I'm taking the dive head first into Project Life! I have my blush kit from HSN and am ready to go! I'm headed to the store to pick up my Selphy today but have no idea what I need to go with it... I don't know anything about it really other than knowing that a lot of Peas love theirs! Can you help me out?

I purchased the Selpy on HSN a month or two ago. It was a great little machine but I didn't like that it wasnt a true 4x6. The quality was good, the wifi access is a bonus. But it was not practical enough for me due to the cost of the ink/paper (all in one set) and since my HP printer is wifi, I keep 4x6 photo paper in my machine at all times and I can print from anywhere using ePrint (meaning my HP printer has an email). But the Selphy is a great little device. It was an impulse buy for which I immediately came back to reality and returned to HSN.

What do you need? Absolutely nothing unless you want to pick up more paper/ink because the small amount that comes with is only like 5-10 photos.

Thanks for the info! Very helpful! If I go through with it I'll pick up extra paper and ink. I have a 3 in 1 printer that doesn't print nice photos so I figured the Selphy would be good for pics and I can travel with it. It isn't too big for that right? I didn't know that it doesn't print true 4x6 photos though. What size are they really? Maybe I need to give this more thought!

Anyone else have any input?

I'm in with my little Selphy! I usually order the ink and paper set from amazon. You will love it!

I love my selphy and the first think you need is more ink and paper. It comes with a very small amount.

I use it to do weekly layouts, not project life but current layouts and for project life (when I finally start it.) If there are a bunch of pictures 30 or more, I do a walgreens/snapfish purchase.

I really love how you can print different size photos, and change the color of the photos and I agree lots of paper and ink is all you need.
