Christmas in October- Free Printable - Be Yourself Everyone Else is Already Taken

Over the next couple of weeks I plan to make a lot of framed quotes for Christmas gifts. I really like the idea of finding a quote that matches the person I am giving it to and since I can make these for next to nothing, I plan to add one to almost every gift I give.

I received such amazing feedback from the last image I shared here for Grandmothers, I will share all the others with you as well. You can download them for free (as long as you use them for personal use only) and print them off as gifts too. Frames can be bought at the Dollar Store, so you too can have a gift for under $2!

I found this quote by Oscar Wilde and immediately thought of my nieces and daughter. I remembered when I was young and struggling with who I was and how I should act. So I thought this would be a nice reminder for the girls to be themselves.
Here are the fonts I used in case you would like to find them:
  • Be and Else is Already -  Ashley font
  • Yourself  and Taken- Algerian font
  • Everyone and Oscar Wilde- Rosewood Std Regular
I created this with Publisher as both a 5x7 and an 8x10 image. I think I will give the girls 5x7s to my nieces so they can put it their bedrooms without it seeming too large, but since I made both sized I thought I would share both options.

Here is the 5x7

 Here is the 8x10

To download the image:
  • leave me a comment :) (not required but I really do love to know what you think)
  • right click on the size you want and select open in a new window or tab
  • on the full size image, right click again and select save as
  • save it to a place on your computer where you can easily find it
  • send it to your favorite photo developer, find a frame and you can cross one Christmas gift off your list.
UPDATE: I have added a few images with more masculine colors below in case any of you want this for nephews or sons or it just fits your decor better.
5x7 images


8x10 images
 

I would love your feedback about what you think of this and who you would like to give it to. If you would like other colors, leave me a comment and I can see what I can throw together?

How is your Christmas planning coming along? I am working towards a home made gift Christmas and am loving it!

Have a great day!
Stephanie

    1. Hi Brittany,
      I personally love Costco for printing. A friend of mine is a professional photographer and he uses it to print his pieces too. I have used Walmart before but I don't like their color as much.
      Sorry I am not much help,
      Stephanie

  3. I love these sorts of things -- I use them for inexpensive decor around my house. I think a nice print of this one in pretty white frame will go in my master bath!

    Thank you for the idea!
