Gifts with Photos


I don't know if it's the digital scrapbook in me but I love making gifts that include photos. Since it's almost that time of year I thought I would share a few ideas for photo gifts.


I saw this on the Persnickety Blog a couple of weeks ago, and I instantly fell in love (no pun intended...well, maybe). These would make such a fun gift. There's even a free download for the template. Just put in your photos and order your calendar!
I just received a little Shutterfly flyer in the mail this week, and I browsed through it to see if there might be any gifts I could make for family members. The notebook, I-phone cases and little note pad stood out to me. I'm tempted to get the notebook myself. They have a lot of other photo gifts but those were my faves. 


 Isn't the notepad so cute?
This is actually a gift I made last year (with the help of my SIL and sister). My SIL had seen this idea on pinterest, and we thought it would be perfect for Grandma. Make a t-shirt with a number for each of the grandchildren (each color represents one family), line them up and take a picture. It sounds so simple doesn't it? Well, with 11 kids you can imagine how much work it took to get this photo! I also took individual pics of each of the sets of grandchildren, and then I framed those along with this shot. It ended up being really cute, and my mom loved it.


Two years ago I made some poster prints for a few family members. Here's one of the posters. Click the photo to read more about how I made them.


Here is the template set I made to make the above poster. Make sure you check out my store to see the other poster templates I offer.


Hopefully this will give you some ideas for Christmas this year.

I love the calendar poster idea, do you have it available for 2014 dates? Or know of somewhere to make cute little calendar dates? Thanks for sharing the great ideas.

Oh my goodness. I didn't even think about the calendar needing to be updated! I need to work on that.

I NEED the poster calendar with 2014 dates. :) I'm ready to purchase. I LOVE this idea for several of my family members.

I wanted them for 2014 so I could make it tonight too GingerScraps.

I'm so sorry!!! I'm not going to have time to get this complete before 2014. I'll take a look around to see if there are some 2014 png calendars that might work with my template.

I just found these free 2014 PNG calendars. I tested them out on my poster templates and they work great. You have to resize them just a bit but they look good on the templates.

Hope that helps!
Again, I'm so sorry I haven't got a new set of 2014 grids.
