{ Some Baseboard, Trim & A Bit Of Photoshop = Wedding Gift }

My hubby's niece Brittany is getting married this Saturday the 18th and I've been scratching my head as to what to get them. For a long time now I've had a love of the Vintage Temple Pictures that you can buy. BUT my pocket book doesn't like the $160.00+ price tag these come with. 
SO I decided to do it myself.

 *We made the Frame out of Baseboard and some trim.

*The picture, I played around with in Lightroom & Photoshop then had printed at Costco in a 12x18.
*I painted it, then sanded down all the edges and hit it with some stain.

 Total price tag...... $28.00 people!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out. 
I see a few more of these on the horizon

FONTS THAT I USED:
For the name I used Hannibal Lecter. 
For the date I'm pretty sure I used Texas Hero.
Both, I'm sure I found free via the web..

  1. That looks fabulous! I love the chunky frame and your work on the picture looks great! I'm sure they will absolutely love it.

    Did you take the picture or did you play with a stock image?

  5. Rachel you did a beautiful job on this! I'm partial to the Logan Temple since I get to see this amazing view everyday but having it personalized will make it even more treasured for years to come! Merry Christmas!

  11. Good grief! You are amazing. My brother just got married and I still have not given them a gift. Can I pay you to make a jpg picture of the Arizona temple?

  12. I've never left a comment before, but this deserves a comment! In our ward a guy was just baptized and was talking about going to the church bookstore here in California to get some things. I stopped him right there (not that I don't want to support the local sales guy) but you can't be paying $300 for scriptures that really cost $30. We helped him out, but seriously... why are Mormon bookstores SO expensive?! You know we're all a bunch of cheap skates! Who buys that stuff?

    Alright, what I'm really trying to say is fantastic job and thanks for the inspiration!

    Is their last name Nott? That is my grandparent's last name, don't see it much!

  15. Love it. Can't believe you figured out how to do that yourself - I'm pretty crafty, but I don't think I could have tackled that...so yes, when you are setting up shop?? I'd be first in line (Salt Lake Temple!)

  17. etsy? Bet you could sell that baby!

  18. Just had to come back to look at this again. Yep, you need to sell these. I know that would be work for you, but I just don't think if I did that it would come out as well!

    Think about it;)

  20. Really, really great! You should put some in your etsy shop. I know they'd be a big hit. Have a wonderful Christmas with your cute little family. Mimi

  28. Oh my heck! I love that! I have been looking at the rexburg one for a while, but it is just too much! How did you nail it all together? I might just give it a try. Thanks for sharing! It really is beautiful!

  29. I'm back to see if you are selling these yet. Pretty please. I need one for my husband's office at church.

  30. I just found your blog........who knows how but I am now following you on Pinterest too! Since I just saw this post I am not sure if you sell these or share how you do them??? Just thinking they could be a really special gift for each of our married daughters but like you cannot afford the expensive ones!! So excited to check out all of your Pinterest boards! Thanks, Becky Stratford

  31. This is fabulous. I wish you shared how you adhered the pieces of molding together for the frame. I've been wanting to make my own frames for years but haven't figured out a really secure way to piece the corners together. Found you on interest, bytheway.

  32. Can I asked what font you used and where did you find it? I love La Grande my Brother-in-law is from there.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Could I pay you to do this to the San Diego Temple in photoshop? If you tell me the font, I could add it to it. Thanks for any help you can give. A tutorial perhaps? Many Thanks, I LOVE IT!!!

  34. Oh my heck soooo cute I love it!! I want to make one! I have a slight addiction with picture frames, its weird! and the weirdest thing happened the other day at church. I saw Brittany at church in my ward on sunday. And I knew I knew her but I didnt know how! I seriously havent seen her for like years and years! But I recognized her face from the family gatherings in LaGrand that we went to when I was like 6...if even that! So now I know that i'm not crazy and I know her and that we are related! I will have to talk to her next sunday! I'm not even sure she would recognize me, but we'll see!
