If you’ve got kids, you may be overwhelmed by the amount of artwork you’ve accumulated over the years. Even celebrities like Ryan Reynolds and Kristen Bell are overrun with “beautiful garbage”, but there’s no need to feel guilty about throwing out their art.

Just in time for Mother’s Day and as part of its Free the Fridge campaign, Aura Frames has launched a new in-app photo scanner that will let parents archive and show off their kids’ art (as well as physical photos) in a beautiful smart photo frame. It’s simple and easy to use. You just scan the image in the mobile app and opt to make it part of the frame’s slideshow, and the images can easily be shared with grandparents, or even added to a dedicated frame in your kid’s room.

Aura’s Carver Luxe Smart Photo Frame was named one of Oprah’s Favorite Things for 2021, and has received more than 4,100 five-star reviews on Amazon.

“All in all, this is a really cool frame! It’s really well made, has a nice design, is REALLY easy to use and the images are really crisp and clear,” wrote one person.

“Picture quality is great. The unit is solid and won’t tip over easily (as many digital frames do). Even the box is gift quality,” wrote another.

A third commented: “I purchased this frame for my mother’s 80th birthday. She says it’s the best birthday gift she has ever received. We all love that we can upload photos and share them instantly,”

The frames are available in a range of styles and colors to suit any room and design aesthetic. The Carver Luxe features a widescreen display and a signature geometric design, while the Mason and Mason Luxe are freestanding frames that have been seemingly carved from stone. Finally, the Smith frame is Aura’s flagship design with a bold patterned stainless steel frame.

Aura Frames start from $159 and are available to purchase from 2000 stores worldwide.
