happy father’s day!

The kids and I were so excited with the present we made for my husband, Dad and father-in-law this year. Check out how cute these turned out.

First I took a picture of each kid holding a blank chalkboard. The reason we left it blank was two-fold: I like the neatness that comes along with a font and we were planning on making these for three individuals, so it saved the time of washing and drying the board between each use. Bonus: I am thinking about making a scrapbook page with these too, maybe with a funny saying from each kid or a few favorites.

Then I chose a chalkboard-looking font to Photoshop-in the reasons each kid gave me (Give them the “We love you because…” prompt and see what they say). There are tons of fonts out there. I used this one by Kimberly Geswein and just love the way it looked on the boards. Check out her fonts ~ they’re awesome!

I created an 11×14 canvas, arranged the pictures plus a text block and just swapped-out the chalkboard text and who it was to on each copy. Then I left a thin white border before my lab printed them which worked out perfectly with the thick wooden frames we used.

Here’s the copy we gave my husband.

Cute huh?

Another cute treat we made for my Dad: an ‘edible’ candy card!

Hope you’re having a great day dads!
