    the coolest birth announcements…EVER!
    you rock!

  28. Jamie February 29 2012 at 9:36 am #

    Hey I just found your blog via pinterest! I am actually about to make a baby shower invite similar to your birth announcement, and just wondering if you had these printed somewhere professionally, or if you printed them off your printer at home? and how that worked with the watercolor paper you used? They are really beautiful!

    • andrea February 29 2012 at 9:51 am #

      hi jamie! thanks for stopping by :) i did have these printed at a pro lab. i love the softness of the watercolour paper for them but i’m not sure how it would work on a home printer. perhaps worth a try? you could definitely sew on the regular glossy postcard style announcements/invites as well!

  29. Jamie February 29 2012 at 11:54 am #

    Thanks andrea! I agree thats probably the better way to go, especially for a large quantity. and i love your idea of using watercolor paper! Thanks for your help and ideas!

    Hi!
    Just found your blog via pinterest and I am officially in love with these birth announcements. I am having a baby soon and would loooooooooove to do a similar idea. You are so creative! These are so beautiful!

    I have a couple questions though:

    Did you print the photo on watercolor paper as well? Or is it a regular print on matte photo paper?

    thank you!

    • andrea February 29 2012 at 8:02 pm #

      thanks elyse! it’s actually two identical double sided announcements sewn together, so yes, both sides are watercolour paper :)

  31. Shara February 29 2012 at 1:05 pm #

    IN LOVE ! I Love love love everything about these.

  32. Suse February 29 2012 at 8:32 pm #

    LOVE these! And his little face? And you for being so dang crafty! Xoxo

  33. devon March 4 2012 at 9:42 pm #

  34. ag. March 7 2012 at 9:55 am #

    Oh my goodness, these are darling! So sweet! Amazing job and seems so perfect for announcing a baby!

  35. lauren March 7 2012 at 2:35 pm #

  37. Bekah March 27 2014 at 6:54 pm #

    Just wondering…what type of needle/thread/sewing foot did you use to do this?!?

    • andrea March 31 2014 at 10:14 am #

      i just used the standard foot and needle that were on my machine! (there may be a better option, but it worked for me!)
