{ Friday Finds } BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENTS

Friday, August 12, 2011


I had high hopes of designing my own baby announcement this time round, but who am I kidding? While I'm a HUGE fan of graphic design, photography and projects that involve needles & thread, my skills in all 3 areas are seriously lacking. Instead I resort to Etsy and my fellow - more talented - Canadian friends.


It seems like just yesterday we were mailing these bad boys out. As you can see my "mommy blinders" were on at the time - what I thought was the cutest newborn pic ever now looks like a photo stolen from Gollum's baby album...


For this week's Friday Finds I unearthed some boy-inspired, Canadian-made, super-duper cute birth announcements... ENJOY!

I assure you Baby K is a boy and eventhough Grace Printables markets their above "belle" design for little bambinas, I think the colour combination of robin's egg blue and zesty orange is masculine enough to announce our little bambino's arrival as well... for only $10.00 CAD it's a baby announcing bargain!


I love the simplicity of this announcment from Hattrick Design. The fact that we can share up to 4 photos of Baby K on 1 single card and that it's listed for only $12.00 CAD makes this "we loved you before you were born" design a definite contender. Oh and the shop owner has TRIPLETS!


I like to call this one "just the basics" but it's real  name is "colourful letters". Birth announcements typically end up on our magnet infested fridge so I'm all about this $14.00 CAD Cards by Meagan {Hamilton, Ontario} design that's less about clutter and more about cuteness.


PaperBag Printz out of Barrie, Ontario offers up some seriously sweet stickers & cards; I zeroed in on this $15.00 CAD "micah" announcement because I adore the name almost as much as the design. You just have to read the shop owner's profile - does she not sound like my new best friend?


P.S. I just got a photo sneak peek of the custom his & her monsters I ordered for Saigelette & Baby K last week...

Introducing Sadie & Kai from laaf...

Can't wait to meet them in person.
Thanks again Holly!
