Personalized Birth Announcement Art

As you know my favorite post of all times was the Name/Established Art. I have given these as gifts for teachers, weddings and any other occasion I can think of.
When my new nephew was born, I knew I had to make him one.  I knew I wanted to include some additional information on this, like his weight and the date and time he was born, so I put a black line to frame his name and put the date and time on the top left and his weight on the bottom right.   I blurred out the details but you get the idea :)

Here is what the draft image looked like. I created this before I had the exact details for him.

For instructions on how to make this and where to find the letters, see the Name/Est art post here.
I knew the frame I was going to purchase when I created the art, so I made the image to fit perfectly.  The image you see is approximately 15x7 inches but I had to create an image that was 18x12 inches for printing ($3.49 a Costco). (Update: I have been having a lot of questions as to how I am printing at Costco. I am not sure if Costco US is different from Costco Canada, but we can print photos in sizes up to 12x18 for an extremely reasonable price. After uploading the image, I can simply select the large size from the pull down menu. I am sorry I do not know how the US version works. If there isn't the exact size I want, I create a photo to the print size available and leave white space around the image. Then crop the paper once I get home. hope this helps.)

I purchased this frame at Ikea ($12.99) and my wonderful husband cut the mat so it held one photo as opposed to three small photos. He used a metal ruler and an Exacto knife and cut the mat on an angle. You really can't see where he removed the sections.
 I am really happy with how it turned out. What do you think?

Linking to the following amazing parties:

  16. Hello,
    When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.

  17. I noticed that you said you got the item printed at costco. How did you go about doing this, though?

    Love it! Trying to make these for christmas gifts this year (starting early). :)


  18. What program did you use to create the baby name art? Do you have a template that you can share? I would love to do this for my friend's baby due later this year.
