    Default Baby Announcements

    I want to have my baby announcements planned out, but not made yet. (I want either pink or blue and I won't know that till I pop)
    I'm drawing a blank on ideas though. Can you guys post some that you have made?
    I think I want to incorporate a picture into the card instead of sending a separate photo with, not sure though. I guess a photo card isn't completely out of the mix but I would like to use my New Arrival cartridge. Any ideas? I have no brain lately.

    here is the one we made for Allie. It was digital though, so not much help for what you are looking for.

    Hmm. Since you don't know what you are having, it's gonna be kind of difficult to get any of them pre-made. Are you going to have time after dealing with a newborn? When I registered at Target, they gave me a bag that had a $20 gift card with Shutterfly. I used that to just make some quick photo cards. I still had to pay for shipping but it wasn't more than $10 after all that I ordered and it only took an hour or so to put it together.

    I did digi for Wyatt, but only because I waited until after he was born....and I was way too tired to think

    Can you start out cutting some things from new arrival in more neutral colors and then add a picture? Like make a frame using the animals from the cart and that use the pink or blue as background or just insert a picture? It's so hard not knowing what your having and trying to make them early...That was the ONLY thing I regretted about not knowing sooner.

    I didn't know with the last two, so it isn't really anything new. At this point I just don't really have any ideas at all. Cards are hard for me

    If you wanted to start pre-making them, I'd start cutting out something "baby" in a yellow or green color. Then you could add a blue or pink bow or something at the end. I intend to start on our birth announcements as soon as Christmas is over, so I'll post what I come up with. But we know we are having a boy, so it will probably be something with planes or boats or something??
