polaroid saturdays- Summer

My little project – Polaroid Saturdays continues..

It has been a fun experience, but I’ve had a few speed bumps this summer that made it difficult.

Sadly the film has become rare and expensive. I ran out of it, purchased more bad film off ebay, and then was a bit disappointed in color shade & artistic film..

I was ready to give up, but the Impossible Project helped me out with a fresh new stack of good 600 film. Thank you IP!   I’m so happy about that. : )

I will be able to finish the year out and I can’t wait to make my scrapbook.

I simply love polaroid!

    This are so heartwarming and retro, Mandy….love. :) I have 3 Poloaroid cameras just waiting for film and I can’t wait to use them! Is the film from The Impossible Project really expensive? I’ll have to google it. Have a great new week, friend. Hugs!

    Thank you, You ladies are so sweet! Vicki, the film from the impossible project isn’t particularly expensive. It’s the original 600 film that is no longer in production that has become expensive off ebay. Fortunately the Impossible Project had a little bit of the original film left for me to purchase, because the newest attempts of theirs aren’t nearly as clear.

    These are fantastic! It’s amazing how they look 60 yeart old–the film color, the subjects, everything takes me back in time.

    I have that exact same polaroid camera I bought off ebay, but I have no idea what kind of polaroids it needs.. (or if it even works!) What kind do you use?? :)

    Hi Zoe, I actually use a black 600 polaroid camera most of the time.. it’s just not nearly as cute for pictures! Some of IP SX70 film is compatible for the camera pictured here.
