I love this frame. I think it’s the perfect gift for
a new mama. It would make a super stylish baby shower gift too – as it lasts well beyond the new baby stage and plus it’s unisex (always a bonus.)

This is definitely a gift that won’t get forgotten in the sea of double-up baby-grows, blankets and soft toys – and will be appreciated for many years to come.

I particularly liked this one because it’s not too big and the portrait style picture slots are easy to mount a decent image that show enough of babies growth and of course, their outfit!

Basically, the frame has spaces for 13 pictures – one for each month including a double up of their birth and first
birthday month.

I planned from the very beginning (with a little help from my sister) what Miss Marnie’s monthly pose would be – we tried to theme
it depending on any special monthly occasions (so Halloween for October, Valentine’s in February, Easter in March or April etc.)

I also tried to show some of Miss Marnie’s first milestones – so, her first day at beach was placed in the July month for example. The frame now hangs proudly in
her nursery – and often I have to stop and stare as I can’t believe how much she has changed with each passing month.

P.S. I used the Diptic app to get the perfect sized image. It’s a photographic app that lets you create photo collages with ease.

There’s one that fits 6 x portrait style picts on one print (then once cut-out they fit the frames perfectly!)

    This photoframe is gorgeous. Documenting each month of a babies first year would be a fantastic idea. Thank you for sharing.

    Those are all very cute & neat! I love to do gift baskets! A great grandma one (since they have everything) is "Glad Tidings of Great Joy!" packed with useful Glad storage bags, Tide, & Joy dishwashing liquid…just thought I'd share!
