Preparing for our pregnancy announcement on Facebook, I had our son pose for “big brother” photos. I had a superhero theme in mind. My original photo plan didn’t turn out. Instead, I ended up with a couple shots that I liked even better. Love it when it works out like that.
The first awesome shot made a perfect banner for my Facebook page. I added the text “Every Superhero needs a sidekick. Mine is arriving October 2014” and posted along with a new profile picture of one of our first ultrasound images.
I then used a second photo from the day to create a Mother’s Day card design for both my mom and my mother-in-law. I cropped the picture in Photoshop and added the bottom blue box and text. Then uploaded to Treat for printing and shipping.
For the Mother’s Day cards, I used a full photo front option and deleted the text offered by Treat. Then wrote personalized notes inside of each card. To further simplify things, I had Treat do the shipping for me. All I did was request a delivery by last Friday to ensure they arrived on time. Both moms loved their cards. It really is an easy way to create a beautiful card even if you think you are creatively challenged and/or lack time.
I hope all of the moms (and moms at heart) had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday!
