Giveaway: My First Silhouette

There is nothing more memorable then the first ultrasound appointment when you finally get a glance of your baby. A tiny person with fingers and toes, hands and feet, lips and ears. It’s nothing short of amazing. Of course it is nice to take home the little black and white photo from the doctor’s office, but how great would it be to preserve such a beautiful moment by artfully capturing that image? Our friends at My First Silhouette have made it possible to forever cherish this timeless treasure into a priceless, original piece of art.



My First Silhouette offers two options, print or canvas. The paper giclee prints are created using high quality paper and archival ink and can be beautifully matted and framed. The “gallery wrapped” canvas prints are water and crack resistant and can be hung on their own or framed.  Just send them a digital file via e-mail or mail them a copy of one of your ultrasounds, select your color combination, text and size. You will then receive a proof and in about one month your beautiful print will arrive ready to be displayed for everyone to see…it’s that easy. This beautiful keepsake makes a perfect shower gift or baby arrival gift for all to enjoy.


Oh…and did I mention?  I just received my very own canvas today…much thanks to My First Silhouette.  What a treasure!  I absolutely love my gallery wrapped canvas and the quality is top-notch.  I could not be more pleased with this made-for-me masterpiece!

Win It! My First Silhouette is giving away one 8” x 10” Gallery Wrapped Canvas ($80 value) to a lucky Project Nursery reader! Visit My First Silhouette and comment back with your thoughts on this uniquely personalized wall art!

    OMG! Love it! Was looking for a picture of our baby to put in canvas and hang above our fireplace to go with our wedding picture in canvas, NEVER thought to do an ultrasound pic! This would clear some space on our fridge :). What a great idea!!!!

    Beatiful room!! I really love how you decorated your baby room and wondered if there would be anyway to find out how you painted the tree design? Did you have it profesionally painted or were you able to use a stencil. I was hoping to design a baby room similarily and would love any feedback if possible. Thank you, Heather

  11. avatar Lucy Shey says:

    Really enjoyed reading this post. I’m getting a lot of good ideas on how to decorate my baby boy’s room from your blog. I’m leaning towards buying a pink and brown baby bedding crib set. My due date is January 18th, so there’s still a little time for me to make up my mind. Hope it’s ok that I share this post on Facebook?

  12. The room looks really great. Good idea.

  13. avatar Heidi says:

    This is an absolute great idea!! I have never seen anything like this before and would love to win one of my own :)! This would also make a very cool baby shower gift idea!

    This is so original and inspiring. My fridge is cluttered with a myriad of ultrasound pictures–and I’m told they fade over time. What a clever way to keep the image forever!!
