Baby Announcements

Hello Blogging World!  I'm so excited to join your ranks.  Let's get 2014 off to a good start. :)

I actually crafted these baby announcements for our immediate family back in September, but love how it turned out so wanted to share with you.

I got the frames from World Market and Michaels.  The card stock and vellum overlays all came from Michaels as well.  I found a free template for the design in the middle online and printed the message, as I'm most definitely not artistic enough to do it by hand.  All in all, I think they turned out pretty well.  And they double as a keepsake as well as an announcement of our new little ones.  I packaged them in padded shipping envelopes with sign sticker letters from Staples.

I got my inspiration from this product on Etsy by SlightImperfections.

And this blog post from KimberlyMichelle.

As I am not nearly as artistic or crafty as either of these talented folks, I came up with my own way to make something special. :)

For the rest of our family and friends we made 4x6 photo cards to send out once we hit the 12 week mark.  My husband actually created these for us, and I love the way they turned out as well.

Hope you enjoyed my first blog post, and the many more to come on all things fashion, crafty, and cooking.
