Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Every Kind of Mom

Can't figure out what to get mom for Mother's Day? Browse these photo-themed gift ideas – there's one for every kind of mom.

For the chef mom…

If your mom's food is still the main reason you head home for the holidays, and if you're more likely to find her in the kitchen (even when everyone else is eating), gift her a personalised mug or set of placemats. You can customise them with photos of the family, of her, or of her favourite, home-cooked, dishes.



For the hobbyist mom…

If your mom is all about the baking / horse riding / dancing / yoga / pottery / race-car driving, why not create a personalised photobook, filled with images of her favourite hobby. Use photos of her doing her hobby, amazing pics of others doing it in action, or quotes about the hobby.

For the arts and crafts mom…

Some mothers are born arts and crafts gurus. They can scrapbook all day and papier-mâché all night. Those moms will love cute and quirky gifts, like personalised snow globes and – our favourite – hardwood tree decorations. Why not give her a full set, so she can make a whole family-themed tree in December?



For the photographer mom…

If your mother never puts down the camera, consider choosing some of her best work, and printing it on high-quality canvases for her home. Choose a skinny canvas for a sleeker look, or print one image across three, six or nine tiled canvas blocks for a more contemporary and fresh feel.



For the mom who has everything…

Let's be honest, we've gone through a lot of Mother's Days. You've probably given your mom almost everything she could need. If it feels like she already has it all, get her a RapidStudio gift card. They're beautifully designed, thoughtful and will let her pick and choose the photobook or print she'd like the most.

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

Paint By Shadow Canvases:

Paint By Shadow Canvases:
RapidStudio and CraftRoutes got back in touch with their inner artist in Pretoria last week.
CraftRoutes, a specialist arts and crafts shop in Pretoria, invited Paint-by-Shadow to be the flagship product at their annual exhibition in the Kolonnade Shopping Mall, Montana Park.


Our largest size (80 x 120 cm) canvas was placed on the stand and throughout the 6 days of exhibiting, the canvas was painted by myself (product developer), Sue Peddle (owner of CraftRoutes) and all the sales staff from the store.


The King Protea image was developed for Sue and her shop, which reflected the mood of Heritage Day.  This image also show cases the Proudly South African product Paint-by-Shadow truly is.




Have you always wanted to be an artist but thought it was too difficult?
We have developed an innovative new product called “Paint-by-Shadow. Paint-by-Shadow is a great starter product that takes any of the initial apprehension and unknowns out of the painting process.



When you…
