on phone editing)
instagram (good filters)
dramatic B&W
diptic (to make collages)

Ok Sara, I downloaded the first action you mentioned in order to turn the Instagram photo into a 4x6, but how the heck do you load it into PSE to be able to use it??
