I just love oversized art, don’t you? Grab this FREE “I will never stop loving you” printable! At 11″ x 14″, it’ll look great framed on the wall, or you can also resize it down to fit into a smaller frame. You can even make it into a sweet card or gift tag. Makes a great baby shower or Valentine’s Day gift too!
Last week I shared a letter with you that I had written to my son about what a mother’s steadfast love really looks like.
You can find that post right here.
But, actually, my thoughts about all this love stuff really started with this free printable that I’m giving to you today!
About a year ago, I began watercolor painting this phrase as a way to process something difficult that I had recently gone through. Unfortunately, some parts of the painting were ruined, and I never quite finished it.
But I still loved it and wanted to share it with you. Rather than repainting it all (because I don’t have time!), I decided to digitally create a watercolor version that I could share.
For FREE. 🙂

At 11″ x 14″, it’s a nice large size to frame and display on the wall. Although it won’t fit through your home printer (unless you resize it to 8″ x 10″ or smaller–see the instructions to do this below!), it’s super easy to take it to your local print store, like Staples or Office Depot, and have it printed out there for relatively cheap.
This watercolor print looks especially great on a nice, matte white cardstock.
Also, did you know that Amazon has a photo printing service that is really great? One of the perks to Amazon is that your photos can qualify for free shipping on eligible orders over $25. And, of course, Prime members get free shipping! So if you’ve got other shopping to do, add your photo order on and shipping is free. Nice. And I think it will end up being cheaper than Staples or Office Depot/Office Max.
“So, what can i do with it?” you ask
Besides simply framing it and putting it on your wall, have you ever thought about how many beautiful uses a print like this can have?
- How about on a gallery wall in your hallway alongside other favorite pictures?
- In a sweet baby boy or girl’s nursery
- Ever thought of scaling it down and printing it out as a card? (It would look lovely printed onto a nice, white cardstock.)
- Kid’s playroom would be sweet
- You could even use it as a notebook or journal cover
- It sure would be sweet as a gift tag for a loved one!
- Scale it down, frame it, and set it on:
- your kiddo’s dresser
- the bathroom counter
- the kitchen counter
- your bedside table
- your office
- or even as a surprise in your child’s or hubby’s lunchbox 🙂
how to scale it down
In case you’re wondering, scaling it down is actually really easy!
11″ x 14″ prints can easily be scaled down to 8″ x 10″ or 4″ x 5″. Perfect size to fit into smaller frames.
If you use Windows, follow these steps using the “Paint” program, which is found on every Windows computer:
- To bring up the “Paint” program, type “paint” into your Windows search bar found at the very bottom of your screen. (It should be just to the right of the windows menu in the lower left hand corner of your computer).
- Select and open the “Paint” program.
- From “File,” click “Open.”
- Choose the file you’re wanting to open. (In this case, the file I’m sharing with you is called “Never-Stop-Loving-You-11×14.jpg”)
- Choose the “Home” tab at the top of the program, and select “Resize.”
- We will be resizing using pixels, so check “Pixels.”
- Uncheck “Maintain aspect ratio.”
NOTE: If you want to resize using percentages, see my explanation below for Mac users and the Percentages Chart. Those percentages will work for Windows too. Just be sure to check “Maintain aspect ratio.”
- Using the chart below, enter the pixel dimensions that you want your picture to be.
So for example, if I want my picture to be 4″ x 5″, I would put these pixels in:
1200 for horizontal
1500 for vertical
9. Click enter, then save, and you’re good to go!
Unfortunately, I do not own an Apple desktop or laptop, so I can’t give you direct instructions about how to do it on your Mac.
However, here is Apple’s support page. It explains how to easily resize your image for printing if you’re a Mac user.
The instructions show you how to resize using percentages, rather than pixels. So here’s another handy little chart showing the percentages you will want to use to resize your image.
(Note: You can also use these percentages to resize in Windows as well–just be sure to click “Maintain aspect ratio.”)
I hope you enjoy this print as much as we have!
