Creating happy memories with Snapfish UK

This year I turned 30 in April and as a family we decided to celebrate by going on a very big holiday to Dubai and Australia. My mum, sisters and stepdad live in Australia and i'm lucky if  I get to see them once a year. I knew with baby number 2 on the way that trips as far as Australia would be very difficult soon so for my 30th I wanted one last big, family holiday, with just the 3 of us. We had a fantastic time. Eva was the happiest i've ever seen her and we have so many wonderful memories. As you can imagine we took hundreds of pictures.

As per usual we were wondering what to do with all the photos that we had taken. We'd decided to redecorate our living room and ended up with an empty wall. Our living room is now beach themed so it seemed the ideal opportunity to do something with our holiday photos. 

Snapfish have a new slim canvas range and we were asked if we would like to review some. I jumped at the opportunity as I knew our holiday photos would be perfect. There are lots of different sizes in the canvas range to choose from which make them perfect for a feature wall. It took us a while to decide on which photos to choose but once we had creating the canvases and ordering them were very easy.

They arrived quickly which is always great. We were really happy with how they turned out. Most of the pictures we used were actually taken from a mobile phone and sometimes the quality of the picture isn't as good as an actual camera so I was worried this would effect the way the canvas looked. Luckily it didn't.

The slim canvas prints are exactly what they say and are slimmer than normal canvases. I think this allows you to be more creative with the layout and the way you feature them on your wall. We had a few different sizes and therefore we were able to play around with different layouts to find which 'pattern' looked the best. We were spoilt for choice. There are endless ways that you can display these canvases and they still give your wall a modern, clean, look.

I love the fact that every time I look at my beautiful wall, I am reminded of so many cherished memories. I think this is one of the major benefits of actually putting your pictures onto a canvas. I can't stop smiling when I see them. They are also a great talking point for our family and any other members of the family. It allows us to reminisce about happy times and whenever friends and family members comment on them we get to tell them all the wonderful stories behind the images. 

Overall, we are extremely happy with these canvases. I can't recommend them enough. I love how easy they are to order and create. I think the slim style allows you to become more creative with how you can display them on a feature wall and I think that they are very reasonably priced. They certainly have made our living room a lot more appealing.

Have you ordered slim canvases before?



  1. They are brilliant. You've convinced me

  2. Ooh I'll def have to check them out. We have so many photographs from trips just stored away on our hardrive, it would be nice to get some of them on display! We've got some great ones from our honeymoon and a christmas trip to NYC!
