Custom Silhouettes

A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated Mammy’s birthday.

For her gift, I made a custom silhouette of Alston.

I snapped this picture of him while he was watching tv one morning. (It was taken in October of 2010 so its a perfect way to mark his second birthday.) Then used Photoshop to trace his profile which I filled in with black. There are alot of great tutorials on how to make real silhouettes, like this one using fabric. As a graphic designer, I prefer to take the shortcut where I can easily undo my mistakes.

After I created the silhouette, I printed a 5×7 of the image on cardstock and put it in this gorgeous frame I found at Home Goods.

Needless to say, she loved it.
And we had a great time celebrating her birthday with chocolate pound cake and lots of silliness… like this little boy who climbed inside the fridge to hide.

Daddy’s Day

Father’s Day is getting pretty close, so if you haven’t picked up a card yet, you should definitely think about creating a personalized card at Tiny Prints. All Father’s Day cards are only 99¢ with free shipping! Their designs are way cuter than any you’d find in stores and you can add your own pictures and message. Ugly cards at the big bix stores can cost anywhere between $3 – $5. That is outrageous.
