Birth Announcement Ideas

Announcement 005

We never sent out birth announcements which makes me sad. I had even scoured the best of the interweb for birth announcement ideas and found some real winners. Not that anyone didn’t know she was born thanks to Facebook, but I love sending and receiving paper mail. It’s such a lost art. I love sending out Christmas cards too, but with postage that can get so expensive.

Anyway, I just got my newborn photos from my very talented sister-in-law, Kensie M Photography and was looking at birth announcements on Pinterest and said to myself, “Self, you could make these. So I did. Just because I didn’t mail them out doesn’t mean I can’t show them off here. I used picmonkey and a little creativity and this is what I came up with.

I was really in favor of more colorful fun designs as opposed to classic or simple. There were a lot more birth announcement ideas that I liked but didn’t play around with. You can see them here on my Pinterest board.
