Sadie Ryan Tile Review & Giveaway

So, a few weeks ago I was contacted by a company about doing a product review. I visited their site and looked around for awhile and I was so impressed with what I saw. I immediately replied "Of course! But can you make it a product review AND giveaway?" {I'm always thinking of you guys ;} The company got back to me right away saying that they can certainly make that happen.

And here we are. I'm so excited to share this with you.

Sadie Ryan Keepsake Tiles is a company that I had never heard of before a few weeks ago. Hell, it's a concept I'd never heard of until now.

When the company agreed to do the giveaway along with the review, they asked me to send the file I wished to have printed on the tile and that they'd ship it out to me right away.

Hmmm... what should I do? Wedding invite? Carter's birth announcement? Brynn's birth announcement? After looking through their site, I decided to redesign a simple birth announcement for Brynn and send it on over. If I liked it, I could always order more.

This is what I came up with...
And this is how it turned out...
Ummm, how gorgeous is that!?!?!?! My only request to the company was that the tile be printed in color. When I opened the shipment box, I was delighted to find, not only my tile, but this gorgeous easel as well...
Sigh.

Here are a few more detailed pictures of the tile. It's ceramic, about 1/4 of an inch thick, and boy is it heavy!
Just look at the detail at the top.... it's gorgeous!
Although the easel is sold separately, the tile hangs on the wall as well. Just make sure you have a strong nail ;)After hanging the tile to see how it would look on the wall, I decided to keep it there! I just love that the last thing I see when I walk out of Brynn's room is her pretty little 1-day-old face. =)
So, what will I do with the easel, you ask? Why buy a tile for Carter, of course. Yep, I plan to design a similar birth announcement for Carter's tile and put that with the easel on the shelf in his room.

My only complaint {if you want to call it that} is that Brynn's tile is the larger size {10.75" x 6.5"} and you can hardly see the top of the gorgeous easle {one of the reasons I decided to hang it on the wall!} I plan to order the smaller-sized tile for Carter {8.75" x 7"} and place it on the easel so that you can still see the top design. Have no idea what I'm talking about? See the picture from their website below:With the smaller tile, you still get to see the gorgeous detail of the easel as well!

Guys, I'm telling ya... you want one of these. And here's your chance...

I went to the sadie ryan tile site. I would have my son's birth announcement on a tile like yours.
Long - 10.75 x 6.50 inches.
I really love this idea! never heard of it until you posted it.

Mrs Dully said...

I "liked" your page on facebook!

The Morrison's said...

I think this is a great idea!
I like this one:
Description
This tile was made for a charity debutante ball. As you can see the graphic at the bottom of the invitation was included on the tile. You have the option to include or exclude graphics on your tile when you order.

The Size
Short - 8.75 x 7.00 inches

I think I would get a picture of all 3 of my kids printed on it.

I Like Jenni from the blog on face book

I voted for you on baby blogs

Mrs Dully said...

I am in LOVE with this idea, and even if I don't win this give away, this is definately something I will end up purchasing.

We like:
Description
This square birth announcement tile included the outside border on the tile.

The Size
Short - 8.75 x 7.00 inches

I have a photography coming to Lyla's first birthday party. ALL of our family will be here for it, and that simply never happens, so I would hope to get our big family picture printed on it. Then I would order one for everyone for Christmas presensts. In fact, I think half of my christmas shopping has been taken care of for 2011! ha ha.

Thanks Jenni for doing this!

Not to be morbid but I would most definitely get a picture of our beloved dog, Madison, who passed away suddenly in October. I have been looking for something unique to do in her memory and I think this would be beautiful! Soooo much prettier than a garden stone (which every single one just reminds me of a tombstone) or a plain old picture in a frame.
Thank you for this wonderful idea!
