GIVEAWAY: Canvaspop Framed Print

I’ve been trying to step up my framed photo game. My sister-in-law recently finished decorating her new house and she has amazing family photos everywhere. My house felt bare in comparison. Just as I was contemplating a few new photos for my walls, I got an email from Canvaspop offering me a HUGE framed photo. Yes, please.

It’s my policy to only write about things I really love, and my Canvaspop framed family photo certainly fits in this category. Not only was it really easy to upload my photo (you can even use iPhone photos) and select my frame, but I also got a digital proof to make sure it was going to look how I wanted. When my framed print arrived, I was really impressed. On the website, it says that the print is framed behind “a crystal clear, low-glare plexiglass insert”--this made me nervous. I thought it might look dull or cheap, but it looks exactly like glass.

My Canvaspop framed print. Doesn't it look great?!

These framed prints are perfect for showcasing that family photo session you finally got around to doing, or even your favorite artsy vacation photos. They come in sizes from 8”x10” to 40”x30” (my print is 16”x20”).


Canvaspop didn’t just want to give me a framed print, they want to give you one too! We are giving away a framed 16”x20” print with a 2.5” mat and free shipping (a $214 value!). To enter:

And if you can’t wait for the giveaway to end, or maybe you want a different size print (or a canvas print) you can get 35% off using the code MOMMYBETA35 (coupon expires August 30th). 

FULL DISCLOSURE: I received a free framed print from Canvaspop, but the opinions in this post are my own.

I'm a sucker for cute shipping boxes.



My Favorite Piece Of Artwork


My favorite wall art in our home is this piece - the framed birth announcements of my two children. 

Even though my children were born two years apart, I used the same birth announcement template on Shutterfly, although obviously one is blue and the other pink. I absolutely cherish these announcements so I wanted to do something special with them. 

I took them to my local Michaels, where they always seem to have big promotions on framing. The woman in the framing department helped me pick out the mat and frame to match. It was not cheap, but it wasn't overly expensive. I estimate a little under $200 but well worth it to me. This hangs on the entrance to our family room and every time I pass it my heart melts just a little bit. Bless these babies of mine. 

What did you do with your children's birth announcements?
