It is getting harder for me to post Christmas ideas here on Full of Great Ideas because my family has been known to visit my blog to see what I have been up to. Well, I hope my stern warnings a few weeks ago will be listened to, otherwise there will be no surprises on Christmas day.
I recently saw a wood plaque with the saying “The only thing better than having you for a Mom is my children having you for a Grandma.” I pinned it thinking I love the saying and could make something with vinyl cut with my Cricut. After I spent an hour trying to design it I grew more and more frustrated and thought there had to be a better (i.e. easier) way.
So I went back to my favorite program, Microsoft Publisher, to design the quote. Here is what I came up with.
In case you are curious the following are the free fonts I used to make this:
- The only thing - Alex Brush font
- Better than – Gabriola font
- Having you for a -Before the rain font
- Mom- JT Hidden Vines font
- Is out children-Mutlu font
- Having you for a- Janda Elegant Handwriting font
- Grandma- JT Hidden Vines font
To download the file, first leave me a comment (not required but I love the feedback), right click on the image you like and open in a new window. Once open, right click on it again and select ‘Save as’. Save it to a place you will remember. Then send the JPEG to your favorite photo printer! As my kids say...Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. I have uploaded a high resolution image that is large enough to be printed as an 8x10. It might print clearly as a larger image but I have not tested it out.
I hate saying it, but please use this only for personal use. I don’t sell the items I make (this would probably cost $15ish on Etsy) but that doesn’t mean I want someone else to sell it either :)
So here are all the images you can download.Here is the one for Grandmas:
For all you Dutch (like me) and German kids out there, here is an Oma one:
UPDATE: As requested Mamaw
I hope some of you can save a few dollars this Christmas with this frugal gift idea. I honestly believe you could print and frame this for around $10. Really you could do it for $3 if you buy a Dollar Store frame and spend $2 to print it. Not a bad price for a cute Christmas gift.
Let me know what you think,
