  • Don’t forget to include: “Don’t make me turn this car around!” or “Sweetie, I love you, but…”
  • Use a photo of her as the background to make this gift even more personal.
  • To add quotes to your project, select “+Caption” and choose from over 80 typefaces. We suggest you just stick to two or three different styles.

Pregnancy Story Canvas Prints

Tips and Tricks

  • Use photos from each month or trimester and create an inter-connected canvas print display that showcases her pregnancy story from beginning to end.
  • Mix and match sizes, backgrounds and memories to create a display that showcases every powerful moment.
  • To keep the display consistent, we recommend sticking with one or two Picaboo backgrounds to use across your canvas print display.
