Diva On A Budget: Personalized Picture Gifts from ArtsCow

I'm not quite sure how I heard about ArtsCow.  I do remember though that it was the first place I found with decently priced stretched photo canvases.  I really wanted to order some wedding photos on canvas and didn't want to pay $80 for just one.  ArtsCow has crazy awesome prices on all sizes of stretched and unstretched canvases.

My first order was back in January when I ordered an 8x10 wedding photo and a 6x6 picture of one of my dogs on stretched canvas.  The 8x10 was only $13.99 and the 6x6 was $9.99.  But I hadn't thought about shipping when I ordered.  The shipping is pretty crazy sometimes.  Shipping cost me $17 for that order.

BUT THEN I started getting emails about sales they had going on.  They have FREE SHIPPING on things all the time!  That is the time to get things for sure!

My second order was a mini coin purse and two 5x7 stretched canvases.  (All of that was only $15)

This is the coin purse.  I did a wedding photo on the front and a picture from our honeymoon in Maui on the back.  The pictures turned out really well and this little gem holds quite a lot.

Here are the two 5x7s I ordered.  They look really great!  I had just opened the package, so the plastic wrapping you see comes off.  They have a nice matte finish.

My third order was a deal for 3 cosmetic bags of any size for only $8.00 + free shipping!  I made a few bags and just received them in the mail.  They are lined like the mini coin purse and they have a little zippered pocket on the inside.  Because I ordered two of the extra-large size and one of the large, I saved almost $50 using the coupon.
Large size. It is 9 inches by 6 inches.  I did a picture of Diamond Head I took in Honolulu and a picture of us at a luau on the front.

On the back are two pictures from the top of Haleakala.

Extra-large size.  It is 8 inches by 10 inches.  I made a wedding photo one as well.  With this one, I really started utilizing the background images, fonts, and layout options.  

With this one, I just put a couple of the New Kids photos I took during my concerts.  They look really great on the fabric. Very clear.
