Snapbox Photo Canvas Review

Hello all, it's September, and apart from some small blips, it's still nice weather - I would be quite happy if it stayed around the 22 - 24 degree mark for the rest of the year. Perhaps that is a bit optimistic, but I have had the chance to get out in the garden and snap some pics of my favourite little people (that's Wilson and my nephew Joey). They may not belong to me, but they visit lots.

I was lucky enough to be invited to try out the Snapbox photo canvas service recently, which proved to be the ideal opportunity to finally get another digital photo printed, as I really am hopeless at actually printing out my memories.

Fresh Out The Box
The website is easy to navigate and gives you the option of either submitting a photo by email, or navigating through the upload and purchase process on the site. I chose the latter option preferring to do it all myself. I found the software really handy, as when you upload you can select different sizes from the drop down menu, and see a scaled down version of what your photo will look like - useful for deciding if a square or rectangle shaped canvas will be better.

There are 5 different sizes you can choose from - with dimensions including the stretched gallery wrapped canvas, and the real wood box floater frame that each canvas is mounted on. Prices start at £13.99 for a 13 by 13cm canvas, and go up to £34.99 for a 25 by 33 cm version (including VAT).

I played around and finally decided on my chosen photo and size, (another plus point - it's easy to change the pictures and play around with different options) From then my check out process was easy - and then it was a case of waiting for the postman. My order went in on the 22nd and arrived the day after bank holiday so I have no complaints about delivery, or the packaging. My canvas arrived in a plastic bag, shrink wrapped to a cardboard holder and enclosed in a big box.

Waiting To Be Hung On The Wall!

The finished result is pictured here, and I have to say I am very impressed with the quality. It looks great, the frame is very sturdy and hard-wearing, and they have thought of all the little details - attaching a hanging device, and small pads at the bottom to stop it marking the wall. My Snapbox Canvas meets the approval of my nephew as well, who had a winning smile on his face when he saw it!

Visit the Snapbox website and see what they can do, I'd say the service is well worth the money.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
