Today I’m excited to share a fun freebie for creatives, bloggers, Instagrammers and small businesses. Good images are a key part of putting together great visual content for your website, promo material or blog posts. But finding images to use can sometimes be difficult. If you’re not using strong, quality photos, you could be losing potential readers, clients and customers. Not to worry, I’ve got you covered.

If you’re looking for professional, feminine styled stock photos, you’ve come to the right place. Perhaps you haven’t heard of “styled stock photos” before – it’s a term used to describe stock photos that have been organized to capture a particular look and feel. Usually, these are photos of desktops with various business, tech and lifestyle objects laid out together. Photos of objects taken from directly above are called “flat lay photos”. Flat lays are super trendy and all the rage these days, especially on Instagram.

I love fooling around and experimenting with photos so this was a fun little photo shoot for me. These styled photos are my gift to you. They’re versatile and can be used for so many things including social media headers, banner, blog post images, sidebar and website banners, mock-ups, text overlays, desktop wallpapers and more.

I’d love to see what amazing things you do with these photos. Email, facebook or hashtag your photos with #dabblesandbabbles on Instagram or Twitter and I’ll post your images on my social media accounts.

Download your free styled desktop photos here. Do whatever you’d like with these photos. Photos are logo free and not watermarked. Photos are 1200 px wide.

15 Instagram Accounts to Inspire Your Creativity

| Crafts & DIY, Design & Technology

15 Instagram Accounts to Inspire Your Creativity - consider these must-follow Instagram accounts to inspire your creativity.15 Instagram Accounts to Inspire Your Creativity

I know what you’re thinking…savvy, tech and design loving blogger must have her finger on the pulse of all the latest social media platforms. While I’m flattered by this, I have to be completely open and admit that I’ve been dragging my feet a little on a couple (OK, maybe a few) social media platforms – mainly Twitter and Instagram. But, since one of my goals for 2016 is to broaden my knowledge of social media, I recently decided to give up my unfounded disinterest and dive right in.

Why follow Instagram?

While I’m still trying to sort out Twitter (sensory overload) I’m totally digging Instagram. With over 80 million photos uploaded to Instagram every day, there’s a virtual smorgasbord board of creative geniuses to peruse. What’s not to like? It’s all about photos (one of my favorite forms of creativity); you get to be a bit of a voyeur into other people’s lives and, it’s where “all the kids hang” (you know it’s good if kids like it). Also, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out… Instagram is fabulous for businesses, entrepreneurs, and marketers – it’s the easiest way to humanize their brands and make them feel relatable!

Since my foray into the world of Instagram, I’ve become enamored with so many amazing Instagrammers (correct terminology?). There are some pretty amazing people in this world, that’s all I can say. I am astounded by the unending, deep vein of creativity that seems to run through so many talented people.

So why chose 15 Instagram Accounts to follow? Well, my list was only supposed to be 10 amazing Instagrammers but I couldn’t narrow it down… so 15 it is. I’ve tried to cover a lot of creative topics so there’s something for everybody. Be prepared to get your creative juices flowing (hope you can spare the next 2-4 hours – it’s a vortex I tell ya).
